If you’re gonna travel to Russia on some kind of crazy, Winter Olympics-inspired, find-yourself journey, jot down Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya as a place to stay. Russian studio Arch Group took an old 4-story building in Moscow (not far from the Kremlin), and filled it with these stylish portable sleeping capsules to create a hostel-like hotel with a unique twist. These mobile modules hold one or two people and are equipped simply with beds, LED reading lamps, and electric outlets. Showers and toilets are located on each floor, and the Sleepbox lobby features a reception area, information zone, and individual lockers. If claustrophobia sets in, there’s a few standard size rooms to stay in as well.

Check out this creative speaker for your phone. The speaker BALLO for Hong Kong based brand OYO – Objects You Obsess provides massive sound for this tiny device.

Wireless Speaker System


Trio-Wireless-Speaker-System-2

Take a look at nicely crafted portable Wireless Speaker System that accompanies solid bass and excellent treble with added optimal quality and audio effects. The Bluetooth technology is the core of innovative gears these days, so don’t think about a sound system that doesn’t even have a wireless control. With integrated audio 3.5mm jack, this speaker system is good for wired music players as well. Play the music on demand right away and enjoy the soul soother.

The USB Watch.


The USB Watch is a simple way of carrying your memory stick in style. A 10-minute romp with the computer charges it enough to tell you the correct time for a week. What’s more, every time you hook it up it syncs in automatically with the computer’s time. The LED display shows you the current memory status at the touch of a button. I think it’s a clever integration of functionality and utility.

The Digital Post It Printer.


With the million things on my to-do list I need handy Post-it reminders everywhere. I even use digital Post-it notes on my phone because even with my assistant holding me down, I’m a scatterbrain. I like Dongyeon Kim’s idea of a Post-it printer with re-usable sticky notepaper. Sync it with the phone or computer and get notes printed in a jiffy.

Richard Branson’s Flying Submarine.


Described as an underwater aircraft, the Necker Nymph comes in tandem with the Necker Belle, Branson’s catamaran on the high seas.  But the Nymph allows boaters to get low, flying underneath the water to depths of 30 meters (98 feet). Helmed by a trained pilot, it soars at a speed of 6 knots (7 mph).  Dives typically last from one to two hours and passengers wear normal scuba breathing gear.  It’s housed at Necker Island, Branson’s luxury home in the Caribbean (the same one that indeed recently burned down).  The dives, which last for 1-2 hours at time, start at $2,500 per day.

The Future Computer.


This concept computer-of-the-future by designer Jakub Záhoř allows the user to operate the device anywhere they can find a glass surface. The user simply attaches the central unit to any glass surface like a window or coffee table, switches on the power, and watches their system light up before their eyes. The display appears as an interactive hologram on the glass that the user merely has to touch to operate. It also makes for an easy, take-anywhere way to project photos and presentations or stream movies. Windex not included.

The Apple Macmini Radio.


Apple freaks know pretty well that Jobs doesn’t indulge in concepts. Which is why any nugget that comes our way, we lap it up like starving puppies. Who wouldn’t love having this stackable Radio and Speaker System for Macmini on their table? Specs like Internet radio with access to about 10,000 stations worldwide, 2 front and 3 rear extra USBs and multi card reader, makes it a delectable item. Superb sound quality and quite sexy indeed.

The Continuance System.


This is so simple. Continuance is a set of batteries with a USB interface on the side. The batteries are rechargeable plus dole out some juice to stranded gadgets that are starved of power. Handy, compact and a totally do-able concept. Kudos.

The Kanto x Apple Speakers.


The Kanto Morph speakers were originally designed by Alp Germaner for a competition but he missed the fine print about it being a “skin design” only and so it was relegated to languish in the dark corners of his hard drive – that is, until we got our hands on it. Look, for once it’s a design not about nostalgia. It’s not ostensibly minimalistic and it’s contemporary. Yes it’s an iPhone/iPod dock but who says all Apple peripherals have to look like Cupertino designed them? I applaud his aberrant design choices.

The ”WineRack”.


Turn an A cup in to double Ds AND have your girl sport your favorite beverage for yourself and your friends.  Better than a boob job and cheaper too.  It holds 64 shots, 6.8 beers, and 3.2 bottles of wine.  And as a bonus, with a simple blow into the tube it’s easy to keep that full look even as you drink from your secret stash.  Sporting the WineRack will even give Pamela Anderson a run for her money while keeping the drinks on hand. The WineRack has been featured in PlayBoy (which means it must be good) and has been spotted on TV and in the news.  Take a bottle of wine, a mixed drink, or even a fifth of your favorite hard stuff to the movies, concerts, ball games, even PTA meetings.  Sporting a rack that will turn heads and serving a beverage that will have guys standing in line for a sip of your secret stash.  If you really wanna buy one, just click here.

A Washing Machine In Your Closet.


I actually semi-enjoy doing laundry because the results always leave me in some warm, cuddly, lethargic relaxed state. Maybe it’s the combination of heat and dryer sheets that does it to me every time. But, if you told me I could leave it all behind and have clean clothes each time I opened my closet, I’d hand you my credit card. This Washing Machine for the closet takes all the cake. Designed for men (men are apparently dirtier than women), it uses a combination of humidity, ionization, ozone (O3) and air pressure to destroy bacteria and remove stains. All you do is hang up your shirts, turn it on and within minutes, the waterless system provides you with shirts worthy of a dry cleaner’s award. It may seem large and cumbersome but if you’re getting a clean shirt every day, doesn’t that mean you only need one, maybe two shirts instead of ten? Plus it’s free of chemicals meaning Earth is happy and your clothes last much longer.

A Rolling House Gathers No Moss.


Roll It

Roll It, a cool experimental house, resulted from the collaboration among different institutes within the University of Karlsruhe.  This cylindrical design is a modular prototype that provides flexible space within a minimum housing unit.  Three different sections are dedicated to different functional needs: there’s a bed and table in section, an exercise cylinder, and a kitchen with a sink.
