T-Sketch your own T-Shirt

T-Sketch your own T-Shirt

Draw your design or write a message on your chest using the T-sketch. Make yourself a ‘Hi my name is…’ tag, or write something really random that people are guaranteed to ask you about or simply doodle. Then through the use of cunningly concealed AAA batteries (remove before washing!) you not only get to project your innermost thoughts but you get to make them flash too. Wherever the specially designed pen hits the wipe clean board, lights below the surface are activated. You can then set different vibrancies for the design- anything from a dull glow to a flashing strobe. Great attention grabber on drunken nights out!

With built-in heat and light sensors, it can also track movement and note temperature changes and, if you turn off a light, it will tell you goodnight.

I like the variable lamp! It would be neat to have all of those lighting options from one lamp.

For anyone with heel pain,the spring-loaded shoes will be a lifesaver and help us get back to a healthier way of life.

Caron Braunstein Says: September 25, 2009 at 10:04 am

Love the child’s GPS watch. Even if you don’t have kids, you can attach it to your luggage, briefcase or throw it in your purse (in case of theft).

Jay Says: September 25, 2009 at 10:57 am

The Spring Loaded Walking Shoes might be nice for people with knee pain. Although the GPS Watch is a very good idea as well.

i like the solar charger. the ipod touch has such a crappy battery life that you need a way to charge it when you can’t plug it in somewhere. good times.

StonzTwo Says: September 28, 2009 at 6:06 am

Despite its price tag, I still like the HDTV transmitter. The mess of wires behind my TV could use a serious clean-up and this sure would help.

Jason Says: September 28, 2009 at 11:56 am
