Do you ever wish your kids were combat ready so they can take down an evil government at the drop of a hat? Hopefully that is never the case, but kids do love to shoot the crap out of each other with Nerf guns, and I don’t blame them because it’s fun! While we’ve come a long way in the development of foam weaponry, do you ever get worried that we might be going too far?
Thankfully the answer to that is a resounding no, which is why the Nerf Combat Creatures TerraDrone exists. This is a remote controlled drone that looks like a baby destroyer droid, but is thankfully far less deadly. It can fire up to 12 darts from 45 feet away at a speed that is likely not strong enough to cause any real damage. The head can rotate a full 360 degrees, and it has an adjustable blast angle.
This is going to make it feel like the robot overlords really are on their way, as these can handle just about any type of terrain without issue. You’ll need 6 AA batteries to get the drone and remote control to work and it is recommended for kids 8 and up, though no one is going to judge if you get it for yourself. This will cost you $161.95, so your kids will hopefully keep the phase of wanting to shoot everything for a while to get a good deal of use out of this. You can move them up to more dangerous weaponry when they’re older.

It has been a more or less a couple of years since the Corsair M65 was released, and back then, such a gaming mouse certainly made waves as it did not break the bank and yet came with its fair share of gaming capability. Having said that, isn’t it time for an upgrade for the Corsair M65? The time has arrived, where the Corsair M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse has been announced. To sweeten the deal even further, this is one gaming mouse from Corsair that is touted to boast of the highest DPI ever from the company.
Just how high can the resolution go? We are looking at a 12,000 dpi optical sensor to get the job done, which should be more than enough to ensure that every single twitch of your hand will result in a corresponding movement on the screen itself. The advanced 12,000 dpi optical sensor will not stand alone, as it is accompanied by a revolutionary surface calibration tuning utility and high-precision switches, ensuring that the M65 PRO RGB will build on the original Corsair M65’s legacy when it comes to durability and comfort, at the same time include the latest in-mouse sensor and customization technology.
In addition, the latest Corsair M65 PRO RGB gaming mouse happens to be a competition-grade FPS gaming mouse, where its aircraft-grade aluminum chassis will be able to deliver low weight and high durability, sporting a dedicated sniper button, as it takes advantage of on-the-fly dpi switching so that you can instantly match mouse speed to gameplay demands where extreme accuracy is concerned. There is also an advanced weight tuning system that enables the gamers to adjust the mouse’s center of gravity to match their play style; where lighter is required for fast-deadly precision and heavier for decisive movements. The asking price ain’t that shabby either, as it goes for a highly affordable $59.99 a pop.

When you’re playing console games and the only interaction between you and the game is with the controller, you need to have one you don’t mind holding for 6 hours at a time. Most of the ones that come with game systems are made for the masses, meaning they’re made to be the ideal size for most people. This normally means if you have big hands or small hands, you’re going to have a harder go of it.
If you’re like me and have huge hands, those controllers are not comfortable after the first hour or two. The grips you hold on to just aren’t long enough, and because it’s what comes standard, we don’t think of trying to find ways to make it better. These PlayBudz Grips seem like they might make your gaming experience a bit more comfortable in that they will let those of us with Sasquatch hands easily wrap our fingers around the controller without leaving a pinkie or two to dangle off the back.
These are made of rubber, and come in black, white, purple, blue, red, green, and super saiyan yellow. You can mix and match or buy a solid set for anywhere from $6.99-9.99. They’ll be adjustable as you can push them further on or off to match your hand size. Once your controller breaks, because it will someday, you can just move this to your next controller and carry on like normal, but more comfortably.

Have you ever wondered whether people are more time-conscious, as in punctual, back in the days when there were no smartphones or mobile phones? All you need to do is to agree on the time and place to meet, and both parties will most of the time, turn up early. Having said that, the smartphone revolution has allowed us to be more flexible with our schedules, and hence, appointments are not kept all that punctual any more. Perhaps you need something more accurate in your life, like the $49.95 Phone Charging Atomic Alarm Clock.
The Phone Charging Atomic Alarm Clock is an always-accurate alarm clock which will also double up as a smartphone charger, where it will show off the time in 1.25″ high numbers with an illuminating backlight that allows it to be clearly read at night. With the use of colorful LEDs, the day/date, temperature, humidity, and moon phases will also be shown with 0.75″ high letters and numbers, offering precise time across the entire lower 48 United States, while the clock’s radio receiver synchronizes with NIST-F1, the United States’ atomic clock which will never gain or lose a second in 60 million years. Devices that hook up via an existing USB cable to the 1-amp port on the side allows for overnight charging, and it comes with automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment, alarm, and a 12/24 hour time format.

