Meet the ultimate ice maker – the FLEXTAIL EVO ICER ice maker. The innovative ice maker is the world’s first to feature a built-in battery. It promises to tackle all the issues that you could possibly face with traditional portable ice makers, which tend to have slow speeds and annoying power cords.

Why is it noteworthy?

Right off the bat, you can immediately see that the EVO ICER is meant to be carried anywhere. Weighing only 20.9 lbs and smaller than most portable ice coolers, the ice maker can be easily lifted and positioned where you can easily make and grab as much ice as you need.

What we like

  • The 200Wh battery inside means you don’t have to worry about power sockets, and the EVO ICER can run for as long as three hours on a full charge

What we dislike

  • Doesn’t have the option to chill drinks inside if needed

AIRROBO recently unveiled the new PC100 cordless robotic pool cleaner, which promises to deliver stress-free and sweat-free maintenance of pools just in time for summer!

Why is it noteworthy?

The AIRROBO PC100 is a true wonder, with two brushes scrubbing your pool floors and a powerful suction of 55GPM (Gallons Per Minute) that makes short work of leaves, dirt, debris, and even fine sand along its path, ensuring a clean and healthy swim every time.

What we like

  • It can clean walls and waterlines, crawling up walls up to 90 degrees
  • Its large 4L filter basket lets it give the pool a thorough cleaning before you need to pick it up

What we dislike

  • Hefty price tag

3. The Orfo Lounge Chair

Designed by Miray Özlem ER, the Orfo lounge chair and sunbed is quite a quirky and eccentric-looking piece of furniture. The designer drew inspiration from Mother Nature herself while designing the chair.

Why is it noteworthy?

If you look at the chair closely, it may remind you of a leaf or an exotic-looking plant. The woven pattern of the chair and its dusky green color were characteristics that Miray picked up from nature.

What we like

  • The bands were built using a polyester-based technical fabric, and they have a high mechanical resistance to the sun and strong color stability

What we dislike

  • There is no option to fold the chair and stow it away when not in use

4. The Viuu Bottle Opener

It’s high time the traditional bottle opener got a redesign! And this is exactly what YUUE Design Studio did – they revamped the age-old bottle opener. Although the Viuu Bottle opener looks like a decorative piece, it doesn’t compromise on any of the functionality. You can now get your drinks ready in a really unique + effective manner with the Viuu Bottle Opener.

Why is it noteworthy?

The design is inspired by window grill patterns, specifically those from classic Chinese architecture. There are three shapes featured: one hexagonal, one rectangular, and one with a semi-circular design. All of them have these patterns that may remind you of windows in old houses if you live in such a place influenced by this kind of architecture. While there are no handles to grip while opening a bottle, the grill design can help you with the grip problem.

What we like

  • Inspired by classic Chinese architecture

What we dislike

  • Tiny items like a bottle opener have a tendency to be lost, and there is no magnetic element that helps us stick it to a noticeable place

5. The Yuanye

Say hello to The Yuanye, a portable outdoor barbecue grilling pan that you NEED on all your outdoor adventures and picnics this summer. The Yuanye looks like a simple old portable projector, but it is, in fact, an extremely functional and useful outdoor kitchen appliance that features a gas tank, fire source, and oil storage module.

Why is it noteworthy?

When you open it up, you’ll see two partitions where you can grill your meats on one side and your vegetable on the other. The design of this portable grill is inspired by the usual suitcases we bring when we travel, from the foldable design to the handle and all the accessories. But instead of being storage for clothes and other stuff we need, it’s actually for the food we need when going on a picnic or camping out in the middle of nature.

What we like

  • You can cook steak and barbecue all kinds of meats as well as different types of vegetables with the Yuanye, allowing you to prepare a balanced and well-rounded meal
  • Fashionable + good-looking appliance

What we dislike

  • Looks a bit heavy to be carrying around, better suited for your backyard or close distances
