The Oscar Mayer brand intends to introduce something new to the world for the first time ever with a unique iOS device that will enable those who wake up early in the morning to the wonderful smell of bacon, all without having to even lift a frying pan, not to mention avoiding having to clean up the kitchen afterwards from all the oil slicks that have formed along the walls and stove.

There might not be any free lunch in the world, but surely the free smell of bacon first thing in the morning is worth a shot! In order to use the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon, all you need to do is to download the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon app, hook up the detachable device into the headphone jack of an iPhone, and then enjoy the scent of sizzling bacon. You will be unable to find this unique device in stores with limited quantities in circulation, so the proverb “the early bird gets the worm” applies here.
If Lady Luck has deserted you, and you did not receive this special device, there is still the option to download the Wake Up & Smell the Bacon application for free in the App Store, so that you can always wake up to the sound of sizzling bacon in addition to amusing bacon sayings or “baconisms”, as it is better known. Want the smell? Go ahead and cook some bacon strips for yourself.
The rest is here:
Wake Up & Smell the Bacon is a unique way to wake up
When it comes to gaming peripherals for the computer, I am quite sure that there is one particular name that should not be overlooked at all, and that would be Razer. The company has just announced the launch of the first mechanical switch in the world that has been specially designed by Razer, which will target the gaming community, calling it the Razer Mechanical Switch.Traditional mechanical switches were used for typing purposes, but the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have been designed and engineered from the ground up to cater for gamers. This would mean going back to the drawing board in order to re-engineer the traditional mechanical switch.
Apparently, it has taken a whole lot of research by Razer’s multi-award winning engineers to identify the optimal actuation distance for a gaming switch to a fraction of a millimeter, where they then reduced that partiular distance between the actuation and reset point by almost 50% in order to facilitate faster, more precise gaming commands when compared to standard mechanical switches. Apart from that, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have also been using with an ultra-precise manufacturing technique that will work in tandem with gold plated contact points, where it ought to be good for up to 60 million key strokes, now how about that?
These switches will no doubt have theoretical value behind their design, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating, so what better way to put it to the test than to have the world’s most demanding eSports athletes give the new Razer Mechanical Switch a spin, especially in some of the most intense professional gaming tournaments? Implemented in the Razer BlackWidow keyboard, it is said to have a “lighter and smoother feel”, according to Jens “Snute” Aasgaard, Team Liquid StarCraft player. Jens continued, “It’s comfortable and solid – perfect for long practice sessions and tournaments.”
Now don’t go blaming the keyboard anymore if you lose your next competitive StarCraft game, it is just a lack of tactical nous on your part, and not the keyboard.

We all have secrets that we need to keep safe. However, if your information is digital, you’ll occasionally want to move it around so that it won’t be found so easily. This can be anything from copies of your drivers license or passport to love letters you never intend to send. Either way, you want to know exactly where they are, so you never have to worry about them falling into the wrong hands.
The Kisai Upload Wood LCD Watch will store whatever information you need to carry around, and hides it in plain sight. This is a timepiece that has memory storage which you can dip into through the provided USB cable. It comes with a 2GB MicroSD card, but you can always change it out for something larger (there are no capacity limitations). You will need to take out a few screws to do this, but it shouldn’t be too challenging.
Not only will this store information, but it looks wonderfully classy as well. This is a combination of wood and metal, and you’ll be able to choose between a dark sandalwood with silver and a blue LCD, or a maple with gold compliment with a natural LCD display. The numbers on this wristwatch are stretched in the same way road signs are, which means they are best read at a lower angle. If not, you’ll have a hard time discerning the hours, minutes, seconds, and hundredths of a second. This will cost you around $109, or more should you choose to get a larger MicroSD card.
Available for purchase on TokyoFlash

It’s funny how many little things seem to take up so much time. We used to live life without the constant hum of gadgets and technology around us, but now we can’t picture life without it. One of the greatest tasks we now face is trying to cut down the time we have to spend doing this and that tiny chore.
If you like moving as close to the speed of light as possible, then you’re likely looking for ways to cut down on precious seconds in every action of your day-to-day life. The Ring is an input device that will let you send texts, control appliances at home, or pay your bills with a flick of your finger. It uses gesture control function which will allow you to doodle in the air, and get the result of turning on or off things like the TV or a lamp.
If you want to send a text, there’s a specific font you can air-draw, and it will be put into word form on your phone. Should you be the type who likes to know the second you’ve received a mention on Twitter, a text, or email, then you’ll be happy to know that this has LED and vibration alerts to make you aware when something is afoot. This will cost you anywhere from $165-185, and comes with a battery stand for recharging purposes. The Ring can be charged 1000 times, and each charge will give you about 1000 gestures. It’s not waterproof, so try to remember to take it off when washing your hands, or be mindful should you be out in the rain.
Available for crowdfunding on Kickstarter

