The Iron Station

Gear  |  Design
The Iron Station from quirky is an ironing board that can simply insert the sleeves or the pant legs into the arms, and find a flat surface. Close the arms again, and you can iron the back of that shirt. Finally, clamp the collar between the arms and it lays flat, ready to iron. Watch the video. On the site, it says they’re “making it”, but we can’t quite figure out how to buy it.

Gear  |  Design
This bike concept, called the MOOBY by designer Madella Simone. MOOBY plays with the word mobility to show that this fun one-speed is up for the challenges of urban riding. It even offers a "paneled, modular system that makes it possible to easily re-skin your ride with personalized graphics." That means that you can change the look depending on your mood.
The hope: that more riders will be drawn to the fashionable style and opt for 2 wheels over 4!
