Pollution is everywhere so here is my idea for making the most of it.

Who says that British trains lack glamour? I was on a train recently and beside me was this sunglasses holder.

This reminds me of some things I made a while ago.

Recycle with your pockets

Recycle with your pockets

When I was a youngster I used to have an emotional attachment to the litter I made. For example if I took an orange from my house and went to a friends house to play, I wouldn’t be able to leave the orange peel in a bin at the house of my friend. I felt that the peel was from my house, and it would be distressed if it was left in a foreign place. So I would put it back in my pocket to return it to my house’s bin. Though I generally forgot to empty my pockets and so gathered a mix of receipts, tickets, sweet wrappers and organics. Even now I find I have so much in my pockets making it difficult to find anything. In this age of separating your rubbish for recycling here is the idea applied to pockets. Separating your plastic from your paper and orange peel will never be a problem again. This may not appeal to fashionistas as I was told that actually putting things in pockets is a big no no. The lumps ruin your lines apparently. © 2009

bottletops

I walked over a street which was covered in embeded bottle tops.  I thought there was something randomly beautiful to it, like art created by the Berliners.  I remembered this when seeing the gum observation on designobserver.com

Sitting on the fence seat
In a recent converstation my friend described my views on a particular subject as ‘wishywashy’. It is true that I like to keep an open mind on things and perhaps this seat design would be perfect for me in our future discussions.

Doorbell with inbuilt visitor statistics display

Website stats are an obsession for some people. How many visitors? What age are they? How long do they spend on the site? The list goes on. Here is my idea to take this statistical obsession one step further. A doorbell with built in home visitor statistics display. (C) Dominic Wilcox



Giant Frisbee Human Transportation

Giant Frisbee Human Transportation

Whenever I visit the park there are always some excellent Frisbee throwers. I find it slightly mesmerising watching that Frisbee glide on the air back and forth. While I was mid mesmerisation I thought to myself what if there was a giant Frisbee that we could strap ourselves into and go on journeys.
