Make Babies believe that they are being loved - The Baby Pillow

I am of course kidding with that title!

You know the drill. You're putting your little one in his crib. He's asleep - or ALMOST asleep - and you're gently stroking his stomach or patting his bottom. You slowly stroke his tummy with your hand and rest your hand gently on his body until you feel the gentle breathing of him sleepingThenŅyou move your hand ever so slightly, trying to move as slowly as possible so that you don't wake your sleeping angel, and suddenly - no matter how slowly or carefully you move -- wail!!! He wakes up

If you've ever wished for a "hand" to leave behind so that your baby would feel as if you've never left the room, your prayers have been answered with the Zaky.

One room self contained mini hotel - Everland in Leipzig


AWESOME - Who spends me a night there? Anyone Please - This would be the perfect location for one of my actor photo shootings! Any Sponsors? In house cable, wi-fi, deluxe bathroom, lavish breakfasts and even a mini cooper on loan with parking.

A one-room hotel with a concierge? At an art institution?

Breakfast in your room? Towels that are supposed to be stolen by the guests?

A fully stocked mini-bar that is included in the price and just waiting to be emptied?

At the end of May 2006 the Hotel Everland will be set up on the roof of the Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst for one year. The first guests can move in starting on June 2. The location on top of the villa guarantees a spectacular view of the park and the surrounding houses in the music district. However, it isn't just the location of the hotel and the art institution (which for its part, enjoys a unique status in Germany’s eastern states) that are remarkable, but the hotel itself and its services.

The one-room hotel boasts a lounge with an enormous picture window, a double bed and a luxurious bathroom. Hotel Everland stands for the desire for something extraordinary, for a place that is removed from connections to the daily routine. The interior and the exterior of the hotel are clearly custom-made. In this way, the unique object fulfils on the one hand all the benchmarks for a piece of art, including the longing to step outside of the daily routine. On the other hand, this experience must be paid for. Art is no longer an ideal/idealised sphere; it is part of the logic of economic utilisation. Contrary to this logic, irritations have also been incorporated, because economic utilisation also carries irrational aspects with it. A one-room hotel doesn’t make financial sense: the operating costs and the revenues are blatantly disproportionate. Furthermore, the wish for exclusivity is in direct contradiction to the possibility that large groups will visit the hotel during the opening hours of the GfZK. This will virtually place the desire for exclusivity on display.

Hotel Everland was created by the Swiss artist duo Sabina Lang & Daniel Baumann as an art project for the Swiss Expo.02. In 2002, the hotel enjoyed a torrent of interest in Yverdon on Lake Neuchâtel. After Leipzig, the Everland will move on and be reconstructed in Paris.

The On- & Offline Dude for IM

The On- & Offline Dude for IM

Availabot is a physical representation of presence in Instant Messenger applications. Availabot plugs into your computer by USB, stands to attention when your chat buddy comes online, and falls down when they go away. It’s a presence-aware, peripheral-vision USB toy… and because the puppets are made in small numbers on a rapid-prototyping machine, it can look just like you.

Watch the video, it's cute!

Make sweet love in this transparent Canoe-Kayak

Transparent Canoe-Kayak

When you are an exhibisionist, this is perfect for you - All these eyes on you...

This kayak-canoe hybrid has a transparent polymer hull that offers paddlers an underwater vista of aquatic wildlife and waterscapes unavailable in conventional boats. Seating two people, the sturdy canoe hull is made of the same durable material found in the cockpit canopies of supersonic fighter jets.

Easy to maneuver, the wide canoe displaces a greater amount of water for more surface stability, and the paddlers sit lower to the deck, resulting in better balance. Adjustable seats allow paddlers of different heights to personalize their leg room.

Flying car by 2009?

Flying CarA human's dream come true - fly & drive.

The Transition is a Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) designed to make general aviation more practical for personal transportation. This increased practicality is accomplished by enabling the promise of a true integrated roadable aircraft at an economically compelling price. The Transition will be capable of driving at normal highway speeds, flying at speeds that approach the light sport aircraft limit, and parking in a standard garage. The freedom enabled by this aircraft will fundamentally increase the personal mobility of its owners while simultaneously improving the safety and practicality of GA travel.

Cool Jewels - Diamonds aren't forever


It;s so hot right now here in Berlin - I would not mind sitting in a bath tub filled with those jewels and feel all fancy and stuff.

Even if you don't fancy putting them in your drinks, Cool Jewels are highly entertaining in any party scenario. Hold one by your ear and you can pretend you're David Beckham. Hold one by both ears and you can pretend you're J-Lo. Or Pat Butcher. The choice is yours. You can also impress members of the opposite sex by making out you're a debonair cat burglar knocking off mansions in Monaco and hiding your gleaming haul in the fridge of your innocuous semi. If you want.
