What looks like a window looking through to a man drawing on a clock face, is in fact a LCD screen... I suspect he might of done some good old fashioned IPD fakery and is in the clock box...

I'm not sure if this is the 'coolest clock ever' but my god it is pretty damn smart! I wonder how many takes it took?


This table cloth turns a negative situation into a positive experience when a drink is spilled. The pattern is revealed only when a spillage occurs and from the looks of the video, the cloth absorbs the liquid too.

I find this nice as not only does it allow you to continue your meal uninterrupted, it makes having a table cloth worth while and interesting to own. (I must point out that i am usually a table cloth hater) I applaud this woman!!

Now this is an impressive shelving i find to be nice! What a fantastic idea to make something so average not so average. I really like the pattern's clean cut lines and how the blue does not cover the edges adding depth to the pattern.

Vancouver 2010 Olympic medals

I'm really impressed with Omer Arbel and Corrine Hunt's design for the 2010 Olympic medals in Vancouver:

All the medals are unique and different from one another but share an image from the same piece of art. I like this as it creates a bigger picture and makes the medals far more rewarding than a mass produced coin.

What impresses me the most is that all the medals are made from e-waste. The quality they got by recycling parts of computers and mobile phones is inspiring.

There is a great video on Core77's blogger page describing this further.
