Designer Profiles

"Yes this does look like it might have been "inspired" (to put it lightly) by Ray Eames' famous Walnut Stools – but the ability to inject your profile into the object's design is enough of a twist to make these Turn Your Head "Pirolettes" worth mentioning." [via inhabitat]

Gizmodo Japan: Auto door

Gizmodo Japan: Auto door: " Cleanliness, efficiency, compactness, cool-factor for a variety of reasons, automatic doors have become a standard feature of Japanese shops. While the typical sliding star-trek style design has proven itself, the tanaka auto door aims to improve upon a good concept. This new design entails strips equipped with infrared sensors that open to the approximate shape of the person or object passing through, minimizing entry of dust, pollen, and bugs while keeping precious air-conditioning in."

Liquid Ass: It's Not Perfume

Liquid Ass: "Buy a bottle of this and your whole housecan smell like my chair on these hot August days! Liquid Ass has genuine Butt Crack Flava and is apparently sure to clear out a girl’s locker room (??). Not sure the preoccupation with clearing young ladies out of enclosed spaces, but both StrangeNewProducts and the manufacturers attempt to scare girls away with Liquid Ass. Is there something else to this compound that someone isn’t telling us? Is Liquid Ass a nickname?" [via Gizmodo]

Top 10 dot-com flops

"The most astounding thing about the dot-com boom was the obscene amount of money that was spent. Zealous venture capitalists fell over themselves to invest millions in Internet start-ups; dot-coms blew millions on spectacular marketing campaigns; new college graduates became instant millionaires (albeit on paper) and rushed out to spend it; and companies with unproven business models executed massive IPOs with sky-high stock prices. Of course, we all know what eventually happened to this world. Few of these companies actually made enough money to recoup that cash, and when their investors fled to the hills, these start-ups died dramatic deaths. These are the celebrity victims of the new-economy bust." See the list.

Caught On Tape: Fainting Goats

"They're some of Tennessee's best-known creatures: the fainting goats of Marshall County.

Like any proud parent, farmer Gene McNutt says his "kids" have a hidden talent - and it's unique enough that the county has built an entire festival around it. The Goats, Music and More Festival is expected to bring throngs to the area the weekend of October 11th.

McNutt says the condition that causes his goats to become stiff-legged and keel over doesn't hurt the animals, but it has made them a tourist attraction. Whenever they're startled the goats just drop and, after a few minutes on the ground, eventually regain their equilibrium."
