The Proper Way To Listen To Music

The Proper Way To Listen To Music

Audiophile or not, the basic requirement for enjoying your music is a great speaker. If you add portability, then you have a winner on your hands. I’m talking about the Proper Audio 2, a speaker that offers rich sound and great flexibility. The truth behind portable speakers is that they are mostly used at home or at work, so instead of paying a premium for a tiny speaker, PA2 gives you useful movability, great sound and sleek looks at an amazing price.

The Power of a Deo

The Power of a Deo

There are two reasons why I love the ClickStick, a revolutionary deodorant dispenser that has been developed by two amazing people. The first is the obvious – it’s innovative, functional and high-tech; the second is that you can easily gift it to those smelly co-workers without really offending them. After all who can fault such inventiveness that brings about a unique change?

No-Brainer Kitchen Strainer

No-Brainer Kitchen Strainer

To ensure produce is free of dangerous pesticides and other residue, it is recommended they’re submerged for 20-30 minutes, but running water for that long is unrealistic and wasteful. To aid in the process, the Anton Strainer Bowl is designed to keep the contents submerged until you’re ready to strain with a simple filter and spout placed on the side rather than bottom. Better yet the placement avoids overfilling and its long spout doubles as a handle for easy maneuvering in the kitchen. Vid after the jump!

Induction Meets Conventional Stove

Induction Meets Conventional Stove

StovE is a next generation cooking device for small families. It combines the energy-efficiency of induction cooking with the power of conventional gas cooking. It features 2 cooking surfaces for each, 1 induction on top and 1 gas burner on the right, while a 3rd induction below the top keeps food warm before being served. Despite its large variety of uses and functionalities, its form, inspired by a leaf, uses less space in the kitchen thanks to its elongated, vertical shape.

Not Your Mama's Flowerpot

Not Your Mama’s Flowerpot

The Water Recycling Flowerpot makes the rest seem BASIC! Using a unique double-hallow structure, it’s able to recycle the leftover water that remains in the pot after watering. Water is stored inside the inner wall, preventing overwatering yet ensuring hydration. The water inside evaporates and condenses into droplets that fall back to the soil, creating the process of recycled irrigation. Made of crystal-clear glass, it’s fun and easy to see exactly what’s going on inside!
