Thursday Props: Tak Brand Pushpins

I’ve still got a large number of articles that people have sent me that have literally been waiting in my draft box for months . This is another reader submission hawking his extremely cool pushpin called TAK. Yes, I said pushpin. No, I’m not on crack. I really have to respect this innovation seeing as […]

Ultraluxe- The Verailles Lighter by S.T. Dupont

Recently, Kaboodle asked me to write a weekly post for the Fab Finds column of the Kaboodle Blog. I was, of course, ecstatic at the chance to work for one of my favorite shopping sites. So when Kaboodle approached me, I decided that I wanted to write an extra-special, over-the-top weekly column which I will […]

The Seitz 6×17 Digital Large Format Camera

The Seitz 6×17 digital large format camera is something that needs to be seen to be believed. It is, quite honestly, the most amazing digital camera ever made. Where do I start? Well first, the construction of this camera is unparalleled. The body is made from aluminum billets that are hand tooled into the final […]

Suck My Bic: A Lolipop Pen Cap by Clement Eloy

Clement Eloy, a young French designer with a great sense of play in his designs, has come up with a hilarious product prototype. The design concept is to create a flavored candy pen cap which Eloy calls “Suck My Bic”. The idea is very perceptive because it recognizes people’s tendency to suck on their pen […]

WMF 1 Coffee Maker by WMF

I have found the perfect coffee maker for the coffee lover who is single and in need of everything in his or her life to look like an iPod. (I hate to judge, but that describes half of Silicon Valley!) Its called the WMF 1, which sounds a bit more like bowling machinery or a […]

The Maria USB Drive by Luis Eslava for ABR Produccion

Probably every blog and their mother has posted this Maria USB Drive by Luis Eslava from 2004. Unfortunately, most of the blogs (that I’ve seen, at least) have not given credit where credit is due, so definitely check out Luis’ site because Mr. Eslava is a great product designer with a strong sense of joy […]

Jellyfish Sonic by kota nezu of CO/EX

To the best of my knowledge, the Jellyfish Sonic is never going to make it to mass production, which is a real shame. This is a table straight out of War of the Worlds. The table top is a bulbous, alien shape that is made of a clear plastic. Encased in the plastic hovers two […]

Tengu: a USB Electronic Friend by Crispin Jones

Tengu is our happy USB friend! This little critter really doesn’t do much of anything except lip sync to the music coming out of your computer. This object, admittedly, is more crack than design. It doesn’t really do anything all that useful. It doesn’t even loo all that pretty. But, damnit, it’s cool. I dare […]

The 23/6 Mobile PC by Antenna Design for Fujitsu

This is a prototype design from a firm called Antenna Design for a new type of laptop. It’s basically made of three leaves that fold together to create a much smaller area than the current laptops, but the advantage to this design is the user would have a full size keyboard, which I love. Antenna, […]

The RPM 10 Record Player by Pro-Ject Audio Systems

I’m not really going to talk about the RPM 10 Record Player by Pro-Ject Audio Systems. I’m going to talk about what these record players stand for. The funny thing about the modern audiophile record player is the record player inevitably likes to display every piece and part of the machine as if it were […]
