INFORAD GPS Speed Camera Detector

Speed CamerasHave you ever got caught speeding? Most have at some point. I know myself that when I’m driving in a 30mph zone, sometimes I don’t notice if I’m doing 35mph. Before you know it those speed cameras have stored all your details and you’re on your way to a nasty speeding fine.

That’s why I’m glad someone out there invented the ‘INFORAD GPS Speed Camera Detector’ at a very affordable price. The initial cost is only £79.99 (nothing compared to a few tickets) and you get a free update for the first year. To update your device go to Updates cost £24.99 per year or £49.99 for a lifetime subscription!

The Coolest Boarding Board Ever!

There are not many things that make me drool (excluding pizza) but the Scarpar board did just that. The Scarpar is the first multi terrain motorised board. Unlike snow and wake boards you can use it anywhere so will be ideal when you don’t have the time or weather to enjoy your regular boarding.

Really Cool Portable GPS Tracker

This must be one of (if not the) coolest spy gadgets I’ve ever reported on. It’s sort of a cross between a USB memory stick and a GPS receiver and what it does is store where ever you take it on the flash memory.

The Portable GPS Tracker is pretty small so you could either always carry it on you or use it in 007 spy mode by planting it on a person or vehicle you want to monitor. You may be wondering how you retrieve the stored info and secret routes, well that’s where it gets really cool.
