Summer days for some of us bring trips and vacations of all kinds. For some it means Disney Land and for others it means roughing it out in the wild for a while. Well for those that are going to be out in the middle of nowhere this Pocket Travel Well might be just the thing to take with you on your journey.
A quick trawl through the SlashGear archives and you'll see that OtterBox have already proved their worth in somewhat extreme circumstances, so when they launch a new product we know they mean business. It's Vincent's new Treo 755p that they've set their sights on this time, offering up not only a way to keep it safe from dust, spills and, um, falling bricks, but to keep using it at the time.
Is all this warm weather leaving you with dreams of camping and frolicking in the great outdoors? Just be careful out there, all those hours hiding away in your basement probably left you pretty white (Scott Barr), you might want to add a little sunblock. Well this Camp Stove Toaster might make camping a little more convenient for you this summer.
Need to use your hose a lot, but don’t really have time to deal with it? Watering systems are becoming very complicated and this system just adds a little to a simple one. The Dual Hose Programmable Timer could make things a little easier when you are working on your yard.
The timer just attaches to your regular outdoor faucet and actually splits the stream of water. It allows you to have two hoses going at once. The great part is the timer, you can program it to turn on and off whenever you want. You can program it for up to seven days in advance. Which really isn’t necessary for the average Joe but if you have a large garden/yard it might be nice.
It would also be nice for people owning very small farms so that they don’t forget to turn off the faucet when filling up a trough. Trust me, that isn’t pretty. Unfortunately it is a little pricey at $129.95. However, it might be worth it for all the water you save.

It’s always nice to have a patio for all of your barbecues. It would seem everyone has them anymore, which might influence some to change theirs up a bit to stand out from the crowd. Well these tiles of concrete could help with just that.
Although the concrete seems plain at first sight, if you stick around to see it rain, it will reveal another side. When this concrete gets wet a cute pattern shows up. In addition to this star pattern I came across a photo of a flowing vine as well. Those are the only two designs I am aware of, but there could be more out there.
These tiles were created as a graduation project and are known as Solid Poetry. If you would like to find pricing you will have to email Frederikmolenschot.

Sprinklers are the one gardening system that haven't changed a lot in the past 20 years. Yes, the more elaborate designs (aka the expensive ones) have evolved a bit. However, the classic that you attach to your hose isn't that much different. The Noodlehead Sprinkler adds a great twist to the design a lot of us grew up with.
