If you’re a fan of “Who’s on First?”, then you’ll love At the Bar, a modern take on the classic comedy routine:
The ‘design-led’ tents from FieldCandy inject color, creativity, and fun into the camping experience by taking the standard tent design and giving each one a fun story to tell.
Don’t let the designs fool you though; these are also high performance tents, made to keep you dry in the rain, warm in the cold, and comfortable in the wind. Plus, the cotton inner tent doesn’t attract condensation the way that most modern tents do.
I’d imagine the one downside is that they don’t look quite as picture-perfect when you pitch one at your local camping spot as they do on the website, but even if it’s just good for a few good laughs every time you set it up, I’d say that’s reason enough to give FieldCandy a try.
Class up your next drinking event with a collaboration corkscrew from DQM and ClichÃ©:
Featuring a veneer wooden handle and embossed logos, it’s got more street cred than most wines can manage.
Here’s an interesting take on the Rube Goldberg Machine, which seems to take physics and flip it on its head:
Can you figure out the trick?
If you’re going to spend a lot on fancy coffee, you should at least get that coffee in a fun and/or interesting way.
Enter: The Velopresso
The Velopresso is a coffee cart on wheels, designed to stay off the grid while enabling a single barista to run the entire operation. The cart itself was designed from the ground up around a custom rear-steer tricycle, a unique pedal-driven grinder, and a robust gas-fired lever espresso machine. The result is a fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology â€“ old tech meets new tech, pedal power meets caffeine power, and engineering meets aesthetics.
And since there’s no motors to run or electricity needed, the Velopress doesn’t make a lot of noise, meaning you can have your coffee in relative silence as you enjoy the scenery around you.
If you’re interested in buying your own Velopresso, they’re taking pre-orders in early Summer of 2013, though the company is based out of the UK, so you may need to factor in some shipping if your coffee dreams take you elsewhere.
