iBreath Alcohol Breathalyzer for your iPhone or iPod

Just when you thought that iPod accessories consist of nothing but cases, speaker docks and earphones, along comes the iBreath Alcohol Breathalyzer. This is pretty much a self-explanatory device - it allows you to take your own alcohol breath test before your brain cells decide that it is better to catch a cab home instead of attempting to rush headlong into a DUI charge.

The iBreath Alcohol Breathalyzer does not require any batteries to run as it sips power off the iPod it is connected to, and all functions as well as results are shown on the iBreath LCD display. It has a BAC range of 0.000 to 0.100% and comes with a timer to let you know when’s the next time for a test. Nice to see it comes with an integrated FM transmitter as well, transmitting your favorite iPod tunes to just about any FM tuner.

The Hanging Alarm Clock jerks out of your reach

This new alarm hangs on a 30cm cable and when it’s time to wake up it will creep up that cable and hide out on your ceiling.  The only way to shut it off is to grab it off the ceiling and hit the stop button.  Which means you’ll end up having to stand to reach the thing.  Hopefully you don’t have a cat though, because it would end up attempting to rip it down from the ceiling.  Which doesn’t look good for either your alarm clock or the cat.

To hit the snooze button, before it reaches the top, smack it good.  Then after five minutes if you haven’t shut it back off it will go off all over again.  The alarm itself actually ticks all the while giving off the sound of a wailing siren.  Then to top it off it flashes a white light.  All together this light would drive anyone insane.  You can pick it up for $29.50 or £19.95 on Firebox.

Unibind Photobook Creator Preserves Memories

I have a wife who is an avid scrapbooker, so we have several books full of our memories ready to be perused by guests. Scrapbooking, if done well, takes a lot of time. However, with devices like the Unibind Photobook Creator, the time is significantly reduced, and the user has the option of binding their own scrapbooks.

The Unibind Photobook Creator is very simple to use. The user takes his or her photos, then prints them on any type of paper. The user then stacks them into a pile, and then puts the stack into the Photobook Creator binder itself. This binder device works like a miniature oven, and it melts the binding into place. Within minutes, the user now has a permanently bound book that he or she can prominently put on display.

The Unibind photobook creator comes in a variety of sizes and colors. The cover has a place for a prominent photo, giving the user an opportunity for his or her own unique stamp. The prices are varied, and if you would like more information, click here.

This isn’t the first time we have reported on Unibind products, and it probably won’t be the last. I have just heard that Unibind has just launched the MyPhotobook Starter Kit, which uses staples for binding. You might be seeing another article about that soon.

I suppose if you’re living near a nuclear plant this would come in handy…

The Start Your Engines Alarm Clock


If your love of cars isn’t being expressed quite enough in your current home décor, you might check out this alarm.  There have been other alarms similar to this one, but luckily this one is a little cheaper than the others I’ve seen.  If you’re on the lookout for a gift for a guy impossible to buy for and he has a love for cars this would be an easy gift to pick up.  I’m sure he’d get a kick out of waking up to the sound of a high-powered V8 engine.

Although frankly I’m not sure how easy it would be to wake up to the sound of an engine.  It’s not that it couldn’t possibly be loud enough.  The issue more is if you live in the city, the sound of your alarm might blend into the traffic noise you’re used to hearing outdoors.  Luckily the engine noise will grow in pitch and intensity until you turn it off.  The clock also includes an AM/FM radio and can be powered by either the AC adapter or AA batteries.  You can purchase it for $29.95 on Hammacher Schlemmer.

Car Windshield Mount with Twin Holders

Most of us don’t just have one gadget we keep in our car.  For many there’s GPS, cellphone and sometimes an iPod too.  Which means it would be nice to have a device that held more of our electronics.  Instead of having several holders that clutter up your car.  Well with this car windshield mount it will hold two of your gadgets.  Ideally I wish it held three, but two at least covers a couple of your important gadgets.  It could hold your cellphone and your GPS or your cellphone and your iPod.  It’s just all depending on which you think is important to be visible.

Although GPS is an item that seems far more effective when you can actually see it.  I suppose there is the possibility that you could put your windshield mount for your GPS above this one and have all three up.  Then again, that might eat the entire windshield of your car.  Each arm for each gadget is adjustable, so you can make sure it’s pointed at an angle where you can clearly see the screen.  You can pick this up for $25.99 on USB Fever.

Cardboard iPhone 3G dock

Want to do your bit for the environment, but have no idea where to start? Well, here’s one - if you own an iPhone 3G but lack a dock, you can always head on here to print it out in PDF format (A4 size, of course), place it on a piece of durable cardboard and start cutting it out with a pair of sharp scissors or a craft knife and voila - you have your very own DIY cardboard iPhone dock. It is highly recommended to use a 270gsm cardboard for best effect, and needless to say this iPhone dock is just like its electronic counterpart - both aren’t waterproof, although the former can be left out to dry and reused in the event of an accidental spill while you’ll need to buy a new one with the latter.

Coffee Cup Power Inverter charges your gadgets

Keeping all of your gadgets charged and ready to go can be a pain when you’re always busy.  Well now if you need to charge a gadget that doesn’t have a car charger attachment, you can still manage to charge it up.  It will also be great for those times when you’ve left your car charger for your cellphone someplace.  You could easily thieve the wall charger from home and pop it in your car.  Just put this cup into a cup holder, then plug it into your car charger and you have two three prong outlets to play with.

Along with the three prong outlets, it also features a USB port to charge other gadgets like your iPod.  Which means if you’re a gadget addict, you can charge three of them at once while you’re on your way to work.  The cup is 6” tall and will fit in standard cup holders.  Being about the size of a coffee cup, it would likely manage to fit in the cup holder of a VW Beetle.  Which trust me, is a grand accomplishment in itself.  You can pick up the charger for $29.95 on Think Geek.
