Click & Grow Smartpots

If your green thumb tends to be a bit brown, Click & Grow Smartpots ($60) can surely help you out. These futuristic planters use smart technology to release precise doses of water, fertilizer, and air to the plant cartridge as needed — all you need to do is pop in some batteries and fill the water reservoir. A light on the front will let you know when it's time to replace the batteries or add water, so the only other thing you need to do is find a sunny spot to set them. [Scouted by Jon]

  • Drobo Mini

    Need a bunch of redundant data storage, and need it to go? The Drobo Mini ($650) has you covered. Built from metallic carbon fiber with a soft touch finish, this sandwich-sized box holds up to four 2.5" drives — giving you a total possible capacity of 3TB — offers both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connectivity, and, like the company's full-sized boxes, uses BeyondRAID technology to ensure that your data is safe, no drive configuration wizardry required.

  • Hovding Invisible Bike Helmet

    Protect your head and your hair by donning the Hovding Invisible Bike Helmet (4,000 Krona; roughly $600). This unique helmet serves as an airbag for cyclists, wrapping around your neck like an extra collar and using a gas inflator to pop the collar open and inflate the crazy, alien-looking airbag in roughly 0.1 seconds. Accelerometers and gyros detect accidents, sending 10 seconds of movement data to a black box for further analysis. Like any respectable modern gadget, it also features a rechargeable battery and charges/upgrades over USB.
