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.

Floating Fish Dome Lets Your Fish Take A Peek Over The Surface


Have a Koi pond? Then you probably have enough money to buy this $200 Floating Fish Dome. You fill it with water, reverse it and set it on your fancy pond and it provides its inhabitants a dome of water they can swim up in, to take a look around at what’s over the surface. If you’re a fish, it’s a little like peeking inside a black hole, or into another Universe or something. But fish, well… they’re not really smart, are they? Are they going to appreciate the view? Will they even understand what a special thing it is they’re doing? We doubt it; if cats can’t be thankful for the fancy habitat you buy them and instead opt for a stupid cardboard box, what’s a fish going to get out of a plastic dome? So let’s be honest: this is for you, not your fish. This is so you can sit by your pond until a fish swims up, and then point at it while screaming at your annoyed wife to hurry up and come check it out.

It’s on Amazon, but apparently out of stock at the moment.

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver BBQ Tongs


Ok, so I’m going to admit something: I’ve never watched a single episode of Doctor Who. Not one. I know, I know, I’m an incult, a barbarian, a good for nothing, I know. But, this means I have no idea what these Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver BBQ Tongs are, or why they’re cool. I’m guessing some character in the show has them, or something like them, and now you can flip your burgers with the same type of props. Awesome.

Featuring metal tongs, a heatproof plastic handle, and storage case moulded to look just like the 11th and 12th Doctors tool of choice, theres even the iconic sonic screwdriver sound effect from the show to add some extra cool to proceedings. A must-have not just for the millions Whovians out there, but also for anyone who just wants to liven up their BBQ! Tongs measure approximately 22 1/2 long. Requires 2 x AA batteries (included).

So there you have it. For $35 you can pre-order these things, and they’ll ship in September. Just in time for some Fall grillin’.

Couchmaster Lets You Game All Day, Stay On Your Sofa


If you’ve built a sweet gaming rig, but have come to realize that sitting at your desk all day isn’t the most comfortable of propositions, you might want to start looking at options, like the Couchmaster. As long as you’re ok with playing on your TV, the Couchmaster gives you the ability to feel just as if you were on your desk but while sitting in the comfort of your sofa.

The Couchmaster comes in two main variants, Basic and Pro. The main difference between the two is that the Pro version’s desk has holes and hidden panels for cable management. There’s also an even more pro Pro version that comes with a 4-port 900mA USB 3.0 hub and a 15ft USB 3.0 extension cable. All Couchmasters come with a pair of small bags, as well as stick-on Velcro strips for attaching the wrist rests and bags.

It’s a smart product that caters to a very specific niche, but anyone in this boat will likely be delighted to find out this exists. The convenience doesn’t come cheap, however. “Nerdytec sells the Couchmaster Basic for €99 (~$110 USD), the Couchmaster Pro for €129 (~$140 USD) and the Couchmaster Pro with USB hub and extension cable for €149 (~$170 USD). If you just want the Couchmaster Pro’s desk and not the armrests, you can get that too for €79 (~$90 USD).”

Hub+ Is The Only Hub Your New MacBook Will Ever Need


The new MacBook looks great, but you pay a price for its looks. Aside from its less-than-stellar computing performance, it also comes with only one USB-C port, which can make life complicated for anyone who’s, well, normal. And even though we wrote about a port hub before, we’re much more interested in the Hub+. That’s because it’s designed to look like it belongs with your Macbook, unlike the HydraDock. Connect it to your MacBook’s only USB-C port, and instantly gain access to the following:

– 2 USB-C ports
– 1 SDXC card reader
– 1 mini DisplayPort (mDP 1.2 video output, 4k displays at 60Hz refresh rate)
– 3 USB-A \ charging ports
– Built-in lithium ion 400mAh battery to charge ANY phone

And of course you can use it to charge and power your MacBook while you’re doing stuff with all these ports, since the company includes a USB-C to USB-C cord to connect the Hub+ to your laptop. It’s a $79 pledge, with a July 2015 delivery.

The Reserve Strap Could Boost Your Apple Watch’s Battery Life


Did you know your Apple Watch has a hidden diagnostic port? Yeah, well, it does and it turns out there’s a team of engineers out there currently developing a strap that could use that port to supply the watch with extra battery life. Up to 125% more, actually. It’s called the Reserve Strap and is currently at the prototype stage. It’s not known whether Apple will be happy with a third party developer using the diagnostic port; while Apple is encouraging development of straps, going so far as to provide official guidelines, they’re expecting the straps to vary the aesthetics, rather than improve core functionality. Still, there’s very little Apple could do to prevent eventual Reserve Strap customers from accessing this port, and the company plans to provide a tool to help them flip the port’s cover. More than doubling your Apple Watch’s battery life does come at a cost, since a pre-order will set you back a cool $249, with shipping in the Fall. Yup, owning Apple’s latest gadget sure is expensive.

DestapaBanana Is A Tool For Stuffing Your Bananas


Ever felt like your banana was just too… healthy? Yeah, we thought so. So now that you’ve been having bananas stuffed with banana all your life, we’d like to open your eyes and turn your attention to the DestapaBanana. It appears to be a tool for boring a hole in a banana. You’re then free to fill that hole with other things that may not be quite as banana-y, like caramel, Nutella, Pop Rocks, peanuts… the sky is the limit.

To be honest, we’re not really sure this is a real product. The pictures look like a computer rendering, and we can’t seem to find where you can buy it. But we could be wrong, since this does seem like something that would be very popular among a certain demographic.

The Artican Is The Koozie Reinvented


Summer is upon us, and that means time in the sun with drink in hand, amirite? Nothing can ruin a lazy sunday quite as much as warm beer, so we expect koozies to be popular this year. But these drink insulators are limited in their effectiveness. The Artican is a brand new take on the koozie, featuring “2-layers of vacuum insulated steel & an ice-filled “cooling core” that screws into the bottom keeping your 12 oz. bevvies 3X colder for 3X longer—up to 3 hours in the sun actually.” The core is filled with a “proprietary freezing gel” with a high specific heat coefficient, meaning it can absorb a lot of heat before it starts to warm up, making for an effective temperature buffer. And while $20 may seem like a lot for a beer cooler, just remember the last time you sipped lukewarm lager and you might change your mind.
