Scientifically Accurate Gifts
A quick note since gift-giving season is right around the corner! The folks at Cognitive Surplus sent me over a box full of science-themed home goodies to check out. A Fibonacci t-shirt, soap that describes its own chemistry, DNA wine glasses, science/art cards … this is some really cool stuff! If you’re looking something a little out of the ordinary that might engage your giftee’s higher brain functions, this fits the bill.
I like the vintage flair to it, too. You didn’t ask, but some friends of ours are having a baby, and I have my eye on this little mitosis-themed outfit. Of course, I know that “smart” sodium chloride tastes the same as regular sodium chloride, but there’s something wonderful about filling your home with beautiful bits of science. Who knows, maybe when you win that Nobel prize, you’ll look back and say “It started with the soap.”
Thanks to Cognitive Surplus for sending this stuff over! I really like their philosophy: Home goods can be intelligent and well-designed at the same time.
