Steal This Chair Post

Steal This Chair Post

I read a book one time. It was called “Steal This Book.” It was a book by the guy named Abbie Hoffman, and the book was all about surviving as a Yippie in the late 60′s and 70′s. Yippies, as he wrote about them, lived off basically all recycled materials. Especially furniture. Lots of drugs too, but that’s beside the point. Check this post out, it’s all about making good use of materials on furniture in particular.

Drugs Extend Your Golden Hour

Drugs Extend Your Golden Hour

I can see any number of ways that the title of this post might be miss-read, so I’ll set you straight right away. This IS about a drug. It IS about the Golden Hour, which might not be what you think it is: what it actually IS is the time after a serious accident before you’re no longer able to fix whatever you broke. This doesn’t always happen, but in the case where you DO have that timeline, this drug “Tamiasyn” and device “UniTam” extend that hour as long as possible.

Egg Shower

Egg Shower

The proteins in an egg can do wonders for your skin, but how about taking a shower in one? I’m talking about the egg-shaped shaped Cocoon Shower Stall that literally cocoons you once you shut all the glass slides. The usual spa features seen in such kinda stalls are included, but to spell them out: shower, bathtub, hydro massage (Jacuzzi) & mood lighting are there. The rain-showerhead is plum in the center of the ceiling, but I’d much rather use this for the hydra therapies!

Button Up A Watch This Winter

Button Up A Watch This Winter

Its winter and just when your hands get warm and cozy in your gloves; you get this itch to see the time. In a normal situation you would just ask someone else for the time and ignore the watch on your wrist (under the gloves). But I’m not here to relate a normal situation! Allow me to introduce you to the idea of a Button watch. A teeny-tiny clip-on that clips to your jacket or bag and tells you the time on a need-to-know-basis. Click the face once and it displays the time and date on the glass face for a few seconds.

What’s Up On The Ceiling?

What’s Up On The Ceiling?

A Fan! On one hand we have futuristic Dyson-esque Bladeless Fans seeking our attention and on the other we have a retro beauty vying for love. The Loft Wing kinda reminds me of the traditional fans or Punkahs that were attached to strings and pulled by diligent Punkahwalas in ancient Indian kingdoms. This one of course is modern enough to include a motor that performs the swinging motion.

That’s where you’ve got to add something usually not sitting by the pot: pencils. Pens, markers, even crayons if you like.

One billion events, millions of lighting experts. That’s what happens. When you’ve got an event that needs lighting, you see a specialist.

This here is the Helios 700W! And basically anyone can use it.

Prison Diary Online

Prison Diary Online

For a moment the news of Brit prisoners on home leave being handed out Viagra made me crack up, but once I understood the psychology behind it, I was more compassionate. It’s very vital to keep prisoners in the “right frame of mind” and creative writing can be a good outlet. The P:log is a secured random blogging system for prisoners that keeps the author anonymous, but family members and mentors are allowed to identify and communicate with the author.

Switch Socket

Switch Socket

Neat name for a Switch + Socket system – One.One.Two! The idea behind this design is to give you a sleek multi-purpose socket so that you can use it to hook up the many devices you own, without going on socket-installation overdrive. The combo of course is of switch & socket, but what’s different is that it doesn’t use up-down motion to function; it uses a push up-down mechanism instead.
