The NodPod Lets You Sleep More Naturally, Brings You Stares

head-hammock-1

Do you value not looking stupid? Then please ignore anything about the NodPod. If you’ve got thicker skin than an elephant though, you stand a chance at being able to sleep comfortably just about anywhere. The NodPod is like a hammock for your face, attaching to a headrest and providing your chin with a soft resting place. It keeps your head upright, preventing it from dropping forward as you nod off. It’s a more natural angle for your neck, and might even work better than a lot of the popular travel pillows you can pick up at the airport’s overpriced shops. Plus, the cord is designed so it doesn’t cover the screen of the person behind you, should you care about such things. Other features include a velcro pocket within which to keep the cords, and a water repellant PU coated fabric to make it easy to clean for the droolers among you. There’s even a safety breakaway feature that detaches the cord if there’s a sudden pressure or impact, preventing you from getting strangled in case of an accident.

It’s a brilliant little travel companion, and at $32 is priced just right.

Pokemon Pokeball Weed Grinder

pokeweed

So this looks like the sort of item you better buy now, because we can hear the lawyers writing their Cease & Desist letters already. It’s a Pokeball, but you won’t catch any pocket monster with it. Instead, you’ll use it to grind up your fine botanicals and put yourself in the mood to spend all day playing that game. It’s not as if you’re not already doing that, of course, but you know… you might as well take it to an extreme and Pokemon errthing.

It’s $22.

Carry-On Bag Hitch Lets You Roam Airport Terminals Hands-Free

my-hitch-man-walking

It’s not enough to have to endure the indignities of modern air travel: once you’ve passed all the security measures, you’re then forced to travel on foot through vast terminals with only one usable hand, since the other will usually be pulling a carry-on bag. But with the MyHitch, you’ve just doubled your productivity. Invented by an airline pilot, the hitch ties to your belt or tight waistband and makes it possible to pull your bag with your butt. Gone are the days where you have to choose between holding a coffee or carrying a loud phone conversation, with the My Hitch you can multi-task. It’s $18 and available now.

The Tab LapDesk Lets You Work, Multitask, Anywhere

lapdesk-1

Let’s face it, these days no one just focuses on one task without interruption. We all have our smartphones or tablets nearby, periodically interrupting our potentially important work with updates about the neighbour’s cat. If you’re on the go, it may be harder to find a surface large enough to accommodate your papers and your device simultaneously. The Tab LapDesk features a slot on one side where you can angle your device and keep an eye on questionably important updates, while still having enough area to get actual work done. It’s made from bamboo, and costs $59.

Retrofit A Backup Camera With The Pearl RearVision

Pearl-RearVision-Backup-Camera

You car didn’t come with a backup camera, but you’ve bumped into enough luxury sedans while parking that you’ve determined you should totally have gotten that option? It’s not too late to get your own, and with the Pearl RearVision Backup Camera, you can do so elegantly. Integrated into a nicely designed license plate holder, the camera will stream wirelessly to your smart device, you so can easily keep an things. The best part is the ease of installation; the RearVision is battery-powered and charged through a little solar panel integrated on the bottom bezel. That means no wiring, drilling, or modifications needed on your ride. A car adapter then plugs into your OBD port, and serves as a link between the camera and your phone. The only downside is the hefty $499 price tag. But if it stops you from damaging your bumper even once, we say it’s worth it.

Overengineered Much? The Svørn Arcus Is The “Lamborghini Of Carabiners”

SVØRN-Arcus-Carabiner-Featured-image-672x372

Are you into carabiners? Like, really into carabiners? Then, boy, do we have the carabiner for you. The Svørn Arcus is an admittedly novel looking carabiner made from a type of Zinc alloy, making it pretty light (40g) and supposedly quite strong. Not strong enough to go mountain climbing, mind you. The company specifies it’s meant to carry keys only. And that’s fine, we suppose. It’s finished in a type of coating called Chrome Noir, and will set your bank account a very questionable $40. That’s a lot of dollars for a carabiner, but then again, we like to write about items that are grossly overpriced.
