Go ahead, “touch it, love it” their website says, just don’t ask us how the damn things works. Do we look like Popular Science to you? It’s a high-tech alarm clock from award-winning designers Giebert & Funk. That’s what we know. We featured its big sister a while back and we struggled to explain that one, too. But it looks slick, futuristic, and keeps perfect time. This one comes in seven colors.
When her parent’s come by, try to keep them out of the room that you covered with Imperial Forces wallpaper. We like it, too. It’s high-quality and hand-screened and features Darth, Boba Fett, and the rest of our buddies from the empire. But don’t let them see it. They won’t understand and it will be awkward.
Years ago you ditched your big, boxy TV and upgraded to a flat screen. So why are your poor pet fish still swimming around in a tank from the 70s? They’d surely be happier in a sleek, new wall-mounted tank. And it’s not just good for the fishies, it’s good for you. These tanks save space, energy and feature convenient, touchscreen controls and auto feeding.

Prague-based designer Vadim Kibardin has taken what looks like a bold step toward a new, ultra-minimalism with his Black & White Clock. The clock is gone, and all that remains are the numbers. Four independently powered forms display nothing but accurate time when you mount them on the wall. During the day the numbers appear black, when it gets dark, the display turns white.
Remember college? No? Try this: Lose twenty pounds, empty your wallet, hide the kid’s car seat in the closet and light one of these candles. Let the youthful “Dorm Room” scent, a combination of cologne, weed, and Fritos take you back to those golden days of yore.
Nobody before or since has played a psycho-killer as naturally terrifying as Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Now you can re-live this sick and twisted moment of Hollywood history every hour on the hour. Artist-designer Chris Dimino has designed a cuckoo clock that re-enacts the bathroom hatchet scene from the film. When it strikes the hour, this cuckoo says, “Here’s Johnny!” followed by a scream from Shelly Duval.
