Handiheadset

Headsets exist so you don’t have to keep holding your phone up to your ear when you’re making calls. And then there’s the Handiheadset, which is a headset in the form of a hand making the “call me” sign. Designed by Stephen Moore to “make the world a little more surreal,” the Handiheadset is compatible with most mobile phones and PCs.

You might look a little strange with this hand in your face during a video conference, but that’s probably the point.

Donor Cable Bracelets Lets You Share Power to Those In Need

Donor Cable

So your phone’s running low on power and you forgot to bring your cable or charger (or both) with you. You’re in the middle of typing out an email for your boss or getting the hang of the game that everyone at your office is playing. Whatever it is you’re doing, you’re desperate for power. Unfortunately, nobody around you has a charger on them either. If only there were some way you could bum some power off of their phones…

Well, if you had the Donor Cable, then that’s exactly what you can do. It was distributed byAzerbaijani cellular network Nar Mobile to anyone who bought an Android phone. It starts out as a bracelet but unfolds to turn into a cable that allows you to connect your phone to someone else’s for battery power transfer.

Smart Pepper Spray Immobilizes Your Attacker, Takes Their Picture Too

Smart Pepper Spray

Pepper spray may send assailants running, but it won’t exactly help you catch the bad guys if they still have their bearings after being sprayed on and manage to run from the scene of the crime. Regular pepper spray, that is, because the Defender lets you do both. It’s a smart pepper spray gizmo that does a lot of things aside from peppering attackers with pepper spray.

First of all, it takes their picture, which will be useful when you have to identify them from a police lineup. Since it’s connected to Defender’s 24/7 Monitoring Service, it also sends your GPS coordinates to law enforcement and emergency responders at the push of a button so they’ll know where to find you. It’s also equipped with speakers and an oscillating light that sounds and lights up to alert people nearby that there’s a crime in progress (and possibly thwarted already.)

Deliciously In Order: Doughnut Earphone Organizer

Doughnut Headphone Organizer

No, this isn’t a bite-sized doughnut, although it’s easy to see how most people can mistake it for one. The Doughnut Earphone Organizer is, as its name implies, an organizer that you can use to keep your earbuds in order when you’re not using it.

I used to coil my earphones around my iPod when I was done listening to music and didn’t really see a need for an organizer. I’d end up having to replace my earbuds in a few months’ time though, because the added stress of just coiling them around eventually wore the wire down. So if you have to have an organizer, why not choose something as yummy and easy-to-use as this little doughnut right here?
