• Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet Adds A TV To Your Beer Tap

    Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet Adds A TV To Your Beer Tap

    A beer keg with a flat screen TV right next to the tap is a bad idea in so many ways.  Still, I doubt that’s going to stop people from getting the Diamond Plate Kegerator Cabinet.  So, I’ll just pipe off my warnings and hope someone heeds them before it’s too late. See that brand-spanking new HDTV?  That’s about to get doused in beer and ice.  Mark my words.  Every drunk worth the alcohol content in his brew have spilled [...]

    S T R E T C H Turns Giant Rubber Band Into A Shelving Solution

    Rubber bands for shelves?  That sounds silly, but the S T R E T C H Shelf (yep, it’s spelled with all those irritating spaces) shows how it can be done, and the results are particularly attractive. The modular shelving solution uses one large rubber band and an array of pegs that you can arrange whichever way you fancy.  Simply position those pegs on your wall, wring the rubber band around them and you’ve got yourself a most awesome-looking wall [...]

    Dunk Mug Keeps Your Coffee And Biscuits All In One Place

    Like to have biscuits with your coffee?  Have less dishes to clean up later with the Dunk Mug, an unusual-looking mug with a place for cookies and biscuits on the side. Because of the modified design, the Dunk Mug is able to handle less coffee than usual, which dampens its thrill a bit.  It’s not the perfect mug, yet, but you have to admit – not having to carry biscuits on your other hand is a heck of a convenience.  [...]

    Got attitude?  Sit like you mean it with the Attitude Chair, which lets you lean back like the cockiest douchebag in town.

  • NES Bartop Arcade Cabinet Makes You Rethink What A Kitchen Computer Is Supposed To Do

    NES Bartop Arcade Cabinet Makes You Rethink What A Kitchen Computer Is Supposed To Do

    It’s nice to get an arcade cabinet for your game room. Scoring one with a beer tap on the side (see Arkeg) is even better. Having it in your kitchen counter right next to the fridge where all the beer hides, however, is just sublime. This homemade counter-top Nintendo arcade cabinet just made me drool with envy, not to mention want to spend more time in the kitchen than I normally do. The machine’s guts consist of an old spare [...]

  • Cloud Telecomputers’ Glass Platform Puts Android On Your Desk Phone

    Cloud Telecomputers’ Glass Platform Puts Android On Your Desk Phone

    How do you revive a dying technology?  Put in a low-powered processor, add a touchscreen and install Android in it.  At least, that’s what Cloud Telecomputers is doing with their Glass Platform, an Android-powered desk phone. With large businesses invested in massive landline infrastructures, I doubt it’s really going away soon.  So why not throw in a functional computer to spice it up a bit?  Instead of just making and receiving calls, the Glass Platform lets you read your Outlook [...]

    Is it that time of the year again?

    ArKeg Arcade System Puts Both Games And Beer On Tap

    Playing games is fun. Getting drunk is just as entertaining. Playing games while getting drunk, however, makes all the lonely nights go away… forever. Just ask anyone who’s bought the Arkeg, an arcade-style game machine with a tap that pumps free-flowing beer for a jolly, old time. Not a complex machine by any means, the Arkeg houses a five gallon keg with a dispensing system and a functional game-ready PC. Stored inside the cabinet of the arcade box, the keg [...]

  • CRISTAL Puts A Visual Universal Remote Control On Your Coffee Table

    CRISTAL Puts A Visual Universal Remote Control On Your Coffee Table

    While designing coffee tables has, generally, been the realm of artistic types, a new contraption might totally change its function in future homes. Instead of being the default surface to set your drinks (and your stinky feet) on, CRISTAL turns it into a universal remote control for your entire living room. The acronym stands for “Control of Remotely Interfaced Systems using Touch-based Actions in living Spaces,” a convoluted name for what’s essentially a coffee table that functions as a central [...]

    Homemade Donkey Kong Shelves Tilt Like Platforms In The Game, Surprisingly Keeps Items On Top

    Oh, you thought your shelves were cool?  Well, it’s not Donkey Kong cool! While it may not foster the best construction and design, these homemade Donkey Kong Shelves get it right anyway.  Mounted in tilting angles the same way they were set up in the game, they’re unmistakably lifted straight out of the classic platformer. A perfect set of Donkey Kong Shelves would have been made of steel.  Since no one seems to be selling that, the imaginative (but, obviously, [...]

  • Hourglass Brewer Takes 24 Hours To Make Your Coffee – Better Be Damn Good

    Hourglass Brewer Takes 24 Hours To Make Your Coffee – Better Be Damn Good

    Anytime you leave coffee in the pot for a couple of hours, it usually tastes like stale crap.  That’s why the Coffee Hourglass is so odd, as it promises great-tasting coffee that “brews” for up to 24 hours. Using an unusual hourglass frame, the contraption is designed to coax pure, concentrated coffee from coarsely-ground beans over that time.  As it uses no electricity, the whole process happens naturally and very…..very…..slowly. Each Coffee Hourglass weighs just under 2lbs.  It measures 14 [...]

    Want a huge stack of pancakes every morning for your family of ten?  No problem.  Install a ChefStack Automatic Pancake Machine in your kitchen and start cranking out piles of steaming fresh flapjacks every hour. Combining the words “pancake” and “automatic” usually meant having to find a local IHOP.  Not anymore, as it turns out.  Just crack a batter pouch open (you can buy them from the company too), slap it into the ChefStack and wait for the first one [...]

    Want the threat of a security camera without forking over the cost for a real surveillance system?  You just might get away faking it with the Spoticam, a desk lamp clad in the form of a CCTV recorder. Created by Antrepo Design, the Spoticam resembles a real deal box-style CCD camera, complete with a secure-looking chassis and tilting capabilities.  Since it’s actually intended for use as a low-light source for study desks, it fits in a lighting panel in place [...]

  • Blofield’s Inflatable Furniture Acts Classy, Appears To Succeed

    Blofield’s Inflatable Furniture Acts Classy, Appears To Succeed

    Inflatable furniture isn’t exactly the classiest thing around.  Dutch company Blofield, however, seems intent on changing that, with their new line of Chesterfield-style chairs and sofas that come complete with a premium price. Instead of the usual playroom and swimming pool uses, the air-pumped furnishings are meant for actual living room installation and has, in fact, earned enthusiastic praise since it debuted in design fairs last year.  According to designer Jeroen van de Kant, the unusual idea took two years [...]

  • ZeroEdge Aquarium Turns Your Fish Tank Into An Infinity Pool

    ZeroEdge Aquarium Turns Your Fish Tank Into An Infinity Pool

    Infinity edge pools are quite a sight to look at.  If you love that design, it’s possible your fish might enjoy it too.  At least, that’s what the ZeroEdge Aquarium seems to be going for, incorporating the sexy edgeless aesthetic into a fully-functional fish tank. Like infinity pools, the water spills over off the edge of the glass tank, right down into enlarged gutters that recycle the water back into the aquarium.  It creates a visually-stunning effect that’s unlike any [...]

  • Supersized Mouse Trap Catches Burglars, Instead Of Rodents

    Supersized Mouse Trap Catches Burglars, Instead Of Rodents

    I’ve long been a big fan of the sticky rat-trapping mat, which catches smaller rodents when they attempt to walk past it, only to find themselves glued on the sticky surface. This Anti-Burglar Mat takes the same concept, balloons up the size of the sheet and applies it to potential robbers. Developed by rat trap-maker Shimada, the theft-deterrent is actually an extra large adhesive doormat. Measuring 1 x 1.5 meters, the entire upturned side is coated with a layer of [...]
