design martus 560x400 Hand ToolsGet a grip. Can I give you a hand?

Let’s be honest, you probably thought of these expressions after viewing the Design Martus hand tools and felt pretty clever too for coming up with them.What is truly clever is how this industrial design team managed to take one of the most basic tools, a wrench, and re-design it in an almost literal, tongue-in-cheek manner. This type of sensibility seems to be the trademark of Design Martus, run by Martus and Silvio LLC, presumably the brainchild of  Bob Martus and Kate Silvio. According to them their work is focused on ‘creative industrial design, product development, custom furniture and design’. The Metal Work portfolio in particular, demonstrates their knack for turning typical household items such as plant racks, tables, chairs and tabernacles (yes tabernacles, every home has one, it’s found next to the family barbecue) into functional art.  Now let’s all give them a hand (sorry I needed to get it out my system).

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
