Chances are there’s a cabinet in your kitchen where your pots and pans (and who knows what else) are all jumbled in together.

The Suitecase Scooter made us wonder what other products have been combined with skateboards. One surprising such product we found: baby strollers!

Two stroller-skateboard hybrids especially stood out to us. One, the Longboard Stroller from Quinny, is still in the concept phase. The other, the Sidekick Stroller Board from Orbit Baby, is available for purchase today. Spot Cool Stuff takes a look at each:

Vienna’s Public Hammock House
spot cool stuff DESIGN

Cool hammocks are more associated with Caribbean beaches and backyard swimming pools than they are the stuff of urban northern European. Yet it is in the middle of Vienna, in the Austrian capital’s Museum Quarter, that you’ll find the Flederhaus. The five-story public structure is like a sort of hammock village under one roof.
