Elegantly Designed Portable Grill

Grillo2

The Grillo from FormAxiom is beautiful. At least, we think so. It’s a portable grill that uses a chainmail “fire hammock” to hold your burning coal or wood.

[Grillo uses a] flexible stainless-steel ring-mesh construction which is safe for any kind of solid fuel. The breathable texture allows for the fire to be ignited from underneath and can achieve a strong heat in a short amount of time. The surrounding tripod structure stays cool to touch.

With its slender folded form, the Grillo has numerous advantages over conventional barbecues. Not only is it easier to carry and store, but is even easier to clean. Simply hold the folded structure together, dip the cooking surface in water and scrub with a common cleaning brush.

Now comes the bad news. We don’t think you can buy Grillo. The website is from 2014, where the company invites you check out their prototypes at some exhibition in Italy. As a matter of fact, this grill made the rounds on the Internet back then, and a quick search today doesn’t reveal any way to actually purchase it. Which is a shame, really.

SALT, The Pepper Spray Gun

salt-self-defense-gun-22918

Whichever side of the gun ownership debate you stand on, it would be hard to argue against the fact that not every dangerous situation needs to be resolved in a lethal manner. Whether it’s drunk neighbours trying to enter the wrong house, unarmed robbers trying to get into your car, or shitfaced hooligans looking for a fight, these are situations you might want to deal with proportionally and not lethally. The SALT Pepper Spray gun is loaded with rounds filled with a powdered pepper spray that creates a chemical cloud upon impact, incapacitating anyone in the vicinity. With a range of 150 feet, compared to a traditional pepper spray’s 6 foot range, the SALT lets you maintain a safe distance between yourself and your threat. With a muzzle velocity of 320 feet per second, even without the chemical irritant, the impact from each round is like being hit with a 50mph fastball. A 7 round magazine lets you fire several shots in quick succession, overwhelming your subject with a painful barrage that is sure to make them turn around in no time, and leaving you free of the hassle of undergoing an investigation for your use of a firearm. It’s $389, and each self-defense kit comes with 1 pepper spray gun, 10 pepper spray rounds, 10 practice rounds, 1 magazine (7-round), 2 co2 cylinders, 1 lockable case (lock not included), 1 easy to follow user manual.

OhGizmo! Review: The Zus Kevlar Charging Cable

features-01_copy_ongydb

We reviewed the Zus Car Charger and Car Locator a while ago and came away impressed with its design and functionality. We thought it had accomplished something pretty impressive by redesigning and improving on a seemingly banal piece of tech. And they’re now done the same with yet another commodity: the charging cable. We’ve been playing with the Zus Kevlar Charging Cable for the last couple of weeks, and we simply don’t see ourselves going back to Apple’s touch-it-and-break-it cables.

anatony-zus-kevlar-cable

The Zus offering’s claim to fame is that it’s built like a tank. It’s reinforced with Kevlar, which is the same material you find in bulletproof vests. The company claims it can pull a car, and resist the normally irresistible force of a cat’s cable-chewing addiction; we believe them. The cable also features a 90 degree plug, which helps it get into tight spaces, like a cramped car’s cigarette lighter socket receptacle. In third-party testing, the Zus Kevlar Cable was bent 15,000 times, which is 50% more than Belkin’s, its closest competitor.

We have no trouble believing any of these claims. The cable definitely feel solid in your hands. It’s not supple and feels rather sturdy, staying bent at the angle you select. The nylon braiding is a nice touch and give its a premium feel. Even the packaging it comes in has obviously been designed with care and attention to detail.

The most impressive thing about the Zus Kevlar Cable is that it’s just $19. It’s on pre-order now, with shipping in mid-July.

STEPDive Is A Snorkel That Turns Into A Kind Of SCUBA Device

STEPDive-snorkel-system-1

The difference between snorkelling and SCUBA diving is like night and day. Snorkelling can be done by inexperienced tourists on an island hopping trip, by clumsy grandmas looking for adventure, and even by young kids. SCUBA diving on the other hand requires heavy equipment, some formal training, and some degree of physical ability. The STEPDive system hopes to provide its users a taste of real diving, with the ease of snorkelling. The system is simple: it’s a snorkel attached to a 5 meter long hose, whose open end stays on the surface thanks to a floating buoy. 5 meters is a decent depth to explore and opens a ton of possibilities not normally available to casual snorkelers, without subjecting them to the rigours of learning SCUBA. The issue? Well… it’s kind of expensive, costing an eye-watering €430 ($457USD) super early bird pricing, and going up to €613 ($678USD) Early Bird and €700 ($774USD) (!) regular retail price. And the campaign funding its production is far from having reached its goal. Despite that, we think it’s a great product and we’re kind of hoping some enthusiasts will jump in.
