Over the past couple of months during my usual Sunday RSS browsing, I’ve come across various products and concepts that would greatly help people in their daily lives. I’ve put them all together in a new unique everyday design post for you! So let’s see what we’ve got.

Good for holding other items too!

I love the idea behind this. Not only does it allow you to create a cup holder in almost any place, but it also saves space on the actual table it’s attached to. No more risk of knocking a drink over or leaving ring marks. As the pictures show, you don’t have to use it to hold drinks either, it’s just as useful for placing your phone or any other similar items. You buy a DrinKlip from their site here. Their facebook page also shows off a new version with a more solid holder area.

Charging the 0 Point Ruler

I wish I had owned one of these awesome rulers during high school. The 0 Point Ruler uses a ‘pressure-sensitive touchscreen strip’ to feel where your pencil touches the side, making it your starting point. A lot easier than always starting at the edge. What I’m really impressed about though is the recharging of the ruler by whirling it around using your finger. A really wonderfully thought out design. See more about the ruler here.

When I get a home of my own I might consider investing in one of these (or maybe a few, I have so many books >_<). Using a wing nut as a bookend, you can securely sit your collection upright – whatever size that may be. Simple and practical. Read about the work here. There is also a custom wing nut version as well that you can check out.

Designed to look like a splash of water, this funnel allows you to effortlessly pour drinks into bottles, but that’s not all! My favourite thing about this is actually it’s secondary use as a drying rack when placed upside down. I hope I see one of these to buy when I head over to Japan next year! Read about where to buy them here.

That’s all for this time round, now to go on the search for other items! Have you seen any lately?
