Men: Pee And Wash In The Same Fixture! Lenny Bruce would have had such fun with this, but this just makes so much sense, a sink built on top of a urinal! And designer Yeongwoo Kim has made it look good, too. The theoretical sequence is that you use the urinal, then wash your hands and the washwater rinses the urinal, saving water. Since of course, everybody washes their hands after peeing, right? It makes even more sense in multiple units in mens rooms, saving both space and water. According to Yanko, it is a iF Concept Design 2010 winning entry. The designer writes on his website: To save water, Eco Urinal is designed to use the water that was used for washing hands to flush the urine. This in some ways makes more sense than a waterless toilet and probably saves as much water.

Napkin PC (by @baekdal) #design It is the time of CES and the media is currently filled with a lot of very interesting products - but here is one that you will not see (unfortunately). It's a PC the size of a napkin. The best part is that it is based on passive screen technology (epaper), which means that it only needs power when you change it. The result is that whatever you draw on it will stay on the screen forever (or atleast until you change it) without the need for cables or batteries. This is a brilliant concept by Avery Holleman, and apart from the color epaper, all of it could be done today. In any case, I want one - as soon as somebody makes one. Note: I am not really sure that running windows on it is such a good idea - or let me rephrase that, any operating system. (Tip via email) Follow: 42Concepts

The Little Habits | zen habits ‘Powerful indeed is the empire of habit.’ ~Publilius Syrus Post written by Leo Babauta. It’s amazing how big a difference a little thing can make. And when these little things are repeated daily, and formed into habits, their benefits increase not just by multiples but by exponents. The little habits can be life-changing. Everyone’s world-changing little habits will be different, but I’ll share a few of mine, and then some tips for forming them. My Little Habits I have lots of little habits, but these are a handful of my favorites: Get-in-the-door ritual. How to Form Them I’ve written about habits numerous times before, but here’s an easy guide to forming a little habit: Do one habit at a time.Make it easy to do.Do it consciously, very consciously at first.Don’t allow any exceptions.Post your progress publicly.Keep doing it, every single day.Enjoy the habit. Forming a habit can be easy, if you enjoy it, take it slowly, and do it mindfully.
