Students from the Arizona State University’s College of Design have an unusually odd design with the “Go With The Flow” toilet. It functions like a squat toilet, and can tone up the abdominal and back muscles (yeah, that’s the yoga connection). There’s a hint of environment friendliness as well; it uses less water for flushing and can reuse water from hand washing.

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.
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.

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.
