If you're the type to be easily distracted by anything from ringing doorbells to your favorite TV show while you're ironing, then this iron might just save you from burning a hole in your clothes, or even your house.

The Roly Poly Iron, an interesting concept design by Wonkook Lee, is loaded with touch sensors and a set of weights which shift inside the handle when you hold the iron, making holding it feel natural.

As soon as you let go of it, the sensors help shift the weights to rock the iron back up to its standing position. Genius!
