Hemingwrite Merges Old School Typewriter Mechanics With Modern E-Ink Display

hemingwrite-by-adam-leeb-and-patrick-paul-2

Committing word to screen requires at least a minimal amount of inspiration; we’d know, it’s sort of what we do. But not all inspiration is created equal and sometimes, for some type of writing, you need a device that has a little more cachet than today’s computer keyboards. The Hemingwrite is a new, single-purpose, distraction-free typewriter that merges an e-ink display with an old-school mechanical keyboard. It’s a dedicated writing machine with lots of cool features:

- 6+ week projected battery life – Pull a Thoreau and take the Hemingwrite to your off-the-grid cabin in the woods

– 1 million+ page memory – Never worry about having to delete old documents

– Best typing experience with the highest quality mechanical keyboard switches – remember those old keyboards with great tactile feedback? This is like that but better.

– Daylight readable, high contrast screen with backlight for writing indoors, outdoors in the daytime or at night

– Syncs with your favorite cloud apps like Evernote and Google Docs so you can review and edit your documents later

– Beautiful retro-modern design with built-in handle for easy portability

It even looks like it’s a real product in the making, though we have no idea at what price or at which point in time it’ll be released. You can sign up to be notified of that, along with updates to the project along the way.

Tongue in Tea: Tongue-Shaped Silicone Tea Infuser

Tongue Silicone Tea Infuser

 

You wouldn’t put your tongue in someone else’s cup of tea now, would you? I would. Not my actual tongue (because that would just be gross!) but this tongue-shaped tea infused that helps you prepare a soothing cup of tea.

Looking for a unique way to set your tea party apart? Then you need to look no further. The new Tongue shaped tea infuser gives a fresh new way to envy your friends with a unique design. The tea gently gets infused with warm water through the holes in the shape of the accessory so that you enjoy the fresh taste every time.

Now isn’t that swell? (Not to mention, slightly swollen too…) The infuser is made from food-grade silicone so you don’t have to worry about having it fall apart after several uses. The Tongue tea infuser retails for $9.

Jason Hockey Mask Spoon Evokes Terror With Every Bite

Jason Hockey Mask Spoon1

Jason Voorhees is a name that evokes terror in the hearts of those who believe (and to all those who watched every movie in his horror franchise.) If his name doesn’t, then perhaps his hockey mask will…and now you can have your daily fill of horror with these spoons inspired by the latter.

Use the spoons to stir lattes, to drink soup, and to spread peanut butter and horror all over your toast. The spoons are available on Etsy for $38.

Klatz is a Smartwatch and Headset In One

klatz smartwatch

Wearables are all the rage these days, and now they’re about to get a level up with the introduction of the Klatz. First of all, it lets you check the time while performing basic functions like alerting you to new SMS, emails, or incoming calls without having to fish your phone out of your pocket.

Smartwatches are nothing new, we know, but what makes the Klatz novel is that it also doubles as a headset. Just flip it open and use it like you would a regular headset to take calls. Battery life lasts for an impressive 10 days and it’s available in black and red.

The Klatz is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $99 will get you one of your very own.

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.
