The Go Plate, Such A Stupid Idea It’s Simply Genius

The Go Plate, Such A Stupid Idea It's Simply Genius

Sometimes stupid things are decidedly brilliant.  This is one such invention.  Really stupid.  Really brilliant.  Designed to hold both your food and beverage while you file yourself a table or pleasant spot to fit – the Go Plate fits over any bottle, can, or drinking cup.  The only thing we’d recommend is not trying to take a swill from your beer while the plate is attached.  Available on Amazon.

The World’s Most Expensive Jell-O…Robot

The World's Most Expensive Jell-O...RobotWhile I’m inded home typing this after a 16 hour day, that isn’t a typo.  You’re really reading about the world’s most expensive Jell-O robot.  I also imagine this could have been titled “The World’s Only Jell-O Robot.”  It’s a marketing ploy.  And from a somewhat unlikely source.  In an effort to promote their new Xperia mobile phone, Sony has teamed with Bompas & Parr for some unlikely art inspired by director Wes Anderson’s Made of Imagination ads.The World's Most Expensive Jell-O...Robot

Bompas & Parr are no stranger to oddness.  They’ve created some other “edible oddities” – more notably a boating lake made from sweetener.  They’ve made some very expensive jellied robots and hidden them around the UK.  Why are they so expensive?  Besides being made of uber-expensive jelly, the ‘Xperiabots’ are stuffed with some random sillyness, to include golden “gears”, white truffle “valves”, and gemstones for eyes. They’re said to be worth just shy of $10,000 (about 6,000 pounds.)  Three were set loose about England waiting to be found.  Two have been claimed, one is still on the loose in Manchester as of this post.  The lucky folks who find them get to keep them.

It’s part of a larger campaign, where street art and posters shaped like the robots can be claimed for prizes.  The grand prize is clearly these expensive somewhat edible robots.  If you’re at all curious about the ad campaign you can check out the video that inspired it below.

Take Your Food Obsession To A New Level – Print a Postcard That Smells Like Your Meal

Take Your Food Obsession To A New Level - Print a Postcard That Smells Like Your MealTaking pictures of the meal you’re about to eat has become common occurrence. I’ve snapped plenty of pictures, either so I can try to recreate it later, crib an idea, or just make someone jealous. China-based Zhu Jingxuan, a student from Donghua University’s Fashion & Art Design Institute, has something that could take that quite a few steps further. She’s created a proof of concept device that both captures pictures and aromas of food and prints them on a postcard.

Take Your Food Obsession To A New Level - Print a Postcard That Smells Like Your MealThe ‘food printer’ melds camera, a smell extractor and printer. The camera takes the picture of the food – the smell extractor collects the smell – and the printer makes a postcard with aromatic ink. The food printer was created as part of Sony’s Student Design Workshop.Take Your Food Obsession To A New Level - Print a Postcard That Smells Like Your Meal

In an interview with China Daily Ms. Jingxuan said: “I spent several months designing it. What I completed was just an idea and draft sketch. Without the help of Sony’s designers, I could not have made the model.”

Pizza Cutter or Modern Art?

Pizza Cutter or Modern Art?

I’m pretty solidly in the camp of form follows function.  Make it work properly, then make it pretty.  If you’ve done your homework (think the original VW Beetle, the KitchenAid Mixer, or the original Braun shaver) things are gorgeous and they work better than anyone could have imagined.  I’m honestly not sure how the Rösle Pizza Wheel stacks up.  It looks like you could do some damage in hand to hand combat, that much is sure.  The innovative design has a free running roller blade, an ergonomic handle for safe use, and it comes apart for easy cleaning of pizza residue.
