This Super Sleek Lunchbox Helps You To Diet Without Tech Intervention

When it comes to lunchbox, one probably didn’t think it needed further innovations. Well, it probably don’t, but then again, gone are the days where you just need a chunk of space for pre-prepared food. These days we are conscious about what we eat and the amount we eat, and then there are the ease of portability and style to take into considerations too. I mean, seriously, you don’t expect yourself to lug along a Macy’s shopping bag just to contain a lunchbox, do you? That’s just so dorky. If you rather not look silly and at the same time, ensure you have a proportioned diet for your next lunch, well, then Fittbo is one attractive option.

Bean-shaped Audio Earbuds Because, That’s The Ear Shape Everyone Has

It’s funny how biometric never gets to the ear since it is a known fact that no two person ears are the same. Ok. That will be totally weird. Anywho, we are not going to talk about the anatomy of the ear, but we heard the science of the shape of our ears had some in-ear headphones makers wanting to custom earbuds for each individual – that’s if, of course, the individual is willing to pay the price, which usually is, how do you say? Alarming? However, there’s a Netherlands-based outfit, Allocacoc, said it has discovered that, despite the differences in individual’s ears, they actually found there is actually a common shape in all ears.

This Dive Tank Floats On The Surface So You Dive Without Being Weighed Down

Remember how Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), led by Jar Jar Binks, dive underwater to reach Otoh Gunga in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace? In that scene, the Jedis used futuristic tiny breathing apparatus on their mouths to survive underwater. Well, the AirBuddy you see here is not that, but I’d say it is pretty damn close without endangering your life. The idea behind AirBuddy is to let avid divers explore shallow water without being bogged down by heavy and clunky dive equipment. It bridges the gap between snorkeling, which you literally just scratch the surface of the ocean, and scuba diving.

This Smart Drinkware Will Keep Your Coffee At The Temperature Set By You

MÜV Chair Keeps You Moving So You Won’t Be Killed By Sitting All Day Long

Sitting is awesome, but as it turns out, sitting kills more people than we care know. Sounds like a scary prospect, especially for a person like me who stay seated for hours on end. I guess sitting is an example of too much of a good thing. That said, if you jobs require to sit all-day long, then maybe it is wise to act on it before it harm your health (speaking to myself actually). With that goal in mind, you can do a few things: set a schedule to stand up and move a bit (stretch or whatnot), sit on a yoga ball, or you could just get the MÜV Chair. MÜV Chair is the brainchild of brilliant minds over at Zero5 Innovations and while it may looks rather run-of-the-mill, it is actually anything but.

A.R. Globe Makes Learning About The World Fun And Interactive For Kids

Digital age has relegate the good’ol globe to decorative piece. I mean, who the hell need a physical globe when Google Earth is just a few clicks away? But that’s for information hungry grownups. As for kids, learning from Google Earth about the Earth itself won’t be much of a fun. Learning is different from digging for information. Learning is what kids do, and it should be fun, and this is where PlayShifu wants to do with Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe. Even a grown man like me gets excited about a mash up of a physical globe and AR (which is essentially what the Orboot Educational Augmented Reality Globe is really about). Continue reading A.R.

Ti Bar – An Uber Stylish Toothbrush Holder For Home And On-The-Road

Unless your idea of luxury is to have a golden throne or one embellished with countless Swarovski crystals, bathroom isn’t quite a place to call luxury, but if you really want to up your bathroom’s ante in the luxe department without splurging tens of thousands on an exquisite throne, then may I suggest the Turtle Ti Bar Titanium Dental Essential Holder. It is not made of gold, neither is it coated with precious stones, but it is of titanium, which means it is both rust-resistant and bacteria-free, and being a titanium, it is in itself one hell of a looker too.
