This is a really cool idea and something I’m 100% behind. Unfortunately, this was more of a social movement for concept product than an actual product just yet.

However, there may be hope for one in the next few years: Project Ara from Google completed a prototype last month. It’s not much, but it is progress beyond “Let’s hope that these companies actually listen”

A Multi-Function Clip That Hides a Toolbox In Your Hair

Um yes!

I still want to bulk buy these and adonize  batch pink.

Apart from being super cool - which it definitely is - the serrated side cuts through braided rope, and though I haven’t seen it in person I’d be willing to bet money the smallest (“flat phillips”) screwdriver picks handcuffs.
Ladies, this is an escape tool.

I’ve now updated the link with the actual place you can purchase this. The “Trolley Coin” is for "shopping carts that take a coin ‘deposit’ to unlock." I don’t know any that does anywhere near where I live, but… I suppose it exists.

The Get More Out of Google Infographic Summarizes Online Research Tricks for Students
This Infographic is brilliant, perfect for any students needing to research. I knew about half of this before I found it, but it’s pretty damn useful.
Good luck and you’re welcome to all students returning to school this year.

For future reference.

Thank you.

For those who would ever need it. -C

reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

For Everyone who may need it, and even for those who don’t.

Return to Normality

For the past few weeks, I’ve been struggling to get by at work and with several issues at home. I’ve also managed to find several good lifehacks to test out or just queue, but never the time to actually get the well-researched and finished product out.

But I have at least 3 days, perhaps a week, before I start a new job. I quit my old job officially just now, so you guys should be in for a solid month of lifehacks.

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.
