    7. A smart notebook that can scan your handwritten notes and then let you erase everything with a microwave, so you can save on paper while still getting the solid feeling of pen and paper. Honestly, it won't be long before this thing starts making (micro)waves.

    8. A heat conductive ice cream scoop ready to make impatient ice cream eaters ice–scream with joy when they are able to scoop out their dessert in seconds — straight out of the freezer.

    15. A salt shooter that'll be far superior to the fly swatter... or the salt shaker, for that matter.

    16. A vegan aloe and rose clay soap which, unlike the majority of bar soaps, won't dry out your skin — so you can enjoy the satisfaction of a luxe bar of soap without sacrificing your skin.

    17. Or a steel bar of soap that'll quickly eliminate those hard-to-lose smells like onion, fish, and garlic (reviewers also say this works great on B.O., apparently).

    27. A wine shelf for efficiently storing every glass and bottle you've got, while also looking impossibly chic any place you put it.

    28. A butter bell that'll keep your butter spreadable and soft 24/7 — simply press a stick of room temperature butter into the top, fill the bottom with a little bit of water, and place it on the counter. You'll have rich and creamy butter that'll be the most satisfying thing since sliced bread.

    29. A pack of mushroom coffee to possibly boost your metabolism while giving you a caffeine boost in the mornings — letting you enjoy a more beneficial breakfast in an instant (instant coffee, that is).
