A magazine issue spotlighting objects with multiple purposes is a portmanteau itself

Dodo Magazine has released its new issue, Multi, with a twist that reflects the issue's theme. Dodo is about recapturing some of the fun of childhood with advice and instructions for finding hijinks in everyday, adult life.

The Multi issue approaches this by turning the spotlight on objects that serve multiple purposes. Items spotlighted in the issue run from daily multi-taskers like the Swiss Army Knife, to crazy combinations like a drinking helmet, to futuristic inventions like a kitchen robot, to fictionally multifunctional fixtures like Inspector Gadget. Other articles suggest ways to inject fun into an otherwise monotone day, such as typing a random string of numbers into your phone and seeing what happens next.
