Launchpad is a section on Amazon featuring cool tech gadgets, interesting foods and drinks, and other innovative products created by startups. Here are some of the things you can find there right now that'll totally upgrade your life:
1. A phone sanitizing case, because god knows what kind of trash you've been ingesting by way of your phone — and now, thankfully, you never need to know!
2. A Greek yogurt maker (because you're very hungry after thinking about phone germs) that'll help you save big bucks at the grocery store with your at-home revolving-door supply.
3. A color cube sudoku, if number-based sudoku just isn't challenging enough for you.
4. A pack of 160-calorie cakes in a cup, which only require a lil' water and 40 seconds in the microwave to achieve perfection.
5. An infinity travel pillow, because you're tired of never getting a wink of sleep on the plane or bus. (This one's so comfortable you might even find yourself using it in bed.)
6. A self-cleaning fish tank that doubles as a sprouts and herbs growing system — look at this ecosystem doing the most!
7. Banza, a high-protein and gluten-free pasta, because diabetics and GF folks deserve an alternative that actually tastes as good as the real deal.
8. A Foreo Luna Mini 2, the game-changing (and sensitive-skin-friendly) cleansing device designed to remove up to 99.5% of dirt and oil on your face.
9. A compact, portable espresso machine so cool even coffee snobs can get behind it.
10. The first "split keyboard" — made specifically with gaming in mind — that has the added perk of being much easier on your wrists during extended use.
11. A Wi-Fi-enabled LED light bulb, so you can say goodbye to all of the harsh overhead lighting in your apartment and welcome a new warm glow.
12. A marble LuMee Duo phone case that offers outstanding protection and flattering, studio-quality LED lighting in one pretty package.
13. A sous-vide precision cooker so you can live in a world where perfectly cooked meats and veggies are possible with every at-home meal.
14. A Rocketbook — that's a totally wireless, Cloud-integrated notebook — to make transferring your handwritten notes to your devices easier than ever.
15. A smart dog feeder that'll allow you to feed your pup right from your smartphone and even check in to make sure they've actually eaten the food via a built-in HD camera.
16. A peeler with a swiveling carbon steel blade so you can eat potato meals until the day you die (customers say this thing truly lasts forever!).
17. And a Bluetooth turntable that lives inside a suitcase, so you'll never have to be away from your vinyl children again when you're traveling.
