Zubits Fastener Lets You Say Goodbye To Tying Your Shoelaces Forever

slideshow_1

You know you live in the first world when it actually seems like a good idea to buy a product whose only purpose is to make it possible for you never to tie your shoelaces again. This first world solution is called Zubits, and is a set of magnets with holes through which you’re meant to thread your laces. Once this is done, getting in and out of your shoes is as simple a matter as unsnapping the fastener, sliding your foot in, and snapping them back together. Getting out involves holding your heel down with your other foot and pulling out; the pressure should be enough to separate the magnets again and free you. It’s a cool idea, although here’s hoping they don’t come loose while just walking or running. They cost between $20 and $22, depending on size.

The Last Shirt You’ll Ever Need

fg1i3411

Ever notice that so called “premium” t-shirts aren’t truly premium? It seems there’s no middle ground between a cheap 5 pack of Hanes and a $100 “designer” t-shirt. Serial entrepreneur Will Spero decided to do something about it. He launched Last Shirt On Earth on Kickstarter to make the highest quality premium and affordable t-shirt.

Most t-shirts are made with a single layer of cotton, having a rough side and a smooth side. Last Shirt designed theirs with two delicate pieces of high thread count Supima cotton knit together, leaving the softest part of the fabric on both the inside and the outside of the t-shirt.

Not only does this create a shirt that is extremely comfortable to wear, but it resists stretching out or shrinking and its super durable.

Available in regular and slim fit, the shirts run for $30 a pop and come in five different colors.

The Office Gym Lets You Work Out At Your Desk

officegym-20287

You spend your day sitting on your behind, typing away at your keyboard, not burning a single calorie and getting fat. It’s the life of most of corporate America, but you don’t have to take it. With the Office Gym, you’ll be able to perform some basic resistance training exercises that will keep some of your muscles toned, and your blood flowing. It attaches directly at the back of your chair, and lets you do a variety of “3D exercises”. It’s not quite as good as a proper session at the gym, but it’s definitely better than nothing. For the pleasure of being able to get some physical work done at work, you’ll have to pay $129.

The World’s “Best Razor” Costs $300

smOneBlade_Study_03_rev21

So how do you justify charging someone $300 for a razor. Let’s see. The OneBlade Razor is made from German stainless steel, PVD coated for corrosion resistance, hand-polished, Teflon coated springs… heck even the blade is supposed to be some fancy Platinum-coated Japanese Feather blade. It only uses the one blade, hence the name, and is a limited edition item that’s meant to be passed down generation to generation. Replacement blades work out to about $1 each. And if you feel like you’re not spending enough money this way, the company even has a “Collector’s Edition” razor for a cool $1,000. That one’s numbered, so you know you’re getting something special.

Hey, what’s the point in having too much money if you can’t find items to purchase that the common mortal can’t?

3D Printed Modular Wine Rack is Ingenious In Its Versatility

gustavino-8

We come across a lot of wine racks while sourcing content for OhGizmo! But we’ve rarely seen a product as ingenious as the GustaVino 3D printed modular wine rack. By using some clever hexagonal geometry, the modules are able to accommodate wine collections of varying sizes without leaving many empty spots as your numbers dwindle. The basic three-piece kit can handle between 1 and 4 bottles with just a little reconfiguration, for instance. And as your collection grows, you can simply add more hexagons; the modularity allows you to build out the overall rack in different ways, and let your imagination run wild.

You can purchase the digital file for £19, and print as much rack as you want at home. But if you don’t just happen to own a 3D printer, prices for pre-made modules start at £19 for a 3-piece kit, £39 for a 6-piece, and up to £137 for a 24-piece monster.

Caffeinated Shaving Products Kick Start Your Mornings

caffeinated-_shave_products_1

Can you even absorb caffeine through your skin? We’re not sure, but we’re going to assume you can because otherwise we’re not sure what the point of this product is. Caffeinated Shaving Cream and After Shave from Pacific Shaving Company are two products that claim to help give your morning a bit of a kickstart thanks to the addition of caffeine to their panoply of other moisturizers, antioxidants, and related ingredients. Apparently caffeine will serve as a vasoconstrictor, tightening your blood vessels and helping your skin look smoother a less red. And yeah, they claim caffeine is indeed absorbed through the skin, although we can’t imagine you’ll be able to replace your morning coffee with your shaving routine anytime soon.

Still, something interesting to try, if only because it’s $16 for the set.

StashPad Holds Your Booze and Cigars Discretely

iPad Flask

If you’ve been caught sneaking drinks in one too many times, then you should do away with your old methods and try using the StashPad for a change. It looks like an iPad (okay, maybe a knockoff iPad seeing as it’s way thicker than Apple’s tablets), but it’s actually a flask and cigar case in disguise. It’s thick for a good reason too– all 12 ounces of it, because that’s the volume of drinks it can effectively stash for you.

Just make sure you don’t attempt to actually use the StashPad, whether as a tablet (in case you forget) or as a flask, in front of your boss or you’ll risk giving yourself away. The StashPad is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $15 will get you one of your very own.

Make A Supervillain Entrance With The Terry Lifts, The At-Home Elevators

lifestyle_home_elevator_by_terry_lifts_1

Ok, so this is supposed to be for elderly people who have trouble going up and down stairs, and who don’t like the idea of getting a stairlift. Terry Lifts, from the UK, has a product for you: the Lifestyle Home Elevator. It’s able to carry up to 550lbs, stops at the slightest obstruction, and won’t move unless the door is closed properly. It can also provide the young-at-heart senior with the perfect prop with which to carry on his Supervillain act, allowing him or her to make a grandiose entrance whenever guests have arrived; all that would be missing is a hairy cat. There’s no word on price, though you can be sure it ain’t cheap.
