Behold the awesomeness that is the Corona-Matic keyboard waffle iron! It was created by New York-based designed Chris Dimino using a 1960s Smith Corona typewriter and a waffle iron from the same period. We love the jams jars and powdered sugar shaker in place of ink dispensers. Unfortunately this stylish marriage of vintage writing machine and kitchen utensil isn’t a functional model.
But never fear, Chris is currently hard at work on designing a functioning keyboard waffle iron. He plans to have a limited edition available for purchase by winter 2014. Keep an eye on his Keyboard Waffle Iron website for production status updates. With any luck we’ll soon be able to make delicious keyboard-shaped waffles to our hearts’ (and stomachs’) content.

This gorgeous, tentacular object is an American chatelaine dating back to 1887. A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. They were worn by many housekeepers during the 19th century, with each
tentaclechain fastened to a useful household appendage such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc.
