The Pointie is a marker that means serious business

by Caitlyn - on February 27, 2015

Let’s be honest with ourselves for a moment. There are times when our inner pacifist, who wants love and peace for the world, goes flying out the window. This is normally when we’re in a situation that is fight or flight, where your life might actually be on the line based on how you react. This can be dealing with a wild animal while camping, someone trying to mug you, or getting lost and needing to get hold of your own food by way of the land.

Rolling Vertical Garden spruces up your home without taking up much space

by Edwin - on February 27, 2015

rolling-vertical-gardenIf there is one thing that is a mainstay in cities, it would be this – since the population in the area continues to expand, and the amount of land gets more and more scarce, there is only one direction in which buildings are able to be built – upwards. I suppose those of us who grew up in a vast expanse of land, would have missed having a garden around – something which is just not possible if you happen to reside in a cramped apartment. Thankfully, there is always creative thinking involved with the folks over at Hammacher, hence the $179.95 Rolling Vertical Garden.

The name itself says it all – this happens to be the vertical garden that displays five planters in a mere 4′ sq. of outdoor space, where it will also be set on casters in order to provide easy relocation. The Rolling Vertical Garden is ideal for use in balconies or small patios and decks, where the garden’s 60″ vertical post is capable of supporting a pair of large and a trio of small pots which you can make use of for growing herbs, vegetables, and flowers. The pots can be detached easily for convenient planting, and hooked into place at staggered heights in order to maximize sun exposure. Boasting of an attractive terra cotta appearance, the planters are made out of UV-resistant and lightweight plastic.

Monohm delivers first anti-smartphone in the world

by Edwin - on February 27, 2015

runcibleSmartphones are pretty much the staple device for many of us – so much so, in fact, that some of us would even carry a couple of smartphones around simply because we are so busy with our work lives. Having said that, what if you would want to take a break from it all, at least for a while so that you can recalibrate your life and celebrate what is truly important, without a traditional looking smartphone (you know, the rectangular block in your pocket or handbag)? Monohm has just announced the creation of Runcible, which is touted to be the first personal device for the post-smartphone era.

R2-D2 Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure is the most realistic droid to date

by Edwin - on February 26, 2015

r2-d2-scale-figureOver the years, we have seen the most lovable astromech droid of all, R2-D2, appear in a variety of form factors that range from the simple to the complicated, where among them include the cute-as-a-button R2-D2 Soy Sauce Dispenser. Well, this time around, it is serious stuff – there is no horsing around, which is why the $149.99 R2-D2 Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure holds a whole lot of our attention, as it so happens to be one of the most realistic droids revealed to date where R2-D2 is concerned.

The amount of detail involved in this particular action figure is tremendous, where this R2-D2 will arrive complete with a set of tools, not to mention arms and heck – it might not be Force-sensitive, but it still carries a lightsaber! You know, just in case there is a Jedi Master somewhere who was not too careful with their lightsaber and happen to need a spare. The sequencing lights never get tired, and so does its swiveling dome which will boast of a slew of moveable ports and hinged panels. Rolling treads and a retractable third leg would also pave the way for tripedal travel. Special bonus accessories include Ben Kenobi’s round table, Leia’s secret holographic transmission, and a multi-tiered beverage tray. This is an officially-licensed Star Wars action figure, and thankfully, it comes with batteries to help you get started right out of the box.

Da Vinci Auto Coach is an inspiration from the master

by Edwin - on February 26, 2015

da-vinci-autocoachEveryone knows of Leonardo da Vinci – the brilliant thinker who has come up with a whole lot of ideas and actual products that work, not to mention being a true master with the brush as arguably his most famous work, the Mona Lisa, continues to puzzle and inspire people even until today. Well, what we have here is a little bit of da Vinci magic which you can bring home, in the form of the $799.95 Da Vinci Auto Coach, which was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches from 1478 of a self propelled car.

This would be different in a sense, since it is a working auto coach that will pay homage to the polymath’s original design. It has long been considered as the ancestor of the modern car, where da Vinci’s concept mobile moved about using coiled springs which were wound by pulling the vehicle backwards. Similar to its inspiration, the da Vinci auto coach will feature coils that are attached to the rear wheels, and you wind those up by pulling the car backwards. Upon release, the energy will be transferred to the clock-like spur gears in order to drive the auto coach forward for several feet. The entire shebang is made up of 1/8″-thick, laser-cut stainless steel and brass bearings which will be able to generate smooth, elegant movement of the gears, axles, and wheels.
