The Monk Manual Planner: A Daily System for Being + Doing

What is it?

The Monk Manual is a 90-day planner that is designed to help you focus on the important things and get things done.

Why is it cool?

I like the Monk Manual Planner because it’s a well-made notebook. I know this because they sent me an early production sample. I like that the manual combines several things into one notebook. There’s a planner, habit tracker, reflection area (think gratitude journal), and more. It’s A5-ish sized (8.3in x 5.8in) and it lays flat when it’s open. Yay!

Where can I find more info?

The Monk Manual Planner campaign ends on 11/27/18 and they have already met their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order a Monk Manual Planner starting at $29. After the Monk Manual Planner campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

POLAR SEAL heated T-Shirts

What is it?

POLAR SEAL heated T-Shirts are exactly what you guess they are, they are t-shirts that are heated to…well…keep you warm!

Why is it cool?

I like the POLAR SEAL heated T-Shirts because I’m cold natured. It doesn’t matter if it’s 100F degrees outside, I’ll probably be wearing a sweater when I’m indoors because air conditioning can make me chill. These t-shirts from POLAR SEAL come in long and short versions and in sizes for men and women. They heat up the upper back area with the touch of a button and can continue heating for up to 8hrs on a charge of a 10,000 mAh battery pack.

What to consider before pledging

A battery pack is NOT included with the t-shirt. You’re on your own to supply a USB battery pack.

VAVA Mobile Pet Cam

What is it?

The VAVA Mobile Pet Cam is a like a small camera that you can control remotely.

Why is it cool?

I like the VAVA Mobile Pet Cam because unlike home security cameras, this camera is mobile. Using an app, you can roll it around your home to check in on your pets. It has 2-way audio with bark alerts, a built-in treat dispenser, and a laser pointer for cat chasing fun. It even has drop detection sensors like a Roomba robot vacuum so you won’t accidentally send it falling down stairs.

MAKERphone

What is it?

The MAKERphone is a DIY kit that allows you to build your own working mobile phone.

Wallor 2.0 wallet

What is it?

The Wallor 2.0 is a smart wallet with features that include wireless charger, RFID protection, GPS tracking, and more.

Why is it cool?

I like the Wallor 2.0 because it’s been designed with every feature you can think of that might be needed for a wallet. First of all, it holds cash and cards and the cards are protected from RFID scanners. And then it’s protected from theft or loss because you can find it anywhere in the world by it’s built-in global GPS tracker. But one of the coolest features is that the Wallor wallet can become a wireless charger for your wireless charging compatible phone. Just place the phone on top of the wallet and it will charge it.

Trayvax OG 2.0 Multifunctional wallet

What is it?

It’s been 5 years since the Trayvax Original went live on Kickstarter. For their 5 year anniversary, they upgraded the Original to the OG 2.0. The OG 2.0 Multifunctional wallet is a new wallet from Trayvax that can hold up to 15 cards plus cash.

Why is it cool?

I like the OG 2.0 Multifunctional wallet because I know that Trayvax makes a rugged minimalist wallet that is made to stand the test of time. This new version includes some nice features like a pry bar and a security clasp that keeps the cards secure.
