Want To Wear A Handy Tool For Small Measurements?

One of the hallmarks of great design is a clever marriage of form and function. This Measure Ring is a blend of a great piece of jewelry with a tailored look and a way to make small measurements. The face of the ring is an inch across and the cut away pieces and sides are the fractions of an inch. With this ring you can measure things easily on the run without having to pull out a tape measure or ruler.

Turn Your Treadmill Into A Workspace With SurfShelf

Recently, I've been profiling products like the TrekDesk and FitDesk, which incorporate a workspace into a piece of fitness equipment. This is a great concept--working fitness into a sedentary job. The SurfShelf allows you to do this, as well, just on a smaller, less expensive scale.

Meet Vladimir Putin, Russia's Premier Car Tester & Promoter

Would you drive a canary-yellow Lada Kalina Sport sedan hundreds of miles across some of the most desolate stretches of Siberia? No, you wouldn't... but you're not Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Biostar's IDEQ-T1 Mini PC Packs USB Audio, Quad Core CPU

By incorporating a separate audio controller within its new barebone nettop, Biostar's IDEQ-T1 “K” model can play host to a number of audio enhancements and features that normally aren't found in this class of PC, including – inevitably – karaoke software.

Want An Easy Way To Replace A Button On The Run?

Buttons have been around on clothing for more than 4,000 years. After all that time they still manage to fall off at the most inopportune moment when there is not a needle and thread anywhere nearby. Even if there are, you don't always have the time necessary to thread a needle and get sewing before you will be late for an important meeting. That is why a couple of designers have come up with The Clip Button.

Amazing Alchemy: Innovative Wind-Reactive Ink Alters Clothing Color

Read all about London-based  artist/alchemist, Lauren Bowker, and her special material exploration studio known as the UNSEEN. Here she has created a unique wind-reactive ink that changes color when exposed to the capricious fluctuations of both the wind and the human body.

Want A New Way To Hang Up Your Keys?

If there is one thing that most of us have in common it is the innate ability to lose our keys. Sure, you can hang one of those standard key holders by the door, but that doesn't always work when you stumble in the door dead tired from a long day of work and running errands. Trying to get your key ring onto one of those hooks can be a real challenge. The Key Target offers a different option that allows you to just toss your keys at the key holder and there they stay.

Shenzhen Apec APM-D01: USB Flash Drive-Sized Windows PC

Barely bigger than a Chromecast, this minuscule computer-on-a-dongle impresses with its full-fledged Windows 8.1 compatibility and quad-core Intel processor. It's difficult to imagine an even smaller machine existing that can boast the same credentials, at least with today's technology.

Build Strength, Improve Acceleration And Work On Endurance With Keiser Air300 Runner

It's really hard for a machine to mimic a sprint. Treadmills come close, but it's hard to change pace and run all-out on a treadmill. Ellipticals confine you to a limited range of motion in your stride. However, the Keiser Air300 Runner gives you a range of motion in your stride and allows you to change your pace.

Want Your Ashes Launched Into Space?

Space may be the final frontier but for your dearly departed it can also be one last wild adventure. With the help of Mesoloft, the ashes of your loved one can be carried through the atmosphere to the near reaches of space via balloon. From there you can release the ashes and let your loved one drift slowly and gently back to earth on the wind, rain, and snow to replenish the earth with the nutrients remaining in the them.
