The Zero Breeze Portable Air Conditioner Keeps You Cool Outdoors

Lord knows it’s been hot this summer. On some of those blazing days, air conditioning can be a lifesaver. But what about when you need to be outside and there seems to be no respite from the heat.

Consisting of rotary compression refrigeration technology and Dupont R-134a refrigerant (which is reportedly environmentally- and ozone- friendly), the new device…

This Innovative Portable Air Conditioner Is Multifunctional

Considering the heat wave that just (mercifully) finished last week, if you didn’t have an air conditioner or a fan, you’re probably getting one now just in case we get hit with the heat again. But considering that temperatures are rising because of global warming, it may feel wasteful to use an air conditioner (and all that energy) for just a few days. A new start-up has you covered.

Protect Your Hearing With The New Aegis Pro Headphones

We’re told over and over again that listening to music too loud, particularly through headphones, can leave significant long-term damage on our hearing. Yet we still crank up the volume when we’re out walking through the city or taking the subway. Part of this is understandably to block out the sounds around you in order to actually hear your music and part of it is just so we can get in the groove. Either way, it ends up becoming dangerous over time. So what’s a…

Travel to the Future with the New Hoverboard

Do you remember in Back to the Future 2 when Marty McFly rode on a cool, futuristic hoverboard?

While this invention is not exactly what the creators of Back to the Future came up with, the design is pretty close.

Prepare For A Great Night’s Sleep With The Snooz

If you live in an urban area, getting to sleep can sometimes be difficult. The city and its sounds never really sleep themselves, so trying to drift off through them is a special kind of struggle, one that is counterintuitive to the process of trying to sleep in the first place. Sure, you can put in some ear buds, but they often feel unnatural and eventually uncomfortable, often resulting in sore ears when you wake up. So what do you do when you need to…
