Auxillite iPhone 7 Adapter Is As Elegant As These Things Go

smartphone-audio-jack-charger-auxillite-640x534

Apple’s boneheaded decisions can often create opportunities for other manufacturers to develop products to fill in the gaps the company so courageously opens up. The lack of audio port on the iPhone 7 is creating a secondary industry of dongles and adapters, and the Auxillite is one of the more elegant ones we’ve come across. It allows you to do the most basic of things with your brand new phone: charge and listen to your normal freaking headphones at the same time. The device even features a Digital To Analog Converter (DAC) running at 16-bits with sampling frequency 44.1kHz/48kHz and 24-bits with sampling frequency 96kHz. It’s small, sleek, and fits-in with the overall aesthetic of the phone. And at $13 for one, it’s priced just right. The kickstarter is fully funded and the device should ship in June 2017.

The Menorah Bong For A Happy Hanukkah

menorah-bong-24869

There are many ways to be festive this Holiday Season, and we think the Menorah Bong is just about the most creative accessory with which to complement this year’s Hanukkah. What this is is pretty obvious and self-explanatory, but just in case you’re truly clueless, you’re looking at a water pipe with eight bowls, made to look like a Menorah. It’s a scaled down version from previous years, easily fitting on a desktop, at 14″ long by 4″ wide. The challenge, of course, is to figure out how to light all eight bowls at once without choking.

420Science has been making these for a while, but we’ really like this year’s format. We just wish it wasn’t an expensive, limited-edition (60 pieces) item, costing $600.

Redundant Clock Is Redundant

redundant_clock_1

This is the Redundant Clock, by graphic designer Ji Lee. It’s a clock that shows you what time it is by showing you what time it is… if that makes any sense. He conceived of it several years ago as a school project and ever since he posted the image to his portfolio, he’s had people all over the Interwebs ask him where they can buy it. It was just a concept until recently, but now he’s got a fully funded Kickstarter where you can get your own for all of $49.

We’re Cool With The STK Multi-tool

stk_multi_tool_1

Look, multitools are a dime a dozen, and we’ve long stopped paying attention to the endless stream of pitches we get over this new one or that new one. However every now and then we come across one that stands out for one reason or another. We can’t quite put the finger on why the STK Multi-tool (STK stands for ‘Sliding Tool and Knife’) caught our attention, but there you have it.

A compact and elegant titanium and steel tool that combines a sliding blade with a money clip, a pry bar, 1/4? bit driver, flat-blade screwdriver, bottle opener, and wirestripper. Its blade has two edges – one for cutting, and one for scraping.

Maybe hit the jump and check out all the pictures, as this might help make sense of why we like it so much. Do we like it enough to pay the $185 pledge to own it? Well, maybe if we were adeventuresy types… but we’re not.

Foodsniffer Tells You If Your Meat Has Gone Bad

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-7-25-57-am

How many times have you pulled out a three day old uncooked steak from the fridge and stuck it right up your nose, wondering if it’s still good to cook. Or taken a hearty whiff from that tuna steak in the hopes it hasn’t gone bad. It’s not always easy to be sure and I’ve found myself asking others for their opinion before taking a chance on some potentially bad meat. Well with the Foodsniffer, a handheld connected smart device, I wouldn’t have to ask anyone at all. I’d simply connect it to my smartphone, prop it up right against the meat and take a measurement of the gases emanating from it. In seconds I’d be able to know if it’s safe to ingest or if it gets tossed. No taking chances, no second guessing, and no botulism! It’s $89.
