Suspend the feeling of utter disbelief when you see this. Its actually real. It’s a proper, I hesitate to say, “sport” in Finland where some 10,000 girls are doing it. There’s even a national championship. Plus BBC reported on it – you can’t doubt the BBC! It is however quite bizarre, you can’t argue with that.

World, behold the wonder that is hobbyhorsing. There’s even a documentary about it.

So, one day you decide to put a Go Pro camera into the water bucket and leave it to see if any animals will come to drink from it. Of course they come and the resulting video really made my day. The video was made by an interesting John Wells from The Field Lab also known as the Southwest Texas Alternative Energy And Sustainable Living Field Laboratory.

I sincerely hope this is a joke. A bluetooth enabled salt shaker that plays music plus you can use it for mood lighting. Again – I sincerely hope this is a joke. A California-based “lifestyle” company called Herb & Body (apparently without a website) wants to finance the insane product through Indiegogo crowdfunding platform from June 15 on.

Some googling dug up an old PR document from 2015 which describes the same product from the same company but with some more sane (not by much) specs. It was supposed to be the worlds first digital salt dispenser. It was supposed to help consumers measure, track and control their salt consumption. A couple of years later they apparently decided to up the ante with a speaker and some LEDs.

Coming soon. Price tag as well.

We thought vinyl records were dead at one point and boy were we wrong. A Lithuanian company called BrainMonk is apparently betting on the same thing happening with audio cassettes. They might be on to something, since according to Billboard cassette album sales in the United States increased by 74% in 2016.  Wow is all I can say to that. I sincerely doubt it but you can’t really argue with the design concept of Elbow – it looks great and even kind of cool.

I’d buy it. I don’t know what I’d use it for since most of my cassette collection is likely ripe for trash right now. But I’d buy it.

Nox is a portable luminaire by Zurich-based designer Alfredo Häberli for a Danish brand Astep. This simple night lamp looks almost too simple, but it has an advantage. It has a wireless charging system with induction technology, so you can use it unplugged. You can carry it around wherever you need light both indoors and outdoors. It’s touch dimmer makes the Nox light versatile. It offers anything from a cozy soft light at a dinner party or a brighter light for reading. And that’s it. Do you need more from a lamp? I don’t think so.
