    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 [...]

    Someone Built A 3D-Printed Kayak And It’s Awesome

    Who says you can only build small toys and little trinkets with the current crop of desktop 3D printers?  Certainly not this dude, who built the World’s First 3D Printed Kayak. No, it’s not a toy kayak that can only ride around in pools and bathtubs.  Instead, it’s a fully-functional paddle boat that you can use along real bodies of water.  Just pick up a kayak paddle, hit the beach, and you’re good to go. Heck, the kayak even has [...]

  • Surfears Protect Your Ears In Water Without Shutting Out Ambient Sound

    Surfears Protect Your Ears In Water Without Shutting Out Ambient Sound

    Spending extended hours engaged in watersports sounds fun.  Experiencing ear inflammation and abnormal bone growth in the ear canal from extended exposure to water, cold air, dirt, and bacteria, though — not so much.   While you can wear ear plugs to block out all the nasty elements, they, pretty much, render you deaf to what’s going on, apart from potentially affecting your balance.  Surfears, a custom-designed set of earplugs, can change that. Boasting close to zero acoustic loss when worn, [...]

  • FootGolf: Kick Soccer Balls Into Holes On A Golf Course

    FootGolf: Kick Soccer Balls Into Holes On A Golf Course

    Golf’s leisurely pace can be incredibly relaxing (especially when you go around the fairway on a Golf Cart Hovercraft), but putting tiny balls into tiny holes can be absolutely frustrating.  It’s like trying to meditate while seeing Freddie Krueger every time you close your eyes — just doesn’t work.  Why can’t we play in a golf course with bigger holes instead?  We guess someone felt the same way and invented the FootGolf. Like golf, the object of the game is [...]

    What night be the logical future evolution for fitness trackers and wearable gadgets? Onboard kinetic generators that convert our everyday movements into usable energy so they never need to be plugged into a power source again. That may be a long time coming, though, since the facility for power generation hasn’t quite shrunk down to fit in a wristband yet.

    This Clever Mechanism Adds Foot Operated Brake To Your Skateboard

    Overspeeding isn’t typically a problem with skateboards.  Unless you’re riding downhill on a looooong stretch of road, that is.  Too bad skateboards don’t come with brakes.  At least, they didn’t used to.  Not anymore with the Apex V-Brake. Created by longtime skater and surfer Patrick McDowell, it’s a foot brake that sets up right by the board’s rear axle, allowing you to regulate downhill speed without burning a hole through your favorite pair of skate shoes (or downright losing your [...]

    Road Shower Mounts On Roof Racks, Delivers Hot Water When You Want It

    We’ve seen quite a few portable showers designed for keeping in cars.  Most of the time, though, they’re meant to go in the trunk or the boot, essentially requiring space you may not actually have to spare.   The Road Shower solves this by mounting on your roof rack instead. Since the water tank sits right on your roof, it’s exposed to the sun the entire time, so they designed it such that the sunlight will end up heating the water [...]
