    PowerSnorkel Lets You Snorkel At 40 Feet Deep

    Snorkeling is fun.  But it leaves you stuck by the surface, wishing you can get further down below where all the Mega Sharks roam.  Now you can with the PowerSnorkel, a free-floating hookah that lets you dive up to 39.6 feet without needing to strap a heavy oxygen tank on your back. Created by Power Dive, the rig is, basically, a floating oxygen pump constantly feeding you air through a hose.  Instead of having to stay on the surface in [...]

    Nike Dunk NG Lets You Wear Basketball Kicks To The Golf Course

    You love your Nike Dunks.  But basketball kicks aren’t exactly a functional fit when swinging at dimpled balls  in the green.  That was, until these Nike Dunk NG Golf Shoes showed up, which literally takes the classic basketball silhouette and infuses it with spikes on the soles. A far cry from the funny-looking shoes that are normal fare for golf courses, they actually look like real sneakers.  You know, the kind you can pair with a funny t-shirt and your [...]

    FishEyes Rod With Camera Gives Sport Fishermen An Underwater View

    Sick of casting a lure, waiting an hour and feeling a tug, only to reel it in and find you managed to catch a wonderful pair of boots swept into the water?   If you’d rather see what’s biting your hook before wetting yourself in excitement, you might want to trade up your favorite combo for the FishEyes Rod & Reel. Looking more like a controller for a fishing game than a rod and reel combo, it features  a camera on [...]

  • TRAMP-It Turns The Ground Into A Neverending Trampoline

    TRAMP-It Turns The Ground Into A Neverending Trampoline

    TRAMP-It are a pair of trampoline shoes that send you bouncing like you’re on a permanent trampoline. Designed to put a literal spring on your step, the footwear adds a flexible apparatus under the sole, allowing you to bounce with uncharacteristic vertical air.  It’s similar to those jumping stilts we’ve been seeing for quite some time, except there are no stilts to hold on to — the propelling mechanism is built right into the shoes. The TRAMP-It works similar to [...]

The setup consists of tables and shelving space that you can use to turn a corner of your site into a serviceable and organized kitchen.   Of course, you’ll have to equip it [...]

  • Kranium Uses Cardboard To Build A Bike Helmet’s Frame

    Kranium Uses Cardboard To Build A Bike Helmet’s Frame

    After making its way to shelves, desks and children’s playrooms,we guess we might as well use cardboard for bicycle helmets, too.  Surprisingly, it’s neither about novelty nor compromise as the Kranium cardboard helmet shows — it’s actually got plenty of upside over regular bike helmets. Created by Anirudha Surabhi, the new helmets use the same corrugated cardboard you can find at the supermarket, which should prove cheaper than current polystyrene head covers.  Paired with a clever design arrangement, the cardboard [...]

  • Segway X2 For The Golf Lovers In Your Life

    Segway X2 For The Golf Lovers In Your Life

    Not feeling riding the golf cart today?  How about hitting the course on the Segway x2 Golf, a golf-specific version of the popular personal transporter. Unlike the regular versions of the two-wheeled mobility device, this model isn’t likely to give you the best performance on sidewalks and pedestrian walkways.  Instead, it’s specifically calibrated to get you breezing over greens and fairways even faster than bulky golf carts due to its better maneuverability.  Plus, it’s only half as geeky-looking as the [...]

    Yes, that pool table sits in the middle of a swimming pool.  Just in case you want to play some pool while playing in the pool.  Or something like that. Sold by Opulent Items, it’s a real competition pool table for channeling your inner Mike Sigel (or Efren Reyes, if you play with no teeth).  Fashioned to stand in the middle of the water, it looks like the perfect way to shoot a game of nine-ball without having to leave [...]

  • Play Ping Pong On Concrete: Henge Tables

    Play Ping Pong On Concrete: Henge Tables

    You can play basketball on concrete.  You can play tennis on concrete.  Now, you can play ping pong on concrete, too, with the Henge Tables. Don’t worry, table tennis on concrete won’t make your balls flitter off like mad.  In fact,  the playing surface supposedly returns balls like regular tables and are conformant to the International Table Tennis Federation specification for bounce (a 23-cm. return).  It’s not approved for regulation games, though, as the rules require a white center portion, [...]

