Rollo Collar Integrates The Leash Into One Modern Collar

Meet the Rollo Collar, an uber ingenious gadget that'll make you pull money out of your wallet and throw it at your screen. What is it you ask? The Rollo Collar is a svelte dog collar with a built-in retractable leash. It's more of a rubberized watch band for your dog than an ordinary collar though. It's so good looking it makes me want to be a dog just so I can wear one myself. Hey, if you're kinky enough, you could. We won't tell your neighbors. I personally don't own a dog, but this has got to be one of the most innovative ideas we've seen in a while that's so well designed it could have been turned into a smart watch or one of them fitness tracking monitors.

The Rollo Collar is not a concept, it's a full functioning product designed to be worn as an everyday collar until it's time for a walk in the park. You'd then grab onto the magnetically clinged handle, and the durable nylon corded leash automatically retracts from within its collar housing mechanism. It's that intuitive. The leash can extend up to 4.5 feet and features a length locking mechanism. The idea is to simplify your daily routine of having to use two separate detachable accessories, into one seamless gear that's always there when you need it. On your dog that is.

Turn Your iPad Nano Into A Classy Pocket Watch With iPocketWatch

Wearing your iPod Nano as a watch just got boring. With the iPocketWatch you can class up your geekyness like the olden days. The iPocketWatch was designed by an Australian industrial designer and is machined from aluminum and designed with to be slim enough to effortlessly slip in and out of that small jeans pocket of yours. I always thought that small pocket was meant to keep small change, but as it turns out, it's actually a specially designed watch pocket first introduced by Levi Strauss (Levi's) and that's a fact.

The iPocketWatch comes with an 11-inch (30cm) long metal chain with a belt hook and is available in two different variants, one a square facia and the other a round facia. Both designed to fit over the many watch faces of the iPod Nano and retain full access to all of the iPod Nano's ports and buttons including the back clip. The iPocketWatch is currently a crowdfunding project like Kickstarter so you'll be able to pre-order yourself one of these for $39 and hope it'll reach its funding goal so you can keep time the old school way.

Thanks for the tip, Edwin!
