Wallet Drone Fits In Its Controller, Which Fits In Your Pocket

Walletr-drone_2

Drones are getting smaller and smaller. Right now you’re looking at the Wallet Drone, which is small enough to fit inside its own controller, which itself is small enough to fit in a pocket, albeit a little snugly. The rest is pretty standard drone fare, which means it’ll fly for 5-7 minutes, do flips on command, and charge back up in 20 minutes. The fun part is the controller itself has a battery which can charge the drone, so you don’t have to make a trip back home to get it going again. There are even some bright LEDs for night flight. All this in a $40 package seems like a winning proposition. It’s a fully funded crowdfunding campaign, so delivery should happen in July of this year. Super early Christmas gift?

Single-Serve Coffee Pods Are So Yesterday. Meet Genie, The Single Serve Food Pod Machine

genie-cooker-1

Most people who buy a Keurig machine love it: it makes coffee, hot chocolate, and even tea in less than a minute, with barely any maintenance and fussing around. So it stands to reason that the same principle could be equally successful if instead of liquids, a similar machine would be able to handle foods. Well that’s exactly what the Genie claims to be able to do. “Ayelet Carasso and Doron Marco are the Israeli entrepreneurs behind the device”, and they claim that all you have to do to get a hot meal is pop a pod of freeze dried foodstuffs in the machine, press a button and wait a minute. The Genie then… does its magic and spits out complex things like muffins, chicken and rice, and chocolate soufflé. The inner workings of the machine are a bit of a secret, so we’re not sure how it does what it does, but the pictures of the resulting foods look promising. The food in the pods have a shelf life of 1 to 2 years, and can be tweaked for those with dietary requirements.

It’ll cost a few hundred dollars when it’s released in Israel in the coming months, with a wider roll-out planned for later if successful there. The food pods will cost about as much as a similar, non-pod meal would normally cost.

Here’s Something Fun You Can 3D Print

dremel-devil-1

Buying a 3D printer is all fun and games until you realize you’re running out of fun things to print. Now and then, however, we see something cool, like this Dremel Devil. It’s a plastic fan inside a cylinder, and it’s meant to be launched off a Dremel rotary tool. If done right, you’ll see this little toy soar up to 200 feet up in the air.

It’ll require a little bit of trial and error to figure out just how much pressure to use when inserting the Dremel Devil in the adapter, but a small learning curve shouldn’t keep anyone from having fun with this for at least a day or two. The file is free on the Thingiverse.

Minimalistic Playing Cards

minimal-playing-cards-1

Ever ask yourself why it’s necessary for playing cards to be covered in ornamental drawings? If you really think about it, a typical set of cards is pretty gaudy; we understand there’s a strong connection to royalty and the like, but how necessary is it? Joe Doucet designed the above set, and it’s called Minim. It came about by wondering just how many design elements could be taken away from a regular deck of cards, while still retaining full functionality. The result is the above, where each suit is represented by a simple geometric shape, and the back of the card is marked with a single diagonal line. It’s a clean and elegant design, and we’d be happy to play with them, if only they were available… The $10 set is apparently sold out, and we have no idea when they’ll get more.

Go From Scrawny To Brawny In Seconds With These Muscle Suits

muscle-suit-1

Spending hours at the gym is for chumps. If you want to look ripped, at least at first glance, pumping iron isn’t the most efficient way to go. No, these muscle suits from Flex Design Constumes will get you looking like a Greek God in the time it takes to put them on, and that’s the kind of efficiency we can get behind. Hand-made and airbrushed for a natural look and feel, these suits come in various, uh, sizes: lean, standard, super, giant, and mega muscle suits. If ‘mega’ isn’t beefy enough, you can apparently ask for a custom build that might push you up to ridiculous proportions; maybe you’re going for that Incredible Hulk look… There’s an option to add veins, for even more realism. But of course, when it comes to quality hand-made items, you’re going to pay a premium. The Lean Muscle Suit starts at $919, and prices go way up from there, to $3,499 for the “Mega” suit. For that amount of money you could probably get some psychotherapy to help you figure out why you would want to spend $3,500 on a fake muscle suit, but hey, we don’t judge.

Miito Liquid Heater Is A Little Convoluted, Intriguing Nonetheless

miito-2

If you want to heat up some water for tea or whatever, you’ve got quite a few options. From zapping it in the microwave, to putting it in an electric kettle, not to speak of a simple pot on the stovetop. Well, now you could add Miito to the mix, which is a strange device that uses a heating rod and electromagnetic induction to get your liquids up to temp. You just place the liquid you need in a non-ferrous container (glass, for instance), place the heating rod inside, and press a button. An electromagnetic current will heat the rod, which in turn will get a 200ml cup of water to a boil in as little as 60 seconds. There’s very little waste since you’re only heating the water you need, and it works with any liquid like soups, or milk.

We’re not sure it’s entirely worth the $101 (90 Euros) asking price, considering a similarly priced microwave will get you the same results. But if you think of it as a talking piece, perhaps it’s not that bad.
