For some reason mankind has been happy to settle for elastic rubber bands that only exist in two dimensions. So far they've served us mostly ok, but the talented designers at Nendo have realized that taking rubber bands into the third dimension vastly improves their usefulness. From securing rolled up documents, to binding together a bunch of pencils, it's just an all together better design.
And one can't even imagine how painful a cubic rubber band must feel on impact after being fired across a room. That alone could make these totally worth whatever Nendo charges for these once they're available starting in April. [Nendo via Habitusliving]
