Getting your space to the optimum level of humidity shouldn't be a pain — finding the perfect setting, checking water levels, and frequent refills become a thing of the past with the Roolen Breath Humidifier. Completely controlled with just one button, you can set Breath to one of three modes: low for up to 24 hours of moisture, high for up to 12 hours in a very dry environment, or an auto mode that lets it determine the appropriate amount of moisture for you. And with an elegant design available in white or black, a small footprint, and quiet efficient operation, you'll barely even notice the device as it steadily improves your environment.
Made as a robotics kit for the everyman, the EZ Robot Kits make building, customizing, and programming your own robot accessible to anyone — even if you don't have a degree in engineering or computer science. With three chassis available (a hexapod, a humanoid, and a tracked roller) you can build on each with modular components like arms, legs, servos, sensors, and cameras. Their EZ-Builder software lets you construct robots digitally before assembling them, and write programs with a simple-to-use interface, letting you share your creations across the community. And for those feeling a little more adventurous, you can even 3D-print pieces for your robot at home.
These days it seems like everyone is brewing beer at home — so it's a bit surprising that far fewer people have gotten into home wine-making — perhaps just because it's more trouble than it's worth. But with the Miracle Machine, you can make your own wine at home without all the fuss. This small, attractive machine functions as a countertop appliance, and using inexpensive grape concentrate, yeast, and other ingredients available through Miracle Machine, you can make great wine in only days. Built-in sensors operated by an Arduino micro-controller keep the fermentation process on track, while available iOS and Android apps let you control and monitor your winemaking during every step.
There's nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly-cooked bacon. Now you can enjoy that experience every morning with Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell The Bacon. This simple device plugs into the bottom of your iPhone, and works in parallel with a specially-designed app to release the unmistakable scent of premium bacon at the selected time, making everyday — whether it's a work day or the weekend — a little bit easier to face.
Whether you're looking to restock your home bar after a raucous party or simply want a great glass of wine when you get home, Minibar Delivery has you covered. This slick iPhone app lets you browse a solid selection of wine and spirits, make your selections, and have your order delivered from the local liquor store to your door in 60 minutes or less. The good news? There's no delivery charge. The bad news? As of right now, it's only available in select areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Listening to music should be simple — no setup, no worrying about where to plug things in, no connecting multiple devices, and no fumbling around trying to come up with the perfect song or playlist to suit the moment. And with the Cone Music Player, listening is as simple as it gets. This beautiful wireless speaker system features eight hours of battery life, and lets you play music by just touching the front (press it again to pause, or twist the grill to queue up a new song). It works with a range of music services, and learns your musical preferences the more you listen. And if you want to listen to your own music, Cone also supports Airplay, so you can play through your Mac or iOS device.
Qi wireless charging is great if your phone has it. What's not so great is trying to find the hotspot on your charger, so that you don't set your phone down and walk away, only to come back to find a dead device. The Tylt Vu Wireless Charger eliminates this issue with multi-coil free positioning technology that lets you drop your phone down — in either orientation — and have it charge just as rapidly as a wall charger without the need to fool with the placement.
Ever since the iPhone debuted in 2007, people have been looking for a good way to integrate it into their cars. Some used dash mounts, some rely on Bluetooth, but nearly every option relied on you using the iPhone itself. But no more. Arriving on select models this year, Apple CarPlay integrates your iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S with your car's existing controls and infotainment screen, letting you use Siri, the car's touchscreen, or even various knobs and controls to do things like get directions, make and answer calls, send and receive texts, and play music, all while enjoying an Apple-designed, iOS-like interface that's worlds better than the built-in mess you're used to.
Odds are, you care just as much about how a product looks as you care how well it works — and the Grain Audio Passive Bookshelf Speakers combine the aesthetics of solid wood with the performance of professional-grade speakers. They use FSC certified solid walnut in each of their speakers, so no two look exactly alike, while also adding heft and helping contribute to their acoustics. A solid MDF enclosure helps your audio sound excellent each time you listen, regardless of your musical preferences. Each speaker features 25 to 75 watts of power and a five-and-a-quarter inch mid bass woofer with neodymium magnets and CCAW voice coils.
It's not always easy to find an audio system that looks good in your room. But you know what nearly always looks cool? A bulldog. So why not combine the two? At least, that appears to have been the thinking behind the AeroBull. This unique speaker features a 5.25-inch subwoofer, dual 2.25-inch satellites, 100W of total power, an iPod/iPhone dock, Bluetooth for wireless streaming, NFC, and a line-in for other audio sources. But the best part? It looks like an all-black dog wearing sunglasses — and that will match anything.
Life doesn't just happen within the confines of a rectangular frame — plenty happens on the periphery as well — and that's where normal video cameras fall short. But with the 360Fly Camera you're not just limited to what's in front of you, it films in 360 degrees horizontally, and 240 degrees vertically, capturing the entirety of life around you. With the ability to attach to helmets, tripods, bikes, boards, and more, it's the perfect way to preserve all of life's memories. And since it's compatible with both iOS and Android, and works with apps for both, you can view video as it's captured, instantly edit it, and share it on the web with your friends.
Let's face it: even the best smartphone flashes are no match for a dedicated light source. Now you can add one to your iPhone with the Ember Night Photography Tool. Sporting an array of 56 LEDs with a built-in diffuser and multiple available color filters, this handy light/case will let you take much improved nighttime photos with your 5 or 5S. A removable top piece lets you use any add-on lenses you might have, and don't worry about draining your battery, either — thanks to a built-in power source, you can take pictures for hours without a problem.
