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? Well actually there are probably lots of ways, but we won’t go there right now.  This nifty looking briefcase is solidly constructed and covered in sleek black vinyl. 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…

You are getting sleepy…

The Hypnodisk. $350.00. Ferrety reader Kaden makes ‘unconventional contrivances and machina arcana.’ They’re fun and rather nicely done, methinks.  The new benchmark in desk accessories, the ideal gift for the hard-to-buy-for, and significantly more appropriate recognition for the Boardroom Brigadier than another damned soapstone carving of a hooded ptarmigan.
