For some reason mankind has been happy to settle for elastic bands that only exist in two dimensions. So far they've served us mostly ok, but the talented designers at Nendo have realised that takes elastic bands into the third dimension vastly improves their usefulness. From securing rolled up documents, to binding together a bunch of pencils, it's just an all together better design.
One can't even imagine how painful a cubic elastic band must feel on impact after being fired across a room. That alone could make these totally worth whatever Nendo charges for these once they're available starting in April. [Nendo via Habitusliving]
