    These Goldfish Tea Bags Will Turn Your Cups Into Colorful Mini-Aquariums

    People have long gotten creative with their tea infusers, fashioning it into submarines, deep sea divers, and other objects of whimsy.  Yet, tea bags have remained the same boring little sacks they’ve always been.  At least, that was the case until these Goldfish Tea Bags came along. That’s right, when you dump these tea bags into a hot cup of water, they’ll look like colorful goldfish swimming in a bowl.  No more staring at a boring bag of leaves every […]

    Sushi Spray Lets You Spritz Your Food With Just A Little Soy Sauce

    A lot of Asian food, such as sushi, are designed to go well with a dish of soy sauce.  Problem is, when you dip the food in a little too much, the entire thing can taste a little too salty for its own good.  The world deserves a better way of putting the right amount of soy sauce onto our food and this Sushi Spray just might be the thing to do it. Made by Japanese company Fukuma Soy Sauce, […]

  • Ferrock Wants To Replace Cement As The Eco-Friendly Building Material Of The Future

    Ferrock Wants To Replace Cement As The Eco-Friendly Building Material Of The Future

    Cement is one of the most important construction materials.  That’s why we produce a ton of it.  That’s also why 5% of all man-made emissions actually come from cement production.  Yeah, it’s incredibly polluting.  Problem is, we can’t really get away from cement, considering we need it to build a whole lot of structures, from our roads to our buildings to our homes to our ultra-tough ping pong tables.  At least, not until we find a more eco-friendly alternative.  That’s […]

    Let This 15-Foot Abominable Snow Monster Guard Your Lawn This Christmas

    This Expandable FUGU Suitcase Can Go From Carry-On Size To Maximum Check-In Size At The Push Of A Button

    Luggage isn’t the kind of thing we typically see plenty of innovations on.  In the rare cases that we do, it’s usually minor stuff like adding a laptop stand here, a scooter there, or a modular system for more easily cramming into tight compartments.  This FUGU Luggage changes that, reinventing the travel essential into a whole other type of bag we’ve never seen before. Need a small carry-on for a short trip?  FUGU can play the part.  How about a […]

    Sriracha2Go Is The Portable Condiment Bottle Your Hot Sauce Craving Has Wanted Forever

    If life was fair, every place you eat in will have sriracha on tap, so you can lather every grub with the delicious spicy sauce like it was nobody’s business.  But life isn’t fair and sriracha isn’t everywhere, so if you’re addicted to the darn rooster sauce, you better bring your own supply.  And while you can always slip a bottle in your bag, we have a feeling the Sriracha2Go will be a much more convenient alternative. A pocket-sized, refillable […]

  • Fly Above The Water In This Unsinkable, All-Electric Quadrofoil

    Fly Above The Water In This Unsinkable, All-Electric Quadrofoil

    Boats don’t have legs because they don’t need legs to float in water.   This Quadrofoil, apparently, didn’t get the memo, with four stems propping the hull half a foot above the water surface. Unfortunately, those legs won’t allow the boat to walk, kick, or jump like normal legs would.  That’s because they aren’t actually legs, but hydrofoils, the wing-like structures some boats use to reduce drag to a point where you’re almost flying over the water, leading to an increase […]

    I’ve never put a horn on a bike, since I can always just scream at the top of my lungs if I need somebody to know I’m coming through.  But what would happen if an evil genie escaped from a bottle and stitched my mouth shut, so I cannot make a single sound anymore?  Well, I’ll probably buy one of these Mini Hornits, a bike horn and headlight combo that’s loaded with over two dozen different sounds to herald your […]

    Domo Screens Dull The Noise In Your Office And Look Amazing Doing it

    Depending on the kind of work that goes on there, open plan offices can be very noisy.   Simply put, the lack of barriers between you and everybody else makes it difficult to dull the cumulative sounds created by multiple conversations, ringing phones, and noisy machines.  Not to mention the occasional screams and loud laughter that pop up from somewhere once every hour (yes, the loud laughter is probably me).  Domo is a sound-absorbing screen system designed to help with that.

    If beard clippers can be better with lasers, then it only follows that everything is better with lasers.  No, really, that’s sound logic right there.  That’s why Aerial Burton’s True 3D Display technology, which projects images that float in the air the way we always imagined our holograms will look like, is so much better than glasses-aided fake 3D that mostly just makes me dizzy. Yep, this is 3D that uses the air around us as its display panel.  They, […]

    Knockout Turns Regular Bottles Into Beer-Bombing, Smoke-Blasting Gravity Bongs

    A bottle of beer is always a good thing.  But unless it’s got ridiculously high liver-punishing ABV, it’s just good, not awesome.  A bottle of beer with this Knockout attachment inserted into the mouth, however, is all manners of mind-blowing. Consisting of a mouthpiece and a tube with a valve at the end, you simply insert the tube into the bottle and fit the mouthpiece over the top (make sure it’s sealed, so none of the liquid spills).  Once it’s […]

    Japan’s about to reclaim the title for the fastest train in the world.  The country’s government just approved a plan to build a new train that uses magnetic levitation technology to send it soaring through the tracks at ridiculously high speeds.  Unlike their existing bullet trains, which travel at top speeds of 200-plus mph, this new one, called Chuo Shinkansen, is expected to fly through the tracks at top speeds of over 300 mph. The new train will be used […]

    Hospitals always creeped me out when I was a kid.  I imagined it teeming with all manners of viruses and contaminants.  Turns out, my childhood concerns weren’t exactly misguided, as Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI), the term for receiving infections from the hospital itself, is actually a very real problem.  While nothing beats the vigilance of hospital staff and a proper infection control system in place, a new product called PullClean seeks to eliminate some of the dangers.

    This Spray-On Bandage Will Emit Light To Signal Healing

    Putting a Bacon Band-Aid or some other bandage on an open wound is a great way to keep it covered up from potential agents of infection.  But it’s no help when trying to ascertain how well the wound is actually healing.  A new type of spray-on bandage, however, comes with a built-in feature that can give people some clues. Developed by Professor Conor Evans of Harvard Medical School, the bandage can measure the level of tissue oxygenation in the wound, […]

    We’ve seen plenty of portable devices that let you make fine espresso on the go, including contraptions like the Handpresso, the GSI Outdoors Mini Espresso Maker, and the Presso.  The Minipresso, however, just may be the most outdoor-friendly of the bunch, requiring no power to work while sporting very compact dimensions. Shaped like a small travel bottle, it measures just 6.95 inches long and weighs a mere 0.8 pounds, making it absolutely hassle-free to cram in a corner of a […]

A new study suggests it’s possible.  The catch?  You need a genetic mutation to accomplish such a state. A worm known as Caenorhabditis elegans was the subject of a series of experiments from a team led by Sean Curran of the USC Davis School of Gerontology and the Keck School of Medicine of USC.  […]

Unlike conventional emergency lamps and flashlights, it doesn’t use batteries that, due to their limited shelf life, can […]

Conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh and Swarthmore College, the study looked closely at the evolutionary links between ancient […]
