Can you imagine eating cereal out of this adorable cat bowl? Or serving hot soup in a cute little itty-bitty whale or hedgehog? Meals will never be the same again when you’re dining with these sleepy critters.
How brilliant! Two designers have found a way to recycle discarded cans from the streets of Brazil’s São Paulo as swanky furniture. A mobile furnace, powered by waste vegetable oil, melts down the cans; while the melted aluminum is then poured into molds and casted as new furniture anywhere on the spot. In a trial […]

Okay, this is the only bed we all want now: the Zip Bed comes with a zipper that you can easily pull all around the sides to hide these messy bedsheets beneath. Even better, its minimalist design makes it quite the sleek stunner. Nobody ever needs to know we’re slobs.
Sean Follmer and Daniel Leithinger, both PhD students at MIT, have created a device that converts digital content into a tangible 3D format. InFORM is designed to be a physical means of displaying imagery, rather than the illusionistic three-dimensionality of a standard hologram. According to its designers, inFORM is ideal for controlling media, illustrating bar […]
Say what you want about how this new bathroom fixture will make us even more lazy, but the idea of a shower and bath combined sounds like heaven! Designed by Sieger Design, with interior design Scien + Pier, the Horizontal Shower actually includes six different shower heads that can be programmed to give a range of water temps, intensity and quantity, plus other cool features to provide ‘balancing, energizing, or de-stressing effects’.
Take a look at your future, sailors. This futuristic jet capsule has been created by Pierpaolo Lazzarini and is designed to fit up to four people at a time. Constructed with fiberglass and stainless steel, the concept behind this capsule was ‘to have a boat small enough to take people out for drinks and dinner […]
It may seem like a simple toy, but this is actually a product of great engineering. Swiss-born watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz, along with his son Henri-Louis, and Jean Frédéric Leschot, designed this robot in the late 1770s and called it The Writer. Side note: Writerminator 3000 would have sounded much cooler, but The Writer isn’t too […]
Yes, a Kiev-based creative agency has cheekily developed these kettlebells shaped like boobs. There’s some sort of correlation between 1. weights and boobs (mmm, boob lifts?), and 2. guys and boobs (guys, er, like boobs). Therefore, guys like lifting boobs. Right? Right.
Soup sure has come a long way since its beginnings (and its beginnings can be read about right here) but even in the 21st Century soup companies are looking for ways to spice up their original recipes. And Campbell’s has outdone itself once again with their lineup of “pub inspired” soup varieties. We’re talking all the […]
You’ve got to love humanity for always pushing the envelope on creativity. A team of design students from Brazil recently swept the top awards at a UNESCO-supported aviation competition for their innovative concept of introducing buoyancy to luggage at airports — in other words, floating all that baggage in the air.
For all you penny-pinchers out there, now you can avoid paying for extra luggage on airplanes with this wearable suitcase. Sure, it’s not the most fashionable suitcase we’ve seen, but its 14 spacious pockets can hold a few extra pounds of supplies. Jacktogo is even wind and water resistant, and its lightweight design will ensure […]
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.
