Riding a bicycle from place to place is wonderful for your health and the environment. Sure the weather can be a nuisance sometimes, and it does take a bit longer to get from point A to B, but that can be easily dealt with. However, drivers attempting to edge you off the road, throw things at you, or trying to knock you off balance is not so simple to live with.
While you can’t stop humans from being idiots at times, you can record them and let an authority figure dole out some consequences. The Fly6 will allow you to not only film any tom-foolery that may go down, but also act as a light for the back of your bike. It uses some very bright red LEDs, that will indicate that it is filming when it’s on. Depending on what capacity of SD card you use, you can capture anywhere from 2-8 hours of footage.
This isn’t waterproof, but it can withstand a little moisture. Its recording capabilities will give you decent audio, and 720p video. That way no one can dispute that you might have said something to provoke the driver. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery which will run for about five hours, and can only attach to the seat post of your bike. Getting one of these during its crowdfunding campaign days will cost you around $115 or more.

Everyone deserves a fond childhood memory, and for many of us who grew up in the 1980s as well as the early 1990s, you would surely know of the experience of feeding a regular arcade cabinet quarter after quarter after quarter in an attempt to complete some of the classic arcade titles, including the likes of Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and in the later years, Street Fighter II. Well, here is one way to enjoy a blast from the past in a practical manner – with the $59.99 Classic Arcade Wristwatch.
The name of this particular device says it all – the Classic Arcade Wristwatch would feature a classic arcade cabinet right on your wrist, although it would have already undergone the rigors of a “shrinking ray”, or so it seems. There will be fire buttons that will light up the dial in red, while making the “pew” noise that we are all so familiar with, but other than that, everything else remains pretty much ornamental. It would be cool if they could really have squeezed in an actual, playable arcade title in there. The Classic Arcade Wristwatch has been fully decorated for a fictional game of Galactic Defense, and arrives in a stainless steel case, black leather band with white contrast stitching.

When it comes to telling the time, most of us would rely on our respective smartphones to get the job done at a single glance, although there will be some of us out there who prefer the good old fashioned way of a regular clock. The thing about clocks is this – some of them might actually feature some boring design that you could end up overlooking the time itself, so why not embrace the future with the $129.95 Giant Display Atomic Wall Clock?
This is a unique wall clock which is not only oversized by itself, it is also capable of maintaining its unerring accuracy from the radio clock transmitter in Fort Collins, Colorado. The digital display itself would rely on 4.5” high numbers, which would ensure that you can easily tell the time even from up to a whopping 30′ away. Not only that, there will be 2” high numbers located right below the time, where the display would tell of the date, day, indoor and outdoor temperature. In addition, there will be a wireless outdoor thermometer which communicates with the clock from up to 330′ away, where it delivers a range of -4° F to 122° F. Fret not about Daylight Saving Time, it will be adjusted automatically, and you will be able to enjoy accurate time across the entire lower 48 United States.

While we love our music, not everyone around us wants to listen to it too. This is where having a nice pair of headphones comes in. We get more out of our tunes with quality headphones or ear buds because we can hear every crisp note. If our devices are becoming smarter and smarter, shouldn’t that hold true for this aspect as well?
Maybe no one thought to do it until now, but The Dash is certainly doing it right. This is the world’s first pair of wireless smart in-ear headphones that do everything you could hope for and more. They have 4GB of storage which translates to about 1,000 songs (you don’t even need your phone during a run!), an accelerometer to keep track of your steps and distance during a workout, heart and temperature monitors, and so much more. These can be used up to 1m underwater, as a headset or walkie-talkie, and everything is controlled through gestures near the ear buds or by tapping on them.
After testing the shapes of hundreds of different ears, they created three sleeves sized at small, medium, and large for this device so that it will have a snug fit. The ear bone microphone should be able to pick up your words clearly, and you can choose to completely eliminate exterior sound, or make sure it’s louder than whatever you’re listening to. Its battery can last about 3 hours on less than a one hour charge, and it has an SDK available for those who like to tinker with what it can do. Putting down $179-199 will get you a pair of these super-powered headphones.

