Here we gather the coolest gadgets of the week. From the top useful gadgets to the latest trends of the web.
This Periodic Table of Swearing Magnets makes up one heck of a chart compiled by Modern Toss that includes a choice selection of expletives and swear words. Put these magnets up in a strategic spot on the fridge or a cabinet, and you won’t have to say anything more because the magnets say it all. Ai (45) is Arse it, while Bot (64) is buggering old twat.
The “Come Back With A Warrant” doormat is a funny quip aimed at unwanted guests knocking on your door. Of course, if you’re the sort who’s had more than one run-in with the law, then it’s literally a warning for the cops not to show up unless they have a warrant. In any case, it tells guests you’re not a doormat and they shouldn’t be walking all over you.
The Splash Red Spoon Rest from Mustard is a clever kitchen tool that keeps your countertop clean. Ladles and spoons dripping sticky food waste is pretty much unavoidable while you’re cooking, but you can contain the spill by using this spoon rest that looks like a splash of spilled red sauce. Look at it from a distance, and it’ll seem like you dropped the ladle and the sauce is just splashing out.
The Hammock Bliss Sky Bed is the world’s first two-point hammock that is truly a flat bed. The thing about hammocks is that while you get to swing and snooze in the outdoors, it’s not really as comfortable as a nice mattress. However, the Sky Bed aims to offer the best of both worlds by making use of an innovative asymmetric design and incorporating space for a sleeping pad.
The Pirate Corkscrew was designed by Nick Lerwill for Suck UK, and it’s a pathetic excuse of a pirate even by Johnny Depp standards. The corkscrew serves as the hook depicting a missing leg while an easy-open lever replaces a hand. The other hand is a foil cutter, with a bottle opener replacing the mouth and the trademark pirate’s eye patch.
These Magic Magnetic Feathers were designed by Young and Battagilia for Mineheart. You get a set of five soft white feathers that any bird or Indian Chief would be proud to sport. You can alternatively choose from a more colorful mix of woodland feathers plucked off the backs of pheasants, guinea fowl and black geese. These feathers have a magnetic tip that can stick to any metallic surface such as refrigerators, cabinets and lockers.
The Bamboo Paper Straws from Kikkerland Design are wax coated and food-safe straws. The printing is done using soy-based inks. Maybe you recycle your beverage cans and bottles, but the normal straws you use everyday are usually plastic that pollute the earth for hundreds of years. These straws, however, look like fresh green bamboo shoots and they’re green in more than one way.
The Guns Lounge Floor Lamp is a beautiful lamp created by Philippe Starck. If you’re a card-carrying member of the NRA, this would be the kind of lamp you want in your home to let people know how much you cherish your Second Amendment rights. Peaceniks may find it objectionable, but there’s no denying the fact that the shining die-cast aluminum stand made to look like a gun is a beauty.
The Little America Backpack from Herschel Supply Co. combines a large amount of backpack space with innovative modern functionality. The design is inspired by a classic mountaineering style, but incorporates all kinds of spaces for modern needs such as a media pocket and a fleece-lined laptop sleeve pocket. The main compartment has a cinch top closure, and the front pocket has a hidden zipper and key clip.
