This week’s coolest gadgets are coming at you sweet and fast with a theme driven by homewares and all things unconventional. Ever wanted to jump into a floating sauna? You can now. We’ll forever be taking your money because we know you love it.
#1 Floating Sauna
The elusive answer to the world’s coolest (or is that hottest?) sauna has arrived. A Kickstarter floating sauna is currently sitting in Seattle’s Lake Union. It’s a fully operational unit too with a buoyant base, alluminium decking and marine grade plywood all forming this cool structure. The ladder-accessible roof itself acts as a diving platform because everyone who saunas wants to go for a dive every now and then. An electric motor keeps everything moving along the water. The price for this dream to become a reality? $43,000.
#2 H2O Ninja Snorkel Mask
Conventional snorkels require divers to straddle the surface as they glide over the water and stay alive by breathing through one’s mouth. The H2O Ninja Snorkel mask is looking to change this with a vertical face mask concept which allows divers to breather underwater with both their mouth and nose. It’s a simple yet intuitive design which should see to it that many more become scuba fanatics. There’s even an optional GoPro mount which can attach to the mask.
#3 GoPro Omni Camera
Speaking of GoPro, the company has just unveiled a 360 degree mounting device to capture content especially for VR applications. The cube structure houses six Hero4 Black cameras which uses GoPro software to synchronise all six video signals into one. Plug and play 360 degree video has arrived. Now to throw it in the washing machine to see what we get.
