Once limited to gardens and fairy tales, these gnomes have a new job — ensuring your houseplants are adequately watered. It turns out that these little gnome-shaped statues actually serve as self-watering planter inserts — delivering the perfect amount of water to the roots of your plants.
Plant owners can fill the gnome with water, which is later released through a very peculiar hole in a surprising place (we’ll let you use your imagination to guess where the hole is). Cute and useful!
Let There Be Light
It goes without saying, but Brazilian artist Luiza Guidi Tomio has changed everything we know about home lighting with her innovative artwork. At first, Luiza's light fixtures resemble open windows.
Upon a closer look, we realize these are not open windows but frames with built-in lights. As the frame lifts off the wall, it casts a shadow on the wall, making it look like an open window. Your houseguests will be just as mesmerized as we were when we first saw this!
Keeping It Clean
Between bottles, pacifiers, and countless toys, ensuring your child's necessities are clean can be a full-time job for any parent. Unfortunately, all of that cleaning can mean hours of work (and time away from your loved one).
Thankfully, Grownsy Direct has created a portable UV light sanitizer that not only sanitizes all types of commonly used objects but also dries them. Think this product is only good for baby gear? Think again! Parents can use it to sanitize everything from makeup brushes to electric toothbrushes! Useful for many years to come!
Snazzy-Looking Smart Glasses
For many of us, the idea of "smart" glasses that can be paired to your phone conjures up images of something out of a sci-fi film. But if you thought these futuristic features couldn't be fashionable, think again.
Vue glasses look like real designer glasses that you would see in a fashion magazine. An added bonus is that they can be synced up to your smartphone and allow you to play music and answer calls while looking (and feeling) like regular eyeglasses! Who would have thought?
A Little Bit of Old and New
You can remember using a typewriter if you're of a certain age. And while many don't miss having to start all over again after making a tiny mistake, there is something to be said about the sound of keys clicking away.
This nostalgia probably led to this designer creating an amazing fusion of old and new technology — the typewriter attachment for an IPad. You'll feel like you're working on an amazing novel as you click away on this vintage-inspired keyboard.
