    Bottlecamo Hides Your Beer In A Steel Bottle, Keeps It Cold

    Koozies are great for keeping beer cold while you’re drinking it.  And while that’s awesome, they really don’t do anything else.  If you want a slightly more helpful drinking companion, you might want to trade in your favorite koozie for the Bottlecamo. Just like a koozie, the contraption is designed to wear over a bottle of beer, keeping it insulated from the warm temperature of your hands while you nurse it throughout the night.  Designed to do a bit more [...]

Made by Cloud Collective, the home modules can collapse flat-packed, making them easy to transport and square away.  Just pile the flat-packed pieces to your Legacy [...]

    Shark Bait No More: Radiator Shark-Deterrent Wetsuits

    Sharks are scary and mean.  When you’re in the water and they want to eat you, they probably will.  And no amount of “But shark, I’m only photographing the marine life so I can post on Facebook and have people press Like” will save you.  That’s why you should have worn Radiator’s Shark-Deterrent Wetsuits.  Designed for divers and surfers, the garments offer the same thermal insulation, abrasion resistance, and buoyancy assistance that you get from usual wetsuits, but reinforces it [...]

    Hyperloop: Elon Musk Details His Proposed High-Speed Mass Transit System

    Quintessential entrepreneur-slash-mad-scientist Elon Musk just detailed his concept for the high-speed mass transit system called Hyperloop that he’s been teasing us with for months.  And it genuinely sounds cool as heck, sending a whole lot of engineering nerds into a collective dance of joy.  Well, something like it, anyway. The basics: it’s a pod-based transport system that can get passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles (and vice versa) in around 30 minutes; Musk estimates it will cost around $6 [...]

  • Defender Anti-Theft Backpack Is A Pickpocket’s Worst Nightmare

    Defender Anti-Theft Backpack Is A Pickpocket’s Worst Nightmare

    People carrying backpacks are prime targets for pickpockets.  It’s easy enough to unzip a compartment and take what’s inside without alerting the dude carrying the pack.  That’s why it’s usually a bad idea to keep valuable and important items in exterior pouches; however, stuffing them deep in the main compartment usually makes retrieving them difficult — not ideal for stuff like passports, credit cards, smartphones and cash.    The Defender Anti-Theft Backpack offers a compromise. While the name evokes images of [...]

    ASAP Is A Solar Powered Affordable Lifeguard Rescue Craft

    Lifeguards are awesome.  If you’re drowning a long ways out of the shore, though, there’s a very real chance they won’t be able to swim fast enough to get you while you struggle against the depths.  Ideally, you’d want your lifeguards with access to a Yamaha VXR Waverunner waiting by the shore.  If that’s not quite in the Baywatch budget, though, the ASAP Electric Watercraft might offer a more suitable compromise. Designed by Ross Kemp, it’s, basically, a more affordable [...]

    Quickboat Folding Boat Can Assemble In Three Minutes

    We’re no stranger to folding boats around here and are continually impressed with the way designers are able to innovate on them.  The Quickboat, however, has to take the cake when it comes to making a remarkable impression, allowing a single person to get it ready to hit the water in under three minutes. Not only can you assemble it on your own in 180 seconds (the company claims, even with a beer in hand), you can team up with [...]

  • Hi-Reflective Umbrella Makes You Easy To Spot At Night

    Hi-Reflective Umbrella Makes You Easy To Spot At Night

    When it rains at night, a trusty umbrella works just as well to keep you dry.  Problem is, rain makes it doubly hard to see at night, so motorists will find it even tougher to notice when you’re crossing the street.  That won’t be the case with this Hi-Reflective Umbrella. Designed by Yee-Ling Wan, it comes with a reflective canopy that will bounce light off to make you plenty easy to spot in the middle of the night.  That way, [...]

    Swiss Knife Replacement: The Gerber GDC Everyday Carry Tools

    As awesome as pocket multi-tools are, many of the flip-out tools end up just downright hard to use.  Between the bulky handle and the tool’s tiny size, they just end up really tough to work with.  As an alternative, you may want to consider carrying these Gerber GDC Everyday Carry Tools instead. Instead of multi-tools, the set consists of individual mini-tools geared for specific purposes, ensuring that each one is perfectly functional.  They can be squared away in a pocket, [...]

    Google Japan’s Colorful Office Interior Pics

    Google’s offices have long been a source of fascination for outsiders, with colorful and imaginative designs that are a downright refreshing break from the normally drab and industrial atmospheres of traditional offices.  The company’s new Google Japan office is no different, incorporating Japan’s lively culture and history into each of the office’s numerous spaces. Designed by Tokyo-based Klein Dytham Architecture, the original design borrowed heavily from traditional Japanese fabric prints and contemporary anime, which, we imagine, is already a large [...]

    +Pool Will Put A Public Pool In The Middle Of NYC’s East River

    I’ve always thought Kickstarter is the best place to raise funding for ridiculously ambitious and off-the-wall ideas, which is why it’s a little disappointing to see so few of it and so many of erstwhile humdrum projects.  The New York-based +Pool  (pronounced as PlusPool) definitely embraces the crazy, though, with its grand plan of putting up a public swimming pool that floats on the river, so you can swim “in the river” without actually coming in contact with dirty river [...]

  • Shake Bag Is Like Having A Sand Proof Beach Tote

    Shake Bag Is Like Having A Sand Proof Beach Tote

    There’s no escaping it: when you hit the beach, you come home with sand in your bag, littered over everything you stashed in there.  Unless, of course, you hit the beach carrying a Quirky Shake Bag. A women’s tote bag, it comes with a mesh bottom that automatically lets out those tiny grains of sand, so none of them gets stuck inside.  Whether the sand gets kicked in there accidentally or came attached to the Hi Sun Beach Blanket you [...]

    WalkBag Backpack Transforms Into A Beach Blanket

    Bringing a blanket along for a little night swimming at the public pool or a picnic in the park can be a hassle.  It’s big and thick and takes a huge amount of space in your day bag.  The WalkBag solves this problem by creating a blanket that also doubles as a backpack so you’ve got one less thing to worry about carrying. In bag mode, it’s a mid-sized rucksack/duffel bag with a zipper closure, which should allow you to [...]

    These Metrodeck Playing Cards Are Made From Subway Fare Cards

    You love poker.  And you love your art school friends.  Whenever they come over, though, playing Hold ‘Em is the last thing they’re interested in doing.  So you kill time either watching art house films, listening to obscure bands on vinyl, or discussing the finer points of existentialism over growlers of craft beer.  LOL.  Yeah, you need to bring a little normalcy into this social circle before the entire group falls off the edge and turns into lifelong hipsters.  The [...]

    Cinch To Hang Lets You Install Hooks Onto Trees Without Nails, Spikes Or Ropes

    When you’re camping, it’s not that hard to turn nature into your giant storage space: just hammer a couple of nails on a tree bark (use ThumbSaver if you don’t want to smash your fingers or something) and you’ll have hooks to hang all the gear you brought along.  Problem is, the damage and scarring they do to trees isn’t something you’re supposed to be inflicting.  You know, leave no trace and all that.  Cinch To Hang offers a more [...]

    Star Trek Wine

    Regular things always seem better when they’re branded with your favorite movie franchise, whether it’s GI Joe Sunglasses, Star Trek Bathrobes or Star Wars Coffee.  Alcohol supplies are no exception, which is why you’ll probably want to stock your basement with the Star Trek Wine. Granted, these things aren’t nearly geeky enough to soften the gruffest Trekker among us.  I mean, if I’m drinking Star Trek wine, they might as well make it look like Romulan Ale or something, right?  [...]
