runScribe is a Kickstarter project that aims to create a smarter breed of running wearable

From the Jawbone Up24 to the Samsung Gear Fit, there is a wide range of fitness trackers on store shelves. So if a new piece of technology wants to stand out, it has to offer something above and beyond what’s out there in the wild. Kickstarter project runScribe aims to do just that, providing runners with an unparalleled level of data by accurately tracking the movement of their feet during the gait cycle.  Read More

Rebubl is designed to re-carbonate fizzy drinks that have gone flat

Nothing ruins a glass of soda like taking a sip and realizing it's gone flat in the fridge. What's more, it's a waste of money to then pour the rest of it away down the sink. A new family of devices from Bubl promises to put the fizz back into flat soda, be it at home or away.  Read More

The LeadaHose aims reduce the hassle of cleaning up a muddy dog

If your dog is anything like mine, when it sees a puddle, it jumps right in and soon looks more like a mud-covered warthog than man's best friend. LeadaHose aims to reduce the hassle of cleaning up – and perhaps help cool the dog down in hot weather too – by offering a leash that sports an integrated hose and connector.  Read More

The CrankPump stows within a Shimano Hollowtech axle – other makes and models may follow

If you own a higher-end road or mountain bike with a Shimano drivetrain, then chances are it's got a "secret" storage compartment: the hollow space in the axle, that connects the Shimano Hollowtech cranks.

The SharkStopper PSR is worn on the ankle, and produces orca-like sounds

As regular viewers of a certain TV channel will already know, the orca (or killer whale) is one of the only animals that kills sharks. It would follow, therefore, that sharks generally try to stay away from them. It was with this fact in mind that the SharkStopper Personal Shark Repellent (PSR) device was created. The ankle-worn gadget emulates orca vocalizations, and has reportedly been shown to repel various species of sharks.  Read More

Last month we covered the launch of an interesting Kickstarter project that aimed to jump-start sales of a drone version of a fully-functional hover bike. The quadcopter drone acts as a proof of concept for the full-sized manned vehicle, with proceeds from the crowdfunding effort intended to fuel the continued development of the final vehicle. Gizmag visited the Malloy Aeronautics workshop in the UK to take a closer look at the Hoverbike project.  Read More

The ButterUp butter knife has a built-in grater to make cold butter easier to spread

The Noke unlocks in response to a user-specific Bluetooth signal

There are already door locks and bicycle U-locks that are activated by Bluetooth, but Utah-based FŪZ Designs claims that its Noke is the world's first Bluetooth padlock. Like its house- and bike-specific counterparts, the Noke forgoes a physical key or combination dial, and instead unlocks when it detects the Bluetooth signal from an approved user's smartphone.  Read More

The Lift desk can be adjusted to different heights when you've been sitting down for too l...

If the amount of crowdfunding being thrown at standing desks is anything to go by, it won't be long before the office chair goes the way of the typewriter. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but they are certainly gaining in popularity due to the apparent health benefits of not spending all day on our butts. The latest standing desk to tower over its Kickstarter goal within days of launching is Lift, a stylish wooden unit designed to improve posture and productivity.  Read More
