Okay, so maybe the name needs work, but the idea is brilliant. Using magnetic isointertial exercise technology developed by NASA for astronauts in zero gravity environments, the Handy Gym requires no weights and very little space. The idea behind Handy Gym is to increase convenience while reducing the chance of injury and providing tremendous versatility in a compact package. The conical pulley system can attach to a door frame, around railing or even a sturdy pole. Swap out discs for weighted pulls that range from 2 pounds all the way up to 220 pounds, and perform exercises for virtually every muscle group. There’s even an accompanying app that pairs with the Handy Gym to track pulls and progress. This might just be the most brilliant portable gym in existence, making weights, bands, and all manner of workout doodads obsolete. It’s up on Kickstarter now, and it’s eclipsed its goal more than ten-fold.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
