Traffic light that lets you play Pong with person on the other side officially installed in Germany. What’s not to love?
This see-saw table, De Tafelwip by Marleen Jansen, should make for interesting dinners. Also, it will prevent you from ever eating alone. Made me laugh.
With help from a Chladni Plate, vibrating liquid on a speaker dish, a hose pipe optical trick, ferrofluid, a Ruben’s Tube, and a Telsa Coil, New Zealand musician Nigel Stanford showcases audio frequency visualizations in his music video for Cymatics. Stunning.

Brock Davis turns everyday things into works of art.
My studiomate Mans just launched the OTO Taco Truck. (You might have seen the Icecream truck from last year) I don’t know about you, but my son’s head will explode when he gets this for the holidays. Goes perfectly with his favorite book Dragons Love Tacos.

For all my fellow parents: Brush Brush Brush by “Of Montreal”, animated by Kangaroo Alliance for the season 2 “Teeth” episode of Yo Gabba Gabba.
I would totally love playing with this oversized version of Bananagrams.
Team Tinybop has been hustling: They just launched their third app, illustrated by Tuesday Bassen, called Homes.
It allows you to explore four unique homes around the world, from NYC to Mongolia. Wander in, cook, and play. You can investigate the utilities but watch out for wires spark and tubs overflowing…
The best part, you’re totally allowed to make a mess! Or clean up, with help from a curious cat. What I love the most is that you can personalize each space with your photos and drawings; see yourself in mirrors.
I love the Human Body and Plants, but Homes is definitely my favorite Tinybop baby so far. Try it!
Stina Persson’s new watercolor Butterfly Tattly make me all kinds of happy.
SVA Product of Design Student Eden Lew created Nutshell, aimed at reducing stress and providing a kind of respite from urban life. It’s a pod-inspired platform for productive break-taking.
I’d use it. Read more.
Love these visualizations by Matt Lindley illustrating several strange idioms from around the world.

This clever bike rack made me chuckle. Definitely brings the point across.
Everything is better with a Jumbo Clear Confetti balloon by Knot and Bow.
Show your support for a free and open internet by buying Tumblr’s Net Neutrality Pin and putting small holes in your shirt. You’ll be making a stand against internet slow lanes and look good doing it. Well done, Dan Blackman!
(I already have one and love it!)
This giant calendar called It’s A Month made me laugh! Totally backing this Kickstarter. Well done, Dave!
I just had chills when my studiomate Bas told me the story of the above video. What you see is the footage of his GoPro that he lost 1.5 years ago while filming this Like Knows Like video.
The GoPro fell off Kelsey’s surfboard and waited over a year on the ocean floor to be discovered by a young scuba diver called Carlo Fezzi. Carlo posted a still from the movie on Instagram, someone recognized the guy and tagged him. And just like that, the internet came to the rescue!
I am simply amazed that the camera held up all this time. Quite a testament to their quality. The GoPro marketing team should be all over this story!
I love the internet so much.
The Land of Nod folks keep coming out with the coolest stuff for kids. They never cease to impress me. Check out this Bungalow Play Home. My kids would go nutty over this.
As a NYC mom, concerned about my kids’ street safety, I love the dancing traffic light concept. And how surprising that this is an idea by smart, the car company.
