These bizarre Buddha-shaped pears were invented by a farmer in China who is planning to export his novel idea to the UK. Hao Xianzhang has created 10,000 of the mini marvels at his orchard this season and said he plans to take the fruits of his labour to Europe. A woman demonstrates a baby-shaped pear in Handan city, in north China’s Hebei province. Hao spent six years perfecting the intricate baby pears, carefully crafting each one which grows inside an individual mould. Despite their hefty cost of £5 each, locals in his home village of Hexia, in Hebia, northern China, have been snapping them up. Through this idea, you absolutely can create fruit shaped anything!

The Windi is a single-use catheter that helps babies get rid of excess gas. Designed to be safe and effective, The Windi cannot harm your baby if used as instructed.

The soft, pliable, hollow tube features a rounded tip that is long enough to reach pass the muscle that prevents the release of the gas, and also has a stopper to prevent an insertion too far.

What: How many times did you return from the market with a lot of fruits and thought to yourself: I need more fruit bowls? Well, let us tell you this: 1. you’re not alone and 2. you don’t really need a fruit bowl, as you need a fruit hanger. Simon Colabufalo presented at DesignEX 2012 in Sydney his innovative idea: a fruit hanger made in polished aluminum. The Eva fruit hanger is designed to actually bring the fruits back in the tree, thus being an innovative way of storing fruits. It’s an interesting concept and, if it ever goes into mass production, it will also be a great present for anyone. It’s a useful gift and also a functional one. The fruit is hanged by its stem, so you’ll have to be careful not to remove it. Being made in aluminum, the object is easy to clean. It goes well with a modern interior design and also in an office space. Where & How: For the moment, this is only a prototype. However, we provide you more ideas of fruit hanger.

Entrepreneur: Krystal O'Mara, founder of ReMain Eco Design and Consulting. O'Mara began transforming bikes into living room décor in February 2010. "Aha"moment: O'Mara created a table out of bicycle rims early last year to raise money for the silent auction at 24 Hours in the Canyon, an annual bike race in Amarillo,Texas, that benefits cancer research. That first table lit the spark; O'Mara continued designing and building furniture from spare bike parts and other recycled materials, including reclaimed wood. The self-proclaimed handy woman even taught herself how to weld. "I grew up in a family where we never hired anyone to do anything," she says. "I knew how to do a lot of home maintenance and painting, and I've always enjoyed upcycling old family furnishings." Biker chic: O'Mara incorporates assorted bicycle parts into each work. One of her tables had a top made entirely of cut-up tires. Recently, she made a chandelier from wheels and rims for a restaurant in Portsmouth, N.H.

You know you’ve come up with a pretty spectacular invention when the tech pundits are comparing you to Steve Jobs and Jobs himself invites you to give a private demo at his house. [Ren Ng and Steve Jobs] discussed camera and product design and Ng told Jobs he’d send an email with ideas about how Lytro might be incorporated into Apple products. Dr Ren Ng, 32, born in Malaysia, raised in Australia and now based in Silicon Valley, developed a revolutionary new kind of “light-field camera” for consumers while studying at Stanford University in California. The Lytro, which attracted $US50 million ($48 million) in venture capital, allows photographers to change the focus and depth of field on their pictures after they have been taken (the company’s tagline is “shoot now, focus later”). It does this by capturing all of the light in the scene from all directions to create what Ng calls “living pictures”.

Looking to grab a quick cup of coffee on the go? The next time you find it difficult to spot a coffee-shop, look around for the Velopresso. A coffee-store-on-wheels, this one was designed by Royal College of Art graduates Amos Field Reid and Lasse Oiva. In essence a pedal-powered cart, the Velopresso uses an old tricycle frame while the gears are alternatively used to propel the cart or work the coffee grinder! Using a small gas canister to boil water when needed, the Velopresso works as a low-carbon and low-energy business solution. Also, the designer duo is working on a system to recycle the coffee grinds into ethanol, which in turn could be used to create energy!

