Spooning The Yogurt

Spooning The Yogurt

Most often yogurt cups come with extra plastic spoons, which for the moment may seem handy, but are they really? Aww come on; get your eco-green-caps on! We need to re-think, for that matter Cho Hye-seung has already done that bit, and come up with the Yogurt Spoon Package Design. The top seal of the cup comes off and can be folded into the shape of a functional spoon. Now be honest, how many of you actually lick the yogurt stuck to the seal paper…isn’t this a more legit way of doing that?

Flip Flop Mouse

Flip Flop Mouse

The Toe Mouse is especially designed for those who have upper limbs disability and cannot use their hands to move the mouse. This ergonomically designed gadget uses our natural ability to grip between the toes, for manipulating the Mouse. You need to slip it on, between the big toe and second, just as you would wear your flipflops. The sensor below the big toe acts as the left click button and the one below the second toe is the right click.

Mesmerizing Circles

Mesmerizing Circles

Truly the hands of the hourglass do turn according to their own will. Or is the will of grandfather time? It doesn’t matter! Shall I tell you why? I will! It’s because this clock has no hands! Like the rest of the watches in the family of this design group, these timekeepers have no hands at all! Designers at EleeNo have no mercy when it comes to watch display innovation, none at all! That’s why this particular watch is the most mesmerizing yet! Circle time!

Now Cube This

Now Cube This

Hello to you all fans of the epic proportions of the cube. Actually they’re quite regular, aren’t they? Yes. Well, this isn’t. This is totally squaretastic, yet it’s definitely irregular. All sorts of combinations of square stackables put together to make one tower for all! A lamp by the name of “Rubic!” I wonder if you can peg the source of the name on the donkey. I’ll give you a hint – it’s got nothing to with A Clockwork Orange.

Not QBert, It's Qbiosk!

Not QBert, It’s Qbiosk!

It DOES have a cube in it though, but I must warn you, it doesn’t play music… or does it? Instead this just one fabulously idyllic sexy lovely mid-sized table. Did I mention it’s shiny? It looks rather vintage, sort of swanky, but this little baby has a secret: the ability to be equipped with a touchscreen computer on the surface, offering video and audio output. Fifteen or 17″ screen and built-in USB reader may come standard. It’s the Qbiosk coffee bedside table!

Runner's Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

Runner’s Knees Be Gone, Opedix Tights Review

As part of my ongoing research to “Be a 10 in 2010″, I reached out to a company called Opedix who makes a line of support clothing designed for active and athletic people. Their ethos is interesting; clothes that provide proper support and alignment without sacrificing mobility. I got my hands on their Knee Support System (tights) which have been clinically proven to reduce wear and tear on the knees. As someone who has suffered from runner’s knee, I needed to try it. Hit the jump for my review.

You’re Not Mowgli

You’re Not Mowgli

And you’re lost in the jungles…deep forest where GPS doesn’t work and you are stupid enough to leave your satellite phone at home! Aren’t you glad that you packed the “Rescue Balloon Kit” in your backpack? The handy kit contains a helium gas cylinder and a long string balloon. Fill it, seal and send it skywards. When you’re missing and rescue mission is on, hopefully this red tube will get spotted, hovering above the dense foliage.

Never Get A Scratch On The LCD or Lens

Never Get A Scratch On The LCD or Lens

The agony of getting a scratch on a digital camera LCD screen is too close to home! One time I broke the screen while riding a coaster at Genting Highlands Park! And the other time, desert sand of Dubai ruined the lens. Only if my present Kodak had a 360 degree display protector as seen on this Zero Angle Digital Camera, I wouldn’t worry so much. The LCD screen is like a hard cover over the lens, that you flip 360 degrees to open up and use. When shut it’s like a sleek metallic blub, when its open…it’s a neat-o screen with all the camera navigation intact!

Bring This Book to Me

Bring This Book to Me

This project right here is about a notch. A notch in the top of a book. In every single page along the top, making it a cinch to pull out with your finger from your collection on the shelf. It’s all about getting that book all out of the shelf, all at once. Truly taking the book off the shelf is the most taxing of steps in reading a book, especially in a simple thin book like the one in the example here. But if you’re reading The Fountainhead, still, you wanna make it as easy as possible. Whip it out!

One Attachable Ladder

One Attachable Ladder

Now I’ll start saying here that I’ve never fallen off of a ladder. Or at least when I did, I wasn’t up enough rungs to make my falling a breaking and a crunching. Instead, let’s look at this fabulous new Safety Extension Ladder by designer Martin Gibson. You will be the king of the top of the ladder on this one, and you wont be falling down nohow. Nail all the hammers you want up there, with basically no chance of breaking.

How Much Clearer a Switch

How Much Clearer a Switch

I ain’t never seen. I’ve seen some switches with words on them before, but never before such an elegant one. I challenge you to show me a more elegant “ON” switch. In fact, this one is so elegant, and cocky in its elegance, it is titled ‘”On” Switch.’ Our man in Russia, Burakov Denis, sent in this design with the clear intent in mind! To show the world exactly what was going on in the world of lightswitches. But that’s not saying it’s just for that, no! All you engineers, hook this up to your weirdo machines!

Interactiv' Boxing And No Misspelling Here

Interactiv’ Boxing And No Misspelling Here

I tried boxing once and sucked at it. Yes friends, I hit about as hard as bird poop on a car window. It’s pathetic so before I return to the boxing gym, I need the Interactiv’ Boxing companion. It’s wall mounted and as the name suggests, interactive! Aim for the targets as they light up and choose from 10 training programs. They come with a pair of gloves so fistacuffs is not the name of the game here. Once I’m good and ready, I can return to the boxing gym with my head held high.
