• Pizza Cake: Please Let This Exist

    Pizza Cake: Please Let This Exist

    No the Pizza Cake isn’t a cake that’s been decorated to look like a pizza. That would have just been disappointing. Instead, it’s a pie styled to look like a cake with nothing but layer upon layer of greasy, cheesy, and delicious pizza slices. And it’s awesome. It does not exist yet. But it could. However, that will only happen if Canadians really, really, really want it. A potential addition to Boston Pizza’s summer menu (for their Canadian outlets only), [...]

  • Da Vinci Notebook Uses Waterproof Paper Made From Stone

    Da Vinci Notebook Uses Waterproof Paper Made From Stone

    Instead of using regular paper made from wood pulps, the Da Vinci Notebook is made from stone paper. That’s right, stone — those hard, solid, nonmetallic mineral matters you see on the ground every single day. To be exact, it uses the calcium carbonate on rocks for 80% of the paper, which are then bonded with non-toxic resin that takes up the other 20%. The calcium carbonate is sourced from the waste materials of marble quarries and offcuts, which are [...]

  • Disco Hammock Brings Retro Party Aesthetic To Your Camping Gear

    Disco Hammock Brings Retro Party Aesthetic To Your Camping Gear

    Ever hit a club and thought to yourself, “This place needs a hammock.”  Well, it makes perfect sense. You get too tired from dancing, you take a breather in that hanging sack over there. Same when you get a little too drunk, too stoned, or too sad after being rejected by the fifth girl you tried grinding on in the dance floor — a hammock just sounds like the perfect place to relax and reboot your senses. With all the [...]

  • Ficks Fortifier Is A Hangover-Minimizing Cocktail Garnish

    Ficks Fortifier Is A Hangover-Minimizing Cocktail Garnish

    Alcohol is fun.  That’s why we drink it.  Lots of it, in fact. And we willingly live through the consequences of drinking too much, from carrying cab driver napkins to throwing up at work to waking up in Canada with no idea how we got there.  But what if you can imbibe the same amount of hooch while minimizing the less-than-desirable effects?  That’s exactly what Ficks Cocktail Fortifier claims to bring to your mixology kit. An all-natural cocktail fortifier, it [...]

  • UCO Grilliput Duo Is An Actual Grill That Fits Inside A 13-Inch Tube

    UCO Grilliput Duo Is An Actual Grill That Fits Inside A 13-Inch Tube

    There’s no shortage of portable grills in the market. In fact, we’ve featured a bunch here, such as City Boy Picnic Grill, Fold Flat Grill, and Fuego Element Portable.  So far, though, we haven’t seen anything that can pack as small as the UCO Grilliput Duo, which crams an entire barbecue rig inside a single tube. Measuring just 11.4 inches long and 0.9 inches in diameter when packed for transport, there’s literally no way you can’t find space for it [...]

  • Aesent Claims To Be World’s Most Comfortable Tent With An Inflatable Base

    Aesent Claims To Be World’s Most Comfortable Tent With An Inflatable Base

    We can’t exactly be sure of Aesent’s claim as the world’s most comfortable tent until we take it out for a test drive ourselves, but we must give props where it’s due: that integrated inflatable base definitely does give it a unique hook.  No more lugging an extra mattress around during camping trips — just pump air into your tent’s floor and you’re set. Comfort isn’t just about having a soft horizontal surface to lay your head on, but having [...]

  • boxGATE Is A Pop-Up Bar And Grill Made From Shipping Containers

    boxGATE Is A Pop-Up Bar And Grill Made From Shipping Containers

    Setting up from behind your Legacy Power Wagon isn’t a bad way to hold a tailgate party.  I have to admit, though, your party’s going to feel pretty lame when someone sets up a boxGATE just across the way. A pop-up bar and grill, it can be transported as a regular-looking shipping container measuring 8 x 20 feet — similar to what you see being hauled by trucks at the local docks.  Once it gets to the lot where you’re [...]

  • Why Go To Space On A Rocket When You Can Do It With This Balloon For $75K

    Why Go To Space On A Rocket When You Can Do It With This Balloon For $75K

    The age of space tourism is upon us.  And while everybody else is preparing to launch their spacecrafts with rocket engines and other traditional propulsion methods, turns out someone else has another manner of high-altitude flight in mind — balloons.  Seriously, that’s exactly what World View is doing with their balloon capsule outer space rides. Granted, we have a feeling the flight mechanism behind this helium balloon spacecraft is a lot more complicated than what goes on with hot air [...]

  • Raven MPV7100S Combines Lawn Mower, ATV, And Generator In One Machine

    Raven MPV7100S Combines Lawn Mower, ATV, And Generator In One Machine

    Ride-on mowers and ATVs share enough in common that combining them into a single machine does make some amount of sense.  Just install a blade system that you can attach and detach at will, and you’ve got yourself a ride that can clear large fields one moment and drive around farm roads the next.  That’s exactly what they did with the Raven MPV7100S, a triple-duty workhorse that plays the role of mower, utility vehicle, and even generator. Not only will [...]

  • Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    We’ve seen a cupholder for bicycles before, but so far, I haven’t really found one that I can buy.  Hey, people who commute to work on bikes need to carry their morning coffee, too.  Maybe Bookman’s Cup Holder will finally be the one to bring bicycle riders that convenience. Designed to mount right on the bike, you simply attach it onto the handlebars using the integrated spring clamp with the cup area hanging out.  Again, make sure it’s hanging out, [...]

    Electrafin Conversion Kit Adds Motorized Powertrain To Kayaks And Paddleboards

    Life is so much easier when machines do our hard work.  It’s why we taught robots to clean the house.  It’s why we put electric motors in our bicycles and skateboards.  And it’s why somebody built Electrafin, a motorized drive for kayaks, paddleboards, and longboards. Made by Current Drives, it’s an electric motor conversion kit designed to quickly install on existing gear, letting you enjoy a leisurely cruise without having to swing a paddle the entire duration.  No more tired [...]

    Insect Shield Outdoor Blanket Ensures Mosquito-Free Camping And Picnics

    Laying down a blanket in the park for an early evening picnic?  Sounds fun.  Gross and dirty flies diving into your food?  Not so much.  Getting bit by disease-carrying mosquitoes?  Even worse.  Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be a problem.  Just trade in your Walkbag Picnic Mat for an Insect Shield Outdoor Blanket and drive all the pesky arthropods away. When laid down on the ground, the blanket will repel skeetos, fleas, ticks, flies and a whole load of other [...]

  • London Underground Tube Tent Fits 72 People For An Instant Subway Party

    London Underground Tube Tent Fits 72 People For An Instant Subway Party

    Your VW Camper Tent is cool and all, but when providing shelter for an army of your friends, you need something bigger than a retro Type 2 van.  You know, like a subway train.  That’s exactly what you get with the London Underground Tube Tent. Made by Mind the Gap, it’s a life-sized rendition of the actual Northern Line carriages used in the London Underground in temporary shelter form.  It’s ridiculous.  The darn thing is so big you can have [...]

    This Air Freshener Smells Like Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

    Making a room smell like flowers, fruits, and trees is great and all, but why do that when you can permeate the space with the smell of delicious cinnamon rolls?  At least, that’s the idea behind the Cinnabon Air Freshener, which covers up a room’s natural (or unnatural) odors with the fragrance of the tasty breakfast treat. Made by Air Wick in partnership with the famous baked goods chain, the air freshener offers a refreshing break from the boring roster [...]

    The Mini Museum is a desktop display case that holds some of the most interesting specimen artifacts in the world.  And you can have it sitting right on your desk. Created by Hans Fex, it’s a portable collection that contains small chunks of rare artifacts, duly cataloged and labeled for your daily perusal.  These aren’t fake replicas, either — instead, they’re supposed to be real deal authentic curiosities, containing bits of legit items that he has procured over the years.

    Cork Globe Pins Down Your Globetrotting Adventures

    Travel scratch maps are fun and all, but wouldn’t you rather mark all the places you’ve traveled around the planet on a spinning world globe? Now you can with the Cork Globe. Designed by Chiaki Kawakami, it’s an erstwhile standard three-dimensional raised relief model of the world where you can see all the continents and countries in the planet. Except the entire thing is covered in a corkboard material, allowing you to tack pins onto the places you’ve previously visited. [...]

  • Farmer’s Fridge: A Vending Machine That Sells Fresh Produce

    Farmer’s Fridge: A Vending Machine That Sells Fresh Produce

    We normally associate vending machine with cheap junk food, dispensing candy bars, sodas, chips, and even pizza. But who says it can’t be used for purchasing fresh vegetables, too? That’s exactly what Farmer’s Fridge peddles. Billed as a “veggie machine,” it’s a refrigerated (all produce is kept in ideal temperatures) vending machine that sells nothing but fresh salads. Everything is made on the same day, with the machine getting a new batch every 10AM (all unsold salads from the previous [...]

    Sosu Barrel-Aged Sriracha: Your Favorite Hot Sauce Fermented In Whiskey Barrels

    Alcohol tastes good when you put it in barrels to age for a while. So why not try the same with everyone’s favorite hot sauce? That’s exactly what Sosu Sauces did with the Sosu Barrel-Aged Sriracha. From the same guys that gave the world the similarly quirky Srirachup (a sriracha catsup), the new sauce combines the immensely popular Thai condiment with the craft of fermentation. Taste is described as spicy and fruity, with a lingering smokiness from the oak barrels. [...]

  • Spark SP1 Sleeping Bag Folds Down Into A Pint-Sized Bundle

    Spark SP1 Sleeping Bag Folds Down Into A Pint-Sized Bundle

    A sleeping bag will either take a good chunk of space in your sleeping bag or add a big lump of bulk when strapped to any part of your gear. That’s just how it goes. And we live with it. That doesn’t have to be the case, however, with the incredibly minimalist Spark SP1. Made by Sea to Summit, it’s a minimal-packing sleeping bag that can fold into an unusually compact bundle, making for the perfect companion to your Salomon [...]
