The Whisker Dam Protects Your ‘Stache From Dipping Into Your Suds

whisker-dam-7

It’s the little inventions that get us excited. Tiny doodads that can make a world of difference in some settings. Take the Whisker Dam for instance. It’s a metal object whose only purpose is to keep your moustache dry while you drink beer. This is a problem any self-respecting moustachioed man will know about: suds-infused hairs following a good sip of a properly poured beer. Well, the Whisker Dam attaches to almost any drinking vessel and creates a smaller opening through which your beer can flow, but which keeps your face adornments nice and dry.

The Whisker Dam is an easy to use solution for guarding your stache’ from the indulgent beverages one may consume. When it comes to moustache guards you will not find a more premium product. Made from 100% Copper, dressed with a timeless patina and coated with a non-toxic barrier, the Whisker Dam has been handcrafted to perfection.

Granted, you may also miss out on the head itself, which beer aficionados will tsk-tsk you for, but if all you want is to get some liquid cereal down your gullet without making a mess of your facial hair, we totally dig the $20 purchase.

Shoulder Bag With Pop-Up Tablet Holder

bagtab2k-005

We thought the whole point of tablets is that you could easily hold them in your hands and wouldn’t need, you know, a lap to put them down on. Still, their portability doesn’t seem to be enough to discourage accessory makers from giving you the option of hands-free operation and we suppose that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Thanko’s got this Shoulder Bag With Pop-up Tablet Holder that ingeniously transforms from a bag, into a specially angled tablet holder. Just unzip, flip and enjoy using your tablet at hip level, while retaining full usage of both hands to do anything you want.

It’s 4,980 yen, or roughly $42.

Anyone who has tried to dial or type with freezing fingers knows that the task is futile, or extremely time-consuming at best.

The Klatz is currently up for funding on Indiegogo, where a minimum pledge of $99 will get you one of your very own.

World’s Thinnest Case Preserves The iPhone 6’s Unnecessary Thinness

Air-Skin-iPhone-6-case-from-Spigen-4

Apple could have made the iPhone 6 about a millimeter thicker and no one would have noticed. Instead, they made them this thin, and a camera sticks out the back like a sore thumb. On your back. Bravo, Apple, bravo. But regardless of how you feel about this potentially boneheaded decision, you might still want to keep your phone protected while taking advantage of the appreciated, but totally unnecessary, thinness. To this end, take a look at this case from Spigen. Made from polycarbonate and a discoloration-preventing urethane coating, this case is only 0.4mm thick. Less than half a millimiter! We wouldn’t write about cases normally, but a case this thin deserves at least a passing mention. It’s $25 for either model, and comes in five different hues.

Whisky Wedge Perfects The Drinking Experience

whiskey_wedge_1

When drinking whisky, you want to chill your liquor as much as possible, while diluting it as little as possible. There are many ways to accomplish this, from using chilled metal pucks to shaping your ice into a giant ball. You can now add the Whisky Wedge to that list. It’s a combination tumbler and silicone mold that shape your ice into a wedge that perfectly fits the glass. This way your liquor rests against an inclined surface of ice, but not more, preventing the melting of too large a volume of water and the diluting of your drink. It also looks kind of slick. It’s $15 and comes with the glass and the mold.
