Food Spit Scanner Device: Because Someone Might’ve Spit In Your Food

Food Spit Scanner Device

 

So your temper got the best of you and you exchanged a few choice words with your waiter for spilling that soda all over you and your date. Now your burger tastes kind of funky and it looks strangely slimy..

If you have reason to suspect that someone spit in your food, then you might want to check out the Saliva Scanner. It’s a handy device that scans your grub for traces of saliva. The device is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, although the creators have left out most details on the tech and science behind the scanner. That might explain why it only has $200 in pledges with only seven days to go in the campaign.

Nonetheless, the concept is interesting and it definitely settles one first-world problem once and for all– that is, if it ever gets made.

Batmobile Baby Stroller: For Your Little BatBaby

Batmobile baby stroller

He’s your little superhero, and nothing anyone says will change your mind. Of course we’re talking about none other than your offspring because yes, parents can be biased that way.

If you happen to be a creative dad who’s up for DIY projects that’ll make your kid grin from ear-to-ear, then you can take a page from Tim Baker’s book. Obviously being a pro prop designer for Hollywood means that he’s got skills most dads don’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build your own little Batmobile stroller (but you might need the help of your able-bodied friends and SO, too.)

It’s probably awesome enough as it is now, but you can make it awesomer by getting the Luna. It’s a revolutionary mattress cover that turns your bed into a smartbed. It has embedded sensors, so the Luna can track your sleep and manage your bed’s temperature to a level that’s comfy with a few quick taps on your smartphone.

For the Lazy: Easy Sort Laundry Bags

Easy Sort Laundry Bags

Doing laundry is a multi-step process, and it begins with sorting all of your dirty clothes into different piles: one for whites, one for light clothes, one for dark, one for delicates, and another one or two for everything else that doesn’t fit into these categories. Or you could just skip the piles and sort your stuff as you take ’em off by getting a set of these Easy Sort Laundry Bags.

You get three bags: a khaki one for your whites, a navy one for dark stuff, and a gray one labeled “mom” for everything else– aka it’s the bag that will most likely go to the laundromat because you can’t figure out how to wash them.

The Easy Sort Laundry Bags are currently on sale for $29.
