SKLZ Speed Striker makes for a great workout

It’s important be in peak physical condition, but hard to get to that point. You can buy expensive equipment or try and get a gym membership somewhere, but those seem bit daunting after the first or second go. Not to mention that the thought of using something other sweaty people have just used sounds sort of gross.

Napper Alarm Clock lets you choose how long you snooze

When you live a very busy life, your week can seem like one long day with several naps in between. However, sometimes you end up making do with just a nap at night when there are meetings to be at, classes to attend, and projects to work on. When you do wake up, there’s a chance you’ll want just a few minutes of extra sleep, or maybe another hour. But who wants to fumble around and set a brand new…

Does your espresso machine know you by touch?

There are some mornings where you come downstairs, and wish that you had a Starbucks sitting in your kitchen. Making coffee when you’re half awake is quite a feat, let alone a slightly more complex espresso drink. If you would prefer that someone else make your favorite drink in the morning with little to no work from you, you might want The Fingerprint Recognizing Espresso Machine.

ooVoo does free 6-way video calling and more [Daily Freeware]

When most people think about video conferencing, Skype is usually what comes to mind. I use the service for text, voice and video chatting with a number of people. I’ll use the first two with groups of people, however, I can’t say that I’ve done a video conference with more than one person. The main reason for this is because I’m cheap, and don’t feel like paying for the service. Thankfully, there are other video chat clients that let you…

The Military Mosquito Countermeasure

The time for gardening and summer fun shall soon be upon us. Although, with warm weather comes mosquitoes, which no one is particularly fond of. We use candles, sprays, and bug zappers to rid ourselves of them, but they always seem to find a way to our flesh. You’d think that by now we’d have a better way to rid ourselves of these pests.

Would you wear this knuckle duster ring?

Relationships aren’t easy, and sometimes you really have to fight to make it work. Granted, there really shouldn’t be any sort of physical fighting, as that usually isn’t healthy. But if you have a sense of humor, and want to symbolize the struggles of marriage, you might find this ‘Til Death Do Us Part Knuckle Duster rather amusing.

Kids have it rough these days. They have to wait for updates to download on their favorite games before they can play. They have to shut of their cellphones during class. They even have to put forth effort to rip open a bag of candy if they want something sweet.

Marker.to is a virtual highlighter for the web [Daily Freeware]

When in college, it’s common to highlight sections of text in your books, to remember later. This is considerably easier than stopping every few sentences, and then copying down the text into a notebook. When you’re reading something online, you can’t exactly pick up a highlighter and start marking up your screen. However, with the right software, you can accomplish the same thing with your mouse (and without ruining your monitor).

Watch2Pay uses NFC to pay for your transactions

It’s interesting to see how something as simple as paying for your groceries has changed over the years. In the 90’s people primarily payed with cash, or checks. Swiping your debit card seems to be one of the more common ways to check out, but another method has slowly been gaining steam. While it still requires a debit or credit card, contactless NFC payment systems like MasterCard’s PayPass don’t even require you to swipe your card, though you still have…
