Prompt eyes-free watch

Im kind of obsessed with the concept behind this watch. It's designed to be completely "eyes-free"  so you don't have to look at it to tell the time. Instead, you hold your finger on the face, and it emits a short burst of haptic vibrations that communicate what time of day it is. The idea is that, since it doesn't have a screen and you can check it without looking at it, it'll allow you to be more present during conversations and meetings.


Fire Ant fire starter for Swiss Army knives

This thing is easily one of the most brilliantly designed products I've ever encountered on Kickstarter. You know all that empty space inside the corkscrew on a Swiss Army Knife? The Fire Ant fills that space up with something extremely useful: an ultracompact fire starting kit. The outer shell, which screws neatly into the corkscrew, is partially made of wax-covered tinder. Remove that, and you'll find a flint, which you can strike on the back of your knife to make a spark to ignite the aforementioned tinder. How ingenious is that?!


Moft Z flat-pack desk stand

Standing desk kits certainly aren't a new thing at this point. These devices, which allow you to turn your existing desk into a standing desk by raising up a platform, have been around almost as long as standing desks themselves have. But despite being the latest entrant into an already full category, Moft Z is special. This sucker sits almost completely flat when its not in use thanks to its clever origami-like design.


Freebord 5x snowboard-like skateboard

Skateboards are an undeniably great tool for getting around a city, but they also take a fair amount of practice to get comfortable with and a large chunk of that practice is usually spent learning how to brake properly. Freebord circumvents that problem with a super clever truck and caster wheel system that allows you to more easily execute a slide brake much like you would on a snowboard. This is the fifth generation of this design, and as someone who's ridden (and crashed!) the first generation a few times, Im here to tell you that this looks like a massive improvement.


Impossible table tensegrity desk toy

If there's one thing there will always be plenty of on Kickstarter, it's desk toys. Specifically, desk toys that are made of machined metal and designed to showcase some sort of inspiring physical or mechanical phenomenon. Impossible Table fits that description to a T. It's a machined metal desk toy that showcases the concept of tensegrity: the characteristic property of a stable three-dimensional structure consisting of members under tension that are contiguous and members under compression that are not.
