Not too many of us are explorers of nature anymore. Most of the world has been discovered, and what we haven’t seen personally, there is likely already someone live streaming it with a 360 degree camera every hour of every day, so it’s pretty hard to miss out on. If you do happen to go out into the wilderness with just you and a pack of supplies, there are some things you can’t always plan ahead for. Mainly because it would be hard to carry an entire camper on your back. When it comes to gathering wood for fire so that you don’t get chilly at night, a forest normally has you covered with sticks and branches, but there will come a time when you have to make your own.

Since there are some spots that don’t have wood sitting in wait for your usage, you have to gather it yourself. Seeing that you don’t want to lug a chainsaw around, you could always spring for this Pocket Saw instead. This is made of a heat-treated high carbon steel with two heavy duty nylon handles, all of which can do their job regardless of the weather conditions you put them in.

Obviously you don’t want to pay up $42 for a pocket saw unless you intend on using it. If you are one of those people though, you’ll find this setup to be particularly light at 6.4 ounces. It also comes with a case for easy carrying so that it can be put on your belt or in your backpack without chewing up everything it comes into contact with. It’s 25.6” long, so make sure any task you put it up to isn’t going to rival the trees in the redwood forest.

The Tsubo Foot Massager will rub your feet at the end of a long day Fri, 09 Dec 2016 21:15:20 +0000 tsubo-foot-massager

Life would be grand if we had a personal chef to cook us healthy meals and a massage therapist on call to rub out the stresses of the day that follow us home. Of course, that would require making a lot of money to keep up with the expenses of paying those people a living wage. Since not too many of us are made of money, we have to find ways to keep ourselves fed and relaxed without paying an arm and a leg.

While doing yoga and drinking tea will probably reduce your blood pressure, it won’t take the ache out of your feet like the Tsubo Foot Massager could. It looks like two cork screws joined at the base, but will untie the knots in your feet without much work from you. You simply put this on the floor, and roll it under your feet, working through your tired muscles with the help of gravity.

This is available in mocha and black, though you’ll probably just want to get the darkest color possible so you can’t tell how gross it’s getting the more you use it. Made of a sturdy elastomer, it should hold up under vigorous rolling, but you probably don’t want to try standing on this. It’ll only cost you $20, and would likely be a good pair with a foot bath to relax your muscles even further. Since your feet support the entirety of your body, it’s a good idea to keep them in as good a shape as possible.

When you live in a household that wants to start eating healthier, it can be difficult to get everyone on board. Especially since there are so many interpretations of what “eating healthier” actually means. For some people, this just means cutting out soda and sweets, while to others it means getting a kitchen scale and carefully measuring every calorie that goes into your body.

The most difficult part of changing your diet is getting used to more specific portions. We’re so used to eating however much and as often as we like, which usually leads to overeating far more than normal. Having lots of dieting aids around like this Jokari Portion Control Pasta Basket will make changing your habits a bit more foolproof. This is only one aspect of meals in the kitchen, but it will definitely help you to keep your meal sizes in check.

This is a collapsible silicone basket that you submerge in boiling water so you can not only measure out your pasta in advance, but can keep your sizes exact.

LuMee Duo offers dual lighting and protection for your iPhone simultaneously Wed, 07 Dec 2016 12:00:53 +0000 lumeeWhen it comes to owning a brand new smartphone, many of us would normally want to keep it company with a protective case as well. After all, you can never quite tell as to when your hand is going to let said device slip from your grip, and the first drop is always the most “memorable”, if I may be permitted to use the term. Hence, a new smartphone should always be accompanied by a protective case purchase — preferably on the spot. LuMee knows this, which is why they have come up with something essential and yet different for iPhone owners in the form of the LuMee Duo.

The LuMee Duo is very special for a very simple reason. This is the first smartphone case of its kind that comes with integrated front and back LEDs, ensuring that regardless of the class or person using the iPhone, the LuMee Duo will be able to deliver professional quality lighting for all photos and videos shot using your Apple device.

The LuMee Duo is already readily available at, select Apple Stores and with an asking price of $69.95. Sure, that might sound like a whole lot more to throw into the mix after you have already spent a considerable sum of money on the handset itself, but think of the benefits in return as well as long term protection against unexpected knocks and drops. The LuMee Duo will be available for newer generation iPhones only, namely the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus. Each LuMee Duo case will arrive in a choice of Black Matte, White Glossy, Gold Matte and Rose Matte colors so that they do not end up looking ugly when used alongside a similarly colored iPhone.

