For every woman who has nagged her spouse to put down the seat cover or every man who didn’t think it was his job (because she didn’t lift it after she was done,) there is a solution. Pressalit’s AutoClose features infrared sensors that keeps the cover open when someone is in the room and quietly closes it when he/she leaves. There are several different models that have the additional bonus of reducing airborne germs. Contact Pressalit for more information and price.

Still rocking the vinyls? Is your iPod lacking in content because of it? Denon has the hookup for you. The DP-200USB turntable doesn’t just spin your records, but also rips them to the integrated USB drive. The accompanying software (this one is XP/Vista only for now, unfortunately) features Auto Track Divide, which recognizes silence between songs and will insert a new track tab for each track, and Audio Waveform Recognition, which will analyze a track’s first 15 seconds and search Gracenote for you. Stylistically, this unit looks like something straight out of my own rec room at my parents’ house. It’s available for $250.

After watching Niels Diffrient, creator of the Freedom Chair, talk about how he approached chair design from a whole new perspective, we had to share it.
