  • YETI Hopper Carryable Cooler Bag Promises To Keep Ice Frozen For Days

    YETI Hopper Carryable Cooler Bag Promises To Keep Ice Frozen For Days

    Coolers are awesome, letting you keep food and drinks cold for extended periods without a fridge anywhere in sight.  And while many coolers are perfectly portable, their boxy dimensions are hardly discreet, paving the way for more fashionable, bag-like thermal containers, which, while they worked, don’t exactly perform to the same standards of ice preservation as full-fledged cooler boxes.  The upcoming YETI Hopper could change that. Styled to look like a zippered tote bag, it boasts “superior ice retention” that [...]

  • Field Synthetic Grass Hammock Is Mostly Maintenance Free

    Field Synthetic Grass Hammock Is Mostly Maintenance Free

    The Field Hammock is what would happen if you sliced a rectangular bed of grass from the ground and hung both of its ends on a tree.  You can lie down on it and swing suspended from the ground like a regular hanging bed, rocking gently left and right as you lull yourself into rest.  If we lived in a cartoon world where the laws of physics worked in hilarious ways, that is. Since we don’t, it’s just a clever [...]

    Tool Pen Screwdriver Changes Bits Like Pop-A-Point Pencils From Elementary School

    Somehow, I never saw the design of pop-a-point pencils (you should remember them from grade school) ever being used to make a screwdriver with interchangeable bits.  But someone did.  And it works so much better than I ever would have expected.  Called the Tool Pen, it’s the portable, multi-bit screwdriver you’ll actually want to carry around. Made by Taiwan-based Mininch, the tool is, literally, a pop-a-point screwdriver.  Just like the pencil counterpart, it comes with multiple bits stacked inside the [...]

    This 55×44-Inch Matador Pocket Blanket Can Fold Smaller Than Your Wallet

    Most picnic blankets are, generally, compact enough, able to fold into a neat bundle that you can easily slip into a bag.  But why not make them fold even smaller?  That’s exactly what they did with the Matador Pocket Blanket, a functional picnic blanket you can slip into your front jeans pocket. We’re not entirely sure how it’s able to fold so small.  I’ve used blankets that’s rated to sit four people before (two, if you’re laying down on the [...]

    Food mash-ups are definitely a thing these days.  Sometimes, it works, like the case with the Waffle Taco.  Sometimes, it doesn’t.  One look at this Churro Ice Cream Sandwich, though, and the watering in your mouth tells all you need to know about which camp it belongs in.

    Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley: This Toolbox Turns Into A Mobile Shelf

    You’re working on the car, both arms covered in a sleeveful of grease. You dig into your toolbag to get an O ring sitting in the bottom, smearing the rest of the tools with the same slime all over your arms. Bad idea. The Hazet Collapsible Tool Trolley lets you keep the same tools in one place while avoiding messy results.

    ZR Hoverboard: It’s Not The Flying Skateboard We Asked For, But We’ll Take It

    When I read someone made a hoverboard, I really thought our Back to the Future dreams are finally realized. Then I found out it wasn’t. And I was sad. But then I checked out the ZR Hoverboard and I wasn’t sad anymore. Total want! You know those hydro jetpacks that are attached to a jet ski’s propulsion then mounted on your body so you can fly over a body of water like a superhero? Well, this is the same thing.

    Hey Joe Coffee Mug: This Travel Mug Can Brew Its Own Coffee

    Most travel mugs do a great job of keeping your coffee at ideal temperatures.

    Amok Draumr Hammock Gives Campers A Flat, Stable, Bed-Like Cot

    As relaxing (and, in certain instances, as mesmerizing) as a hammock may be, it really doesn’t make for the most comfortable bed, giving you extremely limited options in sleeping positions. The Amok Draumr changes that, providing a flat bed-like sleeping surface that accommodates tossing and turning to your heart’s content. Rather than being suspended by ropes on two ends, the hammock is held up using straps on each of the two sides, which helps create a more stable line.  Inside the [...]

    TIK Just Might Be The Most Compact Way To Carry Your Keys

    Described as “the world thinnest and lightest keychain,” TIK isn’t just a clever way to bundle keys like the Orbitkey. Instead, it changes the way keys should look like, which makes for a less simple but considerably more streamlined solution. Instead of a regular key with a head, TIK uses keys with the head totally removed, allowing it to be dramatically smaller than regular keys by default. It still functions like a regular key (you insert it in the door and [...]

    KLAX Multi-Tool Lets You Weaponize A Piece Of Stick Into A Deadly Axe

    Just like the gazillion of multi-tools out there, KLAX can be used as a hammer, a hex wrench, and a ruler, among other things. Unlike them, however, the darn thing can attach to the end of a handle and immediately turn into a deadly axe that lets you live out your lumberjack (or axe murderer, whichever the case may be) fantasies. When detached from its handle, the device is slim enough to be slipped into your jeans’ back pocket, allowing you to walk [...]
