The Victorinox Swisscard Lite Pocket Tool – a new look for an old favorite

The Swiss Army knife is the staple of any outdoor kid. I’m not exactly sure what the Swiss Army does, considering their multi-tool has always featured a corkscrew, bottle opener, and a nail file, but it seems like the kind of warfare I can get behind. In any case, if the classic Swiss style knife is too much for you, let’s introduce the Victorinox Swisscard Lite Pocket Tool.

Milktape – relive the glorious retro art style of mixtapes

Remember when mixtapes used to be that ‘special‘ gift? If you don’t, go take a look at John Cusack in the excellent High Fidelity movie. They could mean so many things. It could just be, “I think these songs are rad” or it could say, “I think you’re rad.” Too bad it’s a dying art. Or at least it was. Milktape is reviving the mixtape as a form of communication for lovers and friends alike.

AromaFork – hack your tastebuds with this weird and wonderful tool

So here’s a fascinating fact. Apparently we humans lose half of our taste receptors by the time we reach 20, and from then on it’s all downhill. Yikes. As if that wasn’t enough, our tastebuds can only recognize 5 primary tastes – sweet, sour, salty, bitter, and unami – and if you’re a non-taster, you’re probably not even going to be able to do that. So it’s fascinating to report on a new product which aims to help things along…

Over the years we’ve seen – and featured here – any number of fancy, 3D search engines, all of which we knew instantly would disappear from sight instantly. Why? Because search is about speed, not fancy 3D icons, thumbnails and other junk. All of which slow down the process. So it’s nice to report on a new search tool which goes completely the other way.

Boosted Board – forget pushing, just enjoy the ride with this ultra light electric skateboard

Skateboarding is pretty awesome, specially when you know how to ride that piece of wood properly. However it can be hard work getting from A to B if you’re not fit enough to deliver all the push you need to keep going. Especially up hill. Which is where electric boards come into play. But the problem is, most electric boards are really heavy to carry around and can weigh almost as much as a bicycle.
