Dropshades – the LED accessory that parties as hard as you do

So way back in the earlier 2000’s, Kanye West wore those window blind glasses and we all danced like mad men to “Stronger”. It’s ok, you can admit it. Anyway, those shades were the worst. Dropshades look exactly the same, but the addition of lights have made them awesome. That’s progress for you, huh?

The dog days of summer are almost behind us but that doesn’t mean your dog is going to stop wanting to go outside. Sure the days are getting shorter and colder, the nights longer and, well, colder.

HB Lamp – huge pencil lamp is perfect for those huge bright ideas

When you go to gift shops there’s always those giant pencils you can buy. They’re ridiculous. When are you ever going to write with that and what happens when the lead runs down? It’s obvious they’ll just end up consuming a ton of space and so I never buy them (even though I secretly want to. Deep down). Now Michael and George have finally created a giant pencil I can actually use with the HB Lamp.

Skull USB Hub – the perfect hub for medical students and nurses?

Skulls are very useful things. Not only do they look good with candles and cats, but you can also learn what goes where in an anatomical sense. They also look awesome hodling up a face and do a pretty good job of protecting our brain-meats. Usually their use is limited to a) protection of brain and b) decoration for Halloween. This Skull USB Hub though helps you move data via USB, not neurons.

ScanMarker Pen Scanner – an end to tedious textbook note taking

School is coming back. For some it’s already started. Times have changed  however, and now you need more than a pencil and notebook to start the year. You still need a notebook but increasingly you have to add a computer to the mix. Which is strange because most text are still in paper form. The ScanMarker Pen Scanner helps you bridge the gap from the physical world to the digital one.

4-in-1 Adapter – a multi-colored plug for every occasion

People who don’t leave their home countries don’t know the struggle of outlets. If you’ve traveled than you understand the issues that surround going from one place to a drastically different place. Go to plug in your curling iron and nope, that’s not the right shape. I’m buying everyone I know the 4-in-1 Adapter. Not just because it’s a cool travel adapter, but because it also makes it very easy to know which plug works where.

The Fridge – keeping you posted on when your food is due to go post date

I don’t generally share paid apps, since you can usually find something to do the same job for free, but this one should actually help you save money by keeping you from throwing out your perishables before their time. Because, let’s face it, it’s really hard to remember that those avocados don’t last forever. The Fridge app keeps you updated on when your fresh foods are about to go bad on you.
