Cool Stuff Time!

Posted by: Andee / Category:

I love unique things. It's really fun to have company over and have them think, "What the hell is that?" or "What does that do?" Here are some amazing products and places to visit I found over the past week that I found interesting. Hope you like 'em.

The Ripple faucet creates a new, fun way to interact with water. Drawing inspiration from surface ripples, the faucet creates a strong visual relationship between the two. On top of the frosted ripple surface sits a metal ball. An array of electromagnetic sensors detects that ball’s position. Moving the ball in or out from the center controls water pressure. Moving it around controls temperature.

The surface glows red or blue to denote how hot or cold it is. The two separate channels combine the hot and cold water to get the perfect mix. Don’t worry about scalding yourself tho. The water in the hot water channel isn’t actually hot until it’s ready to be mixed via flash heating.

This is one dining room I would love to be in!
Like frogs sitting on lily pads, so goes the experience when visiting the “Blue Frog Lounge” in Mumbai, India. Architectural firm Serie, have created an entertainment space that is both attractive and stand-offish at the same time, mirroring its patrons casual chic attitudes. For unobstructed people and performer watching, staggered heights and angled booths atop a glowing blue lake of light, give the impression of floating in a warm lake under the spring moonlight, waiting for the mating ritual to begin. Notable features include dimpled walls for acoustic enhancement and several recording studios just in case you’re not convinced they are serious about music. A combination music venue / restaurant / lounge, this converted warehouse space shoots for cool credentials like Johnny Depp avoiding the paparazzi at the Oscars. I appreciate the idea, but still…


Check out these awesome magnetic curtains! How cool is that?
Embedding hundreds of evenly dispersed tiny magnets into a grid of prefab folds allows for the easy manipulation of the silhouette or strategically modifying exposure for light and/or privacy.

    Wow, those magnetic curtains are cool -- very geometric! I should get some -- they would really impress all of my husband's math professor friends when they visit us. :D

    They are so awesome, and awesomely expensive as well. I hope to win the lottery one day and celebrate with a shopping spree.
