Tiko unibody 3D-printer keeps it simple and cheap

Tiko is a small, unibody 3D-printer that is designed to be simple and user-friendly. 3D printers are revolutionizing the "maker" scene, but the numerous selections can be complicated and expensive. If you want to create basic plastic designs on the cheap and don't have space for a complicated printing setup, then Tiko might be for you. Best of all, Tiko can be yours for only $179 USD, but that's only the price for Kickstarter pledges. The price could go up when Tiko enters the market, but its creators haven't specified a retail price yet.

Neobase gadget offers a private social network

Neobase gadget offers a private social network

Social networks have their benefits, but for some the downsides -- lack of privacy chief among them -- is too big of a downside to risk it. The folks behind the new Neobase have come up with something they bid as a solution. This "Private Network Device", as they call it, allows the owner to create their own private social network that is entirely within the owner's control. There's no cloud involved; all the content on the Neobase's social network -- which can be shared with others -- is stored on the device itself, cutting out all the middle men and, theoretically, proving more secure because of it.

Retouch3D lets your put the finishing touches on 3D prints

Retouch3D lets your put the finishing touches on 3D prints

The democratization of 3D printing has made many a dream and idea come true, but for all the fairy tale stories, some things are kept out of the media. Yes, 3D printing does seem like magic, almost instantly giving physical existence to otherwise digital only objects, but the product that comes out of the printer is rarely the polished finished product you get to see in the end of the process. There's still a lot of cruft to be cut out first, a tiresome and ugly process that Retouch3D wants to cut out as well.

Appkettle smart kettle lends mobile control

Appkettle smart kettle lends mobile control

Appkettle is a smart kettle that allows users to set the temperature, monitor the process, and more when warming up water for their morning coffee or afternoon soup. It works, as you'd expect, in conjunction with a mobile app lending hands-off control of the kettle, which can be left on its own in the kitchen (after the water is added, of course). The design itself is modern with a shiny outer shell, but conservative enough to blend in with most kitchens with its round shape and matte black base. According to its maker, this is the first kettle that offers volume and temperature control in real-time on a mobile device.

Emvio stress-reducing smartwatch adds zen to your life

Emvio stress-reducing smartwatch adds zen to your life

Emvio is the a smartwatch that is the antithesis to practically every other smartwatch on the market. "Emvio" means "to live" in Greek, and its designers want you do just that with their new, stress-tracking smartwatch. Emvio isn't the first stress-tracking smartwatch, but it aims to go above and beyond as it measures your stress level on a scale of 1 to 10 and notifies you when your stress level raises. Sure, we all notice when we fly off the handle, but sometimes we operate unaware we're pumping cortisol in a giant negative feedback loop of stress.

Brik Case is a LEGO-like case for your laptop

Laptops are usually hefty investments, and wise buyers protect their investments. For a notebook, that generally involves buying a laptop case, which are available in many different varieties: leather, plastic, and just about everything between. A plastic brick version isn't commonly one of those options, however, as it's not the first medium you'd consider using to protect a gadget. It was bound to become a reality at some point, though, and thanks to the Jolt Team, it now is. Brik Case is a plastic-brick case that looks like it is made from LEGOs, and that can be customized using other plastic bricks.
