Well, while there has been a fair number of remedies recommended over the centuries when it comes to decongesting your sinus problem, perhaps some 21st century magic will be able to to do the trick. I am referring to the $89.95 Suction Powered Sinus Decongestor that has been touted to be the world’s only nasal irrigation system which will make use of gentle powered suction to relieve sinus congestion without any need for medication.

As standard 20-30 second treatment will allow the cordless irrigator’s battery-powered motor to pull saline rinse from its upper tank via a single nostril, then out the other. Fro there, it will collect everything in the bottom tank. Throughout the entire process, the rinse will flush out sinus-clogging pollen, dust, and mucous, which instantly clears nasal passages for easier breathing. In other words, it will even be able to help reduce snoring. Being different from messy nasal treatments which require one to mix salt packets with water and lean over a sink, this irrigator will create a closed system and employs convenient, neat saline concentrate capsules. You can use it confidently anywhere. It will arrive with a trio of different sized nose pillows, and a couple of AA batteries will keep it running for several months of twice-daily use.

The Alchema lets you make your own craft cider Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:30:46 +0000 alchema

Making something that is more complex than a a sandwich is heralded as an achievement in this day and age. Not only do you have to look up a recipe online, go out and buy the particular ingredients, but you have to oversee all of the preparation and cooking process as well. That much time and foresight is quite admirable when most of us are living off of protein bars and shakes to keep us alive.

If you are really into making everything yourself, then you likely want to make your own booze for parties and friend gatherings as well. The Alchema looks like a space pod, but will take all the guesswork out of making your own craft cider. Everyone has at least heard of craft brews, but this will give you at least 500 extra hipster points among those closest to you. The only things you’ll have to worry about is picking a recipe off of the corresponding app, adding ingredients, yeast, and then waiting 1-2 weeks.

No seriously, that’s it. You can do this whole process on your own, and as someone who has made strawberry rhubarb wine in the past, trust me, the Alchema method would be far easier. This has a medical-grade UV-C LED light for sanitation purposes, an air pressure sensor, auto release valve, cloud calculation for alcohol level, and any changes will be known to you in the time it takes to receive an alert on your phone. This will cost you $429, and will start shipping out in September of next year.

Available for preorder on indiegogo

The Pistachiopener is for nut nuts Fri, 23 Sep 2016 19:40:01 +0000 pistachiopener

When you’re looking for a snack, you want to be somewhat health conscious. It’s not good to munch on Cheetos and Oreos every day, so it’s up to you to start looking into alternatives. While nuts are a wonderful snack, they’re expensive if you buy them shelled, so it’s better to get a big ole bag of them in their natural container. Of course, getting to your snack then becomes a battle in and of itself.

If your nut of choice is a pistachio, then you have likely met your match a few times over. Those little shells are harder to crack than a Sherlock Holmes case without an eye for detail. To prevent having to waste a perfectly good snack, you could get this PistachiOpener. This looks like a little torture device, but is a stainless steel trinket that will use splitting wedge action to free the nutritious innards from its shell.

These come in a set of two, and will cost you around $29. It’s not as though they’ll need washing often, but when they do you can stick them in the dishwasher without the fear that they’ll be destroyed. Of course, getting one of these will only make you go through a bag of nuts faster, and too much of a good thing can be just as bad as eating something with a higher calorie count.

Blu Life One X2 could be king of the cheap Android smartphones Fri, 23 Sep 2016 18:00:55 +0000 blu-life-one-x2No doubt high end smartphones tend to garner a whole lot of attention whenever they are launched, and not everyone is able to afford them, either. However, the entry-level and mir-range devices tend to be the bread and butter of many a smartphone manufacturer, which is why competition on the other end of the spectrum is not any easier, either. BLU has had its fair share of cheap and functional smartphones in the past, but this time they have revealed a successor to last year’s king of budget Android smartphones, the Blu Life One X. The answer? None other than the new Blu Life One X2.

The sequel to the Blu Life One X will come with its fair share of technology upgrades in order to keep up with the times, and best of all is, it will be able to maintain its $149.99 price point. There will be a Snapdragon 430 processor from Qualcomm that keeps the Blu Life One X2 chugging along in its everyday tasks, which is a 30% increase in performance as opposed to the previous generation.

Apart from that, it comes with integrated X6 LTE, cutting-edge camera technology with dual-Image Signal processors, and a next-generation GPU that ensures you will be able to enjoy fast downloads and uploads, stunning graphics and photos with battery life to spare.

The 5.2-inch display will show off images at 1080p Full HD resolution at 60 frames a second, ensuring your eyes will not be able to tire out after a while, and the Qualcomm Adreno 505 GPU delivers efficient, high-quality graphics performance and extended battery life.

Not only that, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 is up to four times as fast as conventional charging and is 38% more efficient than Quick Charge 2.0. This translates to you having to spend less time charging and more time doing. The Blu Life One X2 will arrive with 64GB of internal memory and 4GB of RAM if you decide to top up another $50, making it the first of its kind to offer 4GB of RAM under the $200 price point.

