    AER: Throw Your GoPro Like a Football

    If you’re a GoPro user, it may have occurred to you that you could possibly get some pretty memorable footage by just chucking your camera through the air.

    Mechanical pencils are considered a basic upgrade over the standard pencil by many, but they can still break down over time, particularly when they’re made out of cheap plastic as they so often are.

    Dango Tactical Wallet: “Redefining the Wallet”

    Generally if you want to win a fight with a wallet, the process simply involves taking all your cash and credit cards out, handing them over to your assailant, and hoping for the best.

  • Fidget Cube: A Desktop Toy to Improve Focus

    Fidget Cube: A Desktop Toy to Improve Focus

    Fidgeting is an unavoidable habit for some of us, which raises the question not of whether or not to fidget, but rather what we’re going to fidget with.  Pens, balled up pieces of paper, and anything else that might be at hand are usually fair game, but the Fidget Cube is a desktop toy specifically for […]

    There aren’t too many downsides to the extinction of the pager. Cell phones are unarguably more convenient and offer many more functions than a pager ever could, but there’s one thing they lack: The aesthetic value of a pager. ATILIUM is a way to recapture that value, since it’s a portable power bank that looks just […]

    I’ve said it before, and I will more than likely say it again: Levitation is so hot right now. Just the other day I told you about the levitating phone charger that’s not actually a levitating phone charger, but the Levitating CUP now raising funds on Kickstarter suffers from no such misnomers.
