As if we needed another reason to buy everything on Amazon, we go and uncover a whole new hidden section of awesome offerings: a unique Amazon store that’s devoted to nothing but new and innovative products created by startups, so you’ll never get bored shopping for stuff.
Designed with a mission to support up-and-coming entrepreneurs by giving them the resources to sell and deliver their products to millions of Amazon customers, Amazon Launchpad is filled with cutting-edge products from rising startups. Translation: You can shop some of the newest, hottest items on the market—think Shark Tank products, crowd-funded goods, and more—with the same comfort and ease of ordering anything else online.
Here’s a handful of the coolest gear currently available on Amazon Launchpad:
Created by a team of designers that worked for the likes of iRobot, Apple, Sonos, MIT, and Harvard University, Root is a robot that teaches users aged 4 and up how to code at any skill level, thanks to graphical touch-and-play interface. It also lets users make artwork, play music, and create games, with nothing more than your iPad or iPhone.
If this snazzy red splatter guard looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it on Shark Tank. Designed to fit any standard 10-inch pan or skillet, the Frywall stops oil splatter, sauces spills, and other messy mishaps while cooking. Even better: it’s dishwasher safe and space-savvy—so you can just roll it up into a cup-sized sleeve for compact storage.
The only thing better than a quality espresso maker is one that’s small enough to carry with you. This portable espresso machine comes equipped with a built-in cup and scoop, so you throw it in your bag and take it wherever you go—just add water and coffee grinds.
Dreaming of an indoor garden that doesn’t require the expertise of a green thumb? Thanks to state-of-the-art nano-tech growth soil, this self-watering smart garden automatically takes care of plants by making sure they have enough water, light, and nutrients at all times, just plug in and add water and you’re good to go.
Always losing your glasses? Me too. Thankfully, these clever magnetic eyeglass holders (as seen on Shark Tank) attach to directly to your shirt, tote, and other attire so you can hang your glasses, earbuds, badges, and other go-to items with ease.
