TrinoXO Tee Crab T-Shirt
The TrinoXO Tee is an unusual T-shirt by every metric. First of all, it is an odor-battling T-shirt, one made from recycled crab. The T-shirt itself doesn’t quite look the part even though it was made from chitosan, a rare material obtained from a shellfish’s exoskeletons.
Allbirds opted for the material because getting it for their clothing line was never much of a chore. The surface of the T-shirt is difficult for smelly bacteria to invade and colonize, which ultimately helps it last longer.

Arlo’s device effectively creates motion zones, with notifications whenever a person or animal crosses in, and the video feed shows an incredible amount of detail.
Imagine owning a pair of headphones that are equipped to test your hearing and that only release the frequencies that you’re sensitive to. That’s exactly what the NuraLoop Headphones do as they fire out different frequencies before measuring your response to each of them.
The headphones then build a sound profile that measures your hearing output and this incredible tech is housed in their NuraLoop Headphones along with a bunch of other tech like a magnetic analog jack and some smart touches. The best part is how wonderful the headphones sound, as you’ll be able to connect with frequencies you never heard before.
The human ear has become tuned to find certain sounds, like car alarms and scratching on woody surfaces, extremely unpleasant. Specialists even think the shape of our eardrums acts like a kind of bell so the distortion has a sizable effect on mental well-being.
All of this annoyance is what birthed the idea of the Flare Calmer Earplugs, which alter the eardrum shape so annoying frequencies can be cut out. The effect is overall stress levels and ear fatigue are both minimized by the earplugs. It reduces these frequencies you don’t want to hear, and it also reduces ringing from tinnitus.
