At WIRED, we're always scouring the world of products for whatever's most innovative, clever, and beautiful. And we collect the result of all that labor in our yearly Design|Life special edition, which you can find on newsstands today. Don't have a newsstand handy? You're in luck. Over the next couple weeks, we'll be unveiling a series of galleries that feature 180 of the best-designed products in the world. But to offer you a taste of what's to come, we've culled 21 of them. Enjoy!
