Shoe Toss lamps

If you’re on the hunt for a truly unique lamp to accessorize your living room, Etsy is a far better place to start than Ikea. Because that’s the only place you’ll be able to buy this illuminating creation from Ricochet Studio that looks like a pair of shoes tossed over a power line. Read more

Underpantones

Underpantones

Personally, I think it’s a good idea they didn’t decide to name the product: PMS Underwear. From the manufacturer web site:

“Suddenly, the Pantone brand is everywhere. Overuse? Maybe. But, as they say, if you can’t beat ‘em… so, over a few beers, we decided to add to the products on offer. Ladies and gentlemen, for him and for her, we present underpantones (and, of course, pantytones)! If we had our way it’s what every well-dressed designer would be wearing.”

GPS Shoes

Dominic Wilcox - GPS Shoes

Dominic Wilcox has created a fully functional prototype pair of shoes that will guide you home no matter where you are in the world.
A little piece of software was created to plot your preferred destination on a map. This is then uploaded via USB to the shoe. The GPS is powered by a battery similar to those found in mobile phones. The data from the GPS in the left shoe wirelessly communicates with the right shoe which shows the progress made on a row of lights.
