Somabar Is A Robotic Drink Maker For The Home

somabar-3

Making tasty cocktails can take a little bit of skill, which is why many people just opt for a good ole beer or wine when drinking. But Somabar hopes to take most of the effort out of the equation by giving you the ability to make hundreds of cocktails at the simple press of a button. The WiFi-enabled appliance carries six special pods that you are meant to fill up with your own combination of liquors, spirits and chasers, as well as a smaller ‘bitters’ pod. Once you’ve told the related application just what’s in these pods, you’ll instantly have access to a list of available drinks.

When you press that button on the app, your SOMABAR will take the ingredients from scratch, infuse bitters (if you are in the mood) and dynamically mix them in precise quantities using positive displacement pumps before pouring out your craft cocktail in less than 5 seconds. The mixing comes from a combination of fluid dynamics, kinetic energy, and turbulence created by static vanes. What that means is fewer moving parts to maintain, as well as fast and perfectly mixed cocktails. Our on-board software and sensors make it easy to make new recipes and manage your inventory (liquid gold).

The pods are dishwasher safe, easily attach and detach from the device, and can be stored in the fridge so your booze is cold.

It’s a $399 pledge for now, with expected delivery in July 2015.

Self-Tightening Bionic Bra Being Developed

Bionic-bra_2

It’s a dilemma most men are unaware of: that of what type of bra to wear? Something comfortable will usually not provide enough support at the gym or during vigorous activity. And sports bras will keep your boobs in place, but at the cost of comfort. A two-bra approach is the most common solution, but researchers at the University Of Wollongong in Autralia have spent the last 25 years trying to develop a bra that does well in both situations. It’s only recently, thanks to new materials and 3D printing, that they are starting to see good results. The ‘Bionic Bra’ they’re developing would feature smart materials that tighten when needed, providing extra support when physical activity is detected, and relax when calm returns.

The bra isn’t quite ready for commercial release, but a working prototype seems to have been developed and work is underway. How far away from prime time this is, and at what cost, is a mystery for now.

All in all, the Coffeeboxx seems like the perfect coffee brewer for the serious outdoorsman or “dirty jobs” kind of guy. For a reasonable $225 pledge, you won’t even have to pay much of a premium on regular single-serve machines.

Lymbit

If you lose or misplace stuff on a regular basis, then the Lymbit should be on your shopping list.

It has a 50-meter range and can be set to send you notifications if you’re outside of this range from the paired objects.

It functions as a pet tracker and as a security system of sorts for your home as well, as it can be set up to detect movements of doors or windows that burglars might use to break into your home.

Hush Earbuds Block Outside Noise, Let Important Sounds Through

hush_smart_earplugs_1

These earphones are made with one goal in mind: to give you some peace and quiet. Hush earbuds are noise masking earplugs that don’t stream music at all. Instead they play from a variety of pre-installed sounds, with the intention of masking out external noise. Coupled with a memory foam plug, they allegedly give you the ability to isolate yourself from your surroundings when you need it most, for up to 10 hours at a time. Pre-installed sounds are

- White Noise
– Brown Noise
– Pink Noise
– Ocean Waves
– Rainfall
– Fan
– Crackling Fire
– Babbling Brook
– Waterfall
– Thunderstorm

However since Hush is connected to your phone, pre-selected notifications can still make it through, that way you’re not completely in the dark. It’ll let your morning alarm through, for instance. And if they fall out of your ears as you sleep and your alarm rings for more than 30 seconds, Hush will assume they’ve fallen out and allow the phone to blare out as usual.

It’s a cool concept for anyone looking at an inexpensive way to block out the world; a $115 pledge will get you a pair, delivered by May 2015.

One-man Construction Jobs Are Much Easier With The Measure-It Adhesive Tape

Measure-It-Adhesive-Measuring-Tape2

Ever tried to do some repairs at home all by yourself? Then you probably know how frustrating it can be to measure something, while having to hold the measuring tape in place as you mark the spot down on the wall. Then there’s usually the added fear that you screwed it up somehow, so you do it again a few times to be sure. It sucks. So we’re totally digging the Measure-It Adhesive Tape. It sticks directly to your surface and features ruler markings in Imperial units, as well as 16″ center markings indicating positioning of studs. Hang paintings, tiles, carpets, anything you can think of with ease. Then when you’re done, just pull it off and it leaves no residue. It’s $8 for a 32′ roll. Yet another great stocking stuffer.
