Iain Sinclair Knife

Iain Sinclair's Cardsharp2 is no ordinary multi-tool, as this slick knife folds up flat like a credit card when not in use. Unlike its predecessors and / or copycats, this model is thinner and lighter, thanks to the use of 420-series surgical stainless steel. However, don't let its slim design fool you, as it's sharp enough to easily cut through an automobile safety belt in an emergency. You can pick one up for just $3.49 shipped here.

Swirl Faucet

Sam Qui, a student at London's Royal College of Art, designed an innovative faucet that not only looks cool, but saves 15% more water than traditional designs as well. To accomplish this, it swirls your water into intricate geometric patterns as soon as the tap is turned on, weaving small jets of water into cross-hatched designs. A system of turbines installed inside the faucet to create different swirl flows, complete with three different settings: a helix-like flow, spaghetti noodle swirl, or an elaborate lattice-work column of water.

Lockheed Martin Adam

Lockheed Martin's new 30-kilowatt fiber laser called Athena managed to burn through a truck manifold in seconds, despite being fired by a team from Lockheed Martin positioned more than a mile away. The system uses a technique known as spectral beam combining to blend multiple laser modules to create a single, powerful, high-quality beam. This is done for greater 'efficiency and lethality' than the multiple individual 10-kilowatt lasers used in other systems. Continue reading for two videos and more information.

Sony Project Morpheus Prototype

First announced nearly a year ago, Sony's Project Morpheus VR headset made its official debut at the Games Developer Conference 2015 and will hit stores sometime in 2016.
