Apple Jacket – Keep your apples safe

Apple Jacket
Apples make great snacks. When you’re on the go they can be an easy snack to carry around in your backpack (or purse, for the ladies). Unfortunately they are fairly prone to getting easily beat up/dented/punctured/bruised/etc.

Thank goodness Jacqueline Knits has come to save the day. Their Apple Jacket product is a hand-knitted “jacket” that wraps around any apple and keeps it nice and cozy right up until you’re ready to take a bite.

These are available from Rose and Radish for $14.50.

Bike Vending Machine

Bike Dispenser
You can vend just about anything. From candy to coke to iPods to movies to cellphones and even groceries…you seriously can get just about anything in a vending machine.

Now you can add another thing to the list of vendable goods. Bicycles. Yes. Bicycles.

A Dutch company has been testing out the idea of renting out bikes via bike vending machines.

Bike Dispenser
You’d simply rent a bike to take you from one place to another and then drop off your bike at your destination’s bike dispenser.

It really is a great idea (and certainly hasn’t been done in this fashion before). The company actually won a 2007 Spark Design & Architecture Awards for their ingenious idea.
