For some reason, most smartwatch makers haven’t realized yet people won’t buy into wearable technology unless it looks good. No one wants to strap clunky nerdlinger watches to their wrists. Motorola gets it thought. They’ve finally released the Moto 360, a round-faced smartwatch that people won’t mind wearing.
The smartwatch will come in black and gray in the beginning for $249. Later this year, Motorola will add two metal band options, each at $299. The stainless steel watch weighs only 1.72 ounces and features wireless charging. A Gorilla Glass screen protects you from random scratches. Other cool features include a simple flick to wake design and activity tracking through Motorola Connect.
Get one at Motorola.com, Best Buy and Google Play.

You know what sucks? Trying to spread cold butter on bread. Usually you end up with clumps of butter randomly spread out over the bread. No bueno. The ButterUp Knife by DM Initiative wants to save you from eating butter clumps. The Australian-based designers discovered having a grater spreads cold butter much better. So, they went ahead and added a serrated edge to the ButterUp Knife. The edge aerates the butter making it easier to spread. Check out their Kickstarter and order one now.

What makes a home classy and inviting to girls are the little touches throughout. No girl wants to see a condom bowl in every room. They want an atmosphere created by stuff like this Hammerhead Shark Corkscrew And Bottle Opener ($15). Pop open a bottle of Chardonnay with this and then pour your wine into a nice wine glass. Hopefully, you aren’t pouring wine into one of your 32-ounce AM/PM plastic cups. That’s turrrrible.

SuicideGirls always puts out good stuff and this one doesn’t look any different.

Master locks have slowly turned into a thing of the past. At least what we’ve accustomed to seeing. Now we have Bluetooth locks looking to fill their shoes. Here’s another one. Noke ($59). It positions itself as a do-all smartphone lock. Users unlock and lock the water-resistant through their smartphone. If you forget your phone, you use a series of short and long presses on the lock shaft to open it. Battery life lasts a year. $59 for a lock eh? Fun toy if you’re a tech head. Head over to their Kickstarter for the deets.

The Japanese came up with another winning idea. This time, artist and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi combined LEGOs and chocolate and made a deliciously edible LEGOs set. Each piece comes in white, dark, pink and milk chocolate. Stack them up like normal LEGOs. Make a LEGO burrito and then eat. The possibilities are endless.

The crowdfunded “Internet of Things” field gets a new entrants every day. This time, Blink, a wireless home security system, has entered the fray. Blink gives you a totally wireless, 100% portable system. Users can feel free to move it anywhere in the home. The only inconvenience may be the lack of direct connection and alerts to the police. The unit will stream HD video to users and send instant alerts; however, the responsibility for alerting the authorities rests on the user’s shoulders. So, basically, it’s like having a stoned roommate watching burglaries in progress sending you text updates, as they sit on the couch and munch on Cheetos.
