Go ahead, free your disposable income:
By now you've definitely heard of Nebia, the high-power yet water-saving showerhead. Most recently, the company teamed up with Moen to manufacture the next generation of their design, which is more customizable, easier to install and will save you even more water.
Perhaps not as easy on the eyes as a traditional glass decanter, this smart wine dispenser will keep your wine at an optimal temperature and preserve it up to six months (though let's be honest, you probably won't be testing that limit).
Designed by a former Samsung engineer, Glamos is a tiny motion sensor that you can pair with any device to create a fully interactive touch screen pretty much anywhere.
Forget gravity: these magnetic wooden blocks allow you to get as creative as you want.
Equipped with a tiny but powerful solar panel, this bike light will charge while it's outside (and even on cloudy days). It also has a built-in motion sensor so it turns on whenever you grab your bike and off when you park it.
