A Hydrofoil Surfboard Is the Ultimate Way to Ride the Waves

By Ben on Sun Mar 1 2015 |
Gear | Sport
Foilboards are surfboards with hydrofoil fins built into the bottom. When moving at high speed, the surfer appears to be hovering over the water. Foilboards are especially impressive when used by top surfers, like Laird Hamilton. In this video, he rides one off the coast of Raglan, New Zealand.   After being towed out into the surf, Hamilton flies over the water on his foilboard.

This Umbrella s Builtin Bluetooth Reminds You Not To Forget
Gear | Projects
"Hidden under a cap on the bottom of the umbrella's handle is where you'll find the actual Bluetooth electronics and a replaceable watch battery that should keep it running for about a year or two, depending on how often you need to carry an umbrella. It's designed to maintain a constant wireless connection to a smartphone with a range of about 30 feet, and when that connection disappears, users will get an alert on their phones reminding them they may have forgotten it behind. It's a simple but effective way to make it easier to justify spending a few more bucks on a nice umbrella."
This umbrella is funding up on Kickstarter.

SelfSealing Water Balloons You Never Need To Tie
Gear | Other


Zorbz have a cool solution, automatically sealing water balloons with just a quick tug on the neck.
How the self-sealing technology works exactly is presumably a trade secret, but the Zorbz website makes mention of a special valve hidden inside the neck of each balloon that's activated and sealed with nothing more than a simple tug. There's one caveat, though: a special long and thin filler nozzle has to be attached to a faucet in order to fill the balloons, but that's included with every package and is very easy to install.
