Five rad and random things I found this week

The end-of-week dispatch from Pop Sci's commerce editor. Vol. 9.

My job is to find cool stuff. Throughout the week I spend hours scouring the web for things that are useful or fun or ridiculously cheap. Often times, these choices coalesce into a guide of like items—for example, items to make your bedside table awesome or gifts for Mother's Day. But I often stumble across some pretty awesome stuff that doesn't really fit into a list. So I made a list for those. The only thing they have in common is that I like them—and think you will too.

Below, five highlights from this week.
