Hot liquid indicator lets you know when to sip lightly

Smart Lid System People get pretty trigger-happy when it comes to suing companies for their own clumsiness and spilling hot beverages on their laps. Now Smart Lid Systems has created a nifty little “gadget” of sorts that make it obvious when the drink is hot.

Just pour in the hot beverage (coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, etc), snap on the lid, and immediately see the color change from a dull brown to a bright red color.

The rim of the lid even stays brown to work as an indicator of if you have the lid fully attached. Genius!

The lid has multiple patents and has won a few different food related awards for their product.

Hopefully in the next couple of years we’ll see this technology becoming more common!

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Doggie and Kitty Staple Free Staplers

Whether you are 5 or 50, these staple-free-staplers are just snazzy. Sure they’re a bit on the “kiddy” side, but until they come out with something super manly you’ll just have to make do with a pastel purple plastic dog on your desk. UPDATE: James kindly pointed out that there is indeed a manly version available.

These little “staplers” actually don’t use a single staple at all to hold your papers together. They cut a small flap and notch in your paper which keeps them together without you having to worry about accidently getting tiny piece of metal jabbed into your finger. No, that’s never happened to me.

ThinkGeek has these little gadgets in their store for only $7.99 a pop.

Bakers Edge – Brownies for edge lovers

Bakers Edge Brownie Pan

Lovers of goodies like brownies can usually be divided into two camps…those who love the center and those who love the edges.

I personally am a center lover. Suer there are usually only one or two squares that are nothing but pure goodness in the middle, but for me they are the best.

I’m well aware that there are people who prefer the chewy edges (or crispy in some cases) and the folks at Bakers Edge have made a pan that caters to just those people.

The Bakers Edge Brownie Pan is an ingenious creation that makes sure every brownie has at least 2 sides of edgy goodness. It’s definitely one of those things where you punch your self in the face saying “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”

Rumor has it that they have other similar products in the works for other foods such as lasagna.

A single pan will set you back $34.
