1 Comment

Do Dad a service this Father’s Day and get him a set of the Michelin Smart Jumper Cables for each member of the family so he can stop worrying about who will be stranded, who will electrocute themselves, and who will fry their car’s sophisticated computer (I know my Dad will be happy).

This is the simplest of gadgets and is oh so useful!

Chances are your car does not have a gauge and so your dummy light goes on when your battery is already dead, leaving you stranded, or your car has a dial that you’ve ignored while your battery went quickly from three to six years old and became drained during a sub-zero degree winter morn just before work (or worse while trying to leave work at dusk).

Squeeze and Zackees LED Turn Signal Gloves Flash

Post a Comment

There are few revelations when it comes to bicycling technology and turn signals, but the Zackees LED Turn Signal Gloves are the exception to the rule.

Simple. Elegant. Comfortable. Safe.

These are the components of the Zackees Turn Signal Gloves.

If you are like me and most biking takes place on the trails and you have gone on to take off your reflectors (for the sake of weight loss, of course), you often wear dark clothing, and you often bike on a busy highway at dusk to get back to your car parked outside of the mountain biking park, Zackees can be a life saver.

The Because International Shoe Actually Grows With Kids

Post a Comment

Sometimes the best gadgets are the simplest ones, and the Because International Shoe has invented an affordable, comfortable, and durable show that actually grows with kids as their feet quickly leapfrog sizes as they grow up.

NES-flask

To be perfectly frank here: playing “Duck Hunt” is still fun.

A new twist on the 8-bit duck shooting marksmanship NES title is to grip the Nintendo Zapper (gun) and try and outplay your friends as you drink to every one of the missed shots, and twice for every time that ugly dog shows his head and laughs at you for missing all of the flying quacks.

Post a Comment

Save yourself a lot of money by avoiding smart TV’s and still get all of the voice command, Netflix, HBO, among 2000 online streaming channels, in the new Sharp television series with built-in Roku’s.

Sharp-Roku-TV

Smart TV’s are often expensive.

Why spend two or three grand on a super smart LED model that’s clumsier software will be obsolete, despite their rare updates, while the Roku’s software is constantly updated and upgraded?
