UK design team Dunne and Raby (Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby) designed this “Teddy Bear bloodbag”. The idea behind it is to serve as a comfort for children in the hospital. Why do kids get the coolest things? I want a horse shaped bloodbag … not that I really want a bloodbag.
It is worth going to Dunne and Raby’s site, dunneandraby.co.uk, to check out their other work which includes pieces like the one above as well as various texts and lectures.
According to their bios, Dunne and Raby “use design as a medium to stimulate discussion…about the social, cultural and ethical implications of existing and emerging technologies.”
