Ceramic Speakers, Careful Now

Ceramic Speakers, Careful Now

Our favorite teapot maker Joey Roth is at it again. His Ceramic Speakers made the internet rounds months ago but I had to point out how there’s still nothing like it on the market and if he is to be believed – audiophiles and design snobs alike will both be appeased.

Food Dicer, Lemon Slicer, Robot Penguins = WIN

Food Dicer, Lemon Slicer, Robot Penguins = WIN

Let me channel my best Shamwow Guy impression and convince you these items are worth their salt. The Easy Food Dicer, Lemon Slicer and Robot Penguins have a tiny bit of Alessi in them but there’s something modernly sophisticated to them too.

This piece (cute piggy!) was created for the annual contest of design applied to craft and takes place in Castilla-La Mancha (Spain), in order to provide a platform that encourages creativity and talent as well as a meeting place between artisans and professionals.

Just What I Need For My iPhone

Just What I Need For My iPhone

For some odd reason, Apple has decided to keep the charging cord for the iPhone pretty short. When you compare it to the Nokia or Motorola chargers, the wire is a teeny-tiny tad! Not that long wires are a help, but either ways, you never are going to be happy with wire lengths! The solution lies in cool accessories like this MI-O Cell Phone Cradle. Keep the phone close enough to the socket and wrap the charger wire, neatly around the expandable wings! Happy Happy Wires!

Slurp Up Buddy

Slurp Up Buddy

We tend to associate polluted water problems with under-developed countries and rarely give a thought to how we would cope with a situation when our fully developed city comes under the siege of Mother Nature’s fury! At times like this, contraptions like the Happy Basin for instant purified drinking water can come as a relief. The basin includes nano ceramic filters embedded in the holes at the bottom of the cup that help in the filtration of polluted water. You simply need to push the basin into the water body and let surface tension buoyancy take its course.

Keeping An Eye On The Milk For You

Keeping An Eye On The Milk For You

If you have a full house, there are less chances of anything staying for long in the fridge. Meaning it will get consumed sooner or later. But if you’re on your own or are the sorts who don’t raid the fridge often, you can very well expect some of the contents to expire before consumed fully. Fresholling here is a handy gadget that you attach to your milk carton or opened bottle of juices, and set the expiry date on them. Like an alarm clock, it ticks off at the end of the set date, ensuring you don’t consume spoiled goodies.

Up The Ladder Down The Chord

Up The Ladder Down The Chord

When you’re working on a house or a project that involves ladders, often you’re also working with tools that require you run a chord up there too. Lots of power tools are wireless now, meaning they’ve got battery packs, but there’s still a lot of chords in the world. What do you do to make your time up there with that a lot easier? You clip this lovely baby on up on your belt loop and roll a little bit simpler!

How Many Boxes Does A Bathroom Make?

How Many Boxes Does A Bathroom Make?

Plenty if you want the Roca Box. Segmented sanitary spaces, all come together like the accordion; compact in the box! For a good measure, a concept known as the “Thermal Bomb” has been thrown in. Thermal Bomb essentially uses humid air to heat the water and is supposedly energy efficient as well. Would you like to bathe in the box, or do you need conventional spacious grandeur?

Stump Furniture Made From Reclaimed Wood

Stump Furniture Made From Reclaimed Wood

The Stump series of furniture are all made of reclaimed wood that might otherwise be tossed out. The object was to create a sustainable business and create designs that were engaging while hiding their recycled nature. The price point is excellent too at just under $200 for most pieces. Normal carpentry facilities would cost too much to mass produce the series. Instead, work programs for rehabs and disabled people made production possible while providing employment for a large group of marginalized people. I love it!

birds Birds BIRDS!

birds Birds BIRDS!

Seoul metro stations still use old school ad boards but designer Changhee Kang thinks his AD projection system called Motion Graphic might keep commuters more entertained. The large screens show of all things – birds. Not pretty blue jays or cute parakeets but black birds. The sight of a swarm of black birds flying by as a train enters the station sure will wake sleepy commuters but I can’t help and think of the scene from Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Three Dee Power Socket

Three Dee Power Socket

One plug is not enough. In the USA, two is not enough. Everywhere in the world, basically, more power plugs are needed. So what did ArtLeb do? They built it into the plug itself, rather than relying on the ever-present power strip. And it’s got blue on it! And it uses the Art Lebedev logo on it! I’m pretty excited by it. I’m gonna need it in three-prong, please.

 Entire Vanity In A Strip

Entire Vanity In A Strip

On a recent trip out of town, I crammed into my suitcase this vanity bag containing soap, facewash, lotions, perfume, gels etc. In short a mini replica of my personal hygiene collection. Then again Murphy’s Law kicked in and the bottles of lotion and shampoo just burst open, soiling all my clothes! Wish I could have carried this “Wash One” pills instead. Tablets of hair, face, body wash and even toothpaste! Brilliant!
