Tic-tac-toe Coasters The X-mix coasters from Mocha.UK look like a stack of funky, colorful protectors for your tabletops. However, pop out the x’s and they reveal themselves as a dual purpose accessory. You can use them to play the classic game of tic-tac-toe or noughts and crosses as it is also known. The set of five coasters come apart to form 10 game pieces for a bit of fun. As the coasters are made of rubber, a little bit of water will get them to temporarily stick on kitchen counter tiles, mirrors or the fridge for an impromptu game with family members or friends. Children will enjoy playing tic-tac-toe in the bath tub!

Chateau Chambord Hidden in the center of a forest is the Chateau Chambord. If you close your eyes for a moment and envision what your idea might be for a house only occupied for the occasional nights stay or whose primary use would be as a hunting lodge – a castle with 440 rooms, 84 staircases, and 365 fireplaces would certainly not be what most people would have in mind. Yet, this was the structure that filled the desires of King Francois I. For a hunting lodge, it is the largest Chateau in the Loire Valley.

Removable Handles Alberto Vasquez for IDEA Groups When performing all sorts of complex operations in the kitchen it is important to have a set of safe instruments to work with in this fairly dangerous environment, surrounded by hot ovens and sizzling frying pans. The tools used need to be simple but with plenty of usability. This set of newly designed instruments by Alberto Vasquez has removable handles that are special made with refractory silicone material that can handle 300-400 Celsius which makes it okay to be place inside the oven. The red clip fixes the handle when it is closed, made in the same material but different color. The clip is styled so it’s easy for cleaning with water and detergent spray. There is a metal part inside the silicone to brace the handle, this metal part has concave incisions in its form therefore it won’t move in the silicone when you shake the pot.
Tech & Accessory News - Gadgetmac Talk about a unique concept for an aluminum iPhone 5 case. Mod-3's minimalist Radius case for the iPhone 5 is the G-string of all aluminum cases. The concept behind the Radius is that it's designed to cover up less of the iPhone 5's design, while protecting every critical contact point. The Radius's unique and lightweight aluminum exoskeleton design covers very little in order to prevent any potential signal loss caused by the metal material, whilst maintaining the original design of the iPhone 5's brilliant thin construction. Each corner is lined with anti-scratch lining that'll provide vibration absorption. As much as we like the ultra-thin design, we fear the Radius will pose an uncomfortable grip with all of its industrial exposed metal screws around the back.
As Ink Remains // BLOG Guys, it’s Fall. And can I just say that it’s been the most beautiful Fall… The air is perfectly crisp, the sunshine is still strong, and layering is at an all time high (layers are probably how I like to dress the best. Be it an onion, I am it!) And although we’ve now been dealt with sunsets at 6:30 instead of 9pm, I am pretty darn content. Summer was hard to part with, especially since I felt like I never really had the chance to experience it (being in the office a bit more than I ought to be.)
