Created by Bluelounge Design, the Cable Yoyo's mission is to bring Zen-like order to the tangled cords on your desk or floor by coiling said cords into neat flat spirals.

Chronicle Books has just published a reproduction of the design classic Watching Words Move by Ivan Chermayeff and Thomas H. Geismar - this time with added notes on the text by such design heavyweights as Steven Heller. Another one to add to the art and design book wish list.
