Corkers

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

ha, these are awesome. I’ll have to get some of these for my next wine party.

“These made my day. Corkers are a design collaboration between Oded Friedland and Reddish Studio forMonkey Business are push pins that you can prick into wine/champagne corks to turn them into little creatures! The options are ?Monkey?, ?Deer?, ?Buffalo?, ?Bear?, ?Bunny? ?&? ?Crow. The packaging turns it into a fun wine bottle hang tag/gift ~ perfect for the next bottle of wine… Take a peek at more details up close on the next page.”

For those unfamiliar with SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act), you must read and dig into this crazy Act that can and will pretty much screw up any freedom and innovation like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Reddit, etc if it happens. Please sign up to petition against it HERE. Learn more about it from the video above from Chris Hayes.


STEM: Citrus Zester

Monday, January 16th, 2012


Ooo, STEM is a simple design for a whimsical functional outcome. For a fresh zest of citrus on your food or drink, no need to cut it open…just stick it in and zap away (though I seem to recall zest being better from the fruits skin)

“A brilliant Quirky object currently undergoing production is the Stem, a quick, novel and efficient way to get that citrus zing without breaking out the knives.

Spray it, don’t squeeze it! Stem is designed to allow a cook to spray juice directly from a citrus fruit. No longer do you have to cut and squeeze your fruit to get the juice out like a common cook. With only one finger you can now spray citrus juice on your favorite foods evenly. Let Stem add a little zest in your kitchen and on your food!
Price and release date is TBA, and while you can’t do anything about the latter, they’re taking a survey on the former at the link above.”

Evolution of Games – Making Of

Monday, August 15th, 2011


awesome!
“This making of the “Evolution of Games” is an impressive, coordinated and directed masterpiece, and proof that not everything is done inside of a computer.
It’s fun to see the piece come to life while watching the finished piece in the same window. Hooray for handiwork. ”
