Flower loo.

A happy toilet design? Do we need a happy toilet? Is it really, truly necessary to global wellbeing? Well OK, if you insist.   Brings fresh air into the smallest room! A birdy that sings with every flush and a sun that’s always shining! This flowerpot needs caring, water daily and manure at least twice a week. Grows best in full sun, but also looks perfect in the shade!

Dollar ring.

Yes it’s old methinks, but still fun. The Dollar Note Ring. Impress your fiancee by folding them a 20, eh?  As with all these instructions, try to start with a relatively clean, crisp bill. It will make the process easier. All folds should be sharply creased. It helps to go over the fold with a fingernail on a flat, hard surface. For your first attempt, use a 1 dollar bill, as the description is based on the features of the…

Xero hero.

The Xero weightlessness program. These Swedes have taken the work of these Russians, see, and given it some style. Stripped pine floorboards, chrome fittings, Flash animation and an ice hotel. But still and all, being flung about in a looping aircraft is still what it is….know what I mean?

Dog pound.

Dog is a God. Italy, a land hitherto known mostly for its rabid pasta fetish and the crafting of very long, very straight roads, now brings the world – doggy divinity. Words fail… [Thanks Bill]  Marco Morosini has chosen to become an animal designer, creating temples for four-legged Gods: tailor made habitats created in the likeness of those of man and designed for their different attitudes and lifestyles. These habitats bark exclusivity, class, elegance and comfort.

Geeky briefs.

Computer Code Briefcase.$24.99. What better way to say that you love Keanu, than to wander around in a black plastic mac carrying one of these?

On the sides is printed a slew of text uuencoded in old-school monitor green. It can’t be translated, due to the silver metal fittings and trim, but…
