This is great: a glass that suspends our disbelief of gravity. Made from hand-blown glass, the Revolution Wine and Water Glass combines two glasses into one. Depending on which side you flip it, its contents appear to float at different levels as you fill the glass from either end. Either way, it will confound your […]
Contemporary Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija came up with this design for the best beach towel we’ve even seen. The words on the 70”x60” cotton towel should warn people to bugger off while you bask in the sun all right. Winning.
You know us, we have a certain fondness for kitschy accessories that hint at, well, a spot of harmless murder. Explains why we dig this double-digit butcher knife ring by Brazilian jewelry designer Raul Souza so much.
This is by far the lightest keyboard we’ve ever encountered. The Laser Virtual Keyboard is a functional full-size QWERTY keyboard that can be projected onto any flat surface via a modestly small device. It can also be used with any bluetooth-enabled device (no USB connections there, duh), such as tablets and smartphones. Versatile.
Artist Dylan Kendall has a colorful past which includes gatecrashing classes at Parsons School of Design as a teenager, being a fugitive from the Kenyan law for firing her houseboy and spending a decade in public service to lead arts-based initiatives for the homeless and foster care youth. She also makes these whimsical ceramic tableware […]
Colorado-based furniture designer David Rasmussen recently turned his attention to making these really cool martini glasses that sport black walnut wood cups instead of the usual glass ones. It’s not just pretty but functional: using wood properly insulates the drink by keeping it cool for a longer time compared to glass. The stem gets a […]
Could this be the world’s most minimalistic sex toy ever? Hello Touch, the silicone fingerpad vibrators “optimized for both internal and external stimulation of all and any erogenous zones”, are the brainchild of San Francisco-based manufacturer Jimmyjane. It comes with a wristband dock and has decent battery life too, lasting up to 6 hours on […]
A series of chairs inspired by the forms of aquatic life created by designer Sam T. Smith. Made with plywood and canvas and held together with wing nuts, the simple aesthetic shows design where form inspires function, rather than follows it.
What trickery is this? Oh, Hamilton Beach’s breakfast sandwich maker for lazy people to waltz through homemade brekkie, that’s what. It comes with a bottom layer to toast the bottom half including your bread, while an egg layer cooks an egg right inside your sandwich. The top plate toasts the bread on top and holds […]
I had the Thunderbirds, He Man, Marvel characters. Jeeze, I think I even had a Ken. Did you ever wish that you ever had a model of yourself? Well, if you did, now it’s possible thanks to the state of the art tech that Twinkind have developed. The 3D scanning and printing results in amazingly […]
This poor guy was trying out the Oculus Rift virtual reality roller coaster ride, which is incredibly realistic. Jacob, the victim, is terrified of rollercoasters, so his friends did what any good friends would do; they strapped him into the simulation. It does make for quite an hilarious video, but it also demonstrates how realistic […]
The 1967 debut of The Doors changed much more than the popular music scene. The genre-defying band and its music helped transform youth lifestyle and usher in the rebellious counterculture that came to define the late ’60s.
Yes, scifi video game geeks, your wish has come true. Now you can fix these decals — reminiscent of the thousands of doors you’ve passed in Half Life, BioShock and the such — on the doors or walls in your home to make it look like you’re really living in your second life. Comes in […]
Internet behold! Your favourite animals – sloths, sharks, cats, unicorns – all have knitting patterns for toys that you know you need (yes, you can sleep with a toy sloth at 30). Brought to you by the makers of the legendary Children’s Birthday Cake Book with the train on the cover, the book’s poems and […]
Oh, what would we give to never actually have to make our bed ever again? San Francisco-based Marshall Haas and Jon Wheatley have thought of a solution to put an end to these pesky bunched up sheets that’s so brain-numbingly easy, we wonder why no one’s ever thought of it before. The idea is to […]
