Don’t Miss One Second Of TV With This Specially Shaped Mug

television-watching-beer-mug

What a time to be alive! The TV Beer Mug is a plastic mug with the top part shaved off at an angle. Why? Well, so you can still see the TV when you bring it up to your mouth to drink, of course! It’s not a problem I noticed I had, because I think my brain shuts off momentarily while I sip my beer, much like I don’t notice myself blinking; it’s just something that happens, and happens often. But not that I’ve seen this product, it makes me wonder how I lived.

Sadly it seems to be made for right-handed drinkers only, but for the sake of not missing a single millisecond of whatever it is you’re watching, you could always just suck it up and drink with the “wrong” hand. It’s $11.

Step Up Your Production Values With the Edelkrone Wing

edelkrone-Wing

There are a few simple techniques that make footage look more professional, the cinematic slide being one of the more effective ones. However, getting a nice slide going usually requires some rails to be set up, and these can be bulky to transport. A cool alternative is the Edelkrone Wing. It’s a folding double-arm system that makes it super easy to get up to 16 inches of slide, yet folds down to about 4 inches for easy transport. It’s a manual system, and the friction levels are adjustable so you can get the exact resistance and speed desired for your slide. It’s an essential tool to have for anyone who takes their photography seriously, although at $250, it’s a little too expensive for the casual user.

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.

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.

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.