  • Waterskiing Chair For When You Are Too tired To Stand

    Waterskiing Chair For When You Are Too tired To Stand

    Under most situations, it makes sense to prefer sitting to standing.  Like when you’re on your desk, at the doctor’s office or riding a bicycle.   In case you’d like the same option for your water skiing this summer, hit the beach in this: the Waterskiing Chair. Far from a new innovation, this alternative water sports equipment first came to the scene 50 years ago.  And the only reason you haven’t used one yet is because the whole idea’s so dorky.   [...]

    Your home gym needs a new challenge.  Running on the gaming treadmill, cycling on a bike and hanging onto a rock climbing machine used to be fun — until you got bored out of your wits using them.  Here’s something new to keep workouts interesting for the next couple of weeks: MtEverClimb, a rope-climbing exerciser. Remember the horrific days of gym class when the teacher would make you climb those ropes at the gym?  Well, this is the exact same [...]

    33-in-One Golf Club Lets You Play Golf Without The Heavy Gear

    Serious golfers carry serious golf clubs in a big bag.  Let’s face it, though, you and me are far from aspiring for a spot on the next PGA Tour.  In fact, I only come to the course because you like smashing balls and sinking them into holes.  Next time, make your golf game more convenient by ditching the bag and taking the 33-in-One Golf Club instead. Looks like it’s every golf club my crappy-shooting ass will ever need all packed [...]

    ElliptiGO 3C Is A Three-Speed Elliptical Machine For The Road

    I don’t know how things are in your gym.  In the places I’ve worked out in, though, elliptical machines are consistently some of the most rarely used equipment and for good reason — they’re impossibly boring.  I don’t know if the ElliptiGO 3C bike is any more tolerable than those, but being outdoors and actually moving probably won’t hurt the experience. This latest model of the world’s first elliptical bike adds something that should make it even more interesting: a [...]

    WaveJet Surfboards Take Paddling Out Of Surfing

    Surfing is one the most fun activities and a great workout. But sitting on the board for hours waiting for that wave and then paddling back to catch another is a rewarding feeling only surfers can understand. However, gliding over the water on a jet ski is also fun.  Taking one of them every time you head down the water is a lot of work, though — you can’t exactly throw a jet ski in the trunk of your car.   The WaveJet [...]

    Bellicon Rebounder Is A Mini-Trampoline With A Unique Suspension System

    A trampoline is one of those things I have always wanted to buy, but never really got around to scoring one.  I am pretty sure it would be a great workout option cause all that bouncing has to be  exhausting. Plus imagine all the funny videos and mishaps that we could capture. Well, until I get around to getting a full size one, this mini trampoline, the Bellicon Rebounder sounds like a really enticing option right now. If you have always thought [...]

  • RC Tow Boat Lets You Drive And Wakeboard At The Same Time

    RC Tow Boat Lets You Drive And Wakeboard At The Same Time

    Water skiing has always been a two-person affair.  One guy drives the boat, another gets towed along while standing on skis (the guy laughing at you along the shoreline doesn’t count).  The Skier-Controlled Tow Boat changes that, allowing you to both glide on the water while running the boat at the exact same time. Don’t worry, there’s no voodoo magic involved (you don’t need to sacrifice chickens and deck yourself with corpse paint).   Instead, you can practice your acrobatic water [...]

    Lightest Basketball Shoes Ever: The Adidas adiZero Crazy Light

    Adidas already has the lightest footwear in football and soccer.  Now, they’re taking that same title for basketball, too, with the adiZero Crazy Light. How lightweight are the kicks?  Well, crazy light, as the name enthuses, tipping the scales at only 9.8 ounces — a 15% reduction over its closest competition.  Despite the feathery frame, it’s commissioned for performance, too, and will likely appear on the feet of some of your favorite NBA stars come this year’s playoff season. The [...]

    Sea Squirts Buoyancy Vest Doubles As Fish Costume

    Life vests specially when it comes to children are very important but no fun also.   And when something’s no fun to wear, your kid will likely take it off as soon as you turn your back.  Sea Squirts’ buoyancy vests are specially-designed to double as sea creature costumes, allowing kids to roleplay as Jaws, Nemo or this shark-like submersible while wearing them in the water. The vests come in two variants: a swim-assist vest and a life jacket.  The former [...]

    Punching Pro Is A Punching Dummy That Punches Back

    You know those punching dummies in the gym that you practice your crosses, hooks, jabs and straights on?  It’s such a sweet guy, letting you smack it around without a peep of complaint.  The Punching Pro is just like that, except it punches you back. Created by Kris Tressider, the boxing (or chess-boxing, if you’re into that) trainer is intended to make solo boxing practice just a tad more interesting.  Instead of just punching an inanimate opponent, it offers a [...]
