A really brilliant little bit driver… It’s expensive, but I think it’s one of those “I only made a few of these out in my shop, lets see what I can get for them” kind of things. Given that, craftsmanship is probably pretty detailed.
I think this is the smallest laptop in the world that runs a full OS? In any case, it’s tiny… and reports are that it runs pretty damn good given the hardware.
So these guys sent me a prototype to play with it. Essentially, it’s a tiny (keychain form factor) folding knife that uses disposable X-acto blades for the cutting edge. It’s made out of something that feels like plastic but that they call a “Proprietary material” that is stronger than aluminum and lighter than steel. Whatever the case may be, this thing is TINY and LIGHT. It’s also pretty usable for opening boxes and cutting other every day shit.
The originators envisioned this thing being hooked to a keychain. My only concern is that the blade isn’t protected all that well when collapsed and I can totally see myself cutting the hell out of a finger when searching for stuff in my pocket. Otherwise, it’s pretty great… Easy to open, easy to close, and it’s literally as sharp as a hobby blade.
You can follow this project on Kickstarter.
A gigantic Laptop brief that looks pretty decent and is built well… cuz, it’s by Mission Workshop.
It’s like a beach towel that gets really, really compact. My son and I uses these in our camper and they are AMAZING.
The real deal… and probably priced like it too… but wear it long enough and you’ll get your money back.
Crown & Buckle is now selling NATO straps made of bridle leather. Pretty rad.
This flexible solar panel rolls up into a compact form factor. Brilliant idea, but I’ve heard flexible tech isn’t quite figured yet…
