I'm so conflicted on these in-desk mounts. On one hand, it gets rid of a hub, which is great. On the other, the cables now stick up at a 90 degree angle from the desk. While this is convenient for adding / removing, and I totally get it for items you only plug in on occasion (camera for transferring pictures), I can't stand the thought of leaving something plugged in there long-term. Long-term stuff would look cleaner, at least to me, routed to under the desk to a hidden hub there, if necessary, or straight to the computer assuming that is hidden away. I kind of liked the flip-up ethernet + AC ports that lined the auditorium seating in one of the lecture halls while I was in college. DIY Desk-Embedded USB Hub Puts USB Ports at Your Fingertips

Luminous Mushroom Night Light I was originally going to use part of a birch branch I cut from our tree (it had been partly rotted). Once I started sawing the rotten part off, two spiders and an earwig crawled out and I lost my nerve. I considered my other options. A smooth, decaying stick I found in the strawberry bed seemed aesthetically pleasing... but all the cracks almost guaranteed lots of bugs.
Imeüble 2.5 dimension shelf system by Bjørn Jørund Blikstad Second and a Half Dimension Shelves This project goes by the name “Imeüble” and it’s a shelving system that accesses not just your eyeballs and book-storing hands, it works with your mind to help you store information the same way you learn to associate words to their meanings! The easiest comparison is one the designer uses: when you read the word “cornfield,” you imagine a field full of corn, not the word “cornfield.” In that the shelf appears to be 2D but is actually 3D, this whole system works in the same environment of learning.
Search results for watch Here is a neat idea that allows you to play with the different faces for a watch. The Watch oNe basically features an E-Ink display which is LED back lit, but its face is not constant, meaning you can change it at whim or fancy. Hook the watch up to the internet and download your kinda face to it.

If you get any on your skin, wash it off immediately. If you ingest or get any in your eyes, wash immediately (or rinse mouth out; DO NOT induce vomitting) and then call the doctor/poison control/hospital.

In Case Of Emergency Cut Toothpaste! I thought I was being a miser, but in all honesty I cut open the end of my toothpaste tube to get to the last wee bit of paste. Call it conservation or being stingy but that’s what I do. So I totally identify with the Thrift Toothpaste package design and hope someone like Colagte or Crest adopt it! It will save me the trouble of hunting for scissors…I’ll just tear open the rear end! Thrift Toothpaste Package Design by GUO Lili
In a new study, researchers report that bumblebees were able to figure out the most efficient routes among several computer-controlled "flowers," quickly solving a complex problem that even stumps supercomputers. We already know bees are pretty good at facial recognition, and researchers have shown they can also be effective air-quality monitors. Bumblebees can solve the classic "traveling salesman" problem, which keeps supercomputers busy for days. They learn to fly the shortest possible route between flowers even if they find the flowers in a different order, according to a new British study. The traveling salesman problem is a problem in computer science; it involves finding the shortest possible route between cities, visiting each city only once.
