Truly Unique Luggage

Posted on December 14, 2011 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (62)

What kind of luggage would you design, if practicality were besides the point? At first glance, British designer Sarah Jane Williams' bespoke suitcases, trunks and satchels suggest they might hold exotic musical instruments, and then you realize she's made these funky shapes simply because she can. "Historically exceptional craftsmanship was the norm, now it is the exception," says her website. “Williams British Handmade is designed to challenge this statement by utilising regional historical craftsmanship and metamorphosising the traditional in order to produce a collection of original fashion artefacts. ”All of the products produced by Williams British Handmade are bespoke or limited edition items made to the highest standards. The leather used is traditional bridle leather of the best quality possible. The brass frames are produced by an accomplished metal craft worker. Every stitch is compelted by hand using the traditional techniques of saddle stitching.

Bugs On the Menu

Posted on November 23, 2011 at 2:50 AM Comments comments (6)

World Entomophagy is one of a growing number of insect suppliers that promote bugs as food for humans. Encouraged by media attention, TV shows like Fear Factor, and growing concerns about the threat of over population to the food supply, Americans—at least a few—are warming to the idea. “In the past three years, interest in eating bugs has surged,” says David George Gordon, a chef and author of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook. The number of U.S. chefs cooking insects has “probably tripled in the past five years,” he says, and new suppliers selling bugs primarily for human consumption, rather than as food for pet fish and reptiles, have popped up in the last two years. “A lot of people … call and ask if they can just buy the bugs in bulk because they want to add them to a stir-fry,” says Kathy Mitchell, marketing manager at Hotlix, a company that has long sold novelty bug products such as scorpion lollipops.

School Bans Mobiles - One Man Prospers

Posted on November 17, 2011 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (43)

School bans on cell phones are dialing dollars for one savvy entrepreneur. Vernon Alcoser has cornered the mobile market at two Bronx schools, where students pay $1 a day to keep their cell phones in the trucks he parks nearby. “It’s better than trying to sneak your phone in,” said Tatyana James, a freshman at Herbert H. Lehman High School who pays Alcoser’s company, Pure Loyalty Electronic Device Storage, to baby-sit her BlackBerry during class. As far as Alcoser knows, his phone storage trucks are the city’s first. Parked across from Lehmanon E. Tremont Ave. and DeWitt Clinton High School on Mosholu Parkway, they serve more than 700 students each day. “It makes the students and parents feel better to know their phones are safe,” said Alcoser, 38, a correction officer who lives on Webb Ave. in the Bronx. The city Department of Education banned electronic devices in 1998, cracking down on cell phones in 2005, said spokeswoman Marge Feinberg. But not all schools enforce the ban the same way. For years, Lehman students brought their phones to school, hiding them during class, said Lehman junior Jenifer Espinal. But this September, the school installed metal detectors.


Alcoserhit on the idea of a mobile phone-mobile two months ago, after hearing Lehman parent Jeanette Millan complain about the ban. Her son calls to check in after football practice. “I need to know where my child is at all times,” she said. “He takes two trains and a bus to get home. It’s dangerous out there.” Cellphones disrupt learning, said Feinberg. But students use their phones to stay safe and have fun after school, Alcoser said. “I need my phone in case someone tries to hold me up or stab me,” said Lehman sophomore Justin Ginorio. “I can call for help.” Tatyana, 14, is hung up on her smart phone. On her long bus ride home from school, she uses the phone to text message friends and post Twitter updates and says it “gives me something to do.” Local bodegas have provided cell phone baby-sitting for a fee since the ban went into effect. But Espinal called Pure Loyalty a safer and “more convenient” option. To prevent theft, students are photographed with their phones every morning and use ticket stubs to retrieve them after school. Tatyana said some students sneak their phones past Lehman’s metal detectors. But only parents are allowed to retrieve confiscated phones. “I’d rather pay a dollar than take that risk,” she said. Pure Loyalty’s success has surprised Alcoser, but not employee Jonathan Ortiz, who graduated from Lehman last spring. “These kids can’t live without their phones.”

