• FireWire Flexible Skewers Streamlines Your Grilling Work

    FireWire Flexible Skewers Streamlines Your Grilling Work

    Skewers work pretty much the same way – you stick raw crap into the sticks, put it over a grill and wait.  There’s nothing creative about them.  Until the Firewire Flexibile Grilling Skewer came along, that is. As the name implies, it does away with the rigid quality of regular skewers.  Instead, you can twist it like a line of cable, all while it holds on to your meat securely.  That way, you can grill a shrimp kebab in a [...]

    Handysoap Gives You A Hand In The Bathroom

    Really want to turn your bathroom into a horror freak show? Hook up that scary curtain, set up that zombie candle holder and install a Handysoap on the wall. It’s soap, molded in the form of a hand that’s either about to shake your hand or pat your ass, depending on how you look at it. In the dark, it should look like one of those hands protruding out of walls the same way they used to do in 90s-era [...]

    MinusA2 Air Purifier Doubles As Wall Art

    Well-designed air purifiers aren’t that bad-looking.  In fact, the slim-panel Rabbit Air MinusA2 looks more like home theater electronics than an allergen-slaying machine.  And now, you can make it look like a piece of art hanging on your wall too with the MinusA2 Artist Design Series.

  • 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. Which sucks, because what the world really needs is a giant object slicer so we can fly to space and slice the moon like cheese. Instead, it’s a professional quality bread slicer that’s extremely practical and easy to set up. Developed by Pezy Product Innovation and We Are Perspective for Qualicasa, the machine is said to have evolved from over two years of research and design. Offering an [...]

    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. For the chairs, you simply replace an outgrown tube with [...]

    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.

    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. Unlike regular receptacles, however, it comes with two extra connectors for USB gadgets, so you don’t have to turn on a PC when all you’ve got is a USB charger in tow. With one, replenishing [...]

    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 [...]
