Caffeinated Peanut Butter, For That Double Morning Dose


Many people start their days with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Ok, mostly kids, sure, but some grown up kids as well. These people might be interested in the Caffeinated Peanut Butter by a Massachusetts-based company called Steem. Each 2-tablespoon serving of the product contains as much pick-me-up as a regular cup of coffee, and the entire mix is made from all-natural ingredients: green-coffee extract, salt, peanuts, peanut oil and agave nectar for a little extra sweetness.

It’s available from a variety of retailers around the Boston area, or online, for $5 a jar.

Snorkelling Takes On Another Dimension With An Underwater Jetpack


There are many things to explore on this planet, but most of them require some kind of physical effort. Like snorkelling, for instance. It’s all great fishing fun until you realize if you want to see anything at all, you will have to kick your finned feet around quite a bit. That’s an effort that can be avoided altogether if you strap the x2 Sport Underwater Jetpack to your back and wrists. Simply by pointing your fists in the direction you want to go, you’ll be able to travel up to 10kph (6mph) underwater for up to 60 minutes at a time. The propellers attach to your wrists, and are controlled through a handheld remote. The entire system weighs 5kp (11lbs) and will unfortunately set you back a hefty $2,000 as an early adopter. Yes, that does mean it’s a crowdfunding campaign that’s not even fully funded at the moment. And it does mean that you’ll have to wait until September 2016 until you get your own x2.

Chameleon Pen Blends Colors On The Fly, Creates Awesome Gradients


Drawing with an actual pen and ink is a thing that people still do, no matter how much digital drawing tablets have evolved. The Chameleon Pen is an interesting new type of drawing tool that allows you to produce multiple color tones, stunning gradations, highlights, shading & seamless blends, all with one pen. It does this by a process they call “fusing”, during which the nib of your pen enters into contact with the mixing nib of another flask containing coloured toning medium; the longer these two stay in contact, the stronger the gradient will be. The toning medium basically flows into your pen when the nibs touch, mixes in the nib, and then flows back out smoothly as you draw. It’s rather complicated to explain properly, but watch the video below and you’ll see the beauty.

Prices start at $5 for one random colored pen, and $25 for 5 skin or gray toned Chameleon Pens.

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck


Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.

This Hippie Van Holds Your Drinks, Keeps Them Cool


Back in the days when Volkswagen wasn’t embroiled in an emissions scandal, they made cars everyone wanted to own. The Westfalia became an iconic representation of the 1960’s hippy culture, and it lives on in many people’s hearts as a throwback to a simpler time when music sounded better and Kim Kardashian didn’t exist. Even though the company doesn’t make them anymore, you can still get one in the form of the Volkswagen Panel Van Cooler, a large, wheeled cooler for drinks.

It faithfully reproduces the same trim details of an early Samba model that became an iconic symbol of the free-spirited 1960s, including the original’s eight panoramic roof windows, fabric sunroof, and two-colored paint scheme. An overhanging “hat” (that previously shielded a driver’s eyes from the sun) runs around the cooler’s entire top, providing an easy grip for retrieving one’s preferred beverage from a spacious interior with 3/4″ of insulation that holds up to 24 16-oz. bottles and ice. Made from pressed steel, the cooler has a telescoping 24″-long handle pulls the cooler along on its 8″-diameter rubber tires, allowing you to steer the cooler’s front wheels into just the right spot next to a lawn blanket. Integrated drain hole in the rear.

This cooler is as much of a statement as it is a practical way to keep your beverages cold. But all the attention to detail, and quality craftsmanship means it’s not cheap: $500.

Ako Dice Reimagine A Centuries Old Design


Dice have looked just about the same for a very long time. But that’s no reason to keep it that way. Kacha, an architect, decided to redesign the iconic gaming prop into the Ako Dice, pictured above. The number of each face is represented by a line, giving the piece a Tron-like feel and a techno-futuristic aesthetic. He brought his idea to Kickstarter, where he successfully convinced 6,545 backers to part with their money. They might be getting their Ako dice soon, but if you want your you’ll have to sign up on his website and wait for his store to go online. We’re not sure what the price is, but the anodized aluminum dice could sure take their place in our next Monopoly marathon.

Spill-proof Barware For Clumsy Drinkers


If you haven’t tipped over your beer glass after a night of drinking, you just hadn’t been drinking enough. It happens to the best of us, but there’s no reason we should have to spend so much time buying new glasses when a better option exists. The Mighty Mug Barware set features a special bottom the company calls “Smartgrip Technology”, which makes it impossible to tip over.

Not to be confused with a magnet or suction cup, the Smartgrip at the bottom of the cup creates a vacuum that locks the mug onto the surface – effectively preventing it from being knocked over. The vacuum is released instantly when the mug is lifted straight up (requiring no extra effort).

The glasses are made from BPA-free Tritan plastic, which means they’re nearly indestructible, and go in the dishwasher with no issue. There is a Wine Stem Glass, a Beer Pilsner, a Pint Glass, and a Double Old Fashioned, with prices starting at $30 for 2 on their fully-funded Kickstarter campaign.
