Boby Trolley

You know when you see something so damn gorgeous, so timeless, so useful-looking (even though you're not entirely sure what you'd use it for)? It fits all of the aesthetic qualities you hold dear, the shapes and materials and versatility? And you see it in all the right places, from the permanent collections of MoMA and the Design Museum to the background of the rather fantastically-designed Oblivion? And you know, you just know, that you need it in your life?

Ladies and gentlemen, the B-Line Boby Trolley.

Tear Gun

After an altercation with a tutor, Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Yi-Fei Chen designed a gun that captures, freezes and fires her own tears – recently on display as part of Dutch Design Week. I'm not sure about the practicalities of this in an actual warzone, but I sure do like the brassy steampunk-minimalism design of the thing.
