Make Some Kind Of Statement With Nintendo Drinking Flasks

ilmn_game_flasks

We’re not sure exactly what you’re trying to say if you go around taking sips of bourbon from a plastic NES cartridge, but it’s nice to know that you can, since Thinkgeek now sells these awesome 6oz flasks. Perhaps you want people to know you’re a fan of retro gaming, and of drinking, and that you’re the sort of person they’d totally want to hang out with because who doesn’t love a retro gaming drunk? Amirite? The best part are the names: “Drunk Hunt”, “Fine Ale Fantasy” (coming soon), and “The Legend of Drink”. Get it? They’re drinking/gaming puns… Yeah… ok, we’ll show ourselves out. But hey, if your interest is piqued, just know they’re $20 a pop.

Oh, and also, considering the design, it might be hard to take actual sips from this flask, so maybe you pour yourself a shot or two, ok? Ok.

SmartRim Protects Your Pricey Mags From Curb Damage

smartrim_wheel_sensor_1

Many modern cars come with parking sensors that help you avoid hitting the car parked behind you. That’s great, but they do very little to help you avoid getting too close to the curb and scratching your precious mags. SmartRim changes all that. It’s an ultrasound-powered proximity sensor that attaches to the inside of each wheel well, and connects to a smartphone app. As you park, the sensors will indicate how close to the curb you are and help you avoid hitting it. There are no wires, so installation is a breeze.

Additional features include accelerometers that can tell you if the valet took your ride for an unhealthy spin, and the ability to use regular AA batteries for power; a single AA battery will last up to 1,000 parking cycles.

It’s currently being funded on Indiegogo, and a set of 4 SmartRim sensors will cost you $345. That’s a lot, but if you really think about it, you only need two for the back wheels, which is a very reasonable $179 pledge at the moment.

The Coast Is A Kayak That Folds, Origami Style

oru-kayak-2

Somewhat over two years ago we wrote about the Oru Kayak, a folding kayak that performed just as well as a non-folding one. Well now the company is back with a newer, longer model. While the initial ones were 12′ in length, The Coast and Coast+ come in at 16′, which makes them faster, more streamlined boats. They fold up into a bag that measures 32″X28″X13″ (or 15″) and weighs 31 lbs. or 34 lbs. depending on the model. That’s light and small enough to fit in the trunk of a car, to travel with in a plane, and lug around with you to any body of water you want.

The Coast weighs in at just 31 lbs. and takes under 10 minutes to unfold and setup. The Coast+ has all of the features of the Coast, plus many more: it includes ratchet buckles for easy assembly, an ergonomic seat for long paddles, thigh braces for control and comfort, full decklines and rigging for storage and rescues, and a super cool folding hatch for gear storage.

We’re big fans of Kayaking; it’s a great activity and an awesome workout. But having to rent can be a restrictive hassle, so we’re bullish about the Coast and Coast+. The cheapest way to get in on the action is to pledge $1,650, which will give you a Coast Kayak. Prices go up to $2,650 for the Coast+ which comes with an Oru Paddle, Oru Pack, Oru Skirt, Oru Dry Bag and Oru Float bags.

Beer Bottle Stein Lid Is Cool, Somewhat Useful

beer-bottle-stein-lid-1-595x496

You guys remember the Das Can in Stein attachment that turned any beer can into a cool beer Stein. Well, the Oktoberfest Party Favor Beer Bottle Stein Lid isn’t quite that elaborate, but it’s still awesome. It’s a metal lid that clips onto the side of a standard beer bottle and prevents insects from taking a swim in your drink; in the process it makes it look a little bit like a Stein. It’s just a quirky way to decorate your drink with a smidge of functionality on the side. At $9, there are worse novelty items to spend your money on.
