What we dislike

3. DOTS


Named DOTS, this portable coffee machine is a perfect fit for an automated vehicle, but it can be utilized for other on-the-go scenarios as well. The DOTS can be used for those long and tiring car journeys, where you need to get somewhere fast, but cannot stop for a quick coffee break.

The coffee machine has a removable button, so you can adapt it however you want, depending on your need for it. It uses coffee capsules instead of the usual brewing method, making the coffee machine easier to use.

What we like

What we dislike

  • It has a lid to place a straw on it, but sipping hot coffee with a straw seems weird and uncomfortable

What we like

  • The pin looks like a fashionable button-style accessory and has color options to choose from

What we dislike

  • The aroma will last depending on the quality of the aromatic oil, so you will need to partake in some trial and error till you find a long-lasting fit

These adorable suitcases are inspired by sushi! They were created keeping in mind the dual tones of nigiri, with an element of ‘white rice’ topped up by a colorful ingrediant. Merging luggage with sushi doesn’t seem so odd, when you imagine these containers on airport conveyor belts and how similar they look to sushi on food conveyor belts in Japan!

Why is it noteworthy?

The luggage come in three popular types of sushi – yellow egg “tamago” design, brown eel “unagi”, and orange salmon “sake”, giving you the choice between three adorable, functional and whimsical suitcase designs.

What we like

What we dislike

  • Isnt a groundbreaking new design, and is more focused on aesthetics than functionality

Why is it noteworthy?

The clothes steamer doesn’t need any water addition for a week or so, and doesn’t compromise the daily ironing needs. This is because it has larger panels, and three-layer heating bodies which support an efficient vaporization and better steam volume.

What we like

  • Equipped with a new feature to prevent high-temperature water splashes

What we dislike

  • It’s a concept, so we don’t know how well it will translate into a tangible product

9. Carry On Shampoo

It has a compact design that comes conveniently packaged with your regular bottle of shampoo. You can carry the mini bottle with you on your travels, and refill it when you’re running low!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Carry On is an economy-sized 1 liter, and it comes with its own handle built into the bottle’s design. But when you buy it off the shelf, the handle has a carry bottle that perfectly fits into it like a jigsaw puzzle. The smaller one is 50ml, and can get you through a week-long holiday.

What we like

  • Lets you use your favorite shampoo, instead of the substandard ones you get in hotel

What we dislike

  • The carry on bottle is quite small, so there is a chance of easily losing or misplacing it

It looks like a taco and can be used by both the speaker and listener!

Why is it noteworthy?

Looking like a little taco, the device can be utilized by both the speaker and listener. It is like those two-way cup devices you may have used when you were younger, but this time it is equipped with digital technology!
