Pac-Man Oven Mitts

Thats it, I can retire from blogging now because the greatest geeky domestic tool has been invented.

Pac-Man Oven Mitts

From domestic goody guru Fred comes heat handling silicone mitts that will satisfy your inner geek while you cook. Best of all is that inside the mitts they are textured with a Pac-Man course for texture and extra geekness. These babies launch in mid-April for a steal at $15 a pop.

I have a birthday coming up in late April…I’m just sayin’ ;)

Kirby Cupcakes

Ok one guess as to where Im linking to in this blog. Go ahead….guess….yup you guessed it, gaming confectionery guru Snack or Die. This time Jocelyn gives us what might be my favorite creation yet…

Kirby Cupcakes

Not only adorable, but these cupcakes are low-fat! Man Kirby could sure use some low-fat cupcakes himself! Its a simple mix using the old trick of Diet-Sprite when mixing the cake batter to cut down on sugar. The Diet-Sprite also ads a nice fluffiness to the mixture. After baking the cupcakes like normal all you need is some cake decorating gel and two little M&Ms to create your little Kirby’s.

Its actually incredibly simple and thats what makes this recipe so wonderful, anyone even with the worst cake decorating skills could execute this confection. So no excuses for not making this deliciously geeky treat!

Tetris kitchen

Ive written about Tetris home geekery before (here and here) but I think Ive finally found the ultimate in Tetris domestic goodness. Behold….

Tetris Kitchen

Maybe this has been posted around the net before so pardon me if this is a late pass..but its new to me! Besides, something this awesome needs reposting. Inspired by the classic shapes of Tetris and the need for efficient clean space, designer June He created this geometric masterpiece. The kitchen is basically transformed into a jewelry box in which all the pieces pull out into place and hide away so it looks like a sleek tile wall when not in use.

The tiles could also be changed color wise to reflect whatever scheme you would like. I for one and such a fan of this because living in an urban area like San Francisco, space becomes a luxury…yet at the same time I am unwilling to give up a large kitchen in order to obtain more living room space. This design allows for both kitchen space and open room all with an effortlessly cool and minimalist appeal. Unfortunately this design is still in prototype, but when I hit the lottery and built my dream flat, you can bet my kitchen will look like this.

Wardrobe of Suitcases

The Dutch have done it again! The graduate show at Dutch design school, Design Academy Eindhoven, is showing Maarten De Ceulaer’s A Pile of Suitcases as part of Dutch Design Week.

“While the project seems simple enough—a wardrobe made from a grouping of suitcases—it evinces de Ceulaer’s peculiar philosophy of combining the poetic with the practical: “I try to base my designs on a strong, simple and pure concept… to question what I see around me, and translate that in an object. I think poetry, humour and communication of ideas are very important aspects of my designs, but at the same time I want to make useful and functional objects with that way of thinking.” A Pile of Suitcases wardrobe comes with “well-measured compartments” and “steel profiles [that] keep the pile firmly together.” In its construction, the piece responds to the very real needs of its user.”

Sign me up for one! I always love when furniture looks like one thing but is in fact another. Plus the retro feel of the suitcases is just too awesome.
