How can we keep the US Postal Service alive? Do innovative and creative things like Japan. In Japan you can send Cookie Mail. Your message is literally printed onto 35 to 70 little cookies, a letter per cookie.
The cookies even come in 3 flavors!
Makes such a great gift! Now we just need one in the US.
Art & Food, one of the best combinations in the world!
This is another beautiful creation from Nendo. The tube is made of chocolate and each paint is a different flavored syrup. The label tells you the flavor and acts like a wrapper. Eat, paint, collect, savor!
Only in Japan...EntreX have designed a silicon dispenser for canned Pringles. Keeps your hands clean and for those with bigger hands, this keeps you from getting your hand stuck in the can. Simple. Genius. Great stocking stuffer!
Don't need to say much except, AWESOME!

Find out how to make your own Mister Donut toolbox here. Mister Donut should really consider using this as their box!
It gets pretty close with Juice Skins. Designed by Naoto Fukasawa, these juice boxes are designed to resemble the juice of the fruit. Love the look, feel, simple yet highly innovative design. The kiwi fuzz is pretty funny. I wonder if they are scented...
These are only available in Japan for now.
Yahoo! Japan Helps Blind Kids Search The Internet With 3D-Printing Machine
This is such an incredible way to integrate 3D printing and the Internet. This machine, called the ‘Hands On Search’ by Yahoo! Japan, allows blind children to say a word, the internet searches for the word and then prints out a 3D model allowing the blind child to touch it, feel every angle and get a sense of what things are physically. Watch it in action:
I hope this eventually becomes a part of every visually impaired school or at least accessible to blind people everywhere. Technology is amazing. Technology to help people with disabilities is even more amazing.
