This scoop spoon uses liquid thermal energy to easily scoop through rock-solid ice-cream

Imagine how good an ice-cream scooping spoon would have to be to win a Global Innovation Award. With a special heat-retaining liquid inside its handle, and a thermally-conductive alloy structure internal structure that guides the heat to the scoop’s rim, the ScoopTHAT II can quite naturally carve through that solid block of ice-cream with zero fuss. Relying on just the physical transfer of heat, ScoopTHAT II slices through frozen cream like a hot knife through butter, but without any electricity or batteries… just good old science.

The scoop comes with a non-stick concave scoop-head, and a special metallic rim that pulls thermal energy from the handle, giving you absolutely effortless scoops, no matter how frozen your ice-cream is. The ice-cream plops off the scoop-spoon effortlessly too, thanks to the non-stick finish, giving you the most perfect looking ice-cream spheres ever… perfect enough to warrant a Global Innovation Award!

No Cold Coffee, Only HOT!

Regular YD-ers know about my coffee addiction and how I love my cuppa joe by my side. According to my survey there are two kinda tea/coffee drinkers, ones who love their brew piping hot (or a particular temperature) and ones who prefer tepid. The Nano Heated Mug caters to the former faction; those who love hot beverages at the ideal drinkable temperature.

Insulated mugs and those with wired warmers are quite cumbersome to be honest. They never manage to keep the drink at one consistent temperature for a long duration. This is where the Nano Heated Mug scores big time; it is a mug designed to work wirelessly and holds a beverage to the ideal drinkable temperature for 45 minutes. For example, if I pour in my piping hot coffee, the mug will bring the coffee to the ideal temp (145-155 degrees Fahrenheit) hold it at that steady temperature for 45 minutes at one go! I can take the mug to meetings, on the go … no worries at all!

Of course its not a one time wonder, otherwise that’s a lot of money to spend on a single hot drink! The one-time full charge lasts you for 7 to 8 refills. What this means is that if you drink two cups of coffee / tea a day, then the cup on a full charge will last you for about four days.

The big question is how does this work and what’s in it for you.

  • The Wireless Heated Mug uses the Patented Nano Heat green technology. In 2012 it won the top green Innovations award in Hong Kong Awards for Environmental Excellence.
  • Nano heat technology means no more wires tying you to a heating source. You simply charge your nano mug with the included USB cord in your house, your car or even at your computer.
  • Once charged, disconnect and off you go with a perfectly heated beverage for up to 45 minutes. In a meeting, on a phone call, taking care of the kids, or running errands – your drink will remain at the perfect drinkable temperature throughout.

Details for the mug can be found here. My verdict – get yours NOW!

USB Heated Cat Bed Keyboard

usb cat keyboard
Does your cat like to sit on your keyboard? No need to answer, it’s obviously a yes. And always while you’re trying to type out something important. Meow Mix devoted a Catstarter to solving this problem (it’s like Kickstarter but for cat related stuff and with a corporate sponsor). They came up with Hot Keys. It’s a “keyboard” that plugs into a USB port that your cat can sit on while you type on your real keyboard.

But why would the cat want to sit on the Hot Keys keyboard instead of your actual keyboard? Because, as you might have guessed by the name (or the title of this post, genius), the keys are heated. The more you type on your keyboard, the toastier the cat bed gets. Here’s a quick video animation showing Hot Keys in action:

Now unfortunately Meow Mix is not bringing this to stores for everyone to purchase (somebody really should though). They did create 100 of them and shipped them off to selected loyal cat owners to enjoy. Totally pawesome.

Plush Narwhal USB Heated Slippers

narwhal slippers in use Plush Narwhal USB Heated Slippers
The unicorn of the sea can be the unicorn of your feet. With these Plush Narwhal Slippers you get that toasty warmth in both your heart (from seeing such a cute animal) and in your feet. That’s because these slippers are heated! Just plug them in to any USB outlet to heat them up and then unplug to walk around- or keep them plugged in and just drag your computer around at knee level like an idiot. There’s no wrong way.

Real narwhals don’t need to be USB heated because they have a thick layer of blubber to keep them warm. But you don’t because you snack on carrots all day long like a negative caloric human rabbit. The bottom of these one-size-fits-all slippers have non-slip dots to really take the slipping out of slippers. Don’t worry you can still slide around in your socks like you’re Tom Cruise in Risky Business- just skip the tighties though. Please, my eyes are burning, put some pants on. Even the narwhals have closed their eyes. So treat your feet.
