You wake up. You’re tired. You’re not looking forward to the tough day ahead. A cup of coffee helps. A cup of flavored foamy latte helps even more. Heck, I think this foaming latte gadget could just set the stage for a great day.

The International Delight One Touch Latte comes in three flavors (vanilla, caramel, and mocha) and magically transforms a boring coffee into something much more exciting. The steps for making your latte are pretty simple;

  1. Fill cup 2/3 with coffee.
  2. Shake up your One Touch Latte gadget.
  3. Press firmly to froth.
  4. Enjoy!

I am a big fan of Apple Maps now that they have gotten better and don’t send me on wild goose chases. With that said, I often find myself using the Waze app when going on longer trips or when I may be driving a bit faster than the speed limit. For those of you not familiar with the Waze app, it uses crowd sourced data to update you of a where the cops are hiding (and other things as well). Pretty cool app. The Escort Max 360C ($700) might just be the next purchase as it not only uses crowd data for spotting police but also has...

Captain_Xavier_Nerf_Rival

The Nerf Rival blasters can fire foam balls at up to 70 miles per hour. Pretty awesome right out of the box. Impressive, but not enough for YouTube’s Captain Xavier, who modded his Nerf Rival with a spinning feeder and a 2,000-shot backpack. If you do the math, that is about 20 foam balls for every second. If this heavily modded Nerf Rival has the trigger held down, it will devour 2,000 rounds in just over a minute and a half. Video of Captain Xavier and his crazy Nerf gun after the break. (more…)

You can’t make this stuff up. Subtle Butt ($12 for 5) are antimicrobial activated charcoal pads that stick on to the inside of underwear to neutralize odors that pass through it. Who knows if it actually works. I certainly can’t test it as I don’t fart. This product raises so many questions that I had to list them. How did this product actually go from a bad idea to a real product? How did this product get over 300 reviews on Amazon? Who came up with the tagline “takes the bad part out of the fart”? Is...

Taking pictures of your dog can be tricky. They can have the attention span of a gnat, unless of course there is a ball involved. This clever smartphone gadget clips on your phone without blocking the camera and holds a tennis ball which guarantees Fido’s attention. Check out some of the dog selfies that were taken with the Pooch Selfie ($12.99).       ...

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. Stirling Dynamics plans to speed things up with the WheelTug, a self-driving nose wheel for the Boening 737NG airplane....

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...
