Chocolate done well | Compartes

Photographs from Compartes.com
Seems like a pretty solid business case to me: Take something everyone loves, make it look pretty.
Why didn't anyone think of this before?

It's not just the packaging, the bars themselves look equally beautiful.
And with tastes like 'Cocoa Caliente' (dark chocolate with cinnamon and pepper), 'Pina Colada' and 'Caramelized popcorn', these chocolate bars probably taste as good as they look.

I need to try these.

Charging your phone with a stained glass window

Current Window by Marjan van Aubel - print design by Marine Duroselle

From the designers' website:
"Current Window is a modern version of stained glass — using current technologies. The coloured pieces of glass are generating electricity from daylight, and can even harness diffused sunlight. This electricity can be used to power a whole range of electrical appliances. The glass pieces are made of ‘Dye Sensitised Solar Cells’, which use the properties of colour to create an electrical current — just like photosynthesis in plants. Similarly to the various shades of green chlorophyll absorbing light, the coloured window panes harness energy.
Plug in your devices through integrated USB ports in the window ledge. The greater the surface exposed, the more energy will be collected. Imagine these windows in churches, schools, and workplaces! Current Window offers us an example of energy-harvesting in a natural and aesthetic way, for our future."

Yes please.
I like these photographs from Marjan van Aubels Instagram account even better:
