Innovative MagnetTab Makes Clunky Coat Hanger A Thing Of The Past

You know how some movies show the actor coming into a room and hang his or her coat by just throwing? I am sure it took more than one take for such a scene and also, I am pretty sure some of us had, at one point in time, try to replicate this coat throwing act. Some get it, some don’t, but hey, this is the 21st century, so there’s ought to be a better way to ensure what you threw sticks, right? As it turns out, there is a way and it is called MagnetTab. MagnetTab is essentially a metal board that you mount on the wall with adhesive tape and it works alongside tiny accessories called MagnetButtons (or ‘loops’) to ‘stick’ your coat on the MagnetTab, or any metal surfaces.

Amazon Tap’s New OTA Update Makes Buying Echo Looks Kind Of Silly

You know how is it with the Amazon Echo. It is a handy personal assistant and an awesome intermediary between you and IoT, but the thing is, it has to stay plugged to the wall outlet. You could cut it from the wall outlet with this handy accessory, or you could get yourself an Amazon Tap, which is essentially the portable version of the Echo. However, it lacks the support of voice command. Tap, as the product explicitly points out, requires you to press a button to communicate with Alexa. So, at this point, it seems like everything’s fine. Continue reading Amazon Tap’s New OTA Update Makes Buying Echo Looks Kind Of Silly

This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked

I would like to think the trend of not tucking in shirt stems from the fact that it gets untucked as easily as it was tucked, and as every men will agree, that is a hell of an annoyance. But what if you really need to tuck it in, like with formal attires? Well, wear a inverted garter belt then. Don’t laugh. I am serious because that’s what the NV S-Holder essentially is. It comes in a set of two, one for each leg, and it works pretty much like the garter belts wore by women in the 50s/60s to hold up their stockings. However, unlike the women’s undergarment accessory which basically pull up the stockings, NS S-Holder keeps the shirt pulled down thus preventing it from being untucked. Continue reading This Garter Belt-like Accessory Will Keep Men’s Shirt Securely Tucked

Grypmat – An Awesome Non-slip Tool Mat That You Never Thought You Need

If you have done work on your car’s engine, you will understand problem with keeping the tools close to you. More often than not, you have to walk to where you toolbox is, or bend down to get them because you can’t really put tools next to as you work on the engine. With the Grypmat all that changes. I know the argument about how you can just use a cheap rubber mat and to that, I will say, why not? BUT if you are into the finer things in life, or if you are working next awkward surfaces, this is it. In fact, the latter is where Grypmat really shines. Continue reading Grypmat – An Awesome Non-slip Tool Mat That You Never Thought You Need

You Can Now Talk To Amazon Echo Like Talking To The Star Trek Computer

Trekkies, you have made your home over-the-top Star Trek-ish with automatic sliding doors, TNG uniform bedding set, USS Enterprise WiFi router, appropriate Star Trek TOS bookends for your Star Trek literatures, Borg fridge, Phaser replica remote control and whatnot, but it will never be complete without you barking out ‘computer’ and have your very own USS Enterprise Starship, AKA your home, ‘onboard computer’ do your bidding. Well, actually, now you can – thanks to Amazon Echo which now includes this iconic word as its wake word to rouse Alexa from her sleep to do your biddings.

Kissenger Lets You Send Simulated Kissing Sensation To Your Love One

This has to be the weirdest stuff we come across today. It is a called Kissenger, the world’s first mobile kiss messenger (hence, the portmanteau ‘Kissenger’). Kissenger is exactly what it sounds like: sending kisses as messages. And just to clarify, the kisses sent here are not by the way of emoji; it is physical kisses, well, kind of. In order for Kissenger to work, it has to be used as a pair. The hardware has a placeholder for your smartphone and there’s a pad packed with sensors and actuators that will simulate kiss with another human. You basically lock lips with the pad and the hardware, aided by a companion app, realizes the kissing sensation on the receiving holster. Continue reading Kissenger Lets You Send Simulated Kissing Sensation To Your Love One

Daft Punk Spruced Up This Christmas With Ornament Set And Snow Globes

You know what the famed, iconic robot helmets don by French electronic music duo could be good for? Christmas tree ornaments. Seriously, we never knew that until we saw the Daft Punk White & Gold Robot Helmet Ornament Set. I must say it was quite a revelation. Suddenly, it all makes perfect sense. Electronic music icons and Christmas. They are like a match made in heaven. There’s just one problem though; a set of two does not come cheap, going at $25 and surely, you are not going to hang only a pair, are you? And so, it is going to cost you like a lot if you plan to decorate your lovely fir with many of these. Of course, you can choose not to, but what else can go with the pair and also, how else can you make the Christmas tree worthy of a Daft Punk theme? Continue reading Daft Punk Spruced Up This Christmas With Ornament Set And Snow Globes

This Unusual Travel Pillow Lets You Sleep In 5 Different Ways When Flying

When given a proper bed, humans have the liberty to sleep however we want, be it curling up, sideways, or even face down, but when you fly or commute on a train, there is all but one option: sleeping while seated. Unless you opt for first class seat, a travel pillow is likely the only reprieve you are going to get for this pain in the neck (like, literally) rest time. With conventional travel pillow, it does alleviate your sleeping woe while traveling, but the option is limited, if there’s any option to start with. This is where FaceCradle Travel Pillow wants to make a difference. Continue reading This Unusual Travel Pillow Lets You Sleep In 5 Different Ways When Flying

Ostrich Pillow Go Is Travel Pillow Done Absolutely Right

Traveling can be a pain in the neck, like quite literally, especially when you are trying to get some shut eye during that dreadful journey. And when travel pillow was invented, we thought we could live happily after, but the truth is, it is not happily ever after for some because travel pillow is one-size fits all which obviously, we humans are not quite ‘one-size’. This is where Ostrich Pillow Go comes in. From the Studio Banana Things, the same folks who brought you the Ostrich Pillow, this to-go version reimagines what a travel pillow should be, starting with the philosophy of there’s no such thing as ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution.

Meet 01, The Pen That Measures With A Surveyor’s Wheel-Like Roller

Most of us don’t carry a measuring tape or even ruler with us even knowing that it will come in handy. But that’s not surprising at all. Though tape measures and rulers are not cumbersome, they are a pain to bring along anyways and also, they are not exactly eye-pleasing and nobody likes a 30-cm ruler sticking out of their bags either. That’s not to mention the way to take measurement is kind of outdated, or at least, that’s what Instrumments thought when they embarked on the journey to discover a new way of measuring and the result is an innovative measuring instrument, simply called 01, that’s the size of a pen while capable of measuring everything from the circumference of your waist to the distance between picture frames to even the height of your kids.
