What we have here is a very smart use of empty spaces. These stairs open out into drawers and cupboard cubbies. It’s a space-saving solution that took foresight and planning.
Thinking of the dead space under the stairs and making use of it is quite clever. It works great for storing bedding or photo albums. And it is ideal for stashing the children’s toys when guests arrive.
It Beats Waiting for the Fitting Room
Though most of us love to shop, there are parts of shopping that even the biggest shopaholics dread — trying clothes on in the fitting room. Trying clothes on can be a nightmare, from the often too-small cubicles to those horrible fluorescent lights that show flaws we never even knew we had.
This AIS 5G Smart Mirror allows you to try clothes virtually without stepping foot in a fitting room. After the machine scans your body's dimensions, you can "try" on clothes from various popular brands, all in one place.
Wine has been a popular beverage since biblical times, whether it comes out of a box or from a climate-controlled cellar. But while skilled sommeliers can detect even the faintest differences, most of us need a bit of help. For that reason, wine lovers can rejoice to know that there is now a thermometer-sized tool that can analyze any glass of wine — the MyOeno.
When placed in a glass of wine, this tool immediately scans the drink and tells you everything from how acidic it is to how old it is. We see this becoming the ultimate bar-must-have.
Dripping Red Table
This red table looks like it is dripping wet with paint. The legs are formed by the illusion of paint pouring onto the floor. The creator of this 3-D tableau calls it, “Paint or Die but Love Me,” a title that only adds intrigue to the item.
The artist, John Nouanesing, in all his glossy reflection, brings passion to life.
Another View of Plastic Pollution
This National Geographic cover design cleverly fashions an island out of one of those ubiquitous grocery store bags. Underwater, the massive plastic bag looms representing the 18 billion pounds of plastic waste that finds its way into the oceans.
The 2018 cover image asks, “Planet or Plastic?” A play on the “paper or plastic” option grocery clerks have long asked.
