AirVR Wants To Shut Off All Human Contact With An iPad Mini Face-Holder

Would you trade quite literally all of your friends (and $49 shiny Canadian dollars) for a shot at a probably-mediocre virtual reality experience? AirVR, a Canadian company with an entire Kickstarter page all to itself, is thinking yes.


This Self-Weighing Suitcase Gives A Running Total While You Pack

Self-weighing suitcases aren’t a new idea, in fact, they have been available in stores for years now. But in order to actually weigh the contents of your luggage, you need to zip the suitcase up and then lift the whole thing by the handle. To make things a whole lot easier, the TUL suitcase gives a running total of its weight as you throw things in, so there are no surprises.


Make Your Abode Dangerously Cool With The Filmography Of Guns

Movies have given birth to guns of all shapes, sizes and destruction-dispensing abilities, but being able to recall precisely what they look like? Don’t worry, that’s why they invented coffee table books and awesome posters, like those from US artist Cathryn Lavery.


Placemat Plates That Suction To Tables Are Every Parent's Dream

The day a parent hands over the spoon to a toddler learning to feed themselves is the same day that meal cleanup becomes infinitely more involved. Overturned bowls and spills are inevitable, but possibly less frequent if this silicone placemat with a built-in segmented bowl succeeds in its Kickstarter campaign.


This Compact Portable Charger Revives Your Phone With Four AA Batteries

A portable charger can bring your dead smartphone back to life if you forget to plug it in overnight, but what if you forget to charge the charger too? That’s not an issue with the tiny Oivo since it splits in half to accommodate four readily-available AA batteries that have enough charge to completely bring an iPhone back from the dead.


You Can Finally Buy The Design Manual That Defined The NYC Subway

Earlier this year we wrote about the unlikely story of three graphic designers who discovered a copy of the book that dictates every aspect of the subway system, forgotten in the basement of the design studio Pentagram. Now, the MTA has agreed to reprint the 44-year-old design bible for sale — but only for the next 30 days.


An Impossibly Thin Heating Element Stops These Goggles From Fogging Up

There’s nothing like a thin layer of condensation on your ski goggles to ruin a perfectly good run down a hill covered in tantalizingly fresh powder. But active people get warm and sweat, and science says that cold moist air condensing on your goggles is inevitable. Unless you have a pair of these F-BOM goggles strapped to your face which sandwich an incredibly thin heating element between a pair of lenses to keep them clear all day long.


The Vyper Hands-On: This Vibrating Foam Roller Is Freaking Incredible

It’s no secret that foam rollers have been a key part of physical therapy for years. Athletes use them not only to heal from injury, but also to increase flexibility before training and to speed recovery after strenuous exercise. The Vyper is the first foam roller to add vibration to the equation though, and holy crap it’s amazing.


This Tiny Audio Mixer Would Let You Turn Smartphones Into Turntables

Want to mix music in a hurry or on the go? You’ll like the sound of Openmix, a teensy new audio mixing tool being developed right now. With it, you can connect your iPhone to a Walkman with a cassette of rare bongo concerts, or switch between your laptop and tablet.


This Flat-Pack Water Bottle Can Squeeze Inside A Laptop Bag

A backpack has plenty of pouches and pockets for storing a water bottle, but a sleek messenger bag? Good luck fitting a Nalgene in there without an unsightly bulge. You’ll either need to go without and keep an eye out for drinking fountains, or toss a few dollars towards these Kickstarted flat-pack water bottles.
