Shelves are only as interesting as the items that get stored on them. Every great innovation that was ever shipped, stocked, and sold has been aided in its journey by Shelving. So, to honor the great history of shelves, we’re going to present to you with 5 of the coolest products that have ever had the pleasure of sitting on the shelf.

5. Soap!

Civilization would be a very different place without proper hygiene. Imagine a bustling downtown full of commuters, vendors, and visitors, every one of them stinking to high heaven. Food wouldn’t taste as good, colors wouldn’t be as vibrant, and you’d never get that stain out! Soap is pretty much the precursor to medicine, so for founding a field of cleanliness, soap makes the list of shelving’s best products ever.

4. Tasers

These powerful little tools can be found on secure shelving across the nation, and keep people from resting on a very private slab-shelf. Representing the pinnacle of technology and short-ranged, non lethal defense, the taser has resolved thousands of dangerous situations without the loss of life. People can be unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be given a second chance. Just don’t stick around for them to consider their options.

3. Indoor Gardens

Everyone is trying to make the best of this life: eating right, staying active, connecting with nature, etc. On the down side, it can be hard to balance your busy life with the demands of tending a garden, let alone even cooking! That’s why these window farms are so brilliant, just set them in the window with some water and, in no time, you’ll have your favorite herbs fresh daily. Going from warehouse rack to window ledge is a big step, so we’re happy to welcome these farms into the light!

2. Flexible Prep Tables

Presto, change-o: room to work

1. The Orca Whale Submarine

Water Proof Shelving Required

A finely tuned machine with a supercharged flow engine requires a lot of small parts, electronic components, and a waterproof skin. Before the ocean, each Killer Whale Sub lived in bins on shelves. Thankfully, a marine enthusiast decided to release it into it’s natural habitat (for a paltry $100,000).
