Ever tried making your dog pose for a selfie? Yeah, didn’t go too well, did it? Well, that’s because you’re doing it wrong. Getting a canine to hold its attention on what you want is hard, unless you know know the trick: tennis balls. The PoochSelfie is a smartphone attachment that holds on to a tennis ball on one side, and to your smartphone on the other. In this fashion you can sneak as many selfies and portraits of your dog as you like, while he stares straight at the camera, fixated on his favourite toy.

The Tempescope Will Recreate Tomorrow’s Forecast For You In A Plexiglass Cube


If you want to know whether you’ll be needing your umbrella tomorrow, you could just fire up a weather app on your smartphone and check. But it’s a lot more fun if you use the Tempescope to get that information. It’s a plexiglass cube that doesn’t tell you the weather: it recreates it. The device is able to generate microclimates within its transparent enclosure, and it’s currently able to do rain, clouds, and lightning. The company is working on making it snow, but we imagine that’s quite the engineering challenge. It goes online and is able to retrieve the forecast for your city, or any place you designate, allowing you to share your current weather with your loved ones, for example.

The IndieGogo campaign launches on September 30th and the first 2,000 unit run will be offered to anyone willing to pledge $200 for it.

PhotonGrill, An Inflatable High-Power Portable BBQ


The PhotonGrill is an inflatable, portable BBQ that uses the power of the sun to cook your food. It’s great for places where you’re not allowed to start a fire, since it uses no flames and no fuel to get the cooking pan scorching hot. It’ll reach temperatures of 500F/260C in as little as 5 minutes, which is faster than charcoal grills. It does this by letting you unfurl and inflate a parabolic mirror that focuses the sun’s rays exactly where the pan itself sits. The entire setup takes 3 minutes, and the pan provided with the kit is “solar-optimized”, whatever that means. The PhotonGrill neatly folds away into a backpack, making it easy to take with you on your adventures. If the idea of cooking your food with the planet’s only true source of extra-terrestrial energy tickles you, you’ll have to pledge around $225 to their Kickstarter campaign.

Modern Art: Explained


File this one under “pop culture”, or even just “culture”, but we’ve come across a handy image that we’d like to share with you all, even if it has absolutely nothing to do with tech or gadgets. It’s a drawing by John Atkinson, and it does a decent job of explaining the fundamental differences between the different types of art styles. From cubism to surrealism, this little guide will help you sound a little more cultured next time your girlfriend drags you to the museum.

Because Why Not: General Mills Is Giving Away A Selfie Spoon


Who hasn’t had a hearty bowl of cereal and thought “Gee, I sure wish I could take a selfie with this spoon, right now.”? Someone at General Mills has, this much we’re sure of, because it seems the company is giving away a selfie stick spoon as a promotional item for their Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals. It’s a legit selfie stick that extends to 30 inches, and uses Bluetooth to trigger your camera… only at the other end of it there’s a spoon. The idea, we imagine, is to make it easier to take pictures of yourself while gobbling down some of their delicious cinnamon-y cereal. They even suggest a hashtag: #selfiespoon.

The spoon itself is free to US residents (you only have to pay for shipping) but it’s currently out of stock. We’re not sure if that’s because they’re understocked, or because there’s an actual market for this. However we suspect the folks at General Mills are aware of how ridiculous this is, since one of the items on their descriptions is “Really a Thing!”. Yes… it’s really a thing.

The Jammock Hammock Means You Can Nap Anywhere


Did you know you could take a nap on top of your Jeep? Well, if you get the Jammock Hammock, you can. It fits Jeep Wranglers 1987 to present in the YJ, TJ, JK, and JKU models. It also will fit the bed of just about any pickup truck, where it’ll provide a bit of protection to your valuables, on top of giving you a soft area on which to lay down and sleep. It’s made from 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon and will easily withstand more than 350lbs, but the company won’t commit to a higher number for fear of lawsuits. Still, it’s a cool item to own, and at $138, won’t break the bank.

KeepKey – Bitcoin Hardware Wallet

Protect your money from hackers and thieves with the KeepKey Bitcoin hardware wallet. You can consider it to be more like your own private Bitcoin vault. The device will work with the Bitcoin wallet software on your computer by taking over the management of the private key generation, private key storage and transaction signing. It then generates a Bitcoin private key by using a random number generator which is combined with the randomness provided by your computer. Once you generate your private key, you will receive a one time opportunity to write down a backup of your KeepKey that is available in the form of a twelve word recovery sentence. Since your KeepKey is PIN protected, it will be useless even if it falls under wrong hands. Your money stay safe and under a secure storage system.
