Remote Control Light Buddy just looks inconvenient

How many times have you been watching TV in the dark, and needed to use the remote to change the channel? It seems like something fairly common, right? Well when you grab your remote, do you have trouble finding the right button? On many remotes, the volume and channel buttons feel exactly the same, which can be slightly annoying. What’s worse is when you need to push one of the other buttons, which are all the same. Well now you…

The Umbrella Messenger Bag gives you a hand

Whenever we see rain on the forecast, we make sure to grab our umbrellas before running out the door.

The Umbrella Messenger Bag is the perfect way to keep you and your valuables safe in a custom bag of holding. This is perfect for anyone on his or her…

Golf balls made from lobster shells?

Maine is known for its lobster. Now there’s a new twist. Students from the University of Maine have created what is perhaps the world’s first biodegradable golf ball from – wait for it it – lobster! Or rather from lobster shells. Creative minds have been coming up with a number of uses for what has normally a troublesome waste product.

EarPlanes Earplugs alleviate the ear pain caused by flying

When you take off in a plane, you’ll notice right away that your ears will start to pop. This is because your body is attempting to equalize the air pressure in your head with the changing air pressure in the cabin. Have you ever taken off (or landed) and not had your ears pop? This is one of the worst feelings to have, especially if you have to wait three hours to catch your next flight (at which time, you’ll…

Get a boost with BioFuel Caffeinated Popcorn

It seems that most people have an addiction of some sort. Be it something major like drugs, or something smaller like video games or cigarettes, almost all of us have one. Mine would probably be caffeine. I have a mini fridge in my office stocked with Mountain Dew at all times. I’ve never liked coffee, so I drink soda for my fix. However, it seems that I could also just eat some popcorn. BioFuel Caffeinated Popcorn is exactly what you…

Cool Leaf Touchscreen Keyboard features no physical keys

If you’ve ever watched Star Trek, you’ve no doubt noticed that their keyboards and such are all flat surfaces. This helps give it the futuristic look that we have come to appreciate over the years. With tablets, we can simulate that same look, for certain applications. However, if you’re looking for an actual keyboard like this, you’ve only got one option: the Cool Leaf keyboard. This special keyboard uses a capacitative touch panel in lieu of physical keys. This is…

Make a set of reflector flaps to keep you visible when biking at night

When riding a bike, the only thing more important than obeying the traffic laws is making sure that you can be seen by drivers. This last bit is especially vital during the evening and night, when a bicycle can be easily missed by a motorist. The two best ways to make yourself stand out are to put lights on the front and back of your bike, and have plenty of reflectors. If you want to wear some extra reflectors on…

Connect two iOS devices with this one duaLink cable

I tend to do a bit of traveling, for various reasons. As such, I’ve learned to pack as lightly as possible. The trick is taking just enough stuff to take care of your needs, and leaving all of the excess fluff at home. My travel buddy and I both have iPhones, which means that we each need to bring a cable if we want to charge them at night. That might not be the case any longer, thanks to this…
