DeVillain Centerfold foldable electric guitar

Folding guitar. An airline pilot's contribution to music.
Swedish airline pilot
Fredrik Johansson had a problem bringing his guitar on trips. He tested different guitars, and he frequently asked for folding guitars in music stores. The answer was always that such a thing was impossible. This prompted Fredrik to spend a few years of his spare time designing his own folding travel guitar. And now it's in production and fore sale. It is not exactly cheap (EUR 2,600:- or USD 3,370:-) and it is not easy to get ones hands on, as luthier Leif Jakobsson will have time to finish no more than 300 of them this year. But it is quite unique. More on DeVillains website.

Dell D420 laptop utan hårddisk
Dell launches hard drive free laptops.
Besides the fantastic 100 dollar laptop (now unfortunately priced at USD 175:-) Dell is the first manufacturer (we have heard of) that seems to make a serious attempt to market laptops without the usual hard disc drives (HDD). Instead they offer a 32GB flash memory or solid state drive (SSD) in two new products just launched. The flash memory in the Dell machines is the same as in music players and USB memory sticks, only bigger. The advantages with the flash drive laptops are obvious; no moving parts, no spinning fan(?), quicker start-up and access among others. But 32GB? We have 120GB right here and we are longing for more... The new laptops are priced at USD 549:-, but they are so far only available in the Americas. [Via]

Clay and sand evaporation fridge.
This smart preservation device for foodstuffs was invented in 1995 by Nigerian engineer Mohammed Bah Abba. The Pot-in-pot cooler consists of a small earthenware pot nestling inside a larger one with wet sand filling the space in between. As the water in the wet sand evaporates, it extracts heat from contents of the inner pot thus cooling them. The pot cooler is one of many clever ideas shown at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York in its in "Design for the other 90%" exhibition opening 4 May 2007. Here's a link to a preview story and slideshow in the International Herald Tribune. [Via]

Tratt för trögflytande vätskor och krämer

Slow fluid funnel.
Getting to use the last of the shampoo or ketchup can be hard. Modern packaging is not exactly designed to help us get everything from the bottle. In that case maybe this funnel could be helpful. It can be used as an ordinary funnel in the usual way, or to connect two bottles together like in the picture on the left. Then you can let the bottles with the s-l-o-w running contents be for as long as it takes. A task that could be very time consuming and irritating should you have to hold them yourself and wait and watch. From Home Trends. USD 10:95 for two. [Via]
