When A 6-Pack Of Beer Isn’t Enough, There’s A 99-Pack

99-pack-of-beer

We’re not sure why you wouldn’t just buy a darn keg of beer, but if you absolutely must get your malted beverages in a cardboard box, you should know that an Austin brewery has you covered. Austin Beerworks is selling a 99-pack of beer called the Peacemaker, and it’s going for $99. Our math skills put that at $1 a beer, which isn’t too shabby a price. The monstrosity weighs 82 lbs., is 7 feet long and presents logistical nightmares that are of little significance to people who are just looking to get hammered, we suppose. It won’t fit in your fridge for instance. And you won’t be able to carry it alone, for another instance. But hey, it’s a 99-pack of beer, and how often do you come across that? Check out their website, instagram and other social media to find out how to get your own.

Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike Collapses, Uses Direct Drive System

bygen-8

The final size limitation that folding bikes often encounter is the chain; you can fold the bike, sure, but you can’t do the same to the chain. Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike simply ditches the chain and switches it for a direct-drive system. This means the pedals are directly powering the rear wheel, much like a Penny-farthing’s pedals power the front wheel directly. But unlike a Penny-farthing, the Hank isn’t a fixie: it has a hub transmission with three available gear ratios. The pedals extend forward and are placed at a natural angle beneath the rider, while the entire bike doesn’t actually fold but rather telescope back into itself. The top post is completely adjustable, so even when you take it out of the retracted position, you don’t have to slide it all the way forward, allowing you to lock it in place at the most comfortable distance.

The lack of chain makes this bike ideal for the business commuter since you won’t be getting any grease on your pants, and its small retracted size lets you keep it somewhere in the office without too much trouble. Price and availability haven’t been announced, however.

Soba Cable Organizer Cleans Up That Mess Behind Your Monitor

Bluelounge_Soba_Cable_Organizer

Most of us choose to entirely ignore the area behind our monitors, just because we’re too lazy to deal with the spaghetti clutter of cables. If the putting-your-head-in-the-sand technique is running thin, you could try to give the Soba cable organizer from Bluelounge. Just slip them all into the “Vortex tube”and place them where you want it. The kit comes with 3 mounting caps, which can be affixed to any surface and help route the tube in your desired path. There’s even a Y-split, in case some of your cables have completely different destinations. For $25, it’s a cheap and efficient way to today up your living space.

Scribble Pen: So Is It Too Good to Be True?

Scribble Pen Video Inconsistency

Scribble took the internet by storm when it was announced back in May. Artists, geeks, and tech enthusiasts, yours truly included, were blown away at the premise of having a pen and stylus that could copy and paste colors from actual objects. All you would have to do is point the built-in scanner to any object, and the Scribble would replicate its color and let you draw on a tablet or phone or on paper, depending on which type you had.

The project launched on Kickstarter last August 11th and surpassed its target goal in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there.Continue Reading

Cardboard Jet Fighter Cockpit Big Enough To Accommodate Office Chair

cardboard-jet-fighter-simulator-cockpit-by-dogfight-boss

Getting work done or playing a sim game in a “real” cockpit, while having both feet firmly planted not the ground, is an ambition of some that usually requires lots of skill or very deep pockets. Dogfight Boss founder Lukas Homola thought he could do things differently, and decided to recreate the cockpit of an F22 fighter jet in an easy-to-asseble cardboard kit. He and a friend went to some aviation museums and took pictures of cockpits to recreate high definition textures for the kits. Since they’re made out of cardboard, it’s easy to cut out holes to fit any “instruments” you might want, like an iPad or a monitor or anything else you like. They’re made out of cardboard ribbing for durability, and all the parts except the center console are simply slid into place and not glue, which makes disassembly a snap.

It’s a $500 pledge for a physical version of the cockpit, though for $48 you can get a print-at-home PDF.

Sleep In a Pool.. Well, Sort Of, With Snurk’s Pool Bedding

Snurk Pool Bedding

Fancy sleeping on a pool? Not in a pool or on a water bed, but on a pool? Now you can, although it isn’t exactly an actual pool with Snurk’s pool bedding. The duvet cover set features a photographic print on both sides of the bottom of a pool. The water looks inviting and oh-so-refreshing. It’s definitely a welcome sight after all these too-warm and humid days we’ve been having lately (or in my part of the world, anyway.)

The set includes pillow cases so you can sink into a deep slumber and drown in sweet dreams. The Swimming Pool-themed beddings are available for €59.95 (about $79.)

Memobottle Is Shaped Like A Standard Piece Of Paper, To Better Fit In Your Bag

A4-A5-and-letter-sized-reusable-water-bottles-by

Reusable water bottles are great for the environment, but they’re used less often than disposable ones simply because they’re inconvenient to carry in a cramped bag. The Memobottle, despite its initially awkward appearance, could actually change a few people’s minds thanks to its shape. Flat and rectangular, the Memobottle comes in three dimensions: A4, A5, and Letter. Slip in into your bag or briefcase, and it’ll take up space alongside your other documents without disrupting the general shape of things too much. The A5 bottle carries 750ml (~25 oz.), while the other two carry 1.25L (~42 oz.). They are dishwasher safe and completely leak proof, and can be yours for a pledge starting at $20 for the A5 and $30 for the Letter sized Memobottle.
