Reading marketing copy like “the simplest and most intuitive product ever” in relation to an electronic device that interfaces wirelessly with other electronic devices seems a little misleading at first. What happened to all the bells and whistles and lights and knobs we’re used to seeing on these sorts of things? What about the huge subwoofers and the .1 Dolby notations that we stopped paying attention to years ago? Turns out you actually don’t need any of it. The designers behind Kickstarter’s newest gem, the Hidden Radio & Bluetooth Speaker have developed a speaker and bluetooth system that is as easy to operate as a jar of spaghetti sauce. Twist to turn it on, and then pull it up to increase the volume. There’s also a 3.5mm jack and radio built in to the little speaker that somehow also gets 30hrs of life on a single charge. Actually, this is probably easier than spaghetti sauce.
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.
