Instacube

Getting our Instagram photos off our devices and into the real world is the challenge du jour in the tech world, and Instacube ($150) is the latest — and best? — way to do it yet. This Wi-Fi enabled photo frame sports a 600x600 LCD touch display, three buttons — one for power, one for toggling between feeds, and one for liking the current photo — an internal Lithium Ion battery so you can move it wherever you want, and a dead-simple three-step setup process. Perfect for gazing at a live stream of your friends' photos, or vainly admiring your own smartphone camera prowess.

  • 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.
