Working for your treats

candygrabber.jpg

Here's a way to pace the eating of your Halloween candy (because we all have it whether we admit it or not). The mini-Candy Grabber is a home version of the arcade game found in amusement parks and supermarkets. However, instead of toys, this version is filled with candy. Place a fake coin into the machine, and you have 75 seconds to pick up a piece of candy and drop it into the shoot. The controls are, in fact, fairly complex, as it comes with three joysticks to maneuver the claw. Your edible prize will certainly taste better after working for it. The mini-Candy Grabber is one of those rare toys that has both kid and adult appeal.

The Candy Grabber is available at I Want One Of Those for 17.95 (US$33.20.)

Handy Bands: rubber undies

underwearbands.jpg

These rubber undies add a little spice and organization to that sad little cubicle or cluttered home office. There's no great new and amazing technology behind the Handy Bands, but it sure is cute to take such a common office staple and give it an unexpected twist. Novelty driven design-o-philes, I'm sure, will be all over the cheerful yet restrained palette and will especially like the way these rubber bands impart a sense of fun through sharp attention to detail. Handy Bands are the type of non-essential item that people generally don't buy for themselves, but I'm sure they would make an appreciated add-on or little surprise as a gift to a friend. I know I'd be totally tickled if somebody picked these up for me. And they sure beat using bland old beige colorless rubber bands.

Prada ASUS S6F limited edition pink leather laptop

Asus_S6F_pink.jpg

Almost a year ago several sites reported on a limited edition Prada notebook that was set to be released "sometime in 2006." That time is soon as Cnet Asia has the confirmation that the notebooks will be available for the Christmas season. The $2,500 Asus S6F 3.3lb ultraportable is still available with tricked out leather lid and palmrests in light and dark cowhide; but Prada has outdone themselves by speccing a pink leather for their limited release of 50 machines.

On initial release the light cowhide version of the S6F was well accepted by most, and extremely well received by some. Most reviewers admit that the $400 leather upgrade package is mainly for impressing collegues, and expressed common concerns over how the leather would weather daily wear and tear.

The hardware specs on the S6F are respectable for an ultraportable machine. The glass is an 11.1" WXGA widescreen display at 1366x768 running off an onboard Intel 950. The processor is a 1.66 GHz Core Duo with a ceiling of two gigs of DDR2 RAM. Other amenities include a 120 gig hard drive, a DVD burner, integrated wifi, gigabit ethernet, and a 4-in-1 memory card reader. The laptop weighs a little over three pounds, but the downside is that battery life is only a shade over two hours.

Glider Mouse

glider-mouse.jpg

What is it, you ask? It's a mouse of course -- the new Hela's Glider Mouse which looks so peculiar because it's designed ergonomically.

The central mouse position gives you an optimal working posture and suppossedly eliminates the "painful motion of repeatedly having to reach out for the mouse next to the keyboard." It works with both standard and small size keyboards and laptops, and is good for righties or lefties. The "glider" moves effortlessly across the pad, and even though the "advanced user" can configure the mouse using 12 switches for customized programming, it doesn't require any extra drivers or software.

At �150 , it's still cheaper than computer claw. Buy at Helga Co..

Ouch, you just made me reach for the mouse!

Thirteen years after its inception, the Dutch design collective Droog has organized a show of its innovation work which has arrived at New York's Museum of Arts & Design, after making its way through Europe.

Founded by Gijs Bakker and Renny Ramakers, Droog collaborates with a diverse body of designers to create masterful products, such as their famous Milk Bottle Lamps, using low-cost industrial, as well as recycled, materials. The results are simple products made with environmentally sound principles. The show entitled "Simply Droog" presents furniture, lighting, household items, from Droog's collection of projects.

The Milk Bottle Lamp can be purchased at Plushpod for $139.

Simply Droog runs from September 21, 2006 through January 14, 2007.

LEVertigo vertical laptop bag

vertigo_kakee_front.jpg

I recently switched to a laptop bag that holds my laptop in a vertical position rather than the more common horizontal position, and I swear it's much more comfortable, though I have no idea why. Lately, I've seen more vertical bags on the market, like this LEVertigo bag from Be.ez (manufacturer of multimedia accessories in Europe and Asia). A few new colors have recently been added to this collection, like this "Kakee" one. It fits laptops up to 15.4". I love the bright interior color and the large front opening -- I imagine both features are designed with visibility and easy access in mind. Unfortunately, it appears that there are no distributors yet in the U.S.

Dog Sleeping Bag

Dog_SleepOverBag_Blue.jpg


This doggie sleeping bag provides pooches with a reversible training blanket (pee-resistant, in other words) and a cozy inside for burrowing into. Most importantly, it gives them their own blankie for sleepovers, visits to the kennel, your parents', or just a sleep-over party with the neighborhood pups.

Ventilation holes improve air circulation, and it can unzip to lie flat, with that lovely recognizable scent of home, dander, and dog hair mixed in with the aromas of past bones. Yummy.

When not in use, the bag rolls up for easy storage and transportation. Also available in pink.
Awwww....

At Bamboo Pets.
