Shoulder Saver strap leveller

Keeps your shoulder strap in place.
Since the human shoulders slope downwards (oh, c'mon admit it), the strap to the messenger bag will tend to slip downwards and fall off. This can be countered by slightly rising the shoulder with the bag, but this will not only make you look hunchbacked but also put a strain on your back. Not good. The solution could be this invention, the Shoulder Saver, that goes on your shoulder strap and levels out your slope (yes, you have one). Available in black or yellow for USD 14:- from Herrington. Via Book of Joe.

Xipper, the CD and DVD unzipper

CD and DVD unzipper.
When we first stumbled upon this contraption we thought it was pretty lame. Who can't open an ordinary jewel-box? But after thinking about it, and remembering a number of really stubborn CD boxes we have encountered, we have reconsidered our position. This thing is probably just the ticket for a lot of people who can't open CDs without a knife or some similar tool. And in those cases this is a lot safer. It is called the Xipper and it is available in different versions for CDs and DVDs. It even has a safety feature where the little blades are withdrawn when it is not in use. From Solutions at USD 7:95 for a 2-pack with one CD xipper and one DVD xipper.

Desk that becomes a bed
The desk that becomes a bed.
Some news for those among us who will not or can not go home from the office at night. You know who you are. A bed table. Or a table bed. With the clever pendulum construction this desk bed combo allows the desk to stay horizontal even when the bed is folded out. The thing is probably meant for small apartments, but we could see it as a guest bed. When no one is staying over night, the room becomes a home office. And another good thing is that the dust devils that usually pile up under the bed, now end up on top of the desk, thus being easier to remove... From Euro Flying Beds for USD 2,079:- plus shipping. Via Boing Boing. They would have something like it at the Swedish Compact Living store (thanks, Patrik H.), who, among other things, sell Murphybeds from Italian Clei. How much they are, we do not know, but prices would probably be about the same as those at Flying Beds.

Evoline Port hidden electric socket for the kitchen and office

Discreet power strip for the workplace.
Monica F. wrote in to let us know about this invention. The Evoline Port is a pretty clever tuck-away power strip for the kitchen, workplace or office. You install the tube with the power outlets in your bench top or table top or upside down in your kitchen cabinet, and plug the cord into a convenient wall socket. When you need power, you just pull the Port up, connect your cable and push the port back down. When nothing is connected to it, it is just a silver disc on your table top. We have found two German retailers that stock the Port. One, Nüßing, wants EUR 75:33 (about USD 95:-) for the three outlet model. The Powerport is also available with two power outlets and two data ports. Then it is EUR 113:40 (about USD 143:-) also at Nüßing. Also available for EUR 63:50 (about USD 80:-) plus shipping on e-Bay. Thanks, Monica, for the tip!

Un-Du, stuff that removes anything sticky
The stuff that lets you remove anything sticky.
It is called Un-du, and according to art teacher Duffy Franco (who sent the tip to Kevin Kelly's Cool Tools) it is pretty amazing sticker remover. This stuff removes sticky stickers from just about any surface without leaving any traces. According to Duffy, the first commercial for the stuff showed how they removed duck tape from a piece of toilet tissue. Without damage to either. Un-Du is available on Amazon for USD 8:99. Via Cool Tools.
