Parents are always looking for a fun, safe environment for their children to play. The streets seem too crowded with more cars, unsafe play areas, and not enough space in general for kids to enjoy themselves. You want your child to have fun and explore childhood, but have the ability to be safe at the same time. Thankfully, there has been a new approach to childhood play with companies like Cool Kids Company, Play Modern Ltd., Modern Playhouse and CedarWorks, who are taking initiative on reinventing a child’s play structure.
From play houses, doll houses, tree houses and play structures with slides, these companies, shown at Dwell on Design 2012, have taken a modern, eco-friendly approach to the play area. They are small enough to fit into any space inside or out and can be easily taken apart and put back together. Allowing your child a safe, fun environment has never been easier.

While at Dwell on Design this year we stumbled upon this modern design featuring none other than LEGOs. Built completely with LEGOs, featuring a pool and plenty of detailing, this LEGO builder took it one step further and illuminated his house and pool with LEDs.
Instead of being phased out by an era that has put strong emphasis on video games and cell phones; Legos have remained strong and are embracing new ways to enhance the imaginations of the old and young including the architects and builders.

Like something out of Star Trek, this steam producing mechanism by Heliodisplay is accompanied by a high output video projector creating an invisible mid air screen. The projector works by focusing on the layers of micro air and moisture, resulting in a two dimensional and sometimes three dimensional image. With the appropriate software Heliodisplay can also be used as a touch screen, just like an iPad. Wow, who knew?
