The Yellow Drum Machine

This whizz bang robot wanders round the place and tries to find a surface worth playing a beat on. See it in action here.

Weapons of mass day to day use

How do you like your egg in the morning?

I like mine in the shape of a gun. I also like my mug to double as a knuckle duster, my external hard drives to imitate a bomb, and my girls to understand i like this stuff. I think this means I'm a proper bloke, or at least am trying to be one. However one thing is for sure, i wont hold a girlfriend for long, and will know doubt end up on the 9 o'clock news.

I do have a few problems with these...

1. They are mental
2. They are weird
3 And i love them.

To be honest i would quite happily go with the  AMCE style bomb because there is no bombs that are actually that shape. But i think you could really hurt someone with the mug.

Basically I'm not sure what i really think of these, but I'm sure that is a good place to be (not actually mental, but still a bit of a bloke) .

First the Boom Box now the Bird Box.

We've found this awesome product called the "Bird box".

It's a speaker designed in a bird house shape. What's cool about this is that you could have them situated in communal areas of parks, they could then pick up a bluetooth signal so you could pipe your favourite tunes straight from your phone.

Come on Sony what you waiting for.

Sun Jar

Tobias Wong, the man who brought us the smoking mittens has got some other sweet designs under his belt. The Sun Jar caught our eye as environmentally friendly and pretty kick ass.

Tag Teams

Since the introduction of our new grilling machine there have been a lot of people teaming up for some more adventurous sandwich making. As i mentioned before in an earlier post a toastie machine is a more creative way of eating lunch as well as my weird metaphor for the design department.

At the moment we have designers eating with accounts, creatives with development and other creative teams working together to create a better toasted sandwich. Steak was being grilled the other week!

Could one machine create a more cohesive working agency over lunch! Who knows.

ps. Any interesting toasted sandwiches filling anyone has it, let us know?
