Sugru Fix-It-All Kit

Hooray! Sugru is now available at MoMA, and that means more people can fix and modify all sorts of things with this magic stuff.

Grain Audio PWS Wireless Speaker

Another wireless speaker, yawn... but wait, the very fact that it's not neon orange or some other outrageous color makes it seem more grown up and mature, and that certainly won't hurt your image, am I right? Solid walnut wood helps deliver a warmer sound than other plastic speakers, and, with the addition of neutral graphite speaker grills and buttons, you have an altogether pleasing package. The Grain Audio PWS ...Read more

What is it?

Hmm, what in the world could this small, ramp-like item be? It's made from natural cork and is about the size of a medium sized notepad (for lack of a better comparison). Any guesses? Pay attention to the incline, ribbing, and bumper at the end... would you be able to store, say, longer, flat things on it somehow? It's a Board Stopper for your cutting boards.
