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…)

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”...

“I don’t always drink whiskey, but when I do…” The line of Prestige Decanters take the job of holding your precious booze quite seriously. They are hand-blown, lead-free, decanters made in the USA. Kentucky to be exact. Prefect for the guy/gal who has everything and just in time for the holidays. ...

Rollie_Eggmaster

This one just had me laughing while reaching for my credit card. Not sure why I need my eggs cooked into the shape of a hotdog, but I do. In this case a video does this product, the Rollie Egg Cooker, better justice. Check it out after the break. (more…)

Propane patio heaters are nice when working properly. I say “working properly” because, as the price is being driven down by cheaper and cheaper units (made in China) the quality seems to be following. The metal is flimsy and igniter/gas flow issues have had my propane heater working about 60% of the time. So much for a convenient heater on cold nights. Enter the gravity fed outdoor wood pellet heater by Wood Pellet Products, the Lil Timber ($349)....

Drones, and DJI specifically, have come a long way in the last few years. Flight distances, telemetry, obstacle avoidance, silky smooth gimbals, high quality cameras, and size reduction are just a few of the areas that have improved massively. DJI has just addressed two more issues in an effort to perfect the quadcopter with their latest DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The Mavic Pro Platinum has an 11% gain in flight time (30 minutes) and a 60% reduction in noise (4dB less). The

Panasonic_Robotic_Refrigerator

Panasonic envisions a future where the refrigerator will come to you when you call it over. “Bring me a cold beer”… and along comes the Panasonic robotic fridge. Originally intended for folks with mobility issues, I imagine this will quickly land in lazy peoples homes as well.

A new Nest thermostat has landed, the Nest Thermostat E. Not sure about the name but let’s talk about what is different/new. Not much. The Nest Thermostat E now has a frosted LCD screen, a white bezel, a slightly smaller diameter (3.19 instead of 3.3). It also comes, out of the box, with a pre-set schedule to start saving money right away. TaDaaaaa. ...

This Ocean Wave Projector ($19) is pretty cool. Pretty cool for your next psychedelic party or if you just have a tough time falling asleep. The ocean wave projector creates a relaxing visual display (in dark rooms) on any surface you point it at, mainly the ceiling. There are seven colors and brightness settings. There is even a built-in speaker for playing music but the quality of said speaker is suspect. For me, it is about sleep. Turn on the Ocean Wave...
