Issue 107: April 20, 2018
The 22 Review is our way of sharing the interesting, exciting and thought-provoking things we come across each week. We pick the best 2 finds and add in a little extra something too. Enjoy!
The SpinCycle is a machine that washes clothes by using a bicycle. It was invented by Rich Hewitt who came up with the idea when he was in Burundi, a small country in central Africa.
Whilst he was there he had to wash clothes by hand, so he came up with this genious but simple invention to help others in developing countries who wash their clothes by hand as well. Clothes, water and detergent can be added to a drum, and then attached to the a frame which is attached to a bike. The user should then ride the bike statically for 10 minutes for the wash to be done.
While it occupies the exact footprint of a wine bottle on your kitchen shelf, the Bin 8 is actually pretty much all the kitchen accessories you need, combined into one ‘Swiss Army Bottle’ of sorts.
A prime example of utilitarian, artistic, and thoughtful Japanese design, the Bin 8 is a combination of eight kitchen tools stacked one upon the other, made to look like a wine bottle. The bottle’s spout acts as a funnel, and its base, a measuring cup. Sitting in between these two are a citrus juicer, a spice grater, cheese grater, yolk separator, egg masher, and a jar-opening silicone ring.
LECTOR's flexible design also lends its self to be used by both right-handed and left-handed people and is compact enough to make it hassle-free to carry with you everywhere!
Earlier this week, Simon appeared on Channel 4's new show Buy It Now with our latest product, the Mobu Cable Clip. Simon had only a minute to pitch his idea to an audience and a panel of tough judges!
- If you're based in the UK, you can watch the show here (he's in the first slot).
- If you're outside the UK, you can watch the clip YouTube here.
- Simon also wrote a short read on his experience when filming the show here.
Until next week,
Simon & Lee
