    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.

  • 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 [...]

  • 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 [...]

A miniature elliptical trainer, it slips right under your desk for use while sitting down.  Place your feet on the footpads then start kicking forward and back in a motion similar to a regular elliptical machine.   That’s it [...]

    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, [...]

    Hey Joe Coffee Mug: This Travel Mug Can Brew Its Own Coffee

    Most travel mugs do a great job of keeping your coffee at ideal temperatures. But that drink is still going to have to be brewed before you leave home — a process that can eat many precious minutes to your already hectic morning rituals. The Hey Joe Coffee Mug cuts off that requirement, letting you brew coffee right on the same mug you drink from while you drive through traffic on the way to the office. And, no, it won’t [...]

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

    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 [...]

    KLAX Multi-Tool Lets You Weaponize A Piece Of Stick Into A Deadly Axe

    Just like the gazillion of multi-tools out there, KLAX can be used as a hammer, a hex wrench, and a ruler, among other things. Unlike them, however, the darn thing can attach to the end of a handle and immediately turn into a deadly axe that lets you live out your lumberjack (or axe murderer, whichever the case may be) fantasies. When detached from its handle, the device is slim enough to be slipped into your jeans’ back pocket, allowing you to walk [...]

    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 [...]

    Strooder Lets You Make 3D Printing Filament At Home

    Buying a 3D printer doesn’t mean you can build every plastic toy you fancy for free. Instead, it means you can build every plastic toy you fancy provided you can manage to design it in CAD, as well as pay for all the 3D filaments you’ll need to produce the actual object. And filaments ain’t cheap. With test prints and misprints being a regular part of the game, it’s not improbable that you can burn through a hundred bucks’ worth of filament [...]

    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 [...]

    OutRunner Is A Legged Robot That Can Run At 20MPH On Any Terrain

    Granted, the OutRunner’s mobility system looks more like a modified pair of spoked wheels than legs. The unique design, however, allows it to “run” at impressive speeds, all while being able to stretch the battery to last for much longer than conventional RC cars. Described as the “first legged running robot that is commercially available to the public,” the automaton can run on practically any type of terrain, maintaining balance all on its own in the process. Grass, asphalt, dirt, [...]

Made by California-based Next Thing Co., the digital camera (which looks like a plastic analog camera, complete with an optical viewfinder) features [...]

    ANTVR Kit Brings Open-Source, Cross-Platform Virtual Reality To The Table

    As awesome as the promise of both the Oculus Rift and the Sony Morpheus are, both virtual reality systems are tied down to their respective platforms (PC and PS4, respectively). The ANTVR Kit goes a different way, offering an open-source system that can work across a wide variety of operating systems. Made by Beijing-based startup ANTVR Technologies, the kit is designed to work with PC, Xbox, PS4, iOS, and Android, as well as Blu-ray for enjoying your movies in a [...]

    iStick Is A Thumb Drive For iPhone And iPad

    One of the most annoying things about iOS devices is the lack of a facility for hooking up extra storage. Sometimes, using an SD card or a thumb drive is just way more efficient for transferring files than any of the commercial or private cloud solutions out there. The iStick is a thumb drive that can work with both computers (via USB) and iOS devices (via Lightning), finally creating a simple way to get files to and from Apple’s mobile gadgets without [...]
