58 Fun and Creative Tea Infusers

If you’re a tea lover, why not find new and fun ways to enjoy your tea. Tea Infusers can be a great way to bring some creativity and fun into infusing your tea. In this collection we’ll be showcasing 58 Fun and Creative Tea Infusers!

A tea infuser is a device in which loose, dried tea leaves are placed for steeping or brewing, in a mug or a teapot full of hot water; it is often called a teaball or tea maker, and sometimes a tea egg. The tea infuser gained popularity in the first half of the 19th century. By the time of Queen Victoria, no respectable British household would be without one.

Tea infusers enable one to easily steep tea from fannings and broken leaf teas. Some infusers are removed along with the tea leaves from the pot, while so called shut-off infusers are left in the pot after the brewing process is complete.

Solar-Powered Glowing Bicycle Path In Netherlands Inspired By Van Gogh’s Starry Night

Daan Roosegaarde is a Dutch designer who has made a creative and innovative bike path which glows. At night the bike path illuminates by glowing pebbles and LED lights. The lights were created to look like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting. In today’s article we’ll be looking at 16 images of Solar-Powered Glowing Bicycle Path In Netherlands Inspired By Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

The bike path is a kilometer long and was built using glow in the dark technology and solar powered LED lights. The path is located in Brabant, which was the birthplace of Van Gogh. The beautiful Van Gogh inspired lights form swirls and glowing forms found on the surface of the path will help bike riders stay on track at night time.

31 Clever and Creative Bed Covers

When we go to bed we rarely pay attention to the Bed Covers. If you want to get serious about bed sheets and want to have some fun, this collection of 31 Clever and Creative Bed Covers will showcase how bed covers don’t have to be boring!

Scroll down and take a look and some crazy and creative bed covers! Which one would you like in your bedroom?

Did you know?

  1. In most societies people sleep during the night, but in very hot climates they may sleep during the day. During Ramadan, many Muslims sleep during the day rather than at night and people working nights try to sleep in the daytime.
  2. Around 3400 BC Egyptian pharaohs had their beds moved off the ground and slept on a raised surface. Roman Empire mattresses were stuffed with wool, feather, reeds or hay. The beds were decorated with paint, bronze, silver, jewels and gold. During the Renaissance, mattresses were stuffed with straw and feathers and then covered with silks, velvets or satin material. The arrival of the 18th century brought bed frames made from cast iron, and mattresses that were made of cotton. The 19th century saw the invention of the bed spring, also called the box spring. The 20th century brought the inner spring mattress, futon, water bed (starting in the 1960s), air mattresses, foam rubber mattresses and pillows.

31 Fun and Creative Ring Designs

Rings are usually seen as circular band around someone’s finger, they’re usually a standard design with some containing stones and gems. But what happens when you go out of the boundaries and want to create a weird and creative ring which is different from the rest? In today’s post we’ll be looking at 31 Fun and Creative Ring Designs.

Strictly speaking a normal ring is a finger ring (which may be hyphenated); other types of rings worn as ornaments are earrings, bracelets for the wrist, armlets or arm rings, toe rings and torcs or neck rings, but except perhaps for toe rings, the plain term “ring” is not normally used to refer to these.

Rings are traditionally usually in metal but can be of almost any material: metal, plastic, stone, wood, bone, glass, or gemstone to name a few. They may be set with a gem or stone of some sort, which is often a precious or semi-precious gemstone such as diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald, but can also be of almost any material. The custom of giving and receiving finger rings dates back over approximately 6,000 years. Tracing the exact history of this practise is difficult.

40 Strange and Weird Inventions

Inventions are usually a good thing, but sometimes people can invent strange and weird inventions. Most of us would love to run our own business and invent something that will benefit everyone. But sometimes thinking of ideas can be harder than you think. In today’s post we’ve found 40 Strange and Weird Inventions based around technology.

An invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition or process. The invention process is a process within an overall engineering and product development process. It may be an improvement upon a machine or product, or a new process for creating an object or a result. An invention that achieves a completely unique function or result may be a radical breakthrough. Such works are novel and not obvious to others skilled in the same field.

