Golchi Modular Bottle Lets You Carry Drinks Of Different Temperatures

golchi_modular_drink_bottle_1

Insulated bottles are great for when you want to keep a cold drink cold or a hot drink hot. But you do have to choose. With The Golchi Bottle however, you can have it both ways, since it features detachable modules that are independently insulated. In this way you can carry one cold drink (which stays cold for up to 24 hours) and one hot drink (which stays hot for 12 hours), as well as powders, nuts, medicines or other small items in the middle compartment. The modularity of the bottle even allows for more configurations, like splitting it into two smaller bottles, or connecting the top and bottom sections and making one large bottle. The spouts are adjustable so that you can get a slow flow for hot drinks and a bigger flow for cold ones. Everything is dishwasher safe. And the features go on and on. The Golchi bottle has clearly had plenty of thought put into it, and at a $35 pledge to get yours, its a steal.

The Whopper Air Freshener

whopper-air-freshener-1

Think of the Whopper Air Freshener as the ‘reverse freshener’. When most people buy these things to get the fast food smell out of the car, Burger King Brazil would like to help you do the opposite; this freshener smells just like the burger that inspired it. As crazy as it may sound, we’re convinced there’s a market for this. Considering things like Bacon Lube exist, it’s not much of a stretch of the imagination to conceive of hungry gluttons wanting their car to smell like one of the best tasting burgers on the market (yes, we said it).

Much as it would be great to buy this for yourself (or get it free, right? I mean, it’s not like someone would pay for this…), it appears to have been part of a publicity campaign where taxi drivers would hang it on their mirrors and pick up drunk clubgoers. The smell would of course overwhelm their already uninhibited senses and cause them to re-route their trip to the closest Burger King. Genius.

Turn Any Drink Into Bubbles

bubbles

There are many of us whose inner child died a long time ago. Maybe it has something to do with the soul-crushing drag of having to work full time and paying bills all your life. But if you’re one of the lucky few who’s managed to salvage even a tiny shred of youthfulness and wonderment, you’ll love the Bubble Lick Edible Bubbles Kit. It lets you turn almost any drink into bubbles you can then chase around the house and catch with your mouth.

It comes in a pack of 6 bottles, each containing 25ml of bubble solution with space remaining in the bottle to add ANY beverage you fancy – lemonade, cola, cold-press coffee, gin, tequila – anything (well, not thick liquids like milk). Screw the lid back on, give the bottle a gentle rock and just like that, your favourite drink has been transformed into bubbly deliciousness, ready to be blown all over the place with the included wands.

We suggest getting a few bottles, mixing some tequila in, and watching grown men run around your backyard drunkenly chasing bubbles. Good times.

It’s £12.99, or roughly $17 USD.

The Tab LapDesk Lets You Work, Multitask, Anywhere

lapdesk-1

Let’s face it, these days no one just focuses on one task without interruption. We all have our smartphones or tablets nearby, periodically interrupting our potentially important work with updates about the neighbour’s cat. If you’re on the go, it may be harder to find a surface large enough to accommodate your papers and your device simultaneously. The Tab LapDesk features a slot on one side where you can angle your device and keep an eye on questionably important updates, while still having enough area to get actual work done. It’s made from bamboo, and costs $59.

Retrofit A Backup Camera With The Pearl RearVision

Pearl-RearVision-Backup-Camera

You car didn’t come with a backup camera, but you’ve bumped into enough luxury sedans while parking that you’ve determined you should totally have gotten that option? It’s not too late to get your own, and with the Pearl RearVision Backup Camera, you can do so elegantly. Integrated into a nicely designed license plate holder, the camera will stream wirelessly to your smart device, you so can easily keep an things. The best part is the ease of installation; the RearVision is battery-powered and charged through a little solar panel integrated on the bottom bezel. That means no wiring, drilling, or modifications needed on your ride. A car adapter then plugs into your OBD port, and serves as a link between the camera and your phone. The only downside is the hefty $499 price tag. But if it stops you from damaging your bumper even once, we say it’s worth it.

But there you have it, a $90 Marshmallow Crossbow that shoots the delicious doughy cylinders as far as 60 feet away.

The Four Most Common Uses of Electric Linear Actuators

Linear actuators refer to the devices used to convert rotational motion into the corresponding linear motion. The monitor load feedback of a linear actuator is used in regulating the amount of force applied by the linear actuator. These devices have widespread applications in both the industrial and domestic settings. The various forms of energy used to drive electric linear actuators include piezoelectric, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical. However, DC or AC power is predominantly used to operate such devices. Electric linear actuators present many advantages to the user.

Repeated Linear Movement
Linear actuators are used for performing the task of moving a particular load repeatedly. They can continuously move a single load or various loads to specific consistent locations. Such repeated linear motion of the actuators requires synchronization of various axes in order to achieve coordinated motion. As such, linear actuators are the preferred choice for repeated, continuous and coordinated movement of loads.

Adaptable Movement
Adaptable movement refers to the motion that adapts or changes. Electric linear actuators are also applied in adaptable movements. In this regard, the motion’s nature, positions or load changes. These devices are used to attain and control adaptable movement by synchronizing them with various other machines. For example, linear actuators are used in the electric wheelchairs to improve their movements and thus enhancing the independence of persons with disabilities.
