A Genius Ice Tray

The IceOrb is one of the finest ice-related inventions on the planet. Fill up the outer mold with water then put the inner mold in and freeze it. Remove and presto: 21 oddly-shaped ice cubes. At $16, it’s totally not worth it but don’t let me hold you back. You can pick up one of those Lamborgini lighters while you’re ...

Mickey Mouse Returns As A Jedi

Ah yes, another Monday, another fantastic day filled with Star Wars goodness. Someone better call Lando. No, It’s not a party so don’t go grabbing case after case of Colt 45 malt liquor just yet. I just thought Lando would be interested in these $200 figurines. They’re a fusion of Disney and Star Wars characters. You’ve got Mickey Mouse as ...

When you’re under the influence of hallucinogens day in and day out, bright colors can make or break your evening. Pulling an all-nighter just wouldn’t be possible without PoiPlay. “…it’s like a firework show that doesn’t stink, smell bad or explode, and you can do it inside.” It’s a traditional form of juggling originating in New Zealand that includes a ...

He’s producing some of these fantastic-looking coffee tables that are made from 394 precision-engineered spheres. Each sphere is 70mm in diameter and can be polished to create the tinted glass top you see above. It’s gorgeous, no doubt, but furniture like this ...

Freedom Like A Shopping Cart

They say malt liquor tastes better on the street. I wouldn’t know because I don’t live in a cardboard condominium but I do enjoy my malt liquor. Apparently so do designers Barry Sheehan and Gregor Timlin for their concept of the Shelter Cart in light of Designbooms mobile living/storage competition. It’s your standard cart but flip it over and you’ve ...

Apoll Tabletop Fireplace

Siberia. You’re locked in a vicious poker game worth a $5 million pot. The wind howls outside and wood creaks with every movement. You look at the host. You and him both know that it’s cold and a fire is in order. The fireplace is out of commission, though, so what are you going to do? You could reach for ...

The Scopeclock: Time In A Tube

Ever have a cathode ray tube blow up in your face? You poor soul. With your disfigured mug, there’s little that could possibly cheer you up. After all, if I looked like the Two-Face I’d probably throw myself from a pier. This clock is sure to remind you of that terrible day your face became disfigured. That or your days ...

Toaster Bags For The Jared In You

Toasted bread is the way to go but sometimes I’m in the mood to toast an entire sandwich. Pork roll, egg and cheese on sliced Rick Astley bread can get a little sloppy when you try to cram it into a toaster. I’m not talking about those awkward toasters either, I mean your basic, run of the mill toaster. That’s ...

Essentially, the Smoon Ombrella is a device that acts as a light source and vaguely resembles a glowing moon in the sky when placed on your Manhattan rooftop or sun room or dungeon, etc. The product of furniture designers Beau ...
