TK-10-Trash-Krusher-Gear-Patrol Trash Krusher
A few basic truths: you cannot change the past; the sun will rise tomorrow; trash is icky. Instead of using your foot to mash down your garbage — or worse, your hand — this manual trash compactor, integrated into the lid of a waste bin, does the dirty work for you. Rinsing the compactor plate every now and then is as close to nausea as you’ll get. $160 ()
Infiniti-Q30-Concept-Gear-Patrol Infiniti Q30 COncept
Are you an Elvis impersonator looking to upgrade your ride? A Mary Kay saleswoman trying extra hard to get that ultimate reward? Perhaps you should consider a different route to pink car ownership: the Infiniti Q30 concept, just revealed in Hong Kong by its parent company ahead of the official Frankfurt Motor Show debut in September. Infiniti calls the far-from-subtle design a combination of a sporty coupe, roomy hatch and crouched-stance crossover, and hope the new look will draw in younger buyers. Just how young they’re aiming is unclear. (Because the concept is pink, is what we’re saying.) infiniti.com

SodaStream-Source-Bottle-By-Yves-Behar-Gear-Patrol SodaStream Source By Yves Behar
If you like DIY bubbly drinks but can’t stand unattractive design, the original Soda Stream may have given you pause. It was utilitarian, sure, but, aesthetically speaking, left something to be desired. A while back Yves Behar lent his magic touch to the bottles, giving them a sexy teardrop-esque shape, which made design snobs do a double take. Now that bottle comes standard with each Soda Stream. Now there’s no excuse to buy (not steal) your favorite fizzer. $100 ()