In the good old days of the West, back before they discovered the wonders of gunpowder and what it can do, it looks like wartime weapons in the medieval period were pretty crude, crossbows and all. However, the great thinker Leonardo Da Vinci has also done his fair bit of contribution to this area of warfare with the trebuchet, and you can now build one (non-lethal) version by yourself with the $24.99 Leonardo Da Vinci Wooden Invention Kits: Trebuchet.
This entire kit has been pre-cut, drilled, and is ready-to-assemble (like the Avengers), where you can then come up with your very own trebuchet without having to go through engineering classes and the like. It is the perfect gift for history buffs, teachers, and weapons fanatics, and would require an hour or two of your time, tops. Of course, you will need to make sure that you have a ruler, scissors, some small clamps, and pennies (or rocks) as a counterweight handy before you get started, and this unique DIY trebuchet has a range of 20 feet as well. It will be made from natural untreated wood and plywood with some clay balls accompanying it to destroy those LEGO brick walls that you have built.

Now here is a gaming computer that will definitely up the ante when it comes to gaming computers, and it hails from none other than MSI Computer Corp. MSI’s announcement of the Vortex happens to see it being a VR-ready, high-performance miniature tower which will be able to redefine compact gaming desktops, as it holds the distinction of being the smallest gaming cylinder in the world. In fact, the MSI Vortex comes with a measurement of a mere 10.5” in height, and yet has the ability to run with the best of them thanks to an unlocked Intel Core i7 6700K processor, not to mention having up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, SSDs in Super RAID 4 configuration, and dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 GPUs in SLI.
Apart from that, the most recent tower from MSI has also been specially engineered for superior upgradability, expandability, and compatibility with a variety of connectors, and among those include Thunderbolt 3 that supports up to 40GBs of data transfer rate. It might be minimal in footprint, but do bear in mind that it has maximum performance. The Vortex will boast of MSI’s 360° Silent Storm Cooling technology that delivers extreme coolness even under the most intense gaming sessions. This particular cooling system will create a vortex-shaped wind path as it captures heat from the bottom of the unit and circulates it upwards, resulting in superior thermals and acoustics. In addition, with a 450W 80 plus Gold power supply that is built into the Vortex, space use is minimized.
Capable of supporting up to half a dozen video outputs for intense multi-tasking and multi-screen experiences, the Vortex is also 4K ready, as it delivers lag-free gaming thanks to Killer DoubleShot X3 connectivity, accompanied by an immersive multimedia experience with Nahimic Military X Gaming, which is the first audio technology adopted by the French Army to vividly reproduce audio in their aircraft training simulators.
The Vortex can be yours with a starting price of $2,199.99 a pop.

How long and how often do you brush your teeth? Do you give them the once over and run out the door without using floss or mouthwash, or do you take time to make sure every tooth knows it’s cared for by doing the full dental hygiene routine? More often than not we fit the former category, mainly because we’re running late most of the time, but also because we’re not really thinking about it too much.
It would definitely help if we set a timer on our phones to make us consciously aware of how much time we’re spending on our pearly whites. Of course, you may not always have your phone with you, or remember to open up the clock app and set a timer. The Bobble Toothbrush Holder and Timer is a way to solve that issue, as it will not only keep your toothbrush off of germ-infested surfaces when you’re not using it, but it will also set up to 2 minutes of a timer so you know how long to keep brushing.
It is weighted and has a rubberized base so that even wet surfaces won’t have it sliding off the side of the sink. This ticks the time away so there’s a constant audial reminder happening, and it comes in white with an accent color of pink, grey, or blue. It is a very simple gizmo that you should be able to manage without, but it only costs $5.10, and if nothing else can replace your current toothbrush holder.

Your phone has a wonderful little light on the back that is perfect for illuminating group pictures or guiding you around at night. However, when you want to take a selfie, there’s not a light on the front, and the forward-facing camera is usually not as great of quality as the one on the back. That being said, having less light and not as great a camera means you’re going to get pictures that aren’t what you’d want them to be.
If you want perfect photos every time, then you’re going to need extra help in the light department. The Lumee Phone Case can help you get the results you want, as it provides you with a bright light that will fill in all the shadows on your face. It thankfully comes with a variable dimmer, which you can change to fit your surroundings by holding down the on/off button.
This light is powered by a lithium-ion battery inside the durable plastic case which can keep lighting up your face for up to 36 hours on the lowest setting. This could also be used as a flashlight if for some reason the light on the back of your phone isn’t enough. Since this was designed by a photographer for the sole purpose of taking amazing pictures, this is going to cost you a whopping $49.95. There are options for black, white, and rose colored cases, and you can get different models at various prices for different types of phones aside from the 5 or 5S.
