    This is the Bradley, a $195 - $275 watch designed to be read by the blind, but one that's also sleek enough for anybody to want to wear. Hell, I can see 20/20 and I still want one. Hey Terry, eat shit you f***ing monster! *squinting* Wait -- is this not my Google Chat box? ... / Continue →

    This is a series of geeky condom package designs by Australian artist Kode Abdo. Personally, I think condom packaging should contain inspirational messages like, "You can do this!", "Congratulations!", "I can't believe this is happening!", "High-five!" and "Think of spaghetti ... / Continue →

    This is the $185,000 Onyx Sofa from Peugeot. It measures 3-meters (~10-feet) long, 800-pounds, and is made from a chunk of volcanic rock and carbon fiber. It does not look like the sort of sofa I'd want to throw myself down on. Or make love on. Make love TO? Maybe. Regar... / Continue →

    These are the smiley face screws created by Studio Yumakano and the Komuro Manufacturing Company in East Osaka, Japan. They require a special smiley face screwdriver to screw into something. They're supposed to make everyone who sees them happy. Not a bad idea, but you know ... / Continue →

    This is designer Mieke Meijer's Object Élevé, a staircase that doubles triples (quadruples? I suck at numbers) as a desk, shelving and tables. Interesting idea. You know what be even more interesting? A staircase that doubles as a treefort. How cool would that be? Also, t... / Continue →

    This is the 'mirror fence' designed and installed by artist Alyson Shotz. It's a picket fence made with mirrored surfaces to blend into the environment and become less obtrusive. Me? I prefer obtrusive fences. My house is surrounded by a 14-foot electrified security fence t... / Continue →

    These are the Hanaga Tap Nose Outlets from design firm ekoD Works. They turn any horizontal plug into a nose-shaped vertical plug and come in black, white and pink. They also cost $35 apiece, which sent me into a coughing/near-puking fit when I first read it. That's a lot of... / Continue →

    These are the conceptual Justice League Redbull cans imagined by New York based art director Diego Fonseca. I would drink all of them. The Batman and Aquaman ones? Those I would chug. Speaking of, is an Aquaman movie officially in the works now or what? Because I feel like ... / Continue →

    Nice soul patch, E, you look ridiculous. This is a literal typeface created by French artist JC Debroize for graphic design studio Kerozen (where he's the creative director). So he really only made the letters to spell the company's name (E, K, O, N, R and Z) and you can forg... / Continue →

    This is the Flying Carpet Coffee Table from Duffy London (of this swingset dining table fame). It costs £1,495 (~$2,460, spit-takes blood) and has a base that looks like the carpet's shadow to give it that hovering appearance. Just to be clear though, it doesn't actually hov... / Continue →

    This is a collection of natural history museum inspired wallpapers from French companies NeoDKo and Deyrolle. Do people still put up wallpaper? I have no clue. I do still hang old movie and glow-in-the-dark mushroom posters to cover the holes I've put in my walls though. Cl... / Continue →

    This is the Glow-in-the-Dark White Rockets Flannel Bedding available from Garnet Hill. You can get pillow cases, bed sets and comforter covers with the design. The prices seem reasonable. The only thing unreasonable is they don't make them in a king or I would have already o... / Continue →

    This is the $1,050 DNA Bookcase made by Milano Furniture. It's six feet of spiraling shelves shaped like a double helix so you can arrange your books to look like little genome sequences. No lie, I have a friend who used to be a personal assistant for this rich lady and one d... / Continue →

    So, what do you wanna do tonight? We can watch the TV or my jackets and shoes. This is the Living Cube designed by Till Könneker. It's not actually alive though. It's FOR living, not living itself. Although I suppose the wood was alive once. Now it's dead. Tree bones. I... / Continue →

    This is the $26 'Splash Red Chopping Board'. It looks like a cartoon pool of blood. Or maybe a paint spill. I don't know, what do you see? Dripping tomatoes? "THE BLOOD OF MY ENEMIES RUNNING OVER THE CHOPPING BLOCK." Okay this was actually a Rorschach test and you failed,... / Continue →

    Because if you ask a cat or child, half the fun of a present is the wrapping or box it comes in, here's some novelty raw steak wrapping paper (currently a Kickstarter). The standard set includes steak and cutting board wrapping paper, while the grade A set includes both of tho... / Continue →

    First of all, the sink/urinal combo isn't a new concept. I posted one back in 2010 here, and I'm sure it's existed even before then. The idea is that the combo 1. will save water by using the 'gray' water you just washed your hands with to flush the toilet and 2. encourage du... / Continue →
