10 Things You Didn’t Know You Absolutely Needed [BUZZFEED]

1. Nimbus

Ryan Pendleton

Step One: Figure out what you’d like to be updated on. Step Two: Let the Nimbus be your ultimate dashboard, giving you real-time status on said updates.

2. Spotter

Denny Fong

Put this disc anywhere, and it will monitor temperature, humidity, light, sound, and motion. More importantly, it will monitor changes in those things, and let you know immediately. Laundry done? Bag at the gym is moved? Lights go on at home while you’re on vacation? Your phone will tell you.

3. Stem

Tim Houle

Because sometimes you just need a spritz.

4. Pivot Power Genius

Jake Zien

Not only does this thing bend any which way, it works with an app that allows you to turn it on and off and control the separate outlets from your phone.

5. Slice


Oldest story in the book: Your circular pizza cutter works beautifully on the cheesy center of the pie, but fails miserably on that stubborn crust. NO LONGER. This little miracle device knows your woes and is here to help.

6. Egg Minder

Rafael I. Hwang

So you’re at the grocery store, and you think to yourself, What’s my egg situation? Are the ones in the fridge any good? Should I get more? Finally, your phone can tell you. An app will let you know, so you’ll never be bereft of an omelet.

7. Converge

Jin Chai

There’s something to be said for a well-organized desk. This Converge thing takes it a step further, turning your charging station into something that’s actually worth looking at.

8. Split Stick


It’s never been easier to keep your work life and your personal life separate. Step one is to own this double-sided thumb drive — keep the expense reports on the business end, and the 46 photos you took of your cat when she was being extra cute on the other.

9. Porkfolio

Jason Hunter

A piggy bank that communicates with your phone? Great. Yes. Thank you, yes please.

10. Drift

Michael Pearson

Sick of your boring workout routine? Find your balance. This thing replicates the motion of board sports, but there’s no real risk of you breaking your face. Best of both worlds.
