My Little Lockie USBee!

My Little Lockie USBee!

What’s the consensus, do you use external harddrives to keep your information safe, or do you trust the USB? Or GASP do you keep your important information on your computer itself?! This is blasphemy. This is madness! Your stuff can be totally accessed there! Don’t you know about the dreaded hacker gang Gonna Getchas? They’re harsh. Well! Designer Yun Hwan Sung has a handle for you. It’s called “Bill’s USB.”

Just What Is Your Weight

Just What Is Your Weight

Ah the woes of being overweight, ask me about it! You need constant reminders to “watch it” and ensure that you stick to your regime. Rug with Scale is one such aid and should ideally be placed in front of your bathroom door so that every time you come out of the loo, you feel happy! The scale typically shows your previous weight, present weight, and goal weight. But the rug underneath can be removed and switched for cleaning etc.

Everchanging Wallnado

Everchanging Wallnado

That’s another name for this product that I just made up! I mean the name, that is, this concept was designed by the incomparable Amirko, and it’s real name is “Change It!” Ohh scoop it! It’s one big wall of turn-triangles. Each of these triangles has different colors on them – white – black – and a slightly unique rainbow shade. As you can see in the first picture here, when the color is on full blast, it makes a mural all it’s own.

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

I know this sounds very funny but what can I say… the aQuatica Faucet has been inspired by sea creatures. Honestly, it does resemble a mini sculpture when not in use and expands elaborately to become this work-of-art faucet. A dramatic departure from the drab ones we see off the shelf, but I promise you…the cleaning lady’s not gonna like cleaning this!
