Money as origami

Paper money is not just for spending — it is also great for origami.

The Asahi website has posted a story about “Turban Noguchi,” a popular origami made using a 1000-yen bill. The bill features a portrait of Hideyo Noguchi, the noted physician and bacteriologist who, among other things, discovered the agent of syphilis in 1911. By folding the money, you can outfit Noguchi with a turban or other fancy headgear.

Asahi credits a Mr. Nakajima, a 29-year-old Nagoya resident, with inventing the original Turban Noguchi origami technique. According to the article, Nakajima discovered Turban Noguchi by accident one night when playing around with his money. “I was shocked by Noguchi’s bizarre appearance,” he says.

Magnetic Clothes Hangers

Clothes hangers and clothing spaces have largely remained in the sameformat over the years. Hangers usually consist of a styled wooden, plastic or metal frame upon which clothing rests, with a hook component at the top. Similarly, contemporary wardrobes often use a contained space with horizontal bar(s) upon which to place the hangers in a linear pattern.

Space Invaders Doormat

Fresh from French designers La Tête Au Cube comes this hi-tech doormat which does many things to a person’s crib.
For starters, it says “Beware Of The Nerd” in a fairly charming way.
It will show you to your door no matter how many Flaming Sambucas/microdots/spliffs you’ve had the (mis)fortune to consume on your travels.
Door(mat) tax is €85 and you’ll need a couple of AA batteries to make the little green men strutt their spacey stuff outside your door. – Ad Dugdale
