Well among other things, this swell metal THING is apparently new. We certainly don’t have one yet. Do you? It has the look of a high-end designer rocket launcher, but maybe it has a more playful purpose. Anyway it’s new. Found here (thanks Whafe)
At the end of any year, we are all thinking about the NEW 12-pack of months coming up and wondering what actually will be new about it. After a fairly random stroll around the internet, we found a few things that seem pretty new to us.
This new system above is supposed to help you from backing your car into another car. That’s a good new idea, don’t you think? It replaces the yelling, shrieking, honking, fist-shaking system currently in use in most vehicles. The new one is called the Advanced Backup Collision Intervention System, and it’s built for the newest model of the Infinity JX. Seen at the House of Japan here.
But you’re probably wondering: What’s new in nails? Well, if you want, they can be magnetic! So it says here.
You want new? origami tea bags!
Mount Fuji tissue dispensers!!!
If you can’t find yourself something as new as these things right away, you can at least grab yourself a 2013 calendar.
A robot a month
This calendar wall decal is made of black chalkboard vinyl that you can write on and erase. It is applied directly to the wall.

It’s your year, go out and get it. Don’t forget to try something new. Be bold. It feels good. You’ll never regret it.
Well there’s no guarantee, but you’ll never know till you try, and nothing new happens without taking a chance. Above from a story in the Guardian here (Photo: Alamy)