Rethinking School Photos

Posted on November 12, 2011 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Let’s face it, school portraits are boring. Flat and dull. The WSJ has taken a look at the industry and discovered some new companies trying to revitalize it. Kelsey and Dennis Kleiman of Brooklyn, N.Y., were underwhelmed by their daughter’s school pictures. So Mr. Kleiman, a professional photographer, volunteered to take less-stilted portraits of their daughter’s classmates. It was such a hit with the parents that in 2009 Mr. and Ms.Kleiman, whose children are 3 and 6 years old, founded a school portrait company, Stomping Ground Photo. It is among a handful of companies trying to recast school pictures. Stomping Ground photographs are taken against a plain background and capture kids doing kid stuff: jumping, laughing, pouting. It is now photographing about 20 schools in New York and Los Angeles. Parents can view proofs online and decide which photos to purchase.

Cute Japanese School Buses That Go the Extra Smile

Posted on November 8, 2011 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (85)

Too cute for school? Not in Japan, where settling at mere cuteness means you're not trying hard enough. That high-pitched sound you're hearing isn't a school bus in need of a brake job, just its pint-sized passengers squealing "KAWAII!" in unison. Now these are the school bus of school buses... they are so cool!

Pizza Sized Burgers

Posted on November 6, 2011 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (41)

The “Pizza-Size Burger,” a new hamburger available at Burger King Japan take is almost 9 inches in diameter. It’s topped with four overlapping Whopper patties. According to Inventor Spot you can “order the Pizza-Size Burger in two different styles, though both styles are served in an odd “half & half” format with one half featuring the everyday Whopper’s toppings: tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup and so on.Slices of fresh avocado are added to the, er, “Fresh Avocado” version and tortilla chips, cheese sauce and jalapeño peppers occupy half of the ‘Cheese Nacho’ version. Cut it up as you would a pie (or a pizza, duh) and dig in!”

Fat Bank

Posted on November 2, 2011 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (50)

According to, giving new meaning to the phrase recycle, repurpose, reuse, a Seminole County plastic surgeon is opening a fat bank Friday so patients who have fat removed during liposuction can store it for future use. Cosmetic surgeons who perform fat-transfer procedures typically transfer the patient’s fat immediately after removing it through liposuction, often within the hour. Common sites for the transferred fat are the face and breasts. Having their fat in the bank would allow patients to draw on it later, when they want to plump up body parts that have succumbed to age, said Dr. Jeffrey Hartog, whose new LiquidGold center is next to his cosmetic-surgery clinic. “I will present it as an option to any patient having liposuction,” he said.

Toothpaste Rollers

Posted on October 21, 2011 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Gary Peterson spent most of his summer walking the toothpaste aisle in Fred Meyer stores. He was looking for just one device, his Roll-It toothpaste tube roller. It helps people squeeze every last bit of paste out of the tube. The gadget made it into 132 Fred Meyer stores in June, but staying there meant selling at least 480. Without an ad campaign or any marketing, 590 reached check-out stands that month. It’s nearly unheard of for a first-time invent or to land in a major retailer’s health and beauty care aisle, a highly competitive category dominated by multinational corporations. And yet for Peterson, 71, the work has just begun.


He walked into his bathroom and noticed a toothpaste tube with its squeezed-out end secured tightly with a clothespin. “I thought to myself, we need to do something about that,” Peterson said. He worked for two years on the idea, peddling it to a local grocery and hardware store. Though other tube rollers and squeezers are on the market, his pitch goes, the Roll-It offers a unique P-shaped holder that locks the twister in place. He’s already crafted prototypes for four other sizes, including one for smaller cosmetic tubes. “In those early days, I maybe sold 1,000 Roll-Its,” he said of his sales prior to teaming with Fred Meyer. At a larger company, he said, that might have meant the end. “The small guy really has a problem,” said Peterson, who made multiple calls to Fred Meyer as he struggled through the retailer’s vendor paperwork. He aims to help other inventors with what he’s learned.

