Dry In 30 Seconds: Body Dryer Eliminates Need to Towel Off

Body Dryer

So this gadget right here that looks almost like a weighing scale (oh wait, it actually also happens to be one!) could get rid of towels once and for all. Aptly called the Body Dryer, it promises to dry you off in half a minute or less, which is way faster than you could ever dry yourself off with a towel.

The Body Dryer has been in development for over two years, creator Tyler Overk explains. He adds: “We realized that there’s so many germs, so much bacteria that we’re reusing and putting back onto our bodies after we’ve cleaned ourselves from the shower or even coming out of the pool. We came up with eliminating towels.”

Ain’t What It Seems: Covert Motorcycle Security Camera

Motorcycle Security Camera

Security cameras come in different shapes and sizes. Some are extremely small, such as the ones installed in clocks and fixtures, for example. Others are large but still discrete, like this motorcycle security camera by Japan Security System Co. As the name implies, it’s a security camera in the shape of a motorcycle. Despite being much larger than your typical security camera, it relies on just that to keep a low profile.

They’re meant to be installed at the entrances of hotels and other establishments where it would be uncommon to find a motorcycle there. Instead of head and tail lights, it has off-the-shelf video cameras installed instead. Two side-facing cameras are also installed on the seat.Continue Reading

LEGO is Coming: Game-of-Thrones Inspired Minifigs

Game of Thrones LEGO

Citizen Brick is calling this the “Dragon Sword Fighter Force” minifig set, but we all know what it really is: a Game of Thrones-inspired set of minifigs that features most of the characters you know (or at least, used to know) from the hit HBO series. LEGO isn’t keen on creating an adult line for their sets and minifigs so Citizen Brick has stepped in for the time being to satisfy adult toy collectors and builders for the meantime.

The minifigs are being sold in sets of three, so there are a total of four packs to collect. As a special treat, you’ll get a figure that looks like Mr. Martin if you buy all 12 figures at once.

PackPoint Makes Packing As Simple and Easy As Possible

PackPoint

Want to know what kind of person someone is? Just look at his friends, what he eats, what he wears, how he treats others, what he spends his money on–and how he packs. For example, if he just throws stuff in at the last minute, then you can probably say he’s a reckless (and perhaps adventurous) type of guy. If he makes extensive lists and packs several days before his trip, then you can say he’s a neat and orderly guy who likes being organized.

Whichever type of person or packer you are, there’s an app called PackPoint that can help you out.

For Happy Breakfasts: Crack a Smile Mold

Smile Egg Mold

Not everyone wakes up to greet a new day feeling chipper and full of life. That’s especially true for night owls and for people who just aren’t morning persons. For these people, something that can help or at least add a little cheer is the Crack a Smile egg mold. As the name implies, the mold basically turns scrambled eggs into smiley faces and you probably can’t help but crack a smile when you see a humongous, yellow smiley face on your plate.

If you’re not much of an egg person, then you can use the mold for your pancakes instead.
