Tend reveals new Lynx Indoor Camera Fri, 19 May 2017 12:00:13 +0000 lynx-indoorA man’s home is his castle, and that would mean having to secure the safety and security of the perimeters. While having a dog does have its fair share of advantages, what about a digital camera in place? Security cameras have long become a staple in many of the larger sized houses that you see around the country, so why not make sure that you end up with nothing but the best? Tend has come up with the Lynx, where it will bring together an extremely simple setup process with HD (High Definition) live video monitoring as well as advanced facial recognition and motion triggered recording so that nothing escapes the Lynx’s “eyes”.

Specially designed in order to secure the people, places and things that matter most using incredibly simple with powerful and sophisticated technology, the new Tend Secure Lynx Indoor camera will deliver the perfect combination of intelligent, yet effortless, video security. Boasting of crystal clear 1080p HD video and crisp two-way audio, the Tend Secure Lynx Indoor delivers a smart video monitoring solution which will be able to work with just about any existing Wi-Fi network in a jiffy. It takes just minutes to setup, where you can then choose to place or mount it anywhere without the need for complicated wiring. This provides you with round-the-clock monitoring, including infrared capability. Wish to have a greater peace of mind? Install multiple Lynx Indoor cameras on the same network, and you can then keep track of different rooms, entryways or other locations.

The integrated and advanced facial recognition technology will be able to automatically recognize familiar faces so that security is maximized while doing away with false alarms. It remains to be seen just how accurate the facial recognition technology is, but it sure looks as though things are getting smarter around the home all the time. It will need to be trained though, but the Tend Secure app on iOS and Android can issue a mobile check-in alert as well.

The asking price of $59.99 apiece is certainly more than welcome, and it should make home security more affordable to everyone.

The SKINZIT Electric Fish Skinner is a helpful torture device Thu, 18 May 2017 18:30:39 +0000 Fish Skinner

It’s the perfect time of year to go fishing. Actually, it’s the perfect time of year all year long to go fishing, it just depends on where you live and how determined you are. When you catch your delightful flopping friends, you get to decide if luck was with them, or if they’re going to be flayed for dinner. Of course, if you know what you’re doing it’s a quick couple flicks of the wrist, but those who aren’t as precise are likely looking for a way to speed things up.

If you enjoy fishing and fall into the latter category, then this SKINZIT Electric Fish Skinner is about to be your new best friend. This will let you remove rib bones and skin a fish fillet with a press of a button. There is still a little bit of technique involved with the angle in which you approach the piece of fish and when to keep it on the table or not, but it will still be faster and cleaner than fiddling with a sharp knife on your own.

The idea behind this product is to have as little waste as possible, as well as making it quick and easy to take care of otherwise messy work. It is corded, and has a 9’8” cable so you can plug in to work in the kitchen or outside the house to avoid a lingering seafood smell. This doesn’t come cheap as it is all about convenience, so be prepared to part with around $150 if you’re interested.

The Kucho Air-Conditioned Cooling Pack – keep your cool in school Wed, 17 May 2017 18:30:14 +0000 Air Conditioned Backpack

When you have to walk a mile or two to get to class, a backpack with a few books in it becomes a heavy burden that digs into your shoulders after the first few minutes of your journey. When the summer sun is in full effect, you also get to experience the joys of a tremendous amount of back sweat, making your bag a soggy mess the rest of the day. You can only cut down so many layers  of clothing to cool off before you might be charged with indecent exposure.

While you don’t want to strap ice packs to your bag or limbs  since you’d still have the issues of being wet and heavily encumbered, this Kucho Air-Conditioned Backpack Cooling Pack can help. This goes in between your bag and back, blowing cool air on you in multiple directions so you can stay at a more comfortable temperature. It won’t completely cool you off during a grueling walk in the sun, but it will make the experience mildly more tolerable.

This runs off of 4 AA batteries, and has low and high settings for the fan. If you keep it on high, the batteries should last you for 8.5 hours, while being kept on low they will hold out for 44 hours. It’s ideal for outdoorsy types who like being out in the sun, but if they don’t have problems overheating, they may not be willing to cough up $150 for something that isn’t a cure-all.

Open Gadgets Pixel LED Art Frame – Thinking in pixels Tue, 16 May 2017 18:30:34 +0000 Pixel Art LED Frame

We love to hang art on our walls, but every now and again we feel the need to move things around. We don’t want to redo the entire house, but a change of scenery is never a bad idea. It would be much easier if what was on your walls could change itself, or be changed whenever you’re tired of the same ole images cropping up.

That might have sounded foreign 15 years ago, but we’ve all seen digital photo frames. If you’re not much of a picture person, then maybe this Pixel LED Art Frame would be more your speed. It hearkens back to pixelated games from the 80s, and will let you use other artists renditions (over 180 options), or create your own. It has 1,024 LEDs with each light being the equivalent of one pixel, giving you a 32 x 32 resolution. It is a tedium to create images or animations by yourself, but if that’s a hobby of yours, you only need to save your masterpiece in animated GIF format to admire your handiwork.

There are lots of customization options, with free apps for Android and Linux/raspberry pi. You can either mount this on your wall or use the included desktop stand to keep it nearby. This is going to cost you around $218, but it would be a fun way to pass the time and show off your creations to anyone who happens by your desk or home.
