Great Inventions Cool Ideas

Personally I don’t have a wall calendar, but I know people who like them, and here is something for them. The Perpetual Wall Calendar - No.1 is a simple vintage 1970’s German-designed plastic perpetual wall calendar that looks awesome. Numbers and days of the week can be manually rotated to designate the proper day and date. The calendar measures 10.25″ in diameter and is in good overall vintage condition, but does show surface wear. This wall calendar is sold here.- Via - Swiss Miss


Designed by designer Jess Han the Numlock Handle is an innovative solution for those of you who want to enter your home without using keys. This design concept for a mechanical lock could be the ideal solution to the keyless lock problem. Numlock Handle is unlocked when you roll its four tumblers to the correct numbers, and then after you’ve gained entry it automatically jumbles up the tumblers to lock the door behind you. The idea is good especially if you have a room where you want to keep some valuable things, but to time consuming for the front door ( especially if you are in a hurry ). - Via - Dvice


HD Envy is a company that creates wall-mounted TV frames for both residential and commercial use.They took the concept to the next level with their Invidia Frames and the FastenEZ mounting system. Literally “fast and easy” to mount, the steel bracket system locks the frame in place and allows for easy removal for servicing the TV. Where you go with your design is limited only by your imagination. The Invidia line merely scratches the surface of what they can create when you order an HD Envy Custom TV Frame. Using the FastenEZ system HD Envy can attach pretty much anything but the kitchen sink to your flat screen TV!


Originally this concept was created to fill a need for a low-cost yet stylish home theater product. Complementing both traditional and contemporary decor, these TV frames provide a unique way to transform that ugly black monster on the wall into something complimentary of your taste and style. In a commercial setting, instead of staring at their black and silver plastic bezel, HD Envy TV frames allow for seamless brand cohesion. Why have the TV manufacturer’s name featured when instead you can have your brand/logo/decor on the very object that attracts everyone’s attention? HD Envy allows you a put a personal touch on what has previously been limited to ugly black or gray plastic bezels. Whether you choose to make a bold statement or blend technology with tasteful decor, HD Envy has the solution.


The architects and metal sculpture designers are Caliper Studios have outdone themselves with their product, Genetic Stair. The centerpiece in a duplex apartment on Manhattan, the Genetic Stair is an amazing fusion of engineering and sculpture; in particular an amazing feat considering the ridiculously complex and limiting building safety codes for construction in New York City. Developed first as a multifarious 3D model, this clean and well-suited stairway design brings a heavy touch of modernity to a simple, elegant interior space. It maybe hard to develop a sense of continuity with something so inventive in your living space, but as a useful sculptural piece it serves as an amazing achievement for Caliper Studios. - via
