I did a thing.
‘Screw You’ launched at Dutch Design Week 2013 is a series of 3D printed shapes that allow PET bottles to be screwed into place, creating new functional and/or decorative designs.
The ‘vase-maker’ above is €129, excluding bottles and flowers. Superb value, you’ll no doubt agree.
Viscous liquid condiment lovers – the era of bottle-pounding is at an end.
Behold – LiquiGlide™
MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith and his team of mechanical engineers and nano-technologists at the Varanasi Research Group spent two months devising LiquiGlide, a ‘super-slippery’ coating which makes the insides of the bottle so frictionless that the sludgy goo inside just slides out like water. The results are astonishing – and any burger and chips fan out there should prepare to be amazed.
