Ever had something happen on the road and wished there was a way to communicate with the car behind you? Well if the Roadwayve campaign delivers on its promise, you might finally be able to. It’s essentially a screen that’s preprogrammed with a variety of messages you can display in your rear window — things like “I’m sorry,” “Go around,” or “Thank you.” The only downside? It’s designed specifically with conflict resolution in mind, so you can’t plaster obscenities and insults on the display if someone is driving like an idiot behind you.
There are few things as tedious and unenjoyable as cleaning out a cat’s litterbox — but what if you didn’t have to do it manually anymore? That’s precisely the idea behind the iKuddle — a fully automatic litter box that saves you time and effort by doing all the hard work for you. After your cat has left its donation and exited the box, iKuddle uses sensors to find the waste, scoop it into a scent-proof bag, and stow it away until you’re ready to empty it. Pretty nifty, right?
This thing is pretty sweet. It’s essentially a single-person tent that’s optimized for simplicity, light weight, and extensibility. By itself, it’s an all-in-one tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad — all designed to fit neatly inside each other and roll up into a compact, pack-friendly size. This new version even has poles and stakes integrated directly into the body, so there’s no chance you’ll leave something behind. When paired with other Rhinowolfs (rhinowolves?), this sucker can zip into adjacent tents to create a larger, more roomy shelter.
This is basically the third iteration of a drone released in 2016 called the Airselfie. After a few ups and downs and a lackluster second generation, the company is back with a new-and-improved version that makes the old model look like a brick. Air Pix, as it’s called, builds upon the original design and features a better camera, a smaller form factor, and better battery performance. Let’s just hope they improved the mobile app. It was absolutely atrocious in version 2.0
Travel blankets aren’t exactly a new idea at this point, but this one takes the concept to a whole new level. First of all, it’s filled with lightweight and ultra-compressible insulation, which allows you to stuff it into an impossibly small bag when you’re not using it. Second of all, it has integrated pockets for your not only your stuff, but also for your feet and hands. There’s even snaps on the sides so you can loop it around your neck, or attach it to another blanket. If you’re going to pay $100 for a blanket, it better be one that’s this awesome.
