Magnets Are The Secret To The Ultimate Cookie-Dunking Contraption

For every Kickstarted product that succeeds and makes it into the hands of consumers, there are hundreds that don’t.

Self-Contained Motorised Wheels Could Give Us Autopilot Shopping Carts

Here’s an innovation you probably never realised you wanted until just now. Japan’s Denso corporation has created a compact, self-contained wheel that includes a motor, a battery and wireless communications allowing it to be driven and controlled remotely.

These Two Guys Want To Turn The Entire Planet Into A Typeface

You'll Never Lose A Music Festival Schedule Temporary Tattoo

An opportunity to hear many of your favourite bands isn’t the only reason to attend a music festival. There are other recreational activities to enjoy, but they don’t always leave you in a state where you can remember who’s performing next at which stage, where you left your schedule, or even your first name. So a temporary tattoo that puts the event’s lineup right on your forearm is a great idea.

You Could Smuggle The World's Smallest Game Console Anywhere

So how do you convince a bunch of hackers to buy a tiny thumbnail-sized OLED display called the TinyScreen that’s designed to interface with the TinyDuino platform? You show them how to build what has to be the world’s tiniest game console, which is small enough to smuggle or be discreetly played anywhere.


A Redesigned Drain Cover Fixes The Worst Cleaning Chore In Your Home

Taking out the garbage is never fun. Vacuuming the living room is rarely enjoyable. But few chores are as despised as having to clean the hair from the drain cover in your shower. Thankfully, a clever designer named Chen Wanting agrees, and has come up with a brilliantly simple solution allowing long hair to be just easily rinsed away.


Simple Grooves Let This Rubbish Bin Hold Small Or Multiple Plastic Bags

It’s easier to feel less guilty about forgetting your reusable bags for grocery shopping when you plan to use the plastic ones for garbage later. And in turn it wouldd be easier to use those plastic bags for garbage if this clever rubbish bin concept, featuring strategic grooves to accommodate small or multiple bags at once, were a reality.


A Stylish Water Filter You Don't Have To Hide In The Fridge

Taking its design inspiration from the pour-over coffee setups that are so en vogue right now, KOR’s new Water Fall filtration system separates the actual filter from the vessel, letting you fill glasses, carafes or bottles without ever having to carry the whole rig around.


A Wearable Camera That Would Turn Into A Drone And Fly Off Your Wrist
