This Wristband Can Help You Stop Snoring

antisnoreEBRM1810jul3-775x437

Keeping your neighbours awake with your late night nasal concertos? The market is flooded with a myriad of products who claim to be able to help you, and the Goodbye Ibiki-kun EB-RM1810 is yet another one. This Japanese wristband can hear you snoring, and if you do so more than 3 times in one night, will generate a small electric current that should in theory prompt you to switch positions without waking you up. Often just turning to your side can help stop the snoring, so this could actually work. That said, it’s also not something you couldn’t achieve with a simple smartphone application, and you wouldn’t have to pay 7,980 yen (roughly $78) for it.

PocketBands – Wristbands With a Hidden Pocket

PocketBands

We’ve all experienced it: You’re working out and that damn key knotted on the drawstrings on your pants keeps getting lost…

Yup, it’s annoying and distracting. Even though pockets are great, they’re not so great when you’re engaging in athletic activities. But now you can eliminate that problem with the new Kickstarter campaign, PocketBands, a wristband with a hidden pocket.

The bands are great for when you’re running, surfing, biking, skating, swimming and other sports or activities you do where you don’t want to hold things in your pockets; simply stash away a key or some cash in the hidden compartment that each band features. But besides being functional, they’re also comfortable and pretty stylish, available in a variety of colors and patterns. They’re made using a stretchy, surgical-grade silicone, which makes them durable, water-proof, and pretty comfy to wear. You can get them in four different sizes (small to extra large) and in a bundle of 3 if you pledge $20 toward the campaign.
