Remoldable plastic using hot water to fix things

Remoldable plastic using hot water to fix things

Formcard

Backed this a few years ago on Indiegogo. Basically like Sugru but reusable. Has been useful a few times already.

Formcard is a handy, pocket sized card of strong, meltable bio-plastic that you can use to make, fix and modify the world around you. Just drop it in a cup of hot water and it's ready to use. Keep one in your wallet, toolbox or kitchen drawer so that it's always around when you need to use it.

Swiss bags+ made from truck tarps

Swiss bags+ made from truck tarps

Freitag

When I lost my wallet (also made from truck tarps) on my vacation in Madagascar, I was kind of excited to have an excuse to finally buy a product from Freitag. Read about the birth of Freitag.

In 1993, graphic designers Markus and Daniel Freitag were looking for a functional, water-repellent and robust bag to hold their creative work. Inspired by the multicolored heavy traffic that rumbled through the Zurich transit intersection in front of their flat, they developed a messenger bag from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes and car seat belts. This is how the first FREITAG bags took shape in the living room of their shared apartment – each one recycled, each one unique.

Ostrich Pillow

This is probably my favorite product. Always with me when traveling. People know me for being able to sleep anywhere and with the ostrich pillow it is even a bit more comfortable.

It all started with a dream, as so often happens with unexpected revolutions. Back in 2012, the world was suffering from a serious sleep deprivation. A clever device that would allow people to rest where they wanted, when they wanted to, needed to be invented.

Temporary tattoos from designer and illustrators

Temporary tattoos from designer and illustrators

Tattly

A great last minute present.

Tired of putting poorly designed temporary tattoos on her daughter’s arm, Tina Roth Eisenberg took matters into her own hands. After soliciting a dozen renowned artists and designers, hiring the first two team members, and learning what a temporary tattoo was actually made of, Tattly was born.

In July of 2011, Tattly launched online, featuring an all-star lineup of professional designers and illustrators. Starting with just a handful of designs, Tattly received thousands of orders from around the world.

At Tattly, we believe that great design and art can make people happy. We believe that quality products and great customer support are the only options. And we believe that, whether for a child or an adult, every Tattly should come with a smile.

Designed by professional artists who get a cut of every sale. Safe and non-toxic, printed with vegetable-based ink. Shipped with love out of Brooklyn, NY. FDA-compliant and fun for all ages.

Peace of mind, usability and beauty in one smartphone

Peace of mind, usability and beauty in one smartphone

iPhone

I've used the 3G, 4, 6 and now the Xr. The Xr finally has a battery that lasts a whole day, great camera, loud speakers, Live Photos, fast and water resistant. The three things I dislike are its size, no Force Touch and no Touch ID.
