Judging by what we’re seeing on the Electric Styles site, the Light Up tie — fitted with EL wire and powered by AAA batteries — is evidence that work comes to an end everyday, but not parties.
Radical times call for radical ideas. A San Francisco-based team has developed a caffeine-based topical energy spray promising to deliver a steady dose of energy for hours at a time. How does it work? Well, caffeine, as they note helpfully, permeates the skin, and they’ve employed some whizbang patent-pending technology using a simple derivative of tyrosine to increase the solubility of caffeine five-fold.
Why be comfortably numb when you can be, er, comfortably plump? (Sorry, Pink Floyd.) This is what is going to make us fat: lounging around on sumptuous snack-inspired beanbags and being reminded of junk food every waking — and dreaming — second. You’ve got to agree these pancakes look wonderfully fluffy, though.
Ravenous and on the verge of an eating rampage? You’d be pleased that Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson has designed the I Could Eat A Horse spaghetti measuring tool to help you measure out — in the shape of a horse, of course — enough spaghetti to stuff yourself silly with (four servings, to be exact).

What, can we have our cardboard boxes and sleep? Well, sure. Try this: bed linen with realistic cardboard prints on the duvet cover. This is how you can keep warm comfortably while pretending to rough it out. When Snurk introduced the Le-Clochard bed linen last year, it riled some feathers, with activists protesting about how […]
We’ve seen our fair share of kites, but this is really something. Made in collaboration with Balinese artisans, Haptic Lab’s 26” x 28” bamboo and nylon sailing ship kites are handmade shizz that actually fly in strong wind, despite their anchor-dropping appearance.
Designer-educator Forrest Jessee takes a trans-disciplinary approach to his projects, which includes the Sleep Suit, a cool textile piece laser-cut from a single sheet. It’s designed to wrap around any shape so as to allow its inhabitant to curl up and sleep anywhere he likes without feeling smothered. The basic unit of the textile is […]
Made of hand blown pyrex glass, the Meld wine glass is inspired by two forms: the glass and the human hand. The result is a merged curiosity of a drinkware which fits onto the palm ergonomically, almost like a fitted glove. We cannot approve enough.
Forget 3D printers. An innovation by Korean electronics giant Samsung, the Origami is a printer that comes as flat corrugated cardboard panels which you can fold into 3D existence as a printing machine, with the help of some strategic folds. Printer engine included separately.
Wow, this is amazing. Think of taxidermy, and you’ll probably think of wall-mounted deer heads and what-not. Well, how about sea monster tentacles for a change?

One can definitely […]
