    Sprout Is A Pencil That Turns Into A Plant

    Remember the Pooleaf, those ballpoint pens that look like an indoor plant when bundled together into a cup? Yeah, that was pretty cool. These Sprout Pencils can also turn into a plant, except instead of artificial plastic flora, it can grow into real herbs when buried in soil. A pencil with a seed inside, you can use it like any regular pencil for writing, sketching, and tapping on the desk any time you get anxious and fidgety. Rather than merely [...]

  • ToastyMUG Keeps Your Hands Toasty While Sipping Hot Coffee

    ToastyMUG Keeps Your Hands Toasty While Sipping Hot Coffee

    There’s a reason why they put handles on coffee mugs — most people simply don’t want to burn their hands trying to enjoy a steaming cup of hot morning coffee. Apparently, not everyone likes to do that. Some people, as it turns out, are more Daenerys Stormborn in their relationship with high temperatures, preferring to cup their hands around the mugs to keep them toasty. Really. The ToastyMUG was created for them. Designed by Sabrina Fossi, it’s a glazed ceramic [...]

  • SILIC Hydrophobic Shirt Repels Sweat, Stains And Other Liquids

    SILIC Hydrophobic Shirt Repels Sweat, Stains And Other Liquids

    The SILIC Shirt is a hydrophobic garment that will ward off any sweat, liquid or food that touches the fabric. Basically, it’s a shirt that never gets dirty. Which is awesome, because that makes it a shirt you can wear everyday without washing. Just like your favorite pair of selvedge jeans (which, if we’re being honest, barely see the insides of a washing machine twice a year). It’s pretty rad. Spill soda on your shirt and all the beverage just [...]

    Slickynotes Are Like Post-Its That Cling To Surfaces Without Adhesive

    We don’t know if anyone’s in the market for a Post-It pad with a fresh twist, but that’s definitely what Slickynotes bring to the table. No novelty gimmick as most adhesive note pads here — just a clever new design that both eliminates the adhesive component and gives folks a reusable backside. Made by Ecostatic Inc., it looks like a regular stationery at first glance. Check the side that sticks to surfaces, though, and you’ll notice there’s no strip of [...]

    Cabela ColorPhase Changes Camouflage Color To Blend In The Environment

    You can wear a camouflage outfit head to toe, but if it doesn’t blend perfectly with the surroundings, you’re still not going to disguise your presence in the vicinity.

Cabela’s ColorPhase helps you cut down on the amount of gear to stock in the closet with a color-changing camouflage design that makes it suitable for use all-year round. Using temperature-activated dye, the camouflage [...]

    Big Rig Pedal Powered Desk Charges Your Laptop, Lets You Exercise While Working

    The Big Rig is a large work desk and stationary bike combo that also happens to be a kinetic generator, producing power from your pedaling motions that you can use to charge gadgets, power laptops and electrocute yourself for whatever reason it might serve you.  Sure, you may laugh at someone who chooses to torture themselves with bicycling endlessly just to create trickles of power, but when the apocalypse happens and the power grid goes down, whoever owns one of [...]

    Sugru Magnet Kit Combines Hacking Putty And Magnets To Amazing Results

    We love Sugru.  Even though to this day, we still can’t understand how it manages to stick to everything.  We just accept it as magic, a genuine product of modern sorcery that enchants and beguiles.  Like Kate Upton’s runway walk.  Or something equally as awe-inspiring.  Because the wizards at Sugru knows we’re not as smart as them, they decided to spoonfeed us with one of the cleverest applications for their MacGyver compound: the Sugru Magnet Kit. Unlike the hacking putty [...]

    Wipebook Is An Erasable Notebook Reminding Us Of A Whiteboard But Better

    A tablet paired with a stylus can take the place of a sketchbook or a notebook for jotting down ideas, scribbling notes, and doodling as soon as inspiration strikes.  Still, there’s something that feels more organic when you’re bending over to put pen to paper, which is why some people still opt for stringing a notebook and a pen along.  My biggest beef with notebooks?  Fill one up and you’ll have to buy another, a problem that doesn’t exist with [...]

    E-Volo, The Two-Passenger, 18-Rotor Volocopter Takes First Flight

    Helicopters are awesome.  However, they’re also all sorts of complicated to build.  And while standards are in place to ensure their propelling machineries don’t give out easy, a single failure can send the whole thing crashing down.  Not the case with the E-Volo VC200, an 18-rotor electric volocopter we covered initially in the design and development phase here. Basically, it’s a giant version of those quadcopter drones everyone’s been playing with (vertical takeoff, vertical landing, battery powered, joystick-operated and all [...]
