SNAP Furniture Legs

Make your own table from just about any relatively flat surface or board with SNAP furniture legs, a set of two, three, or four colorful & versatile steel wire legs. Affixing SNAP is simple: pull back on the flexible portion, slip it over a board, then release and cinch its cable, forming a solid table capable of bearing loads of up to 154 lbs. Otherwise, SNAP will optimally work with boards that are 0.4- to 1.6-inches thick (but can work with irregular surfaces as well, such as a bike wheel), is easily stackable to make shelves, and creates highly portable furniture, letting you take the table apart and pack it in the trunk of a car.

Check it out at Kickstarter – $60+

Pikaplant Tableau

Responsibilities and general forgetfulness can make keeping plants tricky. Conversely, the Pikaplant Tableau makes it so easy even frequent travellers can do it. Tableau is composed of three ceramic pots, a glass reservoir, and a steel base, funnelling water from the latter to the capillary fabric lining the base and in turn to the plants, as they require it. When all the water is sucked up from the fabric the reservoir is tapped for more water, mimicking the wet-dry cycle in nature all while requiring zero electricity to run. And with up to 6 weeks of watering on a single fill and the fact that remaining water levels are available at a glance, the risk of your plants drying up before a refill is essentially nil.

Hit up Kickstarter for details – roughly $140

Light Phone

Smartphones are ludicrously distracting. Occasionally disconnect with the Light Phone, a 4mm slim, credit card-shaped phone that does nothing but make and receive calls. Each Light Phone includes its own SIM card, comes pre-charged with 500 minutes, and includes an app to use with your existing phone for forwarding your normal number. It also comes unlocked, lasts for up to 20 days on a single charge, and stores up to 10 speed dial numbers in memory. And, optimistically, it can even slip away inside your wallet, freeing up another pocket.

With their large, power-hungry displays and small batteries, most smartphones struggle to run for more than a day on one charge. The Android-running YotaPhone 2 takes a different route to extending battery life, instead combining both a traditional LCD screen with a power-sipping Electronic Paper Display, or EPD, on the flip side. This touchscreen-capable EPD makes possible 5 days of reading time on a charge and also doubles as a customizable dashboard to show you your email, music, calendar, stocks, twitter feed, and more at a quick glance. YotaPhone 2 also comes unlocked, includes all expected modern connectivity and features (plus GLONASS), and sports durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on both sides.
