A Cool Way to Drink Hot Tea

Product Innovation
Teapots may be a thing of the past with this sleek, new invention.

As opposed to old-fashion teapots, the “Quattro” which was designed by Snezana Jeremic, allows the person to pour the tea with a simple tip.

This device also can be inverted and used as a handle which makes it portable.

This is Not Your Average Lunchbox

Innovators & Creators, Product Innovation
The Bento is a single-portion takeout or homemade meal that is very common in Japanese cuisine. Traditionally, it is a box-shaped container that is filled with rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables.

There are different types of Bento Boxes that are elaborately and creatively arranged. The first style is the “kyaraben”, which are usually decorated to look like popular characters from Japanese cartoons, comic books or video games.

Another type of type of Bento Box is the “oekakiben”” which means the “picture bento”. This style is decorated to look like people, animals, buildings, etc.

Safety Tattoos

General Design, Graphic Design, Product Design

I can’t say that I am a fan of temporary tattoos, but these might be one of the more clever uses I have seen.

This temporary tattoo has a writable surface and pen, so parents can apply them before sending kids off on field trips and excursions.

You can list contact info, allergies, medical conditions, and even use a QR code.

Laser Cut Produce

General Design

A Spanish company, titled Laserfood, is rolling out a new use of a seemingly old technology.

Rather than peeling off traditional food label stickers from your product with markings like traceability information, business logos, and drawings, consumers can eat the markings being etched on the skin of the produce.
