Jelly appliances

Cram them anywhere!

Instead of constrictive and unimaginative plastic shells, all home appliances should be encased in jelly.
Imagine the fun you could have squishing your TV into various fun shapes, or squashing your stereo speakers into the tightest corner of the room.

It would also add that bit of excitement to everyday home life. Cooking would be a baffling ordeal and the more mischievous of us could squeeze things into confusing shapes, causing many worried murmurs.

Simply take all the parts of your appliance, and arrange them somewhat hap-hazardly in a bowl of jelly. Leave this in the fridge overnight and, come morning, you have a lovely wobbly device that works perfectly.
After setting, the jelly can be molded into different shapes, or added on to or even made multi-coloured.

       Are we talking about the innards of an appliance covered with a jelly (jell-O) hardened in a mold in the jellied fridge or some sort of moldable slime?

       Not sure how well jelly appliances would work in the kitchen (although I would love to see a jellied blender in action), but the notion of smearing the TV across the wall to get a giant screen appeals. Croissant.

       BUBBLE FURNITURE yay! Think of all the saved knees and stub free toes! When my dog was a puppy I spent a fair amount of time running after him if someone came in the door... needless to say I was victim to a broken toe from slamming into furniture. If only we had bubble furniture legs. Also... no scrapes on the hardwood floor from moving furniture!
