Pacific Rim 18″ Cherno Alpha Deluxe Figure lets your imagination run wild

by Edwin - on January 31, 2015

When it comes to action figures, these collectibles are worth picking up – only if you are a fan of the movie or particular franchise (cartoon, comics or otherwise), of course. The children will definitely love you for it, and you can also interact with them during their play time. The thing is, most of these action figures tend to be made out of plastic, with a simple paint job slapped on them, and you will need to make extra use of your imagination when it comes to lights and sounds. Not so with the $99.99 Pacific Rim 18″ Cherno Alpha Deluxe Figure though.

This old timer Cherno Alpha stands more than ready to defend your toys from Kaiju attack, where it boasts of having more than 20 points of articulation, including them deadly sliding X-14 Tesla Fists. Not only that, they come chock full of LED lights, and was specially created straight from the digital files used by ILM in the making of Pacific Rim, before obtaining additional detailing by top sculptors and fabricators so that it looks like the classic beauty that it was on the silver screen. The movable Z-14 Tesla Fists will boast of fingers, thumb, and extending action, and it is not nuclear powered, but runs on half a dozen LR44 batteries.

USB Heated Air Hug Pillow keeps you warm and comfortable

usb-heated-hug-air-pillowWhen winter hits, it can get bitterly cold for sure in selected areas of the world. However, this does not mean that you need to skimp on your comfort – and keeping warm should be right at the top of your agenda, too. Apart from wearing stuff like down jackets when you are outside, how about during those moments when you are at home? Snuggling up to someone else is definitely a nice feeling, but if you so happen to be single that particular night, check out this $56 USB Heated Air Hug Pillow.

Thanko’s warm inflatable dakimakura is the answer to the question which will involve being comfortable as well as well heated up when the mercury drops. All you need to do is to wrap yourself around this uniquely shaped hug pillow, and you can then feel the USB-powered warmth of up to 36°C (96.8°F) – which is more or less close to the average temperature of a human body. It will arrive with a plain cover, but this does not mean you cannot expand on its design with an anime or other character cover. When not in use, it can be folded away for easy storage. Far more useful than an aromatherapy pillow, don’t you think so?

Ditch your purse for a pair of Double Agent Shoes

Double Agent Shoes

If you’re the type who enjoys donning a dress and heels for a night out on the town, you know a purse is likely going to go with you. Not wearing pants means no pants pockets, and no place to put your phone, wallet, keys, gum, or anything else you might need to carry. If you wish you didn’t have to lug a bag around, then why not make a part of your outfit a little more functional?

The Heated Hat stops noggins from going numb

Heated Hat

When it’s bitterly cold outside, your internal temperature is not enough to keep you warm. You can put on layers of long sleeves and fleece-lined leggings, but if you’re out for long the cold will eventually start to seep in. If you have trouble staying warm at all times of the year rather than just winter, you’ll have to double your efforts.

Clap Or Tap Block Clock – either way, it will be silenced

by Edwin - on January 30, 2015

clap-tap-block-clockGetting enough sleep is one thing – but to be able to wake up in the morning is another, especially when you have not obtained the right amount of sleep in the night before, hence leaving you with extremely heavy eyelids that are reluctant to open up the next day. Well, the right kind of alarm clock – one that gives out an almighty din would definitely be worth checking out, and even more so if it is difficult to shut off. We have seen some cool alarm clocks in the past, and this time around, here is the $79.95 Clap Or Tap Block Clock.

Specially disguised to resemble that of a simple block of wood, this is a cordless digital clock which will show off the time whenever you activate it. How does the Clap Or Tap Block Clock get activated? The answers are in the name itself – you can rely on touch, or to clap your hands, which would result in sound. This is perfect for those who find that the constant glare of an ordinary clock could prove to be a stumbling block when it comes to sleep, while the wood cuboid’s innocuous exterior would be able to conceal its true purpose nicely. Time is shown in large, easy-to-read blue LED numerals, and you can set it to alternate between the time, date, and room temperature, or simply to show off the current time only. There are three separate alarms and the all important snooze function to boot.

Retro Nintendo Famicom Battery & Card Reader delivers nostalgia to your desk

by Edwin - on January 30, 2015

retro-famicom-nintendo-controller-battery-pack-card-readerWe live in a world where there are any different kinds of memory cards in play, and it can be pretty difficult trying to keep track of what is stored where. A memory card reader would definitely come in handy where accessing various kinds of memory cards on your computer is concerned, and instead of taking the road well traveled, why not try something different – something that will be able to kickstart a conversation even with strangers while you work? I am referring to the $112 Retro Nintendo Famicom Battery & Card Reader, and the name itself pretty much says it all.

After all, those who grew up in the era of 8-bit gaming would be familiar with Nintendo’s Famicom, which is also marketed in the US as the Nintendo Entertainment System, or NES for short. The latter has a grey design with red buttons, while the Famicom over in Japan has a gold shade with red livery. This Battery & Card Reader will come in the Famicom controller design, where it packs in a 3,600mAh battery that comes in handy to charge up power hungry devices, as well as is capable of reading a microSD memory card. Each purchase comes with a strap so that you can attach it somewhere in a jiffy.

The Blade offers security for your laptop and tablet in public areas

by Edwin - on January 30, 2015

blade-security-lockNotebooks (or laptops) as well as tablets are pretty much devices that one is unable to live without in this day and age. After all, these are useful when it comes to being productive while one is on the road, but you know what they say – there is always the risk of the notebook or tablet getting stolen, especially when you are out in a public space or area. After all, the world is not what it used to be, and honesty is starting to run low in social circles. Having that kind of fear playing at the back of one’s mind is not too healthy actually, so what kind of preventative measures can you take? Of course, not purchasing a notebook or tablet in the first place is one of them, but it would not make much sense if either are essential to your livelihood. To not bring them out? No go, too. Why not get a notebook lock? Sounds good, but you might as well go the whole nine yards with The Blade, which happens to be a revolutionary universal laptop and tablet lock.
