The Frywall Is A Splatter Shield For Your Bacon Grease


Looking like someone repurposed the dreaded cone of shame that you see on dogs after they visit the vet, the Frywall is actually a silicone apparatus designed to help prevent hot oil splatter from reaching your stove, and save you some time and cleaning effort. While it might seem that it could get in the way of your cooking efforts, know that it’s only semi-rigid and can be deformed somewhat if you need to get a spatula in there at an angle. The silicone construction means it can withstand heats up to 450F, which should be enough considering oil starts to smoke around 400F and deep frying is done at 350F. It also collapses down flat for easy storage. It’s $22 and $29, for the 10″ and 12″ versions, respectively.

SanDisk Working on a 1TB SD Card


When you realize that your SD card has more storage than the average laptop, you can’t help but feel that Moore’s law is still alive and well at least in one segment of the industry. SanDisk, a Western Digital brand, is reportedly working on a 1TB SDXC card. It has a working prototype that it is currently showing off at Photokina, in Cologne. This doubles the capacity of the record-breaking 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO® SDXC UHS-I Memory Card that it demonstrated at Photokina 2014, and makes it an appealing product to any 4K or 8K video-recording enthusiasts. It’s just a prototype at the moment, so we don’t have any key specs like read/write speeds or even price, but don’t expect this to be cheap.

Bird Of Prey Bike Gives Riders A Whole New Position


You’re probably already familiar with what riders look like on a recumbent bicycle, lazily leaning back, but if the Bird of Prey bike takes off you’ll soon see them in an entirely new position: semi-prone. In other words, this bicycle has its riders leaning all the way forward, legs stretched out the back, as if flying through the air, with their hips and elbows fully supported through leather pads. A creation of California-based architect John Aldridge, it’s been in the works since 1991 but only now hitting the production line. Aside from looking a little bizarre, the position is said to have its advantages, such as increased agility through a lower center of gravity, an improved aerodynamic profile, and increased power production:

Due to the Bird of Prey’s ergonomic layout, riders are reportedly easily able to turn its big 60-tooth rear chainring (linked to a 36/11 cassette), producing more torque than would be possible than with a smaller ring. They’re also able to spin like crazy when climbing hills, with their legs fully extended.

Like anything new hitting the market, don’t expect it to be cheap: it costs a whopping $8,500.

The CakeDozer Helps Get Your Slice Of Pie Off With Ease


It’s the little things. Like when you’re using a regular pie server and you’re transferring one delicate slice onto a plate, and the darn thing won’t just slide off, so you’re stuck having to unceremoniously flop it over to its side. That’s a little thing that shouldn’t annoy anyone, but does. So an item like the CakeDozer is created to solve this non-problem. It’s got a little bulldozer on the handle that gently pushes off whatever is on it. It’s not going to change anyone’s life, but might make the process of serving cake and pie just a little bit easier, so its $16.50 asking price seems more than justified.

Opposuits Releases Star Wars Suits


A little over a year ago we wrote about Opposuits’ PacMac Suits. We thought back then that these were the bee’s knees, but now that we’ve seen the company’s Star Wars suits, we have to reconsider. They come in two flavours called “Strong Force” and “Stormtrooper” and will definitely make… some kind of statement wherever you wear them. What’s even better is you’ll be able to own either one without breaking the bank, since they asking price is $110, with up to a 10% discount if you buy 10 of them at once.
