The best cup for tea

I like to drink tea during the winter. So, I was looking for a nice cup for tea and for my surprise I found this one. Is not an ordinary tea cup, it is 2011 Red Dot Design winner and also it has a name: TIPPING TEACUP. At $20 is not very expensive but not cheap and already is on my wishing list for Santa.

[box type=”info”] The teacup has an unusual angled bottom that allows it to rest in two different positions. On one side is a screened compartment in which you place your favorite loose tea leaves. Pour hot water through the screen and allow it to steep. Once it’s done, simply tip the cup in the other direction, lifting the leaves up out of the water. The cup’s large size is perfect for cradling between your hands as you enjoy the warmth of your drink. Screen is removable for simple clean-up. [/box]

How to Stop Snoring in Japan

Japanese people love to make robots or to buy robots. At International Robot Exhibition (IREX) held at Tokyo, it was present a robot pillow developed at the Kabe laboratory at Waseda University.

This robot pillow in shape of a polar bear intended to stop snoring in heavy sleepers.

I’m personally a little scare to sleep near a robot, not to talk about how could I feel to sleeping on a robot and this robot monitored my sleep and touch me if I start snoring…
