Transparent Playing Cards – not so perfect for poker night

When you think of playing a card game, there are some iconic figures that come to mind. The king, the queen, jack, joker, and the various artwork surrounding them that we all recognize and love. There are a bunch of different types of playing cards, and it doesn’t mean you’ll get any “better” by having a different kind of deck…or does it?

Solar Charged Umbrella will work while you play

While it’s nice to have warm weather after this long stint of cold, it can tend to get a little too hot too quickly. The best ways to cool off are to drink water and sit in the shade. If you’re going to just be sitting around anyway, why not charge up your devices while you relax?

Speaker Blanket will let you rock out in dreamland

We all have different methods of getting to sleep at night. Some use hot tea and reading to wind down, while others soothe their minds with some tunes. Whichever way you choose to do things, it’s always better with a nice, cozy blanket. Multi-functionality makes things easier, so why not combine two ways of relaxing into one?

Terrarium Table Lamp – light up your world

Ever need a dab of inspiration? We all tend to place things on our desk that put us in a swell mood, or helps our imagination open up a bit. One thing that we all seem to have in common as well, is that we run out of desk space because it’s easy to try and overdo it with inspirational material. If you want to keep your space tidy, but still have things that will get your brain juices going…

Lee Valley Story Tape measurements are only as accurate as you are

It’s always heart-warming to see an April Fools Day joke product become a real thing. Many retailers have become notorious for it, and sometimes they end up being functional items that people would actually purchase. It seems as though a tool has been created that removed the main function for its existence. You would think that it wouldn’t be of use anymore, right?

Gtech AirRam Vacuum sounds too good to be true

There is one chore that is both easy and simultaneously hard to do at the same time: vacuuming. You have to do it at a certain time of day to not rouse the neighbors (if you have any), you need to plan your route so you don’t run out of cord, and you also need to have a trash bag at the ready to empty out the dust without it flying everywhere. There’s also maintenance, and lugging it around everywhere…

Gunnar Crystalline Computer Glasses – do yourself a favor

There are days when your eyes just can’t seem to handle looking at a computer screen anymore. If you’re at work, you have to force yourself to look on, and all you end up getting is a headache. Our eyes are bombarded with so much of the cooler end of the light spectrum from fluorescent light that we just can’t take it all.

No need to fear, MiiPC is here!

It’s a bit strange to think of how different things are now compared to twenty years ago. Having to worry about what kids might look up on a computer was almost a non-existent problem. Now children often know how to navigate technology better than their parents do, which could be an issue. Not to mention there’s no good way to measure how much time they (or their parents) spend on it.

Lazerwood Keys for Macbook Pro will add an air of flare

Want to add a dash of natural beauty to your computer? There are always options like the bamboo mouse, but what if you don’t want to have to buy new peripherals? You could always plant a chia garden in the keys of your keyboard (we all know there are living things in there already), but there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to add some classy flare to what you already have that won’t get in the way.

SpotLit LED will shed some light on the situation

While the human body is a pretty remarkable and complex thing, it relies on its senses to react to its surroundings. If it’s dark out, you’d best believe it would be difficult to walk sufficiently, as you have no clue how close or far away things are because you can’t go off of visual depth perception.

Hoseless Evaporative Cooling Fan – Brace yourselves, summer is coming

It may be a long way off, but now is the time to start preparing yourself to handle the heat of summer. Enjoy the remaining cold while you can, for high temperatures are fast approaching. Having an air conditioner outside won’t do anyone any good, so you’ll have to resort to other methods (especially if you’re not fond of swimming). Misting fans are a good way to go, but you have to make sure that it isn’t one that will…
