  • ATILIUM Power Bank Looks Like Old-School Pager

    ATILIUM Power Bank Looks Like Old-School Pager

    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 […]

  • Levitating CUP: It’s a Cup That Levitates

    Levitating CUP: It’s a Cup That Levitates

    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. Yes, the Levitating […]

  • eon Turns Any Skateboard Electric

    eon Turns Any Skateboard Electric

    About eight months ago we told you about the Mellow Skateboard Drive, which can be attached to any standard deck to turn it into an electric one. Now there’s another similar product on the market.  It’s eon, which is billed by its makers at UNLIMITED as “the first modular electric powertrain for light vehicles” thanks to […]

  • 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 […]

    Lowline Underground Park: Plans for Underground Park in NYC Approved

    One of 2012’s most exciting Kickstarter projects has now reached the next stage of becoming a reality, as plans for the Lowline Underground Park in New York City have been officially approved. The first underground park in the world will be located under the Lower East Side section of the city—one can imagine it being […]

  • BeatBringer Portable Speaker Backpack

    BeatBringer Portable Speaker Backpack

    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

    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. But there’s a new brand that’s focused on “ending the laundry transportation struggle, once and for all” – it’s called ChipmunkBags. […]

  • 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 […]