Lexibook has had its fair bit of success with children’s electronics as well as high tech products, and in order to maintain their cutting edge in this particular industry, they have announced the launch of the world’s first Android educational and entertainment living room console which has been specially designed for littles ones aged 3 years and above. The concept behind this Android-powered console is pretty simple – connect, learn, and play! Let us check out what the starter pack in this Lexibook console has to offer for the masses.
This starter pack will come with a light dome with storage compartment for the characters, a single joystick which has been specially designed to work equally well for both right- and left-handers, a pair of characters: Lili the Ladybug, the brand’s visual emblem, and her best friend Enzo, the dauntless zebra, 26 comprehensive educational activities based on learning letters, words, numbers, shapes, and the seasons, as well as an interactive, pedagogically-designed picture dictionary, with over 10 games that were designed to develop children’s dexterity and logical skills, and an interactive book, and pre-loaded videos among others.
Not only that, one will be able to gain access to the LexiBox Market which would open the door to download thousands of free applications, allowing parents to bid farewell to expensive cartridges that are reminiscent of the NES and SNES days. One will be able to access a library of interactive books, including the famous Mr. Men and Little Miss books, not to mention gaining access to a VideoStore that holds a large number of videos for viewing.
The console itself boasts of a 3D welcome interface which will see the two little characters introduced, as they help guide kids through the LexiBox universe. Every single aspect of navigation has been designed to be intuitive, interactive, playful and stimulating. Parents too can rest easy knowing that secure Wi-Fi connection provided by Lexibook Protect will offer control over console usage time s well as its services thanks to the “time management” feature. Pricing details have yet to be determined as at press time though.
While we love listening to music, our devices can’t follow us everywhere we go. Most pairings of water and gadgets generally aren’t a good idea, but that doesn’t stop us from trying. We’ll turn our tunes on full blast while taking a shower, or sit our phones on the edge of the tub, leading to possible disaster. If you’d prefer not to need a replacement for your gizmos, then you might want a waterproof speaker.
The Brookstone Waterproof Speaker can provide you with booming beats in and out of the water. It is Bluetooth enabled, so it can be paired up with your smartphone or tablet. As stated previously, this is submersible, but it shouldn’t go any lower than 3 feet, as it too has limitations. This would be perfect for singing in the shower, ambient sound for a bath, or by the pool whenever mother nature decides that it’s time to warm up.
This is capable of a 33 foot range, and has a built-in rechargeable battery that can last for around 20 hours off of one charge. It has the ability to be hung up or stand on its own to fit whatever occasion you face. While there aren’t specifics about the quality of the speakers, it will certainly be better than your phone, especially when it’s on the other side of a shower curtain. This carries a price tag of $73, and of course will be a little extra thanks to shipping.

It’s very difficult to pull ourselves out of bed in the morning. The allure of an extra five minutes of sleep is often too overwhelming. Sadly, that brief respite often turns into a thirty minute ordeal in which we wake in a panic and go careening to the front door. While the loud sounds of an alarm can sometimes boost you out of bed, you become used to its sound after a while, and need a little more motivation to get you up and at ‘em.
While you could put your alarm clock on the dresser and try to make yourself get up to turn it off, there are other ways to propel you out of bed faster. The Pay to Snooze Alarm Clock will help you to get up, or make you pay up. The only way you can get in those precious extra minutes of sleep is by putting money in the clock. Keep in mind, this is the case for both the snooze and to shut off the alarm clock, but it’s not as if the money is going to disappear once you put it in.
This would be a great way to save up your spare change for a treat down the road. It will also make sure you’re on top of your game in the mornings, as there is some level of prior planning involved for this to work. You will need two AA batteries to get this to function, and it has an LCD display to show you the time. If this sounds like the right morning method of waking up for you, be prepared to pay $42 for this alarm clock.

Folks who do a whole lot of gaming would know that audio is extremely important in the enjoyment of a particular title. After all, this is no longer the 1980s or early 1990s where ordinary games can still pass by with simple beeps and boops without taking too much away from the overall enjoyment. Special sound effects add a whole new dimension to gameplay, where you would feel totally immersed in the game, not to mention helping you discover just where your opponent is in a one-on-one first person shooter deathmatch. The thing is, not every one of us have the luxury of staying alone or have the means to build a dedicated gaming room, as we have to share our living space with other humans. Sometimes, our gaming times clashes with their sleeping pattern, so you are unable to crank up the volume to your preferred level, if at all. This is where a pair of headphones come in handy, and the PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset does seem to be a decent fit.
The new PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset will be able to deliver 7.1 virtual surround sound, custom audio modes that have been created by developers specially for PlayStation games, a hidden noise cancelling microphone that will be able to handle all of your voice chat needs as you play online, and customizable faceplates, among other features. The asking price ain’t too shabby either, as you will have to fork out a relatively affordable $99.99.
The PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is rather versatile in the sense where you can hook it up to your PS4, PS3 or computer using the wireless adaptor, where its internal battery is able to go for up to 8 hours of non-stop gameplay before it requires a recharge. Not only that, this particular headset will play nice with your PS Vita or other mobile device thanks to the included 3.5mm audio cable. Sporting a portable, folding design as well as travel pouch, it will be ideal for playing games or listening to music at home or on the move.
We all like to live as efficiently as possible. Otherwise, how else do you explain the obsession with accuracy as well as punctuality? Not only that, it is all about making sure that as many things as possible get done within the shortest time available. The modern day road warrior has his or her fair share of gadgets, where a smartphone is more or less a given, while other folks tend to complement their handsets with the presence of a tablet as well. Throw in a dedicated GPS unit and another portable USB-powered device, and you’ve got a fair amount of gizmos to juice up at the end of the day. With the $99.95 Four Device Charging Clock Radio, you need not fret on your travels.
As its name suggests, the Four Device Charging Clock Radio will be able to charge up to a quartet of devices simultaneously, thanks to the four USB ports that are available. There will be a trio of docks that are located on top of the clock radio which will ensure that your devices remain upright, while the radio will play music from any one connected device. The dock itself will also be able to play your favorite tunes as long as it is connected to a compatible device, where the dual integrated stereo speakers deliver music to your ears. The entire Four Device Charging Clock Radio takes up less space than a toaster, and comes with built-in power surge protection, an FM radio, an LCD clock, and dual alarms.
