RC John Deere Tractor provides a glimpse to the world of construction

by Edwin - on October 20, 2014

Now here is a surefire way to tickle the imagination of your children or even grandchildren whenever it comes to play time, using a remote controlled toy. After all, it is through play that children learn a whole lot, and why not pique their interest right from the get go where machinery and perhaps some basic principles of building are concerned? This is what the $119.95 RC John Deere Tractor is all about, where this remote controlled toy is a whole lot more agile than your average tractor, since it is capable of popping a wheelie, spinning around in a circle, as well as perform other tricks that ought to entertain the little ones – at least for a while.

It is based on Deere’s venerable “GP” model which has been more or less omnipresent on farms since the beginnig of time. I jest, since the 1920s, but this model tractor happens to have a behaviour that is more in line with that of a monster truck than anything else, courtesy of its huge, air-filled tires and articulated steering that will allow it to perform sharp turns. It will also be guided by the three-channel 27-MHz transmitter, as the tractor stands on its rear wheels and spin 360°, and should it teeters off balance, there will be a self-correcting mechanism that will right the tractor. A 9.6-volt rechargeable battery keeps it running for up to 45 minutes, and it takes 4 hours to fully recharge.

Revolution USB Turntable gives you one more reason to keep that USB port free

revolutionusbMusic is definitely something that can motivate as well as inspire us, and there are many different modes of delivery when it comes to music. If you happen to feel that vinyl records give that kind of warmth in the music that CDs as well as lossless compression MP3s are unable to do so, and yet sit at the desk with a computer in front of you all day long simply because there is no way for you to lug a full sized turntable to the office. Here is a solution – with the $69.99 Revolution USB Turntable.

The name itself more or less gives the game away, where you will be able to select from blue, green, orange, or turquoise colors. It comes with USB hookup for easy analog-to-digital transfer, and basically takes the record player “out of the box.” This is a truly revolutionary turntable, hence its name, where it takes up an extremely minimal amount of space. The Revolution USB Turntable will run on batteries, and it also holds the distinciton of being the first record-player that has a platter which is smaller compared to that of a teacup saucer. You are able to bring this two-speed turntable along to vinyl swaps, or as mentioned earlier, to the office. The USB hookup paves the way for easy analog-to-digital transfer, and it will be able to handle both 7″ and 12″ records, and play speeds at 33 1/3 and 45 RPM records.

Sol Republic and its Punk rugged portable Bluetooth speaker

by Edwin - on October 20, 2014

sol-republic-punkThere is just this particular effect about music that makes life a whole lot more colorful, fun, and during the down moments, all the more bearable. Of course, some of us would prefer to keep our music listening experience as a private one, while others who are more of an extrovert would prefer to take it public. For those who happen to fall into the latter category, here is Sol Republic with their latest ultra portable, rugged Bluetooth speaker that is known as Punk. Despite the ability of this speaker being able to withstand plenty that you throw at it, it will still be able to fit right into the palm of your hand. This is yet another perfect description of not judging a book by its cover, or in this case, a speaker’s audio quality by its size.

project-avoThere really is no limit to the genius of the human imagination, and sometimes, the little ones are a whole lot more creative when it concerns thinking about solutions to existing problems.

Miito

We’re becoming more and more aware of all the things we’re wasting. Gasoline, energy, water, and much more. Even when we find out how much and of what we’re wasting, we can’t but help but overuse things a little more than we should. Unless it becomes a dangerous situation, it’s easy to forget about how much of an impact several smaller instances can have on the whole. It’s the small things like overfilling your electric kettle with too much water that come into play.

The Pluk Storage system keeps clutter off the kitchen counter

by Caitlyn - on October 20, 2014

Pluk Storage
We try our best to keep our homes mess-free, but it’s a constant struggle. The kitchen is the often the quickest to get dirty as we make our meals there, and forgotten dishes can pile up awfully fast. The counter tops end up becoming a receptacle for all sorts of mail, toys, and food, to the point where it’s hard to see any surface space. The cabinets are usually already full, so it’s a challenge trying to find room for everything.

We’ve all been there, making our way to our car, late at night and alone. You can feel a bit of tension as you try to unobtrusively check out your surroundings, making sure you look tough, even confident… perhaps holding your keys like a weapon. You know you should have had someone walk you to your car, and if you could just find yours, get in it and quickly lock your doors, you vow to never do this to yourself again. How can you, or those you love, be safer? Continue reading » The Defender – Bluetooth Pepper Spray and a Credible Witness in One

Shower Foot Scrubber – practical comfort in style

by Edwin - on October 19, 2014

shower-foot-scubberAfter a particularly long and stressful day at work, it is always a lovely feeling to sink into a tub of hot water, and even better yet if it is a jacuzzi that we are talking about here, as the jets of bubbly water hit your back and massage your body to soothe the day’s stress away. Of course, many of us do take good care of our bodies when it comes to grooming, but the feet tend to be neglected more often than not. How about picking up the $39.95 Shower Foot Scrubber and give your two feet some much needed love instead?

The Shower Foot Scrubber will be able to deliver a spa-style foot treatment in your shower without endangering your safety in the bathroom, since there is no need to bend or to perform a precarious balancing act on a single foot. The scrubber’s suction-cup lined bottom will be able to fix itself securely to a shower stall floor, or you can also have it remain stuck to the side of a bathtub, as it sport upward-facing polypropylene bristles that will mold to the contours of your foot. Each time you wipe your foot back and forth across the brush’s surface, the stiff outer bristles will function like a loofah in order to remove rough or dry skin, while the soft inner bristles gently massage tender spots, and it gets to those tough spots between the toes as wel. There is an integrated stingray-shaped polyolefin plastic pad which allows you to securely plant one foot on a wing while you scrub the other.