It is time to let loose that selfie beast in you with the LuMee Duo!

This Wireless Jump Rope lets you work up a sweat in small spaces Tue, 06 Dec 2016 18:30:07 +0000 wireless-jump-rope

When you live in a tiny apartment in a busy city, the only place you can really go work out is the gym. It’s not what anyone would prefer, but it’s the only place you can really get in the zone without worrying about knocking into something. If you don’t have the time to make it to the gym, then you’re going to need to figure out how to make due despite the space restrictions.

While changing your diet and taking the stairs more often will certainly contribute, this Wireless Jump Rope will definitely help you get in more cardio without destroying your home. This consists of two jump rope handles with a small bit of rope and a ball attached to each end. When you spin the balls in a circular motion and jump in time, it will keep track of how many jumps you have performed, and how many calories burned that translates to.

You’ll also be able to track your time spent jumping, which you will have to do much less of than most other cardiovascular activities, as ten minutes of jumping rope is the same as running for thirty. This comes in black or pink, with either option costing you $19.99. You will need to have batteries on hand to power the LCD display, but seeing that you won’t be using this for hours at a time, one set should last for quite a while.

Victorian Futurist’s Electric Cycle offers something different to get about Tue, 06 Dec 2016 12:00:47 +0000 victorian-futurist-cycleNot all bicycles are created equal, as some other models tend to be more attractive than the rest. Well, when it comes to getting around in style, you can either own a flashy sports car, or you could perhaps take a slightly different route this time around — with the $12,000 Victorian Futurist’s Electric Cycle. Yes sir, the name alone is quite a mouthful to swallow or pronounce, but the sheer physical presence of the Victorian Futurist’s Electric Cycle is certainly food for thought.

This might not be your conventional bicycle as it is more of a tricycle, and good thing you do not need to power it through pedaling. Rather, this is an electric-powered ride that is made in England, and it will certainly bring about memories of the spaceflight-inspired fantasy of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne with a rocket-shaped nose cone which will make up its passenger section. This will be a Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, where it runs on a 36-volt rechargeable battery that will power the tricycle’s 500-watt electric motor. Of course, it comes with assisted pedaling apart from a seven-speed dérailleur that will pave the way for purely human-powered operation.

It is not going to be a burden on your legs if you are going to cycle in this bad boy, since it comes with a lightweight aluminum girder chassis frame which can support up to 540 lbs. This particular tricycle ensconces passengers in the following configurations: four children or one adult, with the front compartment’s pair of Italian leather-upholstered reclining, removable, and safety harness-equipped bench seats. In the interior of the forward nose cone, there should be ample storage space to stash an entire day’s worth of picnic munchies or helmets. You will also not fret about letting it get away since you can stop confidently thanks to the Tektro front and rear hydraulic disc brakes. There are button controls for the throttle, horn, hi/low-beam headlight, and turn indicators, while a piece of the future appears in the form of an LCD display that points to speed, distance travelled, gear, and current battery level.

The BooBand is a sports bra alternative Mon, 05 Dec 2016 18:30:53 +0000 boob-band

If you are a lady with a cup size above A, you know how difficult it is to work out. Any vigorous movement will jostle your chest so much that it feels like your ribcage got whiplash. Not only that, but you also have to deal with the constant anxiety that you’re being oogled because some of your body is bouncing when the rest is not.

The BooBand is hoping to not only help you assuage that fear, but give you a bit more confidence when doing low, medium, or high impact activities. There are roots in the medical support world for this creation, and its supposed benefits would be the prevention of injury, movement, ligament damage, pain, sagging, and improving your posture to boot. If all that is true, then being able to pick up speed on a morning run would only be met with better results rather than side-eyes. This can be used in place of a sports bra or in tandem with them so that you have maximum security.

This is only available in small and medium sizes, catering to the 2-6 and 8-12 dress size categories. It’s made of nylon, elastomer, and polyester, and can be washed, though you’ll likely want to hand wash rather than machine, and always let it air dry. You can pay $30 for one, or $50 for two, with your only color options being black and pink. Seeing as these aren’t supposed to be worn on the outermost layer, that aspect likely isn’t going to be a major point of contention.

Other details include 4GB of RAM, an octa-core processor, a front fingerprint sensor, and an eye protection mode.
