The Dark Knight Posts: USPS Releases Batman Stamps for 75th Anniversary

Batman Postage Stamps

The Dark Knight is everywhere, stopping the bad guys and keeping the peace in the city. After seventy-five years, he’s even helping get your mail delivered since you can find him in action on your envelope. Okay, so I’m not sure if anyone will actually use the stamps to mail out a letter since they’re collectibles, but Bruce Wayne is so awesome, he probably won’t mind being stuck in the mailroom if it’s for the good of mankind.

For Batman’s 75th anniversary, the US Postal Service has released commemorative stamps featuring none other than the Dark Knight. Each sheet of 20 stamps comes with eight different designs, from Batman in action to his signature poses.

Scrubba Wash Bag: For Last Minute Laundry, On the Go

Scrubba Wash Bag

There are two types of people in this world among the many different classifications: those who underpack, and those who overpack. Of course, sometimes you get it right once in a while and pack just enough, but it’s often one or the other. For those who belong to the former, there’s the Scrubba wash bag.

The Scrubba looks like a plain bag on the outside, but it’s packed with row upon row of nodules on the inside that function as an internal washboard. All you have to do is fill it up with water, detergent, and your dirty clothes and rub the Scrubba this way and that for 30 seconds to 3 minutes.

Unload and hang your stuff to dry, and you’ll have a fresh change of clothes in no time. The Scrubba is available online for $55.

BottleLoft Saves Some Space In Your Fridge

BottleLoft-1

Once again showcasing how we definitely do live in the first world, the BottleLoft is a device specifically designed to make more room in your fridge for beer. Because a full fridge is a problem, in some parts, and making room for beer is definitely an essential necessity. Ok… we’re only being a little bit sarcastic, because we actually do like beer and think this is a pretty cool device. It uses Neodymium magnets to hold on to your bottle caps, attaches to the “ceiling” of your fridge using a special 3M tape and can hold up to 88lbs under ideal conditions. That should be many times more than enough to hold 6 beers, so we’re giving the BottleLoft a hearty thumbs up. Especially at the $39 pledge pricing.

Semi-rigid Cubic Rubber Bands

rubber-1

These are sort of neat. They’re rubber bands shaped like a wireframe cube. They keep their shape, but of course they stretch since they’re rubber bands. They’re easy to find in a drawer, and we suppose that’s it as far as their advantages are concerned. And here come the disadvantages, or rather the disadvantage: it’s $10 for 3! They’re 20mm per side, if you must know, though to be honest if you end up buying these we have something to tell you: you have too much disposable income!

PhotoMath Application Solves Algebra Equations Automatically

photomath

Remember solving algebra equations in school? Ya, neither do we. It was one of those things you learnt just before the exam, and quickly expunged from your memory afterwards. It was hard, yo. But how different things might have been had we had something like PhotoMath back then. It’s an application that scans an equation on paper by using your smartphone’s camera, and then proceeds to solve it instantly. Not only do you get your answer right away, you get a step-by-step breakdown of the solution. This sort of immediate feedback can help kids know if they’re on the right track as they’re doing their homework, without having to wait until the next day to find out. Of course, that’s assuming they don’t just abuse the damn thing and skip the thinking part altogether, relying on it to get work done rather than to learn anything. Which is exactly what’s going to happen, so we’re not sure how to feel about it. And, in any case, it only solves simple linear algebraic equations, so you can forget about it helping you with your Calculus. And it’s not even out yet, with a “early 2015″ target. Still, if you’re curious about it, you can sign up to be notified when it’s ready for download.

Illumibowl Lights Up Your Toilet Bowl

illumibowl-1

It’t the middle of the night and you have to pee. You get to the restroom, then are faced with a choice. Pee in the dark and risk missing your target, or turn the lights on and blind yourself for a couple of minutes. If only there were other options. There are, my friend, there are, and the Illumibowl is the latest. It’s a combination motion detector and bright LED that turns on as soon as you walk into the restroom. It simply clips to the side of the commode, so requires no installation or fussing about. It’ll cycle through some colors while you’re there, and then turn itself off after a minute if it senses no motion. Best of all, it’s super cheap, costing only a $15 pledge to get yours by January, and that’s including shipping.
