Origami Power Folding Stroller – if Tesla made baby gear…

Anyone who has ever had to deal with a stroller knows they are the most cumbersome and boring of all baby necessities. Fold “flat” actually means flatish and will still take up ALL the room in your trunk, and the nearest thing to technology most of them contain is called a rain hood. The Origami Stroller doesn’t fold flat as paper, but it does manage to cram in a lot of tech and innovation into a very small package.

Radio Control Tarantula – aka how to avoid visitors on Halloween

The internet is currently in love with a goofy horror short of a giant spider [warning: not for very young eyes] that traps people in its web. Spoiler alert, it’s not a spider. Or even bad CGI.

The next best thing to an…

This always happens. I look at my phone and it’s at some ridiculously low battery level. Then I look at the clock and realize I don’t have time to charge it before I have to run off and do some highly important task.

Philips Wake-Up Light – start every day like it’s a Sunday

Isn’t it nice to wake up on Sunday morning? Sunlight flittering through your shades. Maybe a little bird song playing outside the window, and the little elves cleaning your ball gown. A nice gentle welcome to the day ahead. Unfortunately, most of us wake up to beeping, buzzing, or a song picked for its abrasive qualities. The Philips HF3500/60 Wake-Up Light is a better way to greet the day.
