From the makers of the original arcade basketball shooting game comes the home version. The Pop-A-Shot allows head-to-head shooting competition. There are 10 different games and 6 audio options. The Home Dual Shot arcade basketball game features more games to choose from—a total of 10, from the classic 1-on-1 :30 game to longer direct competitions and individual skill challenges (skeet shooting and beat the clock). There are also 6 different audio options, including an announcer who calls the game (“That’s a 3!”; “En fuego!”),...

Hasbro has been masterful at turning an old game into a cash cow – Monopoly. Monopoly has been released in so many different versions it is difficult to keep track. The latest rendition of the Monopoly board game is dubbed Monopoly Cheaters Edition. This Cheaters Edition of Monopoly comes with a new set of rules which tend to help cheaters. Assuming you don’t get caught. There are now 15 Cheat Cards each with it’s own set of risky tasks. If you get caught you are handcuffed to the board game. Don’t get caught. Monopoly...

If you are one of the people waiting for the Apple HomePod Smart Speaker, the time has come. Almost. This Friday, January 26th, pre-ordering will be gin for shipments beginning on February 9th (assuming you live in the US, UK, or Australia). If you have never heard of the Apple HomePod it is similar to Amazon Alexa and Google Home but powered by Siri and with different tech. In the future you will...

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” offers groundbreaking shot-pouring functionality that allows legal drinking age consumers to serve up a drink without...

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 Projector and stare at the ceiling, the unit turns off after one hour. Video after...

If you have ever had to deal with a mouse or rat infestation you know how frustrating it can be. They are expert breeders and multiply quite quickly. With every problem comes a multitude of solutions, this one might be the most unique. The “Walk The Plank Mouse Trap” ($25) is similar to the way pirates executed traitors and the like. In this case the plank is mounted on a bucket, with a  ramp to the plank. Once the critter makes its way to the end of the plank they are doomed. The plank is supported by a magnet but can’t...

Just when I started looking at the Google WiFi System I bumped into the Portal WiFi Router. Both have the ability to use mesh networking for expanding out to dead spots. The main difference, is that Portal uses something called FastLanes which enables your WiFi network to operate in a special portion of the 5GHz spectrum that was originally reserved for weather radio systems. If you think of the WiFi congestion going on at your house, apartment, or business imagine it is a freeway. When more people are on the freeway things can slow...

Apple isn’t always first to the game with gadgets, but they are often one of the better options. I am sincerely hoping this is the case with their latest entry into the smart speaker arena. Apples latest gadget is the HomePod ($349) which is landing in the US, UK, and Australia in December of this year. The speaker does similar tricks as the Alexa and Google Home speakers but should blow them all away when it comes to sound quality. At least that is the pitch. You simply talk to the speaker like you would with Siri on your iOS...

Want to drink your cold beer without being harassed or ticketed? The Trinken Lid ($14) snaps on to your beer can and suspends it inside of large t0-go coffee cup from the likes of Starbucks, 7-Eleven, etc… Not only does this hide your beer but it also provides a layer of insulation to help keep it colder, longer. By suspending your beer inside the cup, the layer of air insulates your can, keeping it cold in the summer and your hands warm in the winter.  On a hot day, Trinken Lids will keep your beer cold longer than a traditional...
