Amplifiear: Better sound for iPad

Array
Gear  |  Projects
The lightweight and recyclable plastic ear was conceived by Evan Clabots. He created it because the back-facing speaker of the iPad has less than optimal sound. It will enhance your iPad’s integrated speaker. It works by redirecting and reflecting the sound of the iPad through a Mickey Mouse ear-shaped cup. Amplifiear was launched as a Kickstarter project, and you’ll need to pledge at least $15(USD) to get yours.

Protect your floor with Chair Socks, by Leanne, Adventuregurl on Ravelry.
Leanne wrote, ”The real inspiration behind the Flashdance Chair socks was the cheap, stick-on felt floor protector circles I kept buying from the Dollar Store, that always peeled off after a month or so. The answer to all my problems is usually knitting, and this case was no different. I set out to whip up some ‘socks’ for my chairs, only they didn’t end up being short, like the crocheted floor protectors your Grandma had. They were more like knee-highs or legwarmers! As a true child of the 80’s, when I think Legwarmers, I think “Flashdance”. No one rocked the legwarmers like Jennifer Beals…‘She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor’.”

Hexagonal Pewter Stool Molded From Beach Sand

Gear  |  Projects
By Max Lamb
"Inspired by a childhood spent on the beaches of Cornwall building castles, boats and tunnels in the sand, I decided to return to my favourite beach at Caerhays on the south coast of Cornwall to produce a stool using a primitive form of sand-casting. Molten pewter was poured into a sand mould sculpted directly into the beach by hand, and once cooled the sand was dug away to reveal a pewter stool."
