CubeFit TerraMat hides under your standing desk to give your feet a rest

 Back before humans invented chairs we humans stood a lot. Now, almost 100 years later, we tend to sit. However, some people still stand. For those people there is the TerraMat. The TerraMat is like a cat toy for you feet. It features a number of little bumps and ridges designed to let you stretch, exercise, and massage your feed while you’re standing. It was created by two… Read More

Japanese Kendama game gets a digital upgrade and a Kickstarter campaign

 Like all good games, Kendama is easy-ish to learn and frustrating as all ever-loving £%&*@£^% to master. What’s a poor entrepreneur to do when a game hasn’t changed for 400 years? Rename it Dendama, add a boat-load of electronics, invent a slew of multiplayer games and launch a Kickstarter campaign, of course. Read More

This Kickstarter pen looks so good, I actually backed it

Kickstarter Review

I have a bit of a Kickstarter problem. I'll go on Kickstarter for a couple minutes, as per usual, to hunt for any interesting new projects to blog about. Somehow, fifteen minutes later, I'm $100 poorer and the potential future owner of an artisinal new knife, or a $400 camera bag I didn't know I needed.

This is all a long-winded way of saying that last night, I may or may not have spend $87 on a pen. This is out of character for me; I avoid writing things whenever humanly possible, and I'm also bad at losing small pocket items. This makes an expensive titanium pen a dangerous thing to own, because I probably won't use it as much as I think, and it will almost definitely be left behind on an airplane at some point.

Despite all that, I still had to back this project, because just look at it.

Any headphones can be Bluetooth headphones with Jack

img_7839-jpg When Apple decided to strip its flagship phones of the headphone jack, certain people were angry. Those relying on the headphone jack for non-music things were grumpy, but so were those of us who had recently dropped hundreds of dollars on new, high-end headphones. Jack — a Kickstarter campaign in its final hours — offers reprieve to both groups. Read More

This wall clock is a mesmerizing floating metal ball

cool clocks

If you're in the market for a wall clock — and, really, who doesn't need another clock or three — your choices are pretty much limitless. Timepieces come in all shapes and sizes, and very rarely will one make you actually raise an eyebrow. The Story clock by Flyte is one of the few that might catch your eye, and not because it's flashy, but exactly the opposite.

Stick this phone on the wall and control it with your eyes

zte hawkeye

What do smartphone buyers actually want out of their devices? Chinese electronics manufacturer ZTE wanted to find out, so they created Project CSX, which apparently stands for "Crowd Source X" — I guess the "X" will forever remain a mystery — and set out to design a device based entirely on votes from the general public. The result? A sticky phone that you can slap on the wall and then control hands-free using just your eyes. Wait... what?
