Now that we are well in the middle of autumn, not to mention the fact that winter too, will follow suit not too long after (especially when you take into consideration just how fast time flies these days), it is time to break out all of those various jackets and clothes that will help keep us nice and warm. Many jackets do come with a zipper as you wrap yourself up tightly in one of them, so why not augment the zipper on your jacket with the $12.98 Zipper Pull Watch?
After all, most jackets do come with a long sleeve, and you would want to do all you can to keep the cold out, so looking at your watch too often might not be a good idea. With the Zipper Pull Watch, you will not only be able to give your zipper a better grip, it also comes with a built-in clock for you to tell the time in a jiffy. Oh yeah, did we mention that this puppy also comes with an integrated light? That will certainly be handy if you need to rummage through your handbag in the cinema, or simply need an emergency flashlight. Using it is a snap – just twist to turn it on. The Zipper Pull Watch is waterproof and thankfully, it uses replaceable batteries, making this one for the long haul.

Anyone who has had a dog and loved training it would be able to tell you that positive reinforcement works a whole lot better compared to actually keeping it on a tight leash and using harsh and loud commands. The same kind of psychology can also be applied to children, although with children, there are also emotions that come into play. Some children are naturally more obedient, while others do seem to have a mind of their own – the challenge of a parent would be to ensure that their child is motivated in the best manner possible, without having to fear of threats and spankings. Enter the $39.95 Children’s Activity Motivator.
The Children’s Activity Motivator is said to be the only activity tracker that was specially made for children, where it utilizes 50 fun active play challenges in order to encourage the development of healthy habits. One would wear this on the wrist, where the tracker’s splash-resistant color display will let the child choose and customize an animated pet that functions as a play coach. It will boast of 10 movement challenges, including hopping like a kangaroo, wiggling like a worm, or spinning like a helicopter; and parents have the option to download another 36 more movements. A progress bar will show the number of movement points collected until all 8 pets are unlocked, not to mention picking up extra rewards along the way. It will rely on USB to recharge its built-in battery, and this is one great way to get your child up and moving around instead of being glued to the TV all day long.

One of the biggest leaps in consumer class audio technology was the jump from mono to stereo sound. I am quite sure that those who lived through that particlar moment in time actually felt as though they were in a whole new world. Turtle Beach, one of the leading audio brands where the video games industry is concerned, has just announced of their latest Turtle Beach Z60 PC gaming headset that was unveiled to the masses earlier this year, but never made it to the market – not at least until now. The Turtle Beach Z60 holds the distinction of being the first PC gaming headset from them that will boast of the brand new DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound.
Basically, the entire idea of the DTS Headphone:X technology is to ensure that one experiences a whole new world of sound when it comes to having headphones deliver the likes of movies, music and games to the user. This is made possible since it enables a much more discrete control over speaker position and angles, hence users are able to enjoy soundscapes which are a whole lot more realistic than what current surround sound solutions delivers.
For instance, majority of the surround sound mixes at the moment would place the center channel approximately eight feet in front of the listener perceptually, which would be the default for TV and film considering how the dialogue tends to come from the screen. When it comes to games like a first person shooter, alongside many other kinds of different game genres, however, most of the center channel audio would hail from the player’s character – for instance, the sound of the player’s feet walking in the snow, their inbound radio, and the sound of spent cartridges being ejected from their gun. With DTS Headphone:X, gaming presets have been developed by the audio engineers which results in gaming presets that will “pull” the center channel in the direction of the players’ midsection, ensuring that the placement of those sounds end up as being more realistic.
The Z60 will also boast of PC gaming’s largest speakers at 60mm, where it offers an expansive soundscape and bone-rattling bass. There will be an inline control unit that provides easy access to independent game and chat volume, while surround sound modes and microphone mute options are also available.

It does not take too much to capture the attention of a young child, and all you need would be to have something cute, and they are good to go.

The $149.95 Plush Buddy Bouncer is one such unique offering that sports a plush cover that has been shaped like a ladybug or racecar, being a mini trampoline that will be able to deliver countless hours of indoor exercise and entertainment for the little ones – perfect whenever the weather is foul on the outside.
This smiling toy would be extremely inviting for young trampolinists to help them burn off some energy as they bounce and jump around, making it a whole lot easier to tuck them in at the end of a long day. Of course, with first time parents, there will also be an element of risk, but fret not as the Plush Buddy Bouncer will sport a practical design that ensures safety. It will also feature a sturdy steel frame that will not rock or shake, while the 30 springs come completely covered so that one’s foot will not be able to slip through, and the platform itself stands only 81/2″ off the ground.

