No matter how hard you try to diet, a moment of weakness will see you staring at a high calorie drink. Try sipping that drink with the LED Screaming Skull Straw, with each sip, the straw will flash and scream. A persistent reminder to stay on course, that is if you don’t break it first. If you need to carry along a freaky straw for a reminder, you probably shouldn’t be on a diet anyway. It costs $5.
A Chinese hairdresser Huang Xin used hair collected in his shop to build a model of the Tian’anmen Gate Tower in Tian’anmen Square. A hairdresser for 10 years, the man prefered womens’ hair for his models because they are softer. The model used 11 kilos of hair. He seems to enjoy making these models, made of hair glued on to paper; to his credit is also a model of the Birds’ Nest stadium and some toys, all built of hair.

The “House on The Table” design by Soojin Hyun is innovative and intriguing. Four walls and a roof atop a table give it the appearance of a house, it also allows for some sort of privacy. If there are a number of these houses in an office, it will take on the appearance of a small city. Which is all cool, except that it comes at a huge cost, that of pragmatism. It is being manufactured by Michel dickhaut.
The classic Donkey Kong has found way to the iPhone and iPodTouch. Only, it’s called iDonkeyKong there. It appears that the app doesn’t have any approval from Nintendo, the creators of the original. Surprising that it passed through Apple’s screening. It costs $0.99 and chances are, it won’t stay at the store for long. Get one while you can!

Alistair Gibson spent a lot of years working on race cars, now that he’s retired, he is busy creating “art.” He has created motorsport inspired fish sculptures, many of them created using parts from race-winning cars. The sculptures made of F1 chassis parts and carbon fiber have an interesting air about them, and probably cost an arm and a leg.
Gone are the days when clocks were made for people to be on time because Sander Mulder has created a wonderful clock, with a very innovative design. This clock rolls around your desk and you have full spellings or rather a full sentence to read the hours. Though it doesn’t give you the accurate time (it doesn’t explicitly show minutes) you can make a pretty close assumption. Have it on your desk and see time simply roll around.