Vampire Teeth

Posted on October 19, 2011 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

The latest cosmetic dentistry trend out of Japan is “Yaeba”: Vampire Teeth. Dental Salon Plaisir, located in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district, specializes in this cosmetic procedure that lengthens, sharpens and enhances one’s canines to fang-tastic proportions. Dr. Yoko Kashiyama and her staff offer Vampire Teeth as just one of their many diagnostic, hygienic and cosmetic dentistry services though she seems to be pushing Yaeba of late – must be the season (of the witch?). At least one Japanese TV network has featured the procedure by sending a roving reporter to Dental Salon Plaisir… not merely to report on Yaeba, but actually get it done!

The Bracelet that Stores Earbuds

Posted on October 17, 2011 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)

People love to listen to music on the go. Whether they’re jogging, suffering through a long commute, or walking around a school campus. However, where do their earbuds go when they are done using them? Mark Williams has created a simple solution to a problem that has existed since the iPod was invented. He’s created a unique bracelet that makes it simple to wrap and store the earbuds on your wrist until you’re ready to use them again. The portability of his device makes it great for anyone on the go.

On the Budwrap website, Mark mentions what inspired his invention. Then one morning at the beginning of the school day, (my first year as a high school teacher) I walked from my car to the front of the school and saw many students wearing two popular things…earbuds and silicone bracelets. Bingo! The idea hit me like a swift slap across the face as if the idea was staring me down the entire time — “I can re-invent the silicone bracelet to manage earbud cords!” And that very morning the Budwrap was born!

Buy Online, Pick Up Offline

Posted on October 15, 2011 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

In March 2011, Walmart launched “Pick Up Today,” a service that allows customers to order online and collect their shopping from a local store the same day. French supermarket Chronodrive has a designated pick-up depot for consumers to pick up products ordered online. Shoppers at Real can take advantage of the German retailer's click-and-collect service, Drive; after purchasing online, consumers can collect their groceries at a pre-arranged time directly from the store, as quickly as two hours after ordering. US lifestyle store Bed, Bath & Beyond takes in-store pick up one step further with their ‘Shop Your Local Store & Pick Up Near Your School’ service. The program enables students to stock up on dorm room essentials suchas bedding, towels and decorations at any store, and have them delivered to a branch near their college for pick-up, thus avoiding shipping costs and making moving to college easier.


The Sexiest Outdoor Speakers with Mood Lights

Born Rich mentioned a lot of the designer speakers in the past were great for your indoors while being great acoustic devices. But with the Make 01 Black Forrest series, be perfectly comfortable in hosting outdoor parties and social get-togethers without compromising on your favorite music in the background, as these speakers are fitted with LED multi-colored lighting systems, and the ability to emit 360-degree surround sound in the open. Looking at the advantages this one is sure a winner in the long run. These set of amazing speakers from the Black Forrest series is $3,516. If any company can make the cheaper version of these speakers, around $500 and we don’t really care with less advantage, we bet those things could make new business for the music lover.

Budweiser Reinvents Soccer with Pool Ball

Posted on May 29, 2011 at 7:40 AM Comments comments (5)

Have you ever wanted to play soccer at a bar? Budweiser’s latest advertising campaign imagines such a vision as the brand unveils the sport of the future: Pool Ball. Created by Ogilvy Argentina, the clever interactive game was designed to engage soccer fans in nightlife settings. At several pubs throughout Buenos Aires, exclusive “Pool Ball” events took place where teams competed head-to-head in a game that is similar to pool but is played using soccer skills. A massive 22-foot pool table served as the stage and two teams were challenged with kicking and head-butting 15 soccer balls, re-skinned to resemble billiard balls into goals positioned in place of each of the pockets of a pool table.
