Fagor TP-2006 X Flat Toaster

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2008

Fagor TP-2006 X Flat Toaster
This toaster tosses convention completely out the window. The Fagor TP-2006 X is a flat toaster and it looks way cooler than traditional ones. It also makes for a dangerous breakfast time. It’s probably not good for those with a house full of kids who like sticking their hands in objects.

Like other toasters, the Fagor TP-2006 X comes with a crumb tray that can be slid out. It’s clearly begging to have a burger on it’s grill as well, though I’m sure they do not recommend it. Looks like it can fit four slices of bread on it’s surface at once. It’s got me rethinking everything. If we can have a flat toaster, surely we can have a George Foreman grill that stands upright.

Home appliance alarm clocks

Home appliance alarm clocks
Sure, you can give your Mom this Home Appliance alarm clock for Mother’s Day…If you want to get smacked into next Wednesday. Listen son, your mom works hard every day. She’s got to clean up after your sorry butt, not to mention the rest of the family. Do you really think she wants to see yet another appliance that will remind her of all the work she still has to do?

Then again, if you really don’t care and she’s hard to shop for, go ahead and take the chance. The clock comes in a fridge, stove, iron, blender and washing machine. They’re priced at around $20 each. The washing machine shakes and shows a sudsy animation when it’s time to wake up. Oh, she’ll love that.

Tattoos for your toilet seat

Tattoos for your toilet seat
For some reason, humans like to put their own unique stamp on everything so they can stand out. Just look at all the tech add-ons that personalize their gadgets. And after centuries of tattooing their bodies, it’s time to tattoo the ole crapper.

Toilet tattoos are printed on a plastic film that sticks electrostatically to your plastic seat lid. They can be easily removed and changed or cleaned. They offer a variety of patterns and images, including holiday themes, so you can change the look of your can to match the season. Personally, I would want the frogs one, but I would want the image to change automatically. They would start off as happy frogs, but after somebody does their business and adds a few logs to the pond, the frogs would keel over and fall off their branch. Then when the smell dissipates, they would be happy again. See, it’s not only pretty, but kinda like a refuse radiation detector as well.

Custom installed home bowling alleys
If you’re sick of playing bowling on the Wii and heading to the nearest bowling alley seems like too much work, why not enjoy a bowling alley in your home? You’ve seen it in movies and on TV. The show Las Vegas comes to mind. YOU can now have a custom bowling alley in your home too.

United Bowling is a Florida based company that will install a 2 lane, regulation length bowling alley in your home. It will have genuine AMF and Brunswick equipment. Of course, you’ll need an area that’s 88 feet long, 12 feet wide with a 10 foot ceiling. If that’s a problem just knock down a wall. There’s got to be something you don’t need. At $88,000 it’s not a cheap, but you could always charge your friends to play.

Japanese Teahouse or glowing peanut?

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2008

Behold the glowing peanut
This Japanese teahouse resembles a futuristic glowing peanut SPACESHIP with a huge docking bay in front. This inflatable Japanese teahouse is designed by Kengo Kuma, and was created for an exhibit at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt. Inside you’ll find a bunch of LED lights that not only light the place up, but they also serve as an interior heat source.

Normally this type of structure does not make it past the drawing board, but the Japanese have more guts then we do when it comes to architecture. It almost looks like a real living organism. Put a few futuristic fighting samurai outside guarding the door and you have yourself the opening to a cool Sci-Fi flick.

At last: Pac-Man interior lighting

The mighty Pac-Wall
I haven’t seen anything this cool since the Pac-Man Christmas tree in Madrid. Unlike the Pac-Man tree, this Pac-Man-inspired modular block lighting system can stay up year round.

This wall mural is on display at the Maison & Objet 2008 show in Paris. One thing you’ll notice right away is how outnumbered our yellow friend is. That’s a ton of ghosts for an 8-bit hero to gobble. They could have put some fruit in or more dots. The second thing you’ll notice is that the woman’s rear has been blocked from our view. Oh well, you can’t have it all right? We’ll always have Paris my secretive Pac-Man loving geek goddess.

Game Boy bricks might help your resale value

Game Boy bricks
With the housing market being what it is, homes need all the help they can get. Anything to add some value, should you want to sell down the road. So, why not get some of these Game Boy bricks and redo a garden path in the backyard.

These are the brainchild of a Denmark man who wanted to add some gaming to his architecture. You have to admit, they look pretty nice after they’ve been in place and aged a bit. Here I thought the actual Game Boy was about as useful as a brick these days. The guy put alot of time into perfecting these. At first they would explode in the oven, but he finally got it right. If you have a gaming themed home, why not go the extra mile and sink some of these into your dirt.

ChiliPad mattress keeps your bed just right

ChiliPad mattress keeps your bed just right

This one is like the Chillow pillow we told you about last year. Instead of a pillow, it’s an entire mattress and is a good idea no matter what climate you live in. It’s capable of heating and cooling itself so you can be comfortable in bed. That way you can fall asleep faster or let it help you stay awake. The ChiliPad uses a small and nearly silent motor that they claim is similar to semi-conductor technology that cools your computer. This heats or cools water, which is pumped through coils inside the mattress.

With the included wireless remote you can control the temperature between 68F and 118F. As you might have guessed, it is not priced cheaply, $479 for a single zone twin and $999 for a dual zone king. But hopefully you can save enough money on nighttime heating in your home and cooling costs, so that it will pay for itself. It will also solve that whole Goldilocks and the 3 Bears thing: It won’t be too hot, it won’t be too cold, it will be just right.

Honey can you move the fireplace?

Posted in Home by Chetz on October 16th, 2007

Max Blank wood burning fireplace swivelsGerman designer Max Blank has a 21st century heating appliance that also serves as the center of your living room. This is the company’s Berlin model wood-burnings fireplace, a stand-alone unit that can sit anywhere you like in your dwelling. The gray finish with glass base compliments the Panasonic line of televisions so they have that going for owners of Panasonic home theater equipment.

There’s room for four shelves for you to display your knick knacks. Emissions and smoke are carried up the center pipe so all you’re limited to is where your chimney is located in the room. But the really stand-out feature of the Berlin fireplace is that the glass base can swivel a full 360-degrees allowing you the opportunity to face the fire no matter where you are in the room. Don’t move toward the fire, this time the fire can move to face you. Now where’s our swiveling bathtub?

The Chillow Pillow

Posted in Home,Sleep by Darrin Olson on September 6th, 2006

ChillowThis is little sleep assisting gadget is called a Chillow from Soothsoft, a pillow that keeps you chilled. Even if it didn’t work I like it for the name and the idea.

This chillow is designed to eliminate the need for you to flip your pillow over and over at night to find the cool spot. If only my pillow would stay cool, or chilled?

It’s made out of some sort of foam or gel material, and you need to add water. There is no mechanical parts or electricity that keep it cool. You just insert it into your pillow case and it automagically draws heat away from your head and keeps it cool for hours.
