Water’s becoming more scarce, and it’s scary how much of it is wasted on over-watering lawns and gardens. Most of you don’t have time to continually reset your sprinklers according to the weather. A weather-adjusted timer requires a separate weather station installed on your roof, which probably doesn’t seem like a great option either. Skydrop’s weather-monitoring service, though, helps you water efficiently. This sprinkler controller connects to The Cloud to get local, real-time weather data, which it then uses to determine if your lawn and garden need watering. It analyzes not only atmospheric weather but also the amount of water Read More
Garrett Finney is at it again. The former NASA designer has already made waves with his Cricket Trailer design, which promised (and delivered) a “covered wagon for the new frontier.” Now through his Taxa LP company he is bringing together the camper and toolbox into Firefly, a portable rugged invention that can act as a storage unit or temporary shelter. The aluminum construction keeps the weight light at just 600 pounds so you can load Firefly into the bed of a pickup truck along with a couple of dirt bikes for a full day of riding. It’s also light enough Read More
Even a Stormtrooper has his softer side and you can see it with this Death Star Birdhouse modeled after the planet killing battle station of the evil empire in the original Star Wars film.

The material used is a high-quality ceramic. Pack contains the birdhouse itself and one wire hanger so Read More
Ever been stuck out in the wild stinking to high heaven and not knowing where the next spritz of water is going to come from? If so, then you would have probably enjoyed having a Nemo Helio Pressure Shower in your corner. Unlike the gravity fed camp showers, which require hanging to work effectively, while still producing crappy water pressure, Helio goes on the ground and delivers fantastic pressure for washing your hair, rinsing off gear, or even doing the dishes. If you’ve got any camper in you — along with maybe a little vanity — you’ll want to pick Read More
Renetto Zero Gravity Hammock is an essential summer pick-up if you’re needing something easy to set up and supportive enough to comfortably hold your full body weight. Just snap the poles into the pivot joints, stretch out the fabric between the two sides, lock both sides in place, and get ready to relax. Unlike most hammocks, the Zero Gravity can actually incline and recline, so it’s basically the hammock version of the La-Z-Boy. And when you’re done, just roll up the fabric, remove the poles, and place back into the bag for easy storage. Summer has never been this comfortable.
