iPhone Coffee Table With Coasters

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Household, Misc. Tech,

iPhone TableSome people are really obsessed with their iPhones. Tuan Nguyen, Ken Thomas and a few buds got together to create this unique coffee table in the shape of the Apple phone. The iLounge members made the furniture out of corrugated wood and glue. They also made built-in coasters out of the icons. We like the design and figure we can put it alongside our Pacman Living Room Set in the room with the Super Mario Wall Decals.

Math Lamp Requires An IQ

Posted by Patrick Phelps Categories: Design, Household,

Math Lamp

If you’ve graduated beyond elementary math, this wall lamp created by Mingyu Jeung will be happy to turn on for you after you solve a randomly generated equation. If math really isn’t your thing – or you run out of fingers to count on – the integrated chalkboard may be your new best friend (though I wonder how you would see what you were writing…). As far as we can tell, problems appear to be of the simple add/subtract/multiply/divide variety, but a clever prankster would throw in a random calculus problem just to keep you on your toes.

Kenneth Lylover Surf Chair

Surf Chair

Kenneth Lylover created his Surf Chair for the “Internet Collection” competition at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair recently. It’s easy to see why he managed to nab the Best Product award. The arc-shaped chair has a built-in LCD display, a mouse and keyboard for the user’s lap, and a padded frame for comfort. We think it is a fine idea for couch potatoes who want to go the extra mile with their Net searching or those who work best in a semi-horizontal position.

Bed Makes Itself

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Household, Misc. Tech,

EasyBedFor those who never make their bed but feel that it is one of those chores that should be done, this self-making bed might be the ticket. The sheet is rolled out by two fasteners that move along on each side of the bed. Inventor Enrico Berruti admits that he created the EasyBed for people who couldn’t do it themselves, but added “also because I’m a little bit lazy myself.”

The bed was displayed at this week’s International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva which also included an injection-giving robot and, believe it or don’t, an e-mail analyzer that its creator says can determine if someone you meet in a chat room is actually the same sex that they claim to be.
