kSafe Is A Smart Jar That Unlocks Only When You Achieve Your Goals

k-safe-2

A month ago we wrote about the Kitchen Safe, which was a jar that would only open up after a set amount of time had elapsed, with no overrides. It’s a cool concept, but the kSafe takes that a couple of steps further. Instead of being only time-based, you can also set up two other types of goals: an activity goal and a location goal. This way, you could, say, toss your PS4 controller in there and set it up so that it’ll only release it if you make your way to the library, where you know you have work to do. Or you could put all your cookies in the jar and have it open up only after you’ve walked a certain number of steps. Having those two additional unlocking methods makes the kSafe much more useful and versatile, forcing you to accomplish things you know you have to do but may run out of motivation to accomplish on your own.

The early bird pricing is $79, and it goes up to $89 if you’re slow on the trigger. The Kickstarter isn’t fully funded yet, but if it reaches its target, expect an October delivery date.

Deal Of The Day: 16% Off On SMFX Smart Bulb

SMFX-bulb-2

LED smart bulbs are great because you can control them from your smartphone, they usually display millions of colors, and hey, they’re just cool, ok? But they’re also usually expensive. Not so much for the SMFX Smart Bulb, relatively speaking. And in terms of features, it’s second to none:

SMFX is adjusted straight from your iOS or Android device so you can dim, brighten, change the color, or turn on/off your light without lifting more than a finger. SMFX will instantly transform the ambiance of your room, and knock some $$ off your energy bill in the process.

– Use for 40,000 hours (that’s 27 years of normal use)
– Go green— use 10% the energy that a standard bulb uses
– Use RGBW channels for brighter colors
– Turn the bulb on & off from the app
– Customize appearance with dimming & color options (16 million colors)
– Enter “disco mode” to change the light along w/ the music
– Schedule functions & set timers to fit your daily routine

That’s a serious bulb, and one which normally costs $59. But after today’s deal it’s $49.

Waka Waka: A Pacman Piercing

pacman-piercing

This is just too cool. There isn’t much to say, since the image kind of says it all. It’s a Pacman piercing, which could easily be expanded by simply adding more dots between the ghost and Pacman. This particular one was done by Precision Body Piercing in Marquette, MI (their Instagram).

LuminAID Solar LED Lantern Folds Flat, Lasts All Day

LuminAID-PackLite-12

When you step away from the modern world, full of taken-for-granted conveniences, it’s always a good idea to prepare yourself properly. Spending any amount of time in the wilderness requires not only a bit of courage, but some decent illumination at night. The LuminAID Pack Lite 12 Inflatable Solar Lantern is a waterproof light source that folds flat for easy storage, but once turned on, will provide you with up to 16 hours of brightness on a single charge. This charge, incidentally, is easily obtained by leaving the thing in the sun for 7 hours. The 12 bright LEDs contained inside are also able to flash in an emergency beacon mode, making it easier to find you at night if you ventured too far off the path and can’t find your own way back. Considering it’s only $23, it wouldn’t make any sense to make this an essential “must-pack” item for anyone contemplating extended time outdoors.

Infitinte USB Is The Modular USB Cable That Never Runs Out Of Ports

infiniteusb_cable_1

You plug a USB cable into your computer, and that’s it for that port: it’s used up and is no longer available. But what if the cable you’re plugging has a port of it own? This means that you could plug yet another cable in, and if that other cable is an Infinite USB cable, then you’ll still have a port free. Matter of fact, you could do this indefinitely, and just keep plugging more and more cables as you require them, creating a modular and expandable USB hub. That’s the premise for the Infinite USB cables, and it’s a cool idea.

The cable is short (8 inches) and isn’t meant to tether your devices from a distance. It’s got a magnetic plug that allows it to fold back on itself for easy transport. And the best part is there is a USB-C version in the works, which could make your life with the new MacBook a lot easier.

It’s a $12 pledge for a MicroUSB and $14 for a Lightning version, with shipping in June.

Disco Dog: Put Your Dog To Work With This LED Dog Vest

disco-dog-1

It’s cool that you’re taking your pup on a walk, but there he is, enjoying life and getting exercise, while he could be doing something useful instead. If you manage to get your hands on the Disco Dog, a cool vest covered in LEDs, you’ll be able to get your canine friend to display messages in what is sure to be an attention-grabbing fashion. Each vest contains 256 RBG LEDs, which allow you to display any color, scroll text, flash and do a number of animations, all of which are controlled through the companion app. There’s even a Lost Dog function that displays those exact words if Fido wanders out of range of your smartphone, encouraging passersby to help your puppy find his way back to you.

Yes it’s mostly a gimmick, but it’s a fun one and a potentially successful one given people’s general enthusiasm towards dogs. You’ll have to pay a good chunk of change to own a Disco Dog, though. The small vest costs a $300 pledge (and is sold out at the moment), while the Medium is $350 and the Large $400.
