Roll 3d6 to save? How about you and the Dungeon Master go head-to-head, best of five with the ol’ Rock Paper Scissors? It’s also good for settling petty disputes among friends. Who gets to ride shotgun?
This minimal speaker was designed by Hironao Tsuboi for Kent of British American Tobacco. While I have trouble understanding why a tobacco company would need a cool and funky speaker like this, it looks pretty darned good.
I’m not a very huge fan of dustpans. Or brooms, for that matter. But both are essential if you want to keep your floors dirt, dust, and hair-free.
Maybe it’s the way I sweep or how I hold the broom, but I’ve never been really good at getting all that dust and dirt into the pan after I’ve swept through the entire room.
I admit that I have a bunch of tools around the house and I can only find half of them. Every time I need a tool, it’s generally the basic screwdriver or hammer that I am on the hunt for and just can’t find.
Nothing annoys me more than the sight of cables and wires in disarray.
I have a lot of those plastic wires to hold the cables together in a bunch. While these don’t really make things look better, it does make everything more organized and orderly.
I’m a pretty forgetful person, so the responsibility of unplugging some plugs from the wall outlets at night was given to my sister. I also have this unusual (or typical?) fear of sparks flying around whenever I plug a plug into a socket, so I also don’t like having to be the one to do the plugging at home.
I’m a pretty forgetful person. When I print a document out, it’s only then that I realize that I’ve forgotten to type the date in the document that I’m about to staple together. Usually I just print the first page again, but if putting in the date affects the entire formatting of the thing, then I have to print everything out again.
I remember back in the day when vacuum cleaners were huge, noisy, metallic machines that had to be lugged around or dragged around on stands with wheels. My mother used to have me carry the heavy vacuum while she went around with the hose and the vacuum’s brush head, poking it around here and there and in corners everywhere.
The Sasan Magic Carpet is the jack-of-all-trades or the rug-slash-mat that is the furniture equivalent to the Swiss Army knife. That’s because it’s not just a rug or a mat. By folding it over and moving the straps around, you can go from a flat bed to mat to lounge chair in an instant.
How’d you like to fast-forward to the year 2020, and get a sneak peek at the MacBook of the future. Well, industrial designer Tommaso Gecchelin has already done the hard work for you, with his concept MacBook 2020.
If you find it easy to sleep through – or turn off, or destroy – one alarm clock, designer Jongwoo Choi’s concept is just right for you. And by right, I mean unmercifully wrong. Jongwoo’s Cicadidae Clock has several Bluetooth dongles that can turn any device with a 3.5mm audio jack into an alarm, so when that preset time arrives you’ll have to hunt down all of the dongles to get your sanity back.
Before you leave the club and head on over to your car to drive your tipsy self back home, I recommend that you run by your level of drunkenness via this Tokyoflash watch that has an Alcohol Test Function built within it.
I would imagine that most people out there are at least familiar with Guitar Hero and music games like it. You can get Rock Band on the iPhone for instance, but if you want something with a little more movement to it that brings the air guitar to life, the Air Guitar Move concept could be it.
I have to say that designboom’s recent competition to inspire new laptop and tablet devices for Fujitsu [JP] has included some pretty cool concepts. The latest to surface is this hybrid tablet that would have a compact fold-out keyboard that could work in either orientation.
