If like us you have far too many Apple products, then the PlugBug is for you. The cute red and white gadget allows you to charge two devices from one charger, instead of carrying all of them around with you.
Available from twelve south for $34.99.
If you're fascinated by the thought of bee-keeping but live in the city, then Philips may have an innovative new solution for you, the Urban Beehive concept.
It may look like some kind of pod from Alien, but in actual fact the slick and futuristic device is a beehive, specially designed for urban living, with honeycomb layers and a smoke system to calm the bees down before you open the casing.
You can't keep bees in every state unfortunately, but if you're a New Yorker, it's legal and you can even attend special classes to learn how to do it properly!

We love this very clever hanging tent design, created specially with rock climbers in mind. It's obviously incredibly strong and safe, but we'd still feel a bit uncomfortable falling asleep in it in case something somewhere snapped... Still, it's a beautiful and simple design.

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.
Visit the Silverback website for more info.
We love the design of this surfboard case meets tent called the Wave Cave. It's specially made to allow surf lovers to store up to four boards and then gives them a cosy little beach haven too.
Available from Wave Cave Surf.
We love this design concept from trio Eunha Seo, Junse Kim and Yonggu Do, which merges a cell phone and a tablet into one in the form of The Part.
Why buy two devices when you could have both together anyway?!

At the Hotel Kakslauttanen in Finland there's an incredible igloo village, which allows guests to watch the Northern Lights from the comfort of one of 20 glass igloos. They're specially designed to repel frost and are made from thermal glass.
If you don't fancy snuggling up in an igloo, then why not visit the hotel's snow chapel, ice bar or smoke sauna. We can't think of a better winter holiday!

We're not sure how often you REALLY need a ruler when you're out and about, but these Cardsticks still seem like a very clever idea. Attach the stickers to any card and turn it into a ruler you can take anywhere with you.
Available from TheCardstick for $3.99 (for three different colours).

We love seeing rubbish being put to good use and not just thrown into a landfill. So we were excited to see lots of old coffee cups and spoons being made into giant light features that were created by Swiss designer Christian DuCharme and are currently being displayed at the Layafette Espresso Bar and Market in New York.
