Destruct 3 Board Game

December 31, 2008

In Destruct 3, players take turns building a small tower while their opponents try to bring it down using one of 3 ‘destructro’ devices including a catapult, a wrecking ball pendulum and a ramp.
Besides the promise of smashing stuff up real good like, the game also teaches concepts like cause and effect, as well as basic engineering premises while you try to construct and position your tower to withstand the attacks.
Very nice…

Kissing Octopus Flash Drive

December 30, 2008

Winner of an iF Design Award, this 8-legged drive comes in light pink and sky blue hues, and 2 / 4 / 8GB varieties. The two-piece contraption consists of the octopus body as well as the USB / nose part, which has a magnetic end which can be used to make a pair of octopuses a couple or be used to stick love notes to metal surfaces. The 4GB version can be yours for around USD65 but i wonder if the magnet will scramble any data…

Now, what I really need is a car wash hose with flood light built in!

Random pic of the week

Designer Hyun-Woo Sim likens life’s precious moment’s to a lock that only you have a key to. The Key Lamp follows that premise. To turn it on a key has to be used to move the switch to the on position, and vice versa.
