A Floating Hot Tub

The HotTug is the world’s first wood-fired hot tub that you can bathe and “sail” in. Float down a river in the middle of winter, sipping a cold drink and soaking in the steaming hot water! SO FUN!

Tinybop: Skyscraper

The fine folks over at Tinybop launched yet another wonderful app: Skyscraper! It allows you to playfully contract your own skyline of buildings, send people up and down in elevators, spark a blackout or clog the toilet, fix a pipe or put out a fire and so on! The app was beautifully designed by Berlin-based illustrator Mike Ellis.

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.

tabtag – Glowing & Reusable MacBook Stickers

Every time I grab my MacBook and see our custom CreativeMornings tabtag, it puts a smile on my face. I am usually not someone that would E-V-E-R put a sticker on anything I own, but the concept of tabtags won me over: They are glowing (!) and reusable MacBook stickers. You can remove them without a trace and reuse them over and over. SO MUCH FUN!

Chose from their huge archive of designs or make your own.
