Over the period, we have seen a rapid change in the form and function of the automobiles, this with exception for delivery vehicles which more or less have remained the same as they were years ago. Changing the face of delivery vans, a bunch of designers, including Varun Niti Singh, Jing Zhang and Eunjong Cho, has come up with an innovative van dubbed the “Mini Modec” that is not just elegant to look at but functional in use as well. Featuring a sleek interior to commute up to three occupants in comfort, the new delivery van also includes rotatable armrests that move out of the way with the door for easy egress and ingress.

The easy way for elderly to keep healthy and mobile is to do a short walk. Although a short walk can be considered as light exercise, the elderly need to break their walk into manageable distances, take some rest for small intervals, enjoy the surroundings. Unfortunately, public seating is not placed frequently enough around rest homes and retirement villages. To accommodate these situations, Wanderest, a well engineered and ergonomic seat has been designed. It is constructed of 3 identical panels (extra panels can be added for a larger seat) that can be attached to a lamp post as a resting point. To combine the panels together, a stainless steel strap is put through the indentation at the back and the strap is bolted onto the panels at two points. Then the stainless steel strap can be bolted to the lamp post or attached with a clamp mechanism. The panels are shaped with a slight downward slope on the sitting part and installed at a perching height. This way, the elderly can slide on and off the seat comfortably, there’s no need to bend down just like conventional seat.

Remember Microsoft’s Magic Mouse competitor we talked about back in July? Well, it looks like the Arc Touch Mouse is real. Images have leaked from a German online store that show the mouse, with some specs too.

Other features include touch-scrolling, multi-surface tracking, a battery indicator, and 2.4GHz nano receiver. The price, roughly translated, is $69.95, but availability for America is currently unknown.

What happens when there is no power supply in the street light, in worse case, what if the light is broken? Unless you have a bionic eye or using a night vision goggles, walking through a congested road during dark nights would be a horrible experience.

There are a million iPad stands out there, or at least it feels that way. Designed by minimalist designer Michiel Cornelissen, the PadFoot is at least a different take on things. It’s constructed out of a piece of 3D printed polyamide with a wedge in it, that lets you stand the iPad in either portrait or landscape, or more, and is definitely the most portable one out there. Let’s hope it does its job well. It’s available now for $30.

An espresso machine that sits on a tabletop and pours a coffee cup is something we can easily see around. Now, even the espresso machine realized its time to stand up and rejuvenate in the form of Espresso on four legs, an innovative concept espresso machine that can ensure handy use along with extraordinary interior aesthetics. The cylindrical main body is mounted horizontally above the coffee cup with the support of a beautiful white shell, giving a feel of floating the espresso machine over the cup. Each side of the cylinder comprises a door to enter water through one door and coffee capsules through another. Operating the espresso machine is super easy with only two buttons to prepare short or long espresso.

It also uses Logitech’s PerfectStroke system, promising uniform tactile feedback across the entire surface of the key.
