The Chin Family by Alessi

ChinFamily.jpg

For their Spring/Summer collection 2007, Italian design firm Alessi collaborated with the National Palace Museum in Taiwan and created The Chin Family, a collection of Asian inspired kitchen utensils.

The collection, designed by Stefano Giovannoni and Rumiko Takeda, takes some of Giovannoni’s most famous designs, such as Cico the egg holder (one of my personal favorites) and Girotondo the kitchen timer, and gives them an oriental make-over.

Lekue lemon squeezer hinders temporary blindness

lekue-lemon-squeezer.jpg

My husband and I love a big bowl of pho (Vietnamese noodles) for dinner. He always gets the combination bowl, spends a few minutes preparing it with all the fresh herbs and sauces provided by the restaurant, and squeezes the lemon wedge in such a way that errant juice squirts straight into my eye. Even when I look away and he tries his best to avoid searing my eyeball with a piece of pulp, the heat-seeking lemon juice finds me.

That's why I'm heading over to LaPrima Shops to buy this two-piece set of Lekue Lemon Squeezers. Because $13 is a very small price to pay for eyesight preservation.

Also available at Amazon.

500GB LaCie Golden Disk external hard drive

lacie-golden-disk.jpg

LaCie's upcoming Golden Disk, which features a "liquid-motion" golden wave design courtesy of designer Ora-Ito, looks more like an upscale piece of cheesecake or creme brulee than a 500GB USB hard drive to me. Can't you envision some sort of elaborate sugar work, a dollop of whipped cream, and a fresh sprig of mint beside it?

Hmm. While we all wait until late October for the $189 fanless drive to become available, I'd better re-evaluate my Food Network viewing behavior.

Puzzle Wine Rack: Great geek gift

puzzle-wine.jpg

Are you a puzzler? With fall fast approaching, I can't help but begin to look forward to cold days where no one can accuse me of wasting time as I turn on my favorite jazz and set about pushing puzzle pieces together. Ah, but I digress. Puzzlers and wine aficionados alike will both love this unique Puzzle Wine Rack.

The unit can be placed in one or two orientations: the basic Puzzle or the symmetric. A single unit stores 9 bottles. Multiple units are easily assembled to create different rack sizes accommodating the needs of all users.

Price: $59.95 at Wrapables.com. Also available at Amazon.

Cell phone light charm flashes to signal calls

astro-charms.jpg

I work in an enviable Soho loft space. Honestly, it's cool, creative, collaborative space with zero privacy. No one person has an office, and our CEO has but one rule, "Keep your cell phones on vibrate!" Otherwise, he *playfully* threatens, he'll toss em' out the window (we're on the 10th floor). I've got the SIGNAL Adviser on my desk, but there are definitely other places where I'd like to keep an eye on when I'm getting a call. ThinkGeek has a light charm that you can attach to your phone for those moments when you're somewhere super noisy or somewhere super quiet. The light charm flashes when a call comes in, so you'll blink instead of bother:)

There are two fun styles that come in red, blue, and clear. (Only for use with 1800/1900 MHZ GSM mobile phone.)

Price: $11.99 at ThinkGeek.

Belkin "Hope" Cases for iPods - Support breast cancer research

hope-cases-belkin.jpg

Belkin is one of my favorite companies, and not just because of their excellent products, but also because of their social consciousness. They've just come out with 5 new pink-and-chocolate colored cases to help fund Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a network of breast cancer survivors and activists supporting cancer research. For each pink-and-chocolate colored case sold, Belkin will donate $2.50 to support Komen for the Cure (with a minimum guaranteed donation of $225,000).

These new cases add to Belkin’s existing “Hope” line of iPod cases for Komen for the Cure, Sport Armband for iPod nano and “Hope” Remix Metal for iPod in nano. The five new cases are available this month:

Pocket Blues for iPod nano - $24.99 (Pictured above)
Constructed of high-end denim material, includes carabiner, features functional, denim click-wheel protector

Happy Conception Day - Russians win prizes for having babies

conception.jpg

If you live in Ulyanovsk, Russia, you had the day off yesterday to celebrate Day of Conception, a holiday set aside for conceiving babies. No kidding - the goal is to procreate and give birth on June 12, 2008, Russia's Independence Day. Those who succeed win prizes, like brand new cars and appliances. I wonder if any cheating goes on (is there a run on Pitocin on June 12th)?

Read all about it on Revolution Health.

LG's YouTube Contest: Life is good when . . .

Get your gadgets for free! Now through November 10, 2007, you can submit a video to the YouTube/LG "Life is Good When"contest. The Grand Prize Package is worth over $18,000, but a slew of other wonderful goodies will be awarded to other winners, bringing the overall total to $30,000 (and, that's not shabby!).

LG wants you to show them what makes life good in 15-30 seconds. And, they want the entries to range from the absurdly hilarious (e.g. "Life is good when you're the first one to get the prize in the cereal box") to the warm-fuzzy ("Life is good when your pug snuggles you"). We'll all be invited to vote for our favorite videos beginning November 14, 2007.

This has to be the happiest contest we've ever seen. It's the kind of contest that just makes you feel the love! So, get lovin' and get winnin'!

Details at YouTube

Yoga goes hi-tech

yogo-mat.jpg

With the popularity of Yoga, it was only a matter of time before someone developed a technological mat marvel. With a built-in MP3 player and stereo speakers, you can listen to your new age music while twisting yourself into a pretzel. And the streaming video playback on the mat means you can see your instructors in any postion.

Still a concept, if this ever does come to the market, it should be wireless with Internet access. But I assume you're not supposed to watch YouTube? Answer your e-mail?

Darth Vader lamp

darth-vader-lamp.jpg

Seriously, how cool is this lamp? I’d say almost as cool as the Darth Vader projector alarm clock.

You can order the lamp from Collectors Gallery (currently sold out on Amazon) for $39.95 and the projector alarm clock from the Star Wars Shop for $29.99.
