EyeAlert helps you stay connected with your Bluetooth phone or gadget

There are four million mobile phones left in taxis each and every day by forgetful people. OK, so we’re probably exaggerating a touch, but it’s a huge number in any case, and we bet that every one of those good folk said ‘it’ll never happen to me’. The fact is that we do forget things all the time, and it can be massively annoying and disruptive.

Right Angle USB 3.0 Adapter gets you out of tight spots at speed

For some reason this clever little Right Angle USB 3.0 Adapter really makes sense to me. There’s been a bunch of times when I’ve had to wrestle with USB devices because the computer or other bit of equipment has been jammed up against a wall, at which point I would have been really pleased to have this little fella along for the ride. The fact that it also sports the super fast USB 3.0 spec is a bonus, as is…

Device Charging Business Case keeps your gadgets powered up on the go

There are few things more frustrating than finding yourself out and about on a business trip in a strange place and suddenly realising you’re almost out of power for your Important Little Gadgets. Sure you can find a nearby power socket if you’re brave enough to leech without blushing in a restaurant or airport lobby, but for most of us, it can induce something very close to gadget panic.

Oxy Clearlight offers targeted treatment for spots and acne

If our face is our fortune, then spots and acne are thieves in the night. For one thing we can never predict when they’ll appear, and often it’s just when we least need the visit, like just before an interview or an all important first date. The traditional treatment is to keep the area clean and apply any of the products in the catalogs, but it’s often too little too late.

Digital BMI Body Mass Analyzer says you don’t look fat in that at all

Nowadays it’s not enough to know your weight, your DNA structure and your genetic ancestry, you need to keep tabs on just about every inch of your physical body, otherwise you’re accused of being a slob.

Ghost Hunting Starter Kit makes you the one they’re gonna call

There are times when you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, and if that includes donning a strange outfit and creeping round dark, dank houses carrying some exotic equipment, then so be it.

USB 3.0 Quadruple SATA HDD Dock says you can never have too many external drives

If you’re like me, you’ve got a bunch of legacy hard drives lying around which have accumulated from years of upgrades, broken computers and other such tragedies relating to obsolescent gear. These drives never go home to their disk heaven, they just lurk around cluttering up drawers and shelves. If only there was a way, Santa, to use them productively and gain some extra storage space at the same time.

Nixie Ramos Alarm Clock takes annoying wake up to a new level

There are lots of alarm clocks in the world, and they seem to be getting more popular by the year. A symptom perhaps of our problems with getting up in the morning? Well anyhoo, the key challenge apparently seems to be making it hard enough to switch off the alarm so you wake up properly, and not so hard that you dig the sledgehammer out of the closet. What you don’t have a hammer in your closet? Tsk.

We’re desperately trying to work out why you would need to embed an xGB flash memory drive inside a whistle, but we’re failing to come up with anything. You’re worried about being mugged and your accounts data being stolen? You live in a foggy city and often get lost on your way to work? You act as a part-time referee at the weekends and need to keep the game rules close to hand at all times?

Cool EZSAVE LockDock HDD Dock keeps your data really really extra safe

There’s no such thing as too much security when it comes to your really important data, but unfortunately keeping our stuff safe is often too much of a hassle to bother with. This is especially true if you use an external hard drive dock for your data, which is something that more people are doing as a cheap and easy option for backup and archiving.

Kalkhoff 24ah Lithium Battery extends standard electric bicycle range to 200 km

Electric bicycles are definitely becoming more popular as a form of commuter and leisure transport. They’re relatively cheap, very economical to run and have the added benefit of improving our health at the same time as we travel. In fact the only real drawback to them has been the meagre range you can get from a normal bike, unless you’re prepared to carry two batteries or a charger with you to work.
