Graffiti artist Justin Nanfelt along with creative brothers Taylor and Zach Calmus pooled their talents to create Taybles, a wonderful retro-styled line of handmade coffee tables that look just like old school audio cassettes, complete with cup holders, LED lights and a clever storage compartment where the tape would normally be. These inventive tables are available for purchase through Etsy and through the Taybles site.
TAYBLES is comprised of three young artists / entrepreneurs (Taylor, Justin and Zach) who set out to make a product that would not only be a functional piece of furniture, but also a nostalgic piece of art. Influenced by homemade mixtapes, pop-art and modern design, TAYBLES caters to musicians, artists and the young at heart. We at TAYBLES also believe in “paying to forward.” A part of every sale goes to charity. The TAYBLES started a few years ago as a mere dream of Taylor’s. “As a kid, I grew up with a tape player in my car listening to Dad’s old cassettes like Rolling Stones and Cheap Trick.” Excited to work in a new medium, Taylor set to work on making the TAYBLES prototype in his closet sized workshop at the apartment he managed in Los Angeles. “I would often work late at night, and would worry about my tenants complaining about noise.” After completing the prototype Taylor and Justin realized what a fantastic product the TAYBLES was. They moved production out of the storage closet and into the hands of Taylor’s brother Zach who specializes in woodworking and has been building furniture for the last 10 years (his most prized possession is his hand-crafted pool table). Together they collaborated to redesign the TAYBLES to the unique, simplistic, captivating design that you see today.

Evan Booth, a super skilled builder of stuff made “out of other stuff”, created Hedberg, a working bionic hand that was crafted entirely (with the exception of adhesives and power) out of the parts of a disassembled Keurig K350 Coffee Maker. The 200-hours of this incredible project was condensed into a dizzying 5-minute timelapse that shows every bit of the exceptional work he did.
• One single Keurig used (K350/300 2.0 Brewer)
• The only non-Keurig materials are adhesives and the 12v external power supply
• Used basic tools—rotary, heat gun, common hand tools, etc.
• No plans…just a general idea of how things should be constructed
• Build time: 199 hours, 56 minutes, and 36 seconds (read: hands on things)
Booth responded to a valid question by commenter who asked how he got it to move at the end.
…the motor runs way too fast at 12v, so I had to build a gangster speed controller using another motor, a magnet, and a magnetic switch

The Off To The Races Coffeemaker by Hammacher Schlemmer is an “authentic-looking” racing helmet that houses a drip coffeemaker. To top it all off, the high-speed coffeemaker also says “start your engine” while the sound of a powerful car engine roars in the background.
Ideal for those who need a jump start for their daily grind, this is the racing helmet that brews your morning coffee. Available exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, this authentic-looking headgear houses a drip coffeemaker that brews one to eight cups of “high-octane fuel” into its 64 oz. glass carafe and says “Start your engines” amid the roar of a car engine. Providing an alternative to AM pit-stops at coffee shops or drive-thrus, this helmet brewer gives its owner a head start to the commuting checkered flag. Its tinted plastic visor flips down to conceal the coffee pot.
Cracked spokesman Roger shows what the world would be like if coffee commercials were forced to be honest about their addictive hot brown liquid. The video reveals some of the effects of coffee as well as some of the problems with how it is sourced and distributed.
Only good marketing could get the entire world addicted to black liquid that raises blood pressure and increases stress.
