  • Coffeebrewer Lets You Make Brewed Coffee On-The-Go In Just Two Minutes

    Coffeebrewer Lets You Make Brewed Coffee On-The-Go In Just Two Minutes

    Just like your Star Wars Dark Side Instant Coffee, you cook the Grower’s Cup Coffeebrewer by simply pouring hot water. Unlike that, it comes packaged in its own brewing assembly, allowing you to enjoy the taste of brewed coffee with the convenience of its “just add hot water” counterparts. Designed by Ulrik Rasmussen, the Coffeebrewer comes in a bag with a built-in pour over drip filter mechanism. It’s a design that, Ulrik says, was inspired by the convenience of tea bags. […]

  • ChocoChicken Will Serve Chocolate-Flavored Fried Chicken

    ChocoChicken Will Serve Chocolate-Flavored Fried Chicken

    Combining two, three, and more types of food has led to strangely scrumptious creations in the fastfood industry, with adventurously questionable dishes (see Waffle Taco) showing up on the menu becoming the norm, rather than the exception.  We have no idea how ChocoChicken’s chocolate and fried chicken mash-up is going to taste like, but we’re definitely intrigued enough to want to try a piece (okay, a tub). A new fast food venture from Adam Fleischman (that dude behind the popular […]

    Taco Bell Waffle Taco: Yes, It’s Going To Be A Thing Now

    Grabbing a McMuffin for breakfast is great and all, but we all need a change in menu every once in a while.  And if there’s a Taco Bell near the McDonald’s where you get your morning take-out, the new Waffle Taco looks like it will make for quite the delicious alternative. A part of Taco Bell’s upcoming breakfast lineup, the new food item puts the classic waffle in portable form, wrapping it up around syrup-drenched cheese, sausage, and scrambled eggs […]

    Ethos E30 Boat Allows Modular Layouts For Adapting To Different Uses

    When you buy a boat and choose to equip it with a specific layout, you’re usually stuck with that. Unless you’re willing to do a whole load of work to remove this bench there or add a small table here, there just aren’t a lot of options available. Not the case with Ethos E30, which lets you customize the deck layout any time you feel like it. Made by Italian boat builders Azure Embark, it uses an open deck layout […]

    Color Changing Smart Lid Warns You When The Coffee Is Too Hot

    Do you ever find yourself burning your tongue from foolishly drinking coffee that’s just way too hot? Do you find yourself doing this multiple times a week? Do you remember the experiments where the rats were so dumb, they kept going after the cheese even though they will be electrocuted every time? Yeah, something to think about. At any rate, the Smart Lid is exactly for you. At first glance, it looks just like a plastic lid for on-the-go coffee […]

  • Cubic Rubber Band: Yes, It Exists

    Cubic Rubber Band: Yes, It Exists

    Rubber bands work well enough for holding rolled up piles of paper, bundling pens, and shooting straight out of rubber band machine guns. And when something works that well, few people find the need to change them. But there will still be those few people. One of those people, apparently, just designed these Cubic Rubber Bands. Created by Japanese design studio Nendo, it turns the normally two-dimensional rubber band into a three-dimensional object. Seriously. Not only does it have full […]

    Google Smart Contact Lens Lets Diabetes Patients Monitor Their Glucose Levels By The Second

    A smart contact lens does seem like the logical evolution of eye-mounted wearable gadgets — why look like a weirdo with Google Glass on your face when you can do everything on the sly? And while Google’s new Smart Contact Lens doesn’t exactly come with Glass’ functionality (cramming that much hardware into a piece of plastic that fits over your cornea probably isn’t feasible at this point in time), it does provide a glimpse into smart eyewear’s potential future. Aimed […]

    Robots Taking Over: Amazon Teases With Prime Air 30 Minute Package Delivery By Drones

    With the advent of affordable drones, plenty of things that were previously difficult and expensive have now become accessible and affordable.  Overhead photography and video work, for instance.  Same with delivering a payload of explosives into enemy camp (by explosives, we mean turd bombs; and by enemy camp, we mean the annoying neighbors).  We guess those same drones will make for a great courier delivery service, too, and that’s exactly what Amazon is planning with their Prime Air program. Amazon’s […]

    Colour Me Shave Lathers Your Face In Brightly-Colored Gels

    I love shaving my face everyday – said no guy ever.  You scrape your face smooth Monday morning and by the time you wake up Tuesday, there’s another batch of stubble growing.  Over the years, you’ve worked to make the ritual more memorable with novelty: a laser-shooting beard trimmer, a goatee manscaper, and a GQ bathroom mirror where you shave every morning like a male model.  If you want to inject even more cheap entertainment into the mix, we have […]

    Quirky Launches Four New Smart, Web-Connected Products

    Quirky launched four new products at Engaget Expand, each one providing solutions for real-world problems (or pseudo-problems, depending on how you look at it) by taking advantage of tiny sensors, mobile apps, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Egg Minder While I, personally, could never fathom the use for a “smart egg tray,” we guess there are plenty of people out there who will need one.  Otherwise, we couldn’t imagine a contraption like the Egg Minder ever existing. Basically, it’s a high-tech egg […]

Made by Lick Me I’m Delicious, it’s a creamy frozen dessert that glows in the dark.  Why?  So you can look like […]

    Safari Tent Lets You Camp With Complete Freedom Of Movement

    Pocket Shark Is An Indestructible Marker

    Why does the world need an indestructible marker?  We’re not sure.  Maybe you get an uncontrollable urge to crush your Sharpies with a hammer every time you get stressed.  Maybe you use them to vandalize bathrooms in the middle of an active warzone.  Or maybe you live in a radioactive lab where regular plastic markers melt within five minutes of exposure.  Whatever the case, the Pocket Shark is putting itself out there as the only indestructible marker you need.

    Sure, you can fill up your usual water bottle with beer so you can hit the road riding atop your CB4 Hunting Bike with some refreshing suds on tap.  If you have a bigger appetite for yeast-fermented malt than would fit inside a 1-liter travel bottle, however, the Growler Cage might prove a more appropriate accessory. A bottle cage sized to fit 64-oz growlers, it’s designed to replace the standard bottle cages installed on your bike.  Whether you’re transporting a […]

    Quintessential entrepreneur-slash-mad-scientist Elon Musk just detailed his concept for the high-speed mass transit system called Hyperloop that he’s been teasing us with for months.  And it genuinely sounds cool as heck, sending a whole lot of engineering nerds into a collective dance of joy.  Well, something like it, anyway. The basics: it’s a pod-based transport system that can get passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles (and vice versa) in around 30 minutes; Musk estimates it will cost around $6 […]

    Wally 55 Power Boat Boasts Four Motors, Four Drives And A Whole Lot Of Style

    We don’t know if James Bond likes to take a yacht out during his days off.  If he does, though, we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s anything like the Wally 55, a luxury yacht styled like a giant speedboat. Billed as “the ultimate open sports cruiser,” the yacht/powerboat hybrid brings highly aggressive, hard-edged lines that makes those expensive yachts you see in the marina look like boats for stuffy, boring people.  Seriously, this thing ‘s hull looks like it’s built […]

    Bringing one of those neck pillows along so you can take a nap during transit is fine enough.  Except the bulky shape of those things make them difficult to squeeze into a packed bag.  The NapAnywhere remedies that problem by being able to store flat while providing even more comfortable head and neck support. Created by physician Ravi Shamaiengar, it’s based upon those same U-shaped neck pillows most travelers currently use to take quick naps while traveling.  Except it packs […]
