Cool Tools

Dahon Speed D7 folding bicycle

Of all the ways to navigate cities, I find I get to know them best on a bicycle: not too slow, not too fast, just high up enough to observe, and quasi-meditatively conducive to thought. In the past three years, I’ve got around Los Angeles primarily by bike, not just as a means of running […]

Finn Wallet

Carrying an iPhone or an iPod Touch around is always a delicate matter. There are many cases designed to offer protection as you transport these iDevices. We tend to keep them in our pockets or in purses. While cases do protect the sides for the most part, I want protection for the Gorilla Glass face. […]

Work Sharp WSKTS Knife and Tool Sharpener

Any chef will tell you, a sharp knife is the most important tool in the kitchen. I have tried many different types of sharpening methods, from stones to steels, electric to manual. Stones are hard to use because you need to maintain a very consistent angle while using it, and other gimmicky sharpening tools are […]

Wire Rake Poop Scooper for Grass

Wire Rake Poop Scooper for Grass The dreaded poop-scooping chore. I’ve been using a variety of tools for this job over the years but nothing holds a candle to the Wire Rake Scooper (designed specifically for Grass) on Amazon. I’ve had it for about six months now and have to say that it is the […]

What’s in my bag? – Eric McClellan

Eric McClellan spends his days working with talented people creating advertising for Ford as Executive Creative Director of Content and Brand Entertainment at Team Detroit. In his spare time he’s obsessively doodling in pursuit of the perfect Superman symbol, making to­do lists, and communicating with his 14 year old via Instagram and Snapchat. His blog, […]

Avalanche Roof Snow Rake

I’ve used the Avalanche Snow Rake for the past three Duluth, Minnesota winters and it’s the best snow removal tool I’ve ever used. Old school roof rakes were clumsy, hard to use and damaged shingles. Climbing around on a snow covered roof is no treat either. The Avalanche Snow Rake makes quick work of snow […]

Nuance Wine Finer

This is my girlfriend’s cool tool — not sure how long she’s had it but I’ve been using hers for a couple months. It’s a multipurpose wine tool. It fits snugly down inside the neck of a wine bottle (never had it pop out), allowing you to pour without drips. At the same time, it’s […]

Index Knobber, Backnobber, and Jacknobber

I’ve been using products from Pressure Positive for about 20 years. They are great for self massage. I especially enjoy the Index Knobber, the Backnobber, and Jacknobber. The Original Index Knobber lets you apply deep pressure to muscles, and tendons, without stress to the fingers or hands. The Orignal Backnobber (photo above) is solid chrome […]

Addi Turbo Knitting Needles

I’ve been knitting for almost 50 years. Addi Turbo knitting needles are the best: smooth, sleek and well-made.They are made in Germany. I can’t buy them often, but when I need a new size for something, I am willing to pay their premium price. Quality and a size range that can’t be beat. Mostly they […]

HUB-ee Wheels

Creative Robotics’ HUB-ee wheels are just what they sound like: hub wheels, where the motor is contained inside the wheel’s hub to save space on your robot. Hub wheels are great for complicated builds like rack-and-pinion steering rigs where you want wheels that both drive the robot as well as turn to steer. They also […]

Tingsha Cymbals

I’ve used these humble, handheld cymbals for two years running, and they have become an invaluable part of my meeting facilitation toolkit. I often convene large groups for collaborative working sessions, brainstorming exercises, PechaKucha presentations and the like. When trying to keep 50-60 creative people to a fixed schedule, transitioning from one activity to the […]
