The Clara has got a blue… » 6/18/08 7:00am 6/18/08 7:00am

Self-Stirring Cup of Tea Puts My Left Hand Out of a Job

In GizmodoWorld, no one loves a cuppa quite like I do—although the amount of times I go to the kettle each day is giving me RSI. Anyways, two French guys have designed a cup of tea that stirs itself.

LCD Cutting Board Looks Cool, Doesn't Make Any Sense

On paper, this cutting board concept—with an embedded LCD display and wireless connectivity to display cooking recipes—is a great idea. Unfortunately, being an Iron Chef wannabe myself, it fails the basic kitchen test: the crazy-mess-where's-the-damn-pepper-proof test. My cutting board is always full of slices and… » 4/07/08 6:00am 4/07/08 6:00am

Dough-Nu-Matic Mini Doughnut Maker is Fun for Your Arteries

The Dough-Nu-Matic may have a stupid name, but its saving grace is its fantastic use—it produces mini doughnuts! Mini doughnuts, we tell you!

"Design Object" Single Serve Coffee Maker; Translation: It's Small and White

The WMF 1 is a coffee pad/pod/whatever-based single-serve coffee machine, which integrates your cup into its minimalist cubic design that's not much bigger than a couple of books. The cliche Mac-whiteness can be livened up with your choice of four colors for the lining. Exciting, I know. After dumping in the water and… » 5/01/07 8:15pm 5/01/07 8:15pm
