Guntu Floating Hotel

Guntu is a a new creation that is making our admiration grow for all things that come out of the rising sun country... Japan. The fabulous floating hotel, designed by the acclaimed architect Yasube Horibe, aims to recreate a Ryokan - traditional Japanese Inn. Comprised of 19 rooms (all boasting their own terrace and gorgeous sea views), itís all elegantly finished, with wood as its main element and the traditional minimalist oriental style. The beautiful ship slowly cruises the Set Inland Sea and you may choose six different courses to enjoy the striking landscape. On the rooftop youíll get a spacious deck to admire the ever-changing view plus an indoor lounge to stay warm and mingle with the other guests should you choose to. Guests can also enjoy delicious Japanese food, sushi, and seasonal dishes in the expansive dining room. If youíre heading that way, be sure to check it out and book some reservations ahead.

SOARIGAMI ARMREST DIVIDER

Soarigami is a genius way to stop airplane armrest battles for good, a folding device that extends and divides the paltry elbow room of your shared airplane armrest! Simply unfold it, clamp it over an existing armrest, and the device will create two armrests instead of just one to fight over. Ideal for frequent flyers, Soarigami sets out to make armrest sharing an elbow-fighting-free zone. Made of recycled plastic, it folds flat for easy carry when itís not being us...
