You can remember using a typewriter if you’re of a certain age. And while many don’t miss having to start all over again after making a tiny mistake, there is something to be said about the sound of keys clicking away.
This nostalgia probably led to this designer creating an amazing fusion of old and new technology — the typewriter attachment for an IPad. You’ll feel like you’re working on an amazing novel as you click away on this vintage-inspired keyboard.
This Gnome Has a Naughty Surprise!
Once limited to gardens and fairy tales, these gnomes have a new job — ensuring your houseplants are adequately watered. It turns out that these little gnome-shaped statues actually serve as self-watering planter inserts — delivering the perfect amount of water to the roots of your plants.
Plant owners can fill the gnome with water, which is later released through a very peculiar hole in a surprising place (we'll let you use your imagination to guess where the hole is). Cute and useful!
Snazzy-Looking Smart Glasses
For many of us, the idea of "smart" glasses that can be paired to your phone conjures up images of something out of a sci-fi film. But if you thought these futuristic features couldn't be fashionable, think again.
Vue glasses look like real designer glasses that you would see in a fashion magazine. An added bonus is that they can be synced up to your smartphone and allow you to play music and answer calls while looking (and feeling) like regular eyeglasses! Who would have thought?
Enjoy Rainstorms as a Couple!
When you're single, it may seem like everything is meant for couples. From tandem bicycles to fancy desserts, some things seem just designed for two. Just in case you need to add one more item to that list, this umbrella is designed for couples who like to spend time together in the rain.
This cleverly-designed item keeps both partners dry simultaneously, allowing you to keep dry while still being romantic. We can see this being a funny gift for a newlywed couple!
That's (S)not Funny
In addition to being creative geniuses, many designers actually have quite a sense of humor — like this designer who created a soap dispenser shaped like a nose. As the person presses on the nose, soap is released from the soap dispenser's nostril-shaped opening.
While we find this quite disgusting (especially considering the texture of liquid hand soap coming out of a nose), we can imagine some immature people would love to have this gross bathroom accessory!
