If you have ever been sprayed with pepper spray (OC) you know it is a pretty powerful deterrent and hurts like hell. So why not pair it with a flashlight for home defense? Shockingly there aren’t many companies making this product. This particular one is made by Cobra (and they may already be out of business from the looks of things) and is called the Stunlight ($35). The Cobra Stunlight is a rechargeable LED flashlight and comes with a red aiming...

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.

About two years after releasing the 200GB microSD card (which was the highest-capacity at the time), Sandisk has done it again with a massive 400GB version (SDSQUAR-400G-GN6MA). That is 40 hours of full HD video and transfer speeds of up to 100 MB per second. All of this for the price of $250. Amazing. ...

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...

The OTTOLOCK is a clever take on the age old problem of what bike lock should I use. You can go with the super heavy and slightly more secure locks but you have to lug that weight around with you. And to be fair, all locks, yes all locks, can be compromised rather quickly with the right tools. Think angle grinders, plasma cutters, bolt cutters and the like. If you leave a nice bike locked overnight in the urban jungle it will most likely not make it through...

As a kid I used to think it was strange that the “adults” were always talking about the weather. Fast forward several years and I check the weather every day. What happened to me? Oh well. If I am going to check the weather, I should at least enjoy the website/UI. This website, VentuSKY, allows you to toggle off/on visualizations...

EZ-Load Toilet Paper Holder

Imagine that. Someone finally invented a toilet paper holder that can be changed one-handed. No more fiddling with 1900’s bathroom gadgetry. Not only is this great for kids and folks with arthritis poor sight, it is just great for the masses. You can get your one-handed toilet paper holder for $14 here.

If you haven’t heard of Icon, they are craftsman who reincarnate classic vehicles. They mix the best of old and new to create amazing pieces. The Icon Duesey Watch manages to create something simplistic and timeless. The dial is made of onyx stone, the guts are swiss-made, the strap is alligator skin, and the body is 42mm’s of titanium. There will only be 50 numbered Icon Duesey Watches in the world at a price of $11,500 each. This is not...
