Money counter.

Money Counter and Counterfeit Detector. $199.95. Hmm…wonder if you need to have cash to justify getting one of these? Or whether shoving two crinkled grubby notes through the slot repeatedly with a wild cackle will push us into the big time? Sigh.  How quickly can you count 900 $20 bills? We bet you can’t do it in a minute, while spotting phony bills. This incredibly portable machine is that fast and that smart. Whether you’re a shop owner or weekend swap meet vendor,…

Single Roll Skater.

The Singleroll Skater. $99.98. The illegitimate offspring of a torrid affair between a skateboard from the wrong side of the tracks and a glamorous set of waxy downhill skis. We warned them that nothing good would come of it and now look.  You rock your body side-to-side like in-line skating, you use the poles for balance and speed like skiing, and you stand on a deck much like a skateboard! Race, slalom, do turns, do downhill, or skate straight–all while improving…

LCD Watch.

The DM1B LCD Watch. Chunka-delic. With big bright numerals, alarm, chrono and day/date. Mmm…£29.99.  We LOVE LED Watches but we also LOVE Dot Matrix LCD display watches – they are not easy to find and this CONNECT model is just about the best with it’s unique vertical display, large digits that can be read at a glance. The upright style resembles Fossil’s Starck watch but this model is much cooler and has a far superior feature set.
