Be warned: you’re about to meet your latest obsession, a gadget so simple and so useful that you’ll never leave home without it. It’s called the iSlice, a tiny ceramic wedge that all but replaces scissors with its precise cutting ability. Need to rescue a new pair of headphones from that pesky plastic bubble? The iSlice can cut right through it. Want a truly straight line on your wrapping paper? Drag the iSlice across it for a scarily sharp edge. And unlike an Exacto, the iSlice’s blade is so tiny, it can’t cut your fingers. It can, however, cut almost everything else.
