Take flight in to the Northern Lights

Northern Lights
Interested in seeing the beautiful Northern Lights up close and personal? Well, billionaire Richard Branson is working on offering people just that opportunity.

With a scheduled launch period of 2010, in 2 years we could be flying people right smack in the middle of one of the most amazing natural occurrences in existence.

Scientific studies show that it should be safe for humans to be right in the middle of it. I guess we’ll see.

Welcome/Goodbye Doormat

Welcome/Goodbye Doormat

What a great idea! The Welcome/Goodbye Doormat from Chiasso makes perfect sense!

A lot of doormats say “Welcome” on them, but why don’t they ever say “Goodbye”? Well Chiasso has answered this question by creating a doormat that does just that.

Don’t leave your friends wondering if you were just kicking them out the door. Give them their parting phrase acknowledgement whether you actually say it or not. Right.

Fluid Earth Bowl

Fluid Earth Bowl

Fluidforms is the maker of all things wavy. All of their products have a unique, flowing feel to them that makes them feel natural.

One of their most unique products is the Fluid Earth bowl.

Each bowl can be customized to create your very own individual bowl.

The way the Fluid Earth bowl works is you are presented a map from which you pick a surface area (such as your hometown or favorite city) and Fluidforms will analyze the topography of that area and then create a bowl that follows the contours of the topography.

So since I’m here in Denver, I could have an interesting bowl with the Rocky Mountains making its way down the side.

Each bowl costs around $240 USD and takes around 3-5 weeks to produce and ship.
