Redshit Redshift Shocktop Gives You A more Comfortable Bike Ride

There’s a few things you can do to smooth out your bike ride, from outfitting your bike with shocks and springs, to a simple gel mat on the seat. Shocks and springs are kind of a no-go on road bikes, so the Redshift Shocktop will be welcomed by speed aficionados looking for less vibrations on their next ride. The Shocktop approaches the issue of bumpy rides with a bendable stem that allows the handlebars to travel up and down with every crevice you ride over, smoothing everything out. Large bumps saw a reduction of up to 70%, while the simple “road buzz” that every rider is used to is pretty much eliminated. The company offers several length stems, with different stiffness levels (thanks to twin interchangeable elastomers), so that you can adjust your experience to your liking. Installation is done in minutes and requires no special tools other than maybe a screwdriver.

It’s $109, you can pre-order it now, and expect delivery in April 2016, in time for the 2016 riding season.

Keep An Emergency Slice Of Pizza Around Your Neck


Oh, sure, this is a stupid product. It’s even sold by a store that goes by the name Stupidiotic! But hey, at least they take ownership of the stupidity of their products, and there’s something to be said about that kind of shameless confidence. The Pizza Pouch is, well, just a plastic pouch in which to store a single slice of pizza. There is a ziplock seal so the juices won’t flow out and the slice will remain… relatively fresh. And since you’ll be wearing a freakin pizza slice around your neck, you can expect to make a whole lot of friends, so you know, there’s that. It’s $8.

Cardboard Laptop For Your Cat


Let’s face it: if you have a cat, chances are he’s already wandered onto your laptop as you work, confusing your keyboard for a warm bed and interrupting your workflow. You scratch his belly, shoo him off, and try to keep working, only to watch him do it again two minutes later. Maybe he wants his own laptop? Well, that’s exactly what you’re looking at here. This cardboard laptop features a neat customizable “slide-in” screen, easily replaceable with a printed desktop image of your choosing. There’s also a scratch pad keyboard that will give your kitty a place to exercise his claws, away from your furniture and other expensive items.

Imperial Spherificator Turns Almost Any Food Into Edible Pearls


You might have heard of Spherification. It’s a trend among food lovers that involves turning common ingredients into caviar-like pearls of flavour. The process usually revolves around turning the food into mush, mixing it with Alginate (a seaweed extract), putting it into a syringe and injecting little droplets into a mixture of water and calcium chloride to create the pearls. You can then use these to flavour and accompany your foods while elevating your presentation to that of an actual chef. Well, with the Imperial Spherificator, you can do all this more easily. The device handles all the aspects of spherification for you, so that what you’re left after each batch is between 200 and 250 pearls to use in your cooking. It comes with a recipe booklet and clear instructions on how to achieve the best results each time.

It’s still doing the Kickstarter dance, so it’ll cost you a $125 pledge to own one. It comes with 100g of Alginate and 100g of Calcium Chloride, the two key ingredients.

Kira Clip-On Ring Light Will Help You Capture Angelic Selfies


Ring lights make subjects’ eyes have that ethereal glow sought after in many cosmetics advertisements. Or many advertisements, period. It’s an easy gimmick to add a little flair to any photograph, and the Kira Clip-On attachment for your phone wants to help you get that effect with your selfies. Created by Japanese photographer Julie Watai, the Kira Ring Light will be powered by AAA batteries, so it won’t drain your phone’s. The light’s intensity will also be adjustable. It currently seems to be at the prototype stage, and we have no word on pricing or availability, though the idea is that it’ll go up for crowdfunding soon.

One-Up Your FPS Foes With This Mouse/Keyboard Combo For the PS4


The PC Master Race will often cite the use of a mouse and keyboard as one of the many reasons it believes itself superior to the hordes of console gamers out there. It’s arguable whether this method is intrinsically superior to gamepads, but it’s nice to have the option.

Hori’s Tactical Assault Commander 4 is a keyboard and mouse setup for PS4 that attempts to mimic a PC control system. The means the DualShock 4’s left analog is mapped to a WASD-style configuration, while the right analog is controlled by a mouse. The rest of the DualShock’s buttons and triggers are mapped to the appropriate spots, and there are a couple of additional functions like programmable buttons, a “snipe mode” that changes mouse sensitivity and a walk button for, we assume, walking rather than running.

Assuming it works as advertised (and isn’t buggy like the Tactical Assault Commander 3 was, 4 years ago), this accessory might be worth the reported $120-$130 asking price. Launch is scheduled for October in Japan and the UK, although when exactly it’ll hit the American market isn’t clear.

Spivo Camera Pole Pivots 180 Degrees At The Touch Of A Button


Ok, so everyone is sort of tired of seeing selfie sticks, but Spivo is a little different. First off it’s not quite a selfie stick, since it has no trigger; it’s a camera pole meant to carry something like a GoPro. But unlike similar devices currently on the market, Spivo features a button that rotates the camera 180 degrees back and forth in a split-second. If you’re a fan of action footage, you’ll know that sometimes the action isn’t entered around you; it’s nice to have to option to point forwards as easily as backwards. They come in 3 lengths: 12″, 18″, and 26″, and cost $49 at any of them.
