Sushi Socks: Looks Yummy Rolled Up and On Your Feet

Sushi Socks

 

These delicious pieces of sushi might just knock your socks off–literally, because you’re supposed to pull them over your feet and wear them, not eat them. Each one features a sushi pattern that doesn’t look too out there when they’re on your feet, so you shouldn’t be afraid to wear them, even if you’re not big on colorful clothing or socks with loud patterns.

It’s a completely different story when the Sushi Socks are all rolled up and folded in your sock drawer, though, because they look just like delicious sushi!

The sushi detail is knitted into the sock with colored thread instead of being printed. Seven versions are available: Masuzushi (trout sushi), Shrimp, Octopus, Red Caviar, Tuna, Salmon, and Egg.

The Sushi Socks are available for $5.39 a pair.

There’s Nothing Puzzling About This Rubik’s Cube Mini Fridge

Rubik’s Cube Mini Fridge I’ve never mastered the skill of solving Rubik’s cubes, but there should be nothing puzzling about this Rubik’s Cube mini fridge. It’s basically a larger-than-life version of a typical (unsolved) Rubik’s cube. Pull on the discrete handle at the side to reveal the insides of the fridge that can fit up to nine cans of stacked soda cans.

Of course, the exterior doesn’t actually turn, so it will remain unsolved forever–or until you replace it. The fridge also comes with a warm and cool setting, so you can use it to keep stuff like leftovers warm and drinks cool.

One More Thing Your Phone Can Do: iPhone Laser Pointer

iPhone LAser Pointer

 

What can you do with your iPhone? Or better yet, the question should read: what can’t you do with it? First and foremost, it’s obviously a phone. Then it spins off into a camera, an audio and video recorder, a note pad, an organizer, a fitness tracker, a video game console, a music player, a map, and so on and so forth.

The capabilities of most smartphones are extended further with accessories like the iPin iPhone laser pointer. Dubbed as the “world’s smallest laser pointer,” the iPin fits right into the iPhone’s 3.5mm earphone jack. The entire thing weighs less than a gram and is powered by your phone, so there’s no need to replace batteries at all. The iPin also has an on/off switch so you don’t have to take it out when you want to use your phone in the middle of presentations.

It’s available online for $39.99.

Intelligent Blinker is a Wearable Turn Signal for Cyclists

Intelligent Blinker

 

The dark is sometimes a cyclist’s worst enemy. Unlike cars, bikes don’t come equipped with lights and signals so other people on the road might misread the signals (or lack thereof) and, well, you know what happens next. As a response to this, PhD students from Electronics Laboratoryat EPFL have come up with the Intelligent Blinker, which is a solar-powered wristband that glows when the cyclist extends his hand to indicate that they’re about to make a turn.

The Intelligent Blinker is built with a microcontroller, a magnetometer, an accelerometer, and a compass. It comes with a solar panel and built-in battery, which can be charged via USB. Together, these elements might just save countless lives and prevent numerous accidents.

The best part? The Goal Zero Torch Solar Kit is both lightweight and weather-resistant so you can take it with you anywhere. It’s available for $160.

Tell Tale Push Pins Tell All At a Glance

Tell Tale Push Pins

 

Too much of something often turns it into something undesirable. Take notes and reminders, for instance. A few tacked onto the board might be useful to remember the stuff that you should, but tacking everything from to-do lists and press releases to inspirational photos and other random stuff takes that usefulness away.

If you’re having a hard time unpinning stuff, then an alternative are these Tell Tale Push Pins. They basically tell you what they’re holding onto the board even before you check it out, so you’ll have a clue what it is without having to check every single note.

Each set of 8 is priced at $9.

Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick in crocodile leather case

redesign_bactrack_mf1

Don’t drink and drive, folks. You’ve heard that a million times, but the truth is that in many places there is a legal limit that allows you to have a drink or two, but not more, and it’s nor always easy to know whether you’re within the limit. Ideally, you shouldn’t drive at all, but if that’s not an option, something like the BACtrack S35 Breathalyzer can help out. It’s a tiny breathalyzer that connects to your smartphone and can tell you your blood alcohol concentration within seconds. It uses semiconductor technology, which isn’t as accurate as fuel cell tech, but combined with the company’s advanced tuning algorithm, can still give you results with +-0.01% accuracy. What’s more, the related application opens the door to a ton of social possibilities, which some inebriated people might appreciate. Let’s face it, how often have you posted “how plastered you were” last night? Now you can post the graphs to prove it.

Normally $70, it’s now $29.
