The name 'Folding Iron' narrows the playing field of what this baby can actually do; it is more than just an iron. A handy, multi-purpose concept, it can also convert into a portable hot plate to reheat your cup of coffee or even your bowl of soup.

Designed by Cai Ze Zhou and Wu Wenjun, the Folding Iron is currently only a concept. Entered as a 2011 iF concept design, it is both simple and clever. With its portable heating system and clothes-pressing functionality, this multi-purpose design would work on college campus settings and vacation trips alike. It is also great for small spaces that benefit from dual purpose products.

I especially like the sleek form that the Folding Iron takes on.
