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.

Cima Ladder – Climbing on your roof just got fashionable

Cima Ladder

The Cima Ladder is reinvention of a classic tool. By using a carbon fiber composite and eliminating other movable parts, the 7 foot Cima Ladder is able to weigh in at barely 2 pounds.

The designers of the Cima Ladder claim its staggered steps are more natural to use than the classic ladder. I can’t imagine they’d be that natural to just stand on if you were doing something like painting a house. But for climbing from Point A to Point B, it does seem quite functional.

A Sofa Bed taken to new Heights

BonBon DOC Sofa Bed
Multifunctional furniture really is something that every home should have. It just makes too much sense for furniture to serve multiple purposes to not have at least something in your home like that.

The DOC Sofa Bed by BonBon Trading is a fantastic example of multipurpose furniture. It converts from a simple sofa into a bunk bed. It takes the “sofa bed” to a completely new level and when it’s converted into the bed, it doesn’t take up any more floor space which is perfect for smaller apartments/lofts.
