Stack - Infinite Soap Bars
What if your bar of soap's slivered remains could transform from flat to stacked with no hassle, no waste, and no complex procedures or anesthesia? Simply and terrifically brilliant--like so many Kickstarter projects--Stack uses a concave surface with raised letters spelling out the brand's name to "lock" otherwise tedious, practically useless soap bar remnants on top of it, effectively spawning an infinite cycle of man-sized bars of soap.
As solid soap blocks dwindle, they tend to devolve into one of the following states: slimy; disintegrating; about to break into annoying little chunks; or unusable without the exacting hands of a surgeon. The frustration of facing any of these issues while muddling through already laborious practices of personal hygiene typically results in chucking the sliver in favor of a fresh bar, even though there may still be 1/8 to 1/3 of usable product left. Stack Soap eliminates both the frustration and the waste by providing a nest--no, a retirement home of sorts, for soap that has outlived its useful life, and would otherwise be sent straight to the grave. Simply place the remains of your old bar into the slot on the new one, press down to congeal their fatty acids, and fuse two into one.
You might think Stack soap was created by a thrifty, germophobic clean freak, but in fact it was created by Aric Norine, a computer animator in the video game industry. Who is married to a thrifty, germophopic clean freak. He obviously loves his wife. Stack is currently in production with manufacturing partner Twincraft Soap, which also makes suds for Aveda, Burt's Bees, and Whole Foods. So you know that shit is organic and infused with moisturizing jojoba oil and smells like hot chicks who have long hair and don't wear a lot of makeup and do Yogalates. Kickstarter project funding is open until March 14, 2012, with an estimated product delivery of May 2012 for Stack contributors.
June 22, 2012 Update: Stack's Kickstarter project has run its course. Successfully. So Stack is now an open-market commodity, available for worldwide purchase on Amazon.
