Cute, clever and making a political/environmental statement? Yes, it's Polar Ice designed by Atsuhiro Hayashi. Two silicon cups make unique ice cubes that show either a polar bear or two penguins standing on a glacier. How sad is it that they'll eventually melt away? Monos is selling them (set of 2) for 1,575 yen (or about $20 US).

Talk about a conversation starter.

Cool idea, but only one ice cube per cup?
