Lean and Clean Balancing Machine Bookshelf
The Lean and Clean Balancing Machine Bookshelf is not only a cool looking bookshelf but also serves many purposes. The most functional being that it is not fixed in one position. This bookshelf is always balancing on one round peg in the wall. It keeps the dust off since, it won’t rest on flat surface for a long time. Everytime you take a book off of one side, the whole shelf will tilt. Another useful feature is that the counterbalances are decorative frames. You can put tiny flowers like the ones in the picture or real pictures of you looking scared while going down a roller coaster last year at Six Flags.

Converted Watertower House
zecc ARCHITECTEN converted this water tower in Soest, Utrecht, Netherlands into a residence. It came out pretty cool. I especially like the top bedroom, which is kept kind of open to the whole house. It’ll be weird to have a big party though. I think of it more like a secret lair where you can start your nightly patrol off the top. I don’t know where you could have a secret room to hide your costumes though.
Awesome DAP (Digital Audio Player)
This looks like just a concept but a designer named Yong-Seong Kim designed this DAP that unfolds to play CDs and MP3 CDs. It looks cool but not very functional as you can’t just put it in your pocket or backpack when playing a CD. What it would be good for is if you go someplace to sit down and there’s CDs around like a library. Although it would be weird to just listen to a CD at the library without taking it home and ripping it to your computer.
