Leather Beer Caddy For Bikes

beer-caddy

Making a beer run in the middle of the party can get annoying, but not so with the Fyxation Leather Bicycle Carrier. Instead of stuffing that six-pack in your backpack or bringing it back (gasp!) in your hands, just put the beers in this cool-looking brown leather carrier. It’ll fit right beneath your top post, making it super convenient. Ok… we’re sure some of you will complain that you have to take the extra step to remove each beer from its box and individually insert it in this carrier. It’s true… but just look at it! If you don’t have a backpack, this is still the superior option.

But hey, if you’ve been drinking, maybe it’s better to walk after all? Cycling while intoxicating is no better than driving, so be safe.

The caddy will cost you $57, from Amazon.

LightMode Helmets Will Get You Noticed On The Road

lightmode-1

Motorcyclists have a bad reputation for attracting attention in all the wrong ways. But while a good portion of them do like to simply show off, getting noticed is also a matter of safety. Car drivers are used to look for other cars on the road, but motorcycles are smaller and easier to miss, especially at night. Increasing your visibility is never a bad thing, and these LightMode Electroluminescent light kits could not only help in that regard, but could do so stylishly. They’re light-up wires that connect into a small control module, which itself is wedged between the shell and the padding or glued on with 3M adhesives. You can order them as a kit and make your own design. Or if you don’t trust your skills, you can order a number of helmets pre-fitted with the wires. There are three mode selections: constant glow, blink and off. You can use regular AA batteries, but 2,000mAh rechargeables will reportedly squeeze 13 hours of operation before needing to be charged.

Currently on pre-order on Kickstarter, $72 will get you a kit, which comes in aqua, red, white, green, blue, yellow, and pink colours. The pre-installed helmets start at $295 for an HJC CL-Y Razz, and up to $770 for a Shoei RF-1200.

Das Can-In-Stein Is A Beer Stein For Your Cans

das_can_in_stein_1

If you’ve ever done anything Oktoberfest-related, you’ve probably become acquainted with a beer stein. The ornamental pewter mugs are a staple at any bavarian-themed festivity, but they’re a little cumbersome to carry around. They’re pretty expensive too, sometimes. The Das Can-In-Stein started out as a Thinkgeek April’s Fool joke, but like many of these, it turned into a real product. It’s a pewter-looking plastic container that accepts any 12oz. can of beer (or soda, of course) and turns into a rudimentary stein. Yeah, sure, it’s a novelty item and completely unnecessary. But at $10, it’s a cheap way to have a little fun. It’s also kind of awesome to say out loud. Try it!

Maersk Just Set The World Record For Most Containers Loaded Onto A Ship

maersk_mary_01-590x330

In news only tangentially related to gadgets, the Danish shipping giant Maersk has recently announced that they’ve broken the world record by loading 17,603 containers onto their giant MV Mary Maersk ship. It is pictured here leaving the port of Algeciras, Spain, on July 21, 2014. That’s 17,603 TEU, to use the exact nomenclature, which means ‘twenty-foot equivalent units’, but you wouldn’t be too wrong thinking of them as containers. The ship itself is a mammoth “50 meters wide and 396 meters long. Its gross tonnage is 194,849, and according to MarineTraffic it is currently in the China Sea South traveling at a speed of 17.8 knots.” That’s a whole lot of goods making their way to us, and a good portion of them are probably consumer electronics.

As a matter of fact, the ‘tangential’ reason we’re even mentioning this, aside from how impressive the feat is, is that most of our electronics are Made in China (or elsewhere), and bigger and more efficient ships can translate into a faster and more efficient supply line. That means less waiting for us Westerners, who are always looking to get our hands on the latest gadgets yesterday.

The Chairless Chair Is Only There When You Want It

Chairless-Chair-by-Noonee-2

If you spend a good portion of your day on your feet, you’ve probably thought of just how sweet it would be to be able to sit now and then. But chairs are stationary, and there you are, moving around. If only you could bring one with you everywhere you go… Well, the Chairless Chair is essentially that: a wearable chair. It’s a light lower-limb exoskeleton that hardens at the push of a button and allows you to sit down anywhere you want. Keith Gunura, the 29-year old CEO and co-founder of noonee, the Zurich-based startup behind the device, informs CNN that it’s made from aluminum and carbon fiber, and weighs around 4 lbs., which makes it nearly indistinguishable to the wearer. To use, the wearer simply moves into the desired position and presses a button, which locks it in place, immediately relieving pressure from the lower limbs. A single 6V battery can power it for up to 24 hours.

The target market is industrial workers who spend most of their day on their feet, assembling things. Less fatigue could translate in increased productivity and worker satisfaction. BMW and Audi are actually going to start trials later this year, and if the tech catches on, perhaps a consumer version might make its way to the market eventually. Don’t hold your breath on that, however.

Spreading Cold Butter Just Became Possible

butterup

There are few things more frustrating than ripping a piece of bread apart with a chink of cold, hard butter. Solutions normally range from a quick stint in the microwave, to leaving it out of the fridge overnight, to using a newfangled bodyheat butter knife. This particular solution does seems to have them all beat, however. The ButterUp Knife has a string of grating holes that turn that hard butter into easily spreadable ribbons of salty dairy fat. Just run the knife atop your block of butter, and spread as you normally would.

It’s around $11, although you’ll now have to wait until March 2015 to get yours since the Kickstarter went through the roof and all the earlier batches are now sold-out.
