Tool mashups are great. Who doesn’t love the old Swiss Army Knives? The less I have to carry the better. This carabiner, dubbed the Firebiner, adds a few tools to the mix, the main one being the sparker for lighting fires. The Firebiner also has a stainless steel safety blade, screwdriver, and a bottle...

Foldimate
Folding laundry seems like a neverending task, one that I am quite good at, but it takes quite a bit of time. I love the idea of a laundry folding robot, like the Foldimate, however, I am a bit of a skeptic. I mean, heck, my work copier only has to deal with perfectly flat paper and it jams on the daily.

Time will tell if this $1,000 Foldimate laundry folding machine will work as good as the demo video. I sure hope so. Check out the video after the break. (more…)

This jewel is from the folks at Sportsman’s Guide, and they can be yours for just $45. A bulletproof vest makes sense, for sure, but you should also protect your bits as well.

I am not a fan of the “new” Mini Cooper’s. My experience is that Mini Coopers are happiest when they are at the mechanic getting repaired. However, I do like the rally version that was built by X-raid and JCW (John Cooper Works). This mashup has been in the works for quite some but major changes have occured recently, like switching from 4×4 to rear-wheel drive and engine updates. Today’s MINI JCW Buggy retains the BMW Group supplied six-cylinder diesel engine used for the 2018 Dakar, but the turbocharger system...

Tesla Sentry Mode Cookie Monster

The recently released, and already updated, Tesla Sentry Mode is a security feature for its EVs that uses the front-facing dash cam and the side cameras to record and dissuade break-ins. Apparently, every car should have a sentry mode as Tesla vehicles have already caught thieves and people damaging cars.

The latest story from ABC 7 news, is about San Francisco-based Jed Franklin and how his Tesla has already helped to make an arrest. He received an alert on his phone, via the Tesla app, that said his Sentry Mode had been activated. Upon arriving at his car he found a broken window. After downloading the cars security camera video he saw a clear image of the suspect’s face and the license plate of his car. This evidence was handed over to the police, who subsequently made an arrest.

The more this type of thing happens, and makes the news, the more criminals will take note. Tesla break-ins may become a thing of the past. Check out a few of the Tesla “caught in the act” videos after the break. (more…)
