Living Kitchen Wall | Multi-Touch Nanotechnology

Nanoscience is proceeding at an unnerving pace, revealing nanomaterials and nanoscience discoveries thought to be futuristic, far-fetched or even science fiction-worthy mere decades ago – but what about daily-life applications, turning these incredible innovations to the needs of an everyday home?

Michaël Harboun has conceived of a “Living Kitchen” that animates unlike even the most forward-thinking sci-fi film, using nanobots that can shape themselves along programmed paths to become dynamic kitchen fixtures that flex out and fold right back into the wall as needed.

It is a bit like a real-life touchscreen in three dimensions – perhaps the iPad and other computer technologies are merely the 2D precursors to this kind of interactive 3D design, which might become the single greatest space-saving gadgetry since the hide-a-bed.



I’d bet NOOKA has a watch for you…
Though, you might have to learn to tell time from Anakin Skywalker or an eastern grade-schooler.


Tell time on this…


Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has a new collaboration with odm design. It’s a colorful collection of watches labeled the JCDC U.F.O. Bloc Collection.  (4 red yellow blue green color displays light up one by one with sound!)

O.D.M. is a brand of highly designed technical timepieces created for the style conscious consumer.  Their mission is to be “original, dynamic & minimalist” and this philosophy is what inspired our name.  ODM remains true to that with every single watch they design.

Radio Eyes Peer Through Walls and Darkness

A method of tracking of people’s movements behind walls or total darkness has been developed. Its inventors have come up with dozens of applications, from dealing with hostage crisis to taking care of elder people.


In development since 2005, the Manned Cloud is a concept for a floating luxury hotel. The design features two passenger decks with space allocated for twenty cabins, a restaurant, bar, library, fitness center and a spa.


Can we really eat digitally printed food?


Concept Designs for a Digital Gastronomy
In collaboration with Amit Zoran

Food is one of the fundamental ingredients of life. We cannot go a day without it before experiencing discomfort and the kinds of food we eat and how we eat them are closely intertwined with our cultural practices, physical environments and personal health. Nonetheless, we have been cooking progressively less.
