If you have a hard time keeping your stir-fry in the pan while attempting the in-pan food flip/toss the Boomerang Wok ($133) might be for you. Not only does it have a special cupped edge making flipping and turning over the contents (your food) easier it is also oven friendly up to 320F.
Guess who wins when two guys compete in a grass cutting competition with very different tools. The guy on our left has an old scythe and the guy on our right has a Brushcutter 1 weed-whacker.
My favorite part is that they actually have a Scythe Festival in rural England. Too funny. The competition of old vs new tools video is after the break.
Which is better, the iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S6? If adults were involved it would most likely be a deeper discussion about the OS, hardware, their gadget ecosystem, etc… What if it were up to the kids?
Well this video, by Business Insider, asks the question of a handful of kids. They were handed an iPhone 6 and a Samsung Galaxy S6… which would they choose?
Whether you are hunter (seriously), survivalist, or just a backyard plinker the Pocket Shot ($25) might be something to throw in your EDC bag. It can shot at up to 350ft per second and is quicker and easier to load than a standard slingshot. As with anything getting accurate shots will take some practice.
The Pocket Shot comes with two slings (standard and pro) and can store ammo inside and is waterproof. Video after the break.
Broadcasters who use GoPro Hero cameras for unique immersive shots should be pretty excited about the GoPro HeroCast Transmitter. There are two versions the HeroCast and the HeroCast BacPac.
The HeroCast transmitter makes it so that broadcasters can access and use the great video live via a wireless feed. In other words they don’t have to wait for post-production video editing to see what they are shooting. The video is transmitted in full HD 1080p or 720p at 60 frames per second with H.264 encoding.
The GoPro wireless transmitter was created in conjunction with Vislink is smaller and lighter than anything currently available. Either version will work with the Hero3+ and Hero4 Black cameras and comes standard with 40 minutes of battery life (longer if you use external power). Yours for just $7,500. Ouch.
I have always been a fan of the crazy MV Agusta styling. Heck if it wasn’t for the fact that you have to be a tiny person to fit on their bikes I would already own at least one. I am 6’3″ and my legs end up above the gas tank. Not cool. The latest MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR is a thing of beauty. Check out the short seat, 3-pipe exhaust, white spoked rims, fat rear tire, and crazy overall styling. Drooling.
For the horse jockeys amongst us, read on. If nothing else check out the stunning photos of the Brutal 800 Dragster RR.

Whether you are hiding valuables or a pistol for defensive measures the QuickSafe Vent Safe ($219) is a pretty clever hiding place. I seriously doubt the typical
crack-head burglar would have a chance at finding this stash.
The Vent Safe fits between your standard 16-inch studs and uses an RFID card to unlock the contents. Video of the QuickSafe Air Vent RFID Safe after the break.
If you are anxiously waiting until midnight to order your Apple Watch, here is an unboxing video to help tide you over. Florence Santrot of Metronews has gotten ahold of an Apple Watch and gives users a better idea of what to expect upon opening the box. I am glad the charging cable is nice and long. Video after the break.
