5 amazing gadgets made from concrete

Dzmitry Samal watch

Billed as the first ever watch to boast a concrete face (and who are we to argue?) this Swiss-made timepiece comes in eight different styles and costs €1,240 (around £1,060). If you don’t trust concrete as a hardy enough material for day-to-day wrist-wearing, bear in mind that it the watch frame is made from stainless steel and polished concrete is used only as a housing.

Espresso Solo coffee machine

Sadly a concept and not something you can pick up at your local Comet, this is by far the coolest coffee machine we’ve ever laid eyes on. It makes only espresso, so lovers of Starbucks-style foamy milkshakes need not apply. Which makes it even cooler, we guess. Another design from the clearly concrete-crazy Shmuel Linski.


Luna iPhone 5 skin

This protective skin for the iPhone 5 is a little more imaginative than the average piece of press-on plastic. Every Luna – named for its resemblance to the surface of the Moon – has its own individual pattern of crater-like bubbles that will ensure your phone is a beautiful, unique snowflake. With a concrete cover on the back.
