Foodsniffer Tells You If Your Meat Has Gone Bad

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-7-25-57-am

How many times have you pulled out a three day old uncooked steak from the fridge and stuck it right up your nose, wondering if it’s still good to cook. Or taken a hearty whiff from that tuna steak in the hopes it hasn’t gone bad. It’s not always easy to be sure and I’ve found myself asking others for their opinion before taking a chance on some potentially bad meat. Well with the Foodsniffer, a handheld connected smart device, I wouldn’t have to ask anyone at all. I’d simply connect it to my smartphone, prop it up right against the meat and take a measurement of the gases emanating from it. In seconds I’d be able to know if it’s safe to ingest or if it gets tossed. No taking chances, no second guessing, and no botulism! It’s $89.

The Artican Is The Koozie Reinvented

Arctican

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.

Frebble Lets You ‘Hold Hands’ With Loved Ones Who Are Far Away

Frebble

To say that technology has changed how people communicate is an understatement. Where people used to send telegrams and letters, we now send emails, instant messages, or SMS. Where people used to pick up the phone and talk to each other, we now use video chat and video conferencing where we get to see and interact with the people we’re talking to.

Taking things one step further are the folks behind Frebble, which look like modified joysticks that you’re supposed to grab with one hand as you would, well, a joystick. It let’s people “hold hands” even though they’re far away by communicating these sensations to the other party.Continue Reading
