Adults Only Vending Machine?

A vending machine that gives out free puddings to adults, but none to children sounds like something dreamed up by Roald Dahl. But the iSample machine, a collaboration between Kraft and Intel, is designed to do exactly that – and is currently under trial in Chicago and New York. The machine uses a biometric scanner to ‘read’ the age and gender of people standing in front of it, and will serve adults, but refuse children. The two machines are on trial in Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium and New York’s South Street Seaport. The iSample is designed to offer free samples of Kraft’s new Temptations jelly – a dessert marketed at adults. It’s clearly a promotional tool – but the biometric technology behind it is serious, and already under test by companies such as Gillette.” w/ photos

The Laundry Room Valet

This is the space saving laundry center that keeps dirty clothes sorted and provides storage for clean garments and laundry supplies. The valet has three canvas bags that keep colors, whites, and delicates separate and organized. An integrated garment bar is ideal for holding ironed clothes or allowing delicates to air-dry, while the top-mounted shelf accommodates folded clothes and towels or laundry detergents and fabric softeners. The valet is made from bamboo that has been kiln-dried in a 320º F oven and carbonized for one hour to remove excess moisture and stabilize the wood, creating a stronger bamboo that resists cracks and splinters.” w/ photo
