Embercase Protects Your iPhone, Keeps Your Hands Warm and Toasty

Embercase iPhone case

 

Anyone who has tried to dial or type with freezing fingers knows that the task is futile, or extremely time-consuming at best. You can get gloves with capacitive patches on the fingers so you can still use your phone when you’ve got them on, or you can get the Embercase and do away with the gloves.

The Embercase is designed to keep your iPhone safe from the elements while doubling as a hand warmer to keep your hands warm and toasty. It connects to your mobile device via Bluetooth so you can control its temperature via a companion app. You don’t have to worry about stuff overheating, as the case is made from titanium with a layer of Aerogel ceramic fiber to insulate your iPhone from the heat.

Instant Happiness: Chocolate Cake in a Can

Chocolate Cake In A Can

Life can get pretty rough sometimes, but there’s no problem that a caring friend, a warm hug, or a slice of chocolate cake can’t solve. But why have just one if you can have all three? Not everyone has baking skills, but most people should find pouring water into a can simple enough–and that’s exactly all anyone has to do to “bake” the Food Ministry’s Cake in a Can.

They’re available in a bunch of yummy flavors, from classic chocolate and coffee to red velvet and chili chocolate. Each can contains a cake mix that’s measured to make a single cake, simply by adding water. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Cake in a Can is available online for £5 (about $9).

Burrito Scented Candle From the Stinky Candle Co. Ain’t So Stinky

Burrito Scented Candle

 

Wake up to the smell of burritos wafting through your flat. The scent of ground beef with choice spices like cilantro, cumin, and cayenne, with hints of salsa and guacamole here and there is what you should expect when you light one of these burrito-scented candles from the Stinky Candle Co.

Sounds dreamy, smells even dreamier, except for those who aren’t a fan of Mexican food. It’s best to steer clear of ‘em when you’re on a diet, though. The candles are available online for $9.99.

Microfiber Lined Tie: Look Dapper, Keep Your Screen Clean

Microfiber Lined Ties

 

Wiping your phone’s screen with the back of your sleeve will clean it up a bit, but it won’t be able to give you the smudge-free screen that you want. For that, you need a microfiber cleaning cloth, but not everyone can be bothered to keep one on them at all times. But if you go to work in a suit and tie, then here’s an alternative you might want to consider: this tie that looks like a regular tie, except for the fact that it’s lined with microfiber on the other side so you can wipe your screen with it when it’s got unsightly prints and smudges.

The microfiber-lined tie is available for $25.

Type Your Letter, and ‘Snail Mail My Email’ Will Write and Send It For You

Snail Mail My Email

 

There’s just something about snail mail that makes it mean more than an email or instant message. By “it,” we don’t mean just the message, but the whole thing in general. I suppose a lot more effort goes into writing a letter and taking the time to mail it out versus typing it up and hitting the “send” button.

San Francisco artist Ivan Cash gets that a letter is often more than just a letter to the recipient. So in 2011, he started the Snail Mail my Email project where he invited people to shoot him an email, which he would then write and mail to the intended recipient for free. The project has since evolved into a week-long event where hundreds of people volunteer to write letters sent in by people from all over the world.
