UFO Soap Pumps: Take Me To Your Lever

If you've seen War of the Worlds, then it only makes sense that if an alien race were to visit our planet, they'd be pretty strict about personal hygiene before making contact with humans. Those tiny bacterial organisms all over our hands pose a real threat to extraterrestrials, so what better way to scrub up than… » 10/22/14 5:00pm Wednesday 5:00pm

Compressing Containers Squeeze the Air Out of Your Stored Food

Anyone who's squeezed every last molecule of air out of a Ziploc bag full of leftovers knows that food lasts longer that way.

Casio Taps the 1980s for Its Retro Line of Smart (Looking) Watches

This Minature Hand-Powered Espresso Machine Takes Caffeine Everywhere

As addictive mind-altering substances go, coffee is actually pretty hard to hit up on the move. If you're out of range of a Starbucks, getting a hot, caffeine-rich epsresso generally requires a 20-pound machine and mains electricity, which is exactly the first-world problem this dinky espresso machine exists to tackle. » 10/11/14 3:00pm 10/11/14 3:00pm

A Cutting Board Blade Sharpener Ensures Your Knives Are Ready To Slice

Not only does a dull blade make slicing and dicing more difficult, it can actually make working with knives a little dangerous. An unsharpened blade is more prone to slipping off food than cutting it, and then ending up somewhere painfully unwanted. So Joseph Joseph has created a cutting board with a built-in knife… » 10/09/14 5:00pm 10/09/14 5:00pm

This Jet Engine Is Actually a Grill That Automatically Rotates Your Food

It only makes sense that a barbecue that looks like a jet engine fallen off a plane is called the Jet Grill, but—and some of you might be disappointed in this—it doesn't cook your meats via some high-powered afterburner. The design and functionality is still clever, though, as it harnesses rising heat to keep your… » 10/07/14 5:00pm 10/07/14 5:00pm

A Collar Laser Pointer Is the Dangling Carrot Your Pet Will Never Catch

The only thing better than a toy that keeps your cat and dog occupied for hours is one that requires no intervention on your part. A ball needs to be tossed, a pull toy needs to be tugged, but this laser pointer that clips onto a collar will have your pet chasing, but never catching, that small red dot until they're… » 10/02/14 5:00pm 10/02/14 5:00pm

The Dirty, Dilapidated, and Delightful Water Towers of New York City

New Yorkers: How well do you know your local skyline? Enough to be able to tell these 23 water towers apart, and place them in the borough where they belong? It's a day ending in "y" which means—hey look, Popchartlab has a new print out! This time the team has icon-ized a selection of the city's distinctive (and often… » 9/30/14 5:00pm 9/30/14 5:00pm
