Push Button Key Light

How many times have you walked out to your car in a parking lot, or up to the door of your home and had the sudden fear that someone is there too, watching you? Obviously, the first response you have is to get where you’re going as fast as possible. This will take away some of that feeling of being vulnerable, but opening the lock to that safe haven now feels like it’s going to take forever. Outside is dark,…

Bulletproof Polo has more than meets the eye

They say that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but that metaphor applies to all sorts of things. Take shirts, for instance. You might glance at the polo above, and think that it’s nothing more than an ordinary shirt. However, you would be far from correct. This shirt can stop bullets.

Split Decision Pie Pan gives you the best of both worlds

My grandmother used to make one pie a day, and it would be devoured before breakfast the next morning. That was back when every day was lots of hard work, home cooked meals were filled with calories, and it was only to keep up your strength. When you make pies everyday, there is a little variety in the mix. Don’t like Monday’s pie? Wait until Tuesday or Wednesday and have something new. Nowadays, we don’t eat pie as often, but…

Would you pay $6,400 to sit in this chair/desk hybrid?

How many hours per day do you spend at your desk? Personally, I’ll spend up to 14 hours in the same spot each day, during the week. Much like your bed, it’s important that if you spend a large amount of time in the same place, it should be comfortable. The real question is just how far you’re willing to go to get that comfort. If money is no object, then you might want to look into this Emperor 1510…

Subbuteo Giant Inflatable Pitch

I remember going to carnivals when I was a kid, and always heading straight for the bounce houses. Sure, I’d been on a trampoline before, but you had limited space for jumping, and there were no walls to bounce off of. Unfortunately now that I’m an adult, they tend to give you mean looks and point to the sign that says I’m too tall to use the bounce house. If you’re just as disappointed as I am about such things,…

Use Air Playit to stream content to your Android or iOS device [Daily Freeware]

Smartphones and tablets are great to carry around, as they can carry out many different tasks for you, including playing music and videos. Unfortunately for those people with large libraries of media, these devices can’t quite hold it all. And those with older devices might not have more than a few gigabytes to store it all on. That’s why streaming is a good way to get the content you want onto your phone, and Air Playit looks like it could…

EverSense adjusts your home’s temperature when you get close

We’re all looking for ways to cut corners in this bad economy. Of course, we still want to “keep up with the Joneses” as the saying goes. The only way we can do that is if we spend money knowing that we’re going to get a huge return on what we’ve spent. It seems that the EverSense thermostat is trying to be one of those items that will not only save you money, but will combine several functions into one…

Turbine Steampunk Fob Watch is solar powered

It’s no secret that I have a love for steampunk. I’m always on the lookout for items that incorporate the style into functional objects. One of my favorite things to see steampunked is a pocket watch. Unfortunately most of the ones I see look interesting, but are still nothing but battery-powered timepieces at their core. However, this Solar Powered Turbine Fob Watch has a bit more to it.

Boycott SOPA – Android app scans barcodes to help identify SOPA supporters

Boycott SOPA is a free Android application which scans barcodes to help you identify manufacturers which are SOPA supporters. The idea is for you to use it when out shopping to make sure you’re not inadvertently supporting this attack on the Internet by spending money on a supporter made product. Yes sure, I know that the legislators claim to have ditched the act, but PIPA is still in the pipeline and there will be other attempts to do this kind of…

Show your opposition to SOPA/PIPA by participating in Internet Blackout on Wednesday

There’s a word that’s been floating around for the last few months that strikes fear into the hearts of internet users everywhere. SOPA. It stands for the Stop Online Piracy Act, and it threatens to disrupt the entire internet as we know it. Essentially, it gives copyright holders the ability to make entire websites disappear from the internet for hosting infringing material. What’s more is that even if the infringing material comes from a user who uploaded it to the…

SolarKindle charges your eReader in the sun

It seems that books are starting to slowly filter out of homes, and eReaders and tablets are taking their place. Though it is a bit sad to see them go, the environment is probably a little happier about the shift. Even with these kinds of devices though, it takes energy to power them, which can be costly, and still have some adverse effects on the environment. Which is why cases like the SolarKindle can come in rather handy.