China seems to be a hotbed of independent development of new inventions recently. Inventing’s a tough business though. For example, “China’s Noah’s Ark” has dubious financial prospects. However, in central Chongqing, China, the Wang family has been enjoying their much more promising invention: a floating bed that can be stored in the ceiling! OK, the bed doesn’t really float as much as it’s suspended, but what exactly it’s suspended with is unknown.

The Coffeebrewer is best described as a disposable French press. Inside the pouch is a filter with 26 g of freshly ground specialty coffee. To brew 3 cups of coffee, all you need is to open it, pour ½ L hot water into it, and let it brew 5-8 min. The unique brewing system is designed to preserve the coffee’s natural oils. This enhances the delicate flavours and finer aromas of the coffee, which other wise can only be achieved by using a French press.

Every well-loved cat deserves their own place to catch a nap. Problem is, even the best-designed cat beds can still leave your living room looking cluttered and unsightly. If you've been looking for a cat bed that's more out of the way, you might want to try the Cat Crib, a mini-hammock that installs under a chair. Designed for use on chairs with four legs and a generous helping of space under the seat, you just tie the hammock's four straps around the legs, using them as posts. The taller the legs, the better, of course -- if that kitty in the picture had claustrophobia, for instance, he'd be freaking out like crazy before that product shot was ever snapped. We're guessing this could fit in smaller side tables, too, provided it has four legs that you can tie the straps onto.
The actual bed on the Cat Crib measures around 27 inches on all sides, so it should suffice for most normal-sized felines. If you have one of those overfed extra-large breeds, though, you might want to consider separate accommodations (you want a big cat, you buy a big cat bed). Bonus benefit if your cat ends up really taking to his new hanging bed: most of the furry mess in the house will end up either in the hammock or on the floor under the chair, so you can have an easier time keeping everything tidy. We're not sure what fabric isused, but it looks stretchy and comfortable. The product website says it's washing-machine safe, too, so there's zero hassle in cleaning it. The Cat Crib is scheduled to ship during the end of the summer. You can reserve one now for $29.

Doomsday creations are not a new idea. World Wars I and II saw the emergence of bomb shelters, with some of the more architecturally sound creations developed throughout the Cold War in light of the global nuclear threat. Last year, the re-emergence of the highly secretive ‘luxe doomsday’ bunkers reopened the sector, leading to what is the latest, and perhaps most creative, interpretation of post-apocalyptic architecture: The Kansas Missile Silo Condos. A 2012 doomsday group is charging thousands of dollars for admission to a survival bunker in their secret areas. Architectural designs that enable life post-doomsday have come back into fashion as we creep toward the much-publicised supposed December, 2012 Doomsday, when the Mayan calender ends.
Scientists worldwide have refuted 2012 doomsday claims, saying nothing will happen to the Earth this year. NASA scientists in theUS have taken to the web to dispell myths about doomsday as December approaches. "Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012," their website states. "Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012. ' When University of Kansas anthropology professor John Hoopes told the Daily Mail that “fear sells even better than sex” could go a long way toward explaining the recentre-emergence of the post-apocalyptic architecture.

According to a new study, experts are saying that Muslim tourists are a big niche market. In fact, this market alone is worth more than $126.1 million a year. This is a figure that is expected to continue growing. The report suggested that the figure was going to grow by 4.8 percent per year until 2020. This is of course being compared to the global average of just 3.8 percent. The report was called the Global Muslim Lifestyle Travel Market: Landscape and Consumer Needs. The report highlighted many important factors, including how airlines, tourism destinations, and resorts can benefit from engaging this market. There is a lot of money to be made in this market if people cater to it. Dinar Standard, which is a New York-based marketing research group, was the group that released the report. Overall, they advised and encouraged companies to cater to this market. They believe that the first companies to start doing this can actually pioneer the development to their liking. The study went on to focus on a number of destinations, airlines, and hotels that already engage with this niche market.

