In this age of podcasting, everyone should have access to a high quality microphone. Not only that, but it should be something customized to recorder’s tastes. If those tastes are the straightforward microphones we’ve been using forever, that’s fine. But also know you could be podcasting into the back of a chrome skull, courtesy of Von Erickson Laboratories. The macabre microphone comes in three color schemes, bright chrome, dark chrome, and sating gun metal and the skull design leans more toward cartoon than anatomically correct. There are cracks along the cranium and the skull stretches a bit to accommodate its microphone, so don’t expect a real person’s head to resemble what Von Erickson has created here, if that puts you a bit more at ease with the idea. There’s also an interesting 50s variety show/90s goth mashup at work here, and it’s not an aesthetic we’d expect to work as well as it does.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
