More than a few companies have tried to create cool gadgets to give you head’s up displays of whatever you decide is important in your life, but most of them end up just looking like decent digital clocks that display almost unreadable fonts with stock and weather updates. What if you want to know about upcoming calendar appointments, important emails, workouts, social media mentions, when your dog’s outside, or RSS updates? Thanks to its uniquely hackable and customizable software, LaMetric does all of that and more. The 3″ x 9″ package houses an 8×8 block of color pixels for icons and pictures and a a 29×8 block of white pixels for actual information. Navigation between your “tickers” is also easy thanks to the buttons on top, and configuring the display is as simple as launching the app and deciding what you want to know about. If the project raises enough money on Kickstarter you’ll also be able to listen to Internet radio and combine multiple LaMetrics for a longer display.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
