You know, technology and gadgets don't have to be so cold and impersonal. Even good design usually involves a lot of plastic and curves and smooth surfaces; where's the warmth? The softness? When was the last time you felt like you could cuddle up with a gadget?
That's why I like this unfortunately-named Knit Komputer Kord Kozy. It takes the power cord to a laptop and makes it something squeezable, something you don't need to hide away under a desk. Sure, it'll collect dust like nobody's business, but isn't that worth it for a little softness?
