A Case of the Doodles

A Case of the Doodles

The Lumdoo Duo case for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus artfully plays on contrasts- from the choice of materials to the use of color. The color scheme combines a monochromatic black or white frame with a fluorescent highlight color panel that doubles as a basic tablet! You can write or draw on it using any source of light. Leave yourself temporary reminders or just doodle for fun! Get it here.

Jet Powered Rescue

Jet Powered Rescue

When it comes to lifeguard rescues, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. With this in mind, the ResQ board was designed specifically to cut rescue time in torrential waters which generally take longer to tackle. The power-assisted device is driven by tandem electric motors via water-jet propulsion. Because it’s intended to be used near sunny areas, each is rechargeable on a solar docking station.

What's Hidden in These Handlebars?

What’s Hidden in These Handlebars?

Coincidentally, I just finished a nighttime bike ride and totally needed my lights… only, they were stolen. It happens! If only my lights were built in and secured somehow. That’s precisely the idea behind MagVis. These handy bicycle grips have a built-in light and can be hidden in the hallow handlebar. When the bike isn’t in use, the lights are near invisible! They’re easily recharged with a USB cable so you’re always prepared. Genius!
