RightShears: The Angled, Natural-Grip Scissors

rightshears

Last year we wrote about RightShears. These were wacky-looking scissors with a sharp 90 degree bend right in the blades, which made it possible to hold with a a more natural grip than standard scissors. If you look at the picture above, you’ll understand immediately why RightShears would be perfect for anyone with arthritis, or with a desire to cut things in a more natural and ergonomic fashion. Well, we’re writing about them again because you can finally buy some. Their Kickstarter failed last time, but we’re happy to report they’ve relaunched and it is now fully-funded, with 56 days to go. You can get yourself a pair with a $14 pledge, with an estimated shipping date of February 2017.

Video: Castrol® EDGE®, The Titanium Trials (Sponsored)

The following article is brought to you by Castrol® EDGE®. -Ed.

Long time readers of this site will know that we have a diverse focus, most often writing about technology and gadgets, but very often verring off into topics we believe will interest the very same people who have a passion for consumer electronics. One of these topics is the automotive world. We’ve had our fair share of hands-on encounters with cars from various manufacturers, and we’ve always come away impressed with what is being accomplished at the very edge of automotive mechanical engineering (in each respective segment of course).

We are particularly fascinated by the narrow field where new technology intersects with old school design and engineering, so we were pleased when Castrol got in touch and asked us to look at what they’d done with their latest line of engine oil, the Castrol® EDGE® boosted with Fluid Titanium Technology. More specifically, we were intrigued by how they’d put their new oil to the test. You should watch the above video, featuring Koenigsegg One:1 driver, Christoffer Nygaard. Yes, Nygaard is an accomplished driver, but the exciting part isn’t so much his pedigree, as the creativity displayed by Castrol in their testing.

They asked Nygaard to race through a track virtually, at first, establishing his personal best time on a simulator. They then put him on the real track and asked him to race his clone using a Koenigsegg One:1, so named because of its 1:1 power to weight ratio (that’s right, 1,360 HP for a weight of 1,360kgs!). Did you gus ever play Mario Kart and raced yourself? Yeah, it’s just like that!

The Castrol® EDGE® boosted with Fluid Titanium Technology is three times stronger against viscosity breakdown than the leading synthetic and leading conventional oils, giving the cars that use it an edge over their rivals. You can watch how Nygaard fared against himself in the two minute video we’ve embedded above.

Egg Chair by Nanna Ditzel

Egg-Chair-by-Nanna-Ditzel-1
Having been a critically acclaimed design since 1959, the Egg Chair by Nanna Ditzel represents classic design in a minimal form. The unique, sculptural shape was created by Nanna & Jørgen Ditzel in 1959 and has since then been dubbed as a beautiful home decor and resting furniture. The demand for sustainable products have made rattan the more popular framework used to design this chair today. This piece is by Sika Design who has been renowned to produce rattan furniture since 1942.

So this looks like the sort of item you better buy now, because we can hear the lawyers writing their Cease & Desist letters already. It’s a Pokeball, but you won’t catch any pocket monster with it. Instead, you’ll use it to grind up your fine botanicals and put yourself in the mood to spend all day playing that game.
