DESIGN MUSEUM -- The Conran Foundation Collection opens next week at London's Design Museum. It's an exhibition that shows design is all around and some of my favourites make the lineup.
- Kinder Egg. Not for sale in the States.
- Magnetic paint that rolls on easily and turns entire walls into magnets.
- Corn starch packing that weighs nothing, costs almost nothing, protects breakables, and is edible.
- Bible gum: sugarless chewing gum contained inside miniature Bibles.
- Fingertip toothbrush. Now available in Boots.
- Turkish tea pot. Distinguished by its two spouts.
- Three-bladed worm cutters.
