MaKey MaKey Invention Kit

The MaKey MaKey Invention Kit comes from a couple of MIT graduate students, who believe that anyone can be an inventor with the right tools. The guys have already completed a successful round of funding on Kickstarter, earning more than $568,000, and now they’re ready to take their invention to the world. From the image, you can see that MaKey MaKey is a circuit board that looks a little bit like an old Nintendo controller. Switch it over, and you’ll find even more keyboard commands on the back. By plugging the device into your computer’s USB port and then using Read More

GRAYL: The Water Filtration Cup

GRAYL, the water filtration cup currently kicking up dust (or keeping it out) on IndieGogo, is the perfect accessory for those of you who travel a lot or just want to ensure you’re getting the very best H20 possible here in the US. In 15 to 30 seconds — depending on whether you’re using the filter or purifier — you can have most or all of the waterborne pathogens found in normal tap water completely removed from your 16-ounce cup. (Purifiers have two layers of protection and are recommended for use in the developing world; filters just have one.) You’ll Read More

Spin Chill Beerouette

The Beerouette from Spin Chill is a perfect companion piece to the company’s Chill Bit drill bit. If you haven’t heard of either one, then you could be missing out on one of the coolest tailgating inventions to come along in quite some time.

Knowing that the act of spinning something continuously in ice for 30 to 60 seconds would do the trick, they first developed the Chill Bit to Read More

The downside of any vacation is that you tend to forget more than 50 percent of it six months after getting back home. We can see a tool like the GPS Cookie enabling long-term memory so that you keep more of the experiences that you’ve actually had. Once you’re ready to Read More

Eco Throwable Fire Extinguisher

The Eco Throwable Fire Extinguisher is essentially a fire safety grenade that teaches an out of control blaze who’s in charge. (In reality, you’ll probably need more than just one of these for really big fires, but from the looks of things, they sure are effective.) The casing is comprised of a breakable plastic that will erupt at no risk to the person throwing, nor other people in the area. The fire, on the other hand, will be on borrowed time thanks to the 500ml agent — around 16.9 fl oz — of ammonium phosphate dibasic and ammonium bicarbonate inside. Read More
