Blink Steady Bike Light

Finally someone has designed a nice looking bike light that you can leave installed on you bike when you have to lock it up. This light is waterproof and features torx screws so it’s harder to steal. The project was posted on kickstarter and has gone into full production, you can check that out here if you’re interested in picking one up. They start at $95 and feature an automatic on/off mechanism that is triggered by darkness, so once its installed you don’t have to do much besides change the batteries.

Invisible Speaker

Cool concept for a speaker that fits into almost any room, since it’s nearly invisible. It’s WiFi compatible and comes with a dongle that will fit any headphone jack so it’s easy stream music onto it. The speaker comes packed in a small box and the owner has to order the sheets of glass to fit into the speaker box once assembled. It is still in the pre-production phase so head over to People People for more information and updates as they become available.


Everyday Carry

Came acoss a cool blog today. It’s called Everyday Carry. They post up items that people carry every day with them, so I came up with my own for the picture (above, the one below I stole off their site). They also post the contents of the EDC and sometimes links to the items. Head over to their site to check out other peoples EDCs, it’s pretty interesting.

Coffee Cup Power Inverter

Thought this was a cool way to mask bulky power inverters for your car. You can pick one up over at ThinkGeek for $29.


External Hard Drives


Saw these on Etsy a while ago. I could not find the wood ones again but the NES drives are available here in up to 1TB drives and with any NES game cartridge as the enclosure.


dAlH20rean


This rc car runs on aluminum soda can tabs. It’s called the dAlH20rean and it was created by Aleix Llovet and Xavier Salueña. This is really cool and it pays homage to the back to the future movies.
