Dulux PaintPod Provides a Little Pump Action to DIY Painting

Dulux's new PaintPod system is a labor-saver for decorators, pumping paint directly to its roller at the right rate to avoid splodges. In one swoop it eliminates those drips-on-floor and fussing with cans that painting usually involves (at least, in our house). Best of all: fill it with water when you're done, and it cleans itself for you in just 10 minutes. Its one drawback is that it takes drop-in five liter paint packs, for the specially formulated paint—$40 for white and $60 for color. Available April in the UK, for around $135.
