Every great invention starts as a simple idea. That simple idea needs to be conveyed to others, and that’s where sketches and blueprints come in. Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: 122 Inventions that Changed the World is a compendium of those original designs, sharing them for everything from the iconic Coke bottle to Mr. Potato Head. If you’re a design fan or a budding inventor, it will become a source of great inspiration. Set for release mid-next year, the book by Jean-Marie Donat will give you insight into the complexity of things as seemingly simple as the paperclip. You can pre-order now and expect a surprise in nine months.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
