Oru Bay+ Collapsible Kayak

Hard to forget Oru’s original folding kayak, which finally made the sport easily accessible to compact car owners. Oru’s Bay+ improves upon the Bay’s design by adding a variety of new features to boost comfort and convenience, including an adjustable molded-foam seat, ratchet-buckle deck fasteners (think snowboard bindings) for easier setup, additional deck rigging for securing more gear, and a waterproof hatch for stashing moisture-sensitive valuables. It still folds up to the size of an artist’s portfolio and weighs just two pounds more than the thriftier Bay while crucially retaining the same rigid floorboard and durable construction.

Find it at Oru Kayak – $1500

Point Home Security

Unlike most modern home security systems that monitor your home with cameras, motion sensors, and a direct line to the company selling you a pricy monthly package, Point lets you judge the situation yourself in real time. This smart house sitter connects to your WiFi boasts a wide array of sensors, monitoring sound, air (smoke, cigarette fumes, etc), temperature, and humidity. The moment something seems off — the noise of a window breaking, door being kicked in, or extreme humidity potentially related to a leak or flood — Point alerts you via push notification instantly, letting you respond appropriately.

Sure, the difference is but aesthetic, but we can’t help but appreciate the Field Notes’ Ambition Edition notebooks echo the gilded pocket books of yesteryear. Each of the three styles — Olive (ledger lines), Wine (graph paper), and Chocolate (weekly datebook) — is topped with subdued Speckletone covers, gold staples, and matte gold ink for their ledger and graph lines. Afterwards, small batches of these books have their edges smoothed in three passes using an edge gilder which then fuses metallic foil onto them using heat to create an elegant gold edge, all-in-all making for a notebook that’s too gorgeous to miss.

Bike etiquette has it that signalling your turn involves holding out your arm, temporarily sacrificing balance in the hopes of being noticed. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work as well as we’d like to think, particularly in poor light and weather conditions. WingLights, instead, brings the tried and true method employed by every other road vehicle to your bike. Replace your handlebar covers with their magnetic fittings, then stick WingLights onto your handles before riding. One quick tap activates the desired signal, emitting highly visible amber light via LEDs, and another deactivates it after the turn is complete. They’re also designed to be waterproof and shockproof, last 3 months on a single set of batteries, and pop off your bike in an instant to prevent theft, attaching magnetically to the included carry-away keyring.

Find it at Kickstarter – roughly $22+
