For the most part air travel is still pretty awesome (minus interactions with the braintrust crews of the TSA). You hop on a plane in California and in just 5-hours you are sitting on the beach in Hawaii. Amazing stuff. A few things that make the flight time take longer than it should are crappy boarding/boarders (don’t get me started) and the wait between door closing and the aircraft pulling away from the gate.

One cool product that equals two things I have never heard of before. I certainly didn’t know there was a gadget called an ultrasonic cutter and I have never run into Honda Electronics before either. This Honda Electronics USW-334 Ultrasonic Cutter has an x-acto style knife bald that vibrates at 40,000/sec for some of the smoothes cuts possible. This ultrasonic cutter can be use for paper, flies, plastic, cloth, etc… ...

AquaClimb

Who doesn’t want/need a 3-foot climbing wall for their swimming pool? Plenty of folks, I am sure. Either way, the Aquaclimb is a pretty cool replacement for the boring and underused slides of yesterday. No need for safety harnesses because a fall just lands you back in the pool. (more…)

Subaru has, for the most part, ignored the SUV market, until now. Subaru’s latest vehicle is a new SUV with a new engine. Of course it will be all-wheel drive. The Subaru Ascent comes with a new 2.4-liter engine in the usual boxer configuration. This engine has 10.6:1 compression (higher than normal for Subaru) and a twin-scroll turbocharger with intercooler. All of this means that it will have 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque. The transmission is a CVT style and can tow up to 5,000-lbs. The wheel base is 113.8-inches with 153.5 cubic...

Peteast Retractable Dog Leash 16-foot

I have been using a traditional leash for my pup, and previous pups. The good old fashioned leash served me well but had some issues which I didn’t realize until I upgraded to a retractable leash. Read on for the review of the Peteast Retractable Dog Leash after the break. (more…)

The Jim Beam Smart Decanter ($35) pours whiskey on voice command. The voice is from Fred Noe a 7th generation master distiller at Jim Beam. It won’t give you the weather like other voice assistants but it will give you cheeky replies and of course bourbon. “…the decanter includes a sleek compartment for bourbon storage and voice command capabilities. Unlike other smart home devices, “JIM”...

Yep. This is a floating tent called the Shoal Tent made by SmithFly. This is the first tent of it’s kind. It is more of a floating raft with a tent topper on top. Campsite too crowded? No problem, just tie off to shore and float your tent in the lake. The world is your waterbed. There are no tent poles, the tent structure is totally inflatable and when inflatated stands up to high winds without a problem. The raft body has three air...

 

Battery_To_Knife_Video

This beautiful knife started off its life as a bunch of spent batteries (mostly). This talented blacksmith, with tons of time on his hands, recycles old batteries and an old Maglite flashlight (for the handle) into an amazing knife. Video of this batteries to knife metamorphosis after the break. (more…)
