Simply squeeze the packet into the pouch, and you'll be ready to dip. Continue reading for more creative design winners from the 2017 A' Design Award & Competition.
A small town in Newfoundland has become a popular tourist attraction after a massive 150-foot iceberg appeared off its coast. That's right, the Southern Shore highway near the town of Ferryland was blocked over the Easter weekend as people rushed to see and photograph the massive iceberg. "It's not moving out of there unless this winds stay up for another while, because [the iceberg's] right in on the shallow ground," said resident Don Costello.

Let's face it, nobody likes noisy neighbors, especially ones who reside directly above you. Zhao from China decided to seek revenge by purchasing a "building shaker" gadget online. Believe it or not, he actually tried to politely speak with the family first, but to no avail. The $58 device produces strong vibrations, similar to someone drilling into the ground, with the higher-end models offering timers and smartphone compatibility. After leaving for a weekend and leaving the "Building Shaker" device turned on, the two parties mutually agreed to keep things quiet during certain hours of the day.

London-based company CLR CFF has created the world's first colorless coffee, and it's not just an optical illusion. This drink is brewed with high quality Arabica coffee beans and pure water, while promising a 'fresh, aromatic taste and flavor' that doesn't need sugar or milk. The team spent three months experimenting with different brewing methods before arriving at the final recipe, one that has even more caffeine than a shot of espresso.

Using perfectly good supplies to handcraft a sculpture is tough enough for non-artists, but Arturas from Lithunia takes it to the next level. The Steampunk-inspired chameleon you see above was crafted entirely from junkyard scraps and whatever other trash Arturas was able to find. Not just good for decoration, some of them double as jewelry boxes, coin banks, and more. Continue reading to see them all. Click here for a few bonus images.
First, there was the Pontiac Deluxe Six Ghost Car 1939, which had a transparent plexiglass shell, and now, this is what a see-through Lamborghini Countach would look like. Designed by JonSibal, this transparent supercar would feature a reinforced acrylic shell, with many of its plastic parts remaining visible beneath the body panels, including its beefy V12 engine.

This may not be an actual human colony on Mars, but it's probably as close as most will get to one. Freedomes partnered with SunCity Camp to create a dome tent camp experience in Wadi Rum, Jordan, or where "The Martian" was filmed. The camp consists of approximately twenty geodesic domes and will cost between $159 to $318 a night, depending on how many luxuries you need.

Houston's Market Square Towers has a unique feature not found in other hotels, a pool that sits 500 feet up in the air, complete with a transparent 8-inch thick plexiglass bottom. Unfortunately (or fortunately), it's only accessible to residents, or those that pay at least $1,800 per month for a 564-square-foot studio, all the way up to $18,715 for a 3,000-square-foot penthouse.

Netherlands-based industrial designer Daniel de Bruin takes thrill rides to the next level with "Neurotransmitter 3000". It's controlled with biometric data with sensors placed directly on the person, which includes heart rate, body temperature, orientation, gravity and muscle tension. "Heart rate determines the speed of the large rotation and the muscle tension sensor can interfere with that speed by slowing it down. Also, the rider is provided with a hand brake system on the right arm to stop the small rotation from spinning. This creates an active feedback," said the designer.

Russian architect Vasily Klyukin has designed a cobra-shaped skyscraper that could potentially be constructed in the Middle East or Asia. These elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes may not be the most lovable animal, or at least in many Western cultures, but in China, these animals are the custodians of temples, treasure, esoteric knowledge and all lunar gods.
