Like I’ve said, I’m all for originality and innovation but I’m calling it like I see it… and this is some Stupid Shit!
Designer Robert Nightingal has created the Hitch, a belt with three giant suction cups for you to hitch a free ride on anything.
Straight from the designer’s mouth:
“For best results position yourself at traffic lights, railway stations or air hangers. Subtly wait for the opportune moment (which is precisely 7 seconds before the initial point of acceleration) and attach the product as firmly as possible to the host vehicle (a brief run up usually does the trick), paying attention to ground clearance for ones feet and enjoy the ride…”
To perk up your Monday…
EepyBird Production (the guys who started the Diet Coke & Mentos campaign) have now created The Sticky Note Experiments for OfficeMax to support their tagline “Life is beautiful. Work can be, too.” And I thought I was being creative when I temporarily hemmed my pants with binder clips!
The Sticky Note Experiments
I unfortunately can’t say that this is a mirror image of my work place but what I can say is that this type of thing happens in my head ALL THE TIME! (I just made sticky notes scary, didn’t I?)
BTW, ‘Post-Its’ sounds than “Sticky Note”.
Diesel XXX is throwing a massive 17-city party on Saturday, October 11th. But that’s not my point because well, who cares? What’s interesting is the short they created to promote it.

As if the Roomba wasn’t stupid enough, now there is a Muwi… basically a Roomba for your lawn.
The Muwi won the Bronze in the IDEA: Design Awards but come on… not only do you know this thing isn’t really going to work, but your neighbors will too when your lawn is all sorts of wonky. Besides, it might as well be screaming “steal me” because you know it is going to ganked by the neighborhood kids once you put it out on the lawn… unless you stand outside guarding it, which is also stupid.
The way I see it, it only has two redeeming qualities:
- It produces awesome grass patties that look like felted frisbees (which the designer suggests can be used to make a chair… huh?).
- It slightly resembles the coveted Clocky alarm clock.
Designed by Yong Hee Cho, Yuli Sung, Jee Won Lee and Seung Hee Son.
Check out these stone ice cubes made of Nordic Rock. Nordic rock is mined from ancient Swedish pollution-free base rock. It is supposedly the purest way of cooling your drink because stones don’t melt which means your beverage wont get diluted with potentially unclean water. Dont you agree they look pretty hardcore… although eerily similar to a sugar cube of pumice stone? (Ew… sorry for that visual) If that wasn’t enough, they are also reusable which makes them all eco-friendly ‘n shit… so whats not to love?
