Replug, a series of adapters and extension cables that couple between headphones and devices, turning standard 3.5mm audio jacks into breakaway connections. Each product comprises a plug tip that is attached to the body via a resilient elastomeric ring. When too much force is applied, Replug simply detaches from itself, preventing catastrophic damage to the audio equipment. The product series currently includes headphone adapters and 6-foot long extension and audio cables.

Zip Stool

August 22, 2008

This rice straw is used to make an eco-friendly furniture called “Zip”. Using a belt that normally used to stabilized boxes or furniture when moving out, it strap and compressed the rice straw into a bundle and cut the top of the rice straw to make a nice stool.

Open burning of rice straw after harvesting is a common practice in certain Asian country so this actually solves a pollution problem.
