| From

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 27 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- New products from Museum of Robots ( introduced at the International Home + Housewares Show 2009 have been selected as "Cool Products for the Home" by BusinessWeek. Recognized as among the most innovative product introductions are the Recycled PET Felt Collection and Flying Saucer Bowl Set.

Museum of RobotsSays Museum of Robots co-founder Vicki Kung, "Our focus is on creating functional products that have a sense of humor, experiment with interesting materials and design motifs, and are well-made. Products that keep people and households organized become part of a person's toolkit - we create those types of 'tools.' Our products are designed to support multiple uses, extending their utility as people move from home to office to play."

The Recycled PET Felt Collection products are made of polyester felt made from 100-percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. The felt fabric is made in the USA by a manufacturer of industrial fabrics, and Museum of Robots has translated it into consumer products. It is estimated that each pound of fabric is the equivalent of 10 plastic bottles that would otherwise go to landfill. Products are manufactured at a certified woman-owned apparel factory in the Los Angeles area.

Felt products range from market totes, to wine bags, to notebook covers and portfolios, all in support of keeping life sustainably organized. Notebook covers include a notepad made in USA of recycled paper by Blind Industries & Services of Maryland, which trains and employs the blind and visually impaired.

Also new is the Flying Saucer Base Collection. The large stainless steel base holds a two-piece, multi-functional wooden bowl set, used covered or with the top resting on its antennae as a second bowl; the small stainless steel base holds the laboratory glass Scientific Vase.

Other new products include the Leather Command Center Organization Group, featuring a leather notebook cover, covered box, and tray set, all embossed with the signature Museum of Robots motif.
