In late August I spent to weeks traipsing through Europe—on very important work assignments in London, and taking in the local culture of Amsterdam. Being a gadget blogger, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to completely load up my European adventure with every conceivable gadget I could possibly need. I wanted to…
There’s no shortage of smart water bottles on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. But when a brand like Thermos enters the game with a new smart lid for its bottles that tracks hydration and even monitors the temperature of your water, you better pay attention.
Koozies. They keep your hand from getting cold and your beer from getting warm—what could be better? One that keeps your beer cold for much, much longer, that's what.
It's supposed to be a beverage that you slowly slip and savor, but once you've brewed a cup of tea it's a race against the clock—and thermodynamics—to enjoy it while it's hot. A thick ceramic mug helps with that problem, but even better is the double-walled insulated engineering that went into Thermos' new tea tumblers
For all you aspiring inventors out there, here's a reason to keep up on your patent law. Have you heard of thermoses? They're the subject of not one, but two major patent disputes. Only one will engage your sympathy.
You take beer seriously. You want it as pure as it was the day it left the brewery—untainted with light and heat. You want the best beer possible, and you want to take your time drinking it. Do you want a 64-ounce wide mouth vacuum insulated stainless steel growler?
When computer graphics was in its infancy—well before CG dinosaurs appeared—a simple 3D model of a teapot was used for testing software and new rendering techniques. And the simple lines of Normann Copenhagen's Geo thermos is reminiscent of that time when CG was comparatively primitive to what we see on screen today.
The Stelton To Go 2.0 Thermo Cup lures you in with its Danish design, but you'll stay for its drinkability—and not in the Bud Light sense of the word.
People who enjoy soups on the go have long suffered awkward plastic thermoses and missing spoons, but no more. The Black + Blum Thermo-pot provides a stylish steel solution. Also a built-in spoon.
Y'all know my feelings on "Great" Outdoors. But were I to lose my shit and decide to go backpacking, I'd bring the Titanium 350 Kanpai to keep my Hot Toddy toasty for up to six hours (or until I get drunk and go home).
Just when you thought camera lens mugs were dead and buried now that a $1,300 lens had been turned into a thermos, Photojojo's started stocking two new ones—and best of all, they don't have Canon or Nikon branding.
Aluminum cans are convenient! So why would we need a better soda can? Well because even though they're recyclable, they're not really reusable. This soda can is not only reusable, it's also biodegradable. Better for everybody!
I'm guessing when Kai broke his $1,300 Canon 300mm f/4 L lens, his first thought wasn't "oh wow I can now auction it off and donate the proceeds to Australian flood victims!" You can bid for it now. [PetaPixel]
Steins of Science, created by a UC Berkeley physicist, are drinking mugs made from heavy-duty lab flasks. Just think how chilly beer stays when it's wrapped in a vacuum "100,000 times more powerful than that of your average thermos."
When most homes have so many iPod docks there's invariably one being used as a doorstop, it takes an awful lot of innovation to flog a new one to the masses. Will Sony's SRS-V500IP thermos-speaker-like dock work? Undoubtedly, no.
Whatever you do, don't pour coffee from your Nikon lens thermos into the Canon lens mug. You know those lenses aren't compatible without an adapter. Just $24, a few notes less than the Canon lens thermos. [PhotoJoJo via RedFerret]
Available only on pre-order up until now, the Nikon thermos joins its biggest rival, the Canon thermos, in the hallowed hall of camera-lens thermoses that are actually up for purchase. Just $23. [100milligrams via NPR via TWBE]
Remember that amazing Canon lens thermos from a few months ago? Well, It was only a matter of time before we saw the response: a Nikon AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 thermos, available for preorder. Your move, Sony. [Ebay via Nikon Rumors]
Remember this amazing travel mug shaped like a camera lens that Canon handed out to press at the Olympics? Well, now you can pre-order one for yourself for a mere $30 CAD. Sweet! [Vistek via DoobyBrain via The Daily What]
Those press covering the Olympics sure do have a plum life. They bundle off to Vancouver for 16 days of watching ice-skaters embarrassing themselves, and ruthless Russian bobsledders showing their dark sides. Oh, and they get lens-shaped thermoses. UPDATE
