Neat Acoustics Iota Alpha

The Iota Alpha speakers from Neat are a dark horse among the more ‘high-end’ stereos on the market. With their strange looks, almost like a cross between a tumble-drier and a half-finished robot from a 50’s TV show, it’s easy to think that their sonic output will be similarly whacky. However, these little knee-high speakers have got a few surprises inside that shatter these mocking first impressions.

Mira Advance Shower (8.7kW)

If you feel like you have a handle on life, there’s nothing like trying to use someone else’s shower to remind you that you are basically a monkey whacking a coconut against the floor trying to get in. Some showers have so many dials, knobs and buttons that it looks more like the cockpit of a plane rather than something to wash the filth off.

Melitta AromaFresh

Fun fact: Melitta Bentz invented the first coffee filter in 1908 - get this woman a statue! This opened a whole new way of preparing the black wake up juice. Today Melitta AromaFresh (now you know why they use that name) allows you to wake up to a cup of coffee made from freshly ground beans or pre-ground coffee; that’s always worth getting up for!
