We’ve seen everything from houses and hotels to workshops and offices built out those gigantic shipping containers that we all know and love, but never anything like what Modpools is doing. Modpools makes pools out of shipping containers. The idea doesn’t even seem all that crazy when you actually think about it. Shipping containers are built to stand up to just about anything while being rigid enough to maintain their shape regardless of what the elements throw at them. They’re also movable. Modpools uses that combination of structural rigidity and ease of movement to create a patent-pending pool that can be setup in minutes and can be relocated if you decide you want to change the location. Each pool can be configured to your individual needs so you can have that underwater viewing window you always wanted, along with a removable divider that can easily convert your pool into a hot-tub and back again. As if that isn’t enough, Modpools are built with smartphone controls for temperature, jets and lighting. The pool of the future is here.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
