We’re always on the lookout for the latest inventions and futuristic gadgets. So we thought we’d share some of the new sporty luxe inventions that are on our radar right now.
Shop → hendohover.com approx. $12,300
Since its’ fictional debut in Back to the Future Part II, the hoverboard has been but a distant dream. However, a California-based tech firm, Hendo, have now made the hoverboard a reality. Though it only hovers an inch or so off the ground and has 15 minute battery life (not nearly enough to defeat your enemies Marty McFly style!), it’s still one of the coolest things we’ve ever seen! You can pre-order this bad boy at Hendo Hover but initially only a very limited few will be made to order.
The Coolest Cooler
Shop → coolest.com, approx. $370
Speaking of cool… the faithful Esky has done a stellar job keeping our beverages cold for many, many years. But Ryan Grepper, the mastermind behind the Coolest Cooler decided that wasn’t enough. Instead he has come up with a creation that includes a blender for some smoothies on-the-go, a LED light, a bluetooth speaker for tunes and even USB charger to make sure nobody’s phone runs out of battery. It really is the coolest cooler out there! The Coolest Cooler will hit the market later this year and there’s a limited number of spots on the waiting list so you’ve gotta be quick to be cool!
Shop → lumobodytech.com, approx. $125
Constantly looking down at our smartphones has produced an epidemic of slouchers. Which is what prompted Monisha Pekash, founder of Lumo BodyTech, to design the ultimate anti-slouching gadget. The Lumo Lift is a chiplike device that clips onto the user’s shirt to analyse neck and spinal positions. It will gently vibrate when you need to stand up taller. They’re on sale now through the Lumo BodyTech website lumobodytech.com
The Copenhagen Wheel
Shop → superpedestrian.com approx. $1160
Known as ‘the wheel that gives bikers a boost’, the Copenhagen Wheel can attach to most bicycles to transform your bike into an electric hybrid. Perfect for giving you a boost up particularly challenging hills! We love it because it makes cycling to and from work much less daunting, so you can do your bit for the environment and get some incidental exercise at the same time. You can pre-order your very own Copenhagen Wheel on the Super Pedestrian website now for shipping later this year.
