It’s not the first time you heard us warn you about the repercussions of sitting on the computer for too long. Stiff back, sore wrists, numb legs….the list is endless! Looks to me that we all need a YoYo Mouse! This cute concept forces you to get up and do some Yo-Yo tricks to re-energize it because the battery drains out fast! Works best for me be, given that my wireless mouse runs out of battery ever so often!Designer: Shih-Chan Chiu [ via yankodesign.com ]

Startup Radically Reinvents The Disposable Coffee Cup, Eliminating Plastic Lids
Called Compleat, the all-paper design has a built-in lid with sipping spout.
I buy many cups of coffee and habitually cringe when reaching for a plastic lid. It’s pretty hypocritical to make a point of avoiding Styrofoam, only to slap a petroleum disc on a paper cup. (And yes, I know that carrying a travel mug would obviate the issue.) Fortunately a designer named Peter Herman has come up with a greener, all-paper disposable cup that folds closed like a takeout container to form a sipping spout.
Herman spent two years of his spare time–he’s an architect at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, firm Ellenzweig–and made close to a hundred prototypes in the process of refining the folding design he calls Compleat.[ via fastcodesign.com ]
