  • Zuumer Electric Scooter Leans, Looks Like One Fun Ride

    Zuumer Electric Scooter Leans, Looks Like One Fun Ride

    Personal mobility transporters have always been good in theory.  In practice, though, mass adoption for vehicles like the Segway just doesn’t seem to be in the cards.  Still, a future where we all travel in small, single-passenger pseudo-vehicles is an attractive one and that’s why we’ll keep seeing new variations pop up.  One of the more interesting ones we’ve seen is the Zuumer. Billed as “an innovative personal transport solution,” it actually seems like a variant of a motorized kick [...]

  • Don’t Be George Costanza – Get The Quick Draw Dash Wallet

    Don’t Be George Costanza – Get The Quick Draw Dash Wallet

    The Dash Wallet is the anti-George Costanza wallet. One of the funnier moments in television sitcom history is the Seinfeld episode where the lovable curmudgeon George Costanza becomes overly defensive about his super sized wallet. George stubbornly refuses to reduce the size of his wallet even though it is causing terrible backaches. His solution, instead, is to stick a wad of napkins in his other pocket to even himself out. The episode ends with George’s wallet exploding as he tries [...]

  • Bottle Grenade Multi Tool Looks Pretty Useful

    Bottle Grenade Multi Tool Looks Pretty Useful

    For all intents and purposes, the world doesn’t need another bottle opener multi-tool.  There, I said it.  With that out of the way, let me gush at just how much I want this Bottle Grenade. Why?  Because it looks awesome.  Then again, so do the half dozen or so multi-tools I have at home that can open bottles and twist bolts and stuff.    Still, you can’t have too many awesome-looking trinkets in your life, especially when you can’t afford ridiculously [...]

    We love the idea behind Threadlab.  Want to add a pocket to your banded collar dress shirt, but can’t sew if your life depended on it?  Just iron a chest pocket onto it.  How about a full collar because you think it makes you a little more presentable at work?

  • LG Hecto Laser TV Simplifies Using A Video Projector

    LG Hecto Laser TV Simplifies Using A Video Projector

    Video projectors aren’t the easiest entertainment systems to install.  In fact, it’s probably the overriding reason why people would rather invest their money in flat panel TVs than cinema-style projection systems.  The LG Hectro Laser TV, which is actually a video projector, might narrow that gap. While it’s not the first system to beam 100 inches of video to your walls, it’s remarkable for doing it without requiring a lot of space between the surface and the projector.  In fact, [...]

    Desktructure Modular Organizer Forms Into Boats, Cityscapes

    Some people just have a natural inclination for keeping their desks neat and tidy.  If that’s not you, then your work area is probably similar to mine — a  mess of random writing instruments, business cards, office supply crap, various stationery and little desktop toys.  It’s not pretty.  If you’re going to enact some organization into that pile of confusion, might as well make it as fun as these Desktructure Organizers. Designed by Hector Serrano, these are modular desk organizers [...]

    You’ve already painted over half your bedroom to turn it into a dry-erase board for your spur-of-the-moment ideas.  If you’d like to doodle some with chalk instead of ink (because you miss all those gross powder on the finger things you got so used to in elementary school), the Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint should do the trick.

    JustMount Is A Wall-Mounted Magnetic Organizer

    A mini-shelf up on the wall makes an ideal space for storing keys, phones and other things you regularly stuff into your pants pockets.  However, you like your home storage fixtures on the fancy side and a mini-shelf just doesn’t scream modern techie the way you want your accessories to.  The JustMount Magnetic Wall Organizer should make for a more appropriate replacement.

    C-Seed 201 Is A Giant TV For Your Backyard

    All rich people have fancy media rooms.  And since you’re rich, you naturally have one, too.  But since all the other rich homes in the neighborhood have the same thing, it doesn’t quite feel as special anymore.  And what’s the point of being filthy rich when you can’t feel special?  Well, throw some of that money on  the C-Seed 201 TV and you’ll probably feel a whole lot better. Created by C-Seed Entertainment Systems and Porsche Design Studio, it’s a [...]

    Aftershokz Headphones Leave Your Ears Open

    You’ve spent the last few years pumping loud music in your ear via bass-thumping headphones.  And your eardrums can look forward to even more years of abuse.  That is, unless you trade in your favorite pair of ear cans for AfterShokz headphones. Unlike your standard over-ear and in-ear listening gear, the new headphones don’t blare loud sounds into your soundholes.  Instead, they use bone conduction technology, sending vibrations directly instead of discernible audio.  As a result, your eardrums are spared [...]

  • Pi-to-Go Turns The Raspberry Pi Into A Mobile Computer

    Pi-to-Go Turns The Raspberry Pi Into A Mobile Computer

    Portable MIDs were a beautiful thing — an almost pocketable device running a full version of Windows that’s fully usable without a table in sight.  While smartphones and tablets have, pretty much, eaten up any market for them, they remain a viable form factor for mobile computing.  Those MIDs are exactly what the Pi-to-Go reminds me of. A custom build using the hacker-friendly Raspberry Pi, it turns the humble mini-computer into a functional portable rig.  Sure, it’s a bit too [...]

    Brain Cube Makes You Put A Squishy Brain Together

      Everybody always thinks they’re smarter than they really are.  And it can get grating when you’re around people who like to announce how smart they think they are.  For years, my solution has always been to pull out a Rubik’s Cube and tell them to solve it since they’re so smart.  Just in case they really can solve the darn thing, I’m thinking the Brain Cube will be my follow-up. Designed by American sculptor Jason Freeny, it’s, basically, a [...]
