Spiro Bouncer Is A Teeter Totter That Spins And Bounces

Baby, it’s cold outside. And on some days, it takes me longer to get my three young kids dressed and ready for the cold than the amount of time we will actually be outside. But we must. Get. Out. Fresh air and energy burned are needed for my sanity and their moods. On the days that are too cold or too wet to be outside for long, I need indoor solutions to keep my kids active. The Spiro Bouncer is just the solution.

Want A Highly Portable Solar Lantern?

We have become so used to having light at the flip of a switch that it can be a little alarming to find that the power has gone out. It can even be a little challenging when we go camping and know that we are going to be dealing with darkness. With a Solar Air Lantern we can be prepared to light things up again in a different way with an array of LED lights and a reflector.

The Raptor Is Like No Other Football (Because It's More Like A Plane)

There is no official record of the longest football (American football) throw. People point to NFL quarterbacks, like Vinny Testaverde, who've chucked the ball 80-90 yards, but has anyone thrown a football 100 yards? If they've thrown the Raptor Football, they have.

Thanksgiving--that time of year when we give thanks for the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie with which we stuff our faces.

These five products honor this great American holiday and the sports and fitness fans who celebrate it.

Nestle Working On "Exercise In A Bottle"

What if you could get the benefits of exercise without stepping foot in a gym, on a track, a court, without waking up early to get in your run, make your yoga class, go for that bike ride? What if you could just drink something and get the kind of calorie burn you would if you put in a couple thousand meters on the rower? Nestle scientists may not be far off from developing that "magic potion."

Belt-Scooter: Ride It, Then Wear It

It's a belt...no, it's a scooter. Nope. It's both. Corny Superman references aside, the Collapsible Belt-Scooter, designed by Adam Torok, is genius. It provides you with a means of transportation quicker than walking, and when you get where you're going, the scooter transforms into a belt, so you don't have to worry about finding a place to stow it.

Hendo: World's First Hoverboard (No Jokes This Time)

Remember the HUVr? It was supposed to be the first hoverboard (like the one in Back To The Future), but it turned out to be a prank, and Tony Hawk helped dupe us with his appearance in HUVr's video. Well, Tony just made an appearance in another hoverboard video, but this time it's no joke.

Fight The Cold With Booze Smuggling Mittens

Alcohol concealing wearable items are not a new trend, but they're often lacking the functionality of the original item. The ability to covertly smuggle alcohol is of course the priority, but serving dual functions would be far more practical, don't you think? This winter, a greatly innovative solution has been delivered that has seasonal benefits.
