Shower Tap Radio

November 30, 2006

The Shower Tap Radio has AM and FM bands and sticks to the wall, shower cubicle or anywhere you like by it’s ultra powerful sucker. To tune in to your favourite station all you need to do is turn the tap, (that’s why it’s called the Shower Tap Radio)!, “then to increase the volume, just turn the tap again???”

I don’t know what the last sentence meant… and it looks cheap (but at £9.95, its not) but its still unique… by being so literal…

Mazda Nagare

November 29, 2006

Mazda’s design division has invented a new surface language called Nagare for introduction at this year’s Greater Los Angeles International Auto Show. Japanese for ‘flow’ and the embodiment of motion, the team was to invent a novel means of registering motion in vehicles whether they’re moving or still.

Foreign language to me… what I see, gills, ribs, dune…nice

kotztierchen stain camoflage

November 28, 2006

Lola, a messy eater, has somehow managed again to get a nasty stain on her shirt just before going out. But the fantastic ‘kotztierchen’ gives the stain a purpose by simply making it part of her outfit.

This is an excuse to eat like a slob… but what if curry is splated all over? Put more dogs?

Maybe it can save some space. Print your name on a stretched rubber piece then release and it recovered to its original smaller size. The name card is designed for a personal trainer and it is difficult to read until it is stretched. Only those people desperate enough will stretch your namecard to read your number… A design mayhem or special? I wander if the trainer got any business after that.

Tape Timer

November 28, 2006


There’s no need to hunch over and squint at the counter clockwise dials of an old-fashioned timer. Just pull up the measuring tape – marked with minute lines up to 60 – and watch it descend back into the timer, ringing as it reaches its destination. You can see from afar how many minutes are left with the length of the tape, and get an exact idea up close with the precise measurements of this aluminum accent. Imported. No batteries required.

I can do the same thing too with a measuring tape by locking it just a bit and let it coil back… but it really is a fresh idea.
