The 7-Foot Upside-Down Pre-Lit Christmas Tree

The 7-Foot Upside-Down Pre-Lit Christmas Tree
Evoking a 12th century Central European tradition of hanging a tree from the ceiling at Christmas, this unique 7' pre-lit fir is inverted to ensure a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas, and allowing more room for the accumulation of presents underneath. Originally designed for specialty stores to display delicate ornaments using a minimum of floor space, the unusual tapering shape allows the tree to stand in places that do not accommodate a traditional holiday tree, such as between two armchairs or in a corner. The trees weighted base provides extra stability to prevent tipping and leaning, and it has 3,700 Read more

Stereo Squealers

The Stereo Squealers are gorgeous cartoon-esque battery operated piggy speakers and will oink out your favourite tunes from iPods, PCs and laptops through a 3.5mm head phone socket. The pigs deliver an impressive 1.6 watts per speaker of good quality sound performance and are powered by 4 x AAA batteries. They are not just speakers, these pigs have a built-in FM radio with an autoscan function. Adding to their quirkiness the volume is controlled through the tail of one of the pigs.
These hip little squealers are perfect for teenagers and the kid inside every adult that are after something a little different. They add some fun, colour and a great vibe to any environment. With a clear quality sound, a cool and funky look, these little porkers are a must have technology accessory. More

A solar film bikini that charges your iPod! (With a USB connection!)

The suit is a standard medium-sized bikini swimsuit retrofitted with 1" x 4" photovoltaic film strips sewn together in series with conductive thread. The cells terminate in a 5 volt regulator into a female USB connection

Don't worry guys! The male version of the Solar Bikini (coming soon) called the iDrink, features a greater surface area which equals more output voltage. This additional juice is used to power a 1.5 amp peltier junction which cools a single beer in a custom coozy. Double cool!

The iDrink solar swimware line is perfect for those who want to go the beach, listen to music, and enjoy a cold and deserved beverage, but who don't want to get wet! You've got tunes, you've got beer, you've got sun, and you've got eachother in swimwear. The rest is up to you.

Recessed into an urinal with video game.

Recessed into a urinal is a pressure-sensitive display screen. When the guest uses it, he triggers an interactive game, producing images and sound. The reduced size of the “target” improves restroom hygiene and saves on cleanings costs (like the “fly in the urinal” at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport). It also makes a trip to the urinal “fun and games” – more than just a necessary nuisance. By projecting the game experience into the public space, viewers are treated to a new way of visualizing the abstract, and the entertainment value is boosted. The projection of the project into a museum space was conceived of as a critical-ironic measure, questioning the concept of art, but extending it at the same time. “On target” is an interactive installation with the functional purpose of improving hygiene.
