Grilliput Camping Set – smallest and most portable BBQ

grille

The smallest and most portable BBQ on the planet. Is this or is this not the most brilliant invention ever invented by someone who goes around inventing things? The Grilliput, with a literary nod to Mr. Swift, is a travel BBQ that fits in your pocket! Aptly named the Grilliput, this ridiculously compact camping grill is about the cleverest piece of design we’ve seen in an age. At only 29cm long and 2.2cm wide you can stash it anywhere, and when you’re feeling peckish open it up into a 23×26cm BBQ, plonk the Firebowl underneath it and hey presto! No more lugging hefty BBQs out to the park, into the woods or down to the beach, just pop the diminutive Grilliput in your back pocket and you’re sorted. Made from high quality stainless steel it’s completely dishwasher friendly, and even has a cleaning groove notched in it so you can scrape off the grill before you pack it up in its tiny solid tube.

The Firebowl is a great companion to the Grilliput. It is a mobile, compact and collapsible hearth with 4 stilted feet, enabling you to light a fire anywhere without scorching the earth. The adjustable fins also allow you to create a chimney effect so that heat can be directly aimed at the desired point. The Grilliput and Firebowl are innovative space miracles for minimalists, and quite simply the best mobile BBQ kit ever to hit the planet.

Buy the Grilliput and Firebowl seperately or as part of a set. Either way they’re sure to make your next camping trip a roaring success

Candle Carver

candle carver

This Candle Carver is a surprisingly fun little innovation that allows you to turn almost any fruit or vegetable into some mood lighting. “Why on God’s green earth would someone want to make a candle-holder out of a vegetable?”, we hear you reasonably ask. Think about it, though – it’s quirky, easy to do and can actually be very adaptable. So next time you’ve got one too many apples knocking around the fruit bowl (after you’ve gotten through your five a day, of course), just whip out the Candle Carver and effortlessly squeege out a perfectly sized hole for a tealight. Instant mood lighting! And yes, “squeege” is a real word.

The Candle Carver will do much more than just spruce up your perishables, though. You can scoop out enough matter to make a lovely vase, or even a floating candle-holder for a punch bowl. If it’s the sort of party that has punch, that is. Maybe you could even carve out enough to make a snazzy cocktail glass from a pineapple, go nuts! The possibilities are near-enough endless – if you can carve something out of it, chances are it’d look better with a tealight on top. Use apples, pears, squashes, mini pumpkins and just get twisting!

The Touchless Paper Towel Dispenser

touchless towel dispenser

This is the paper towel holder that dispenses a sheet with a wave of your hand, preventing cross contamination and conserving paper. When the dispenser’s infrared sensor is activated, it advances the roll until its optical scanner recognizes the sheet’s perforations. It then holds down the paper towel for you to tear off with one hand, preventing germs from being transferred to the unused sheets and keeping the roll from unraveling. The dispenser can be set to advance one sheet, two sheets, or even perforated half-sheets. Requires four C batteries that power the unit for up to one year. Red, Silver or White.

Ionator – turn your ordinary tap water into household cleaning juice

active ion cleaning

Watch Video

The Science Inside the ionator.

The ionator HOM™ and ionator EXP™ are virtually the only cleaning and sanitizing products in the world without chemical-related health warning labels. The technology driving the ionator products has been used for decades in food processing plants, four-star restaurants, and large hotels. We’ve simply taken this technology, miniaturized it, and made it affordable for everyday use.

1. Charging
A water cell applies a slight electrical charge to the tap water.

2. Transforming
The charged water passes through an ion exchange membrane, creating an oxygen-rich mixture of positive and negative nano-bubbles.

3. Cleaning
The ionized water now attracts dirt like a magnet and lifts it from the surface, enabling it to be easily wiped away.

Memory Foam Music Pillow

music pillow

Lying in bed and drifting off to sleep listening to your favourite music is heaven – be it whale song, the sound of waves breaking on the shore, or Born Slippy if you’re a bit strange. It’s not so much fun for your partner of course, and even less fun for you if, as inevitably happens, you end up throttling yourself on your headphone cord or wake up with aching ears from wearing ear buds too long. Enter the Sound Asleep Pillow Original and the new ergonomically designed, contour moulding Sound Asleep Memory Foam Pillow. Both are ingenious and comfortable pillows that have buried deep within them, a speaker. Inaudible to anyone except the dozer, (and even the princess who was so fussy about peas in her mattress wouldn’t be able to feel the speaker in her pillow) the pillows have a phone jack at one end that will plug into your iPod/MP3 player/radio, and play your music gently through the pillow. Now your partner can sleep in peace, and you can listen to whatever you like! Nodding off has never been so wonderfully self-indulgent.
