redesign_MobileCloth_MF-v2_0914

Yes, of course you can clean your phone with a tissue, or even the corner of your shirt. But more often than not you’ll find yourself just pushing grease and germs around the screen, but not off. The Mobile Cloth is made from a special material that has been shown to lift up to 98% of germs present on a screen, with no need for chemicals. Each cloth is 9″ by 9″, and come in packs of 5, in varying colours. Normally $20, it’s $11.99 today.

Would You Wear The Moto Hint Bluetooth Speaker?

moto_hint

The stigma with Bluetooth earbuds continues mostly unabated; being seen with one in your ear is still a surefire way to declare yourself as a somewhat of a pompous nerd. But the Motorola Hint has a design aesthetic that makes it tempting to believe you could be forgiven for wearing it in public. It’s tiny, and doesn’t have a boom mic that wraps around your cheek, nor a plastic hook to hold on to your ear. It’s just a tiny bud that inserts in your ear and looks like a stylish hearing aid. Due to its small size, the battery doesn’t last very long, but the cool carrying case it comes in features a battery of its own that tops the Hint back up, up to twice, before needing a charge of its own. Pass-through audio also means you don’t have to sacrifice hearing in one ear when you’re not using it. It’s also not device specific, and will work with anything that has Bluetooth. It’s $149, but isn’t available yet. You can visit the website to sign up to be notified of its availability.

Radinn Makes An Electric Powered Wakeboard

Radinn-Electric-Wakeboard

If you’ve got about $20,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you might be able to get your hands (well, your feet) on this electric powered wakeboard by Swedish company Radinn. Made from carbon fiber, it weighs all of 29 kg (64 lb), yet carries an electric motor powerful enough to propel you at speeds up to 25 knots (29 mph or 46 km/h), for up to an hour at a time. If you go full-out, that’s more likely to be closer to 30 minutes, but still, it’s a decent range considering the product. The throttle is modulated through a wireless and waterproof handheld remote that you’ll have to tie to your body, of course, if you don’t want to lose it. The first production run has been pre-ordered already and should start shipping this winter.

Y-40 Is The World’s Deepest Pool

sys_media_107519-750x733

Located within the 4-star Hotel Terme Millepini in Montegrotto Terme, Italy, is the world’s deepest pool. It’s called Y-40, The Deep Joy. The name refers to the Y-axis (the vertical one), and -40 meters of depth (that’s 131 feet). It’s about 5 meters deeper than the previous world’s deepest pool, the Nemo 33, in Belgium. Containing 4,300 cubic meters (151,853 cu. ft.) of spa water maintained at a constant temperature of 32-34c (around 90F), you don’t need a wet suit to dive down. And on your way to the bottom you’ll encounter four caves for technical underwater training, as well as a viewing tunnel for curious onlookers. We’re not sure about regular admission prices, but a poster on their website advertises 100 dives for 2,000€, which works out to about $25 a dive.

Seatylock Is An Elegant Bike Lock

seatylock-3

Securing your bike in an urban environment normally involves carrying a separate lock, whether a chain or U-shaped. And while you may be able to tie down your frame and wheels, your seat will still remain vulnerable to theft (yes, it happens). With the Seatylock, your seat is the lock. Simply remove it and extend a 1 meter solid lock that will tie your bike down securely. “Seatylock has a universal adaptor that enables easy compatibility with any standard bicycle. After a simple installation it can be adjusted to your preferred saddle position.” Retail will be $129, but you can get it now for an $85 pledge, in either the narrow “trekking” configuration, or the wider “comfort” shape.

BTTF 2 Light-Up Shoes Available For Purchase

bacl-to-the-future-shoes

We’re just a few months away from 2015, the year Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future 2. Our hoverboards are nowhere to be seen, and our flying cars just don’t look right. But at least you can get your hands on the same light-up shoes our protagonist wore in the movie. Yes, we said light-up, but not lace-up; you’ll have to do that part yourself, although it looks like a simple velcro affair. The shoes are fully licensed and being sold by a Halloween costume company, with shipping expected in time for October 31st. Is McFly going to be a thing this Halloween? We doubt it, but that still shouldn’t stop you from spending the $100 asking price.

MittenFlask Is Perfect For The Slopes

FLSK-4548

Winter is just around the corner, and you’ll be wanting to booze up on the slopes, we know. No, you’re not? What kind of a person are you? And you call yourself a man…

Ok, whatever, we won’t judge. But if you do want to liquor up a bit while carving some snow, the MittenFlask seems just about perfect. One of the two mittens features a flask, connected to a bite valve so you won’t have to try to unscrew a top with mitten hands. We don’t know how much liquid it fits, but at $15 it doesn’t matter; some liquor is better than none.

There’s A Facebook Clone That Charges $9,000 For Membership

netropolitan-1

If you’re tired of rubbing elbows online with nothing but, you know, regular people, you’re going to want to take a look at Netropolitan. It’s an exclusive social network that charges $9,000 to enter. $6,000 of that is the initiation fee, then it’s $3,000 annually. In exchange for all those dollars, you gain access to “the online country club for people with more money than time”. But instead of a spa, jacuzzi, free towels, and rudimentary gym equipment (typical country club amenities), you’ll get to socialize with people just as, uh, special as you.

Netropolitan’s founder, James Touchi-Peters, 48, a composer and former conductor of the Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra, said he had trouble finding people to whom he could relate on other social sites. “I saw a need for an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash — an environment where people could share similar likes and experiences,” he said.

The hefty initiation fee, he said, “ensures that our membership remains exclusive, but also private.”

Members must be at least 21 years old and must register using their real names. Once in, they may form groups around common interests, but will have access to posts and status updates by all other users. There are no ads, the site is not indexed by search engines, and moderators are active at all times to police bad behavior (like spamming ads for your own business).

Allegedly, the site has already attract hundreds of members, although you can’t really check it out right this minute since it seems to be down.
