It's Easier To Tell Time Than Do Maths On This Slide Rule Watch

We now live in a time where kids think of calculators as just another app. But before they were even standalone electronic devices, mathematicians and engineers had to suffice with a confusing mechanical device called the slide rule. But don’t worry, this watch is much easier to use.


I Really Want This Impossibly Complicated Wrench

Between adjustable wrenches and socket sets, mankind has plenty of perfectly adequate tools to fasten and loosen nuts. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting this (concept) irising wrench all the same.


A Pool Floatie That Explodes From Your Wrist Like A Jack-in-the-Box

Well here’s a clever idea. An Indiegogo campaign for a floatie that pulls a drowner to the surface. It looks like a wild ride — a bit like flying through the air while hanging on to a helium balloon.


An Auto-Following Stroller Using VW's Adaptive Cruise Control Is Genius

It might just be a one-off prototype, but new parents who can’t go anywhere without a toddler in tow will love the idea of a stroller with built-in sensors that allow it to autonomously follow someone, while intelligently avoiding collisions.


This Is The World's First Reversible Micro-USB Cable

There was much griping when Apple replaced its old dock connectors with the reversible Lightning cable, but they have made life infinitely easier for iOS users. So the MicFlip, the world’s first reversible micro-USB cable, promises to do the same for Android (and other smartphone) users.

A Toaster That Charges Your Phones And Keeps Cables Hidden Away

Most multi-device charging solutions are kind of an eyesore, but we’re all used to seeing a toaster sitting on a kitchen counter, right? That’s the theory behind the Foaster which camouflages a charging dock as a household appliance.


A Sexy, Futuristic Climbing Centre Is About To Open In Sydney

Climbing centres tend to be a sweaty, dirty chalk-filled affair, housed by a strange combination of children and lean, shirtless men. 9 Degrees, a brand new bouldering gym in Sydney, will no doubt transform into that in years to come. But for now? It’s brand-new. It’s clean, sexy and futuristic as hell.


A Cup-Holding Device Mount Makes Flying Slightly More Bearable

Gone are the days when flying was like taking a luxury cruise. Passengers are now herded onto planes and into seats that barely leave enough room to breath.