More often than not, serious gamers have a rather high powered desktop that has all the bells and whistles thrown into the mix in order to deliver a truly astounding gaming experience, with high frame rates and all that jazz. Translating that gaming experience over to the mobile front is more challenging, and these gaming notebooks tend to be large and heavy, really not ideal for long haul travel especially if you need to tote it around on a showfloor for the entire day. Still, gaming notebooks do not really have the kind of hardware capability that can match up to a dedicated gaming desktop, but this has not stopped MSI from trying as they have just announced that the GS Stealth/Ghost Series and GT Dominator Series gaming laptops will feature NVIDIA’s latest GTX 900M Series graphics.
With that you know for sure that your gaming notebook will come with an unprecedented level of power alongside an array of cutting-edge features, where among them include MSI’s new SHIFT technology. These new gaming notebooks are touted to deliver up to 28% more graphics performance, ensuring you get to bring your gaming experience with you the next time you are on the road.
The exclusive SHIFT power adjustment technology will be able to let one tweak both CPU and GPU performance easily in order to best suit one’s needs. SHIFT will feature a trio of proprietary modes: Sport to maximize CPU and GPU usage for extreme performance, Comfort for a smooth and balanced ride, and Green, which enables the lowest power consumption of both CPU and GPU while maintaining the coolest constant temperatures for both.
There will also be an extreme level of customization found in all NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900M Series graphics equipped laptops thanks to the Dragon Gaming Center and SteelSeries Engine from MSI. This way, gamers are able to SHIFT CPU and GPU usage via the Dragon Gaming Center as well as monitor system performance, temperature, network speed, power consumption, and fan speed, among others. The presence of the SteelSeries Engine provides gamers with the ability to personalize playing style with over a billion customization options.
Well, avid gamer, what are you waiting for? The MSI GT72 Dominator, GT70 Dominator and GT60 Dominator gaming laptops that come equipped with NVIDIA’s GTX 900M graphics will have a starting price of $1,599.99 each.

If you were to be a cat and would like to learn about the solar system, just what would be the best way of getting around doing so? Some folks might say that using sardines or tuna as an incentive would be the perfect way of doing so, but the folks over at Thinkgeek have come up with the $19.99 DIY Solar System, which is a fun way as well since it will allow one to make planets using yarn. And we all jolly well know just how crazy can cats be when it comes to a ball of yarn, although they tend to be more destructive than constructive.
The solar system is our home, where we happen to live on the third rock from the sun in which we call earth. The DIY Solar System allows one to craft out the entire solar system using nothing but yarn, as you wrap balloons in yard alongside a special kind of glue solution, giving the glue some time to harden before you pop those balloons. Once done, it is up to you to paint those planets according to the colors of your choice although it would be best to pull out an encyclopedia and paint them accordingly. Each purchase will also come with a16 page manual that will be accompanied by a trio of experiments.

They say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and I thoroughly agree with this particular statement. In fact, it also makes perfect sense that we learn best when there is no pressure at all, and it happens frequently in an environment of play. Having said that, if you think that your little one has the budding potential to be an engineer in the future, how about picking up the $19.99 Slime Time as a gift set? This particular Slime Time set would allow one to construct a clock that is powered by – yup, you’ve guessed it, slime!
Slime Time would enable one to piece together a simple digital clock, where instead of installing batteries, one would be required to connect the electrodes up to a couple of test tubes that have been filled with electro-goop. This particular goop is said to be able to produce more than its fair share of electricity so that it can power the clock, and at the same time teach you concerning the electrochemical reactions, electrodes, and batteries. Each purchase comes with a 16 page manual to help you get started with a trio of experiments, not to mention sporting a base plate with battery holder, digital clock, 2 test tube holders, 2 test tubes, 2 test tube caps, copper electrode, zinc electrode, copper and zing electrode pair, 2 contact springs, and 2 slime solution bottles.

HTC never really had all that much luck when it comes to devices that are different apart from smartphones. I still remember even back in their heydays when HTC could do no wrong – they attempted to break into the tablet market with the HTC Flyer, but somehow failed to make the most out of it, so much so that there never really was another HTC-branded flyer that arrived after that. This time around, the Taiwanese company looks as though they intend to try something totally new, and that would be the all new HTC Re camera.
Basically, the HTC Re camera intends to change the way that people think about imaging – and HTC wants to take the user out from behind the viewfinder, and to place you, the user, back where you belong, which would be right smack at the heart of all the action that is going on.
The HTC Re camera would be the latest photography innovation fro HTC that intends to re-imagine the point-and-shoot category. Being a tiny handheld camera, the periscope-like HTC Re would enable one to naturally capture and fully experience the moment, all of it done via video and photography, without allowing anything to get in your way. One might think of the GoPro camera to be worth a shot in this category, but that is more for the action oriented person.
With the HTC Re, it comes in a stunning and unique cylindrical design that was specially made to fit comfortably in your hand. Apart from that, there is also an integrated grip sensor which will instantly activate the camera when it is picked up, doing away with the need for a power button. In addition, there is a single shutter button that requires all of but one tap so that it can capture photos, while a longer press paves the way for video recording in order for you not to miss a single moment.
It sports a high-resolution, 16MP CMOS sensor, full HD (1080p) video recording, 146 degree wide-angle lens and slow-motion and time-lapse recording, letting you capture moments unlike how you ever did in the past. There will be the ability to deliver real-time video streaming to YouTube in the future, and the Re app will be made available on both Android and iOS.
