Aymie Spitzer is a Brooklyn based designer with a great hand for etching and carving. She’s come up with an amazing concept, ‘Neighborwoods’ offers you the chance to get an engraved wooden map of your local hood. Right now the cities include Barcelona, Berlin, Brooklyn, London, Paris, Manhattan, Philadelphia and San Francisco, with more on the cards . Find out more at www.Neighborwoods.com.

Izhar Gafni from Israel has solved the world fuel shortage crisis in one fell swoop… as long as it doesn’t rain. All the money spent on bike sharing schemes in so many cities around the world, it’d make sense for hotter countries to follow Izhar’s lead. So what if your bike was stolen? Just cut out another one – this one cost Izhar $9 to make!

Whilst I’m writing about bikes (again) do make sure to check out this amazing bendable bike, tie it to a post – and no one will nick it :]

Be the envy of every tourist and mini cab driver in London with this absolutely beautiful vision of London in the form of a highly intricate hand drawn and coloured map by UK illustrator Jenni Sparks. Commissioned by Evermade and available in slightly larger sizes than A2 (£75) and A1 (£130) at www.Evermade.com – I guarantee these lovelies will sell out fast.
