The Babyglow has been invented by a UK Father of one called Chris Ebejer. He spent up to £700,000 and six years developing the innovative and health saving product Babyglow. The Babyglow is a unique invention which is aimed at telling you when your baby has a high temperature. The Babyglow will come in three colours and when your Babies temperature exceeds the normal temperature of 37C it will turn white. As the Baby cannot relay that they have a high temperature or feel unwell this fantastic product is made to indicate exactly that for you.

6-in-1 Solar Robot Kit

One of our house rules is that anything with “robot” in the title always deserves a look and this is especially true when it claims to, “not require any batteries“. Then to discover that it offers 6 half decent gadgets sparked our excitement. To shorten the post we decided to rank our personal favourites, Olympic style (Podium ranking except without the drugs)

Tokyoflash NI Wristwatch is Confusing but oh so Clever

Analogue a little bit too steampunk for you? Digital too much like everyone else? Confuse and baffle everyone with the Tokyoflash NI. Instead of numbers (because that’d be easy right?) this watch uses coloured LEDs to tell the time. It’s basically a puzzle watch- count up the number of dots per row and you’ll work out the time. The person who asked will probably have found a clock by then, but at least you’ll get to look cool and feel a little bit smug…

The baby glow could come in real handy.

Robot Kit!!! Because I want one and it’s my birthday!

Selene M. Says: June 19, 2009 at 8:35 am

I voted for the Disney Netbook

Brett Says: June 19, 2009 at 8:37 am

I think the babyglow will be very successful,and I don’t even have a baby.

Finally! The bathtub gets wired!

cara Says: June 19, 2009 at 9:38 am

next week, robot babies!

StonzTwo Says: June 19, 2009 at 9:51 am

If I had a child, I might go with the baby glow. But, since I don’t (thankfully), it’s going to have to be the watch. Very cool new idea to be unique!

Vadim Says: June 19, 2009 at 10:10 am

Babyglow isn’t as useful as it sounds. I’ll have to go with the shock proof harddrive.

Drew Says: June 19, 2009 at 2:15 pm

Media streamer. That baby is CREEEEPYYYY…

Jason Says: June 19, 2009 at 3:23 pm

As usual, any gadget that makes things easier gets my vote. As a parent, I can definitely say that Babyglow would make my life easier. Very cool product.

will Says: June 19, 2009 at 4:41 pm

the waterproof pc. you could just leave it in a tub of ice water and overclock the hell out of it. Also, if you were in a submarine, and there was a leak, and they fixed the leak but afterwards you spilled some tea on the computer, it would be okay.

Helard Says: June 19, 2009 at 6:44 pm

Babyglow!! A clever idea to monitor baby’s temperature

J.Carey Says: June 19, 2009 at 6:52 pm

Waterproof Fanless PC – I want one.

jack Says: June 20, 2009 at 10:31 am

This thing can obviously save countless babies from early death.
