    Super Nova Is An Illuminating Hotdog Balloon, Also Huggable

    Ready to leave your supervillain ways? Do it in style.

  • Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Bed Cools Your Back During Sleep

    Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Bed Cools Your Back During Sleep

    The Evening Breeze Canopi is great for low-powered bedroom air conditioning, but the actual rig is seriously pricey. If you’re looking for something a little more within budget, the Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Bed should keep you cool during sleep, while offering more attractive overall costs. Used for eight hours a day, it claims to add a mere 24 cents to your monthly utility expenses. Ridiculous? Not really, since I doubt it’s really an air-conditioner anyway. From what I can tell, it [...]

    Hotelslicer Cuts The Perfect Slice Of Bread With One Motion

    Contrary to what the name implies, the Qualicasa Hotelslicer doesn’t slice hotels.

    HECMEC’s Eco-Furniture Uses Modular Paper Tubes

    How do you make children’s furniture eco-friendly?

Endowed with a modular design, the furniture can quickly be reconfigured for different heights by simply swapping out the tubes that make up the frame.

    Minjjoo Children’s Door Adds A Door Within A Door

    Children and leprechauns have been having a hard time opening doors since I can remember. Quite simply, they’re too short to comfortably reach the handle and turn it to open. Finally, someone came up with a solution in the form of the Minjjoo Children’s Door. Designed by German firm Jjoo and manufactured by Holitsch, it’s basically a small door within a regular door, complete with its own lock and handle. That way, your height-challenged inhabitants, from children 1.5 years onwards, [...]

    Bene Coffice Combines Creature Comforts With Professional Function

    Office chairs with an integrated armchair desk make perfect sense. Especially when you’re looking to equip a room with temporary workspaces.

    Amityville Horror House For Sale: 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths And… Ghosts

    A house where a family was brutally murdered probably isn’t high on most people’s list of ideal homes. Unless you’re a horror buff, a serial killer or somewhere in the vicinity of both. In case you are, start counting your pennies, because the real Amityville Horror House is now for sale. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the subject of both a 1977 book (The Amityville Horror) and a subsequent movie series that came out between 1979 and [...]

    You thought it was vaporware. We did too. But the FastMac U-Socket, a combination AC and USB outlet, just went up for pre-order. If you need a refresher, it’s basically a wall-mounted power point with two three-prong AC slots for plugging in your home electronics.

    Flat Light Puts A Functioning Desk Lamp On Your Wall

    A cool desk lamp might add a little style and class to your mess of a work area, but lets face it, it still takes up already scarce space on that prime piece of desk top property. Not the Flat Light, though, which attempts to impart all the same decorative and illuminating functions, without taking up room in your desk. Created by Finn Maggee, it’s part visual gag and part functional equipment. Instead of an actual lamp, it’s actually just [...]

    Mini-Donut Factory Cranks Out Six Donuts A Minute

    Sweet, fattening and impossible to resist, donuts are downright evil. Mini-donuts, on the other hand, are only partially as evil, so we decree that they’re actually good for you.

Why make your own donuts? So you can bake yourself a fresh batch anytime you feel like it. [...]
