  • OvRcharge Levitating Wireless Phone Charger

    OvRcharge Levitating Wireless Phone Charger

    Right off the bat, I should tell you that it’s a little bit of a misnomer to call OvRcharge a “levitating wireless phone charger,” since technically speaking it’s your phone that levitates, not the charger. Wait, what? My phone can levitate? This is great! OvRcharge, obnoxious capitalization notwithstanding, can levitate your phone without having to […]

  • Cyclotron: Futuristic Bike Inspired by ‘Tron’

    Cyclotron: Futuristic Bike Inspired by ‘Tron’

    “Cyclo lives!” These are the words said by Space Ghost‘s arch-enemy Cyclo, but they could also serve as a passable slogan for a new futuristic bike that was clearly inspired by another science-fiction masterpiece: Tron. It’s called the Cyclotron, and its sleek lightcycle-like look is in keeping with its futuristic functionality as well. That’s because […]

    The golden age of the boombox is far behind us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn something about its strengths and weaknesses in 2016. One fruit of those lessons is the BeatBringer, which combines the beat-bringing capabilities of a particularly high-end boombox with the more practical functionality of a backpack. The real emphasis of […]

    ChipmunkBags Premium Laundry Backpacks

    Schlepping your laundry from one place to another and back again – even if it’s just up and down the stairs of your apartment complex – can be a huge pain in the neck.

  • Bagel: “The World’s Smartest Tape Measure”

    Bagel: “The World’s Smartest Tape Measure”

    “Hey, will that new cabinet you bought be able to fit through the doorway?” “I think so, but give me a second and I can check, I just need to get my Bagel.” It may sound like nonsense, but it’s not – it’s “the world’s smartest tape measure” that just so happens to share a […]

  • Octospot: The “World’s Greatest Action Camera for Diving”

    Octospot: The “World’s Greatest Action Camera for Diving”

    GoPro has a certain brand dominance in the field of action cameras, so much so that any footage spontaneously captured from its specialized first-person perspective is often referred to as “GoPro” footage even if the camera itself isn’t a GoPro camera. The next time you see some cool underwater footage that looks like it was […]

It’s EcoFire, a stove that offers “powerful outdoor cooking” along with a portable […]

But it wasn’t just Armstrong & Aldrin that we shot up there, as a cool new poster by Rob Loukotka proves. The poster is simply […]

    Hunter S. Thompson Tribute Jacket From High-WaterMark Clothing

    Paying tribute to the late Hunter S. Thompson isn’t easy in this puritanical decade, when copious use of hallucinogens is frowned upon, particularly in an officious environment. But the Hunter S. Thompson Tribute Jacket from High-WaterMark Clothing can be worn in almost any office, at least on Casual Friday. The Hunter S. Thompson Tribute Jacket […]
