In 1995, a straight-and-narrow businessman (Luke Wilson) who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment, finds himself in the middle of a whirlwind filled with starlets, conmen, Russian mobsters, federal agents and international terrorists, all while trying to hold on to his marriage and family.”
“Ever felt icky about putting down your toothbrush onto the sink? Keep it rested on the toothpaste or balance it on the soap dish, but never flat on the sink surface! For hygiene-freaks like me is the DEWS Toothbrush by Ryan and Harc, an ergonomically designed brush that keeps standing upright and never tipples over. There are weights at the end of its rounded handle to create a centre of gravity at the handle base. When you set it down, it stays put for a second and then springs back upright. Tumble-doll-brush!

Newspaper publisher Britt Reid moonlights as a masked crimefighter called The Green Hornet accompanied by his similarly masked valet, martial arts expert Kato.

Our present need for internet connectivity is so profound that secondary devices like the Nextep Computer are bound to happen. Developed to be worn as a bracelet, this computer concept is constructed out of a flexible OLED touchscreen. Earmarked for the year 2020, features like a holographic projector (for screen), pull-out extra keyboard panels and social networking compatibility, make the concept plausible. Ten years from now is not too far away, so how many of you think we’d be buying such gadgets?

Vuzzle Chair consists of 59 cushions dividing the complete cube into voronoi cells. Each cushion has neodymium magnet underneath its surface to secure its cohesive status with adjacent cushions. Polysurface-shaped cushions with magent in each surface will provide enough bonding constraint to perform as chair with flexibility, yet removing individual cushions from the whole can be done with small force.
By removing 13 cushions, the cube turns into chair shape. Separated cushions can be used as individual cushion or stool or footrest for the chair.
Vuzzle Milk and Vuzzle Bloody Mary are relatively easier to reassemble from the scratch compared to Vuzzle neat ”
FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

“First The Grey Album, then Girl Talk, and now this. Bi-coastal producer Jason Drake (a.k.a. Cassettes Won’t Listen) prepared this meeting of seemingly disparate musical entities between studio sessions for his forthcoming new full-length album, and is now unleashing Animal Ox, a meeting of Animal Collective and Cannibal Ox. Whether this is a “hipster’s wet dream” or not, the basis for the idea has interesting roots. To paraphrase the press release, Cannibal Ox’s 2001 album, The Cold Vein, was a highly influential release that launched both El-P’s group and label into the underground hip-hop spotlight when it came out. Hundreds of miles away at the same time, Animal Collective came together and started slowly climbing the ladder to indie stardom. Animal Ox joins the genre-defying nature of Animal Collective’s discography with Cannibal Ox’s singular opus in what Cassettes Won’t Listen hopes is a respectful and interesting way—he’s essentially paying homage to some of indie music’s most unparalleled icons.

Quote from cabestan-watches.ch-”Timepieces are normally created according to accepted codes of design,
following in the conceptual footsteps of centuries of watchmaking.
But once in a while someone dares to break with tradition.
Dares to see time from another dimension. Dares to create
an object that is more a work of fine mechanical art than a simple watch.
Where telling time is secondary to satisfying the human need for bold originality
yet with a harmonious balance and elegance that makes the object desired
by collectors around the world.
Where a timepiece becomes priceless because its future owner has been
involved in its conception and construction from the very beginning.
True luxury for true esthetes.
With this philosophy in mind, Jean-Francois Ruchonnet created the Cabestan.
A new universe of exclusive timepieces. A sensational vertical movement
made in our own manufacture in the Vallee de Joux
where Switzerland’s top watchmakers carefully produce each piece by hand.
