Tired of the bigger is better trend happening with smart phones? Tired of smart phones of any size? Time for one of the world’s smallest cell phones that you can even wear on your head like an old bluetooth device. This tiny phone ($19) is just 2.44 inches tall and does most things a cell phone should do; it has voicemail, call record, mp4 player, bluetooth dialing, and comes unlocked.

Good news. The police have another less-lethal option for their already overloaded duty belts. The BolaWrap 100 shoots a kevlar tether to entangle people at a range of 10-25 feet. Perfect for the crazy person that doesn’t quite deserve the taser yet. Existing less lethal devices rely on “pain compliance”, increasing the chance of injury or aggression, and complicating apprehension. The BolaWrap 100 is a restraint tool for Police and Military which can be used early in an encounter between officer and suspect in order to prevent...

Nikon-Coolpix-P1000

I thought I wanted a DSLR camera but didn’t want to have to sell my kids to add a lens here and there. So, I started checking out the slightly more compact Nikon COOLPIX P1000 which is what I will call DSLR-like. The zoom lens on the COOLPIX P1000 ($996) is insane at 24-3000mm (125x).

Imagine being able to zoom far beyond the reach of standard telephoto lenses, to capture not just the moon, but the craters, peaks and valleys of its surface. Imagine being able to view the International Space Station in flight, even the rings of Saturn—not with a telescope, but with a one-of-a-kind Nikon camera. Introducing the COOLPIX P1000, the most extreme zoom Nikon ever, and a game-changer for birders, sports and wildlife enthusiasts, travel photographers and even those aspiring to venture to the moon and beyond without leaving their backyard.

Medieval Skull With Horns Mug 1

If you need to make a statement at work, or your next party, this is the mug that says IDGAF. Remember the Office Space movie where the fed up dude cleans a fish at his desk? Well this mug isn’t that gangsta but it certainly sends a message.  Here is the fish cleaning scene for reference.

This Medieval Mug is 5.11 inches tall and 7.48 inches wide and can hold 450 Ml (15 Oz). It is made of food grade stainless steel and resin. It doesn’t matter if you are drinking coffee or beer out if this bad boy, it certainly will trump (ouch, no pun intended) the other mugs in the room. Yours for just $23 here. (more…)

Let me just get this part out of the way, I am currently a fan of Google’s Nest line of cameras. They are proven, have fair priced recording options, and work outdoors (the outdoor version of course). That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more competitors. While good, the Nest cameras have plenty of places they can improve. Enough on that for now. Amazon is having their 2018 prime day sale and have cut the cost of their Amazon Cloud Cam by 50%, just $59.99 for now. Hurry up though as I think it goes back to $119 after...

Maybe solar isn’t your thing. Maybe you will need recharging while along side a running river. Heck, maybe you will be in some seriously windy areas. Time for a Waterlily Turbine Charger ($159) which uses wind/water power for charging up your USB devices. the waterlily weighs 2.86 lbs, can withstand water currents up to 6.8 mph, wind speeds ups to 55 mph, and even comes with a 2600 man battery bank. Not enough reviews to know what the masses think.    ...

polimaster PM1208M

With the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster still fresh in our minds some folks want to know if, and when, they come into contact with radioactive material. This watch is about 1/3 the cost of typical radiation detecting watches at $320.

The Polimaster PM1208M continuously monitors radiation and counts radiation dose exposure. The watch will alert an audible alarm when it detects high radiation emissions. It also tells time with a Swiss Ronda 763 quartz movement.

Trying to hang multiple framed pictures together on a wall sucks. Trying to line them up perfectly is a bit maddening. I tend to prefer eyeballing them instead of measuring. With that said, trying to line up a new nail with the frame hanger is tougher than you would think. Enter this easy hanger gadget. This simple, and inexpensive ($8), gadget makes placing the hole in the right place every time. You simply  use the hook on the back of the gadget, position the picture on the wall where you want it, remove the picture and press the...

Tesla Autopilot Buddy

This magnetic gadget tricks the Tesla Autopilot system in to thinking that the driver has their hands on the wheel. Why would you want to do this? Well, the short answer is so that you can let the Tesla do the driving without having the autopilot system shutoff when your hands aren’t on the steering wheel. No need to over think this one, it is a bad idea.
