Between the coronavirus outbreak and the impact it’s having on lives and livelihoods, there’s a lot of stress in our world these days. While they’re not going to solve any big problems, stress balls can help you work out some of your tension.
If you liked Vans’ waffle sole iPhone case, check out XSories’ Sneaker Power Bank. Its 4200mAh battery is protected and decorated by a rubber outsole-like design. The design also conceals the battery’s LED indicators.
The Sneaker Power Bank has two 5V/2.1A USB ports and comes with a charging cable with integrated microUSB, USB and 30-pin charging tips.
If you’re like me, you’re probably starting to amass a collection of flash drives that’s as big as that stack of AOL CDs you had back in the 1990s. But fans of The Simpsons will have to run out immediately and add to their flash drive collection with these fun new storage devices from USBTribe.
I’ll admit that from time to time, I do want to carry around a pocket watch, but the obsessiveness of always being on time and knowing the exact time, right down to the second takes precedence in my timely, regimented world.
This watch has a distinctive face, that looks like it was folded by an expert at origami. British designer Benjamin Hubert created this for Italian accessory maker Nava. The Plicate watch has its increments integrated as three dimensional surfaces, which definitely gives it a cool look.
Mobile phone stands aren’t all equal, and I have to say that this one definitely is different from others I’ve seen before. The iLoop is basically a thick silicone ring that doubles as an iPhone stand, and oddly enough, an exercise grip.
I never thought about reusing a spent airbag for much of anything, but it does make sense to upcycle this kind of durable material if you can. Toronto-based Mariclaro makes them all into backpacks and carryalls that are quite different from others that I’ve seen.
Here’s a fun way to keep your beverages nice and cool at the same time as giving you a nice straw to drink from. This special silicone rubber ice mold can freeze six 8-inch-long, frosty straws at once.
Like most geeks, you’ve probably acknowledged the passing of the day that Skynet became self-aware. Depending on the dates, it should have happened on April 19th, 2011, or worst case, on April 21st, Judgment Day. Needless to say, I hope that Skynet or any AI system plugged into defense systems remains unaware.
These rubber bags aren’t made to haul your trash, but to haul your precious laptop around. The Rubber Bag Collection from PKG is made from recycled rubber, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t stylish. They can hold and protect laptops from 13-inch up to 16-inch models.
My daughter has a bunch of these bracelets that she wears around that look like plain rubber bands when she puts them on. When you take them off, they look like all sorts of stuff like animals or food.
Julien Jaborska’s bicycle tire belts make for nice and unique gifts for bike enthusiasts. Not only do they look good, all of the treads are recycled, so if you get one of these you’re helping the environment too.
Despite his recent “everything I have designed is absolutely unnecessary” comment, I’m still a sucker for most everything Philippe Starck creates. His latest watch design – the Crystal Clear – is a real stunner.
Despite its name, the Crystal Clear actually sports an red face, not a clear one.
Nooka watches tell time using four digital bars. The top bar shows hours 1-6, the second shows hours 7-12, the third shows minutes, and the bottom shows seconds. Are you confused yet?
While the watches in this set all function in the same way, Nooka offers several choices for style and color- camo, rubber, leather, or metal.
