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.
The soon-to-be-released Sifteo game cubes are a new kind of puzzle. A sort of a digital mash-up of Sudoku, Rubik’s Cube, and a more cerebral Angry Birds type game experience. The number and variety of games cleverly designed to give you an interactive, mental challenge is growing every day. Shake, flip, match, and move your game cubes as each different game requires. Yes, you can let the kids play with them but you don’t necessarily have to.
It feels like we’ve barely got time for coffee and a slice of toast in the morning, but if you woke up one morning to the smell of fresh donuts coming from your kitchen, you might just slow your roll. This counter top donut machine is mess-free, easy to use, and makes batches of 30 mini donuts at a time. Think that’ll be enough?
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.
The Citrocasa Fantastic is better than the juicer you’ve got right now. In fact, it’s so good you might even use it. And this claim isn’t just opinion, it’s fact. The Fantastic extracts 100% of the juice and does it 300% faster. This little unit is also 40% smaller and cleans up 90% faster than that one currently collecting dust in your cupboard.
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.
If you’ve ever gone hunting for a good movie poster, you know they’re hard to find. So let us share. Italian-born London artist Claudia Varosio creates her own graphic take on classic films, designing totally unofficial yet awesome movie posters in a style that may just work perfectly with your décor.
Remember that annoying little dude in college who always saved empty liquor bottles from the parties and displayed them in his “trophy case”? No? Okay, well pretend you remember him. That same dude finally found something to do with his trophies. He’s making lamps out of them. And you can buy one. Or many.
Before you bend over for the lawyers and give her half of everything, you should really spend some of that capital. Maybe in the past, a 20-foot long animatronic Triceratops would’ve seemed like a waste of $350K. Not now. This thing’s got built-in digital motion sensors that cause it to move when you walk past. It also packs a thousand-watt speaker to belt out its terrifying, prehistoric skrawk. Seems like a bargain to us.
