HandyShell Case for Ipad

Endlessly useful and amazingly simple, the HandyShell case for iPad® 2 features a multi-function handle that gives you a firm hold wherever you go. Designed around a strong hinge to hold it firmly in place, HandyShell’s handle can be used as a thumb ring for a one-handed grip or as a stand in landscape or portrait mode—even hang it on a wall! And with its hard-shell construction and extended bevel, this versatile iPad 2 case is every bit as protective as it is handy and fun to use.


Yike Bike

With fuel prices soaring like never before, it is urgent to find alternatives in terms of mobility.

These alternatives are to have cars more environmentally friendly, more accessible transport or other means as more urban bicycles.

It is this last point that we offer a new form of mobility. Come meet her …

Admittedly, there are already many types of bicycles that fold completely, but even so, some do not cease to be heavy and not very portable.

The alternative appears for the firm hand YikeBike Ltd and comes in the form of a bicycle at least original. With a small electric motor can reach a top speed of 25 km / h with a range of 10 miles without recharging.

The main engine is not its not even his speed, but its main design driving position and size that assumes when fully folded. This almost equals the size of their 20 inch wheel.

If purchased as in carbon, is very robust and lightweight, weighing just more than 10 kg.What is of no slight is the price of around € 2600 or R $ 5,952.00, but you can always opt for the heavier version, aluminum, for just under € 1,400 or U.S. $ 3205.00.

Exotac Titanium Water Bottle

The Ti Water Bottle is constructed of 100% Grade 2 titanium from three separate pieces welded together. Empty, the TiBottle feels like it weighs next to nothing. The exterior is bead blasted to create a very nice and grip-able satin finish. The logo comes in two finishes, mirrored (as you see) and a sandblasted ‘subdued’ finish. The bottle can hold 22oz/650mL of liquid.

You can choose from the titanium cap (you see here) or the more classic plastic cap most water bottles have. The titanium cap screws into the bottle easily and has (as you would expect) an o-ring to keep the liquid you are carrying, inside the bottle. This cap also has a d-ring welded to the top so that it can be clipped to your pack for easy transport. Compared to the metal cap, the plastic cap, while not adding any greater weight, increases the length of the overall water bottle by an inch. The plastic loop cap can also be clipped to your pack as well. Being metal to metal, screwing the titanium cap into the bottle is relatively noisy and will definitely take you out of stealth mode.

One of the cool abilities of the TiBottle water bottle, is its ability to heat up liquids over a heat source. This is a definite plus for those outdoor and backpacker types. While you (unless you were in a pinch) can not cook a full meal, the TiBottle enables you to boil water and, more importantly, make coffee….. On our kitchen stove top, the Gadgeteer Kid and I, not only got water boiling but made a mighty fine batch of Starbucks VIA coffee. Below is a 7 minute video using a TiBottle for heating liquids from the Exotac website:

I really like Exotac’s titanium water bottle. As I said at the beginning of this review, as water bottles go… awesome. But (once again) as water bottles go, its extremely pricey as well. $75-$85 is definitely a premium to pay for something to carry liquid around in. But unlike many other water bottles, the TiBottle can be put over an open flame and is extremely tough (I thought about driving over it with my truck to see if it would survive but decided against it….I like it too much). Exotac’s KISS design and materials choice, makes for a useful, lifelong product. So, despite it’s cost, I do recommend the Exotac titanium water bottle especially if your lifestyle mandates the need for the ultra-durable.


G1 Glass Pool Table

This is one pool table that you don’t come across everyday. Brainchild of Craig Nottage, who designed it as an assignment during his industrial design courses at the University of South Australia, the G-1 Glass top pool table displays an innovative amalgamation of style and technology. Replacing the traditional slate or cloth surface, the revolutionary pool table boasts a patented transparent resin-playing surface, the Vitrik, which is available in both transparent and frosted finishes and a variety of colors. The see-through pool table comes with an integrated ball return mechanism inside its modern metal frame and creates an astonishing ‘floating on air effect,’ as balls glide smoothly and quietly on the surface. The transparent pool table, priced at $39,900 Australian dollars (U.S. $25,150), also includes BCA-specification pockets and K-66 bumpers.
