Everyone has their limit. They know if they hit x amount of beers in one drinking session, it’s all over. At that point, it isn’t easy to remember just how many you threw back after you come to in the morning. The Beer Tracker Bottle Opener saves you from counting empty bottles and reliving the messy evening. Not only does it perform the role of a standard bottle opener, it also keeps track of the number of bottles you’ve opened in a session. It’s like a tiny plastic version of your mom, wife, teetotaler younger brother…you get it. $7

The BioLite Stove is designed to "make cooking on wood as clean, safe and easy as modern fuels while generating electricity to charge phones, lights and other electronics off-grid." The BioLite team explain:
"Open wood fires are inefficient, wasting potential energy and creating toxic smoke due to incomplete combustion. Carefully designed stoves that use fans to blow air into the fire can dramatically improve combustion. However, such stoves require small amounts of electricity to power their fans and most people who cook on wood are without grid or battery access.
BioLite stoves solve this problem by converting a fraction of the fire’s thermal energy into electricity to power our combustion improvement system. Excess electricity is made available to users for charging small electronic devices such as mobile phones, LED lights, GPS and many others."

Are you ‘sick’ of losing track of your important papers, photos, and keepsakes? Have you come down with a bad case of clutter, and you’re aching for a remedy? This adorable apothecary jar filled with cute capsules is just the cure for what ails you! Each grey and white plastic ‘pill’ breaks apart to become two separate push pins, and the glass bottle keeps them safely stored until they’re needed. Accompanied by a fun, foamy figurine, this pin set is just what the desktop doctor ordered. Link here.

How fun is this? The marketing team behind the movie Chronicle built three RC planes in the shape of human beings and flew them around New York City to create the illusion of superheroes zooming around iconic landmarks. Say what you will about this being a viral marketing ploy, I would much rather watch this than a 60-second trailer on TV. Well done. And also, I want one.

Developed by a start-up company Hatch & Co., the Skinny is a leather iPad 2 case that also integrates the world’s slimmest and lightest wireless keyboard. Unlike other iPad keyboards that use thick chiclet keys, the SKINNY wireless keyboard breaks the mold with its unique use of touch technology.’ (viaPCLaunches)

Let’s face it: we’ve all had a dry spell here and there. Except me. I’ve got more side-pieces than I can handle. And that’s because there’s more than enough of me to go around and everyone wants some. But maybe you’re not me. Maybe you need a little something-something to get you through those tough times when no one wants anything to do with your privates. If you’ve got an iPad and no self respect, then you’re in luck! Fleshlight has confirmed the production of the FLESHiPad Holder. I’m gonna give it to you straight — it’s an iPad case with an attached fake coochie (vagina, I mean vagina). The kit includes pre-recorded photographs/videos designed specifically for the product. Now I know what you ladies are thinking: is there a PENUSiPad Holder for us too? I don’t know. But you could always tape a banana to your laptop. Source
