Squeaky Clean Your Child Will Be With This Yoda-Inspired Bath Towel

star-wars-childs-bath-towel-with-yoda-ears-hoodie-0

If your child runs away from you when the time comes to rub the grime off his body, perhaps a little brainwashing is in order. First, get him to fall in love with the Star Wars franchise. That should be easy enough. Then, introduce him to this awesome bath towel with Yoda ears. Done! He’ll be asking you when he can take a bath, and not the other way around.

It’s made by Etsy seller ‘MiddleBrainedCanvas’, but her page claims it’s currently sold out. However it seems she makes these to order, so you might try your luck anyway. Judging by the price of her other towels, this one should come out to about $28.

Magnet Turns Any Audio Port Into A MagSafe Port

magzet

When I was 7 years old I was given a Walkman (that should date me). On the first day of ownership, I set it down on a table, with the headphones on my head, and walked away. You can imagine what happened after. This isn’t such a huge problem now that electronic devices are drop tested and built to withstand regular freefall trips to the floor, but the idea of having a magnetic audio jack that disconnects when you tug is brilliant. It’s a lot like Apple’s MagSafe connector, only for your audio cables; plug one end into your device, while the other accepts your earbuds or headphones or anything you use to listen, and disconnects when pulled hard. More importantly, the makers have thought about making it possible to leave the MAGjack in (that’s the side that plugs into your device) without your phone thinking you have something plugged, so the sound isn’t routed to your earphones unless they’re actually plugged in. In this fashion, you don’t have any “installation” to do when you want to listen, you just have to snap the two halves together and you’re good to go. It’s pretty nifty, and it’s also cheap at $35, which gives you one MAGcap (the part that plugs into your earbuds) and two MAGjacks.

What Envy? This Giant Lens Attaches To Your iPhone 6

Super-Spy-Ultra-High-Power-Zoom-Telescope-with-Tripod-01

Spying on your neighbours… Isn’t that America’s favourite past-time? You could try to be inconspicuous about it and just peek through your blinds like a normal person. But this is America, and if you’re gonna go, go big. That’s why we’re digging the Super Spy Ultra High Power Zoom 80X Telescope. It’s meant to be used with an iPhone 6, and will provide you with an eye-opening 80X zoom. That’s enough to make out faces from 100m away! It comes with a tripod, which lets you adjust height and pivot the entire ridiculous contraption 360 degrees. And it can also be used without a tripod, although that’s pretty obvious. There’s a cloth carrying case, since the 395mm long telescope does collapse down to a more portable size. And unlike the similar looking dSLR telephoto lenses that cost 5 figures, the Super Spy Ultra High Power Zoom 80X Telescope costs only $220. That’s some serious spying on the cheap.

Ok, look, no… we’re not going to condone looking through people’s windows and stuff, because that’s probably not legal. We’re not sure. So, uh, look at birds and stuff, ok?

Wonder Cube Is A Swiss Army Knife Of Smartphone Accessories

WonderCube-image-1-672x372

You’re looking at a 1 inch cube that packs a bunch of different tools for your smartphone. Here is a sampling:

Phone charger. Through the flip-out USB and either micro-USB or Lightning connectors, you can connect your phone to the mains and get it charged.
MicroSD Card Reader. A built-in card reader means you can add up to 64GB of storage on the go.
Phone Stand.A micro-suction cup plate lets you stick it to the back of your phone and props it up at an angle for your viewing pleasure.
Sync.The same connectors that you use to charge can be used to sync.
Emergency charger.If you’re nowhere near an outlet, you can just pick up a 9V battery and use this to give yourself up to 3.5h of extra talk time.
LED Torch. Use it to light your way with its built-in LED torch.

The thing is splash-proof and is meant to be taken with you everywhere. Considering how much functionality it packs, it’s hard not to recommend it. Better yet, at $49, it’s really not expensive. The campaign is fully-funded and shipping should start in August.

Blue Freedom Is A Portable Hydro Power Plant

Blue-Freedom-Hydropower-Plant

Going off grid always requires some planning, and fortunately there are lots of accessories to help you keep your gadgets powered in those situations. The various offerings range from hydrogen fuel cells, to solar chargers, and now you can add hydro power to the list. The Blue Freedom device is a small power-generating turbine that you place in a nearby stream. As the water flows through the impeller, it generates enough power to charge its own 5,000 mAh battery, with which you can then power your electronics. 1 hour in a stream generates enough electricity to power your phone for 10h. At least these are the numbers the company is providing, though we suppose that’s an approximation. In any case, it’s a cool product and a $179 pledge will get you one with delivery in October of this year.

Windbreaking Foam Balls Keep Your Phone Conversations On The Quieter Side

windblocker-1

As sophisticated as modern smartphone noise cancellation algorithms are, they still struggle against the havoc wind can cause on your phone conversations. So someone thought it would be a good idea to design these Windblocker foam balls, which are designed to prevent wind from getting into your phone’s mic and disrupting your calls. Sure, it kind of looks like a clown costume for your phone… but if you have a really important call to make, outside, it wouldn’t hurt to carry one of them in a pocket, strange looks be damned. They have a little clip that lets them easily be put on or taken off your device and while pricing info hasn’t been revealed just yet, we would be shocked if you were expected to pay anything more than $5-$10 for them.

Keep Your Shoes Clean With The Shifter Boot Protector

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 11.47.37 AM

Riding season is upon us, which is hard to believe considering the gargantuan amounts of snow currently on the ground. But it is, and that means you’ll have to once again start making choices about what to wear on your motorcycle. If you haven’t adopted specialized riding shoes, you might be familiar with the issue of having to pick footwear that you don’t mind getting a little dirty or scuffed where they contact the clutch lever. That concern might have limited your options before, but if you get the Shifter Boot Protector, you can just slip it over your shoe and wear any fancy boots you like without damaging them at all. It’s elastic so it will fit over any size boot and costs all of $8.

Yeti Colster Keeps Your Beers Colder Than Any Koozie Ever Could

yeti-colster-1

Cold beer tastes great as long as it’s cold. There are foam Koozies designed to help keep the heat away from your bottle and extend your low-temp taste window, but let’s face it, they sort of suck. Enter the Yeti Colster, an insulating container that accepts a standard beer bottle. Featuring double-walled vacuum insulation, and a rubber ThermoLock™ Gasket that locks in the cold, the Colster is able to keep that beer frosty for hours on end. The “no-sweat” design keeps your fingers dry and un-frostbit so you can keep on high-fiving your bros with impunity all night (or whatever it is you do when you drink beer).

And ok, yeah, at $30, it’s pretty damn expensive. But if you’re the beer-by-the-beach kind of person, it might be an investment worth considering.
