The STIGA SensorScore Table Tennis System sets the record straight

by Caitlyn

For those that get competitive, it is imperative that everyone knows what the current score is. It pushes you to focus more if you’re behind, and gives you adrenaline when you’re doing well. The same is true across the board for any type of point-based game whether it’s football or table tennis. If you’ve ever played the latter, then you know how easy it is to lose track of the score.

Newgy Robo Pong 2050 Table Tennis Robot – Practice makes perfect

by Caitlyn

Robo pong

Different things appeal to different people. You might like football while your friend loves ultimate Frisbee and keeps trying to get you to play every Thursday even though you have no interest whatsoever. If that exceedingly specific example doesn’t cover your situation, but you are a table tennis enthusiast, then you likely wish you could practice more, but hate relying on having a human practice partner who might be flaky or not available when you want to play at odd hours.

The Aerb Wireless Keyboard Mouse Remote is the puppet master of a smart home

Aerb Wireless Keyboard Remote

When you want to turn your home into a smart home, you know it’s not something that you can buy, open a box, and immediately have. You have to purchase separate elements of a smart home, and configure them to all work together. Only after you have all the parts, pieces, and bugs worked out does it start to feel like a futuristic home that you barely have to move a finger to control.

AirJamz – the thrill of playing music without actually playing

You can pick up a new skill at any stage in your life with enough determination. Whether that’s painting, ice skating, or playing guitar, there’s no such thing as too old or too young to start learning. Of course, if you just want the fun of jamming out with friends without actually knowing how to play an instrument, that’s where air guitar, piano, and lip syncing come into play.

The Sphero Force Band controls BB-8 with the wave of your hand

When you watched Star Wars for the first time, how badly did you wish you could use the Force? While it is more complicated than simple telekinesis, that part is the one we all hone in on. For kids, that is amplified by a thousand, and they will pretend they have it and wave their arms around like mad regardless of whether or not they actually affect anything in the tangible world.

The Ice Meister Slicer All-Season Sled works on snow or dead grass

by Caitlyn

As someone who grew up in a place with real seasons, it’s pretty heart-breaking to move to a place that is dry and desert-like. You would never think you’d miss a rainstorm, but when it only rains in California about once every 3 months, it’s a noticeable thing to miss. That being said, the concept of winter here is a pretty laughable ordeal as you might only need a light sweater at the worst of it.

Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game: all the action, minus the sweat

by Edwin

advanced-nfl-electric-gameFootball — each season will bring with it new stories of triumph as well as defeat, joy and tragedy. Above all, it brings everyone together (as long as you support the same team, that is) regardless of one’s background, with the will of the fans sometimes helping the athletes to go beyond what they normally are able to in order to push onward to victory. Well, football has gotten smarter over the years for the casual player with the likes of the Wilson X Connected Football, but here we are with something that will let you pit your entire team against another — without dropping a bead of sweat. I am referring to the $149.95 Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game.

The Advanced Classic NFL Electric Football Game hails from Tudor Games, the very same company that invented the original all the way back in 1949. It will deliver a 36″ x 18″ field that is preferred by tournament players, and this updated model provides each side with the option of equipping its 11 included players with different bases. There will be speed “cleats” that enable backs or receivers to race down field, and strength cleats allow linemen to open holes. Where defense is concerned, the different bases grant pass-rushing speed to linemen and run-stopping power to linebackers. Each set comprises of 22 generic players, a couple of quarterbacks that run, pass, or kick, and two sets of uniform numbers to identify your favorite players, 70 NFL team end zone stickers, and all the relevant accessories (six felt footballs, two yard stick markers, and a ball marker) to get started right out of the box.

Proto Man Buster Replica has everything but cannot shoot

by Edwin

proto-man-blasterIf you think that Mega Man’s Mega Buster is the weapon of choice when it comes to getting rid of enemy robots and the ilk, think again. Mega Man is not the only name in town to own a buster, and here we are with the $79.99 Proto Man Buster Replica. Yes, I know, the name of it gives the game away right from the get go, but that is no reason to get upset. It is not as though other Mega Man Buster options in the market will actually create a hole in the wall when fired.

What about the Proto Man Buster Replica? Do not be surprised, but it is actually a full-sized replica of Proto Man’s plasma arm cannon, sporting two trigger-activated, light and sound effects: with one single shot while the other being a charged shot. Certainly you can put your imagination to good use with this, and to make things all the more realistic, the Proto Man Buster Replica comes with power up and down light/sound effects. Before someone brushes you off for purchasing a fake product, do be proud that this is an officially-licensed Capcom product and can fit either left or right hands. Powered by a trio of AA batteries, if you are going to spend plenty of time fooling around with this during Halloween, it would be in your best interest to rely on rechargeable batteries.
