BlenderBottle GoStak is no ordinary container system, it consists of individual jars that can be attached to each other, creating a portable snack tower of sorts. For those who love mixing protein shakes directly after a workout and have more than one powder, the GoStak system fits inside the SportMixer and Classic bottles.

Sushi Towels

Most bath towels are designed purely to absorb water, but these, by designer Jenny Pokryvailo, look like maki sushi rolls when rolled up: salmon, tuna, crab, and tamago to be exact.

Or, that the word 'sushi' refers to rice that has been seasoned with vinegar, sugar, and salt, and not raw fish? Click here to view the first image in this week's demotivational poster gallery.

The Barisieur Coffee Alarm Clock

You know what they say..."the best part of waking up is the coffee in your cup". Most (if not all) coffee machines do not have the ability to wake you up as well as brew a fresh cup of Joe, but British designer Joshua Renouf's creation will do just that.
