Athena: Aims to Reduce Sexual Assaults


The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group – Ed

Athena helps protect women from sexual assault with one push of a button.

Sexual assault is a serious issue in every country. When founder Yasmine Mustafa came to realize the severity of the issue after a South American solo trip she decided to use her time and energy for the development of a solution for change. It was with this goal in mind that ROAR for Good was born, along with their flagship anti-assault device, Athena.

The Athena is a state-of-the-art device designed specifically to be as effective as possible while maintaining a level of inconspicuousness. The idea behind Athena is to ward off an attacker before any damage can be done while simultaneously calling for help from the authorities and any other contacts you wish. When Athena is activated it releases a powerful alarm and will send text message containing the individual’s location to emergency contacts.

Starling Makes Sure Your Child Hears Enough Words For His Intellectual Development


Studies have shown that the more words a toddler is exposed to when growing up, the more developed his social, emotional and intellectual abilities will be. In other words, the more words he hears, the smarter and well adjusted he’ll be. Everyone talks to their child to one degree or another, but it’s easy to get sidetracked and become inconsistent. That’s when Starling comes in. It’s a device that attaches to a baby’s clothing and simply tracks the number of words spoken in its presence. This way you can set realistic goals, and see whether you’re on track to expose baby-you to an appropriate amount of conversation. If it turns out that you’re feeling uninspired on any given day, the app can suggest “age-appropriate lexical activities”. You can check on your progress at any time by pressing button on the device, and there should be no privacy-invasion fears as the unit only counts the words but doesn’t record them. It’ll stay powered for up to 5 days at a time, is waterproof, and even has an LED to indicate when you’ve reached your target. It’s a $129 pledge to their Indiegogo, with shipping in April 2016.

Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cups


Getting your child to swallow a dose of cough syrup can be an exercise in patience, if not in futility. But when brute force doesn’t work, maybe cunning can overcome. The Medicine Dispensing Sippy Cup camouflages a sealed-off inner cup to keep the medicine and the fruit juice (or whatever) chaser separate, until the child actually drinks it all. There are ml and tsp calibration markings for easy measuring of medication, and the whole thing is of course BPS-free and dishwasher safe. It’s $4!

Death Star Waffle Maker


It’s very tempting to make an article filled with Star Wars puns and references, but you’ve likely read them all and wouldn’t be able to stop rolling your eyes at one more. At least, that’s how we feel if we read something like “you won’t need the Force to eat these waffles”, or “these are the waffles you’re looking for”. It’s like every blogger on the Internets just has to tie that into his writeup somehow. So we’ll just tell you simply: you’re looking at a waffle maker that makes waffles that look like the Death Star. There. That’s all there is to it. Waffles. Death Star. $40. The end.

WiperSwiper Squeegees Your Car Window As It Rolls Back Up


We have a rule: no lowering the car windows for at least two hours after getting a car wash. Doing otherwise means streaks that you can’t get rid of without physically getting out of the car and wiping them. For anyone obsessed about keeping their vehicle clean, this is a reality. But now with the ViperSwiper, those days may come to an end. It’s a strip of rubber that you install on the outside of your car, sandwiched between the window and its regular rubber lip. The ViperSwiper then squeegees your window clean as you roll it back up, getting rid of any streak marks that would normally be there after a wash. It does require self-installation, but it seems pretty straightforward and requires no tools other than a scissor. And it will need changing every 3 to 6 months, like regular wipers. Fortunately, it’s pretty cheap, at $20 for two 40 inch strips that you cut down to size. If the Kickstarter funds, you can expect them by February 2016.
