Sand by Brookstone – What is this magic?!

There’s something comforting about playing with wet sand. It reminds you of being at the beach, and not having to worry about schedules, work, or responsibilities. The only problem is that you don’t really want to keep a cup of wet sand on your desk, as that is just a mess waiting to happen. If sand had similar properties to Play-Doh, then things would be a lot easier wouldn’t they?

Sony 3D Camcorder Binoculars – get the best of all worlds close up and personal

The whole 3D thing may be dead (or dying) but there are still products out there which make good use of the technology if you’re in need. These Sony 3D Camcorder Binoculars are a good case in point. There’s no doubt that combining high power binoculars with a decent resolution camera should deliver great results, but up till now it seems no one has been able to do it properly.

The Hibermate – sleep like you’ve never slept before

The worst things to contend with when you’re trying to sleep are light and sound. Even if you’re normally good at sleeping in a noisy environment or ignoring the brightness (that you can somehow see even though your eyes are closed), there are some nights where you just can’t take it. You can make a B-line for your ear plugs and mask, but they have a nasty habit of falling off or coming out during the course of the night.

Keep letters from grandma safe with the Secure Mail Vault

There’s a very good reason you’re not supposed to snatch another person’s mail. You can find credit cards, bank statements, and more in this tiny box that could essentially ruin a person’s life if placed in the wrong hands. While not everyone is going to go out of their way to steal mail, that doesn’t mean that some aren’t going to try.

Kinto Carat Japanese Coffee Maker is straightforward and simple

For most of us, the morning  ritual includes preparing coffee. It is our lifeblood, and the only way we can walk into work with a smile on our faces. We want the process to be as easy as possible, because we don’t have full-capacity brain function at the wee hours of the morning. Forgetting a filter or not putting water in the reservoir can start off your day in the worst way, so why not the streamline the operation?

MagicSIM Elite – how to convert your Samsung Galaxy S4, S3 or other smartphone to dual SIM in 3 minutes [Review & Giveaway]

There’s very little you can’t do with a good quality smartphone nowadays, including making phone calls. Yeah really. But joking aside, the one thing we think is missing from big brand smartphones is the ability to run two SIMs in your phone, which you could use for both business and pleasure, or for foreign and home SIMs when on vacation.

The Skooba Design Cable Stable will round up those wild cables and devices

It’s funny how many different devices you can accumulate over time. There are job-specific gadgets and gizmos that feel like a necessity, but when you travel it’s rather worrisome that you might lose a power cable or adapter along the way. You want to keep them all in one spot like a backpack or a messenger bag, but even then you have to search around your bag to make sure you have everything. Being somewhere without a way to charge…

Whack-A-Mole Space Invaders Keychain Game?

Thinking back on Space Invaders, I remember mashing a button as many times as I can whilst dodging lines raining down upon my head. As time ticks on, you get more and more jumpy, fearing alien invaders will come down and blow you to smithereens. The music (if you can call it that) isn’t helping of course, and when a flying saucer comes onto the screen, your focus is no longer shifted to destroying the hoard of enemies coming toward…

Put some pep in your step with the Adidas Springblade

It’s nearly impossible to only have one pair of shoes. What may be appropriate for a day of hiking is not going to work at a dinner party. Most of the time the variety is only form-based and situation specific. However, when it comes to activities such as sports or dancing, you want foot covering that serves a purpose, such as ballet shoes or cleats. There always seems to be a newer, better version of running shoes which are supposed…
