More and more of our shared content is vertical (not necessarily a good thing), which makes our horizontal main screens ill-suited for viewing it. Samsung aims to fix this with the Sero. This 43-inch QLED display sits on a floor stand that allows it to rotate from horizontal to vertical as needed. NFC makes beaming content from a phone or tablet simple, and built-in 4.1-channel, 60W speakers provide surprisingly robust sound. It launches exclusively in South Korea this May.
Designed in Brooklyn by The Principals, this Liquid Body Flask is a beautiful example of ingenuity and utility. The thin pocket flask is made from flat sheets of surgical-grade stainless steel that are welded together. The form is created through water pressure which expands the steel like a mylar balloon creating a unique shape for each flask. The award-winning design is presented with a matte black finish, perfect for a covert sip or pour when the need arises.

Using a novel design to improve the act of measuring, the Areaware Aluminum Ruler is likely the last ruler you'll need to buy. As usual, it measures inches on one side and centimeters on the other, but instead of leaving you with endless straight lines, it uses red dots to signify especially important whole numbers, and curves to connect the measurements in between. The result is a tool that's similar to its predecessors in many ways, yet noticeably more enjoyable to use.

Traditional playing cards are like the interior of a 1980s casino: gaudy and over-the-top. These Areaware Minim Playing Cards are the complete opposite. Designed by Joe Doucet, they strip away everything but the absolutely essential, replacing the heart, club, diamond, and spade graphics with geometric symbols, and the backside graphics with minimal diagonal lines. Perfect for making your weekly poker night a little more refined, they're made from durable PVC with a paper box.
