I can't say we were expecting any major breakthroughs from DCI at the International Home + Housewares Show last weekend, but we're always happy to catch up with founder Roni Kabessa, who was happy to show us a select few of the dozens of new goodies on the occasion of the company's 15th anniversay. As with last year, the Providence, RI-based company exhibited a full gamut of products from practical to playful. Our favorites included the Talk Dock, a riff on reappropriating the traditional telephone receiver as a smartphone accessory. DCI's version has two 1/8” audio jacks for maximum compatibility (there's no built-in dock, but there's a slot for a cable).
The broad range of novelty items for the kitchen and office also includes several beverage-related products—here, Roni walks us through the Talk Dock, as well as the Flavor Infusion Cup, Babushka Tea Infuser, Rock and Brew Tea Infuser, drinKooliez, Sandwich Box and Bright Idea LED Light.
