Why yes, officer, that is a wood-burning stove in my glove box~
It’s hard to imagine what led Pascal Prokop to install a wood-burning stove in his 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon. Though we’re safe to say that the trend won’t catch like wildfire. Prokob built and installed the wood-fired stove himself and got an operating permit from the Swiss technical inspection authority. And you thought old Volvo station wagons weren’t hot…

When graphic designer Livia Ritthaler moved to London to complete her bachelor’s degree, she found herself with “neither the money nor the space for a record player.” So she built one. Her ultra-minimalist gramophone is made of just paper, wood, and metal and it’s operated by hand. Meaning: You twirl the record with your fingers. It is, of course, completely impractical. But it works!Designer：Livia Ritthaler [ via fastcodesign.com ]
The Eclipse DECT Wireless Home Phone consists of a base unit and handset embedded together in a single and continuous ellipsoidal form factor. With no visible signs of a display or keypad, the Eclipse conforms to the minimalist school of thought in design. It features a crystal clear display and High Quality Duplex speakerphone, amongst other standard stuff. I like it!

We always sees people on the subway wrapping their earbuds around their phones when not in use. However, the problem is that these earbuds get in the way when you want to use the handset again. The solution is: the Tether Phone.
The idea here is to have an indented area on the smartphone for wrapping the cord above the screen and some custom sockets for the headphones in the lower part of the phone. The earbuds will also act as the speaker/earpiece when integrated in that way. Brilliant? I think so! The headphones pop out of the rubber immediately, so there’s no problem with detaching them. All the parts of the headphone mechanism are replaceable, while the jack is recessed into the body of the phone to be less obtrusive.
This idea is so simple, that I wonder why no one thought about it… Maybe we’ll see one of the major companies taking on this idea. What do you say?
