I live on the big one in the middle (Starship Earth)

Starship Earth from National GeographicHere’s a fun little product from the people at National Geographic.

Sure, you know which sphere you stand/sit/sleep on, on a daily basis, but you’ve also got to think,, hmm, where am I really?

This is cool for the kids.

Why, you ask?

Because think of all that explanations of astronomical units, distances, and spatial relations.  Now you can show kids, (and friends too) just where we are, what we’re looking at, and a tiny glimpse, at what else is out there.

(I know it’s a tad spendy at $450, but come on,, we live here!)

Ironing board design makes daily chores hi-tech

Liika BoardLiika board 2

We found out about this thanks to Yanko Design, the Liika, an ironing board that can fit just about anywhere and iron from any angle.

Home Interior student Tony Zakrajsek received a 2006 Nienkamper Award for his thesis about a boomerang shaped ironing board using reticulating tripod fitted with large, pivoting suction cups. This feature not only allows it to either stand on it’s own, but can also be secured to any non porous surface. Not only does this allow for doing your ironing just about anywhere, but it also provides for flexible and comfortable height adjustment that conventional ironing boards don’t provide enough of. If you’re a tall person, you will understand what that means.

iTrainer helps with your golf swing

itrainer.jpgYou can never achieve the perfect golf swing despite facts pointing otherwise in theory. Just ask Tiger Woods – even when he’s playing in a totally different person compared to his peers, he still has not achieved the perfect swing under all conditions. If you’re an avid fan of golf and want to make a quick impact in your game by learning through your mistakes in earnest, the iTrainer Golf system could be just the ticket. In a nutshell, the iTrainer is a sophisticated system that uses 3D sensors to measure all the key aspects within your swing thanks to a Bluetooth module attached to the club, comparing those results to an optimum swing profile while providing instantaneous feedback through a wireless headset.
