  Last Christmas one product on Curiosite broke all sorts of records.

You can finally use your iPhone's features on cold winter days!
  Going without the wonders of your iPhone or freezing your fingers off in sub-zero weather; that's the sort of dilemma users of Apple's most prized treasure face on a typical winter day.

  Being environmentally friendly is definitely "in", and it's amazing how many inventions emerge based on the notion that "recycling is creative". And, if these inventions also improve quality of life, they become sought-after objects of desire. Because, after all, we all need to exploit our eco-cool side.

These clever clothes hangers are a point in case. All you need to get them to work is a couple of empty plastic bottles.
