Normally I prefer roasting or BBQing outdoors, but this is definitely an exception because s’mores smell so damn good. The Nostalgia SMM200 Indoor Electric Stainless Steel S’more Maker ($30) is perfect for some indoor s’more cooking.

This gadget came to mind because of the upcoming holidays. There are always too many devices looking for a charge when folks visit for the holidays and not enough charge cable. This 6-Device Charging Station (with cables) should solve the problem and is also a great gift for others. You get 6 USB ports, 4 lighting cables, 1 microUSB cable, 1 USB type C cable, and even a removable Apple Watch holder for charging. Pretty slick. All this for
What is this bit of beer magic? It is the Fizzics DraftPour Beer Dispenser ($125). This beer gadget turns your existing
mediocre beer into a nitro-like draft beer with ‘Micro-Foam’ technology. It runs off of USB power or two AA batteries. Imagine being able to take a Budweiser beer and add some nitro-style micro-foam. Pretty cool.

Too far away from April Fools to be a joke and way to elaborate. This yard robot autonomously patrols the yard looking for dog poop piles to scoop up. About time!
This cool robot is from Beetl Robotics and looks like a little green and white tractor. The Beetl Poop Robot uses computer vision and sensors to locate poop in your yard, hovers over the top and deploys its jaws and shears to scoop the poop. Pretty cool stuff.

I am a big fan of making the home a smarter place. I have smart locks (the Nest X Yale Lock and the Yale Assure Lock SL), smart switches, smart plugs, smart sensors, etc… I prefer the Apple HomeKit enabled ecosystem as Apple is one of the rare tech companies that still cares about customers privacy. The only downsides of these Yale smart locks is that they are bit bulky...
I like this one. A bit of recycling stuff that otherwise would have made it directly to the landfill. In this case, old roadside billboard advertisements get a second life as high-quality tarps.
