Your PND

Gotta love driving these new cars with their GPS devices. With their mechanical voices saying “turn left”, “turn right”, or “next corner”. But it’s all so darn, oh I don’t know, impersonal. Can’t I have the voice that I want in there? Well, if I go over to the Your PND website, I can do that. However, there are a few obstacles. Number one, I don’t know the language. The …

Zoombak

Gotta love that Hanson. They prophesized the Zoombak Pet and Auto Locator ten years before its release when they sang “Zoombak, Zoombak, Zoombak”. All right, I guess it was mmmbop, sorry. Still, the Zoombak is worth singing about. The Zoombak is a GPS that is smaller than a deck of cards and weighs less than three ounces. Once it is activated, it releases a signal that someone can find 24/7.

Virtual Cable Shows You Where You’re Going

by Mark R

Virtual Cable

Now here is a GPS system that I could really get into. The Virtual Cable navigation system uses some type of projection technology to put a weird red ribbon directly on the windshield that tells you where to go. I don’t know much more detail than that, but it has to do with using lasers and mirrors. Unfortunately, it only exists as a concept only, but inventor Tom Zamojdo is …

You know if you have a directionally challenged person on your holiday gift list. They’ve called you on more than one occasion while they’re driving, they’re hopelessly lost and you have to not only figure out where they are but also where they need to be. I personally have had to do this with a family member and I actually had to go by landmarks, gas stations and national hotel …

Black & Decker Alligator Lopper Electric Chain Saw

Black & Decker Alligator Lopper Electric Chain Saw

If this Black & Decker existed 50 years ago, I bet it would be a hit for sure.

The Black & Decker Aligator Electronic Chain Saw has a 4.5 Amp motor, and a 4-inch cut limit. You can use it to cut small (or big) pieces of wood to use on your fireplace, unlike what happens while using a manual chain saw, you won’t get tired.

Take a big bite out of fallen trees, tree limbs and brush with the Alligator Lopper, a revolutionary new cutting tool that provides chainsaw-like cutting performance in an un-intimidating and easy to use tool. With its scissor-like action, the Alligator Lopper’s rugged metal jaws clamp onto logs and thick branches, as well as smaller tree limbs and vines and then saws through them with ease.
