The trade-off for the great prices IKEA offers is the fact that you need to assemble everything yourself. A basic table is easy, but get into furniture with drawers and unique elements and those picture-based instructions become infuriating. Designer Adam Pickard thinks the future could hold a better way, and that’s why he developed AssembleAR, an app that displays IKEA instructions in augmented reality. He included animations so that you can see each step being accomplished right next to the actual piece of furniture you’re building. Obviously, without IKEA’s blessing, this is only a concept for now, but we’d gladly pay top dollar to avoid another Allen wrench-related disaster.

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.
