BusinessWeek recently announced the winners of the International Design Excellence Awards. There's some great stuff in there. Here's my top 5 pick: Revolutionized Wrench - a spanner with a twisted handle to be easier on your hands. MoGo Mouse BT - a wireless Bluetooth mouse that folds flat and fits into a PC card slot for easy storage. It looks kinda awkward but if it feels comfortable to use then it's certainly a very neat product. Cascuz - a geodesic cycle helmet. I was just having a conversation the other day wondering why all cycle helmets look stupid. This one at least looks kind interesting and possibly even... cool? The head-mounted lights are a feature I'm surprised isn't more widely adopted. Sync washing system - soapless hand washer & dryer in one unit. Enermax Packaging - this is by far my favourite. In fact this is so cool that if I saw these batteries in a shop I'd buy them just for the packaging!
