Finally: A Nutella Lock

nutella

Wake up in the middle of the night with a Nutella craving, only to find your jar nearly empty because your significant other got to it before you? Yeah, it happens, but you can put a stop to this nonsense. The Nutella Lock is an acrylic contraption specifically designed to accommodate the iconic jar. It’s being sold on eBay Germany, and doesn’t ship stateside. It started out as a bit of a joke by Daniel Schlobloch, a German furniture designer who was tired of his kids stealing the sweet concoction, but now over 250 of these have been pre-oredered and it seems to be taking a life of its own. It’s €9.99 (approx. $11 USD).

It’s very often not until you actually have to do something that you realize just how hard it is to accomplish. Like… how often have you thought about how complicated it could be to get a decent HD-POV video underwater? Like, where will you attach your GoPro, at least for a reasonable amount of money? Thanko Japan often has answers to these kinds of questions, and in this case doesn’t disappoint with the $49 GoPro Underwater Mask. As you can tell, it’s a simple mask for tasks like snorkelling, and comes with a standard GoPro mount, which will work with any version from the Hero2 onwards. It sure beats holding the cam in one hand and trying to swim with the other.

EggMap Lets You Zoom In By Squeezing

eggmap-1

The iPhone brought us “Pinch-to-zoom”, but the EggMap is hoping to get us acquainted with “Squeeze-to-zoom” instead. It’s a conceptual creation by Denes Sator, a product/industrial/graphic designer based out of Budapest, Hungary. And it consists of a flexible air-filled ball with a detailed map printed on it. In its normal state, you will have trouble distinguishing details, but if you squeeze it, a portion will be enlarged and the details will then become visible. It’s a cool concept, plus it can double as a stress ball, which your fancy iPhone certainly will have trouble doing. Sadly, you can’t actually get your hands on it yet, but it looks like Denes is making some efforts to bring it to market. You can sign up on his Facebook page to get updates on the EggMap.

ScoopTHAT! II Is A High-Tech Ice Cream Scoop

Product_F_scoopII_BLK__01_a9d30dbe-5b9d-4502-a1d5-115b0092d19d_1024x1024

Scooping ice cream: it’s a serious first-world problem. Heck, it could even be a second world problem, since these guys do have ice cream, right? The issue is that most scoops get as cold as the frozen cream they’re trying to extract, making hard to carve a ball. The ScoopTHAT! II however features a biodegradable gel in the handle that transfers its heat to a special “thermo-ring” around the edges of the scooping bowl. This keeps the edge hot, cutting through ice cream like a hot knife through butter. The non-stick bowl prevents the frozen treat to stay glued, simply and easily dropping onto your awaiting cup or cone. There’s no need to heat the ScoopTHAT! II as the large gel heat basin in the handle will just absorb the cold as you scoop away. It’s a brilliant design, and better yet it’s super cheap at $25. Sure that may seem like a lot for an ice cream scoop, but consider the frustrations of the alternative and you might see the value.

Furoshiki Shoes Wrap Around Your Feet Like Bandages

Vibram-Furoshiki-Shoes_4

Are we the only animal species that requires footwear? I’m no zoologist, but the whole idea of having to wear shoes always struck me as odd, considering we are animals, yet we absolutely require some external item on our feet in order to go about our business. They always feel a little clunky and external to our bodies. The Furoshiki Shoes however really look like the most comfortable shoes on the market. They wrap around your feet like bandages, conforming to your foot’s shape rather than forcing them to conform to the shoe. They are produced by the Italian company Vibram, but are designed by Masaya Hashimoto. Each feature elastic velcro straps that you simply pull around and tie down. They cost around $140, and come in several different colors.
