The Walking Wheel.

Face it… everyone ages. By then, you’ll appreciate having as many alternatives as possible to get around. Designed as an introduction to assistive mobility, the walking wheel takes inspiration from the traditional walking stick without the total reliance. Designer Markus Erlando Gekeler certainly knows so.

The Walking Wheel can be used as a crutch for walking or leaned on for support when standing. An integrated pressure-sensitive brake gives the user grip in both modes. Because it uses the same diameter as standard bicycle wheels, it can be fitted with tires of varying tread type to accommodate different terrain types and scenarios from hiking to casual walking. Better yet, there’s nothing quite like it! So, it doesn’t have the stigma associated with old age and physical debilitation.


Spin The Shot


Spin the bottle was one of our favorite childhood games, and the folks at Barbuzzo have just introduced a modified version for adults aptly called Spin The Shot. As you can easily guess from looking at the device, this game is just like spin the bottle, but without the middle school kissing. Unless of course you want to make your own rules. Simply pour a shot of your favorite good stuff into the provided shot glass, spin the wheel, and whomever the arrow lands on must take a shot.
