The DrillBeach Umbrella Digs Into The Sand For You

drillbeach_3

Its not like many people go around complaining about how hard it is to jam a beach umbrella in the sand. But then again, it’s not because something is already easy that it couldn’t be easier. That’s the entire point of technology, isn’t it? In any case, the DrillBeach is an electric beach umbrella that features a corkscrew at the bottom; press a button and it easily digs itself into the sand with barely any effort on your part. Since it’s electric, this means it uses a battery, which you can then use to charge your electronic devices through its integrated USB port.

It’s not a life changing product, to be sure. But if you’re already in the market for a beach umbrella, you might consider dropping the €30, or roughly $32 they’re asking in their Kickstarter. It’s far from being funded, so we’re not sure you’ll ever get a product, but if it does fund, shipping is expected in September.

Wanna See What The Fish Looks Like As He’s About To Eat Your Bait? Now You Can With The GoFish Cam

GoFish-Cam-image-2-672x372

It’s a good time to be an action cam, so much so that manufacturers have started exploring which realms aren’t already ripe for capture. GoPros and the like are great for recording anything that happens to you, but what if you’re really curious to see how your fish react to the bait at the end of your fishing line? The GoFish cam was designed specifically to be attached securely to a fishing line, providing you with 1080p footage of the underwater action. A tough waterproof casing allows it to go down to 150m, and infrared lights make it possible to still see what happens even in low-light conditions. The rest of the features are much like standard actions cams of today, so it’s really that underwater, line-locking ability you’ll be spending $149 for. It’s being Kickstarted at the moment, so you’ll have to wait until March of next year for yours if the fancy takes you.

Looie Lets You Pee In Peace

looie

Nothing is more frustrating than being out, needing to pee, and having nowhere to go. Cops can fine you for public urination, not to mention it’s a little gross to relieve yourself on other people’s property, so we can totally see a place for a service like Looie. It uses a location-aware app as well as a dongle to give you access to the nearest restroom that’s part of its network. Currently about to launch in Tribeca only, the founder guarantees clean facilities every time (going as far as cleaning them himself for now). It’s going to cost you $25 per month for the service, which is money well spent if you’ve found yourself in that unenviable position more often than you’d care to admit. There is no word on expansion outside of Tribeca for now, but we suspect that’s going to be highly dependant on initial demand.

Wearable Feeder Mask Lets You Get Face to Beak With Hummingbirds

Wearable Hummingbird Feeder Mask

Calling all lovers of birds! A contraption called the ‘Eye to Eye’ is now available so you can get up close and personal with hummingbirds while you feed them. It’s basically a wearable bird feeder that lets you literally come face to beak with the birds as they feed. A miniaturized feeding tube is embedded in the middle of the mask, which means the birds will be in your face while it feeds.

For $80, you’ll get two feeding tubes, two laminated inlays, and one face shield (of course you need one.) Is it worth it? Is it not? That depends on you and on the experience that you’re hoping to get out of it. You can get the ‘Eye to Eye’ mask here.

Side A’s Got the Party Mix: Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Pay homage to a part of your past and recall the awesomeness of the era of mix tapes with this cassette tape-shaped coffee table. The gigantic cassette tape sits atop custom made steel legs and is built with removable remote and bottle holders, cleverly positioned in cassette’s holes. The coolest part is probably the cassette’s label, which you can actually write on because that part is actually a white board. Neat huh?

The cassette tape coffee table was commissioned by Rob Ireland and built by Ross Langley. You can check out more photos here.

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Gets the Lego Treatment– And It Looks Awesome!

Are you excited for Ant-Man? I know I am. He’s not your typical superhero and he certainly doesn’t look it, considering he runs with ants and is roughly the size of one when he transforms. The concept was met with skepticism but a lot of folks were intrigued when the trailer was released. Now here’s another version of that trailer by Antonio Toscano, a LEGO builder extraordinaire who recreated the whole thing using nothing but LEGO bricks.

Maybe he should do the entire movie next? You can check out more of Antonio’s work here.
