I’ve heard it said that a post-climate change world will require a much less materialistic culture, fewer “things” per person. If that’s the case, you might want to grab these items before they disappear like so much ozone. Sure, you’ve never given them a second thought—maybe you’ve never even heard of them. But as a proud owner of one, or several, of these gadgets, your apartment might be the coolest new kid on the block…
Imagine: you manage to get your date to come home with you after dinner. You take her out on to your balcony, adorned with flowers and—you guessed it—decorative rocks. Then, out of nowhere, she hears romantic music from those very rocks. Most surprising date move ever! Plus, because your neighbors can’t recognize these babies for what they really are, you could even keep them in your backyard without having them filched when you’re away.
Hogwarts Travel Posters
Never actually been to Hogwarts? Neither has anyone else! While the release of the final Harry Potter movie may have forever limited the appropriateness of your wizard dress robes to Halloween, you can still show off your magic worldliness with these classy, apparently vintage posters.
Is any more explanation necessary? We’ve all woken up to an alarm and wished we were Al Capone (or is that just me?) You don’t even need a license, regardless of the state you live in, as the clock’s accompanying gun is actually a remote. Sigh.
Convection Wall Oven
Perhaps the most practical of these suggestions, as it actually performs necessary functions without superfluous adornment. This oven can be mounted at any height; the door can open from either side. Hate bending over—bad back or not? Afraid the kids will cook a lizard they found in the backyard? Choose the location right for you, and below the stove be darned!
For every apartment renter that ever wished she starred in The Jetsons. Or, for that matter, hates pushing a vacuum around. Take a leaf out of Parks and Recreation’s book, and spice your vacuum up with a little music. Your cleaning party is now a dance party!
