Solar party

It is very interesting to see how the solar market works. Amazing how a lot of companies sell the same square product, fighting on price and NOT Innovation and consumer advantages. Renewables need design!!!!!! emotion, function and smartness!



K8 will attend the Intersolar Expo in Munich thursday the 9th to friday the 10th. We have built a final prototype of Bell, our solar lamp and mobile charger, that we will show to potential partners.
We are pretty satisfied with the result, and can’t wait to demonstrate it.
Wish us luck!;)

Makerbot in the house

At last! Our Makerbot Thing-o-matic is in the house. It is truly a piece of art! Not only do these guys revolutionize the way we will look at manufacturing and 3D printing, they add a new dimmension to object aestethics, smart packaginc and IKEA do-it-your-self philisophy. The mix of advanced technology and laser cut veneer is just fantastic. I can smell it! A high Tech object that smells like a open fire! Love it! Ok so Now the job starts putting The Makerbot together. By The way we also have The Makerbot 3D scanner. Just waiting for a mini projector to arrive from The US. This is better than X mas!!!!

Still life, frozen beauty
