StakeLight Set With LED Lighting And Emergency Strobe

We know that camping out in a tent is supposed to remove you from the ravages of technology and allow you to get “back to nature,” but does that mean all modern innovations should go by the wayside.

CorkNet: Make Any Table A Ping Pong Table

Many people don’t believe this, but back in my college days, I was a pretty ferocious ping pong player (or table tennis, if you prefer). Unfortunately, life happens, I got older, and fell out of practice. Well, that wouldn’t have happened had I had the CorkNet with me 24/7. This unique innovation from across the pond turns virtually any table into a ping pong table. Its primary purpose is to divide any surface so that it becomes table tennis-ready. However, you can also use it as a trivet if so inclined. The early bird on this Kickstarter project is still Read More

Life-Sized Mousetrap: Yes, We Mean The Board Game

Growing up, one of my favorite board games in the world was Mousetrap. The bright colors, the mad, controlled chaos of kinetic energy: there’s a reason it’s been around as long as it has. But the game, designed by Rube Goldberg did have one caveat. It thought too small. Enter Mark Perez. Perez, a Mousetrap enthusiast, wondered what it would be like to bring the game to life in a 25-ton behemoth. And that’s just what he did. Perez has been operating the Life-Sized Mousetrap for a number of years now, and a thing like this requires constant upkeep. That’s Read More
