Use It, Don’t Brick It: LEGO Flash Drive

LEGO USB

The long wait is over: the official Lego flash drive is finally here. Sure, modders and DIY-ers have made their own equally awesome Lego-inspired USB drives over the years. But the same can’t be said for the lazy, Lego-loving geeks who don’t have the knowhow or are just too lazy to make their own.

The fully-licensed Lego flash drive looks like several plates were stacked one on top of the other. The coolest part? You can use it like a regular brick and stack whatever you want onto it to make it truly your own.

The Lego flash drive is available in a variety of colors and capacities. Prices for 16GB start at $12.99, and it comes with a bonus Lego brick to boot.

Spreadthat Butter Knife Uses Body Heat to Spread That Butter

Spreadthat Butter Knife

Butter isn’t the easiest thing to spread on a bagel if you just grabbed the tub from the fridge. The good news, butter lovers, is that it now gets easier with the Spreadthat Butter knife. It’s a futuristic-looking butter knife that’s coated in titanium. Aside from making the knife look cooler than the average, it also serves the purpose of conducting and transfering heat from your hand onto the blade. That way, the butter, jam, chocolate, or whatever it is you want to spread melts and in turn, becomes easier to spread.

The Spreadthat Butter Knife is available for $20.

ElectroVine: A Green Extension Cord

ElectroVine

You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. That applies to a lot of things, extension cords included. Okay, so it’s not like they’re that offensive, but they do make nightstands and shelves and wherever else they can be found look very unsightly. If you’re particular about how your home looks and want an alternative to the usual bright orange cord you’ve got, then here it is: the electroVine.

It gives your home a touch of green, even if it’s artificial. It’s basically an extension cord dressed up in the guise of vine. It adds to the decor of your home while being completely functional at the same time. What’s not to like?

Fully-functional 3D-Printed Drone Made Using 3Doodler pen

3D printed drone made using 3Doodler pen

We have come a long way since the 3Doodler – the 3D printing pen, surprised the world by raising over $2 million on Kickstarter. One thing that has changed for good since then is that some of the most incredible works of 3D art have been designed using the 3Doodler. Case in point is this 3D printed flying hexacopter drone made entirely with the 3Doodler. Created by Louis DeRosa of Plasticity Productions, the 3Doodler printed hexacopter can actually fly like an efficient drone.

Except for the motor, motherboard and battery, everything on DeRosa’s drone is made from 3D printing. Like many 3D creators would affirm, working with the 3Doodler is just like working with the pen on paper, but it wasn’t as simple for DeRosa. The first version of the drone he conceived had some design flaws and proved to be a little off balance. If you’ve built your own drones, or have used a hexacopter like this, you’d know – complete balance is key to a hexacopter’s consistent flight.

Working more cautiously on the things he’d done incorrectly, DeRosa created the second version as a 6-winged flying drone. It took DeRosa a few hours to work upon the first version and arrive at a fully tested second and final version.

TowlHub Holds Paper Towels, Charges Phones

Towlhub

 

It’s a towel holder, it’s a charging hub–no, it’s the TowlHub and it’s actually both. Everyone needs a holder for paper towels because it’s just inconvenient to use them without one. At the same time, people use their mobile devices so much that they need to be recharged every day (or a couple of times a day, if they’re really used that much.)

So presto: instead of being just one or the other, the TowlHub combines both so you can make the most out of your space and your towel holder. Win-win.

The TowlHub retails for $49.99.

redesign_LimeFuel_Mainframe3_08141

You’re looking at a 15,000 mAh battery pack, called the Limefuel Lite USB Battery Pack. That’s a lot of mAh’s, which means you can charge phones several times. Better yet, it comes with two USB ports, so you and a friend can both get juiced up at the same time. No more arguing over who gets to use the external battery! A digital display tells you just how much power is left, and it even has a built-in flashlight, though we’re not sure why. It might as well have had a lighter… Anyway, it’s normally $55, and today it’s $34.99.

Vapshot Mini Vaporizes Your Favorite Liquor For An Instant Buzz

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 9.26.56 PM

The Vapshot Mini is a home-use machine that takes your favourite liquor and vaporizes it so you can consume it through your lungs, rather than through your stomach. This means you feel the effects much more quickly, and actually use much less alcohol to achieve the same blood alcohol concentration. In fact, you’re using about 1/60th of the normal volume of alcohol, which also means you’ll sober up much more quickly; insufflation (the act of blowing vapour into a body cavity, like your lungs) is a much more efficient method of consumption, which explains these particular dynamics (quick to get drunk, quick to sober up, little alcohol use). It’s an entirely different experience than drinking, and doesn’t appear to be as unsafe as some people might have made it out to be. You can use your own spirits, and you will still taste them as you inhale them. It’s $899 for the machine, which comes with two “serving bottles”, which are necessary to consume the vapour.

3D4C 3D Printer Brings Full Color Printing To The Game

3D4C-printer

Getting stuff 3D printed is neat, but you usually end up with a monochrome item that later needs to be painted. While some see this as an opportunity to get creative, other might prefer to have the option to output in colour immediately. The 3D4C 3D printer pictured above combines 4 filaments to create a wide range of colours in your prints. It’s billed as the first CYMK 3D printer, and we’re inclined to believe them. And despite featuring relatively novel technology, this printer claims to be able to achieve 100 microns of resolution, which is on par with the Replicator 2X. Currently raising funds on Kickstarter, an £850 ($1,420 USD, roughly) pledge should get you a unit. But hurry since this is Early Bird pricing, and it goes up once the initial 100 units are sold.
