The votes are in! A home brewing system, a smart pillow and a portable fitness device are among our favorite projects this week.
The Catalyst Fermentation System gives home brewers the easiest way to ferment, age, prime, and bottle their own batch of craft beer at an affordable price. The 6.5 gallon tank features a built-in valve that allows you to remove sediment and harvest yeast without any messy transfers that increase the risk of contamination. Sounds easy and delicious to us!
The ZEEQ Smart Pillow is a speaker system, snoring abatement tool, and sleep quality monitor all in one, soft package. The ZEEQ has built-in bluetooth speakers that can stream music softly enough that only you can hear it, and it has audio sensors that will vibrate your pillow to encourage you to change positions if it senses snoring. Combine all of that with a sleep quality app and a built-in alarm system and you have one smart pillow.
Monkii Bars 2 is a bodyweight training system that you can take anywhere. Each bar grip contains a suspension strap system that allows you to hang the bars on anything from door frames to tree branches. You can use the bars to perform over 250 exercises and the system comes with an app that will guide you through workouts and provide video instructions.
Have you ever packed too much into your carry-on bag to the point where you can’t zip it shut without doing some crazy maneuver where you force all of your bodyweight onto the bag while zipping it up one-handed? The Marlon solves that problem with a one-click assisted compression system that lets you squeeze everything down and lock it down automatically.
The CTRL XC sunglasses features adaptive LCD technology that automatically adjusts the tint level based on the brightness outside. Typical photochromic lenses can take minutes to darken in response to light but the CTRL XC can tint in less than a tenth of a second. You can set your tint level yourself or let the built-in light sensor set your tint level automatically.
The LIFT Cargo Bike is an augmentation system that transforms your bicycle into a front-loading cargo bike. You can install the LIFT on to any rigid steel, titanium, or aluminum bike with disk or rim brakes. If you want to increase your carrying capacity on the bicycle of your choice, check out the LIFT.
The baKblade is the perfect unassisted back-shaving tool. The ergonomic design allows you to reach all the areas of your back and the safe razor design will provide a close shave while minimizing the risk of accidental cuts. The baKblade isn’t for everyone but it’ll be a lifesaver for those who need it.
The SuperMeat team is raising money to create cultured chicken meat for mass production. Cultured meat is meat grown in a cell culture instead of sourced from animals. The process is animal-friendly and also has a lower environmental impact compared to our current meat production methods. If you like meat but don’t like guilt, check out SuperMeat.
We love minimalist watches and we hate luxury markups. That probably explains why we’re so drawn to the new LINJER minimalist watches. The watch features a Ronda quartz movement and has two dial styles. The dial face may be clean but can still add your own personal touch by customizing the watch with several different strap and buckle color combinations.
Coriolis is a new sci-fi RPG where you crew a space ship and explore The Third Horizon, a collection of star systems filled with powerful factions, ancient ruins, missions, all with the Coriolis space station at the center. Are you a trader, a pilgrim, an explorer, or are you an agent or mercenary? There’s a place for you in Coriolis.
