Going back to the drawing board in product design is something we hear all the time, but never really seems to hit as close to home as it does with The Bicymple. Scalyfish Designs has literally reimagined the bicycle from the ground up and The Bicymple is the result. With the removal of the chain (yeah, seriously), the number of moving parts and the overall complexity of the transportation contraption as a whole are greatly reduced. The result is a direct-drive, freewheeling hub that joins the crank arm axis with the rear-wheel axis. The wheels don’t always have to be in line with each other, which means you can ride it crab style and turn like London cabs do. Honestly, until we get to pedal one of these things we’re still going to be skeptical, but the idea is cool regardless.
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.
