    These Bandbox Bike Helmets Come Disguised As Stylish Hats

    Wearing a bike helmet can help keep you safe during everyday commute.  If you prefer accessorizing with a hat than a sporty vented helmet, though, you might want to look at Bandbox and their ever-growing collection of bike helmets. Designed to encourage cyclists to wear their helmets more frequently, the protective headgear is cleverly hidden underneath a selection of traditional hats.  Want to wear a wood felt fedora?  They got one.  How about a cowboy hat?  Yee-haw, they got that, [...]

    Napwrap Helps You Maintain Good Posture While Napping On A Seat

    We’ve seen plenty of products designed to keep people comfortable while they catch a nap during trips, with solutions that range from strapping the person to their chair to supporting their heads with a goofy-looking brace.  The Napwrap is a new offering that keeps thing a lot simpler, using a single strap whose sole purpose is to support the user’s arms. Why the arms?  Apparently, the position of the arms has a significant bearing on a person’s ability to take [...]

  • Smash Coffee Cup Can Collapse Into A Flat Pile That Fits In Your Pocket

    Smash Coffee Cup Can Collapse Into A Flat Pile That Fits In Your Pocket

    Travel mugs are great, letting you enjoy a hot cup of coffee from home while you go about your business on the road.  It’s convenient.  Only problem is, when you’re done drinking that coffee, you’re still stuck having to carry the same mug throughout the rest of the day.  And that’s not convenient.  The Smash Cup solves this problem with a collapsible design that lets you slip it in your pocket once you’re finished with the drink. While you can, [...]

  • Field Synthetic Grass Hammock Is Mostly Maintenance Free

    Field Synthetic Grass Hammock Is Mostly Maintenance Free

    The Field Hammock is what would happen if you sliced a rectangular bed of grass from the ground and hung both of its ends on a tree.  You can lie down on it and swing suspended from the ground like a regular hanging bed, rocking gently left and right as you lull yourself into rest.  If we lived in a cartoon world where the laws of physics worked in hilarious ways, that is. Since we don’t, it’s just a clever [...]

  • How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    At first glance, the Abyss Table looks like a fancy aquarium coffee table.  Like someone took a large rock and turned it into a tank where fish can swim around.  But it isn’t.  In fact, there’s not even any water on the darn thing. And there aren’t any rocks either. Instead, it employs a carefully-layered series of wood and glass that creates an illusory effect of a body of water entrenched on a large boulder’s body.  It’s a mesmerizing sight, [...]

    This Coffee Table Wrap Makes Any Box Look Like A Miniature Shipping Container

    Using random boxes as a makeshift coffee table around the house isn’t new.  If you’d rather dress it up a bit to bring an industrial furniture aesthetic to the digs, this Intermodal Coffee Table Wrap looks just like the thing to pull it off. Do note: you’re not getting an actual table done up to look like a compact shipping container.  Instead, it’s an adhesive wrap that you slap onto the walls of any box to turn it into one. [...]

  • Leather Bat Bow Tie Or A Hair Accessory, It’s Cool Either Way

    Leather Bat Bow Tie Or A Hair Accessory, It’s Cool Either Way

    Granted, these Bat Bows were intended to be worn as a hair accessory for women.  But they look so perfect as a Batman-inspired bow tie that we can’t help but imagine putting it on to adorn a formal tux, too.  Like you’re Bruce Wayne dropping subtle hints about your secret identity. We don’t know that many ladies who will actually be caught dead accessorizing in Batman merchandise, but for those that will, these look glorious.  It’s, like, instant-Batgirl without the [...]

  • Moment Wraparound Smartwatch Is So Pretty Even Fashionistas Might Like It

    Moment Wraparound Smartwatch Is So Pretty Even Fashionistas Might Like It

    When you look at it, the Moment looks more like a clasp than a smartwatch.  And that’s a good thing.  While it looks just as geeky as the geekiest smartwatch out there when it lights up (seriously, it looks like a shackle from a space soldier of some sort), it really does blend in really well with both male and female outfits the rest of the time. Rather than put all the electronics on a watch case and hook on [...]

    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 [...]

    NomadClip: This Carabiner Doubles As A Charging Cable

    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, [...]

  • Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Sure, you can hang a couple of Nerf Hoops on the wall to bring a little shootout action to your home.  We doubt they’d look anywhere as impressive as the freestanding rings you can set up using these Lazy Basketball Chairs, though. Designed by Emanuele Magine for Campeggi, it’s, basically, a basketball version of the Lazy Football Chair the same partnership created a couple years ago.  Instead of a net, however, it gets what looks to be a regulation-size basketball [...]

    Earin Are The World’s Tiniest Wireless Earbuds

    Want to listen to music during a meeting but don’t want anyone to know you’re not paying attention?  When you get your own pair of Earin, that won’t be a problem. Billed as the smallest wireless earbuds in the market, the thing nearly disappears when plugged in your ear canal, making it completely inconspicuous to wear.  Seriously, unless someone stares at your ear for an extended period, we doubt anyone will notice.  Heck, even if someone stares at your ear, [...]

    TIK Just Might Be The Most Compact Way To Carry Your Keys

    Described as “the world thinnest and lightest keychain,” TIK isn’t just a clever way to bundle keys like the Orbitkey. Instead, it changes the way keys should look like, which makes for a less simple but considerably more streamlined solution. Instead of a regular key with a head, TIK uses keys with the head totally removed, allowing it to be dramatically smaller than regular keys by default. It still functions like a regular key (you insert it in the door and [...]

    Modos Uses Aluminum Connectors For Quick And Tool-Free Furniture Construction

    We’re big fans of products like the Floyd Legs, which lets you turn any slab of wood into a functional table. The Modos is a similar system that uses a series of connectors to turn erstwhile ordinary wooden boards into a variety of home furniture pieces. Described as a “modular furniture system,” it doesn’t require specially-cut wood that slot into each other like giant LEGOs, the way other modular home furniture systems do. Instead, the connectors allow regular plywood boards to [...]

    StorkStand: This Portable Tray Can Convert Office Chairs Into Standing Tables

    Why buy a standing desk when you can turn any office chair into one? That’s exactly the argument to be made for the StorkStand, a portable tray that you can attach to the back rest of office chairs to turn them into functional standing workstations. Forget buying an expensive standing desk, just wind the included strap onto the back rest of your office chair, fold out the leg at the bottom, and secure it in the assembly. That’s it. Because [...]

    Soon, You Can Customize Adidas Sneakers With Your Instagram Photos

    Adidas is releasing an upcoming service that will let you wrap a new pair of sneakers in an Instagram print. Yes, those colorfully-filtered photos of your cats, lunch time meals, and sexy selfies can now adorn your feet. What could go wrong? This isn’t the first time a company allowed customizations on their sneakers. Heck, it’s not even the first one with an Instagram tie-in (Nike does it with PhotoID). However, this is going to be the first instance that [...]
