An innovative German designer and bicycle maker called Silverback has created two new bikes which have built-in USB posts, meaning you can charge your devices up as you pedal.
The two bikes are part of the company's new city range called Starke and generate power as cyclists pedal through a dynamo hub mounted on the front wheel. This means the bikes can charge all kinds of products, like phones and MP3 players.

I'm not even a golfer but even I know the grip is key, so this SensorGlove would come in handy for all aspiring Tiger Woods. See, the glove has built-in sensors that constantly read the pressure of your grip. Practicing with SensoGlove apparently teaches you the correct grip pressure for a smooth, consistent swing that delivers greater distance, precision and of course, lower scores.
Apparently, it's important to maintain a light grip pressure instead of strangling the club (that would be me.) SensoGlove’s built-in digital computer actively monitors your grip with sensors placed strategically throughout the glove, providing instant feedback at all the points of your swing. The audio feedback warns you at the moment your grip becomes too tight, allowing you to learn and maintain correct grip pressure at every point of your swing. (No it doesn't yell at you the way your husband does when he's trying to teach you.)
A perfect gift for yourself if you want to learn, or as a holdiay gift. $89.99 at SensorGlove.

This comfy and glowing In Soft pillow designed by Takaaki Oguchi lights up when you touch it. However, it's specially designed to not get too hot so you don't need to get worried about the fabric heating up a little too much.

We love this label idea from Scott Amron, which acts as a regular sticker you'd find on your favourite fruit, but it also turns into soap when you wash it off. This is handy for making sure you're eating a clean apple and also means you don't have to mess around picking off the tacky residue you'd usually find after removing a label.

A humidifier may not be the most exciting product you can buy for your home, but we love this interesting new design from Minwoo Lee which turns a regular humidifier into a little alien-like creature.

We love this incredibly simple but effective laptop stand, called Prop, which is currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. Its slim design means it's really portable too and works with most 13 and 17 inch laptops.
For a pledge of $18 you can get your hands on a Prop.
