The SeatRack Gives You A Cargo Rack Inside Your Car

seatrack_interior_cargo_rack_6

You go to Home Depot and maybe you get a little carried away: you buy some large item and suddenly have no practical way to carry it home. Sure, you can drop some seatbacks and have it awkwardly stick out your trunk. Maybe you tie a little flag on it to warn other motorists of the danger. Or you get the SeatRack and conveniently fit your large item right inside your car. It replaces your seat’s headrests with hard horizontal bars that come with straps. So just slide that lumber, surfboard, or oversized piping right in, strap it down and go home like you’re driving a pickup. It’s $130.

Foldio360 Turntable Makes It Easy to Take 360 Degree Product Shots

foldio360-photo-turntable-4

If you’re running a little online shop, getting good images of the products you sell is pretty important. To make the task easier, Foldio already sells a lightbox called Foldio Studio and now they’re adding another item to their lineup: the Foldio360. It’s a turntable that accepts objects up to 5 kg (11 lb) in weight, and rotates them slowly so you can photograph them from every side. To blur the line between the bottom of the table and the lightbox, it features a light at the back. It can trigger your iPhone camera through Bluetooth, and nicer dSLRs through IR. “Photographs can then be compiled into interactive 360 degree images using the app and the Foldio360 Online service. From there they can be embedded into websites and exported as GIFs or MP4s.” It’s doing the Kickstarter dance at the moment, with an $89 pledge ($139 with the lightbox) to secure yours with a July shipping date.

The Trac-Grabber Sets Your Car Free

trac-grabber

Winter is allegedly upon us. Looking around, it sure doesn’t look that way… but we wouldn’t bet on Global Warming to deprive us of a snowy winter; we think it’s just a matter of time until you have to deal with slippery, nearly impassable roads. If you want to put all the chances on your side and never get stuck, you might want to carry a pair of Trac-Grabbers. They’re simple blocks of what looks like rubber that easily attach around your tire and give you the grip you might be lacking to extract yourself from a snow bank. There are tons of products like this on the market, but we like how simple these look and how easy to attach they appear to be. Best part is they’re only $49.

NeoNode AirBar Turns Any Laptop Into A Touchscreen Laptop

Airbar-1-800x420

I get a little fidgety when anyone gets their fingers close to my laptop’s screen. But that’s maybe because I’m lazy or old school; I just don’t like the idea of having to wipe my screen down. The reality however is that more and more laptops do come with a touch sensitive screen, and newer operating systems like Windows 10 are built to take advantage of this. If your laptop isn’t enabled, you don’t have to get a new one. NeoNode’s AirBar is a thin stick that sits beneath your screen and attaches magnetically. It projects an invisible light on your screen, which allows it to track your tactile inputs. It simply plugs into a USB port and doesn’t require any installation. However it’ll work better with Windows and ChromeOS, with limited functionality on OS X. And it only works on 15.6 inch screens. Still, at $49, it’s an inexpensive way to add some functionality to your potentially aging laptop. It’s available next month.

LEVIT8 Is An Origami-style Stand That Elevates Your Laptop

LEVIT8-1

Standing desks are expensive, but a lot of people see health benefits in doing at least part of their work on their feet. The LEVIT8 board folds into an elevated stand that’s just tall enough to bring your laptop to a comfortable height for working standing up. When you’re done using it, you can simply unfold it using a twist-and-fold technique, and it packs flat as a magazine, easily going into your laptop bag along with the computer. It is made of a single loop of 8 triangular panels which gives it its easily collapsible box-spiral folding mechanism. It’s water repellent and stain resistant, and can hold up to 20 times its own weight. Coming in three sizes to suit all your needs, the LEVIT8 will cost you a pledge of $32, in any size.

These Are Darth Vader’s Oven Mitts

darth-vader-oven-mitt-1

Well… no, they’re not. Because let’s face it, Darth Vader wouldn’t be cooking now, would he? But if you want to stick your hands in a hot oven, we bet you won’t be able to use The Force so you’re going to need these silicon oven mitts made to look like Vader’s gloves; there’s even the Imperial Logo on the palm. Unfortunately, it seems it’s for right handed individuals only, but we suppose that for grabbing things out of the oven, lefties can manage with their non-dominant hand. It’s $15.

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

pizza-pouch

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.
