STEPDive Is A Snorkel That Turns Into A Kind Of SCUBA Device

STEPDive-snorkel-system-1

The difference between snorkelling and SCUBA diving is like night and day. Snorkelling can be done by inexperienced tourists on an island hopping trip, by clumsy grandmas looking for adventure, and even by young kids. SCUBA diving on the other hand requires heavy equipment, some formal training, and some degree of physical ability. The STEPDive system hopes to provide its users a taste of real diving, with the ease of snorkelling. The system is simple: it’s a snorkel attached to a 5 meter long hose, whose open end stays on the surface thanks to a floating buoy. 5 meters is a decent depth to explore and opens a ton of possibilities not normally available to casual snorkelers, without subjecting them to the rigours of learning SCUBA. The issue? Well… it’s kind of expensive, costing an eye-watering €430 ($457USD) super early bird pricing, and going up to €613 ($678USD) Early Bird and €700 ($774USD) (!) regular retail price. And the campaign funding its production is far from having reached its goal. Despite that, we think it’s a great product and we’re kind of hoping some enthusiasts will jump in.

This Fashionable Bag Can Carry and Dispense Wine

wine-bag-1

Girls are always carrying so much stuff in their bags, you have to wonder just how much of it is actually useful. I mean, do you really need to carry your entire makeup collection, “just in case”? Why not just get this Wine Dispensing Travel Tote that can pack a whopping 5 litres of wine, and cleverly dispense it through a spigot on the side?

This Scarf Ruins Flash Photographs

anti-paparazzi-scarf-flash-photography-protection-ishu-saif-siddiqui-11

If you’re famous enough to care about paparazzi taking your picture, then you’ll likely not even blink at the $376 asking price for the above scarf. It’s a creation of one Saif Siddiqi and is called the ISHU Anti-Paparazzi Scarf. It’s coated in a highly reflective material that will screw up a camera’s exposure settings when bright flashes are used. In other words, it’s completely useless in broad daylight. But hey, now that some celebrities have started using it, it’s bound to become a must-have item, which is why it’s hit mass production and can be purchased by anyone, famous or not.

The Bagel Smart Tape Measure Actually Seems Pretty Nifty

Bagel-Tape

Digital innovations in the field of tape measures have been sort of rare, but Bagel Labs is taking care of that with their release of the Bagel Tape. It’s a bit of a misnomer since there’s no actual tape to speak of, but it is a measuring device that packs a few features never seen elsewhere. It works on three modes: String, Wheel, and Remote Mode. On the first, you simply pull the measuring string out and the digital display will tell you exactly how far out it’s been extended. On Wheel mode, you hold the Bagel Tape with one hand and roll it on a surface to get its length. And finally, on Remote More, an ultrasonic sensor will bounce off walls and tell you how far away they are. All measurements can be sent to your smartphone, and annotated with a voice memo. So that way you don’t have to write anything down, and you’ll easily remember which measurement is for what. It’s nifty, and it’s decently priced at $60.

But for those die-hard fans out there, it’s a fun, officially-licensed product that you can own for all of £49.99 (about $65USD). It’s on pre-order for the moment, with shipment in October.
