if you thought you have already possess all the coolest stuff in the world, think again. you might be missing this: a nail clipper. what do expect of a nail clipper? its just a tool that cuts nails, isn’t it? but apparently Klnip doesn’t think clipping nails is that simple and hence, the Klhip The Ultimate Clipper was born.

first off, it looks nothing like a conventional nail clipper. but hey. that’s the whole idea. the clipper is made of surgical stainless steel finished in natural satin and unlike standard nail clippers, it has only has one blade. apparently, double blades will dull each other (the blades) out over time or tear the nail. Klhip claimed that the cut will be so smooth that filing will your nails might a thing of the past. on top of that, the smooth clipping action will keep the clippings on-board instead of flying everywhere else.

the clipper is designed with “reverse engineering” (check out the photos), hence you are applying pressure above the nail you’re cutting which results in a more comfortable grip, and makes clipping easy. well, i am not sure if i agree with that. do we really need to reinvent the wheel (paying US$50 for that), even for clipping nails?

what you see here is a cushion and it is also a six-in-one remote control. i am not kidding you. this is not just a cushion with remote control layout stitched to it. it is a real working remote control. an ultimate statement of lifestyle fused with technology, the Pillow Remote Control has databases of over 500 remote control devices.

it also featured a auto shutoff function that power down the remote after 60 seconds of inactivity. this wide-range transmitter with infrared LED built-in requires two AAA batteries with is not included. i guess you won’t be misplacing your remote with this cuddly cushion due to its size and it will definitely feel “at home” with the rest of its non-remote control fellow cushions.

if you are looking for a tangle-free earphones, and you need something more than just fabric cords then Zipbuds by DGA could be it. the highlight of the Zipbuds is the tangle resistant zipper integrated cable. tangle-free? makes sense to us, cos’ we can’t really tangle a zipper, can we?

while it may seems quite bulky looking (as compared to traditional cord), but the concept of zipper makes it a style-statement. the zipper portion only runs up to a few inches before the noise-isolating stubbed ear buds, so you won’t look ridiculous wearing it. other features of the Zipbuds include Dupont Kevlar reinforced cabling, braided nylon cable, gold plated audio jack, 8mm driver with a rated output of 2mW (max input: 5mW).

the Zipbuds come in 5 different color and includes three custom fitted ear tip sizes, two sport ear clips and a storage pouch. pretty neat huh? just don’t confuse with your jacket’s zipper.

i thought the Zipbuds is suitable for those who’s looking for tangle-free earbuds and at the same time, doing it with style.
