Technically, humans have been spreading the ashes of their loved ones over symbolic ground for thousands of years — MesoLoft just takes this process much closer to the final frontier. This post-cremation service sets the ashes skyward on a custom balloon to 20 miles high, aka the mesosphere, dispersing them into the air where they’ll circle the earth for, likely, months, before slowly settling down around the globe and seeding droplets, snowflakes, and more on their gradual descent. Each launch is also accompanied by a two-angle high-def video to keep as a memento.

Fire Sense Flat Folding Notebook Grill

With summer just around the corner, we can’t wait until the first pool parties, picnics, beach outings, and of course barbecuing some delicious meat on an outdoor grill at each one. Fire Sense’s Notebook grill is the best combination of portability and set-up convenience we’ve yet to find. Easily folding down to a thickness of less than 1″ for transport, the Fire Sense provides ample grilling surface when unfolded and its 8lbs weight complements its diminutive form.

Like-its Post-its

Ever wish you could make the real world feel just a little more digital? Like-its are a physical spin-off of the Facebook “Like” button that everybody but your grandparents ought to be aware of. They’re particularly useful for annoying friends in their own homes or making public anonymous statements.

Order some here – about 3.30$ a pack + shipping.
