Watering your plants is now easier than ever. 13-year-old Dylan Soh – with a little help from his dad – designed a self-watering solution that uses recycled plastic drink bottles and a GIY Stick that’ll do the watering for you. “Our mission is to make concrete jungles fertile. We created the GIY (Grow it yourself) stick so new gardeners will never over water their plants again.”

Bottles fitted with the stick easily transform into mozzie proof self-waterers that release water when the plants need it. “The top roots are breathing roots while those at the bottom are the water roots. If the top roots are too wet, the plant drowns or develops root rot. GIY Stick is designed to deliver water to the bottom, keeping the top soil dry, and stops weeds from growing.”

To make a self-watering pot, insert a piece of cloth into the stick, fill the bottle, fix the stick to the pot and you’re all set. If this sounds too complicated, visit their Kickstarter page for an instructional video.

Objects of Substate by State Property

“To us, objects are adornments of space, just as jewellery is adornment of the body.”

There are three things you need to know about State Property. First, the label was founded in 2014 by NUS trained Industrial Designer Afzal Imram and Central St. Martins trained Jeweller, Ruiyin Lin. Second, they have dropped their first collection. Third, the objects of the collection are conceptual representations of an idea the duo were curious about: “Jewellery breathed a certain way on the body, but where did they live removed from the context?”

“This was the question the objects of this collection answered. As a substitute for the canvas of the body, they function as an alternative museum to house their counterparts.”

You’ve got it. A statement-maker’s dream ! Shop the collection online or at selected retailers.

Banner Shuffle: Captain Lulo

The Arc Board, a one-upped skateboard

Ho Hung Yi, Toh Wei De, Tan Yong Sheng

Might as well push it to the max on the Arc Board, the world’s smallest and lightest electrical vehicle to get you anywhere and everywhere at a top speed of 25 km/h. Developed by Ho Hung Yi, Toh Wei De and Tan Yong Sheng, the board is designed to complement the public transportation system. Hung Yi tells me it is powerful enough to give an 18 km range per charge and small and light enough to be carried around with ease.

About the Team
Hung Yi graduated from the NUS Industrial Design Program, having worked his thesis project around the Last Mile Solution. While still working full-time as a sales manager at Procter & Gamble (Singapore), the Arc Board project started as a continuation of his thesis work, but has since moved in a much better direction than was originally planned. Wei De graduated from NUS in Mechanical Engineering with a strong passion for innovating and creating new products. The Lead Engineer at XYZ Printing, Wei De started the development of the Da Vinci 3D Printer, which has since become the market leader in the 3D printing industry. Yong Sheng graduated from Loughborough University (UK) with a degree in Sports Science with Management. He runs his own investment company, and has also started the Anytime Fitness Gym at Kallang Wave Mall. Yong Sheng provides fresh perspectives on running an effective business, and helps to keep the Arc Boards Team on level ground and moving forward constantly.
