FoldnFix and Quickfix foldable mudguards from Full Windsor
Folding MudguardsFlagship FoldnFix and Quickfix mudguards
The founder of Full Windsor, product designer Mark Windsor explains that the basic aim behind the design language and construction of these mudguards was the urge to make a practical and easy to use product that can functionally be used in the course of the average urban biker's day.
Flagship FoldnFix and Quickfix mudguards
Offered in FoldnFix and Quickfix models, the flagship mudguards are created to resemble intricate origami and use the fold-up form of the art to allow bikers to easily fit the mudguards to their bikes. easily foldable and easier to store, the FoldnFix is the more permanent of the two solutions and comes with a more rigid construction and snap on clips and ties that take just a few moments to attach themselves to the bike's frame. The Quickfix is the slightly temporary mudguard from the range and takes a while longer to attach to the bike since it needs to be first folded and them fitted into place and held on through easily clickable snaps.
Perfect for bikers who need a quick-fix solution to transform their off-road bikes into more city-friendly ones, the Full Windsor mudguards are also super economical with the Full Windsor FoldnFix retailing for £13.99 and the Full Windsor Quickfix mudguard going for £14.99. Both the mudguards can be ordered from online bicycle accessory retailers Look Mum No Hands, London Condor Cycles, Wiggle and Cycle Surgery.

Passenger-friendly modular baseball furniture for airports
Baseball Furniture for AirportBaseball by YoonJung Heo
Drawing on the pattern of stitches on a baseball, the personal lounge furniture is a unique modular bit of furniture for public use that features a table and a seat in a unique slide out configuration. When not in use, the seat can be fitted inside the table to save space around the seat allowing people to pass through easily and when a passenger needs a seat, they can simply slide the ottoman-shaped stool out to seat themselves and use the tabletop to place their belongings on.

The magnetic locking system on the seat comes with a rotational hinge that allows the chair and table to "snap" together when closed and also "snap out" when it needs to be used.
Roll-a-call foldable cellphone concept would be fashioned out of fabric
Roll a CallConcept Mobiles by Sudhanwa Chavan
Since all the functions are independent of each other, there is no interference and the user does not need to discontinue the use of one function of the phone when the other is in use. For example, the user doesn't need to close the browser to access the keypad, the main phone menu doesn't need to be inaccessible when there is an incoming call, and the touch-access keypad is always at hand.
Concept Mobiles by Sudhanwa Chavan
However, what makes the Roll-a-call truly stunning is the fact that, just like the iRoll, this concept too comes to us in a foldable avatar. While the iRoll's form was predominantly inspired by the shape of a scroll, the Roll-a-Call is inspired by the shape of a rolled news paper and a handkerchief. The use of OLED technology allows the phone to be fully functional as well as thin enough to be easily folded. What makes this foldable handkerchief-like phone even more stunning as a concept is the fact that the designer intends for its outer shell to be made out of fabric which, if materialized, would make it the first ever piece of electronic equipment to be fashioned out of fabric.
The fabric used to craft the phone; shell would not only be waterproof but also coated with PU or PVC to make it a bad conductor of electricity. Being crafted out of textile, the phone would feel like a folded handkerchief in the users' pockets. Two USB ports would allow users to charge their phones using a laptop while using the other port to share data, videos and images, etc. while twin earphone jacks would also allow users to share the use of their phone's audio system with their friends.
