Home Theatre Screen Disguised as a Bookshelf
Now, here's a great idea: Why not disguise a projection screen as a bookshelf, and then place a few other identical-looking shelves nearby as decoys? That's just what Italian designer Matteo Ragni has dreamed up here, trying to cross that bridge between a dedicated home theatre room and a multi-use space that might double as a reading room, too. The only problem we see? If this is going to be a big enough screen, it's going to amount to one tremendously long shelf. This example is 170 centimetres, or 66.9 inches wide. That's not going to give you much of a big-screen experience.
Platinum Club Treadmill
If we could ever summon up the strength to go exercise (which would then give us more strength), we'd want to do so on one of these Platinum Club Series Treadmills with a USB port for your iPod. Just hook up your iPod via the standard iPod cable, and you can scroll through playlists, watch videos or just provide power for your player while you run. Not only that, there's a virtual trainer and USB compatibility so you can save your workout data onto a thumb drive to take home. If this weren't $7,999 we'd get one for ourselves.
