The clever guys at Germany-based company Heimplanet have brought to the market a tent which requires no poles to set up. The simple use of an air pump will have the tent up in a minute and the innovative design ensures that the tent won't blow away either.
We have to say the Grobal plant pot is pretty clever but then it would be having been designed by well-renowned product designer Karim Rashid. This unique watering system draws water and nutrients from a bottom reservoir into the top chamber, ideal for those with busy lives. Also good for holiday times saving people the hassle of organising plant sitters!
If you feeling like putting your signature style on egg-shaped objects then you may consider investing in the Eggbot. This innovative device syncs up with a computer to enable people to create bespoke designs on spherical items that are normally impossible to draw on. Items can range in size from a ping pong ball to the size of a grapefruit and using the freeware software, inkscape people can customise as they like in a range of colours. This is great for customising golf balls, bulbs, christmas baubles and naturally eggs of course! The Eggbot is sold through the outlet Evil Mad Science.
