A Slim Filter That Purifies Water Bottles From the Inside

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 10/22/14 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.

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.

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.

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
