Melon

"Know thyself" isn't just an ancient aphorism or something cool written above the Oracle's door — it's sound advice. Melon ($100) is a new gadget that aims to help you on this quest by measuring your ability to focus. It does this via a wireless headband that uses EEG to measure brain activity, and an app that uses this information to monitor your focus, letting you tag each session with the activity you were doing, environment, behavior, and more. It also doesn't look too ridiculous — it comes in black or white — and is expected to ship in November. [Scouted by Ryan]

  • SanDisk Cruzer Orbit

    Flash drives can be amazingly handy, but their small size can also make them a huge pain in the ass to find. Keep yours handy by making it a SanDisk Cruzer Orbit ($30-$50). This intelligent drive sports a circular design that makes it a snap to attach to key rings, carabiners, lanyards, and binders, and doubles as a protective mechanism for the USB connector. Available in 8, 16, and 32 GB capacities.

  • Bohemian Oil Can Guitars

    Tired of playing the same old axes as everyone else? Consider pickup up one of these Bohemian Oil Can Guitars ($250-$350). They're available in two styles — Boho and Vintage — with the former featuring new parts, and the latter born from antique oil cans and lunchboxes, with parts sourced from used instruments. As you might imagine, the Vintage series tends to be the more interesting, as each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind. No matter which you choose, you'll end up with a fully-functional electric guitar that's far more interesting than your average Strat knockoff.
