    Oru Bay+ Is The Extra-Comfy Folding Kayak You’ve Always Wanted

    Remember the Oru Kayak, the lightweight canoe that folds into a portfolio-sized case for easy portability? It was awesome. Like all good things, of course, it can get better and that’s what they did with the Oru Bay+, an upgraded version of the original boat. Like its predecessor, the Bay+ folds in an origami-like manner, allowing folks to quickly and easily bundle the entire boat for transport. At 32 x 28 x 13 inches folded up, not only is it […]

  • Hydrapak Stash Is A Water Bottle That Collapses Into A 2-Inch Thick Puck

    Hydrapak Stash Is A Water Bottle That Collapses Into A 2-Inch Thick Puck

    We’ve seen many collapsible water bottles released over the last couple of years. And while they do get the job done of saving you space when the bottle is empty, few we’ve seen come close to the elegance of the Hydrapak Stash. While it looks like a regular cylinder-shaped water bottle when all filled up, the walls are actually constructed from soft TPU, allowing it to fold like fabric when the bottle is not in use. Only the top and […]

  • The Taurus Curve May Be The Most Comfortable Handgun You Will Ever Carry

    The Taurus Curve May Be The Most Comfortable Handgun You Will Ever Carry

    At first look, it seems ridiculous: a handgun with a curved shape. As in, when you set it down on a table, it doesn’t lay down flat, but curves upward on either end, similar to those weird curved smartphones. And while those smartphones were little more than a technological show-of-feat, the unusual shape of the Taurus Curve is actually intended to serve an important purpose. Described as an “ultra-comfortable, ultra-reliable personal defense handgun,” it’s designed to fit snug when worn […]

  • Pack Your Own Frozen Yogurt Snack With YO2GO

    Pack Your Own Frozen Yogurt Snack With YO2GO

    Packing food from home is always more economical than buying grub as you go. And that holds just as true for a frozen yogurt snack as it does for the sandwiches you brown bag for lunch. And while most any travel mug can serve as a decent frozen yogurt container, this YO2GO should make for a more suitable on-the-go parfait cup. Made by AdNArt, it’s a travel cup with two distinct compartments: a main area for your yogurt and a […]

    Don’t Worry, This Facehugger Dog Leash Won’t Implant Your Pet With Alien Parasites

    If your dog actually watched movies when he sits down with you in front of the TV, there’s no way he can actually stay calm while you put this Alien Facehugger Dog Leash on him. I mean, look at the darn thing. But since he doesn’t, he’ll probably just stand there and let you wrap the second-stage Xenomorph’s bony appendages with nary a protest. Made by Etsy seller GCFX, it’s a dog harness clad in the likeness of the parasitoid […]

  • Being Able To Split In Half Makes The ALEX Bottle Infinitely Easier To Clean

    Being Able To Split In Half Makes The ALEX Bottle Infinitely Easier To Clean

    If there’s any knock to be made on water bottles, it’s the fact that they’re tough to clean. I mean, they’re bottles, so they’re narrow and taper at some point — being hard to clean kind of comes with that territory. ALEX is a new water bottle that overcomes that obstacle with a simple redesign. Like other portable water bottles, you can fill it with your favorite beverages to take along to the gym, the park, or wherever you end […]

  • Sunfire Built A Machine That Transforms Water Into Fuel And It Works

    Sunfire Built A Machine That Transforms Water Into Fuel And It Works

    One of the big motivations for exploring alternative forms of energy is the eventual scarcity of hydrocarbon fuels. Simply put, the well will probably dry up at some point. What do we do then? A German company called Sunfire claims to have developed a process that will allow them to manufacture hydrocarbon fuels using just water and carbon dioxide. The Dresden-based operation recently unveiled a machine that uses its “Power to Liquid” technology, which performs the conversion through a combination […]

    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

    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 […]

    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.

  • 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 […]
