Lock Cup – Anti-Theft Coffee Cup. Are you tired of others stealing your coffee cup? Well now there’s a solution. The Lock – Cup has a hole which prevents most people from using it. Only the owner of the cup can use his/hers shaped key to close the hole.

Making tea, though easy to do, is also time consuming. Once you pour the hot water into the cup, you must patiently hover over it, waiting for the tea to steep. Well, the Penguin Tea Timer happily does the waiting for you.
Place your tea cup under the beak and set it to the desired time. As you turn the timer dial, the beak lowers the tea into the hot water. When time is up, a bell sounds and the penguin automatically lifts his beak, removing the tea bag from the water.

    Re: the toilet lid lifter… I cured my husband of leaving the lid up by putting an extra thick fuzzy lid cover on it, along with an extra thick tank lid cover. He had to hold the lid up while he went, else it would drop closed. After a year (he’s a bit thick), he got in the habit of lowering the lid when done.

    I believe the PeaceMaker was invented by a middle schooler on Long Island for a science project. I’m glad to see he’s making a buck on it.

    The thing about the scissors with the laser is that you could make a mark on both sides of the paper and keep it lined up the whole way along, so you could see if the laser went off course.
    Did I explain that right?

    Toilet lid lifter a great idea. No more pheasants in your house leaving the toilet lid up. Have trying to invent an idea for years. Can never understand why people can never put a seat or lid down after them.

    I really don’t get how a freakin laser on scissors would help you cut better. If your hand moves the laser will too!!!!

    I don’t need a giant remote. I need one with a trucker chain on it so it’s always with me!

    That’s a cool toaster. I need one of those.

    I can think of a few more phrases I might add to the traveller’s t-shirt. 😛 Depending on where you’re travelling, you might cause an internationals incident with it though! :)

    I have a banana box for my son to take to school, it’s great! It really does fit most bananas, unless they are very straight or huge! It stops his bananas getting squashed with his school books & is a source of great amusement amongst his friends!!

    The ladder idea is a cryin’ shame. Did it ever occur to the designer that you may need to stand on the same rung with both feet?? Never mind having to stand on one rung and lean to the same side you are standing on… Whoever uses this ladder better have good workers comp insurance!! Nice try, but no thanx. I like having the use of all my limbs!

    Very cool website, I want my Zacky!!! I have a new grandson I will be buying that one for. I sure would like the mug with the cookie holder as well for gift giving.

    People steal my empty coffee cup all the time… not when it has coffee in it… why the hell would someone want to drink someone else’s coffee? but the idea behind bringing my own cup is that i get a nice china one which is nice to drink from and comfortable to hold…. that one is a cool idea, but it looks like it’s too thick to me… i guess it’s a matter of perference. It woudl really suck if the key started to wear out or wasn’t put in correctly though haha. I don’t know how the banana one works – most of the bananas i buy vary significantly in shape and size, especially since most of the banana crops in Aust got wiped out and we had to start importing inferior, tiny bananas. everything else is cool… that baby thing is particularly interesting… perhaps it could be used to keep pabies on their side.. which might help to stop SIDS! cool :)

    I read about the banana thing in Make, a magazine. It’s designed to fit 90% of bananas. So, it’s not really that useless. Unless you happen to have the odd banana out of ten. D: Then it is sad.

  18. Jimny Cricket

    They just didn’t show the one designed for left-handers. They do make them. They put the handle on the other side.

  19. Lieser

    I want that see through toaster O_o. Though the bread in the example doenst look very tasty :(

    Also you still need the rightly curved banana for the banana guard. Probably most banana’s wont fit..
    The ‘Lock-cup’ seems usefull, but why would someone steal an empty coffee-cup, they’d probably only take a cup with coffee in it, and you cant lock it then.
    @ Penguin-tea-timer: Like making tea would take that much time..
    And wouldnt the Laser scissors only make a small dot on the paper? If so, the dot will turn as you turn the scissors and thus not help at all.

    The other things seem very sweet. I’d buy them if I had the money 😀

    The cups are available in right OR left handed. You are looking at the right handed, the left is opposite!

  21. Jimbo

    The mug isn’t designed for left and right handers, it’s designed for right handed people. If a left-handed person were to use it, the biscuits would fall out. If there were a sliding base so when you twist it, both sides are closed, twist more, both sides open, then it would truly be a left/right handed mug, and also, there would be no chance of losing your cookies.

    Very cool stuff!

    I have found marvellous shopping bags – made totally from PURE JUTE
    (no cotton! no plastic! no leather!), i.e. totally safe for the climate. It’s not a new design but a good idea to help the global climate to recover. You get them at

    “But I wonder how one can prevent biscuits from falling down when sipping the tea. lol”

    …drink from the side opposite the cookies.

    Like the “ILUMINATING CAR SLIPPERS” though I would be a little too old for them. All the rest will end up in a cupboard for gadgets never used, that modern ladder could prove useful, as long as I was not wearing the slippers.
