THE BEST Living

Socket Sense

Socket Sense

Not to belabor the name, but Ideative’s Socket Sense just makes sense: angled plugs combined with the ability to expand negate the need to play musical chairs with your adapters.

Flexicord Cables

Flexicord Cables

If you hate tangled cords as much as we do, these Flexicord Cables are a godsend: they remember their original coiled shape, allowing them to reduce clutter yet stretch when needed.

Concept: SoundBulb

Concept: SoundBulb

Let their be light … and sound: this SoundBulb concept seems a mite futuristic, as it not illuminates with LED lamps but streams music via Wi-Fi or bluetooth through 8ohm speakers.

Concept: iShelf

Concept: iShelf

Li Jianye’s iShelf concept is an exercise in anachronistic futurism; it’s a real-life version of Apple’s CoverFlow system, with angled cutouts that will hold up to five CD jewel cases.

The Bottler

The Bottler

If you happen to own a racing yacht (like us), you’ll want to keep a Bottler on hand; these ultra-lux bottle holders feature the same cardanic suspension used to keep ship compasses stable.

Solio Solar Power Charger

Solio Solar Power Charger

Want to keep your eco-proclivities on the down-low? This Solio Solar Power Charger features three fan-shaped panels that fold away; it’s good for charging your mp3 payer or phone.

Wogg Trouser Desk

Wogg Trouser Desk

Alright, so it’s not really called the “trouser desk:” Wogg’s 48 Desk/Table only looks like it due to a goofy-looking elastic fabric base that stretches as you adjust the height of the table.

Emperor Workstation

Emperor Workstation

Short of a toilet and a fridge, the Emperor Workstation means you’ll never have to leave your computer; it comes with reclining Recaro seats, HEPA filters and optional PS3. Thanks, Blake!

Designed for outdoor enthusiasts, Energizer’s Night Strike line of LED flashlights maximize durability and runtime; they’ll come in handheld, swiveling and multifunction flavors.

Bike Gear Bottle Opener

Bike Gear Bottle Opener

Steel Toe Studios excels at making cool stuff from found objects; their Cyclone bike gear bottle opener is our top pick; it’s welded to a steel bushing and then oxidized and hot waxed.

Shoot the Baddies

Shoot the Baddies

Finally, some targets geeks will appreciate: Olly Moss’ has a sweet “Shoot the Baddies” graphic that features our favorite movie and game villains. Note: vote for it at Threadless.

Micro Grappling Hook

Micro Grappling Hook

Designed for soldiers to snag trip or IED detonation wires, EOD’s Micro Grappling Hook is a life-saving device that’s also easy to pocket; it won’t, however, support your bodyweight.

3.5 Inch Floppies Poster

3.5 Inch Floppies Poster

Our days of swapping floppies are long over, but Antrepo takes us back with these posters; it shows how many 3.5″ floppies it’d take to install modern apps like iTunes and Photoshop.

Tire Pressure Caps

Tire Pressure Caps

They may not be glamorous, but these color-coded tire pressure caps make a lot of sense: available in 32 and 36 psi versions, they’ll let you know when your tires need air.

eBoy Peecol Toy Poster

eBoy Peecol Toy Poster

Our favorite artist of insane details is as it again: eBoy’s Peecol Toy Poster is droolworthy, with nearly 100 characters ranging from space aliens and robots to Playboy Bunnies.

Star Wars Clock

Star Wars Clock

While we’re expecting a copyright take-down notice any day now, this Star Wars clock by YOUgNeek has us reminiscing of Death Star trench runs and days spent womp-rat hunting.

Wordlocks

Wordlocks

If you’re tired of memorizing numbers, Wordlocks let you secure your bike or other precious goods with the good ol’ English alphabet; up to 100k word combos are possible.

40 Most Creative Lamps

40 Most Creative Lamps

Freshome’s 40 Most Creative Lamps post is pure linkbait, but we’ll bite: from Mario Bros. mushrooms and grenade lamps, we’ll never look at lighting the same. Thanks, Chris!

It’s nowhere near pocketable, but this Giant Swiss Army Knife by Wenger puts to rest any doubts about your preparedness; it squeeze in 85 tools and weighs nearly 3 pounds.

Repisa N5 Shelves

Repisa N5 Shelves

They don’t exactly stay out of sight when not in use, but Sebastian Errazuriz’s Repisa N5 folding shelves let you periodically mix things up while looking swank in a dark finish.

OTTO Espresso Maker

OTTO Espresso Maker

All caps usually spells pretentious; however, the OTTO Espresso Maker earns it, as it’s made almost entirely out of stainless steel and includes a DVD barista training session.

Survival In A Bottle

Survival In A Bottle

While it may not be enough for the end of the world, this Ultimate Survivor in a Bottle is versatile in a pinch, with a blanket, poncho, rope, compass, multi-tool, first aid kit and more.

Graffititek Bookshelf

Graffititek Bookshelf

With a maze-like, kinetic design that blows any bookshelf we’ve ever had out of the water, Charles Kalpikian’s Graffititek is a creative take on urban graffiti and streetlamps.

Rubik’s Lamp

Rubik’s Lamp

It’s too bad that Eric Pautz’s Rubik’s Lamp is just a concept; the original Cube is capable of 43 quintillion combos, potentially making this lamp the ultimate in geek decor.
