We love bikes. We love music. We would love to be able to combine the two of them so we could feel like Peter Griffin in that episode of Family Guy when his life has its own soundtrack, but it never seems to be that easy. Earbuds fall out. Studio cans block out all traffic noise, which is a problem when a hook-and-ladder is barreling at you at 30 miles an hour and you don’t have a death wish. Bluetooth speakers never stay put, or they get stolen. The SleekSpeak project on Kickstarter is…

If you choose to conceal your tells during a game of poker with a pair of neon plastic Wayfarers, these are probably the cards you should be playing with.

We all have sensitive files that never need to see the light of day. Maybe it’s blackmail information on your boss, or a top-secret chicken recipe or photographic evidence of the location of all your special friend’s moles, but you don’t want those things floating around on the open Internet. You throw it all on an encrypted jump drive because then you have hardware and software control of the device. Shortly thereafter (trust us, we’ve been there), you forget the password. This happens a few times and inevitably you use something like “Password1″ just so you don’t forget. That’s one of the first things a hacker will guess. This 8GB Voice Authenticating USB Drive prevents that from happening by unlocking your secret files with your voice. This obviously makes it difficult to use if you’re sick and/or in a room with anyone else, but there’s standard typing for those occasions.

Mornings suck. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. The first thing you hear are those soul-crushing beeps of your alarm clock. Just the sound of your alarm at any point during the rest of your day will send a shiver down your hunched over spine. The guys at HabitCo are trying to change that whole “Maybe I can just call out sick?” feeling with Day Maker. We have to admit, the alarm-meets-toaster design is a bit bizarre and quirky, but if it helps us get the day going, we’re down. Set the alarm on your iPhone in either the standard iPhone clock or Day Maker app and push it down like you would a piece of whole wheat. When it pops up, so will you (or snooze by pushing it back down like if you wanted some extra burnt toast). No word yet on how it cooks our bacon.

The cool new Illuminated Pool Barstool is a submersible pool stool that illuminates for nighttime mood lighting. It features a four-color LED array that can be set to flash, fade or lock into a color of your choice, acts like a giant screw that adjusts the seat height from 24” to 36” H, and has a remote to control it poolside. Unfortunately it doesn’t include a pool bar to pull it up to.
