Table of Expandability Deluxe

Table of Expandability Deluxe

It is so deluxe man, so deluxe that it expands to great proportions. Such greatness it has, in fact, that 18 pieces become one in the folding. This table is made not only to transform awesomely, it’s made to save space and be the centerpiece of the room. Fourteen of the 18 pieces are on top. The last four are the legs. At the moment it’s white, in the future, maybe a bunch of colors will be on there. Like 18 different colors, I’m thinking. Something for the ever-expanding hipster market, yes?

Oh Sucha Simple Bench

Oh Sucha Simple Bench

So you are just totally tired of all those wild and crazy pieces of furniture, ya? You’re thinking that why in the world would you make a bench like a banana when you could just as easily sit on a log? Well that’s a silly thing to say, logs get all icky when it rains out. But! What if you make a bench of metal and sealed wood? That’d be alright, right? Yes totally. Let’s take a look at this, the “Hover Bench” from Kristoffer Kjær.

Electric Folding Bike Goes Zoom Zoom

Electric Folding Bike Goes Zoom Zoom

The CYOOO is pedelec bike, a neologism for electrically assisted pedaling. Helps with difficult rides when you need that extra boost or when you’re just too lazy to bother but the other interesting tidbit is the unique folding mechanism. The saddle folds down, the head tube collapses inwards, and the handle bars rotate 90 degrees. Make no mistake this is a full 20″ bike so the folding feature makes it a bit more manageable.

A Perfume For A Man's Man

A Perfume For A Man’s Man

Hey now who doesn’t love a good smelling man? Even the brawniest, burliest men a.k.a construction workers deserve a little eau de toilette. Art Lebedev makes it a point to create a scent worthy of a man with notes of bergamot, rosemary, birch, cedar, iris, and cardamon called the Spirit Level. But even the toughest men wouldn’t be caught dead with a frou frou bottle so this one comes packaged and functions as a level.

Tea Calendar

Tea Calendar

Calendar Teabags are basically a box of teabags with a variety of teas packaged as the dates of that month. A novel idea for tea buffs and those who appreciate niche products. You can pique interest by packing a mix of tea flavors from around the world, more like a collectible edition. Have Earl Grey one day and Darjeeling Oolongs the other!

Don’t Iron Bras At Work

Don’t Iron Bras At Work

We are on a Lebedev overdrive today and rightly so. Their concepts are seemingly perfect for today’s fun day! What we have in this batch is a coffee mug re-design that puts the “energy of hot coffee to practical use.” In simple terms, the heat from your piping hot coffee-filled mug “Ironius” can be used to iron out a few creases of your shirt. Perfectly handy for those naughty ones who indulge in office romances. *Nina in her silky black bra are not included in the package!

Scoot On Into Spring

Scoot On Into Spring

From where I’m posting this post, it’s springtime. Springtime is in full effect. And you know what that means? It’s time to get scootin’. All you yuppies get out your yuppiemobiles and yuppie your way into saving the spring and summer environment! If you live where I do, up in Minnesota, you’ve only got part of a year to be able to roll those babies out on the pavement, so get em spinning! Do some jumps, flip a few backflips, weave through some cones and whatnot! Yay for the Urban Scooter!

Magically USB Delicious!

Magically USB Delicious!

It’s a magic tophat! And this magic… it is engineering science. What one hat here does is the work of a much more scientific looking USB hub! But I say to you this! How fun is that box you’ve got, that silly looking, non-fun USB hub you’ve got over there? None at all! That’s not fun at all. What were you thinking! Instead you could be over here having the time of your life using this magic hat! It’s called “Cylindrus” and it contains no rabbits.

See What Your Pet Sees

See What Your Pet Sees

Pet Vision isn’t the only device touted to record everything your pet sees but it’s small, compact, and actually looks decent compared to some of the monsters on the market. The integrated camera sends live video or intermittent photos to your computer so you can see what poochie and… what do they generically call cats, kitties?… so you can see what kitty are doing. It was originally created to help disabled people keep an eye on their pet but anyone could enjoy it. I plan on raising a cat army equipped with such devices. All shall bow down to me.

Pre Order: Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook by Brian Ling

Pre Order: Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook by Brian Ling

As a writer it never occurred to me how important and valuable a sketchbook can be to a designer. This was till I had an in depth conversation with fellow YD-er Brian Ling about his innovative Spaces for Ideas Sketchbook. Although most ideas are refined on the computer, it’s the basic sketch that gets the design flow going and as Brian says the fastest way to get an idea out of your mind and into reality is to sketch it.

No More Crumpled Ties

No More Crumpled Ties

The Stick Pin Iron Kills two birds with one stone; it keeps clips your tie in place and can be used as an impromptu iron to remove creases. In short it’s ideal for business travelers and workaholics who don’t have time to change before the party! The design uses ceramic heating plates that get powered by either USB or an electric outlet. It gets hot enough to tackle the ties, but if its more than that, you may as well invest in a travel iron.