Other features include aircraft grade aluminum, a 16MP shooter at the back, a wide-angle 8MP camera in front with LED flash, an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor on the outside for added security, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right out of the box.

SOL Republic Relays Sport wireless headphones announced Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:00:38 +0000 relays-sport-wirelessSOL Republic is definitely a name that most of us are able to relate to when it comes to a pair of headphones, and they have even tied in with big names such as Tiger Woods in the past. Well, this time around, those of you who are extremely active out there might be interested in picking up the SOL Republic Relays Sport wireless headphones which will certainly be a boon to those who tend to have a less than sedentary lifestyle.

When it comes to wireless sports headphones, consumers tend to have several common pet peeves — among them include a relatively short battery life (which ticks off those marathon runners), a complicated secure fit system, ear hooks that tend to induce pain over the course of time, and lackluster sound quality. SOL Republic is committed to changing the world one listener at a time, hence the Relays Sport wireless headphones.

The Relays Sport wireless headphones has been specially designed to be comfortable to wear for hours on end, all without having to sacrifice its secure fit. There is also enough battery life to have it last up to eight hours of play time, sporting full range high fidelity sound, quick charge technology, microphone, music controls, sweat and water resistance, and a special outdoor sound mode.

The most important feature of Relays Sport Wireless lies in its award-winning FreeFlex secure fit, which is an ultralight ear bud design which can adapt to any ear size without having to have complicated parts or hooks which wrap around your sensitive ear. This ear bud remains inside, and will not fall out. It does make us wonder whether the Apple AirPods are up to the task, too.

All of the electronic components are carefully placed in ergonomic, water resistant pods which fit naturally on the neck. This allows it to deliver signature deep bass and crisp sound regardless of which activity you are involved in, and an outdoor sound mode increases the right amount of bass so everything sounds just right again. Available in black, mint and yellow colors, the Relays Sport wireless headphones will cost $79.

Wall Mounted Fireplace keeps the room toasty with grace Fri, 23 Sep 2016 16:00:51 +0000 wall-mounted-fireplaceWhen the chill of winter arrives, we are all wont to look for cover and heat. Some of us would like to walk around in a pair of comfortable and warm slippers, while the others might want to crank up the heater a wee bit. If a fireplace is your cup of tea, but you do not want to go through the trouble of stoking the fire and keeping watch over it, then an electronic fireplace will do the trick just nice. Since you are heading in that particular direction, why not go the whole nine yards with the $399.95 Wall Mounted Fireplace?

As its name suggests, this is a liquid-fuel fireplace that can be mounted to a wall to provide the color, charm, and comfort of a wood-burning fire. It does so sans the smoke, smells, or sparks. It will work by using recycled liquid ethanol fuel which gives off only water vapor and carbon dioxide, and this clean-burning fireplace yields a bright yellow, orange, and red 7″-high flame that flickers without fumes, all the while imparting a warm ambiance to a living room, den, or family room. It can generate up to 21,000 BTUs per hour (4,000-8,000 BTUs per hour, depending upon damper setting), heating a 325′ sq. area, and housed within a brushed stainless steel frame that extends only 6″ from a wall, allowing the fireplace’s burner to reside behind a pane of tempered glass that allows its heat to rise through vents in the top without marring a wall’s finish.

Zubits make sure you never have to tie your shoes again Thu, 22 Sep 2016 20:01:21 +0000 zubits

Every single second counts when you’re running late. Since we’re taking on more responsibilities than ever, it feels like that’s every minute of every day. It makes sense that we want to streamline our lives, because we can’t waste a single minute on things we shouldn’t have to. That being said, it’s about time we talk about tying your shoes.

Let’s be real here, not many of us actually tie and untie our shoes. Most of the time we tie them just loose enough that we can slip our feet in and out with very little effort. If we had the Zubits, that would be a completely different story. These are two magnetic strips that you tie your shoelaces into, and whenever you need to run out the door you only need to slip your feet in and pull the two sides close enough that the magnetism will take effect.

If you think these won’t be able to stay together when you go for a run, think again, as Zubits have been tested time and time again with parkour lovers, kids, and runners alike. These come in 3 different sizes for those with varying foot sizes. There are also a variety of colors to choose from so that you’re not going to ruin the color coordination of your outfit. These will cost you $19.99-21.99 depending on what size you need.

Specially meant for use primarily with WinTel computers, the combo-set keyboards will arrive in two main layouts. The first of these will make use of BeeRaider’s very own optimized alpha-character layout, which BeeRaider claims it will be able to do its bit to greatly improve a user’s typing speed. In other words, one’s productivity should see an increase from here. As for the second keyboard, that model will come with an ergonomic and compact version of the standard QWERTY layout. It should make typing for long hours on end less of a hassle. BeeRaider’s first production run of 1,000 combo-set units will boast of distinctively marked keyboards which will be unique to these first 1,000 units, so if you like to collect special stuff, it might be good to place your order early.
