A Vending Machine for Crows

Why not let crows pitch in and become part of the work force? Josh Klein built a vending machine that delivers peanuts to the smart crows who drop coins in the slot.

Bernardo Conquistador Tray by Ibride

Who wouldn't want their tea and crumpets delivered on this tray? It's a little out of my price range, so I won't be finding one in my lap anytime soon, But it is fun to learn about the company that makes it:

Ibride, pronounced "e-breed," is created by a French family in the south of France. The archival imagery is inspired by their travels as well as their local environment. The word 'ibride' itself is a play on words meaning 'hybrid', and the pieces combine a dual purpose of serving as sturdy and functional trays, but more often they are used as decorative art to accent home decor. Laminate decorative serving tray with wood core. Measures 25" x 17" their site: www.ibride.fr

Sometimes I come across products featuring crows and I just can't help myself. I thought this was particularly cool. if you want one, they are available at many shops on the Internet--just search for "IBride Bernardo tray."
