Kawamura-Ganjavian has created the Ostrich pillow — perfect for napping just about anywhere. Imagine the possibilities on a plane, in your office, outside in the park…
Since we have been working more and more hours, we certainly need some time to rest. Most cultures have not yet included “siesta” time into the workday, but I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that a power nap is actually very beneficial to productivity and focus.
“It is neither a pillow nor a cushion, nor a bed, nor a garment, but a bit of each at the same time. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates our head and hands (mind, senses and body) for a few minutes, without needing to leave our desk.”
Nintendo Greece has apparently decided that selling its customers a renovated, three-dimensional version of the best game ever made isn’t a sweet enough treat. The official Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3Dpage on Nintendo.gr has revealed that folks who pre-order the game through Nintendo will receive a plethora of bonuses, including a keychain, baseball cap, 3DS cover, an actual ocarina and — get this — a canister of Deku tree seeds. (We hear that if you plant them, actual sentient shrubs come out of the ground.)
No pre-order bonuses for the U.S. have been announced, but needless to say, the bar’s been set pretty high. If we don’t get a pouch of replica rupees, or at the very least, a remote-controlled Bombchu, we’re going to be extremely disappointed.
Sure, it may seem like any old Formula 1 steering wheel, but take a closer look. See that big red button sitting on the left side, just begging to be pressed? That, friends, would be a boost button, capable of giving this Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid racer an extra burst of acceleration. Unlike most battery powered hybrids, both the 911 GT3 R and the 918 RSR run on an inertial flywheel that’s spun by the momentum generated whenever the car brakes. All it takes is one tap of the boost button, however, for that momentum to be instantly converted into a potent jolt of KITT-like horsepower.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., Nintendo released a retread of Super Mario All-Stars. Now, working with Nintendo, Converse is releasing some Mario-themed goods to aid in your treading.
This July, Converse will offer special edition Chuck Taylor All-Star shoes in two styles, with tiled Mario sprites against either a white or black canvas. Even the star on the All-Star logo gets a Mario makeover. Unfortunately, these kicks have only been announced for Japan, so it may be difficult for you to look thiscool. (via Joystiq)
