#1 Silver Screen House
Sit atop your own roof and Netflix and Chill in style. By style we mean overlooking Los Angeles via the scenic Hollywood Hills.This is an actual house built along the ridgeline of the famous residential strip that comes with its own outdoor movie theatre. The main living area is shrouded in glass whilst a fireplace extends from the ceiling all the way into the main area. Besides breathtaking views, there’s also a pool to enjoy it all in during Summer. The outdoor screen is actually an exterior wall of the house and is visible from the driveway and dedicated viewing area on top of the garage. Take that, waterfront mansion guy.
#2 Domino’s Pizza Delivery Robot
Be afraid. Domino’s Australia have created a pizza delivery robot called DRU that will deliver the goods straight to your doorstep. It’s a self navigating robot which has a top speed of 20km/h and can avoid obstacles. Pizza thieves need not apply – the robot will only reveal its stash via a Domino’s app. Although if you wanted a free robot you could probably just take that. Watch the video to find out more.
#3 Baik Bicycle
If you’ve ever loved a bike but hated the way they look then the Baik concept is for you. It strips the conventional bike down to bare bones and takes minimalist riding to a whole new level. Dreamt up by Spanish designer Ion Lucin, the bike is sleek and cool from every angle. It’s set in raw carbon but riders can also opt for colour highlights in spokes and wheels. It is just a concept for now but given that wood bikes are making their way into the market, you can expect that this kind of bicycle won’t be far off.
