Introducing the JUISIR, the worlds first cold press juicer that requires absolutely no clean up. Continue Reading →

PolarPro Launches Kickstarter Campaign for WAVe: A Battery-Integrated Case for Wireless Headphones

 

Yesterday, PolarPro, developer of products inspired by adventure, kicked off its latest Kickstarter campaign for the WAVe, a  battery-integrated carrying case for wireless headphones. Safeguarded in the WAVe’s Napa leather clad protective shell, most wireless headphone models can be recharged up to 10 times off the integrated battery.  This is genius especially for me for two reasons. First, I use my earbuds or headphones at least 3 hours a day if not more and I hate when I get a low battery because the sound quality goes down the tubes. Second, it will make me actually put the headphones back in their case which I am horrible about doing. Normally I would just throw the headphones in my purse exposed to the elements and the black whole of my purse. Continue Reading →

Ripple: World’s First Wearable Support Network

Even in a world of social media and smartphones sometimes your personal safety is still at risk. In fact I think social media makes it easier to put yourself in danger especially if you are “checking in.” I own mace and a lipstick taser but that only goes so far especially if your alone at night in a parking garage. Today I learned about a new technology that you can wear instead of scrambling through your purse to find mace or the taser.

Ripple Network Technologies, Inc. announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for a first-of-its-kind personal safety device and service, Ripple. Users have on-the-go, nationwide access to Tunstall’s professional monitoring team 24/7. Ripple users can discreetly signal their monitoring team for help with the click of a penny-sized Bluetooth wearable, designed by the creators of 360fly and Misfit Shine. Casey Pittock, President and CEO of Tunstall  Americas, stated, “We are excited to partner with Ripple to offer its customers a true solution to personal safety. Whether walking alone at night, meeting somebody new for the first time, facing immediate danger, or even traveling the country, Ripple’s device and service, utilizing Tunstall’s state-of-the-art response center, keep you one-click from the help you need.” Continue Reading →
