…The Sorapot is the perfect teapot?

Sorapot

The Sorapot by Joey Roth has taken the design world by storm by combining an architectural shape and simple functionality into a teapot that “brings tea’s quiet beauty into sharp focus.

It’s made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone for long lasting good looks, and “articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way”.

In addition to good looks, the Sorapot also stays green with a sustainable approach to packaging, including post-consumer recycled cardboard and molded pulp, natural jute rope, and the avoidance of tape or staples. (See TreeHugger for more details on the packaging.)

If you agree that this just might be the perfect teapot, then head on over to the site with &179 in hand, and one can be yours.

…It’s Things Thursday: Flip Video?

Flip Video

The Flip Video is to the camcorder what the Eee PC is to the laptop: A stripped down, easy to use, and surprisingly functional version of its big brother.

Sporting a VGA quality sensor (read: YouTube ready) and 2GB of built-in memory, there are no tapes or memory cards required, and it connects to your computer with a built-in USB arm.

One-touch recording and software that allows you to easily edit and share videos means that it’s designed to capture your day to day in a way that no camera has done before, and the size makes it easy to carry around with you wherever you go.

It’s time to Flip.
