I Want This Screen Protector That Magically Gives iPhones A Back Button

Building And Programming Circuits Is Easy With An iPad As Your Professor

In the past few years there have been countless toys that claim to be STEM-focused (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) but few have done as good a job at introducing kids to concepts like programming and circuitry than a small company called LightUp. And through a new Kickstarter campaign it’s about to expand what its circuit building toys are capable of, extending their programmability to include the Internet of Things.


A Tiny Video Game-Playing Business Card You Can Smuggle In Your Wallet

A year ago, Kevin Bates single-handedly justified the antiquated tradition of swapping business cards with a thin and tiny handheld console that could even play video games.

A Fibonacci Clock Is Hands-Down The Nerdiest Timepiece

There are many possible ways to broadcast both the time and your level of nerdiness to the outside world. A Star Wars projection clock, for example. A watch that tells the time in binary also works. But far, far more effective than any of these is a bedside clock that uses the Fibonacci sequence.

Mattress Sensor Only Silences Your Alarm Clock When You Get Out Of Bed

How many times do you need to snooze your alarm clock before you actually climb out of bed in the morning? Enough to be late for work every day, right? So while there are lots of crazy alarm clock designs out there that make it harder to snooze, the Chipper — which uses a sensor strip to only silence your smartphone’s alarm once you’re physically out of bed — might be the most effective.


This Titanium Bottle Opener Is Crazy Small

When it comes to things that live on your keychain, smaller is pretty much always better. So a bottle opener that weighs basically nothing, and as is as small as your fingernail, sounds like a pretty great deal.


Hyperkin Wants To Turn Your Phone Into A GameBoy

It’s a dangerously day to be teasing awesome retro novelty products, but Hyperkin is at it anyway. The company just announced that the SmartBoy design concept it posted on Reddit — a special iPhone case that lets you play real, physical GameBoy cartridges on your smartphone — is for real. I’m so happy this isn’t an April Fools’ joke.


A Stroller Trailer Lets You Run With A Kid In Tow

Kids are already a pretty fantastic workout since they require constant attention, but if you find your fitness routine hindered by having to deal with a cumbersome stroller, you’ll probably be intrigued by the KidRunner. It’s a new take on the stroller that’s pulled instead of pushed, letting you easily bring your kids along for a run or a jog by strapping a mini U-Haul trailer to your belt.
