There’s no incense, air freshener, or scented candle on earth that smells as good as freshly baked bread. So turning a loaf into a warm glowing lamp that probably smells amazing is worthy of some kind of award, right?. If not the Nobel Prize, then definitely your hard earned money.
Organisation is almost an art form — and let’s face it — not everyone’s an artist. If your suitcase and toiletry bag tend to slowly (or quickly) devolve into a homogenous nest of clothing and travel accoutrements, you’ll appreciate what the Lay-n-Go has to offer. Specifically: an easy way to keep your toiletries separate without having to reorganise them when it’s time to go.
There’s prbably very few of us who’ve put much thought into what kind of tape we use to wrap a gift — after all, choosing the paper is hard enough. But there’s a small subset of the population who couldn’t possibly consider giving a gift that wasn’t flawlessly wrapped. And it’s those folks who will be ecstatic to discover this Notchless dispenser that cuts clear adhesive tape without leaving that telltale zig-zag pattern on the edges.
We’ve all been encouraged to reduce, reuse, and recycle to help the environment, but helping Mother Nature can have its own consequences. Case in point: this simple block of wood called the Stix, which is strategically notched to let you reuse sticks or dried-up pens to construct a working elastic gun. Great for conserving our natural resources, but terrible for the poor co-workers caught in the crosshairs.
When you’re heading out into the wild with nothing more than a backpack to carry all of your supplies and gear, packing light and compact is your number one priority. And when mother nature is serving as your outhouse, a shovel has to be at the top of your packing list — preferably one as light and slim as the GG Camp Shovel, which looks no bigger than a shoe horn.
Typically it’s a watch’s hour and minute hands that make the journey around the face every day. But on Mykonos Design’s innovative Visus watch, they’re both parked at the quarter after mark — except that’s not how you read it. The numbers indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds are instead constantly spinning, forcing you to adjust how you read the time.
Second only to the Transformers and G.I. Joe as the greatest cartoon/toy lines of the 1980s, Voltron broke new ground in marketing, demanding kids beg for not one but five different toys in order to assemble one giant robot. In hindsight it was pretty sneaky, and now that children of the 1980s are all grown up, we should know better.
They’re not designed for those with emphatic penmanship, but Porsche Design’s lovely new Shake Pens will definitely appeal to those who like a perfect balance of form and function. Sure, the two designs might be a little on the chunky side, but that’s easy to forgive, since they house a mechanism that allows their ballpoint tips to retract and extend with a simple shake of the wrist.
