High Fidelity Bed Canopy

Enjoy the comfort of your bed like never before. Featuring a full computer system, game console, reading lights, projection screen, and more, this bed canopy is tailored to suit all of your comfort and entertainment needs. Sold on HiCan.

Surprisingly this one is real, and not just concept art. Getting it is enormously difficult, both financially and the actual ordering of it. Once you enter the HiCan site, just under the logo in tiny print is a link titled “order.” Click that and fill out your information to get a brochure and further instructions to actually order this. The site hasn’t been updated since 2012 and they “say” they have a waitlist, but I’m not sure if that is still accurate.

It also cost 42,000 Euros, (at the moment $56408.52) just for the actual product. That does NOT include shipping, taxation, nor installation costs. The offices are in Italy, and the two stores are in London and Miami Florida, according to the site, but I have been unable to turn up anything that suggests they are still in the location stated.

we don’t usually reblog/post cosplay stuff, but a friend pointed it out to me and i haven’t seen it elsewhere SO maybe it can help someone!

Useful for cosplay AND if you’re applying for a job that views tattoos as ‘unprofessional’. 

Everyone’s basically summed up all the benefits in the posts above, so I really don’t have much more to say.

This is a very good packing mechanism, and as has been noted by others, good for packing outfits. Tee shirts, underwear and socks carefully folded into a single roll. It would work less with the shorter socks, but still is pretty effective for planning an outfit.
This is good for work outfits, packing travel bags for short trips or for long trips.

AmoeBAND became a 2012 IDEA Award Finalist by innovating every possible aspect of the plaster (band aid).

The design revisions were:

- Strategic cut-outs shape to fit fingers in such a way that it is easy to bend them and not disrupt the bandage.

- An intelligent dressing material allows you to regularly check wounds from the outside, without upsetting the healing process.“According to research, the when an infection of a wound is detected, the pH value is between 6.5 and 8.5. AmoeBAND’s indicator cross turns purple, alerting the user needs to change it immediately.

- Since the bandage material used exudes a leather-like feel, availability in different skin-tones helps it blend in, without overly highlighting the injury.

- The packaging has been redesigned to a matchbox style and includes Braille instructions.

I forgot about this one until it was resubmitted, but like other Dream Products, it’s only a concept. Even above, it says IDEA AWARD finalist, and nothing on the internet has been posted about it since 2012. They haven’t come out with it yet.

If they did, I’d put 3-6 of them in any emergency kit I designed.

*The beginning of the Dream Product Line*
The Node Space Outlet.
Basically bills itself as a new type of outlet that eliminates the need for a power strip. Just plug in anywhere along the square.
This is a concept idea from a Japanese company called Metaphys (Hit Google Translate if you can’t read it). So it’s not for sale because it doesn’t exist yet. It seems pretty risky of a product too, considering you could jam what looks like 12 to 16 plugs in maximum, and that’s just asking for a blown fuse.

I realize that as of late, I haven’t been able to keep on track for my schedule, since working and several real life issues keep popping up, so here’s a bonus hack I’ve been meaning to find for myself again. The titular man guiding us on our journey of tying our shoes in the best fashion in Misha Collins, who plays Castiel from Supernatural.

In any case, this is a pretty good solution, since the other two methods have led to frayed or frequently untied shoes at work and in real life.

The past few weeks, I’ve been planning on reblogging/ compiling the MOST useful lifehacks (the creme de le creme, as it were). This was one of them, since it’s made work a lot easier.

But I have a glowing testimony and addition to this from my girlfriend who is in Europe for vacation.

  • After two days of nonstop walking, she taught this knot to several people and shoelace problems pretty much dried up. 
  • She recommends this knot for Bikini’s as well, as it made beachgoing much easier. The bikini held up all day.

"Use Deodorant before bed for maximum effectiveness."
This one I was a little skeptical of, but the logic checks out. When you go to bed, your body temperature is cooler, so you’re sweating less. This allows the antiperspirant to seep into the pores and clog them. This also signals to the body to stop perspiring, which can make the effects last up to 24 hours, even if you shower the next morning. Despite how clogging the sweat ducts sounds unhealthy, according to health experts consulted it is not. 
I’d say put the antiperspirant on the night before, and preferred smelling one (if you have one) on in the morning. And as always, use spray deodorant with restraint, no one loves smelling noxious chemicals in overdose when they get into a crowded area with you.

This guide explains benefits and uses of each in case you get confused about a couple, but one of the comments included another item I think is important: Emergency Cash. Drop a $20 or $50 in case of needing food, a cab ride, whatever.
