This Contraption is “The iPhone of Garlic Peelers”?

garlic-shaker-1

Yeah… that’s a bold claim, but that’s what was in the email sent to us. Bold enough, in fact, to pique our interest and make us look at the thing. And while it’s a far cry from any Apple-type product, we suppose in the world of garlic peelers, this product does stand out. It’s a hollow tube with special grooves on the inside that peel a whole garlic bulb in 30 seconds. You simply break apart the head of garlic, toss the cloves in, close the lids and shake for 10 to 30 seconds. The grooves will impact the cloves in just the right way, removing the skin in the process. You’re left with a perfectly peeled pack of cloves in less time than it would take you to manually peel just one. The fact that both ends open up makes it easy to wash, and the design doesn’t hurt the eyes. The best part is that a $25 pledge will get you one.

SpinChiller Chills A Beer In One Minute, Costs $20 (DotD)

spinchill-1

Spinning an aluminum can in icy water in order to chill it faster actually works: you can get a beer from room temperature to frosty in about 60 seconds.

There’s nothing like a refreshing ice-cold drink on a hot day. With the SpinChill, you can cool off no matter how far you’ve strayed from the fridge. This innovative gadget chills drinks up to 30 times faster than a freezer, and can work its magic in a minute flat. Bring it to the beach, pool, picnic, or keep it in the car for emergencies—you’ll thank yourself later for saying yes to the SpinChill.

– Water resistant
– Pocket sized
– Chills up to 300 cans before requiring new batteries
– Spins smoothly to avoid foam creation & explosions
– Drops the temperature of your liquid 45 degrees in one minute

Lucy Solar Light Tracks The Sun, Keeps Your Home Illuminated

lucy_solar_light

As the earth spins, the rays of sun entering your home come in at varying angles throughout the day; this is a phenomenon we’re all used to. But what if you wanted the light of the sun to illuminate a specific section of your home? The Lucy Solar Light is a robotic mirror that tracks the sun and automatically adjusts its angle in order to keep the reflection on a specific spot (like on a plant, for example). Simply place Lucy where you want it, set it to reflect the sun’s rays on the spot you desire, and let it do its thing. Its Italian design is meant to look good in any decor, and its sun tracking abilities mean that you could save some money on traditional lights. Of course, modern design and high tech abilities often translate in higher prices and Lucy is no exception: you’re expected to pay $199 for it as a pre-order, though a shipping date isn’t specified.

This Exists: Samsung’s 16TB SSD

samsungssd-876x420

1TB and 2TB hard drives are pretty common these days. What isn’t, is a 16TB SSD. That is pretty insane, and it’s exactly what Samsung recently announced. The PM1633a features 500 256 gigabit (32 gigabyte) NAND flash chips crammed inside a 2.5 inch enclosure, albeit one with twice the thickness as a standard 2.5 inch hard drive found in laptops. This gives it a total capacity of 15.36TB, which Samsung feels comfortable calling “about 16TB”. It’s really impressive, and we expect the price to be equally as impressive; considering the drive was demonstrated in a server packed with 48 of them (totally a jaw dropping 768TB, operating at “2,000,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second). By comparison, the consumer-grade SSD that you have in your PC is probably capable of around 10,000-90,000 IOPS, depending on the workload.”), it’s clear the drive is targeted at enterprise customers who will have less trouble justifying its rumoured $5,000 price tag. Exact pricing and availability haven’t been announced yet, however.

Cardboard Laptop For Your Cat

cattop_webpage_01_01

Let’s face it: if you have a cat, chances are he’s already wandered onto your laptop as you work, confusing your keyboard for a warm bed and interrupting your workflow. You scratch his belly, shoo him off, and try to keep working, only to watch him do it again two minutes later. Maybe he wants his own laptop? Well, that’s exactly what you’re looking at here. This cardboard laptop features a neat customizable “slide-in” screen, easily replaceable with a printed desktop image of your choosing. There’s also a scratch pad keyboard that will give your kitty a place to exercise his claws, away from your furniture and other expensive items. It even comes with a fluffy mouse toy, because what Cat Laptop is complete without that? It’s $35.
