Boomerang Wok Helps You Keep Your Food From Flying Around

boomerang-wok-16942

It’s entirely possible that you stopped yourself from ever making any recipes that required sautéing, like many Asian dishes, because you were worried about ending up with all your food on the floor. There is a certain technique to tossing your stuff around in a hot pan, and we can’t entirely blame you for being afraid. But look at the Boomerang Wok! Doesn’t it make you want to give it another shot? The special cupped edge lets you turn food with a simple push of the pan, making sure that whatever gets tossed in the air always lands back inside. The Teflon-coated surface is non-stick, and the whole thing can go in the over at temperatures up to 320F. It’s a little on the expensive side however, at $133. At that price, we might be tempted to make an effort at actually learning how to stir-fry properly.

Colorblind? The Eye2TV HDMI Dongle Will Color Correct Your TV For You

Eye2TV

For most people afflicted with it, colourblindness is a mundane reality of life: it’s not the end of the world, but you do wonder how things might look if you didn’t have it (yours truly does). The Eye2TV HDMI dongle plugs into any television and adjusts the colors on the fly to compensate for what colour-blind people don’t see. It sits between your source and your TV, altering the signal in real time. There are different levels of correction to accommodate the varying types of colourblindness, and other viewers with normal vision will reportedly not see that much of a difference.

The Eye2TV Adapter uses Eyeteq, “which is a new mathematical image processing technology based on world-leading research at the University of East Anglia, and has been transformed from the lab to real product by technology company Spectral Edge Ltd.” We will include a link at the bottom where you can download an app to test what the technology does. You’ll be able to upload pics and have them corrected, to determine if this is something you want to get. And if it is, the Eye2TV Adapter will set you back £50, or about $74, on their Kickstarter campaign. It’s far from being funded though, so if this is something you care about, spread the word.

RingStash Lets You Keep Your Proposal A Secret Until The Time Is Right

RingStash-Open

Imagine a scenario where you’re going to propose to your longtime girlfriend, ok? You have it planned just right, and you know the exact moment you’re going to pop the question. And then she asks you “Is that a ring box in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?” Surprise: ruined. Ring boxes are traditionally rather big and bulky, at least for today’s skinnier jean standards. RingStash is a new kind of box that’s only 0.5″ thick, yet presents the ring in as elegant a manner as fits such a special occasion. When closed, the ring lays flat inside, but when opened, a mechanism rotates it 90 degrees to display it in a spectacular fashion. It’s stealthy enough to carry around in a pocket, and won’t have your girlfriend asking you questions about unusual bulges in your pants. It’s a newer way to carry out an old tradition, and… we would be recommending it if it weren’t for the asking price: $99! At that price, we suggest to just wear a blazer and hide the $10 box in the inside pocket instead.

10-ft-cable-1

Admit it: you’ve sat on the floor, next to your charging phone, on more occasions than a self-respecting adult ever should.

It’s the Micro-USB type, so iDevices are out of luck. But there are millions of other phone, tablets and phablets who charge with this connector. We think that $14.99 for two of these is a ridiculously low price, so don’t wait and get yours now.

Steel Star Trek Coasters Boldly Go Where No…

startrek_coasters_1

You know… we’re groaning at the thought of having to write yet another pun-filled headline that’s a Star Trek or Star Wars reference. So you get the idea. Here are some coasters with the Star Fleet insignia stamped on them. They come in a set of 5, are 4″ on each side, and are made from 3/16” thick, Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel with a felt backing, so they’ll feel heavy and premium. There are many other ways of keeping your drinks from ruining your tabletop, but very few that proclaim quite as loudly just which brand of nerd you are (and by the way, we mean “nerd” in the best possible way here). The Star Trek Coasters are made by Easy seller ApocalypseFab, and cost $44 for the set.

What’s The Easiest Way To Shave Your Head?

Headblade-ATX-All-Terrain-Head-Razor-1

With this cool HeadBlade ATX All Terrain Head Razor, of course. At least, we imagine that if you’re going to go for the completely bald look, you could do much worse than by using the above product. It’s a blade mounted on an ergonomic handle, which also features wheels. It looks like a mini ATV, and you’re meant to roll it around your noggin for a little bit, until you’ve no hairs left. The handle is rubberized, for comfort and convenience, and while it isn’t the first such product on the market, we haven’t seen one with wheels before. We imagine this contributes to a no-nick, no-cut shave. It’s $15 and comes with one blade.

Beer Tea Bags Enhance Cheap Brew Flavour

beer-hops-1

Sometimes being on a budget means you gotta get the cheap beer, instead of the premium beer. If your palate is refined enough to tell the difference, know that there may soon be a product on the market whose goal it is to enhance fully brewed beer. Hop Theory: Beer Enhancing Sachets are little tea bags that contain a mixture of hops, fruit peels, and natural flavors that, when steeped into a recently poured pint of beer, improve on its flavour enough to make you forget you only bought it because you might not be able to make rent this month. Or, maybe you like to customize your beer and the idea of steeping little packets of flavour is appealing to you. Either way, the first mix is called Relativity, and contains “cascade hops, orange peel, coriander seeds, and natural flavors.” Each bag is made from a soilon woven mesh filter that is derived from corn starch and is 100% biodegradable. One bag will infuse up to 4 beers, and at $25 for 24 packets, it’s a fairly inexpensive way to liven up your malted beverages.
