MÜV Chair Keeps You Moving So You Won’t Be Killed By Sitting All Day Long

Sitting is awesome, but as it turns out, sitting kills more people than we care know. Sounds like a scary prospect, especially for a person like me who stay seated for hours on end. I guess sitting is an example of too much of a good thing. That said, if you jobs require to sit all-day long, then maybe it is wise to act on it before it harm your health (speaking to myself actually). With that goal in mind, you can do a few things: set a schedule to stand up and move a bit (stretch or whatnot), sit on a yoga ball, or you could just get the MÜV Chair. MÜV Chair is the brainchild of brilliant minds over at Zero5 Innovations and while it may looks rather run-of-the-mill, it is actually anything but.

A.R. Globe Makes Learning About The World Fun And Interactive For Kids

Digital age has relegate the good’ol globe to decorative piece. I mean, who the hell need a physical globe when Google Earth is just a few clicks away? But that’s for information hungry grownups. As for kids, learning from Google Earth about the Earth itself won’t be much of a fun. Learning is different from digging for information. Learning is what kids do, and it should be fun, and this is where PlayShifu wants to do with Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe. Even a grown man like me gets excited about a mash up of a physical globe and AR (which is essentially what the Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe is really about). Continue reading A.R.

Ti Bar – An Uber Stylish Toothbrush Holder For Home And On-The-Road

Unless your idea of luxury is to have a golden throne or one embellished with countless Swarovski crystals, bathroom isn’t quite a place to call luxury, but if you really want to up your bathroom’s ante in the luxe department without splurging tens of thousands on an exquisite throne, then may I suggest the Turtle Ti Bar Titanium Dental Essential Holder.

Wheel – The Turntable That Is So Minimal That It Is Just, Well, A Wheel

Thanks to the continual love shown by people, vinyl records have risen to rub shoulders with its digital counterpart and the love given to it by music lovers has also lead to inventive folks coming out with brilliant turntables, or as some would call it, record players. To this end, we have seen quite a bit of them in recent years, including ‘audacious’ propositions like stylus-spins-record-static examples like the RokBlok and the app-enabled Love Intelligent Turntable, and even ‘floating’ turnable like the vertical turntable and even one that levitates, but nothing appears to be more surreal than one that’s so minimal that it is just, well, a wheel.
