  • Foodini Will 3D Print Your Dinner

    Foodini Will 3D Print Your Dinner

    At first thought, the idea of a 3D printer for food is ludicrous.  I mean, how the heck are you going to produce a breakfast sandwich, baked potatoes, or smoked salmon out of extrusion nozzles?  Then again, there are plenty of food items that are processed into slurry form before being made into presentable meals, which, I’m guessing, are the kind of provisions you can make with the Foodini. Made by Florida-based Natural Machines, it’s a 3D printer designed to [...]

    Axe Pizza Cutter: Hack Your Pies Like A Lumberjack

    My wife once asked me about guys’ fascination with axes and swords.  I told her, “I don’t know what you’re talking about, guys aren’t into axes and swords THAT much.”  I then proceeded to pick up my Unbreakable Hatchet, my colorful Hickory Axe, and my Lion Dog Broadsword, and hid them away in the closet.   With that story out of the way, I’m probably going to have to get me one of these DCI Ax Pizza Cutters. Not because I’m [...]

    Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    We’ve seen a cupholder for bicycles before, but so far, I haven’t really found one that I can buy.  Hey, people who commute to work on bikes need to carry their morning coffee, too.  Maybe Bookman’s Cup Holder will finally be the one to bring bicycle riders that convenience. Designed to mount right on the bike, you simply attach it onto the handlebars using the integrated spring clamp with the cup area hanging out.  Again, make sure it’s hanging out, [...]

    BomBoard Is A Compact, Modular And Affordable Jet Ski

    Jet skis are awesome, but, darn it, they’re expensive as heck.  While there are some affordable options out there, we really haven’t seen one that’s as light on the bank account as the BomBoard. Described as “the world’s most affordable, high performance personal watercraft,” it’s slated to retail for under $3,495 — around half of what you’d expect to pay for most entry-level jet skis in the market.  It’s also smaller than your typical jet ski — a big factor [...]

    This Bear Simulator Lets You Spend Your Days As A Wild Grizzly

    Some people feel like they were born in the wrong generation.  You, on the other hand, feel like you were born in the wrong species.  In your heart, you know you were meant to live life as a bear.  And while dressing up as a grizzly and hanging out in the jungle is always an option, we have a feeling playing with the Bear Simulator is going to be a whole lot safer.

  • Futuristic Honda NM4 Motorcycle Features A Unique, Comfy-Looking Riding Position

    Futuristic Honda NM4 Motorcycle Features A Unique, Comfy-Looking Riding Position

    Sporting what Honda describes as a “neo-futuristic” design, the Honda NM4 is definitely one eye-catching motorcycle.   Not only does it bear styling that looks perfectly at home being ridden by a half-robot police officer from 2050, though, it could very well offer a more comfortable ride, too. With a seating position that Honda calls “cockpit-style,” it steers clear of the saddle-like seats you’ll find in everything from Ducatis to electric motorcycles, opting for a comfortable-looking wide seat.  That means, more [...]

    Coco Jack: Finally, An Easy Way To Open Coconuts Without Chopping Off Your Fingers

    From all the movies I have seen, people usually open coconuts using a large machete-like blade, hacking at the top of the shell like beheading an evil leprechaun.  It works well enough if you know what you’re doing.  If you don’t, well, good luck not losing a finger.  The Coco Jack is a kitchen tool that makes cracking coconuts open a less-hazardous undertaking. Designed for opening young Thai coconuts (you know, those things they sell at Whole Foods that raw [...]

    Electrical stimulation of the brain does great things for the treatment of migraines.  Unfortunately, doing it right has not been as simple as sticking a stun gun to your head, usually requiring medical equipment and professional attention.  That could change soon with the Cefaly, a consumer headband that lets you zap those migraines directly from the comfort of your home.

    Cliq Magnetic Hangers Trade In Hooks For Magnets

    We’ve said it once, we’ll say it again: everything is better with magnets.  Apparently, the same holds true even with the traditional clothes hanger and the Cliq, a hanger that trades in hooks for magnets, proves it. Made by Flow Design, the hangers feature a minimalist design that eliminates the bottom of the frame, so you can use it to hang suits and shirts, but not ties and towels like you do with your regular-shaped ManHangers.  Because it ditches the [...]
