Five rad and random things I found this week

The end-of-week dispatch from PopSci's commerce editor. Vol. 17.

Star Wars Snack Holders
I'm not going to say something like "these aren't your grandma's candy dishes" because I don't know your grandma. For all I know she loves Star Wars. So instead I'll say: these candy dishes are cool.Think Geek

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 for staying cool during the summer, things to make your bathroom the shit, or apps that won't make your kids dumber. But I often stumble across some pretty awesome stuff that doesn't really fit into a list. So I made a list for those.

Cruzy Kuzy Leather Bike Cup Holder
Leather Bike Cup HolderAmazon

This vintagey drink holder attaches to the front of your bike and holds anything from a bottle of water to coffee to forties of Old English. While we don't encourage drinking and driving, we think it's important to keep both hands free while riding. You might as well grab a soft leather Cruzy (get it?) so you can stay hydrated and hands-free on your trip. $26.

Saints of Science Holy Trinity

The set comes with three lookalike prayer candles with high-res digital paintings of Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye. $27.

Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch
'Back to the Future' Flux Capacitor WristwatchThink Geek

This Back to the Future themed wristwatch is made out of stainless steel and inspired by flux capacitor from Doc's DeLorean. To see what time it is, press the button on the bottom of the watch face and count the lights on the flux capacitor as they flash. First it'll show the hour and then the minutes. 6 lights + 2 lights + 5 lights = 6:25. Right below the face, an LCD screen shows the date. If you press the middle button on the watch, it will access Time Travel mode, which shows you a random time and date. Useless, but awesome! $30.

GNARBOX - Portable Backup & Editing System for Any Camera
GNARBOXAmazon

The GNARBOX lets you backup and upload 128GB of footage from your camera and edit that footage on a smartphone or tablet via their app. Insert a memory card—MicroSD or SD—or connect the GNARBOX to your camera using a USB cable. Once you've transferred the footage, connect your tablet or phone to GNARBOX's built-in WiFi, open the app, and start editing your footage. It works with RAW and 4k videos. Once you're done editing, you can send the videos to friends over social media, upload the footage to your computer, or plug in another hard drive to back up that footage. The device is shockproof and has a 4000mAh battery, which can be used for four to six hours of editing. $300.
