Typewriters are great for distraction-free writing — but not so great for digital documents. iPads and laptops are great for keeping your work in the cloud, but like a business trip to Vegas, they're full of distractions. The Hemingwrite is a happy medium. Designed in Detroit, this portable, single-purpose gadget combines a daylight-friendly, high-contrast 6-inch E Ink screen with a high-quality mechanical keyboard to offer all the focus of a traditional typewriter and all the benefits of a modern device. It sports a die-cast aluminum case with a retro design and built-in handle, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE for constant backups to Evernote and Google Docs, a built-in memory of over 1 million pages, and a battery life of over six weeks, so even if you need to take a Thoreau-style retreat, you won't have to pack along a charger.
Whether you're late on your Halloween shopping or simply planning on attending a freaky mask party, Wintercroft Masks have you covered. Instead of wasting energy shipping you a mask, this unique service sells pre-made templates that are downloadable as PDFs. You can either print out the template and use cardboard or, if your printer can handle it, print them directly onto A4 card stock. Then you simply cut out, score, and fold your pieces, line them up using the numbers, tape the edges together, and you've got a striking mask in less time than it takes to drive to the store.
Portable batteries that charge up your various gadgets are nothing new. Nor is adding an emergency LED light to the mix. But the PowerAll Power Bank & Jump Starter goes above and beyond these other options by offering to power something even more vital: your vehicle. With a massive 12,000mAh battery at its core, this portable power solution can perform up to 20 jump starts on a single charge, while offering two USB ports for gadget charging, or alternately up to 120 hours of runtime for the built-in flashlight. A must-have trunk stash for the off-roading gadgeteer.
