This Tea Kettle concept turns tea brewing into a (mad) science: its boiling and cooling stations resemble test tubes while a tea-dispensing aluminum stick looks like a nuclear fuel rod.

Perfekt Desk

Perfekt Desk

So “kool” it had to drop the “c”, the Perfekt Desk is a 6 foot table that uses a mix of CCFLs and LEDs for some uber-out of this world lighting; check out that Borg light at the top.

100-Year Clock

100-Year Clock

Che-Wei Wang’s 3.16 Billion Cycles clock will fall apart after 100 years; a 60rpm motor drives a cascading array of wheels, the last of which causes the outer arc to fall in a century.

Stereovision Coffee Table

TAD Gear B.R.A.T.T.

TAD Gear B.R.A.T.T.

Despite its name, TAD Gear’s B.R.A.T.T. is a helpful titanium billet tool; it can serve as a screwdriver, nail puller or bottlecap lifter, and also as a self-defense tool in a pinch. Thanks, Chris!

Cozies aren’t just for the ladies: these Cowhide Koozies put the “moo” in manliness with hand stitched hide and neoprene that’ll keep your beer at a cool 40 degrees. Thanks, Manny!

Magnetic Water Clock

Time in a (water) bottle: the Water Clock uses magnets to drive two balls around for the hour and minute hands; you customize it by using your own plate or glass to hold water.

Laptop Pillow

Laptop Pillow

It’s actually from a Mexican Pepsi ad, but we think this cushy laptop pillow is cool enough that someone should sell it as a novelty item; it gives new meaning to sleeping on the job.

Darth Vader Alarm Clock

We’d think twice about snoozing with this Darth Vader Alarm Clock, which features three sound effects, glowing red digits, audio jack input and force grip if you nap too long.
