Cube Speaker(s)

Cube Speaker(s)

This sinister looking black cube may look like pandora’s box but it’s really just a set of wireless speakers that can be positioned anywhere for optimal surround sound. Altogether there are 5 speakers and 1 woofer. They’re held together in cube form by the power of Voltron magnetism. The woofer’s top is a volume controller and itself is the main base unit that charges the other speakers.

One Leg, But Still Can Walk With Pride

One Leg, But Still Can Walk With Pride

I really admired Princess Diana’s grit when it came to humane issues like landmines and landmine victims. Did you know that landmines injure 15,000 to 20,000 people every single year? A majority of them have been civilians and children, who have died due to the sheer impact. Those who survive have to deal with a life no less painful than death, due to limb amputations. Efforts like these temporary prosthetic limbs offer very quick support to injured people and help them to not give up on themselves.

Hush-a-by-baby Mommy's Gonna Con You

Hush-a-by-baby Mommy’s Gonna Con You

I’m sorry! I couldn’t help you decoding the cries of your baby, and neither did LT get you the right formula bottle. To make amends I bring to you this Music Pillow that features two speakers and an MP3 player. When you’re busy doing chores around the house and the baby is trying to get some sleep, con him with your pre-recorded soothing voice that plays over the speakers. As he lies in his cot, let him believe that mommy or daddy is close at hand.

Sit on It, Serralunga!

Sit on It, Serralunga!

Well, what’ve we got here? A versatile little seat contraption eh? Yeah, yeah, that’s what it is. Wait! It’s also a planter! Wait! It’s also a side-table, as they call them. This is exactly the octohedron I’ve been searching for all my furniture-seeking life. Isn’t a strange corner we turn around when at first we seek out a seat for our very own?

Touchy Much? HP Touchsmart PC Review

Touchy Much? HP Touchsmart PC Review

Touchscreen interfaces; the delicate balance between technology and cost are slowly falling in unison and HP aims to be in the vanguard. The Touchsmart PCs have always tried to epitomize that future but the 1st gen machines weren’t exactly winners. We took the 2nd gen machines for a test drive and spoke to Randall Martin – HP’s Worldwide Director of Design for Commercial and Consumer Desktop PCs about the present and future of the Touchsmart PC line.

Apple Macmini Needs A Radio Friend

Apple Macmini Needs A Radio Friend

Apple freaks know pretty well that Jobs doesn’t indulge in concepts. Which is why any nugget that comes our way, we lap it up like starving puppies. Who wouldn’t love having this stackable Radio and Speaker System for Macmini on their table? Specs like Internet radio with access to about 10,000 stations worldwide, 2 front and 3 rear extra USBs and multi card reader, makes it a delectable item. Superb sound quality and sexy design are a given!

No Walls, Only Partitions

No Walls, Only Partitions

Without compromising on privacy, the 4sides4home is an amazing interior option for those who have small apartments and even smaller families. The concept utilizes the given floor space optimally by doing away with the walls and incorporating partitions instead. Imagine a huge + (plus sign) on the floorplan where each wing is a specific room. What you design or expect from the modular room is up to you. For instance the four wings could each be a living room, a bedroom, a study and a dining room.

Grow A Bamboo To Get Better Sound

Grow A Bamboo To Get Better Sound

If you get yourself the Forsta Speakers then trust me, this is exactly what you will be doing. Stop splitting your sides; I’m serious about this concept! The idea is to install a speaker inside the bamboo hollow (on the vertical top) as the stem serves as a sound box; hence taller the bamboo grows, the richer the sound gets. Ok summary-time: you nurture a bamboo, which has a speaker inside it and you hook it to your TV/Sound System. Looks aesthetic, but will this concept be functional? Come on guys…you tell me! Leave me your comments.

Stack Books in your Grandfather

Stack Books in your Grandfather

He wont mind. Often in history, mashing two things together, furniture pieces, silverware, counties, anime characters, has been the good idea. No exception here. My grandmother has a grandfather clock that’s worked since the 1950′s – but not for carrying books n’ stuff. This new design, the P-Bookshelf, still has the clock, has new shelves, looks modern and could have the same method of distribution if it wanted…

I’m Preggies, I Need New Shoes!

I’m Preggies, I Need New Shoes!

Clothes don’t fit, I feel hungry all the while and don’t even get me started about my excess weight or I’ll shoot you. You have to humor my hormonal moodswings; I’m pregnant after all! In this condition you can expect me to go ballistic about every single fart that squeeze out or simply go drooling over the Piel shoes. They may not be your average style-statement, but what the heck they are comfy for my feet and the organic pattern stretches across to fit so perfectly. Ahh…soft cushy comfort! Don’t laugh at me or else you’ll find a Piel planted firmly in your bum!

Even Birds Are Going Green

Even Birds Are Going Green

This is a really simple concept but one I want like yesterday. The Solar Birdhouse is exactly what it says. The roof has a solar panel that charges a small battery. At sunset a sensor turns on the illuminated perch, creating a whimsical glow in your garden and hopefully makes it easier for your birdies to get home. The entire thing is made out of gorgeous meranti wood and measures 7.1 x 3.5 x 3.5 inches.
