Watson on his work: Remember when you were scolded for not using a coaster? Worry no more…. New designs include the intriguing ‘Linger a Little Longer’ Table and Benches, a deceptively understated design with a dynamic twist. Making entertaining that bit more fun (while also commenting on how ‘precious’ we can become about the functionality of furniture, or how oblivious we can be to every effect we have on our environment) the thermochromic finish of the table and benches responds to the heat of any plate, mug or serving dish – or body part – placed on it, to leave an ephemeral ‘watermark.’ Link.

It’s the Bobine, a charging cable and flexible tripod for iPhones and Android devices! The Bobine does double duty, charging your phone while holding it steady. Since you don’t have to worry about your phone’s battery, you can use it to take really long videos, or use an app to shoot great timelapses. Even when it’s not charging anything, it makes a great tripod. You can bend it into a cobra so your phone can stand on its own for a self portrait or group shot anywhere. Want a shot from above? Wrap it tentacle-style around a tree limb. The Bobine can also be an adjustable extender: use it to take shots in hard-to-reach places and weird angles.
