I'm amazed at how simple of a name Don Vitenzo gave his RC hybrid car-quadcoptor when he simply named it "B". Maybe he was all out of ideas because he certainly seemed to use them all on the design when he managed to pack a fully capable all terrain vehicle and a stable flight enabled quadcopter into the same vessel. By designing the propellers to fit inside the wheels B can take off and land vertically or transition to flying mode while driving, the large wheels allow it to tackle any terrain, an " experience which has not been possible within one package before." Here's where it gets interesting, about two thirds down Don's Kickstarter page he talks about future applications, and he mentions full sized vehicle. I don't like bumper to bumper traffic, but what I do like is the idea of seeing a vehicle like this hover past me and the traffic jam in front of me to transport paramedics to the causalities in the front. Hopefully that day comes soon, until then you'll have to settle for a smaller version which should provide enough entertainment.
Existing vacuum sealers are great for preserving food, but you have to store everything in eco-damaging bags, this encourages you to only use it for items with longer storage times. VacuVita is a new all in one food storage unit that creates a vacuum when closed to keep the food inside fresh. When you are ready to take out your food the stylishly designed VacuVita releases the vacuum seal with just a touch of your finger. The system is expandable using the Covero lids which allow you to hook a hose to the main unit and create a vacuum in smaller containers that can be placed in the fridge.

The Scanado Scout is a medical tricorder, and it's going to revolutionize how we measure health. Simply place the Scout on your forehead and after 10 seconds it will display readings of your heart rate, skin and core body temperature, Sp02 (oximetry), respiratory rate, blood pressure, ECG, and emotional stress on your smartphone. Scanado's Indiegogo campaign is not only to fund the Scout but to help push it through to FDA regulation, at this point it can't be used as a medical device. Getting the Scout into consumers hands as a research device will allow Scanado to refine the product through testing and clinical studies. This is crowd sourcing at its best, where you can help fund, and refine a product that will revolutionize how humans track their health.
The Agent smart watch promises to be the next generation in smart watch technology, boasting 7 days of runtime under normal use the watch can connect to your phone via bluetooth. Features such as a low voltage 1.28" high speed memory display, ambient light and 3 axis motion sensors, and dual core processing mean the Agent will last longer and still put some usable apps on your wrist. And when the watch gets low on juice it can be charged wirelessly via an optional Qi charging pad (if you have your own you'll save $50) The Agent watch is a result of a collaboration between Secret Labs supplying all the tech and House of Horology on the design end.
