DuetGen lets you power your life for free

If there’s one thing certain in life, it’s death, taxes and the increasing cost of electricity. Unless you’re lucky enough to be able to afford expensive solar panels (and live in a sunny climate) or you have access to hydro or geo-thermal power, you’re going to keep seeing power price rises for a long time yet.

Paq Chair is the only furniture you’ll need

Living in a small space means you have to choose wisely for the furniture you put in there. Your couch will likely end up being your bed, and any flat surface will be your kitchen prep area, writing surface, and the only stable point to put your laptop down. This is why having multi-functional items is more than a necessity. However, you need to make sure you’re picking the right items for several different jobs. Probably the most important piece…

Glow Stick Press On Nails

When you go to a party, you want to stick out more than the average Joe. While you can always wear a crazy outfit, nothing says “I’m here” like donning something that glows. You don’t exactly want to go full-on Lady Gaga, but a little extra something isn’t a bad thing.

Ubi is a hands-free computer for your home

We all thought that having Siri on our iPhones was absolutely amazing. Having voice control made our lives much easier as we didn’t have to rifle through contacts, or slowly type things into Safari. The thought of having voice control for your computer at home is likely a drool-worthy idea, and it’s actually already in existence.

Portable Body Scale keeps you in check

Watching your weight can be quite the battle. While you aren’t constantly stepping on a scale, you are likely tracking your progress weekly or every other day. However, you don’t want to have a giant scale looming in your bathroom, constantly taunting you for eating that bagel with two tubs of cream cheese instead of one.

ThumbSaver keeps your fingers free of injury

Many of you have likely tried hammering a nail into a wall. Just before you actually hit the nail on the head, there is a twinge of fear that you might actually strike yourself, just as they do in the cartoons. Rather than holding onto your red throbbing thumb to cure the pain as animated characters do, you would instead be making a quick trip to the hospital to get a cast for your finger.

Slobproof Paint Pen makes sure you stay inside the lines

Keeping a tidy home can be a bit difficult if you have children, are clumsy, have pets, or any other number of factors. Quite honestly, it’s hard to keep a tidy home even if you live alone. Your walls can get dinged up and scratched over time, but pulling out an entire can of paint and dirtying up a paintbrush seems a bit on the excessive side.

CB Radio Handset brings out your inner trucker

We all like to look to the past for inspiration. Whether it be the 1890’s, or the 1980’s, we like to surround ourselves with things that remind of of simpler times. Although they are still used today, CB radios seem to be a sort of retro device nowadays, but it’s difficult to find an actual use for keeping one at home.

BabyGlow is a thermometer you wear

If you have a baby, you know how difficult it can be to tell what they want. Whether they’re hungry, hot, or need to be changed, the only way they’ll let you know what’s up is to cry uncontrollably. Sadly we don’t have any crying translating devices floating about, so we’ll just have to enlist the help of science to fill in the gaps.

LeapPad2 is a tablet for tiny hands

It’s sometimes terrifying to hand over your several hundred dollar tablet to your little one. There’s a good chance that it will come back sticky, broken, or have a bunch of new apps for kids games all over the place. That being said, there are likely some times where you wish that there was a more kid-friendly tablet out there.

QuikChek makes checking air pressure super speedy

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not really “into” cars. So long as mine runs and I can get from point A to B, then we’re good. However, when it comes to checking air pressure in the tires, I don’t normally remember to look until it seems like the tire is almost as flat as a pancake. This is partly due to the fact that I can never seem to find a gauge when I need one.

Keep watch with the Micro Spycam Helicopter

So we’re here in the 21st century and we still don’t have flying cars yet. But on the positive side, we’ve got radio controlled helicopters. And what’s more, they’re now shipping with on-board video cameras. So that’s some consolation. But, we hear you ask, what good is a helicam?.

Cure for baldness in two years?

If there’s one thing that unites the male species, it’s the horror of going bald. Or worse, going bald before your time. What is it about thinning hair that provokes such primal emotions, and can even drive men to buy fake hair pieces? It’s all about age and virility of course, and that ever present lust for respect. And what would a world with no bald men be like anyway? Would it be more peaceful, less insecure?
