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.    ...

This inexpensive lighter uses a rechargeable battery instead of fuel and a spark instead of a flame. The Tacklife ELY01 will work about 1000 times before needing a recharge and can be charged about 500 times. In other words, it should last a very long time before needing to be retired. The head on Tacklife ELY01 Rechargeable Electric Arc Lighter ($17) is flexible for those tough to reach ignition spots (think bbq grills, gas fireplaces, etc..). Also good for damp and windy conditions as it doesn’t have a flame to blow out. Video...

Elon Musk is great at grabbing headlines. His latest headline grab is in the form of a flamethrower from his Boring Company. This Boring Company Flamethrower ($500) doesn’t have much in the way of specs but it does say it will be the world’s safest. Who knows if that is true or why I pre-ordered one. Going to be a bit tough to explain this one to the wife. ...

Wireless LED Endoscope Snake Light Camera 1

Before you swipe on by and ignore this little gadget, think of all of the times you could have used something like this in the past. Ever lost something in the drain, had to look in a tight spot that like an engine, ever wondered how clean or dirty your clothes dryer vent is…? There are a ton of uses for this inexpensive wireless LED endoscope.

For just $20-$30 you can have your very own 720p camera with built-in LED lighting at the end of a 5-meter semi-rigid cable. I know, it doesn’t sound that exciting… until you need just this tool (and don’t have it). In my best infomercial voice “but wait… there’s more… if you order now you also get the following attachments… a hook, a magnet, and an angled mirror!”.

The wireless endoscope works with iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. (more…)

The Apple computer of easy to fly quadcopters, DJI,  is planning on releasing this new drone copter On 1/23/18 but somehow it snuck out a day early. Again, just like Apple. Wink wink. This little guy looks like a hybrid between a Mavic Pro and a Spark and is named the Mavic Air. Specs for the DJI Mavic Air include a 32-megapixel camera, a 3-way gimbal, 4k video capture, and a panorama mode. Gesture control and obstacle avoidance are still included. Flight time is expected to be about 21-mintues and comes in black, red, and white. A...

Ever wanted to be alerted when motion is detected in your home, office, or garage without having a traditional alarm system? I have, and surprisingly there aren’t many options without subscription based services. I don’t want to add another camera or a costly alarm system. I just want to know when someone is in my garage for example. The only decent option that tends to come up is the D-Link DCH-S150 Wi-Fi Motion Sensor ($29). The DCH-S150 plugs into a standard wall outlet and detects motion up to 26-feet (100-degree horizontal...

The WAERATOR is an electric gadget that sits on top of your wine bottle and does triple duty – it dispenses, aerates, and preserves your wine. Sure it looks like someone stuck a sports car gear shifter on top of a wine bottle, but people seem to like it. It runs on AA batteries and dispenses about 1-ounce of wine per second. Get your drink on. Video of the Waerator after the break. ...
