  • DipClip: A Dipping Sauce Holder for the Car

    DipClip: A Dipping Sauce Holder for the Car

    I often imagine what Jack the Dipper‘s car – which I have dubbed DIPP – is like. One essential component of this imaginary automobile would have to be a space for dipping sauce while popping McNuggets behind the wheel, a fantastical, impractical device for those of us who inhabit the real world. OR IS IT?? […]

  • Vortx: Feel the Elements from TV, Movies, and Video Games

    Vortx: Feel the Elements from TV, Movies, and Video Games

    4D effects: They aren’t exclusively the province of weird tourist attractions in towns like Gatlinburg or San Antonio anymore. Now, there’s Vortx, a gadget that you can hook up to your TV or computer in order to feel on-screen elements – like wind and fire – inside the comfort of your own home, which presumably […]

  • 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 […]

  • Firelight Flask: A Flask Built for Sharing

    Firelight Flask: A Flask Built for Sharing

    Containers designed for alcoholic beverages don’t get much more implicitly solitary than the traditional pocket flask – I mean, the stereotypical manner in which to drink from the flask is furtively, ideally without anyone even knowing you’re getting progressively drunker. The Firelight Flask is a variation on the traditional flask that has a much more […]

  • Mitte: “Create Your Own Mineral Water, Just Like Nature”

    Mitte: “Create Your Own Mineral Water, Just Like Nature”

    The tech world is still licking its wounds over that whole embarrassing Juicero debacle, when it turned out that you could save hundreds of dollars on “the world’s first home cold-press juicing machine” by simply squeezing the juice packs with your hands over a glass. So I have to give it up to the folks […]

    Qwest TV: A New Video Streaming Service for Jazz by Quincy Jones

    Producer and composer Quincy Jones has evidently wanted to start a TV channel dedicated to jazz and various other related forms of music for a while now. But he only recently got just such a project funded through Kickstarter: It’s called Qwest TV, and it’s now “coming to a screen near you” sometime in the […]

  • Cups Coffee: Coffee Pods Perfected

    Cups Coffee: Coffee Pods Perfected

    Keurig and other comparable single-serving coffee pod brands are mighty convenient, but they carry a host of inevitable downsides that go along with that convenience. From a coffee lover’s (and not an environmentalist’s) point of view, one of the biggest of those downsides is the fact that the coffee inside the K-Cups isn’t fresh – […]

  • Xcissor Pen: “One Mighty Scissors Hidden in Your Sleek Pen”

    Xcissor Pen: “One Mighty Scissors Hidden in Your Sleek Pen”

    There are plenty of multitool pens out there – this is one of them (hey, I’m not in advertising here). It’s the Xcissor Pen, which introduces a pair of scissors into the pen’s usual duties of drawing and writing in ink. It’s presented as a solution to an everyday dilemma – it’s normal enough to […]