Some inventions can be patented. A patent legally protects the intellectual property rights of the inventor and legally recognizes that a claimed invention is actually an invention. The rules and requirements for patenting an invention vary from country to country, and the process of obtaining a patent is often expensive.

35 Creative and Weird Clock Designs

Clocks are usually something many of us take for granted when we look at the time. We rarely take time out to see the design of the clock and how it works. Let’s face it, most clock designs are boring and hold little character. Having a creative and weird clock can spice up your living space and bring new and interesting mood if designed well.

The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day; the lunar month; and the year. Devices operating on several physical processes have been used over the millennia. The evolution of the technology of clocks continues today.

In this article we’ve gathered 35 Creative and Weird Clock Designs you probably haven’t seen before, these clock designs are super cool and bring a whole new meaning to clocks.

The 11+ World Clock reinterprets the traditional functionality of the clock by creating a unique and playful interaction between the user and the design. Although the face of the World Clock may not seem out of the ordinary, its cylindrical body allows it to display 24 different time zones via a clever rolling mechanism. Independently working hands allow the clock to be quickly rolled back to any of its 24 time zones, while immediately transitioning back to the local time. (Designer: cloudandco)

The “Clock”

More than 150 individual clockworks are put together to become one clock. Reading clockwise, the time being is visible through a word and readable by the completeness of the word, 12 words from “one” to “twelve”. (Designed by Christiaan Postma)

(Designed by Rafael Morgan)

Whatever Clock

Tik Tak Clock

Designed by Habitat

Sundial Clock

Manifold Clock

A wall mounted clock with a manifold that connects the two hands to create a 3D movement. At any given moment the manifold is located in a different position and different parts are seen.

27 Weird and Creative Beds

We spend a lot of our time sleeping, so it’s no surprise that we need to choose the right best. In this article we’ll be looking at some weird and creative beds. Picking an ordinary looking bed is what most of us do, but did you know that beds are being redesigning by some cool industrial designers? We’ve taken a look at some surreal and crazy must see bed designs you might consider sleeping on.

A University of California, San Diego psychiatry study of more than one million adults found that people who live the longest self-report sleeping for six to seven hours each night. Another study of sleep duration and mortality risk in women showed similar results. Other studies show that “sleeping more than 7 to 8 hours per day has been consistently associated with increased mortality,” though this study suggests the cause is probably other factors such as depression and socioeconomic status, which would correlate statistically. It has been suggested that the correlation between lower sleep hours and reduced morbidity only occurs with those who wake naturally, rather than those who use an alarm.

Some of these beds look pretty comfy, while others look completely outrageous. Ultimately these beds are not the norm but showcase some interesting concepts. Which one would you like to own?

In today's article we've focused on History's Weirdest Inventions which failed to make the grade and live on to the present day.

The idea for an invention may be developed on paper or on a computer, by writing or drawing, by trial and error, by making models, by experimenting, by testing and/or by making the invention in its whole form. Brainstorming also can spark new ideas for an invention. Collaborative creative processes are frequently used by engineers, designers, architects and scientists. Co-inventors are frequently named on patents.

History shows that turning the concept of an invention into a working device is not always swift or direct. Inventions may also become more useful after time passes and other changes occur. For example, the parachute became more useful once powered flight was a reality.

Sit back and take a look at these 20 of History's Weirdest Inventions!

30 Awesome and Innovative Bookshelf Designs

Many of us grab books from shelves without even thinking of the Bookshelf Design it’s been sitting on. When walking to a room full of books most of us find that impressive, books contain worlds of knowledge and story telling. But sometimes Bookshelf Designs can take your attention over the books, if they’re designed with a unique and innovative way.

A bookcase, or bookshelf, is a piece of furniture, almost always with horizontal shelves, used to store books. It may be fitted with glass doors.  A bookcase consists of a unit including two or more shelves which may not all be used to contain books or other printed materials. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case. In rooms entirely devoted to the storage of books they may be permanently fixed to the walls and/or floor.

In today’s post we’ll be looking at 30 Awesome and Innovative Bookshelf Designs, these bookshelf designs are very stylish with different ways of turning a usually boring concept into something new and exciting!
