LEVIT8 Is An Origami-style Stand That Elevates Your Laptop


Standing desks are expensive, but a lot of people see health benefits in doing at least part of their work on their feet. The LEVIT8 board folds into an elevated stand that’s just tall enough to bring your laptop to a comfortable height for working standing up. When you’re done using it, you can simply unfold it using a twist-and-fold technique, and it packs flat as a magazine, easily going into your laptop bag along with the computer. It is made of a single loop of 8 triangular panels which gives it its easily collapsible box-spiral folding mechanism. It’s water repellent and stain resistant, and can hold up to 20 times its own weight. Coming in three sizes to suit all your needs, the LEVIT8 will cost you a pledge of $32, in any size.

Another Job Lost To Robots: Shelf Stock Checker


When items are running low in your local supermarket, an actual human has to first notice this, and then start the process of re-ordering and restocking. Granted, it’s what grocery stores have been doing since forever, but now thanks to Tally, an autonomous robot from Sembe robotics, the kid in charge of doing this may be out of a job. Tally roams the aisles and scans the shelves, noting stock levels and automatically notifying its human owners if anything is running low or is misplaced. It knows its own way back to a charging station, and can work during normal business hours, rubbing elbows with people and drawing the attention of kids of any age. It’s currently in testing with several North American retailers, but there’s no word on any eventual mass rollout. We say it’s just a matter of time.

LED Beer Pong Table Amps Up Your Party

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 12.01.00 PM

Being 35, the days of playing beer pong are far behind, sadly. But I don’t remember it ever being so big of a ‘thing’ as it seems to be now. There are even tournaments for the questionable “sport” in places like Las Vegas (and plenty of others, I assume, I just don’t get out much)! So I shouldn’t be surprised to hear about the LED Beer Pong Table. It’s a pretty awesome looking table with an infinity mirror, and hundreds of LEDs that create an illusion of endless space beneath the surface. The lights change and flash to the music, and can be controlled with an IR remote. Seen in action, it seems to be just the thing that drunken frat kids would love. The full metal construction means it won’t easily break, and magnetic locks keep it closed when folded. It’s “regulation size”, so, you know, you can even do tournaments we suppose.

It’s a $629 pre-order.

Starling Makes Sure Your Child Hears Enough Words For His Intellectual Development


Studies have shown that the more words a toddler is exposed to when growing up, the more developed his social, emotional and intellectual abilities will be. In other words, the more words he hears, the smarter and well adjusted he’ll be. Everyone talks to their child to one degree or another, but it’s easy to get sidetracked and become inconsistent. That’s when Starling comes in. It’s a device that attaches to a baby’s clothing and simply tracks the number of words spoken in its presence. This way you can set realistic goals, and see whether you’re on track to expose baby-you to an appropriate amount of conversation. If it turns out that you’re feeling uninspired on any given day, the app can suggest “age-appropriate lexical activities”. You can check on your progress at any time by pressing button on the device, and there should be no privacy-invasion fears as the unit only counts the words but doesn’t record them. It’ll stay powered for up to 5 days at a time, is waterproof, and even has an LED to indicate when you’ve reached your target. It’s a $129 pledge to their Indiegogo, with shipping in April 2016.

Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cups


Getting your child to swallow a dose of cough syrup can be an exercise in patience, if not in futility. But when brute force doesn’t work, maybe cunning can overcome. The Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cup camouflages a sealed-off inner cup to keep the medicine and the fruit juice (or whatever) chaser separate, until the child actually drinks it all. There are ml and tsp calibration markings for easy measuring of medication, and the whole thing is of course BPS-free and dishwasher safe. It’s $4!

Death Star Waffle Maker


It’s very tempting to make an article filled with Star Wars puns and references, but you’ve likely read them all and wouldn’t be able to stop rolling your eyes at one more. At least, that’s how we feel if we read something like “you won’t need the Force to eat these waffles”, or “these are the waffles you’re looking for”. It’s like every blogger on the Internets just has to tie that into his writeup somehow. So we’ll just tell you simply: you’re looking at a waffle maker that makes waffles that look like the Death Star. There. That’s all there is to it. Waffles. Death Star. $40. The end.
