The Englishman Mr. Radley might have invented galoshes to keep his feet dry and to keep his rheumatism in check; we today have even more uses for them. When the weather suddenly turns bad and you don’t have that one pair of snow shoes that you always avoided to buy because winter was so short in your area. Well, if you are still reluctant to invest in a pair of shoes, here is a solution. In order to add more traction to your regular shoe soles, have a pair of Nordic Grip Galoshes which will just do that. These shoe covers can stretch over large pairs of shoes and are available in black and cyan colors and in three different sizes. You can pull them even over you dress shoes for added traction if you have to walk across the street to get to your office. The shoe covers will cost you around $55.

As the prices of high resolution HDTV flat screens have dropped in the last few years, they have been put to some unique and amazing applications. One of these is mounting them as virtual windows in rooms that lack natural light and view.

Every day, as you move through your home, you walk past light switches and outlets. It’s inevitable, homes just come with them, and for good reason.

Here’s yet another great project being pitched on KickStarter, the Lumio Folding Book Lamp. Lumio is a lamp that looks like a book when off; to turn it on, simply open the book and the pages are illuminated to give you light.

Bubble wrap, one of the most beautiful things to wrap things play with. I loved popping bubble wrap when I was a kid, and now that I’m a “grown up”, the feelings haven’t changed and I still love popping it as much as when I was a kid.

The Talk Bubble iPhone 5 case will be available this spring at Fred & Friends. Price [TBA]. Read More →
