Take your goldfish for a walk. He would do the same for you
Take your goldfish for a walk. He would do the same for you
  Your poor little goldfish must be fed up of watching the same scenario day after day. Why don’t you get hold of a portable fish bowl and you take him for a walk? Imagine being all day long trapped inside a bubble and you will get close to know how boring it could be your poor goldfish world.

You can use it to carry your goldfish around and take him on holidays with you and take him to your friend’s if being apart from him even for a little while is so hard for you.

This portable fish bowl is made of methacrylate, a material knock-resistant, designed by Israel designer Michal Shabtiall.

The Remote Control Is Mine!

Holding the remote control is like holding power, that’s so at least at home. We’ve all fought for holding it at hand, it’s nearly some object of desire. Here we pay a well deserved tribute to it selecting some of the most curious ones.

  Nikola Tesla developed the first remote control back in 1893, but it was not until mid 20th century that this invention became popular and started to be used in households all over the world. The remote control revolutionized the lazy audience’s world with its remote technology: getting up the sofa was no longer an issue to zap and flick channels (although there were not many channel options back then.)

It becoming popular meant the end of family quarrels in front of the TV fighting to decide who would be the one getting up to flick channel.

Delicious and Non-Fattening

An inflatable toast, a giant ice-cream, a soft doughnut... All these delicious food itmes are useful products really. Can you guess what they are good for?

They’re not edible, what are they good for?
They’re not edible, what are they good for?
  February 2008, sales and ebay bids for a somehow forgotten product suddenly start rocketing: the hamburger phone. Why would this phone –left behind for years and years since its golden years in the 80’s– be all the rage again? The answer is in the cinema: a movie came to its rescue putting it on the ears of the main character – Juno.

With your Poken Panda no need for visiting/business cards anymore

Christmas in Japan

Japanese Christmas is quite of a commercial hype. Christmas Eve is synonym for "romantic night" amongst young couples, but the truth is that not as many people celebrate that time together.

  How is Christmas in Japan?
By Christmas time, Japanese cities and towns light up and shine full of colourful lights (even more than usual) and shops and stores make a fortune in this shopping paradise. Local shops and big stores put their Christmas full dresses on, adopting the typical western-style seasonal look; Christmas trees, garlands, gifts, etc... Christmas in Japan is quite of a commercial hype really.

Where is my iPod?
Where is my iPod?
  From home to work, from work to the subway, from the subway to the supermarket... You barely come off your iPod only when having a shower? Are you an iPod-aholic loving your music player above any other thing, and when the batteries run out you feel like dying?

Life-Sized Mario Bros

An artist has recreated the setting where Mario Bros, one of the best-selling videogames of all times, takes place.

Landscape is an interactive room
Landscape is an interactive room
  In 1983, Nintendo developed Mario Bros, a videogame staring the plumbers Luigi and Mario, two brothers who work in and around the sewers of New York. If you’re part of the Tetris generation, that is to say, if you’re in your 30’s, you’ve probably played this game a million times either on one of those huge machines in an arcade or, if you were really lucky, on that oh-so-cool dirty-grey Game Boy.

Paper Bottles

They’re light, ecological and made out of recycled (and recyclable) paper. These bottles are the natural successors of plastic containers.

Six colors to choose from
Six colors to choose from
  Plastic is one of the most pollutant materials in the world. It’s to blame for much of the debris in the oceans and the death of several species of marine life. How do we plan on solving this problem?

As far as bags are concerned, bags that made out of fabric are slowly replacing the plastic bags that have always been used by supermarkets and grocery stores.

Rubik Mania

So many objects imitate the mythical cube’s design, that you could spend an entire day surrounded by Rubik products.

Start the day off solving problems
Start the day off solving problems
  In 1974, Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernö Rubik invented a cubed-shaped mechanical puzzle with different colored sides: the mythical Rubik’s Cube. A year later he got a patent on it and, ever since, this magical cube has kept growing and spreading throughout the world.

Who’s never gotten their hands on one? We’ve all tried to solve it, almost invariably without success and trying to cheat by peeling off the square stickers in order to falsely get one monochromatic side.
