Dandella Shows You the Way

Van Mensvoort
February 22nd 2009

How to navigate the urban jungle? Adopting the metaphorical image of a dandelion in flight, Dandella is a GPS device that shows you the way.

Inspired by how young sunflowers always point towards the sun, Dandella simplifies the complex interface of current GPS devices to a notion of "follow where it points". Dandellas can be programmed to track each other and their buds response by pointing towards one another.

The intuitive design should allow its users to find each other by following where the bud points, making it suitable for people of different ages from different walks of life.

awwee...this makes me smile. It's so cute and potentially useful. I wish it was real ^^

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
