A little whiteboard block to save your notes, messages and reminders. You can make one yourself buying the DIY kit.

I don't like extension cords! They are always lost somewhere in the drawer/closet/garage and the cable is always full with knots and kinks. Here is my solution!
Often when we use water we use lots of it. I wanted to show the beauty of just a single drop of water. I tested out different materials and surfaces that are hydrophobic. Just moving a single drop of water looks amazing. Using nano-technology I made 3 different games with it. Each game different to play and different to hold in your hand. more images here
Usually when a building/bathroom/shed etc. is being demolished a completely new one takes over his place. This is done without leaving any trace of what has been there before, perhaps a little picture on the wall but that's it. I was interested in using the materials from the old building in the new one.The entire project
When I went to the swimming pool I noticed that a lot of kids are running and playing around on this hard floors. I wanted to turn the swimming pool into a friendly swimming pool for children. I did this by making a soft floor made of rubber and foam. I made four different types of floor, each with another applications. Terras, walking, playing and sliding, and each floor has its own property. The floor comes in rolls which makes it fast to install and can be put directly on the concrete underneath. You don't see a drain since it is underneath the floor. Just swipe the water on the walking-area and the small holes guide the water to the drain.
Most of the products around us are made industrially. Although I am a big fan of craftsmanship I believe our world sometimes just needs products to be made industrially. I wanted to make a technical product by hand but still produceable for the industry.Click here to watch the entire project
