    Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod: So, This Is What A Luxury Jet Ski Looks Like

    The Strand Craft V8 Wet Rod is a luxury personal watercraft.  You know, like a Rolls Royce of jet skis.  Like the car, it lets you show off ostentatious wealth without having to say a word.  Which is why it’s a little disappointing the thing can’t be driven by a chauffeur. Designed to look more elegant than sporty, the watercraft will definitely make an imposing presence in any beach, setting itself apart from all the sporty Yamahas and Skii-doos riding [...]

  • Bounce Below Lets You Play On Giant Trampolines Inside An Abandoned Cave

    Bounce Below Lets You Play On Giant Trampolines Inside An Abandoned Cave

    Exploring caves?  Lots of fun.  Bouncing on trampolines?  Even more fun.  While we don’t know if combining them doubles the fun, that’s exactly what they did with Bounce Below, the newest attraction at UK’s Zip World Titan theme park. Described as “the first subterranean playground of its kind,” it consists of a series of giant trampolines that stretch across the expanse of an underground cave.  Like regular trampolines, you can bounce around over and over until you’re dizzy.  Except you [...]

    These Tables From Greg Klassen’s River Collection Look Like Intricate Topographic Maps

    We don’t know whether to classify the tables from Greg Klassen’s River Collection as furniture or sculptures.  On the one hand, they’re functional tables you can use for a variety of functions around the house.  On the other, they’re so beautifully crafted that your heart will probably break if you spill spaghetti sauce all over it or accidentally scratch the glass portion while moving the home theater equipment you set up on the tabletop.  Ouch. The idea is simple: Greg [...]

  • Tool Pen Screwdriver Changes Bits Like Pop-A-Point Pencils From Elementary School

    Tool Pen Screwdriver Changes Bits Like Pop-A-Point Pencils From Elementary School

    Somehow, I never saw the design of pop-a-point pencils (you should remember them from grade school) ever being used to make a screwdriver with interchangeable bits.  But someone did.  And it works so much better than I ever would have expected.  Called the Tool Pen, it’s the portable, multi-bit screwdriver you’ll actually want to carry around. Made by Taiwan-based Mininch, the tool is, literally, a pop-a-point screwdriver.  Just like the pencil counterpart, it comes with multiple bits stacked inside the [...]

    Consolatio Car Bed: Finally A Car-Themed Bed For The Master Bedroom

    Beds that look like cool race cars have been a popular furniture choice for a lot of little boys’ bedrooms.  A bed like that on a grown man’s bedroom, however, will likely drive away girls faster than a bring-your-own-computer Quake Convention.  Despite that, we have a feeling the Consolatio Car Bed can transcend such typical results. Why?  Because it doesn’t look like your typical car bed.  There are no bright colors, large graphics, or a bed frame that looks like [...]

    Refuel Lets You Know How Much Propane You Have Left In The Tank

    Propane tanks have needed a gauge to inform users how much gas is left in the tank since forever.  And since no one appears to be doing anything about it any time soon, someone made Refuel, a third-party device that lets you check your tank’s gas levels at any time. Another product of the growing partnership between Quirky and GE, the device consists of a plastic and rubber scale that you place under the tank, which is tethered to a [...]

    2015 Toyota FCV Production Hydrogen Car Is Real And You Can Actually Buy It Next Year

    We can’t fault you if you’re among the many who thought hydrogen cars are dead in the water.  Hey, I thought the same.  Turns out we were wrong.  So wrong, in fact, that possibly the highest-profile production fuel cell vehicle, the Toyota FCV, is hitting showrooms worldwide beginning next year. First seen as a concept at last year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the production Toyota FCV doesn’t depart too far from the original.  Most of the differences (mainly the side mirrors, [...]

    Core I7-5960X: Intel’s 8-Core Desktop CPU Is Here

    While we don’t exactly get giddy with new, powerful desktop processors the same way people would back in 1999, Intel’s first 8-core desktop CPU, the Core I7-5960X, does deserve a little excitement thrown its way.  That’s not four, not six, but eight cores of brute processing power right there – diehard PC overclockers, your new toy has arrived. Not only does the high-end Haswell-E processor pack an 8-core processor, it also boasts four more threads (yep, 16 threads) than the [...]

    This is the BugJuggler.  It’s a robot.  That juggles cars.  It’s awesome. Towering a huge 70 feet, the gigantic automaton will take 1,800-pound Volkswagen Beetles in its hands and hurl them up the air in alternating fashion.  It will use hydraulic accumulators for rapid movement, allowing it to juggle up to three cars simultaneously.  Like many robots, it’s going to do that to bring mankind some momentary amusement.  Until the time they revolt and use all those abilities to crush [...]

    This 55×44-Inch Matador Pocket Blanket Can Fold Smaller Than Your Wallet

    Most picnic blankets are, generally, compact enough, able to fold into a neat bundle that you can easily slip into a bag.  But why not make them fold even smaller?  That’s exactly what they did with the Matador Pocket Blanket, a functional picnic blanket you can slip into your front jeans pocket. We’re not entirely sure how it’s able to fold so small.  I’ve used blankets that’s rated to sit four people before (two, if you’re laying down on the [...]

    This Google Cardboard VR Toolkit Lets You Experience Virtual Reality For Cheap

    Sure, it’s not likely to provide anywhere near the sophisticated immersion experience of virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and ANTVR, but the Google Cardboard VR Toolkit sure makes serviceable VR perfectly convenient.  And, you never know, it might end up being awesome, too. Basically, Google made a software SDK called VR Toolkit, which lets you write virtual reality apps for Android smartphones.  It’s experimental, at best, so don’t expect the same level of support as core Android SDKs, [...]

    Ariel Ace Can Be Cruiser, Naked Bike, Sports Bike Or Any Other Bike You Want

    Fifty years after they produced their last motorcycle, the innovative minds behind the Ariel Atom are back with a new two-wheeled road-raging behemoth.  And it’s unlike any other.  Called the Ariel Ace, it is, quite possibly, the most customizable motorcycle in the world. Out of all the bike parts, the only things that aren’t customizable are the engine, the Ducati-ish machined aluminum frame, and the transmission.  Everything else, from the fork to the seat to the exhaust system to the [...]

    From bracelets to cards to Swiss army knives, there’s no shortage of alternatives to charging cables that offer better portability.  A new one called NomadClip has to be one of my favorites, taking the form of an erstwhile carabiner. Designed to eliminate the mess of wires while making it difficult to lose, the accessory can clip to anything a regular carabiner would.  Like your keychain.  Or a zipper on your backpack.   Or in one of your belt loops.  Once clipped, [...]

    Soundhawk Smart Listening System Adds Superhearing Tech to Bluetooth Headphones

    At first glance, the Soundhawk looks nothing more than a regular Bluetooth earpiece for conducting hands-free calls.  And while it does that, it brings something else to the table, having been designed to give its wearer superhuman hearing abilities.   Well, sort of. While it can’t exactly bestow you with Kryptonian levels of superhearing powers, it will amplify the things you want to hear and quiet down those you don’t, allowing you to better sort out what the girl you just [...]

Yeah, it’s geeky.  With its boxy case (37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm), silicone strap, and dead simple design, it’s what the guys who [...]
