GloveBucket Lets You Do Messy Jobs Without Getting Messy Yourself

glovebucket

There are times when you need to do something potentially messy, but can’t quite afford to get dirty yourself. Say you have a classroom full of students that would love to play around with some dirt in biology class, but are all wearing clean clothes. Or you just finished painting and want to clean the brushes. The GloveBucket is a “5-gallon (19-liter) high-density polyethylene bucket, with a removable transparent acrylic lid. The bucket has round holes in two of its sides, which a pair of included heavy-duty rubber gloves extend through from the outside – the gloves seal around the holes.” You just need to insert your hands into the bucket and play around with whatever it is inside, while staying perfectly clean on the outside. It’s $49.

The Grillbot Is A Grill Cleaning Robot

grillbot

iRobot may disapprove of this usage of their trademark, but we don’t care and we’ll just say it: there’s a Roomba for everything these days. The Grillbot, although not at all associated with iRobot or the Roomba, performs much the same task that the carpet cleaning bot does, only on your BBQ. Equipped with a set of rotating bristle brushes, the single-button operated machine gets to work on caked on grease and grime, taking the grunt work out of your summer feasts. Or at least, some of the gruntwork. After a few minutes of driving around randomly, the grill will be clean and ready to barbeque another day.

Expected to hit the market in mid-June, the Grillbots will cost $70 for the base model and $100 for a premium version which will have unspecified extras.

So It’s Come To This: A Roomba For Cleaning Your Smart Devices’ Screens

atomee-s-2-590x421

Did you ever think you’d see the day we got lazy enough, as a species, to invent a tiny robot whose only task it is to clean the surfaces of our smartphones and tablets? Because, what, wiping is too hard now? Don’t get us wrong, we think the AutoMee S is pretty awesome, but only in a “look at that cute thing moving about on my iPad” sort of way. And we suspect that it’s been created precisely because of its cuteness, especially considering it’s being launched in the Japanese market by Takara Tomy. And we all know Japan likes its kawaii. The AutoMee S measures “67 × 73 × 38mm, weighs 82 grams and is powered by a single AA battery which is good for three hours of cleaning.” It takes 4 minutes to clean an average smartphone and twice as long for a tablet. Like a Roomba, it has edge sensors to prevent it falling off the device, and is programmed to move in random patterns, eventually covering every bit of the surface in its allotted time.

It’s going to hit the market on March 28, in Japan, for 1575 Yen ($ 17) a piece.

Space Efficient: Laundry Caddy

That image is doing our work for us. It’s a laundry caddy. Small enough to nestle between the washer and dryer, it’s the perfect place to keep your detergents and other… things that people who aren’t sloths use in their homes to keep stuff clean. I… I just call the laundry service and they pick my clothes up, clean then, fold them, and deliver them back to me. It’s a good service, albeit a little unnecessary, but the guilt I feel every time is equaled only by my unwillingness to actually do any house work.

I’ll probably grow up one day, and when I do, I’ll think about spending $50 on the Laundry Caddy.

The shUVee Shoe Deodorizer Zaps The Bacteria Feasting On Your Feet, Now Living In Your Shoes

By David Ponce

Right up there with other cultural faux-pas like loudly belching at dinner with friends, passing gas in a restaurant and spitting a fat loogie on a first date, is taking your shoes off and inducing nausea in your hosts. Of course cleaning your feet and regularly changing socks goes a long way to preventing that, but if you show up with your running shoes for some reason, there’s a chance they’ve become a microbial condo. A bacterial retirement home, as it were, harbouring microscopic malodorants of various kinds. Take care of things with the shUVee Shoe Deodorizer. It uses the power of ultraviolet light to kill as much as 95% of the eco-system inside your shoes. Just hang ‘em up there for a good hour, and you should be good to go.

For $99, it beats getting a new pair of kicks.
