  • The Dreamery: An NYC Nap Hotel from Casper

    The Dreamery: An NYC Nap Hotel from Casper

    Many are the long summer days on which I’ve been stranded downtown or some other hectic locale away from my bed and thought to myself, “there should be a place where you can pay to to take a nap.” Obviously I’m not alone, and now the mattress peddlers at Casper have come up with just […]

  • Hair Dust Dry Shampoo

    Hair Dust Dry Shampoo

    I’ve often wondered what would happen to my hair’s lustrous glow and finger-friendly curls if I was stranded out in the desert away from any source of water. Most shampoos require water to activate, and not imaginary mirage water either, but Hair Dust Dry Shampoo is pretty much what it sounds like, and doesn’t need any water […]

    Avya: A Battery-Powered Steam Inhaler

    Whether it’s flu season, cold season, allergy season, it’s easier to tally up the portions of the calendar that don’t result in nasal congestion for big swaths of the population. New on Kickstarter is a device to help keep the ol’ nasal passages clear and functional: Avya from Aura Medical. Avya is purported to be “the only truly effective […]

  • Be.: “The First Battery-Free, Powered Toothbrush”

    Be.: “The First Battery-Free, Powered Toothbrush”

    Electric toothbrushes are great for your oral health, not just the teeth but the gums as well. But let’s be honest, there are some downsides to the electric toothbrush life. First and foremost is the fact that you have to keep them charged up, either with fresh batteries or hooked up to the wall. That’s […]

  • Supreme Toothbrush Part of Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

    Supreme Toothbrush Part of Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

    I have no idea if this was part of a larger trend or just a regional thing, but when I was in high school one of the cool kids’ catchphrases was to shout across the hall or classroom “brush your teeth!” After developing a compulsive need to brush at least once an hour, I eventually […]

  • Duke Cannon Cold Shower Cooling Soap Cubes

    Duke Cannon Cold Shower Cooling Soap Cubes

    We’ve all heard the expression “take a cold shower,” but have you ever actually done it? It can be pleasurable in certain situations, particularly hot, humid days.  But it can also be uncomfortable and too much of a jolt for sensitive systems. If you want to experience a cold shower while keeping the water nice […]

  • Underhill Solid Cologne From Misc. Goods Company

    Underhill Solid Cologne From Misc. Goods Company

    Cologne: Generally a liquid. But the folks at Misc. Goods Company have taken that conventional wisdom and shoved it right into the trashcan along with yesterday’s and this morning’s garbage with Underhill Solid Cologne, a cologne with a consistency more akin to deodorant or any other soft solids you may care to name. The consistency […]

  • MOBOT: “The World’s First Foam Roller Water Bottle”

    MOBOT: “The World’s First Foam Roller Water Bottle”

    Water bottles are great for carrying water, and for drinking, but if for some reason you’ve ever tried to use one to massage your aching muscles, you know how inadequate they can be in that regard. Now, there’s MOBOT, a combination water bottle and foam roller massager that seeks to be an indispensable part of […]

  • ‘The American Ninja Warrior Workout’ From Cool Material

    ‘The American Ninja Warrior Workout’ From Cool Material

    I was at a bar a couple weeks ago and that show American Ninja Warrior was on one of the TVs. For some reason, I couldn’t look away, maybe because I was a big fan of shows like GUTS and American Gladiators as a kid, or maybe it was just the intangible power of the […]

  • Sebastian Bergne Ring Soap

    Sebastian Bergne Ring Soap

    The agreed-upon shape for soap is the classic bar. It’s worked for generations, but the people at Sebastian Bergne have done what they do and come up with another, possibly better shape for soap. It’s Sebastian Bergne Ring Soap, the advantages of which should be obvious. Sebastian Bergne Ring Soap hangs on an included aluminum […]
