Deal Of The Day: 50% Off On ZeroLemon SolarJuice 20000mAh Battery

redesign_1699_ZeroLemonBattery_MF1

External batteries just keep getting more interesting. The ZeroLemon Solarjuice 20,000mAh Battery comes as loaded with features as anything we’ve seen recently. More so, actually. Not only does it provide you with 20,000mAh in charging capacity through two USB ports, at 2.1A and 1A of output (that’s a lot, by the way), it also recharges itself through a 1.2W monocrystalline solar panel. So think about the usage scenario. You go out in the woods, camping, and you get to charge your electronics away from the grid. Then you leave your battery pack charging itself in the sun for the day, only to come back in the evening and be able to do it all over again. It’s brilliant, and more importantly, it’s also cheap. The ZeroLemon SolarJuice is $49.99 instead of the regular $100!

Spine Optics Frame Hinge Brings Innovation To The World Of Eyewear

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 2.36.47 PM

Wearing glasses can be second nature for some, but that doesn’t mean their eyeglasses are perfect. No matter how well fitting they are, there’s always the possibility of forcing them too far apart, or of the hinge becoming loose after some time. The Spine Optics hinge pictured above is an innovation from Italian designer Guido Medana, and features a “5 vertebra design” that attempts to mimic the human spine in its flexibility and durability. Unlike traditional glasses, the Spine hinge creates a small tension that lightly hugs the wearer’s face, adapting to any size head. This means they won’t easily fall off during exercise, but won’t be uncomfortable in a wide range of head sizes. The hinge also closes the temples automatically when you remove the glasses, a function no one else has. There are no screws to tighten, since the mechanism of action is achieved thanks to two cables and springs, as well as precision parts manufactured with a process called Micro Injection Moulding.

Price and availability are unknown, although there is word that contracts have been signed for distribution with major companies throughout the US, the UK, and Canada.

Popcorn Monsoon Puts The Fun In Pop… corn

popconr-monsoon

Yeah, that’s a sad headline, but there you have it. The Popcorn Monsoon is a little appliance for making popcorn, well, more fun. At least the popping part of it, since eating it is always kind of cool. The conceptual device uses hot air to get the kernels popped, which is healthier than oil. And then the popped corn gets pushed up this bent plastic tube and falls into an awaiting bowl. Kids can watch as the snack gets made, and they may look forward to eating it despite it being bland as heck.

Yes, this particular product has existed for ages, only this one has a longer neck and bright colors. But that’s just it, isn’t it? It’s amazing what a little design change can do to brighten up an otherwise bland and unassuming appliance. Sadly, it’s not a real product, though we suspect it would do well in the marketplace if anyone took the time to manufacture it.

KFC’s Double Down Dog Needs To Make Its Way Stateside, Pronto

double-dog-header

Look, we know what you’re going to say. It’s gross! What was KFC thinking?! Oh my God, what an atrocity. And yet… and yet we want to feast on this ridiculous creation by everyone’s favourite fried chicken joint. It’s called the Double Down Dog and is the Colonel’s version of a hot dog, except the bread bun is actually fried chicken. If that doesn’t blow your mind, then we suppose you’re not into food quite like we are. That’s ok, we sympathize with more sensible hearts; not everyone likes to eat dangerously. And KFC apparently feels that way too because the Double Down Dog was only available in extremely limited quantities, for two days… in the Philippines! That’s right, this beautiful monster was only to be sold at a select number of outlets in the Philippines, and each restaurant was limited to selling 50 of these a day. Why? We don’t know. But we’d love to start a campaign to convince the executives that there’s a market for this stateside. Because there is. Right? Right?

Floating Iron Man Suit Is The Coolest Useless Toy Money Can Buy

iron-man-floating-figure

We’re not sure it’s ever smart to spend a large chunk of change on a toy, but if you have $170 burning a hole in your pocket, the Iron Man Mark II Special Floating Edition sure looks cool. It’s part of the Egg Attack series, and floats in mid-air thanks to a combination of attracting and repulsing magnets.

True to the key features of the Egg Attack series, Iron Man’s every detail is meticulously crafted, including the armor, joints, and flying mode air deflector. The Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic floating version’s main body is painted with high-quality metal coating, showcasing Mark II’s steel-like armor. High-luminance LED light is hidden within the eye, chest reactor, and feet, which stays true to the night flying mode in the Iron Man movie.

The Egg Attack Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic Floating Version is shipped with a glowing magnetic levitation base, a customized battery case (fits 8 AA batteries, sold separately), and a protective sheet.

So that’s it, $170 for an awesome levitating Iron Man toy. Watch the video; it’s hard not to want it.
