If the Coway Air Purifier proved that air purification systems don't have to be ugly, the Airwake ($TBA) proves that you don't need a spaceship-like interior design sense to make one blend in. Wrapped in a stylish shell of ash wood and steel, the Airwake is ready to clean the air in any room in the house. Just don't be surprised when house guests ask where you got that stylish new speaker. [Thanks, Erik]
Ditch the numbers and go with the gesture-based security of the Master Lock Speed Dial ($13). The Speed Dial retains the looks of Master's traditional combination locks, but uses an analog nub-style rocker to open using a sequence of up, down, left, and right movements. We're not sure why, but we think there might be one sequence that will be more popular than all others.
Made in their Portland, Oregon, factory, the Danner Ridge was created to be a lighter weight and more versatile hiking boot that still reflects its classic Danner styling. Built with light hikes and city streets in mind, the overall design is inspired by the original Danner Light with an updated construction method that integrates the shank, midsole and lasting board into a single piece. This new, unified platform, combined with a low profile Vibram outsole, allowed Danner to significantly reduce weight and create an out-of-the-box comfort that doesn't come standard with most classic hiking boots.
The result of three years of research and millions of data points, the Casper Wave is a breakthrough in mattress design. Underneath its handsome exterior, you'll find the new, proprietary Natural Geometry System. It uses five layers of foam to mimic the natural contours of your body at 36 specific points, adjusting naturally to your shoulders and hips without sacrificing support, and keeping your spine properly aligned. Like the original, it uses open-cell foams to keep you cool at night. Designed and assembled in the USA.

Hide your precious data inside the unassuming casing of a video game classic with NES Hard Drives ($130-$180).

Ever wonder how much power your TV, microwave, or cell charger uses, and how much that costs you? The Belkin Conserve Insight ($30) is a new, easy-to-use monitor that will tell you exactly that. The white and green adapter plugs in the wall between the gadget or appliance you want to track and the outlet itself, using a small screen on a tethered box to tell you how much energy the attached device is using, as well as the carbon and monetary costs. You might just find out that leaving your guitar amp or favorite lamp plugged in 24/7 isn't as great an idea as you thought.
