BeeLine Changes The Way We Use Navigation On Bicycles


Normally on a bike, you have a few options to find your way to your destination. Either you use your head and just, you know, go there. Or, you use a GPS device of some kind that will feed you turn by turn directions, telling you exactly where to go. It’ll get you there, sure, but it also takes away one of the most important features of being on a bike: the freedom to go anywhere you want. BeeLine approaches this differently: it still uses GPS to know where it is, but it just points you in the direction of your destination and tells you how far you still are. Which route you take is entirely up to you. As long as your distance keeps getting smaller, you know you’re headed the right way, but you’re free to do so while exploring the city at your leisure. It’s also safer, since you won’t feel pressured into taking turns at intersections that don’t feel right for you. It sits on your handlebar, unobtrusively, and consumes so little power that you’ll be able to go months between charges. Through the app you can set your destination, add waypoints, and it is smartly designed to automatically add a waypoint if your route takes you across a must-use route, like a bridge.

It’s a cool device, and will cost you around $60 as a pledge to get yours, with delivery in August 2016.

The Nemo Special Ops Drill Would Look Great In James Bond’s Toolset


We’re not sure why a company would sell a drill “for special forces” to the regular public, but we suspect it’s just a marketing gimmick. It’s a nice one, to boot, since we’re definitely intrigued by this all-black drill that also works underwater up to 100m.

The Nemo SPECIAL OPS (SO24-6Li-100) is catered to professionals working in special operations and the special forces. With a depth rating of up to 100m (328ft), this drill has a salt-water resistant ALL-BLACK paint job with no logo for maximum concealment. Its 1000-watt brushless technology ensures maximum efficiency and durability. It comes with a durable carrying case, battery charger, pressure valve and pump to pressurize the drill, and two 6Ah batteries, to make sure you’re ready for jobs that require extra power and time. The Nemo SPECIAL-OPS comes with additional accessories geared towards the tasks carried out by special forces.
Nemo SPECIAL OPS accessories include a diving headlamp, a diving tool belt with tool bag, and a handy waterproof bag to keep your battery charger dry.

It’s not like we’re about to go don a wetsuit and drill something underwater, but it’s nice to know that if the fancy took us, we could. Well, no… we couldn’t… because the thing costs an astronomical $1,720 and is currently out of stock.

Windcatcher Airpad 2 Air Mattress Amplifies Your Breath, Inflates In Seconds


Going camping with an air mattress can be a bit of a luxury, since it does usually require you to also carry a pump of some kind. The Windcatcher Airpad 2 mattress on the other hand seems to have developed a system that allows you to inflate it using nothing but the power of your breath. As you blow into it, their special valve allows for the surrounding air to also enter, amplifying the power of your breath tenfold. In this matter, the mattress can be inflated in seconds without using pumps. The valve never touches the ground, and you never have to put your mouth against anything that might have been into contact with the soil. Since the valve is so large, deflation is super easy, and makes packing up and leaving a breeze. You really have to watch the video below to realize how well this works.

It’s a fantastic looking product, and it costs only $100. For this price you also get a 4 INCH THICK QUILTED support system for superior cushioning and comfort.

Wildcard is A Slim Multitool With A Detachable Blade


Multitools on Kickstarter are just like wallets on Kickstarter: there are way too many! But every now and then one comes around that adds a little innovative twist and stands out. The Wildcard is yet another multitool stamped out of solid stainless steel, except this one features a fold-out serrated edge blade. Better yet, the blade is detachable so if you forget you’re carrying it at the airport, you can just surrender the blade and order a replacement, instead of having to ditch the whole thing. It’s also got a screwdriver, a prybar, and a bottle opener. The whole thing measures just 2mm thick and is credit card sized, so it’ll fit in your wallet easily. It’s a smart design, and definitely worth the $25 pledge necessary to secure one.

Snorkelling Takes On Another Dimension With An Underwater Jetpack


There are many things to explore on this planet, but most of them require some kind of physical effort. Like snorkelling, for instance. It’s all great fishing fun until you realize if you want to see anything at all, you will have to kick your finned feet around quite a bit. That’s an effort that can be avoided altogether if you strap the x2 Sport Underwater Jetpack to your back and wrists. Simply by pointing your fists in the direction you want to go, you’ll be able to travel up to 10kph (6mph) underwater for up to 60 minutes at a time. The propellers attach to your wrists, and are controlled through a handheld remote. The entire system weighs 5kp (11lbs) and will unfortunately set you back a hefty $2,000 as an early adopter. Yes, that does mean it’s a crowdfunding campaign that’s not even fully funded at the moment. And it does mean that you’ll have to wait until September 2016 until you get your own x2.

The Jammock Hammock Means You Can Nap Anywhere


Did you know you could take a nap on top of your Jeep? Well, if you get the Jammock Hammock, you can. It fits Jeep Wranglers 1987 to present in the YJ, TJ, JK, and JKU models. It also will fit the bed of just about any pickup truck, where it’ll provide a bit of protection to your valuables, on top of giving you a soft area on which to lay down and sleep. It’s made from 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon and will easily withstand more than 350lbs, but the company won’t commit to a higher number for fear of lawsuits. Still, it’s a cool item to own, and at $138, won’t break the bank.

Water Purifier Pump Lets You Drink Just About Anything


If you’re planning a long trip out in the wilderness, you’re going to have to think about how you’re going to stay hydrated. One solution is to bring tons of water with you, but that stuff is heavy. Another is to simply pack the MSR Sweetwater Purifier System.

MSR’s SweetWater Purifier System gives you added protection against bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. This backcountry kit includes a SweetWater Microfilter, an 80-micron stainless-steel prefilter, two color-coded silicone hoses, foam float, Universal Bottle Adapter plus cleanside cover, cleaning brush, ViralStop Purifier Solution and stuff sack. Simply pump the water through the SweetWater purifier, then add five drops of the purifier solution per liter and wait five minutes for the purification process to complete. MSR’s water Purifier Solution inactivates 99. 99 percent of waterborne viruses, bacteria, and common protozoan parasites, so you can avoid spending your camping or traveling expedition doubled over in your tent.

There are many systems like this on the market, but MSR’s advantage is that it allegedly produces better tasting water due to the lack of bad-tasting iodine. Considering it’s only $100, it’s a worthwhile purchase for anyone serious about spending some quality time outdoors.

Too Bad You Can’t Eat It: Inflatable Pizza Slice Pool Float

Inflatable Pizza Slice Swimming Pool Float

Mushrooms, pepperoni, olives, and lots of cheese– that’s what makes a perfect pizza for me. However, regardless of your toppings of choice, you’ll undoubtedly be amused at the weirdness and awesomeness of this swimming pool float. Yep, that’s right: it’s shaped like gigantic slice of pizza. In this case, the crust is something you can’t do without, because it also serves as the head rest.

The 72-inch inflatable features cord connectors so you can combine additional loungers (imagine combining a couple of slices to form one whole floating giant pizza!) It also has two drink holders on board so you won’t be thirsty on your floating pie. Too bad you can’t actually sink your teeth into it…

It’s available online for $40+.