Real cycling, (not the ride around the lake I do on an occasional Saturday) takes a tremendous amount of time and commitment. I believe it entails pushing the limits, and forging ahead. Training often, watching what you eat, and always working towards the next level. Unfortunately, it also entails having to look out behind you, in order to keep yourself safe.
Well, now you can keep your concentration on the road ahead, while your new Hindsight 35 keeps you apprised of whats going on behind you, and you’ll never look back. Designed to increase your peripheral, and your rear-view vision, Hindsight 35 can he help prevent accidents that happen because you can’t see behind you, or, because you’re turning around to look.
A specialized digital camera is attached to an area such as the seat post, and sends along video data via the micro-HDMI cable to the handlebar-mounted screen, featuring ANT+ wireless technology that can display data from compatible devices, and the vibrant LCD display can be read in direct sunlight. (just don’t wear polarized glasses)
So if having real-time views of whats going on behind your back while you hit the open road will help you in your cycling endeavors, and the ability to record video in a continuous 5-minute loop, gives you extra security in the case of an accident, and a cyclometer that includes speed, max speed, average speed, trip distance, odometer, and a stopwatch gets your wheels turning, then the 379 dollar Hindsight 35 might be for you. Available soon, at cerevellum.com

Hindsight 35 – Watching out Behind You
Why are we so interested in looking at our faces? Does it make it think about what we used to look like, and compare it to the current version of ourselves? It could be personal growth, but oftentimes it’s a good way to validate yourself by posting tons of face photos online for social media sites to your followers to give you a confidence boost. Nothing wrong with that, but some people do get to be a bit excessive about it.
If you take the selfie game pretty seriously, then you’re likely in the market for a shutter remote control so you don’t have blurry photos. The HISY is one such item that will work with your iDevice without the use of an app. All it needs to do to connect is be paired via Bluetooth. This can go for almost two years (based on doing 100 shots a day!) without needing a battery replacement, so you won’t need to worry about having to charge one more device.
This would be perfect for creative selfies or group shots as it has a range of 30-90 feet. It will cost you around $25, which isn’t too bad for such an item. There is even a headphone jack attachment so you can keep it handy at all times rather than stuffing it in your bag and missing a perfect photo opportunity. If you also like to record videos, this will be able to start and stop the recording process.
HISY wants you to take as many selfies as you can
Using a stylus for most of us is usually just a means to navigate our screen without our fingers getting in the way. However, many people use them as a creative medium. This can be used for designing outfits, building plans, or just jotting down some ideas in your own handwriting. It gives you the feel of using an old-fashioned writing implement (do pens and pencils count as archaic now?), and more.
This isn’t your average stylus, as it also has an eraser tip. It will only recognize the back end of the Pencil as an eraser, so you only need to flip it over to etch away your mistakes, like you would with a graphite pencil for paper. One of the big annoyances with working on a touchscreen surface is that your hand will tend to rest on the screen, making unwanted marks. When you’re using this stylus, it will recognize and reject your palm as a means of interaction with the screen.
If you’re working in colors or full drawings rather than sketching, you can use the aPencil for precise lines, and your finger for smudging. You will need to charge this Bluetooth device, and with ‘normal’ use (whatever that means), you shouldn’t need to charge it for a month. Thankfully, it only takes about 90 minutes to be juiced up again. It does need to be used on an iPad with a Retina Display or iPad Mini for full support of features, so apologies to the rest of the tablet world. This will cost you anywhere from $50-60 depending on whether you would like a wooden body or black aluminum.

The secret to getting a good night’s rest would be having a comfortable bed, as well as being in the right temperature, with a nice pillow and bolster for others. Of course, it also helps if everything around you was deathly quiet, and for some of us, we would need to have a decent soothing soundtrack playing in the background. With the $69.95 Sleep Sound Generating Pillow, you can be ushered into dreamland faster than you can count up to 100 sheep.
The Sleep Sound Generating Pillow happens to be a cordless plush pillow which will play back white noise as well as nine relaxing nature sounds so that you will be able to sleep faster than you have ever done before. Instead of having to deal with the nasty tangles of a headphone cord, there will be well hidden speakers in the pillow which will be able to deliver clear audio without bulky components. Apart from that, it also helps keep the sound close to your ear, resulting in a lower level of play volume compared to speakers so that others in the same room as you, too, will be able to sleep.
