Floor mopping robots are very useful considering where mopping sits on most people’s list of weekly goals. This one will clean wet or dry on tile, wood, cement, whatever you’ve got. Which is amazing. But unfortunately we’re still pretty far from sandwich-making and beer-fetching robots.
With a design inspired by your beer gut, this stool from award-winning furniture-artist Damien Gernay features a soft, pudgy seat of black leather and hardwood legs.
Like a Smart car for the sea, this 23-foot Italian made Micro Yacht gets you and a few friends on the open ocean for a fraction of the cost of those big rigs. The Jet Capsule is also well-equipped: the dining area converts to a bunk plus there are options like a compact kitchen, & even a private bathroom. via

As the lure of their big twin bikes continues to wane, Harley is taking extreme measures to get anyone under 50 on their bikes. Their solution: 2 new smaller displacement bikes, the 500CC and 750CC Street. Both are light, nimble, & very competitively priced plus they feature those classic HD looks. Maybe this will work.
Frank Zappa once said that the world won’t end in fire or ice. The other possibility: it will end in nostalgia. That probably has naught to do with Nikon’s new DF, an advanced digital DSLR with a full-frame sensor designed to evoke the golden age of square, clunky, knob-laden 35mm cameras of the early 1980s. Until its release next month shutterbugs and retro fetishists will be squirming in anticipation.
You’d probably want to know if your bedroom started steaming up when you weren’t at home. Odd example maybe but these Spotter multipurpose sensors from Quirky will let you know. They monitor motion, sound, temperature, light, and humidity and allow you to track it all on your mobile device.
