Tiny Strong Like Bull Magnets Hold Up Dumbbells

Post a Comment

The gig is up, because the quarter and half-dollar size Strong Like Bull Magnets can hold two and five pound dumbbells up, respectively, from anywhere there is a flat surface!

The pint-sized power of magnets can no longer be concealed beneath heavy hunks of metal.

These tiny button magnets are housed in a shiny aluminum casing with a flat front and back.

Why use an entire toolbox that squirrels away your intrinsic tools and hides them from view right when you need them most?

Any motor vehicle with a data port, or a computer, can wield a Vinli.

Even my beater – a 1996 Camaro with its buckled frame and the charming hole in the passenger side front fender – can serve as a smart car now that the Roku of car devices can plug easily into the car’s antiquated data port.

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).

Post a Comment

If you were wondering how the dark knight could possibly go out and about in daylight on the sunny slopes of a lush, green golf course it will come as no surprise that the Gotham Golfcart was constructed to provide an armored ride to that dangerous 18th hole.

Initial thought: geek-gasm. This thing is in production right now. Order if you dare.

The Johammer J1 Does 125 Miles on a Single Charge

Post a Comment

Until now the electric motorcycle market has been a bit of a snoozefest, hampered by boring designs and limited range but, the Johammer J1 not only looks different, it is different.

This team of Austrian designers claim to have built the first electric motorcycle with a range of 125 miles. They haven’t quite cracked the 200+ mile range of their combustion cruiser counterparts but a 3+ hour ride at a leisurely country road speed is all my butt can handle anyway.

1 Comment

We’ve all been there, driving down those spooky, unlit country roads in the dead of night. Some people are brave stupid enough to cycle or even walk down them. Now, thanks to a new glow in the dark paint, Dutch country roads will be a whole lot safer (although possibly spookier).

Post a Comment

Don’t be fool by its bite-sized frame and cartoon-like paint job, this toy car replica can be as much of a joyride as any Lamborghini or Ferrari, well… sort of.

You know those tiny, plastic Little Tikes Crazy Coups that kids enjoy so much? Well, apparently British mechanic John Bitmead has a similar fascination. But instead of peddling his way around the front lawn with his feet, he built his own adult-sized version that can reach speeds of up to 70 mph.
