  • The Flypaper robotic clock

    Flies can be a severe nuisance especially in warm weather, but what if your clock takes a leaf out of venus flytrap books and consumes them for you?

    Brought to you by U.K.-based designers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau, the Flypaper robotic clock earns its keep by trapping flies through paper stretched over a roller mechanism, which are then digested in order to provide the clock power.

  • Aegis Parka

    The Aegis Parka, taking a tip from the mythical Aegis shield of Zeus, is a jacket designed to combat urban pollution.

    Created with a scaly fabric made from ceramic particles, the heat and abrasion-resistant garment notifies its wearer if hazardous molecules are within the vicinity -- and a sensor warns you of how dangerous the pollution is.
