Hip, forward-thinking people know that dirty fossil fuels are the past and that green, clean, renewable forms of energy – e.g. solar, wind, turbine, hydroelectric – must start to come mainstream to preserve our beautiful, yet now-fragile planet. The BioLite CampStove stands out as a shining example toward those ends. Outdoor adventurers will likely find it incredibly useful and innovative. Food is cooked with nothing more than a charge and a few twigs (or pine cones, wood chips, etc.), eliminating the need for dingy containers of gas. Think that’s the only benefit? Nope. CampStove transforms the heat produced by fire Read More
Allow us to introduce you to the king of all Jacuzzis. The Swim Spa Luxema 8000 is a double-decker that combines a Jacuzzi with a swimming area. It also features a large LCD television, DVD player, built-in stereo system, and its own bar. Of course, for $58,000… we wouldn’t expect anything less.
Ready for those Autumn leaves yet? Neither are we, but cleaning them up doesn’t have to be all that bad. The Leaf Loader eliminates all of that wasted time you spend creating piles, bending and scooping. Simply insert the Leaf Loader into a bag, can or bin, and start raking the leaves into the 4 foot wide-mouth funnel from up to ten feet away. When you’re done, fold the loader up flat and stash it away.
Picture this: You’re mowing your lawn in mid-summer, exhausted and sweating bullets. You look to your right and see a small robot zipping around your neighbors yard, cutting the grass perfectly. Meanwhile, your neighbor relaxes by the pool. Feel like a chump yet? The LawnBott SpyderEvo is a next-generation robot mower that’s capable of doing everything on its own. Simply place the perimeter wire around your lawn and any areas you don’t want cut (i.e. flower gardens, swimming pools, etc.), turn the robot on and let it do its thing. It’ll run for up to 3.5 hours before needing to recharge. Read More
Drive-in theaters are, for the most part, a thing of the past. That is, unless you’ve got one in your backyard. The CineBox Home Backyard Theater System is a massive, inflatable 220-inch movie screen. It comes with everything you need for playing your favorite movies and video games by the pool, in your backyard, or even on the beach. You get a LCD Sanyo projector, DVD player, audio mixer, speakers, cables, yard stakes, and an electric air blower. When you’re finished, the 16 foot screen deflates and fits inside a duffle bag, weighing just eight pounds.
Surf art combined with functionality. The Bombwatcher Surfboard Chairs are fold-to-flat surfboard styled chairs that were designed by Clinton Underwood in Cocoa Beach, Florida. They’re rot-resistant, handcrafted from cedar and oak, and easy to carry and store. There are two styles to choose from: a 5 ft. tall longboard with a single fin, or a 4 1/2 ft. tall shortboard with three fins. Custom orders are also available on request, including woodburned or painted designs.
“Honey, I’m going out to the shed” used to mean you were headed out to sharpen your lawn mower blades or paint a birdhouse. With the Tetra-shed it’s more likely to mean you’re going to check your email. Looking like a little wooden space pod, the Tetra-shed is designed as an outdoor office/studio with built-in desks and overhead storage cupboards, perfect for communing with nature while you’re communing with your social networks. They can be just about any color you want, or finished in copper, zinc, steel, or plywood. The modular design also allows Tetra-sheds to be joined together into Read More
Household chores are a pain in the ass. We’d much rather be out riding our hoverbikes or playing pool… in the pool. So any sort of clever gadgetry that helps us work smarter, rather than harder, is welcomed. The Bear Claw Scoops do just that. Slip the claws over your hands, grab the handles and clean up piles of leaves in a fraction of the time that it would take you with your bare hands. If there are kids around, chances are they’d find these tools a lot of fun, giving you even less work to do yourself.
