Cold weather doesn’t have to end your backyard hangout sessions. You just need to be creative. Try popping a Breeo smokeless fire pit to your backyard hangout area. There are four Breeo models to choose from (Ablaze, Zentro, Double Flame, and Luxeve). The Breeo fire pits keep smoke at a minimum by using a double-wall, secondary combustion chamber. This means that the smoke is mixed with heated oxygen causing it to reburn. No more playing musical chairs to dodge the smokey areas. The Breeo fire pits are made in Lancaster, PA and...

Ever come home from a long days work and just two things come to mind? A  warm shower and a cold beer. This is where the Sudski ($15) comes in. The Sudski is a drink can holder (in most cases for beer) that securely grips to your shower wall surfaces. It even has drainage so it doesn’t become moldy or water filled.    ...

AKA – Why I like Apple and have an iPhone. Any government that has overstepped their bounds and openly spy on their citizens sucks, plain and simple. Our once great country has started sucking in many ways, too many to list here.  There are more countries that are worse, but it is still a tough pill to swallow for me. Apple makes it tougher for such governments to spy on iPhone users by encrypting data on phones, not allowing access to warrantless government overreaches, and encrypting iOS-to-iOS messaging (iMessage). Don’t...

Spoiler alert – this is a real product. Someone had the idea and got all the way to a real product without being talked out of it by friends and family. Or they are a closet pimple popping type of person. Either way I am amazed. The Pop It Pal ($20) is a piece of silicon with fifteen fake pimples. It is available in dark and light skin tones and comes with 3-ounces of refill pimple puss and a refill tool. I prefer syrup spray cheese. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Video of the pimple popping simulator, Pop It Pal, after the break. Did I mention...

Traveling musicians have it rough. Sure it looks cool walking around with a wooden guitar strapped to your back but it is a surefire way to a damaged guitar. This reality has given birth to the KLOS Carbon Fiber Travel Guitar. Not only is it built tough for taking a beating but it also has a bolt-on neck for breaking it down for smaller bagged travel. The only hybrid carbon fiber and wooden acoustic travel guitar ever built, this guitar features a high quality mahogany and blackwood neck, a carbon fiber foam core sandwich soundboard,...

Sure, you could show up to the next beach or pool party with an ordinary float or beach ball. How ordinary. Instead, show up with a 12-foot giant beach ball. Yep, 659,000 cubic inches of volume wrapped in 30mil vinyl. Don’t even think of blowing this 12-foot beach ball without an electric air-pump. Video and pictures of this spectacle after the break. ...

EHANG 184 Electric Helicopter

Take a DJI drone and make it larger, much larger, add a seat and you have the EHANG 184. While it isn’t that simple, it isn’t that far off. This replacement car of the future is a personal helicopter. Much of the flight systems are automated (like the DJI’s). In recent testing of the EHANG 184 they have flown up to 984-feet high with over 500-pounds, recorded a distance of 9.3-miles with a top speed of 80.7 MPH, and logged 1000’s of manned flights. While I am sure it is safe and will only improve with time, I would like to see an 0h-shit parachute added before I hop inside. More pictures and video of the EHANG 184 after the break. (more…)
