You Need in Your Life
By Kyzia Maramara
If you’re the type to easily covet things, here’s a warning: this list is guaranteed to make you jealous! We’ve scouted the internet for great items from both local and international that will wow you, and our scouting did not disappoint! From portable bidets to hovercrafts to health tech, these inventions will show you the genius of the human race.
1. Manang Bidet
Manang Bidet is a locally made hygiene tool that’s perfect for those who are always on the go. The handheld manual bidet conveniently addresses sanitary needs and is portable enough to bring with you wherever you go. They have different nozzles available that fit on the lip of plastic water bottles, but if you don’t have bottles they also offer kits that come with a collapsible bottle. If you’re a backpacker, a traveler, a student, or you just like to be prepared during restroom breaks, Manang Bidet is your savior!
2. Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand
This stand allows you to hang one or two hammocks in the back of your car or truck. Imagine driving, overlooking the view of the city, assembling this installation in minutes, and sitting back to relax! What a great way to cap off a week. Each arm of the stand is capable of holding 250lbs, a total weight of 500lbs for two arms. This can be purchased online on Amazon.
3. Scorpion 3 Hoverbike
The personal hovercraft is real and it is here! Although it isn’t as cool and as Back-to-the-Future as we want to, we’re progressing.
Riding the Scorpion 3 Hoverbike is like riding an oversized drone, complete with the small rotary blades on the four corners of the machine. It can carry one person and can hover for about 27 minutes at a time. If they release this now, every rider has to wear full gear protection up to their pinkies because it looks dangerous but exciting. You can finally please jeepney drivers when they shout “Lumipad ka!”
4. Foot-powered washing machine
Drumi is a portable washing machine that saves electricity and water, and at the same time gives you a bit of an exercise. With more and more people being more conscious of our energy consumption and helping to save the planet, Drumi comes to the scene just in time. It’s designed to take 2kg of soiled clothes which takes about 5 minutes of pedaling to wash. Drumi takes the term multi-tasking to a whole new level.
