One of the biggest challenges that people face when shopping for electronics and items that need to be delivered in boxes is the fact that they are packaged in a way that best safeguards them against damage but provides negligible assistance when it comes to carrying them manually. As a result, most users prefer to have such goods delivered to them which is not only time consuming, but also incurs unwarranted delivery charges that can only be avoided if the buyer decides to deliver the box themselves in case they have a car. Even then, carrying the box out to the parking lot can be quite a hassle and lifting heavy boxes has been identified as one of the major causes of lower back problems around the world! To make the process of carrying and delivering boxed goods simpler and more efficient for buyers, designer David Warwick Graham has come up with an innovative cardboard boxing strolley called the Move-it.
People with visual disabilities have to go through life not only with the incredible challenge of having to work and live in a world that is often not too accommodating to their ailment, and with the public infrastructure traditionally being developed for the sighted, it is often even more debilitating for the blind to navigate through public spaces with ease and on their own. What’s even more disheartening is that though there has been a conscious effort on part of public agencies to try and make public spaces more accessible to the blind, places like museums and zoos are still off-limits for people with visual disabilities. Ahmedabad, India-based exhibition and space designer Akanksha Jain has some up with a system that would allow the immensely popular Sundervan Zoo in Ahmedabad more accessible to the blind.
Computer accessories have evolved in their functionality over the years though their drab exterior remains unaltered with the exception of a few gaming mice that come in exciting colors and shapes.

Ever since the days of the gramophone, music players have been monopolized by monochromatic color themes and anything even slightly colorful is deemed funky or feminine. Though that hasn’t stopped men from going all out and buying all-black home entertainment systems no matter how much they clash with the interior schemes of their bachelor pads (or their wives’/girlfriends’ meticulously hand-picked home décor), there remains a wide gap in the market when it comes to music systems that can look as good as they sound. The “Presence” XL Speakers by Bodor Audio+ looks to rectify that situation by presenting a set of detailed hand-made equipment that is made to cater to each individual’s taste and décor theme.
