    TomTato Plant Produces Both Tomatoes And Potatoes

    Setting up a vegetable garden is fun and all, but wouldn’t a freaky garden filled with Frankenstein plants be more along your style?  Yeah, leave the conventional gardens to the neighborhood moms and plant yourself some TomTatos instead. Created by UK horticulture company Thompson and Morgan, it’s a hybrid plant that produces both tomatoes and potatoes.  No, not a single fruit that combines the two, but two separate ones — future french fries on the roots and future pasta sauce [...]

    Goateesaver Helps You Manscape The Perfect Goatee

    Keeping a goatee shaped to perfection isn’t all difficult, provided you have your wits completely about you when you’re shaving in the morning.  Between last night’s hangover, the wife nagging you to hurry up, and the kids screaming from the kitchen, though, performing a proper manscaping is beginning to prove harder than it used to be.  We guess it’s time you got yourself a Goateesaver. A shaving template, it’s, basically, a facial hair guard that covers up all the parts [...]

  • Manuka Gyroscope: Because Spinning Things That Look Like They’re Falling Over But Don’t Are Awesome

    Manuka Gyroscope: Because Spinning Things That Look Like They’re Falling Over But Don’t Are Awesome

    Many of us are familiar with the concept of a gyroscope, those rotating mechanisms that give erstwhile unstable objects balance by offering resistance to turns in any direction.  In fact, we’ve featured many products that use them, such as personal transporters and flying drones.  The Manuka Gyroscope, however, strips away all the function, using a bare gyroscope to let you perform tricks that amuse your legion of adoring fans.   And by fans, we mean your kids and other bored people [...]

    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 [...]

    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

    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

    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 [...]
