5. RollScout

Getting stuck in a bathroom with no toilet paper is frustrating. Surely you don’t want to be in this situation.

Yes, you can visually inspect the roll before using the toilet. But are we all always that vigilant? What about our guests? Especially in the urgency of ‘those’ moments.

RollScout puts an end to those annoying lapses. RollScout warns you when there’s not enough paper on the roll through a bright and noticeable flashing light that draws your attention. So you can change the roll beforehand.

4. Smash Cup

Smash Cup is an ultra-portable, sealed travel cup you keep with you – great for hot drinks (like coffee and tea) and cold ones.

When you’re not drinking, it collapses into a compact, liquid-tight disk, saving you space in your backpack, handbag, briefcase or jacket pocket. Since it’s reusable, it eliminates the waste of disposable coffee cups.

2. Solarpod Pyxis

Never be without power again. Charges full in 4.5 hours of direct sunlight and refills your phone 3 times. A solar charger that works!

We have two USB outputs, one rated at 1Amp and the other at 2Amps.

Solar charging isn’t always convenient so we added a Micro USB charging port. Since we were plugged into our laptop anyway we figured why not add some internal memory? It mounts like any USB drive and now we�ve got an additional 32GB of memory to play with.
