#2. Continuance Rechargeable Battery with USB Port Source

Continuance is an iF concept design entry for 2011. This is so simple. Continuance is a set of batteries with a USB interface on the side. The batteries are rechargeable plus dole out some juice to stranded gadgets that are starved of power. Handy, compact and a totally do-able concept! Apparently, Continuance is unavailable design concept for the time being, but if you’re interested in this kind of USB powered battery, you might like to check the available USB rechargeable battery.

#4. Pizza Scissors- The Greatest Scissors I’ve Ever Seen

I just ordered a pair of these scissors, called “scizzas,” from Dreamfarm, an amazing Australian design firm that specializes in cool kitchen tools.
Why We Love It: The scizza has one side that sits flat while the other blade cuts, making it perfect for pizza, fabric, wrapping paper and the like. I am terrible at cutting straight and the moment I saw it, I knew it was for me. For $17, I’ll be cutting pretty.

#5. Washing Hands With The Aqueduct Faucet & Handle Extender

The Aqueduct Handle Extender is in my opinion – an okay idea but I still think an adult needs to be with a little one when handling water (especially hot) so not sure if this is so necessary. Find out more and visit aqueduct.com

The Sand Glass is a new look at traffic lights. Surely people must be frustrated with the current design, which is why we have seen THREE DIFFERENT DESIGNS recently. Make this the fourth dimension using the sand-hour-glass as its model.

Why We Love It: LED lights trickle down to make an obvious statement, regarding the time left for the lights to change. Easy and intuitive.

#12. Solar Charging while Parking

Who will run the world for the next 100 years? Envision Solar President and CEO argues that it will be whoever has abundant sources of power. That is constructive power, rather than destructive power, which is essential to run the information and technology industries that our world is entirely dependent on. Additionally, Wheatley states that energy equals . And, with less than 1% of the world’s fresh available for use, desalination is becoming an increasingly plausible solution. The only problem now is that energy is expensive. But, once cities have the will to switch over to renewables, that will no longer be an issue. Could you imagine San Diego as an net exporter of ? Desmond Wheatley can.

#13. Drive Safer With no more Blind Spots (rear view mirror)

Why We Love It: This 16-inch mirror eliminates your blind spots with a 180-degree field of view — for reference, your ordinary car mirror only gives you 52 degrees. The size of the mirror allows you to see adjacent vehicles until they are visible in your peripheral vision, and it also reduces headlight glare by 50 percent. The No Blind Spot Rear View Mirror is used by police officers and professional racecar drivers to eliminate blind spots, and offers a distortion-free reflection across a five-lane highway. It attaches easily by clamping to your existing rear view mirror, and weighs only 10 ounces.
