Seek Thermal iPhone Camera

Seek Thermal ($200) is a new thermal camera system for your smartphone (Apple or Android) that lets you see the unseen, in both complete darkness and broad daylight.  The Seek Thermal Camera connects to the bottom of your smartphone and is much cheaper than the FLIR One version ($350). Video of the Seek Thermal Camera after the break.


Sygama Thunder Boy Speaker

For just $12.95 you can get your hands on one of these inappropriately cute Thunder Boy Q30 Rechargeable Speakers. At first glance it is just a little guy laying down with headphones on… then I noticed that the 3.5mm audio jack is placed accurately where poopy would exit. Odd… but funny. Available in a bunch of colors here.

Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle Build Update

Remember the Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle from August? If not, check it out here. The build is under way and this is the first build update that we are posting (technically two updates in one). The Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle is starting to take shape. Plenty of pictures, and details, after the break showing the forks, headlight, speedometer, gas tank, exhaust, etc… 

LavNav Motion Activated Toilet Light

Wandering around in the dark to use the toilet at night isn’t exactly a new trick… but it is one that technology could shine some light on. The LavNav Toilet Light is a motion activated light that lights red if the seat is up and green if the seat is down. Not only is a bit of light helpful at night but it helps with the sleepy/blurry vision. The LavNav Motion Activated Toilet Light is pretty inexpensive as well at just $14.95.

Dancing Baby Groot Toy

If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy you must live under a rock and I am shocked. If you have, then you know how cute Baby Groot is dancing in his little planter pot. So cute that he has spawned a bunch of models, toys, and figurines but they were all lacking the original Baby Groot dance moves.

Well someone in the toy department woke up and finally made a dancing Baby Groot toy that dances to the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”. The toy should be ready in time for Christmas for $14.99. Watch Groot dancing after the break.

smartphone costumes and masks

Some people love Halloween and spend quite a bit of time thinking of the perfect costume. Others, like me, hate the idea of dressing up as something lame and end up skipping the costume party altogether. I think I might show up to the halloween costume party this year thanks to the clever kids at MorphCostumes.

They are fairly priced and there are some pretty awesome designs from masks ($45-$60) and t-shirts ($25-$30) that use your smartphone/tablet screen to play custom animations. Pretty clever. My favorite costumes here are the MorphSuits which are a one-piece zip-up snuggy style costume. The naked guy and the hillbilly are pretty funny.

You gotta see the video, after the break, to see how clever/cool these costumes really are.

Million Dollar Drone Landing

Not exactly what I expected from a U.A.V drone that costs about 1-million dollars. Video of this odd drone landing after the break.

Cucumbo Cucumber Spiral Cutter

While I was raised to believe playing with my food was a bad thing… it doesn’t mean you can’t make it a bit more fun. The Cucumbo Spiral Slicer takes an ordinary cucumber or zucchini and turns it to a bit of veggie-eye-candy.  Oh yeah it is also incredibly cheap at just $3.99 with free shipping.

Zubits Magnetic Shoe Laces

I haven’t been this excited about shoe laces closures since my old Velcro shoes from the 80’s. Sure, shoe laces aren’t exactly too tough to figure out and use… but they are far from perfect and have remained unimproved for too long. Check out the Zubits which attach to your existing shoe laces making it easy to put on and take off your shoes.  Oh heck – watch the video and get prepared to grab your wallet.

Tesla Model S P85D

Arguably one of the best cars on the road, the Tesla Model S just got a bit better with the addition of all wheel dive and more. The Model S lineup now has the option of a “D” designator which stands for “dual” and in “dual motors”.  The Tesla Model S P85D (and 60D and 85D) models are not only faster with better handling, they are also more efficient getting a bit of extra range. The P85 goes about 265 miles per charge and the P85D goes about 275… all that range and a 0-60 time of just 3.2 seconds.

As if that wasn’t enough, the car also comes with a new autonomous driving system that allows the Model S to act much like the fictional KnightRider car. Seriously. The new P85D has forward-looking radar, a camera with image recognition for reading signs and identifying pedestrians, and 360-degree long-range sonar. All this gadgetry means that the car can park itself, drive itself,  pick you up at a certain time and location, and more. Once the regulations catch up with the car it will be available for use on public roads. Currently it is only active for use on private property.  Amazing stuff.
