On the face of it, Bento is a minimal looking storage box… but it’s much much more than that. Inspired by the Japanese lunchbox, Bento is an innovative way to keep your working space clutter free with sections inside to keep your bits neatly organised. The magic, however, lays (quite literally) on the lid. Open or closed, the top of Bento acts as a versatile stand for your laptops, tablets, notebooks and documents. Sure, some people might think it’s just a box, but use it properly and Bento is the perfect companion for your productivity.
Exploding Kittens: A Card Game About Kittens and Explosions and Sometimes Goats was the most backed game in Kickstarter history. The rules are simple. Players draw cards until someone pulls out an Exploding Kitten, at which point KABLAMMO! They explode. Well, they lose… unless they have a Defuse card which can defuse the kitten using an array of tools such as laser pointers, belly rubs, and catnip sandwiches. The rest of the cards are used to move, mitigate, or avoid Exploding Kittens. Oh, and some can activate special powers. Great fun for all the family, but if you’re after something a bit more explicit, go ahead and check out Exploding Kittens: NSFW Edition.

Waking up in summer is a lot easier than waking up in winter. The main reason being that the sun rises earlier in summer and later in winter. This is fine if you’re living like our ancestors using the sun as our evolutionary alarm clock, but you’ve got to be in the office early for that big breakfast meeting and it’s still dark when your alarm goes off… The Philips Wake-Up Light is your personal sunrise, clinically proven to naturally wake you up so you can get out of bed easier, feeling happier and more energised. The coloured sunrise simulation matches the warm red glows of an early sunrise and gradually brightens up through orange to a bright yellow light. If you find yourself still needing a nudge to get you up, The Philips Wake-Up Light comes with 5 natural alarm clock sounds from rainforest to seaside. It also has an FM radio and an auto-dimming digital clock. It’s not just ideal for waking you up though, with Sleep Mode it’s perfect for bedtime too. Reversing the process from light
What else do you need to know other than Monopoly and Pokémon hooked up and had the cutest baby you’ve ever seen?

However, you’ll probably want to play the game. In this edition you travel through all eight gyms, battling their leaders, plus with Trainer Battle and Professor Oak cards replacing the usual Chance and Community Chest, you’re in for a fun mix of surprises.
Remembering what you’ve been working on and for how long is always a gruelling task, which is why there’s a ton of apps that help track your time. Few do it well, others only exist in pixels. That’s where ZEI comes in, making it easy to instantly switch between your time-tracked tasks with a physical 8-sided device that sits unobtrusively on your desk. Using the polygon shaped device is simple. Mark each side with your tasks using pen or stickers and whatever task is on top will be the task that it’s currently tracking. Connect it all up to their app (which works on macOS, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Android), flip it, sit back do work, and watch your time track itself.
Stick it, shape it, do whatever you want with it. Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that once stuck, turns into rubber. Kind of like a better, useful version of Silly Putty. Boasting a 6-in-1 formula that can fix, bond, cushion, replace, create, and seal. It’s unique formulation means it does what you want it to in all kinds of environments (think freezer, dishwasher or a steamy shower). Great for indoors and outdoors too. The real magic, however, happens when you mix Sugru with a bit of imagination.
