Polygon Is A 4-in-1 Origami Measuring Spoon


Good design has always attracted us, and the Polygon spoon is as elegant a design as we’ve seen in quite some time. It’s a measuring spoon that’s flat in its natural state, but when pinched at the appropriate places it folds up into an appropriately sized receptacle. There is a tablespoon Polygon and a teaspoon Polygon, each one featuring 1/2, 1, 1-1/2, and 2 T, and 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1 tsp, respectively. It’s really easy to use, wipes clean with just one swipe of a wet rag when laying flat, and lets you wipe off sticky liquids (think honey) back into their receptacle for little to no wastage. It’s even possible to use it as a spatula with which to spread whatever you just scooped with it. The fully funded Kickstarter will require a $12 pledge to secure your own pair of Polygons, with shipping in January 2017.

The Fend Helmet Is Serious About Folding Down


It’s never a bad idea to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle, but their bulk makes them hard to carry after you’re done riding, and this makes it unappealing for many. To make your life easier, The Fend helmet is able to fold down to 1/3 of its original size, kind of like an accordion. Its proprietary hinge means it won’t collapse in case of an accident, and is designed to exceed all US CPSC and European EN1078 Safety Standards. It features excellent ventilation and a plush interior liner for added comfort. A $79 pledge will get you a helmet of your own, with expected shipping in May 2017.

The Pocket Shot Arrow Slingshot


Have you ever tried to get around with an archery bow? Those things are pretty huge and kind of stand out wherever you go. Imagine trying to take the bus with one! But the Pocket Shot Arrow Slingshot lets you achieve almost the same thing with a much, much smaller footprint. It’s a ring-shaped plastic device with a rubber pouch attached to one side and a set of bristles in the middle. The bristles hold your arrow centered while pulling back on the pouch will store up enough kinetic energy to launch your arrows at up to 140 feet per second. Granted that’s nowhere near the 350-400ft/s achieved by a traditional bow and arrow setup, but again, consider the portability. If all you want to do is some target practice and aren’t looking to bring any serious game down, the Pocket Shot is $90.

The Piggyback Driver Helmet Is Where Dignity Ends and Parenthood Begins


Presumably, carrying your kid on your shoulders is a fun experience. But now you can make that experience even more appealing, if perhaps only to your child. The Piggyback Driver Helmet is meant to give your kid some handlebars while they’re riding high on your shoulders. Certainly it beats choking you from behind with their tiny hands, but it’s once you discover its features that you realize this device just literally turns you into a steed. Turning the handlebars one way or another will light up an LED patch on either side of the helmet, letting you know when your toddler wants you to turn left or right. A horn button will attract the attention of anyone nearby to your complete abandon of any self respect, while a turbo button will give your kid a chance to further humiliate you by encouraging you to run faster. All in all, it’s one of those things that looks totally cool… for someone else to own.

It’s not a product that you can buy just yet, having only recently been demonstrated at the New York Maker Faire. The creators are in the process of looking for backers to bring this project to market, though we wonder why they aren’t just Kickstartering it.

TRiLIGHT Motion Activated Light Uses LEDs For Maximum Efficiency


The price of LEDs has dropped significantly over the years, and we’re starting to see some really useful products at an affordable price. The TRiLIGHT Motion Activated Garage Light screws into a standard socket but puts out 3,000 lumens, which is about 4 times more than a standard 60W bulb, and yet only needs 25W to accomplish this. Your garage will be flooded with light, with you can direct pretty much anywhere you want through the three adjustable panels. The motion sensing feature doesn’t use one of those old school sensors that require you to jump up and down and wave your hands around, it uses “Microwave Motion Sensing Technology” to detect even the smallest movements and light up as soon as you need it. One TRiLIGHT will set you back $99 right now, down from its expected $129 retail price.
