…Nau wants you to practice organizational origami?

Nau Fluent Stash

The Fluent Stash by Nau is made for “organizational origami”.

With its die-cut wool felt design, the Stash is designed to keep your electronics, toiletries, ninja stars, or anything else that you want to keep close at hand organized and ready to go at a moments notice.

With three stash pockets and a zip-secured mesh pocket, it can either be hung for easy access, or folded back on itself so that it’s free-standing.

…It’s Things Thursday: Reclaimed Hot Water Bottle Bag?

Reclaimed Hot Water Bottle Bag

The Reclaimed Hot Water Bottle Bag is an interesting way to add reused products to your daily wardrobe for the betterment of the planet.

The bag, which features a reclaimed hot water bottle used during the 1960s by the ‘Bundeswehr’, or German Federal Defense Force, also uses recycled truck tarp for the body, and a clasp to keep everything together.

It’s green fashion, and if you don’t mind adding a little history to your bags, it comes with a great story to tell as well.

…Zippers can hurt?

Things That Hurt

Kidrobot and Shane Jessup teamed up for these “Things That Hurt” zipper pulls, and I wish it was colder here so that I could adorn my jackets, hoodies and bags with these very painful accessories.

Each limited edition piece is made of vinyl, and easily clasps on to your zipper for colorful pulling power.

…Brian Lam doesn’t like Halo 3 fanboys?

Halo 3 Logo

Gizmodo’s Brian Lam is apparently a big fan of controversy, as he has stirred up quite a bit of it with his latest antics.

To promote the release of Halo 3, Microsoft sent select bloggers (Somehow, I didn’t make the list.) a swag bag that was filled with extremely cool Halo stuff; including an Xbox 360 Legendary Edition, a Master Chief helmet with the game inside, various accessories, and more.

After receiving the sweet bag full of swag, Brian posted an unboxing video on Gizmodo that was given a less than warm welcome by Halo fans because of the way he handled the stuff. Some felt that he ‘tossed around’ his free goodies in a way that showed disrespect for what he was given, and they were less than thrilled by the way Brian appeared to throw away things that he was given for free, even though they would have given an arm and a leg for any of it.

To show their feelings, comments from the fanboys soon flooded in, and a death threat or two was given out.

In response, Brian replied to many of the comments in a rather stand-offish way, and then removed the video.

Skip forward a day, and Brian again posted a video of the Halo 3 swag, but this time, he was did a rebag of it. He goes through all of the stuff, and carefully explains each thing as he puts it neatly into the bag.

Then he throws the bag out of the window of his apartment.

Then he announces the ending of the game.

Just like that. No spoiler warning, no sign of impending doom. Just an unleashing of one of the worst spoilers in the history of spoilers.

Some found it funny, while others felt like the victims of a shock and awe attack.

More comments followed, and the battle now rages on between the fanboys and the spoiler fans.

Which side are you on?

Side note: Interestingly enough, the video was titled “halo3fanboyseatshit_gawker.flv when it was on the Gizmodo site.

*Spoiler Warning: The following video contains the ending of Halo 3*

Artist Felix Beck created a non-visual graffiti project called Soundbombs, “innocuous-looking 6-inch plastic shells that broadcast short clips (lines from Shakespeare, flatulence, or anything else you record) to unwitting passersby”. He doesn’t sell them, but instead takes applications, and prospective users must tell him where they will use it and how much they’re willing to pay. Get loud.
