Cassette Tape Measure

Cassette Tape Measure

We still remember the ticking of the metronome to count beats per measure, but this Cassette Tape Measure is a physical double entendre: it measures distance instead of time.

Cavius Personal Alarm

Cavius Personal Alarm

It may look like a dead man’s switch, but the Cavius Personal Alarm is a lifesaver: it’ll scare crooks by emitting an ear-spltting 130 dB blast, and also doubles as a visual smoke alarm.

Jointmaker Pro R2

Jointmaker Pro R2

Called a paradigm shift in woodworking for being safe as a hand saw yet accurate as a power-tool, The Jointmaker Pro features Japanese saw blades and a hand-crank with pitch adjustor.

Joby’s Gorillamobile stand now supports the 3G/3GS; it still features three flexible legs, a camera adapter, lock ring and adhesive clips, but adds a soft-touch iPhone-only case.

The Holy Grail probably won’t bring eternal life to your paperclips, but pen and pencil robbers will think twice before pillaging your stash of Indiana Jones desktop accessories.

Garage Bell

Garage Bell

There won’t be anyone running out to clean your windows or check your oil, but the Garage Bell works for us: it rings like a good old full service station when you roll into your garage.

Evolution Bike Case

An upgraded version of the framelock folding knives used by the Marines, Warren Thomas’ Strider SMF sports hi-tech materials including carbon fiber and satin-finished titanium.

Sputnik Multitool

Sputnik Multitool

Armed with seven different screwdrivers and an indestructible LED light, the Sputnik looks more like a sci-fi superweapon than a multitool; it actually measures just 5″ long when folded.

GP has an excellent review up of Craftsman’s Cap Wrench Bottle Opener; it’s basically a opener that acts as a fulcrum, albeit weighing a solid 0.64 lbs and made from solid steel.

Flashlight Speed Holster

Flashlight Speed Holster

Make my day (a little brighter): the Flashlight Speed Holster is designed for torch quick draws with left/right-hand mounting, a triple battery compartment and three size adapters.