Nestle is sending a floating supermarket up the Amazon river in an attempt to reach customers not normally exposed to normal retail channels: The world’s largest food company will send aboat with 100-square meters (1,076 square feet) of supermarket space on a journey to 18 small cities and 800,000 potential consumers on the Para and Xingu rivers in Brazil, before starting the journey again. The vessel will carry 300 different goods including chocolate, yogurt, ice cream and juices. Though there might not be much profit in these kinds of customers today, Nestle and it’s competitors hope to profit in the future: Nestle expects as many as 1billion people in emerging markets to exit poverty and be able to afford its products in the coming decade. The foodmaker has adapted its products in such regions by offering smaller, cheaper versions of products such as Alpino ice cream and Ninho milk powder through direct distribution to make them more accessible to low-income shoppers. Unilever has also been building a distribution network into Brazil’s shantytowns.

The Island of The Dolls (Islade las Muñecas), located in the vast network of canals that lies to the south of Mexico City, near Xochimilco is one of the creepiest tourist attraction in Mexico. Here, among the branches and dead trees hang hundreds of old, mutilated dolls. The story goes that some half a century ago a little girl drowned off a small island hidden deep amongst the canals of Xochimico. The island’s only permanent inhabitant was a hermit named Don Julián Santana Barrera, who despite having a wife and family, chose to live alone on the island. Soon after the girl’s death Barrera fished out one doll after another from the canals. Convinced that this was a sign from the evil spirit, Don Julian Santana began hanging them on trees to protect himself from evil and calm the spirit of the dead girl. Soon Don Julián had made the entire island into a shrine.
Santana did not clean up the dolls or attempt to fix them, but rather put them up with missing eyes and limbs, covered in dirt. Even when dolls arrived in good shape, the wind and weather naturally decomposed them over time creating a gallery of eerie and ghoulish faces. As well as damage from the sun – which leaves many of the dolls covered in bubbles, blotches and blisters – the wind and rain have also left their mark, eroding any surface paint and leaving behind pale, skull-like faces, or gradually gnawing away the dolls’ fake hair to create jagged tufts that make them look as if they’re suffering from an agonising wasting disease. Many are also missing arms or legs – or have been given the limb of another doll that clearly doesn’t match – and even toys without heads are welcome on the island, many strung from washing lines or shoved into the gaps between branches, their exposed necks becoming a home for the exotic spiders and insects that inhabit this sprawling agricultural region. Don Julian Santana lived on the island for 50 years before his death in 2001. He was found drowned in the same area in which he believed the little girl had died.

Dressed in a pink shirt, pink sweatpants, pink socks and pink glasses, Greta Johnson isn’t the typical worm farmer. Nonetheless, the 12-year-old has found an unusual way to make extra cash. Aluminum wash bins and plastic containers filled with topsoil take up acorner of the basement in her rural Frederic, Wis., home. “This is where the magic happens,” she said. While her peers babysit or help mom and dad for some allowance money, Greta may be one of the youngest business owners around. She started her business, Greta’s Worm Farm, when she was just 10 years old, telling her parents, Sue and Dale Johnson, that she wanted to make some side money. After flipping through a book on odd jobs, they came across worm farming. Two years later, she is fully equipped with business cards, brochures and even more bins.

What’s rock and roll without someone smashing their guitar at the end of the performance? If an inventor in New Zealand has his way, future guitars will be indestructible. Oh yes, and they’ll be 3D printed to your exact specifications. “You could throw one against the wall without worrying about it breaking,” said Diegel, who will begin selling the guitars online at the end of June. Their robustness might be music to a band manager’s ears. But perhaps more notable is how Diegel makes the instruments, which are attracting interest from around the world. Diegel is an exponent of 3D printing. His zany guitar bodies are created using computer-aided design (CAD) software, output in one piece on an EOS 3D printer. This is the new world of additive manufacturing.
