    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 [...]

    Spoticam Lamp Punks Thieves, Pretends To Be A Surveillance Cam

    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.

  • 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 [...]
