Apparently this is a “thing” as there are multiple manufacturers of this car tent umbrella gadget. I have yet to see one of these car tent things in the real world. For around $239 you can have a remote controlled umbrella for your car. You simply put it on the roof of your car, hit the button on the remote, watch it unfold, then strap it down. Or you could buy a car cover for $20. I’m...

If you are a lonely guy with about $17,000 in extra cash and like to ski/wakeboard, while I am sure there are more, here are two options.  You could buy a used boat for $15,000 and rent some friends and gear with the remaining $2,000.  Or, you could buy this Skier/Wakeboarder Controlled Tow Boat for the full $17,000.  The pictures don't...

The plane has a range of 600-meters and...
