I saw this at a local store and was very impressed by the idea. Mood-setting romantic light, and an emergency flashlight in one. I bet somewhere in the instructions it says, “Put the candle out before using the flashlight.”

A novel and proven way to eliminate persistent food smells from your fingers. “Wash” your hands with this stainless-steel soap for 30 seconds and the aroma of onion and garlic will be gone. A black plastic soap dish is included.
Nice but I think everyone has at least ONE piece of stainless steel whatever in their kitchen to rub their hands on.
I personally don’t find this that innovative but it does remind me of a time a time that I did take a swig of the wrong beer at a party and got a mouth foul of ash. Man that was gross.com. So I guess this thing does have its uses.

you’ve heard of patchwork for quilts, but have you heard of patchwork for wood? amy hunting a furniture designer and illustrator based in london has created furniture known as the ‘patchwork series’. the series consist of lamps, chairs and a book box. each of the products were produced using wood off cuts that were collected from factories around denmark. the lamps were cut out of large solid blocks of wood and made from small off cuts. there are 12 lamps in the collection and each can be stacked on top of one another. the book box has built in book stands and can be used for different size books. all of the products are made entirely from wood and do not use any bolts or screws.
There’s plenty to like here.
Yes yes yes!

Got a lot of stuff? Can’t remember where you put the power cord for that mobile phone you never use? Well designer Pietro Arosio for EmmeBi has your number. He just might be one of the first designers to think of something so obvious it makes my brain ache. He put numbers on these lovely drawer designs, making finding your stuff that much easier. That’s it! Numbers! Genius.
Great idea but I think the typeface chosen for the numbers are bleggh.
Your iPhone, HTC Touch, or Voyager phone might soon be helping you find your parking spot.’ -
Parking in cities across the U.S. is an often frustrating system that is anything but “smart”. How bad is parking? Well, just two years ago in San Francisco a 19-year-old, Boris Albinder, was stabbed to death over a dispute over a parking spot.
With the rise of thehigh-powered mobile phones, some innovative urban planners in San Francisco are hoping to use the success of these new gadgets to deploy a parking system that is truly smarter and will reduce stress and conflicts.
Pretty interesting but man oh man, does that sentence sound strange to ANYONE?
Well not that portable, but still pretty cool. The built in lighting is sweet dealin.
