Inspired by retro memorabilia of the 80s, Jonathan Ball crafted this super cool Ms. Pac-Man poster with Blender. It’s the same open-source package used for Big Buck Bunny.
We like the Halex Wireless Phantom Dartboard’s detachable scoring unit; mount it to a portable display stand to keep track of scores from the toe line. Handles both soft and steel tip darts.
Steelcase’s Airtouch is a height-adjustable desk, ideal for users with ergonomic needs. It can elevate from sitting to standing position in 1 second, yet requires no electricity.
You’d be half right if you think “Brunopasso” sounds like an Italian supercar: designer Tadahito Ishibashi’s espresso machine sports race-inspired gauges and a sexy, sinuous design.
Bertrand Planes’ Life Clock literally ticks along at a snail’s pace as it counts down the years (from 0-84). Unfortunately (or fortunately), we’ll never have one–only seven were ever made.
MartinBauer’s Tournament Pool Table ditches wood in favor of a metal truss structure with LED lighting. It’s not just for show: the materials are high quality, with Italian slate and German bumpers.
We can’t decide if Saeco’s Etienne Louis Espresso Machine is, in fact, an espresso machine, or a bad-ass, death-ray spewing tripod with medieval touches bent on world domination.
Coders and developers will love the Equation Bookshelf concept by Estudio Breder, which uses brackets, braces and parentheses as clever adjustable bookends.
The Sooloos Media System is a music hub: use the 17″ touchscreen to to choose tailored music “recipes”. At $13k, you can also sync up with your numerous beach houses and penthouses.
Luiza Barroso and Quentin Vaulot’s Oficio Workstation concept makes a space for those who are both messy and neat, by designating one half of the desk for clutter.
Pininfarina’s Xten Chair has advanced ergonomic features befitting its sporty heritage: lumbar support, adjustable headrests and arms, and synchronized back and seat tilting.
No, it’s not a military project gone awry–this Automower is a robotic, solar-powered lawnmower that does all the cutting for you. It even includes an anti-theft alarm.
If sitting down tends to make you squirm, a Webble may alleviate at least part of that tension. It’s essentially a mobile footrest that allows your feet to fidget away while you work.
Direct Designs’ Notebook Grill has a host of virtues that make it extremely appealing: lightweight design, handles that double as legs, and highly portable folding design.
The PICO Hybrid Radio combines both DAB, FM and internet radio into a splash proof package. It’s powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery, making this ideal for outdoor and bathroom use.
This Quadraflex speaker has a timeless style; it was designed over 50 years ago by Ray and Charles Eames. They’re for serious collectors only: you’ll need to hunt for them.
New at ThinkGeek: the Exposed Flip Clock allows you to watch all 86,400 of your daily seconds tick away in agonizing detail. The gear on the left is a 24 hour alarm.
Steinway Lyngdorf’s Model D Speakers literally cost an arm and a leg, and are targeted towards (well-heeled) audio aficionados. Finishes include black lacquer, fine woods, gold and chrome.
Arthur Yung and Clemen Cheung’s Decode Clock reminds us of Ross McBride’s Normal watch: the hours are “encoded”, with the hollowed-out hour hand serving as a decryption key.
Designed by Harald Hynell, the Lap Tray takes work off the desk and into bed. The 24″ width is large enough for a laptop and a cup of joe; the cushioned bottom is a nice touch, too.
Got mad culinary skills (or think you do)? Check out GelPro’s gel-filled floor mats. These contemporary non-slip mats reduce fatigue on hard floors, are easy to clean and kill bacteria, too.
We have dreams (nightmares?) like Eboy’s Tokyo Pixel Poster, which makes this a must-buy. Sure, the giant robots are cool, but I bet you didn’t see the naked chicks on rockets.
Skate Study House takes skateboards off the street and into the living room; the results are remarkably sophisticated. Above: the God Father Lounge Chair is an homage to Eames.
We hate wires, and dream of the day they’ll all be eliminated. Until that day comes, Cableyoyo’s low-profile cable organizers do the job nicely, and slip right into your pocket.
The Ionic Ashtray promises to eliminate cigarette odor by giving smoke particles a negative charge and drawing it to its positively-charged dome. Whatever, it’s only $20 and looks cool.
If you can’t get enough of this year’s Olympics, Christina Bjorn’s Lighthouse torch keeps the flame alive. This modern oil-burning lamp is made out of porcelain and aluminum.
