Memobottle: A Unique Alternative To Reusable Water Bottles


Are you sick and tired of your water bottle taking up most of the space in your bag? You know, the bottles that squeeze easily, leak and are not reusable. Well, the bottle that we are featuring here is anything but… Memobottle will slide easily between your laptop, tablet, books or valuables, and because of its flat rectangular shape, it will make the most out of the space in your bag without ever compromising on functionality.


Memobottle is made from BPA-free Tritan, it comes in three sizes (Letter, A4, and A5) and can hold between 0.75 and 1.25 litres of liquid. The bottle is dishwasher safe, sturdy, and convenient, and, more importantly, can be used over and over again. Memobottle is also an environmentally friendly alternative to classic plastic water bottles.


By the way, did you know that, in the U.S. alone, 1,500 plastic bottles are thrown away every second and that almost 50 billion single-use bottles were sold in the world last year? So, how about making a small, but significant contribution to preserving your environment and switching to reusable bottles like this one?


The creative minds behind Memobottle – Jesse Leeworthy from Melbourne, Australia and Jonathan Byrt from San Diego, California – have launched the project on Kickstarter and, with still 34 days to go, they had already collected ten times more money than originally planned.




XINTD X3 960 Lumen Flashlight


Need a high-quality flashlight? You want it to be sturdy, durable, reliable and you wouldn’t mind beautiful? Read on, then. We present you with the XINTD X3 by GearBest.
The XINTD X3 body is made of high quality aluminum with an aluminum smooth reflector and glass lens. The impression of the flashlight’s performance you get from its looks and materials is further enhanced by the beautiful gun metal color.


Measuring 6.1 x 1.5 x 2.16 inches and weighing 0.68 pounds it sure feels good in your hand and inspires confidence. The bezel made of stainless steel protects the head of the flashlight in case you drop it. Additionally, it is very unlikely to slide or roll away due to the texture with stripes which increase friction and rectangular thread which helps its overall anti-roll design.
When it comes to power sources the XINTD X3 is very versatile. You can use one 26650, also one 18650, or three AA batteries.
All of this is nice, but batteries have one primary function and that is providing you with light. The Cree XM-L2 U2 emitter used in the XINTD X3 gives off stunning 960 lumens of light. For those of you who know what kind of a light this is, we’ll give you some time to absorb the information. For the ones who aren’t familiar with this measuring system, well skip all the physics and tell you that one lumen is a similar amount of light to the one that one candle would emit. So, 960 candles in the XINTD X3.
To put all this in a more practical kind of a perspective, most of the common flashlights out there rarely come close to 100 lumens; household units don’t need more than 25; camping flashlights with about 50-60 lumens will suffice; and police officers’ torches usually go from 90 to 150 lumens and if you have ever had one of those up in your face, you know how bright it is. Now again, the XINTD X3 has 960 lumens.
This kind of power comes with two kinds of modes. The first option has three modes – low 5%, mid 50% and high 100%. The second option has two additional modes – strobe and SOS.

Black Burger on the Menu of Japanese Burger King!


It may seem like it’s burnt, but “black burger” is actually the newest item on the menu of Burger King in Japan. This burger is made of black buns, black cheeses, and even the black sauce that goes into burger. “Kuro” means black in Japanese, and accordingly, the original name of these burgers will be “Kuro Pearl Burger” and “Kuro Diamond Burger“. Black burgers were first put into circulation in 2012, but it was only a rehearsal.


“Black burgers are selling because of the color, but the customers always come back for more because of the great taste”, vendors say.
Apparently the black burgers left a good impression on customers so can be found on the menu of Burger King’s restaurants in Japan from 19 September.


Vik Muniz’s Limited Edition Bottle of Perrier Jouët Belle Epoque Rosé 2005


Pernod Ricard has launched the 2005 vintage of its Champagne Perrier-Jouët cuvée, Belle Epoque Rosé. The expression is packaged in a limited run of bottles designed by Brazilian visual artist Vik Muniz. The design of the bottle has been described as Muniz’s fairy-tale encounter of a dazzling golden hummingbird with the iconic Perrier-Jouët anemone. “When the bright-gold burst Brazilian bird hovered momentarily over a bed of flowers in his ceaseless quest for nectar, he spied the latter’s pristine white petals, marvelled at her delicate beauty the latter’s white petals turning gently pink in pleasure at such gallant scrutiny.”
The iteration comprises mainly Chardonnay, with its pink colour generated by the presence of Pinot Noir.


Only 200 bottles of the limited edition have been released which will be available exclusively in the UK at Searcy’s Club at The Gherkin, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges for £248 ($400).
