You’ll Find this Longboard a-Muze-ing

Riding a longboard from place to place is some people’s preferred mode of travel, because it’s so relaxing in many ways - being out in the fresh air, seeing the sights as you glide along, and connecting with the surfaces of your environment, to name a few. In pondering this, designer So-Hee-Woo thought that there could(…)

Coil Up with the Perfect Cup of Iced Coffee

Coil Up with the Perfect Cup of Iced Coffee

Those of us who have tried to make iced coffee by simply putting ice in regular brewed coffee know that the result is less than satisfying – saddening, even. Watered down, with loss of taste, and barely achieving room temperature, it just isn’t the same as what you buy at the coffee shop. But most(…)

Not only do these jobs or adventures tend to start at the crack of dawn, but you need(…)

This Coffee Mug will Get Your Goat

Which is why we tend to carry our coffee mugs with us, creating a never-ending dilemma of attempting to juggle a cup in one hand and our bags, books, papers, or phone in the other hand. Merely opening a(…)

Portable Charger Pod

One would think that with the near extinction of corded personal phones, we would finally be rid of corded phone chargers; but not quite yet. This is why we are all greatly appreciative of wireless charger options, including the new “ORA” charger by Albert Shane. Expounding upon the idea that with our mobile lifestyle we(…)

Wearable Charger that Doesn’t Skimp on Style

Who knew wearable tech could be so incredibly fashionable? In a continuation of the ever-growing area of wearable technology, the designers at on-the-rise tech company Nifty have brought us the “XOO Belt”.

Out of Thin Air – Creating Drinking Water with Fontus

Building upon methods used by Asian and Central American cultures for over 2000 years, the “Fontus” water bottle self-fills by creating water out of air. Sound like a miracle? It’s actually just science! Because our atmosphere contains over 13.000 km3 of unused fresh water, Fontus can use the air humidity to separate water and air(…)

Winos can Chill Out with Icecap

Even the least experienced wine connoisseur knows the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature; and many of us know that the desperate act of tossing ice cubes into wine to chill it, rather than waiting for it to chill, results in loss of taste and quality. But no more! Thanks to the “Icecap”(…)

Food & Fun in the Sun

Picnics and making meals on outdoor trips can be fun, but let’s be honest – it’s a lot of work to prepare. Also, if you do want to cook outside, chances are that the cooking source (such as a gas grill or camping stove) can be very bad for the environment, tough to use, and(…)
