3 Smart Light Bulbs That Are As Awesome As (But Cheaper Than) the Philips Hue

Smart LED Bulbs

The Birdie Can Make Your GoPro Fly

birdie-1

Think of the Birdie as a shuttlecock for your GoPro. What’s a shuttlecock? It’s that thing you hit when you play badminton. The idea here is that you stuff you GoPro inside the Birdie, and you then launch it up in the air as high as you can. The cone-shaped tail will straighten its flight path and slow its descent back down to earth. Meanwhile, a hole in the carrying receptacle allows your GoPro to shoot presumably more interesting footage than if you’d just held it at the end of a selfie stick. You’ll still have to make sure your GoPro is properly housed in a protective case, but the Birdie does float at least, and the whole thing disassembles after you’re done throwing it around. It’s $59.

The Selfie Bottle Is A Sign Of The Times

coca-cola-selfie-bottle

That headline sounds sort of ominous, but it’s really just meant to be a passing commentary about how we’re not surprised to come across something like the Selfie Bottle in an age where the selfie is so ubiquitous. The product is a smart concoction from Israeli advertising agency Gefen Team, and look, here we are talking about it so it works! It’s designed to attach to a 0.5L Coca-Cola bottle and automatically snap a selfie every time you tilt the bottle past 70 degrees. The picture is then presumably automatically uploaded to social media sites to share your ecstatic mug with the world. Now don’t think this is something you’ll be able to buy somewhere; it was designed specifically for the Summer Love Event, some sort of community event organized or at the very least sponsored by Coke.

Sunflower Home Awareness System Is The Future Of Home Security

sunflower-home-awareness-system

If you live in the kind of property that Mr. Burns might’ve lived in, you might be in the market for a serious security system. Well, it doesn’t get much more impressive than the Sunflower Home Awareness System. Why? Because it comes with its own autonomous drone. That’s right, if something triggers the alarm, you’ll immediately be notified on your smartphone and you’re then free to deploy the drone. It will fly around your property and send back a live feed, so that you can see whether you’re dealing with possible intruders, or if it’s just the neighbour’s dog who wandered into your yard again. A set of ‘Smart Lights’ that you place around the yard serve as motion sensors, as well as pleasant illumination.

Pricing or availability hasn’t been announced yet, but you can pay $25 to reserve yours today.

Poke Ball Serving Bowl Set

jgpo_poke_ball_serving_bowl_set

Pokemon is all the rage these days, but will it still be relevant in a few months? Is the rage even as ragey as it was when it was first released? We can’t answer those questions, we don’t know, but we do wonder if you’ll still be as infatuated with this Poke Bowl Serving Set once you’re done catching pocket monsters.

The Poké Ball Serving Bowls come with two dishwasher safe halves of the classic ball used in the Poké-verse. The red top and white bottom can slot together and will equal the approximate size of a volleyball. Sure, that is more than adequate space for your pet hamster to roll around in while you pretend it’s a Pokémon, but that might count as hamster abuse so don’t do it. Instead, fill it with tasty snacks. Preferably the cheesy variety.

Tee hee… hamsters are funny. Anyway, if you want your own Pokemon-themed serving set, you’ll have to spend all of $20.
