Sapore dei Mobili: Creating Furniture That’s Good Enough to Eat
We’ve already got lickable wallpaper, so what’s next? If you thought of replying with “edible furniture,” then you’re right on track. Seems like Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada and Portugese designer Rui Pereira were already on-board the edible home interior train with their Sapore dei Mobili.

Super Mario Mushroom Case Mod: Power On to Power Up
We love a good retro case mod and nothing says retro like a Super Mario Bros. mushroom.

High-Tech Almighty Board Takes on Three Major Roles in the Kitchen
Cooking isn’t and has never been one of my strengths. But since it’s incredibly wasteful and unhealthy to keep getting takeout or ordering for a delivery, I’ve since resorted to steaming most of my meals.

TapCaps: So You Can Wear Gloves and Still Use Your Touchscreen Phone
Even though we’re headed towards the warmer summer months, there’s still that random cold spell that makes it nearly impossible to leave the house without gloves on. This becomes a problem when you have to use a touchscreen device, simply tapping or swiping at the screen with a gloved finger makes nothing happen.

Dino Avengers Excavated & Assembled

Scientists Building Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver
Dundee University researchers have created Doctor Who’s sonic screwdriver. Or at least a rough version.
