Real Life Marty McFly’s Self-Drying Jacket Now Has An Improved Version

What you see here is the real-life self-drying jacket as depicted in the sci-fi flick Back to the Future II. In fact, this isn’t the first. Created by Falyon Wearable Tech, the SDJ-02 Self-drying Jacket is, as denoted by the jacket’s model name, the second version. The first was introduced just in time for when the future was supposed to be, in 2015. It had a bit of success on Kickstarter back then and Falyon has yet again taken to Kickstarter in order to get it mass produced. However, this time, the improved self-drying jacket has a little better reception. Continue reading Real Life Marty McFly’s Self-Drying Jacket Now Has An Improved Version

100% Solar-powered Stove Lets You Enjoy Pollution-free BBQ Anywhere

Forget about charcoal, firestarter and heavy grill the next time you BBQ, because SolSource, the clean and green sun-powered grill, now has a version designed with portability in mind. Called SolSource Sport, it leverages on the same principle as the larger SolSource but in a package that’s a lot more easy to handle when heading out, be it to the woods or on a yacht. SolSource Sport opens up to roughly 31.5 inches (80 cm) wide and the special concave mirrors is capable of generating up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 Celsius!) of heat for a variety of cooking style and it does so much quicker too, in about 180 seconds, than traditional fuel like charcoal.

2nd Generation BiTool Now Gets A Super Cool Magnetic LED Flashlight

Remember the BiTool Magnetic Multi-tool from Cycop we spoke so highly of? Well, it is back with a new iteration and it is called BiTool 2.0 Lit. To be honest, we didn’t think BiTool needs any further tweaks, but the folks over at Cycop managed to find something to improve on. For starter, it is a more compact, lighter, touts even stronger magnets, and it now has more functions, including a nifty, detachable flashlight. The same rapid deployment of tool bits, along with magnetic mechanism, are carried over and like its predecessor, it features a robust magnetic ratchet system that has 180-degree of freedom that allows BiTool 2.0 to work even in the tight spaces and the cylindrical body is lined powerful neodymium magnets so screws and bits can stick to the sides.

Bambooti Now Rocks Stone MacBook Covers Made Of Actual Stones

Belgium-based Bambooti is now is rocking real stone MacBook covers. I know. Laptop covers made out of real stone aren’t new at all. You can find quite a few companies touting them, but I am just going to let you in on this since it is on Kickstarter, which means they are usually going at significantly lower prices. So, how much are we talking about? We are talking about €65-75 (around US$72-83), or €35-45 (~ US$39-50) for the smartphone version. So, yes. Bambooti’s new collection has your smartphone covered too. As said, stone covers aren’t new, but still, we thought we should highlight some of the features Bambooti has to offer.

Zillion Wallet Is Sleek, Slim, And It Charges And Find Your Phone Too

I love what I see when I first lay eyes on Zillion Wallet, a wallet which claims to be the “world’s smartest, slimmest wallet,” but the truth be told, the market is saturated with minimal wallets. If the market is saturated, it is saturated and so, it won’t help whether or not it boasts unique features like RFID blocking, and/or even a battery built into it, or has a sleek pitch video that looks like plenty of money was spent on producing it – like what Zillion apparently did. So, yeah. It was true that I was drawn to it mainly by the pitch video our source has posted on its Facebook page. Ok, maybe the beautiful, super slim form does play a part too.

This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

Bear with me for a while for I maybe a little biased here. You see, like many modern homo sapiens, I have a penchant for wrist worn timepiece – particularly, those big-ass wrist watches and although I may not take to the deep blue as much (say hi to the sharks for me), I do appreciate quality diving timepieces as much as any regular diver. While divers love them for its practical intents, I just love the fact that it is huge and uncomplicated (unlike aviation examples). So, naturally, when a hat tip on a big, chunky diving watch called Heavy Armor from Hong Kong-based watchmaker, DELTAt (pronounced as ‘delta’ ’t’) dropped in our inbox, I knew I have to talk about it here. Continue reading This Gorgeous Chunky Diver Watch Has A Big-ass Interchangeable Bezel

CHEN Is A High-tech Travel Padlock That Can Truly Be Called Next-Gen

Do you envision a future without physical keys? Well, the thing is, your front door maybe keyless and so is your car, but sadly, your favorite carryon and/or overnighter you use for traveling probably won’t be keyless anytime soon, and so for now, CHEN is probably your best bet in going keyless on any suitcase. This somewhat egg-shaped padlock is loaded with some serious tech, including built-in GPS/GSM technology to enable you to track CHEN-secured suitcase anywhere in the world, Bluetooth technology that works with a robust servomotor to unlock the lock, an in-built scale with retractable hook for finding out the weight of your baggage, and finally, a lithium ion battery, rechargeable via USB, that lasts for at least two weeks on a single charge.

You Can Wirelessly Charge This Wallet That Wirelessly Charge Your Phone

Have you gotten into the minimalist wallet bandwagon? No? That’s probably a good thing because your phone could use a little backup juice. But why is it a good thing? And why has it got to do with power bank? Well, because of Poqit. Poqit is no minimal wallet. In fact, it is not much different from a typical wallet in terms of size, but hidden within its BREE crafted small leather form is the elixir your smartphone craved so much: a 2,500 mAh rechargeable battery. Now, wallets with integrated battery are not groundbreaking nor new, but Poqit is different. Continue reading You Can Wirelessly Charge This Wallet That Wirelessly Charge Your Phone

Mighty Stash Pack Is The Lunch Bag That You Never Knew You Need

The thing about any bag is, they are cumbersome when you are done with them. This especially true for lunch bags. After emptying the content into your stomach, you are left with the same bulky container it was when filled with food. But that won’t be the case for Mighty Stash Pack. Mighty Stash Pack is not capable of stashing jeans, sweatshirt and whatnot like Hermione’s Beaded Handbag, but it is close. It is super flat when not in use, but when you need to stuff several things, it opens up to a roomy tetrahedron shape bag. Though Brooklyn-based Dynomighty Design have designed it as a lunch bag in mind, it can be used for anything, really. Continue reading Mighty Stash Pack Is The Lunch Bag That You Never Knew You Need
