The AirBow Kicks Bow Hunting Up A Few Notches

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 3.52.20 PM

We’ll leave the debate about whether hunting at all is cool for another day. The fact remains that many people do hunt, and many choose to do it with crossbows or even plain old bow and arrows. That’s cool, we can see the appeal, although it’s a little too old-fanised for our tastes. Now, without going to the world of firearms, the Pioneer AirBow by Crosman does seem to let you crank up your arrow game a few levels. Powered by 3,000psi of compressed air, the weapon is able to shoot 8 arrows at 450fps in the time it would take a regular bow to fire off 3, and they’re all consistent thanks to a pressure regulator. You can refill the compressed air canister with a High Pressure Hand Pump or a 4500 PSI Charging System. And the entire setup will cost you $849.

HyperChiller Coffee Maker Makes Iced Coffee In One Minute

hyperchiller-1

So… making decent iced coffee isn’t as simple as it sounds. You can make drip coffee and pour it over ice, but then you’re melting the cubes, diluting your brew and ending up with a weak drink. Or, you can make it concentrated, say by making a triple espresso shot… but you might put too much or too little ice and end up with the wrong concentration anyway. OR, you can chill your coffee overnight… but who’s got that much time? The HyperChiller Coffee Maker can let you cool your hot brew in as little as one minute, which you can then pour over ice that you won’t have to worry about diluting. You simply put the chiller in the freezer overnight, and once you pour the hot coffee inside, the large surface area will expose more of your brew to the frozen walls, chilling the liquid by as much as 130F in 60 seconds.

It’s $30.

Pizza On Your Gas Stovetop? Yes, It’s Possible

Pizzeria-Pronto-Stovetop-Pizza-Oven

Getting a good pie requires a few elements, the most important of which is a really hot pizza oven. It’s not ever over that reaches the 600F that usually yield great results, but with the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven you’ll get there in 15 minutes flat… as long as you’ve got a gas stovetop. If you do, once the temp is reached, your pie will be baked in as little as 6 minutes!

Most conventional ovens can only achieve temperatures of 500 F and require up to an hour to reach those heats. The Stovetop Pizza Oven can heat up to 600 F in about 15 minutes, allowing you to cook your pizza in as little as 6 minutes. The Stovetop Pizza Oven uses one of your stovetop’s gas burners to reach cooking temperature. Simply place the oven on top of your burner and turn it on. The oven’s heat-efficient design traps and reflects heat to create the optimal pizza-cooking environment. Dual cordierite baking stones absorb the direct heat from the flame and redistribute it evenly, eliminating hot spots. The stones are separated by a layer of air to diffuse heat, and the bottom stone has a cutout for improved airflow. The built-in thermometer lets you know when it’s time to cook, and the moisture vent in the top prevents your pizza from becoming soggy. With the Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven, you can get pizzeria-perfect pizza in your own home.

The device will yield 12 inch pizzas reliably, and costs a very reasonable $161.

Sacrificial Chair Serves As A Clothes Rack

silla-practica

You know that chair in the bedroom you just toss your clothes on, only to finally take them off twice a month and toss them in the laundry hamper? Yeah, well, it’s not doing its purpose of letting you sit now, is it? So why bother? The Sacrificial Chair elegantly acknowledges this common habit and is made for the sole purpose of tossing garments haphazardly on. It’s a simple metal wireframe, easily assembled after being shipped flat, and serves absolutely zero sitting duty. We imagine the philosophy is that if you can’t change your bad habits, you may as well embrace them. You will, of course, have to pay $140 for the privilege.

IKEA Hotplate Forces You To Ditch Your Smartphone For Dinner

ikea-hot-pot-1

Dinnertime conversation… Some of you might remember the days where you’d actually, you know, talk to one another at the diner table, rather than peck away at your smartphone between bites. If these memories are felt with a sense of fondness, maybe you can bring that old tradition back. IKEA Taiwan has a put out a video showcasing a hotplate that only gets hot if enough smartphones are placed underneath it. We’re not sure how the tech works (is it just a scale?) but the more phones you put down there, the hotter the meal gets. There is very little information on this, and we doubt it’s something the company is planning on releasing to the public. But we can bet there’s a strong market for something like this.

Watch the video to get a sense of what they’re hoping to accomplish.

It’s Beginning to Look Up for Wearables

smartwatch-828786_960_720

The world of wearable tech continues to develop in interesting ways. One of which is that it is actually becoming more fashionable. Note that we said fashionable, not trendy – just because something is trending does not automatically make it fashionable. Where most wearable devices up until now were produced by tech companies attempting to create devices for market consumption that went beyond mobiles, it seems that the fashion industry itself is beginning to jump on the tech band wagon, producing wearable tech that is actually wearable!

Fossil

Fossil is a well-known brand for watches first and foremost, although they have also created quite a name for themselves within the bags and accessories sector as well. Ultimately, when considering anything from Fossil, one considers something of style and quality. So with Fossil dipping their feet into the tech sector, the result has been a production of wearable devices that are actually attractive and fashion-forward. And it doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, since Fossil Group has recently acquired tech company Misfit for the hefty investment of $260 million. With this partnership, Fossil is poised to innovatively expand their wearable tech product line and establish themselves even further as one of the bigger competitors on the market.

Tag Heuer

Another company that has perfected the fashion-meets-tech dilemma that has left other companies baffled is luxury watch brand Tag Heuer. Tag Heuer has collaborated with even bigger tech industry geniuses Google and Intel to produce the exceptional Connected Watch. The Connected is based on their previously successful Carrera collection design, and is perhaps the nicest looking smartwatch on the market, although there is some concern over the price tag, which currently sits at $1,500. The Connected moves wearable tech out of the realm of a sportswear accessory – like Moov is marketed as – and into the realm of a smartwatch that can actually complement a business suit, or whatever other looks you might be going for when wearing a luxury watch.

Only time will tell where smartwatches and wearable tech is going to from here, but as far as we can see on this increasingly visually appealing horizon, the future is indeed looking up.
