Kor’s Hydration Veesel

Hmm, I think this is the prettiest water bottle I’ve ever seen.

The streamlined bottles are totally free of bisphenol-A (BPA), the toxic leach in the ubiquitous polycarbonate bottles, thanks to a specially formulated compound called Eastman Tritan™. Safety first, indeed. But, it’s simply, the best-looking water bottle on the market. We love the crystal clear shell, inspired by the organic beauty of blown glass. The “no-worry cap” swivels open at the hinge with a touch of the button, and a special disk inside the top allows you to slip in a message or image to motivate or amuse you with each gulp. The wide mouth is large enough for ice cubes, while designed to minimize splashing. The integrated handle allows for comfy carrying. Made in North America.

Kuvert Travel Bags

How cool are these? And they fold flat for storage, which is just perfect.

The world in a bag. Sporty, casual and simple, the new KUVERT travel bags are the perfect companion for shopping, sports, weekends, parenting and travel. The unique look is the result of a ground-breaking use of custom-coated polyester fabric: each bag is cut out of a single piece, folded and welded along the edges. This allows the bags to fold flat for storage, yet the engineered expansion is inrivalled in spaciousness. The zippers run in both directions all the way to the base for easy packing and unpacking, and the carrying strap is removable. Kuvert bags are sturdy, water-proof and lightweight – sure to stand by you during your most exciting adventures.

Bottle Cap Tripod

This is exactly the kind of thing you don’t think you’ll need until you do.

This provides a solution to the issue that’s probably as old as the camera itself: What to use as a tripod when you don’t lug a tripod around? It’s easy, this little Bottle Cap Tripod slides onto the vast majority of national and international water caps, the universal adaptor fits onto pretty much every camera and the little hinge allows the little baby to swivel gently. That’s it you are done. Whether it’s the family picture, that special night shot or anything else that requires a tripod, the solution is in your pocket from now on.

Optimus Mini by Art.Lebedev

This looks like it would be a fun gadget to mess around with…the only problem I’d have is picking which 3 functions to choose.

3 completely controllable buttons allow you to assign pretty much any function to this sweet little device. Your iTunes controls, or your stock prices, or your communication settings that show you whether you have new mail or a new IM… What got us excited though was the fact that it was hacked and can now even play video.
Don’t be alarmed, the buttons of today’s mini keyboard have a resolution of 96×96 pixel and are huge compared to yesterday’s and with the included configurator software that works on a Mac and a PC, they are a breeze to set up!

Versatile Cashmere 2-in-1 Gloves

It’s not even cold where I live and I’m already sort of obsessed with gloves and arm warmers. Sorry.

I have my doubts on how likely I would be to hang on to a coffee sleeve, but I can’t argue with making your coffee or tea to-go a little more special by using this instead of a cardboard one. It’s a cute idea.
