Throwback knives. Who would've guessed. These ceramic blades are inspired by rudimentary cooking tools used by neolithic man. I don't think you can go wrong with steel blades and nice safe wooden handles, but apparently designer Matthias Kaeding would beg to differ.
So they look neat, but really, I don't see...the point? God I'm on fire today.
These are prototypes I guess, as there is no word on a release on any of the sites I visited.
My favorite USB gadget since the monkey handwarmers I discovered last winter. This is, in fact, an operable chainsaw powered via USB port. The 3/8" saw chain is capable of sawing through real wood and, one would assume, flesh and bone. Hooray for crazy office toys. According to the manufacturer:
"Cut through different types of wood as you would with a full-sized electric chainsaw. Saw chain (included) delivers fast cutting speed with good efficiency. i.Saw guide bar is also compatible with most third-party saw chains."
No offense to the USB missile launcher set, but I think you've been outclassed here. This new office tool must certainly be...a cut above the rest (Dr. Evil pinky touch to the lower lip)?
The iSaw is 15.2 x 5.8 x 5.1 inches and weighs 8.2 lbs, so this is a very real, no-fucking-around chainsaw, and will be shipped in the fall of 2009.
Available for pre-order here for $59.95 plus shipping.
Maybe you will find it here. Admittedly it's a long shot, and if we're going to get all existential, we might as well give up now because you won't find meaning on this page. You may, however, inadvertently discover something new that makes you think, or wonder, or dream of a new place, person, or thing. I like to call that a stimulus.
Life can be a taxing, trying, tedious exercise, but it doesn't have to be. Introduce some stimulation into your life. Do something you shouldn't. Say something you wouldn't. Make today remarkable for even one thing, and you will have a far more interesting tomorrow, and it only gets better the longer you can keep it up.
This is not the Grail, but it will always offer content that will make you laugh, or create, or disagree, or find a better way. Stimulation and innovation are what we eat and drink, and we will search the length and breadth of this digital universe to bring them right here, just for you.
