    Gramofon Is A Router That Doubles As A Music Streaming Device

    If you’re not familiar with Fon, it’s a company whose core business is operating a large system of crowdsourced, dual-access WiFi networks, which has grown to an impressive 13 million hotspots across Europe and North America. With that many hotspots at their disposal, the next logical step should be to create products that take advantage of them and that’s exactly what the company is doing with the Gramofon.

  • This Simple-Looking Artifox Desk Is Perfectly Equipped For The Modern Workspace

    This Simple-Looking Artifox Desk Is Perfectly Equipped For The Modern Workspace

    We’re loving the set up of this Artifox Desk, which comes equipped with a whole load of facilities that should serve modern office workers well. No, it doesn’t have a donut maker, Nerf blaster, or espresso maker built-in (sorry), but we bet you’ll find its roster of provisions useful all the same. Sporting minimalist looks, it appears like a simple tabletop on four legs at first glance. Inspect closely, though, and you’ll begin to appreciate what lies behind its unassuming looks. Look at the [...]

    Disco Hammock Brings Retro Party Aesthetic To Your Camping Gear

    Ever hit a club and thought to yourself, “This place needs a hammock.”  Well, it makes perfect sense. You get too tired from dancing, you take a breather in that hanging sack over there. Same when you get a little too drunk, too stoned, or too sad after being rejected by the fifth girl you tried grinding on in the dance floor — a hammock just sounds like the perfect place to relax and reboot your senses.

  • Pit Barrel Cooker Smokes And Grills Your Food Unattended

    Pit Barrel Cooker Smokes And Grills Your Food Unattended

    Aside from transporting hazardous chemicals and holding a fire in the park during a cold night, steel barrels are, apparently, also great for turning into a smoker. Seriously. At least, that’s what we gather from the Pit Barrel Cooker, a backyard cooking rig that boasts a “unique vertical cooking experience.” Far from the most stylish outdoor cooker we’ve ever seen, it’s built around a 30-gallon steel drum that’s combined with a grill grate, a charcoal basket, eight stainless steel hooks, [...]

    TinkerBots: This is The Modular Toy Robot You’ve Been Waiting For

    Modular, snap-on electronics might very well become the choice educational toys of this generation, enabling STEM learning without the complexities associated with traditional avenues of training. As big fans as we are of products like littleBits, though, we have a feeling that TinkerBots will have a better shot at keeping children’s attention. Described as a “perfect hands-on introduction to the world of robotics,” it lets children build functional robots of varying complexities. Whether for 5-year old kids fashioning their first automaton [...]

    Ficks Fortifier Is A Hangover-Minimizing Cocktail Garnish

    Alcohol is fun.  That’s why we drink it.  Lots of it, in fact. And we willingly live through the consequences of drinking too much, from carrying cab driver napkins to throwing up at work to waking up in Canada with no idea how we got there.  But what if you can imbibe the same amount of hooch while minimizing the less-than-desirable effects?  That’s exactly what Ficks Cocktail Fortifier claims to bring to your mixology kit. An all-natural cocktail fortifier, it [...]

    UCO Grilliput Duo Is An Actual Grill That Fits Inside A 13-Inch Tube

    There’s no shortage of portable grills in the market. In fact, we’ve featured a bunch here, such as City Boy Picnic Grill, Fold Flat Grill, and Fuego Element Portable.  So far, though, we haven’t seen anything that can pack as small as the UCO Grilliput Duo, which crams an entire barbecue rig inside a single tube. Measuring just 11.4 inches long and 0.9 inches in diameter when packed for transport, there’s literally no way you can’t find space for it [...]

    Wilson Smart Basketball Lets You Build A Shot Chart Of Your Game

    We’ve seen efforts to build a consumer-grade basketball that tracks on-court performance before.  If you want something like this to go mainstream, though, you’ll need a big name who can produce basketballs with onboard monitoring tech at scale.  And it looks like that’s what we’re getting with the Wilson Smart Basketball. A collaboration between the sports equipment manufacturer and Finnish AI company SportIQ, the ball comes with integrated electronics that can track your location on court, as well as whether [...]

    Remember when you laughed at the Paleo Diet, then changed your mind once you realized it was the perfect excuse to eat two dozen slices of bacon, half a dozen pork sausages, and eight sunnyside eggs every morning?  Yeah, that diet is awesome.  But if you’re going to eat breakfast like a troglodyte, might as well drink your coffee like one, too, and the Caveman Mug is exactly the drinkware to embrace your neanderthal lifestyle with.

    M3D Micro Is A $299 3D Printer

    Chances are, we won’t see mass adoption of desktop 3D printers for a long while.  Not only will the price need to go down severely, we’ll likely need a massive public library of downloadable 3D designs to spare folks from having to learn 3D modeling from the ground up.  The M3D Micro is a step towards that direction. With prices starting at $299, it takes consumer 3D printers to a new level of accessibility, making price a less-daunting obstacle than [...]

      Today’s crop of set-top boxes do a great job of bringing internet video to people’s living rooms, but requires you to make separate arrangements for traditional pay TV.  In fact, many folks don’t even bother with the latter, depending strictly on online sources like Netflix to get their TV entertainment.  But if someone made a box that allowed both internet video and pay TV to co-exist, would you still watch TV the old way?  That’s exactly what WebTuner is [...]

    StandDesk Brings Affordability To Motorized Standing Desks With A Starting Price Of $399

    Standing desks are great.  However, standing on your feet all day just sounds cumbersome.  So, someone invented a height-adjustable version.  However, having to manually change heights multiple times throughout the day just feels cumbersome, as well.  So, someone made a motorized height-adjustable table.  And it’s not cumbersome, at all.  However, they’re expensive, costing north of $1,000, making it a difficult proposition for people looking to outfit their office on a budget.  Well, that could change soon with the StandDesk.
