Wanna See What The Fish Looks Like As He’s About To Eat Your Bait? Now You Can With The GoFish Cam


It’s a good time to be an action cam, so much so that manufacturers have started exploring which realms aren’t already ripe for capture. GoPros and the like are great for recording anything that happens to you, but what if you’re really curious to see how your fish react to the bait at the end of your fishing line? The GoFish cam was designed specifically to be attached securely to a fishing line, providing you with 1080p footage of the underwater action. A tough waterproof casing allows it to go down to 150m, and infrared lights make it possible to still see what happens even in low-light conditions. The rest of the features are much like standard actions cams of today, so it’s really that underwater, line-locking ability you’ll be spending $149 for. It’s being Kickstarted at the moment, so you’ll have to wait until March of next year for yours if the fancy takes you.

The Lumenati Cinematic Smartcase Turns Your Phone Into A Videography Powerhouse


Combining the modern convenience of an iPhone 6’s touchscreen, high-density optical sensor, and sharing capabilities with the old-school cachet, ergonomic form factor, and coolness of a retro lo-fi camera, the Lumenati Smartcase could quickly become the hipster’s favourite method of capturing video.

Cinematographers simply pop their device into the Lumenati CS1 just as grandpa would load an 8mm film cartridge. The lightweight, portable unit allows anyone to frame and film a steady, stable shot with the pull of an intuitive trigger. A cold shoe allows filmmakers to attach lights, microphones and extra handles for sport shooting. The real-time viewfinder allows WYSIWYG capabilities even in bright light, a feature that is elusive to modern mobile devices. Lenses can be swapped to shoot in wide angle, fisheye and telephoto.

The Lumenati CS1 uses an optical-quality glass lensing system. Our lenses range from wide angle to telephoto and deliver crisp stunning images. The lenses are designed for high resolution HD cameras and when paired with the CS1 create the perfect look for any occasion. Standard 58mm interchangeable lensing provides even more versatility with available super wide and fish eye lenses.

If it works as advertised, the Lumenati could be a fun way to capture footage. It’s a $200 to get your own, which comes with a wide-angle lens.

Flailing Your Arms Around On A Bike Isn’t The Most Efficient Way To Signal, The Lumos Helmet Is


Bicycle riders are extremely vulnerable on the road, and despite many using their hands to signal their intention to turn, two cyclists a day lost their lives in 2013 in the USA. Especially in the dark, hand signals are hard to see, but the bright LEDs on the Lumos helmet? These are unmistakable. Directly integrated into the helmet, the LEDs allow you to signal with the flick of a wireless remote mounted on the handlebar. Additionally, a red triangle remains lit on the back, encouraging motorists to proceed with caution. On the front are white LEDs which also remain lit all the time, making you more visible from the front. And finally, an integrated accelerometer activates as a brake light! The helmet is waterproof, meets many safety certifications, and the batteries are easily rechargeable through USB. If you want your own, you’ll have to pledge $99 on their fully-funded Kickstarter.

‘Albert’ Digital Clock Forces You to Wake Up, Calculate the Time

Albert - digital clock for kids (and grownups)

Give your brain an early morning workout every day with Albert. It’s a digital clock that makes you think and do some mental math before giving you what you want– the time. It’s a neat clock to put in your kids’ room and in yours too, specially if the old noodle is in need of some sharpening.

The display shows a mathematical equation instead of the time, and you have to solve it before you can figure out what time of day it is. You can set it to different levels of difficulty and you can start it off at level one, if you’re really that rusty.

MotorMood Lets You ‘Smile’ At Other Motorists



It’s a jungle out there. Some people drive way too fast (or way too slow), while others overtake and cut lanes like there’s no tomorrow. Yep, I’m talking about the traffic in major cities and how crazy things can get. But there are drivers who are pretty awesome, too– those who give way or let you pass when you’re in a rush.

You can flash your headlights or raise your hand to say a quick “thank you,” or you can literally send a smile their way with MotorMood. With the push of a button, you can trigger the MotorMood that’s attached on your rear window to display a happy face.Continue Reading

Neoring for Smartphones: One Stand to Mount Them All


Can your ring do what the Neoring can? The Neoring comes with a strong Neodymium magnet attached onto a crown made from stainless steel. Wear it when you want, and take it off to prop your device up whenever you want to use it as a stand.

It works in conjunction with the Neodisk and the Neotack. The Neodisk, an unobtrusive steel backing, is meant to be attached to the back of your device, while the Neotack is a steel mount you can stick on most surfaces to convert it into an instant holder for your phone or device. Tack the Neotack onto the wall, on your car, on your boat, or on the fridge– the choice is yours.

The Neoring is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $50 will get you the full Neorings package.

Floating Record Spins Your Vinyls Vertically


The joke is getting old: kids won’t know what this is. I think it’s fair to say that it’s been made long enough that kids know what vinyl records, at least as the subject of a very lame joke. So we won’t make it… but we’ll use it as a segue to introduce the Floating Records Vertical Turntable anyway. Those of you who bother to have records probably feel very protective and fond of them, so you ought to get yourself a turntable that lives up to the quality of your affections.

An all-in-one solution, it features built-in, full-range stereo speakers, so it’s easy to get up and running. It uses an Audio-Technica AT95E cartridge mounted on a fully-adjustable carbon fiber tone arm, a DC manual belt-drive system to spin both 33s and 45s, and a high-mass acrylic plinth and platter. It has a headphone jack for private listening, and RCA outs with a built-in preamp in case you want to integrate it into your existing system. Assembled by hand in Chicago.

It’s a striking device, and it comes at a relatively reasonable price of $349. This is a pledge to the Kickstarter campaign, so you will unfortunately have to wait until December to get your shipment.

With MyoWare, You Can Build Your Own Wolverine Claws


You don’t need to a mutant to become Wolverine. Well, you won’t become him per se, but you will be able to build something that’ll extend and retract your claws on command. For that, you’ll need the MyoWare, which is a wearable muscle-sensing platform that lets you control bots, video games, and prosthetics (claws and all.)

MyoWare works by monitoring muscle activity and generating voltage when the muscles are flexed. The harder the wearer flexes, the higher the output voltage produced.

Bartesian Is Like A Keurig Machine For Cocktails


Single-serve cocktail machine? Sign us up! Partisan promises to work much like the single-serve pod-based coffee machines most of you are familiar with. Just like these machines need to be filled with water, Bartesian does require you to fill it with basic spirits (vodka, rum, gin, and tequila). But then you just pop in a flavour capsule and it takes care of the rest; all you have to do is pick the strength and press a button.

At launch you’ll be able to make one of six classic cocktails, like a Margarita or a Cosmopolitan, but there are obviously plans to expand the line if successful. It’ll cost you a $249 Early Bird pledge to get yourself a Bartesian with 12 capsules, and it’s an extra $20 for a pack of 12 more pods. The next pricing tier is $300, so if you’re down, act now while the campaign hasn’t completely taken off.
