Here are this week’s seven cool gadgets. Did you see last week’s edition?
A foldable mountain bike with 26″ standard wheels. It can be folded or unfolded within 30 seconds, and even fits inside the trunk of a MINI (a definite plus for me). It’s got a front suspension fork, 27 speeds and disk brakes to boot. Total weight is 27 lbs, but the price stings at just under $2,300.
Novanta Workstation by Luke Riggall
This well-designed aluminum and steel work desk has a bevy of features that set it apart from others. It has, among other things, cable channels, a built-in all-in-one computer or display stand, a built-in iPod dock, USB and audio hub, speaker grilles with integrated speakers, and a built-in power strip. Very nice indeed!

Promotional: Play your favorite tunes with an iPod alarm clock CD player.
Hangchair by Studio Niels & Sven
It’s a chair and hanger in one. Now you can hang your coat and shirt on the back, and even hang the chair away in a closet if you need the floorspace.
Beetle Cycle Helmet
Finally, a bike helmet that folds so it’s easy to carry around!

Ice Invaders ice cubes
Simple, retro and cool. A pure silicone ice cube tray that makes cubes in the shape of the little Space Invaders critters from the video game.
A water-power LED light for your shower. It’s powered by the water flow itself, so it needs no batteries. It has a built-in temperature sensor, so it turns blue if the water is cold, or red if the water is hot. Cool stuff!
My Paper Bag by Ramon Middelkoop
It looks like a paper bag, but it’s made out of leather. The design is very nice and useful too, but I worry about the suede finish, which could get stained as you start carrying stuff around in the bag.
