Computers have become a staple in nearly every home in America, and most are used every day. The only problem is that with every use it gets just a little dirtier. But a computer has all of those little nooks and crannies so what do you do about the crud? Buy a BuzzBrush obviously! It gets between the keys to remove lint, dust, food, and dead skin. Icky! Wait, this little goodie gets better though! Not only can it clean that sometimes disgusting keyboard, it comes with an attachment that allows you to clean the other electronic devices that get used in our daily lives. It cleans the screen of your computer, smart-phone, touch-screens, and any lcd screen. What a handy little gadget!
We are so plugged into things these days. We plug in phones or music players to charge and manage them. We plug in appliances to use them. We plug in extension cords to power tools at a distance. Sometimes we need to plug in extra plugs for all our things that are electronically powered. I’m sure we all own a power strip or two for that purpose. They’re rectangular plastic blocks, usually a white or cream color, with a glowing red switch on the end. You’ve seen one power strip, you’ve pretty much seen them all, right? Well, not exactly. It’s highly unlikely you have ever seen a Power Squid before.
The Power Squid is a squid-shaped plug board. Acting as the tentacles are bendable power sockets and the body possesses the breaker switch along with other functional and protective units. Some models have surge protection and power filters. The power cord of the Calamari edition-the most technologically customized and most expensive Power Squid-has a rotatable platform for flexibility in plugging into the wall. Available on powersquid.com, the products are sold a few different colors. All Squids are under lifetime warranty. The Calamari edition and the other costly cephalopods come with a $75,000 equipment insurance policy. This company strives for prompt delivery service. They do their best to ship orders received before noon (EST) on the same business day. At the most it will take about three business days to deliver.
The Power Squid is a product of Flexity LLC, a subsidiary of Trident Design LLC. They’re based out of Columbus, Ohio. Chris Hawker conceived the idea of the Power Squid in 2000 when he noticed a mess of cords underneath his stereo late at night. Hawker documents the process of bringing the Power Squid to life in a six-part blog series titled “The Song of the Power Squid: The Inside Story of the Life of an Invention”. In addition to this products history, he shares useful information surrounding the business of innovation. You can read these blogs on Trident-design.com.
You haven’t seen it all until you’ve seen the Power Squid! It has all the electrical capabilities of your typical power strip (if not more), but its sleekly designed for greater function. Get plugged into a Power Squid!
A major problem in most modern-day households is the identification of whose drink is whose. I can speak from past experience that this is something that has went on throughout time and didn’t seem to ever have an end in sight. The United States in particular is the largest purchaser of bottled water in the entire world, that should say something for itself. Around 70 million bottles of water are purchased daily in the U.S. and nearly 60 million of them end up in the trash. A contributing factor are those bottles thrown away because you simply don’t want to drink out of someone else’s bottle.
One rising company is changing the way we identify our bottles and making it easy and fun to keep track of which drink is yours! MiiBottle is a simple and easy to use system of identifying your bottle. You simply take one of their variously colored snap-on bottle identifiers and clip it onto the bottle with no hassle or instructions other than that needed. They also boast a neat dolphin design making it that much more entertaining just to regard a bottle as yours. But you may be wondering, what makes MiiBottle such a great company?
Well, for starters their products are made of 100% recycled material! It’s great to know that you have a product that you will actually use, but it makes it that much better to know that the product that you are using is made of recycled material! Another cool thing about this company is, they have solved an issue that is simple yet bothersome, and they have done so in a very innovative way!
We have had the opportunity to try these ourselves and they are as simple and easy to use as they look. You will notice that they have a firm snap around your bottles lid, so there are no worries about them falling off of your bottle. The colors are also very vibrant and look great, especially when there are multiple bottles using them! The packaging is simple and conveys the same overall idea of simplicity and problem solving and lets you know the true purpose of this life changing product, to simply make your everyday life easier, save you money on bottles you may’ve thrown away and provide a fun solution to an age old question, “Is that my bottle?” Now you will know, “Yes, it’s MiiBottle!”
