Wait a minute, make that two — the cockroach can also be extinct for all I care. Unfortunately, both pests are still around to this day and flourishing, with the mosquito being a vector for deadly viruses like the Zika virus as well as spreading malaria and dengue fever. Well, if you love to spend the cool evenings on the outside without being a buffet spread for mosquitoes, then the $199.95 One-Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap makes plenty of sense.

From its name alone, you know more or less the area in which it is able to cover, as opposed to the Dusk-Activated Half Acre Mosquito Trap. This particular trap will attract and kill mosquitoes in yards up to one acre without the use of harmful chemicals. How does it do so? Well, it will mimic the natural conditions of human habitation by emitting heat and odorless carbon dioxide, which is similar to the gas humans expel during respiration, as well as light to lure mosquitoes. Carbon dioxide will be generated when ultraviolet rays from two fluorescent bulbs react with a titanium dioxide coating inside the trap, and as the mosquitoes are drawn inside the device, there is an an integrated fan that will trap the insects and send them to a removable net — resulting in their eventual death due to dehydration.

Scratchproof Nonstick Pan Set makes cooking easy Sat, 23 Jul 2016 12:00:05 +0000 scratchproof-nonstick-pan-setDo you love to pitter potter around the kitchen? Some of us might feel that the hassle of actually going out to purchase the necessary ingredients, in addition to preparing them and cooking, not to mention the cleaning up later, is time that is far better used to do something else while you pay through your nose to eat outside. Well, you need not have to indulge in gourmet meals, but simple pan-fried items would also be able to keep any rumbling tummy happy. If you love to fry eggs or even sausages, then the $119.95 Scratchproof Nonstick Pan Set sounds like the ideal utensil to have around any kitchen.

It might sound expensive at first, but the Scratchproof Nonstick Pan Set is actually a set of three pans that sport a non-stick, scratchproof ceramic-titanium coating. This particular coating makes it a whole lot easier to cook, in addition to cleaning up afterwards. Fried eggs will slide off the ungreased pan as if cooked on air, while the impervious non-stick surface suffered no damage when scrubbed with an abrasive pad and scratched with a metal fork. In addition, the pans will also enable chefs to cook confidently without oil or butter. You know what this means — reduced calories and fat with each meal.

When you meet someone new for the first time, the place you’re both going to look at the most is the face. That being said, it’s no wonder that we worry about keeping our teeth white, hair in check, and a complexion free of blemishes or breakouts. When we have a glowing, clear face, we not only feel more confident in dealing with others, but it helps us to feel better about ourselves.

It’s hard to realize how much having breakouts can affect you until you have them. For those that are still on the hunt to find what works for them, the Clairasonic Mia 2 might be able to help you out. This is a sonic skin cleaning system that will help to remove dirt and dead skin far better than your hands alone. There are two speeds so you can adjust to your skin type, as well as a pulsing T-timer for a 60 second cleanse.

This is meant to be used as the first step of your facial cleansing regimen so your face will be more receptive to serums and moisturizers. For those that are interested in trying out a new option, be prepared to pay out $118 and having to buy new brush heads every so often. You will need to stay on top of taking this apart and cleaning the brushes on a regular basis, unless you want it to be the cause of future breakouts.

Sleep is essential to inspire and create our energy, and it also functions as a fuel for our intellect and brainpower. REM-Fit has more or less nailed the secret to a good night’s rest, and the result of that is the ZEEQ.

The ZEEQ is a smart pillow that will be able to track sleep activity, in addition to helping you and/or your sleep partner to stop snoring. Not only that, the ZEEQ is also able to stream music sans wires, and determine the ideal time to wake you in your sleep cycle and promotes overall health.

ZEEQ will also differentiate itself from the other types of sleep technology, as it responds to the data it collects, boasting of features such as integrated Bluetooth speakers so that you can enjoy your favorite tunes or via the ZEEQ app to listen to custom sounds.

Not only that, the ZEEQ app is able to let you check on your sleep data, view your snore score, set alarms, play music, enter diet and habits, among others. It has a battery life that lasts for up to an entire week, and will juice up using a micro USB connection. Would you be willing to invest a little in this particular pillow, or settle for something else like the Two Position Sleeper’s Pillow?

This Pokeball Power Bank keeps Pokemon GO players on the move Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:30:01 +0000 pokeball Powerbank

If you have had your eyes shut for the past several weeks, because Pokemon GO players will look under rocks and in remote locations, Nintendo has changed how society functions. Nerds who grew up loving Pokemon and video games are getting the best of both worlds as the game app has not only given them something to play, but encourages getting out and meeting other Pokemon trainers.

The only downside to exploring the world in the interest of catching them all is that the game drains your phone battery at a rate of a percent a minute. For those who just can’t stop playing and raiding gyms, a normal backup battery that charges your phone once over isn’t going to be enough. This Handmade Pokeball Power Bank is sure to keep you in the game as the battery pack is 5300mAh and 2.1 amps, which means your phone will be charged 2-3 times over.

They conveniently put a clasp on this so you can hang it from your bag for easy access. This will also make it easy for other trainers to suss out that you’re a friendly. It has built-in LED indicators, blue for charging, and red for battery charging which will change to blue when it’s juiced up. It has a USB port and microUSB port for charging. This $40 powerbank is hand-painted, carved with a dremmel, but due to being a power bank and not an actual Pokeball, you shouldn’t throw or toss these around as they can break.
