Give You Pumpkins A Little Extra Bite With Fake Fangs

If you’re worried that your pumpkin looks a little more goofy than intended now you can turn up the spook factor with razor sharp vampire-like teeth. They’re little pieces of plastic that, as you’d expect, and can be embedded into your pumpkin to make it look much scarier. They come with large, medium and small teeth, but mark my words, the smallest pumpkins with giant fangs will be the most nightmare-inducing.

They’re available on Etsy for $7 for 3 sets of teeth. But what do you do once Halloweens over, I guess you could always stick some teeth into your fruit bowl and have the orange look like it’s eating the banana, that’s pretty scary.

Fitly is a Backpack You Can Wear While Running

If you’ve ever tried running, you know how hard it is to keep simple things in your pocket. Keys and wallets flop around like crazy, and phones are another story altogether, most people end up buying an armband to keep them phone safe.

Bringing a back pack would be nice, but they’re too heavy and loose to use, but Fitly is different. It’s a minimalist backpack with small pockets to hold things tight against your body while running. Its adjustable strap, which sits right under the chest, is what allows the Fitly to firmly stay in place and its gentle stretching pockets prevent your belongings from bouncing around. It’s great for those keys, a card or two and maybe even a nutrition bar, and lets you run without worrying that your stuff will fall out of your pockets.

It’s available on Kickstarter for $69 and seem like a great idea for most serious runners. Great, now I need a new excuse for why I can’t go running.

Amazon Key Lets Couriers Open You Front Door To Leave A Package

Amazon has gotten really good at this whole delivery thing. With their Prime 2-day shipping, same day shipping in some cities, and their famous $25 order gets free shipping deal, but now they’re trying to make it safer for that new iPad you ordered.

Their new service, Amazon Key, allows users who have both Amazon Cloud Cam and a Smart Lock to opt-in to a program which allows couriers to scan your package and sent the data to Amazon’s servers. If everything checks out, Amazon will unlock the door, allowing them to open it and leave you package inside your house.

I don’t know if I want a stranger to have access to my house. He might start cruising around and scope out all my valuables, if I had any, or gawking at pictures of my loved ones, again, if I had any.

If you have a lot of trust in Amazon, and want to keep your packages safe, maybe you’re into it. But, next thing you know, the UPS guy is taking longer to finish his routes and comes back rocking a pair of  Yeezy’s, a new iPad and a Labrador-Schnauzer named Han Solo.

Why-Tech Wednesday: Flatev Can Make Fresh Tortillas Like Kuerig Makes Coffee, But It’s Not Worth $199

For this first installment of Why-Tech Wednesday, I want to go back a bit to last year, to the first product that has been stuck in my mind like a bad tumor. It’s an appliance that uses dough pods to produce fresh tortillas, it’s the Flatev.

It’s a simple concept, but suffers from an unreasonable design, high price, continuous cost and poor concept. Let’s start with that, the concept, because as appealing as a fresh tortilla sounds, there’s no real benefit as opposed to store-bought tortillas. They may taste a little bit better, but at that point, you might as well make your own.
