Stirring Mug

Gevalia Stir Mug

The perfect cup for the lazy coffee drinker: you don’t have to find a teaspoon because it stirs itself, and even keeps your coffee warm!

The full post can be found at S2999.


Retro Watch

Old School Dial Telephone Watch

The Zihotch Retro Phone Watch resembles an old school rotary telephone on your wrist. There are no numbers, hands, or screens to tell you the time. You have to dial 117 and a voice speaks the time to you. If you dial wrong it says that number is not in service. If you forget which number to dial, you end up with an expensive rotary telephone bracelet.

vts camera car

VTS Camera Car: No Height Restrictions Required!

The VTS Camera Car is the ultimate remote control car giving the driver the ability to see from the perspective of the cockpit using a pair of LCD goggles. The goggles respond to the driver, turning their head left, right, up and down.

The full post can be found at Gaj-It.


Auto Remote Truck Starter

Auto Remote Truck Starter

Now this is a very useful gadget for your truck, specially on those frozen days at winter. You can remotely start your car, turn on the air-conditioning, the radio, whatever!

The full post can be found at 4×4 Trucks and Trailers.


flash plate

Scrolling Led License Plate Flash Frames

Pretty cool gadget for your car. With this frame you can add personalized texts to your car license plate so that the car behinds you reads it. Imagine the usefulness… saying “Hi” to that lovely lady behind you or even tell that ugly guy “horning” to get lost!

The full post can be found at Car Tuning Central.


Digital Camera Swim Mask

Digital camera of the deep

If you’ve ever tried to take pictures underwater and failed miserably, this is the perfect gadget. This 5MP digital camera mask switches easily between photo and video mode and has a built-in memory and additional microSD slot.

The full post can be found at Decide What to Buy.


Concept Pool PC

The Pool PC, aka PC of the Swim-Rings, is a waterproof computer that has a small place so you can attach a swim ring. Then all you need to do is lay back in the ring, let your body float, and you are free to check email, surf the web, or anything else you want to do on your computer

I like the Flash Plates!

Tell the rear guy to go #@#*

There are some minor mistakes on your post by the way.

It’s Trucks and Trailers and not Trucks and Trailors, and also, the Poll options are repeating some text there:

vts camera car VTS Camera Car (repeating)
flash plate Scrolling Led License Plate Flash Frames (repeating)
Digital Camera Swim Mask Digital camera of the deep (repeating somehow)

What could be more fun than a cockpit view while crashing a remote control car? This would be perfect if you could capture the video though…

Stacy Says: June 27, 2008 at 7:44 am

At first I was thinking the ‘Digital camera of the deep’ was cool until I read the details of the ‘VTS Camera Car’! OMG! Talk about Kewl factor.

Al Says: June 27, 2008 at 8:00 am

@Carl Jordan Thanks for the spelling correction (fixed now). I’m not seeing any of the repeating though, are you seeing the images ok, as they would have alt/titles of the repeated test that you’re seeing.

Gray G Says: June 27, 2008 at 8:07 am

The Digital camera swim mask from the deep is one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. I grew up around the water, in the ocean, ponds and rivers. I have always seen amazing things underwater, wishing I could capture them, now I can. Underwater cameras have always been a hassle to bring along, so this is great.

Carl Jordan Says: June 27, 2008 at 8:19 am

That is it Al, might be the alt text.

Thank you!

Very nice site BTW.

Mike P Says: June 27, 2008 at 8:20 am

The VTS Camera Car is the coolest gadget because its a new dimension to remote control cars. You can swim under water with a camera and it is nothing new, but most people have never seen the first person view of an object that low to the ground . It’s like driving a car in Giantville

Phil Says: June 27, 2008 at 9:04 am

Anything that can stir my coffee and keep it warm has to win my vote. Does it come in blonde?

Alex Stadler Says: June 27, 2008 at 9:50 am

because millions of coffee drinkers worldwide are getting coffee stirrer’s wrist and there is no federal support for research ;D At last there is a solution!

Jeff Says: June 27, 2008 at 9:53 am

Clearly it’s the Gevalia Stir Mug because it’s about freaking time my coffee stirs its DAMN self!

nick Says: June 27, 2008 at 10:09 am

Saw it on Something for the Weekend (UK TV program) and the Camera Car looked great fun! No need to follow it around corners, over hills or anything!

Mike Says: June 27, 2008 at 10:30 am

I vote for the Gevalia Stir Mug. It’s not a new idea at all, but they’ve improved the power and made it dishwasher safe. Plus, I can never find a damn spoon at work.

Joel Says: June 27, 2008 at 10:39 am

The car by far. Its like a spy car!

Dave Says: June 27, 2008 at 10:57 am

I vote for the cup.
That’s right, that’s how lazy I am!

Scott Says: June 27, 2008 at 1:42 pm

The car. Lookin up skirts will never be easier.

Todd Says: June 27, 2008 at 1:48 pm

The mask just makes sense. It already is pointing at what you want to take a picture of and it keeps your hands free to fend off sharks, mermen, and underwater pirates.

David Butler Says: June 27, 2008 at 2:28 pm

The car by far. This has to be the coolest gadget I’ve seen in a very long time. It’s almost like a little virtual video game. Red5 did not leave anything out with this little car…first-person view, audio, making me a kid again! Can I pre-order 50?!

Jason Says: June 27, 2008 at 3:32 pm

The RC Car… I would probably would have given my right leg for that toy when I was a kid! Very cool.

uchari Says: June 27, 2008 at 4:01 pm

Concept pool pc…. come on.. why is not winning… is a very important pieces of equipment for people who has a pool.. :P like me…
I think it will need an extension so i can stay longer than 2 hours with my laptop… at least it willbe the first thing to buy…

Cesar Says: June 27, 2008 at 4:34 pm

I think it’s a really good idea for the summer is coming, as the remote drink transport for the pool, you can relax and see a movie, play a game of even work.

Ignacio Says: June 27, 2008 at 4:57 pm

I chose the Auto Remote Truck Starter, because I live in a very cold place. This would avoid me having to go out and start the car just for it to get unfrozen and heated…would just love it!

Eric Says: June 30, 2008 at 6:38 am

I vote for the scrolling LED license plate. I can finally tell the other drivers what I want!
