Wine? Wine Knot!

Wine? Wine Knot!

How much wine do you drink a year? How about a month? A day? Wow you drink a lot. And how do you display that wine out in the open? You don’t just stand it there next to your toaster do you? For shame! You’ve got fabulous taste in wine, you aught to be twisting it up nice in a knot, a “Wine Knot.” Everyone will ohh and ahh! at you when they stick their eyes upon this beautiful wood and metal masterpiece. This piece of wildness is made of two intersecting bent pieces of plywood held up by a simple metal rack. Rack em up!

Bumping Action Deleted

Bumping Action Deleted

My memory for movies is trash but I’m sure there must have been many which featured a scene where the hero and heroine accidentally bump into each other, around a corner…papers fly outta their hand, they look into each other’s eyes and fall hopelessly in love. Revise this scene with the Corner’s Communication Warning Sign and it’s ought to be a killjoy. But for practical purposes, down long office corridors, restaurants and hospitals, this corner sign could save a lot of spills.

Never Singe Another Garment

Never Singe Another Garment

As a new bride, it was expected from me to know how to manage all the household chores. The spoilt brat that I was, I didn’t even know how to iron clothes. Yes, the expected happened I burned many of my husband’s shirts, mainly because a telephone call or a whistling pressure cooker would grab my attention. I’d leave the iron right on the garment and come back to a gaping burnt hole! The Roly Poly Iron would have saved me a lot of clothes thanks to a built-in weight mechanism.

Pendolo for Listening to Pendulum

Pendolo for Listening to Pendulum

Have you heard of the “band” Pendulum? They’re totally insane. You could listen to them on these. These are super speakers. Super speakers indeed. Just look at them! It’s a 2 way loudspeaker system inspired by the sounds they’re about to play. The woofer is shaped to a sphere, while the acoustic base is a horn shape. One located above the other with the tweeter on top. The sound shall flow naturally!

Do You Have The Right Sexy Tools?

Do You Have The Right Sexy Tools?

I didn’t know tools had to be so sexy (think Mike Delfino), ah naughty minds! I’m talking about this REPÄIRE TOOLSET; handy dandy and smart! All the necessary tools to help you become the puurrfect handyman, so much so that you can actually show this set off! It gets integrated into the bookshelf and within arm’s reach. What I really dig is the color combos and the way a central blue (or red) ring is the hub of all equipments.

Swinging The Other Way

Swinging The Other Way

Most of the time you’re nudging your co-bench partner to give you more seat space. So essentially sitting on benches really sucks. Generally they’re hard slabs of wood or concrete and do nothing much for your posterior or fun! This is the reason why we need more of the Swing Together Bench; I don’t need to say much…just have a look at the video and you’ll get the full picture. Google Offices can do with this swing!

Light Tree

Light Tree

The title of this post is pretty boring but it describes exactly what this concept is; a Light Tree. The artificial tree is covered in solar cells that power ultra-bright LEDs at the base. The light diffuses thru water which fills the entire cavity of the tree for that “glowy” look. The upper extremities hold seeds to REAL PLANTS, like OMG! I was getting worried about the total artificiality of this concept but at least you’ve got some green shrubbery in there.

Bike to the Izzy

Bike to the Izzy

Plastic for the shizzy. This bike right here is made of plastic, and it’s made for the city. Immediately I’ve got to tell you my favorite part – the frame is recycleable. That means that when your frame gets a bit banged up but your wheels are still ready to go, you’ve got only to turn it in to the store for a new one! Inexpensive, lovely greenery.

Disco Lights For USB

Disco Lights For USB

Getting back to his roots, Designer Mac Funamizu takes inspiration from the Japanese Soma-Toh or a revolving lantern for this gimmicky Funny USB Memory Stick! Involved here is a transparent USB memory stick with alluring lights to represent facts. Example: no lights = empty stick; pink light = images stored; blue = documents & green = movies. And when the lights fill up the tube, it simply means memory is full. A delightful design, which is a tangent from the Swarosvki and gilded ones presently in the market.

Solar Power Spikes for Plants

Solar Power Spikes for Plants

Literally listed as a “solar powered gardener wannabee helper.” It is a guide for any gardener on a sort of small garden (or potentially giant garden) project that needs a little bit more than eyeballing. It’s a set of spikes you jab into the ground, each of them powered by the sun, each of them made to relay information to you about the moisture and nutrient levels of the soil, as well as sun exposure and temperatures the plants are receiving.

Enemies of Garden

Enemies of Garden

Friends at last! For what greater enemy does a vase have than a baseball? Maybe a cat. But that’s not important right now, because this is the “VaseBall!” In fact it has little to do with baseball at all, and a lot more to do with water and magnets. As you’re soon to see, the base of this vase and the top of the base of the vase each have magnets. When the water in the vase is too low, the lightness and the opposites in the poles make the ball lift!
