The Qwerty Lineage project was an exploration for LG into the future of smartphones with physical keys. The challenge was to show them something fresh and new while at the same time maintaining a functional keypad.

Aquabot Pura 4x
Aquaproducts is a leader in the pool cleaning robot market. Their Aquajet series is the most simple and effective out there. The design however has not changed in 20 years.

Isla Urbana Tlaloque
Isla Urbana is a non-profit organization that believes a scarcity of clean water for humans is an unacceptable injustice. Daily, millions of people living in Mexico City strain to meet their fundamental water demands. To address the lack of water supply in some areas of Mexico City, Isla Urbana has designed a system that collects and cleans rainwater to be used in homes and other buildings. They have already installed 725 systems. I was offered the unique opportunity to work with them and help develop part of their system. The Tlaloque is a first flush tank that separates the dirtiest water from the water that goes into the system.

This product is a wall mounted outlet designed for the Peapod, but that could be used anywhere, that gives you electricity use reading and costs.
