    This is the Star Trek Federation shuttlecraft inspired camping tent concept designed by Dave Delisle. The shuttlecraft's thrusters double as the tent's carrying cases. Sadly, it will probably never become a real product because I question the market for a probably expensive S... / Continue →

    These are the Dino Lamps available from Firebox. They cost around $43 apiece and look kinda like they're origami. They're not paper though, they're plastic. Unfortunately, they only come with a UK style electric plug so you're going to need an adapter to plug them in elsewhe... / Continue →

    Seen here being modeled by a man who from now on we will only refer to as Dapper Dan, this is the 737 Cowling Chair constructed by Fallen Furniture. Although I guess Boeing could take some credit as well, considering it was one of their engines to begin with. Fallen Furniture ... / Continue →

    This is GROWTH, an origami pot created by London-based design firm Studio Ayaskan. The pot can be expanded as your plant grows so you don't have to repot. How convenient. You do have to add more soil though. Unfortunately, GROWTH pots aren't currently for sale, sorry to bur... / Continue →

    This is the conceptual MOLOCOW milk bottle packaging designed by the Imedia Creative Bureau in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. It looks like a UFO is abducting a cow. You know, I was just thinking the other day how ridiculous regular milk cartons are. Like, they're just so practical. ... / Continue →

    These are the chairs built from real AK-47 rifles by Austrian designer Rainer Weber. The rifles were dismantled so they were no longer operational, then welded together to form the chairs. I like the animal print upholstery, I thought that was a nice touch. You know, in case... / Continue →

    These are the beautiful pressed flower phone cases made by Etsy shop HouseOfBlings. They cost $17-$20 depending on the make of your phone. Some are just decoratively arranged pressed flowers, but I really like the ones that were made to look like little trees. I like little ... / Continue →

    This is the 'Tree In The House' conceptual home rendered by the folks at A. Masow Architects. It consists of a four-story cylindrical glass house built around a tree. No word what happens when the tree outgrows the home, but my guess is some expensive roof repairs. Or, if yo... / Continue →

    This is the Ideal Conceal Pistol, a $395 pistol being produced this summer that folds up into what looks like a smartphone. It's not a phone though, so you're going to have to find one to call 911 after you accidentally shoot a friend. The Ideal Conceal is a double-barreled .... / Continue →

    This is the Free Hug Sofa designed by Eun Kyoung Lee. Personally, it looks more like an armchair to me. You know, because it has arms. Plus it's not sofa sized. It should probably be called the Free Hug Armchair, but that's just me and I believe in calling them how I see th... / Continue →

    This is one of the minimalist design electric guitars built by Gittler Instruments. It's made from titanium rods and kind of looks like some sort of weapon from the future. Do you think it shoots blue lasers or red lasers? "Green." I bet you're right. ...this minimalist de... / Continue →

    These are some of the upholstered faux taxidermy animal mounts created by artist Kelly Rene Jelinek of Etsy shop LittleStagStudio. Prices range from $800 - $3,500 depending on the animal chosen and materials used. I'm thinking I want a lion head made out of my current sofa. ... / Continue →

    This is the DOG cat scratching post designed by Erik Stehmann. It also comes in a smaller PUP variety. The smaller one costs $385 though and the full size version is $716 so maybe just letting your cat destroy the sofa doesn't sound like such a bad idea now, does it? "Or buy... / Continue →

    These are several examples of South African designer Porky Hefer's Monstera Deliciosa collection of animal themed nest seats. Each one looks like a different animal and hangs from the ceiling, making all your guests jealous of your sense of style. You know what else you can d... / Continue →

    'More Sky' windows were designed by Argentinian architect Aldana Ferrer Garcia to give small apartments more access to the sky by expanding outward. That way you can lean against them and pretend like you're about to fall to your death. I don't think I could deal with that. ... / Continue →

    These are some renderings from the architects at Choi and Shine reimagining power line towers as giants. I am into this. I mean, provided my tax dollars don't have to pay for it. I just want the f***ing potholes in my neighborhood fixed. "Like the statues of Easter Island,"... / Continue →

    This is the Moon Glass, a ceramic cup that displays different phases of the moon as you drink from it (available in sets of two small or large cups for $24 or $30). That way you can daydream you're out laying in a field stargazing and not stuck behind a computer desk sending r... / Continue →

    This is Walkbump, a soft fist-shaped crosswalk button designed by Alfredo Adán that you fist-bump to push. Or you can do what I do and push it with your butt because you don't want to get your hands dirty. I live in a bad area where I guarantee less than 5% of people wash the... / Continue →

    This is the Pensword designed by Peleg Design. It turns a pencil into a sword. Is a pencil sword mightier than a pen AND sword? I am probably the wrong person to ask. I can't write for shit and the last time I held a sword I sent myself to the hospital. Still, i can't read... / Continue →
