S TA R I N T H E S K Y In partnership with Lufthansa, Mercedes designers have come up with a jet interior for the more discerning passenger. It combines sumptuous materials with ‘Magic Sky Technology’, which uses special panels to transform the cabin windows into displays.

Leading Paris–based provider of connected devices Wistiki has designed a new collection of four intuitive accessories. The FOUND YOU! range is designed by French designer and architect Philippe Starck and features elegant devices designed to locate belongings from a smartphone, using a free app. Each gadget is equipped with advanced tracking features and is available in four Pantone colours. The voila! seamlessly attaches to keys or sentimental items. The self-adhesive hopla! is a slim 3mm, designed to fit inside a wallet, purse or other flat surface. Completing the collection are the aha!, a medal–shaped tag, which attaches to pet collars, and the ta-da!, a soft toy for children with integrated Wistiki tracking technology. INDIEGOGO.COM

The Hummingbird is entirely designed and built in Britain and has been created with both short journeys, involving a train or tram, and longer trips, in a car or a plane, in mind. The bike also includes components from prototyping 3D printers and CAM machines used by the automotive industry. HUMMINGBIRDBIKE.COM
