Earth from space

This British inventor has taken his digital camera to new heights; 21 miles up to be exact. All it took was a polystyrene box with a GPS tracker, a halfway digital camera, an extra large helium balloon and a parachute.

Product Innovation, Upcoming Inventions

ichimenew doorbell invention

Ding dong, iChime, the programmable door bell is here. Made to play any recorded sound or MP3 that you choose, you can customize any greeting you want. It even works as an automated door bell to sound when someone enters a home or business.

So the next time you hear the door bell ring, you don’t really have to hear the door bell ring.

Pick A Package

General Design, package design

I recently took a look at all the different ways I can buy Coca-Cola. I was surprised to find that it comes in 3 liters, 2 liters, and twin pack 1 liters. 24, 20 and 16 ounce bottles. 12 packs, 20 pack cases and 24 can cubes. 8 ounce cans and 12 ounce cans. Plastic, aluminum and glass containers. I can even get a fountain drink filled up to 64 ounces.

Packaging has been approached from every angle and the branding has blended into every medium possible. Coke has done wonders, taking their product to consumers by packaging it in every size and variation conceivable. So which package do you pick?
