Pivotal Tracker 1

Pivotal Tracker 1 isn't just another Fitbit clone, but rather one that touts all the features at just a fraction of the price. Working in conjunction with the Pivotal Living mobile app, it utilizes sensor technology to track daily activities, such as steps walked, daily activity, calories burned, and the amount (and quality) of sleep. The wristband then sends the information wirelessly to the app for real-time health and wellness reporting. Product page.

Prank Packs

Prank packs look like real product boxes, but they're just as they sound...jokes. They include such products as the "Extreme Chores: Motion-Controlled Video Game", "Family Blankeez", "Beer Beard", "Hot Lips Face Heater", "Crib Dribbler", "Pet Petter", and lots more. Our favorite? Probably the Hot Lips simply because it would cause more harm to your face - not to mention obstruct your view - than generate safe heat. Still interested? You can pick them up here.

Water Purification Billboard

Researchers in Peru have created an innovative billboard that turns humidity in the air into potable drinking water. Located northern edge of the Atacama desert, the city of Lima and its surrounding villages receive only 0.51-inches of rain annually. The capital city has relied on drainage from the Andes mountains and runoff from melted glaciers for its drinking water needs, but due to climate change, the supply has been on a steady decline. The world's first billboard that generates water from thin air consists of five primary components: it captures the humid air, runs it through an air filter into the condenser, to create water, which then passes through a carbon filter into one a central holding tank. All you need to do is turn on the faucet at the base of the billboard for a clean glass of water. It's capable of producing up to 100 liters of potable water a day . Continue reading for more.

Wilber says, "This is the first physical product that I have developed. I bought one of these flashguns a while ago and had way too much fun playing with it."
