AfterShokz AS320 Aftershokz Sportz 2 Bone Conduction HeadphonesThe AfterShokz sports headphones are the perfect musical companion for anyone who participates in outdoor activities like jogging, biking, or hiking and enable you to still hear the ambient noises of what is around you. If you are running or biking on city surface streets, it is important to hear the noise of the traffic around you so you can keep yourself safe. With the AfterShokz headphones, there is nothing in, on or covering your ears so you are able to hear what is around you while still enjoying your favorite music. Featuring military Special Ops bone conduction technology, the headphones have a wrap around band and sit comfortably in front of the ear, delivering sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ear. These headphones are lightweight, sweat and water resistant and provide listeners with a fabulous stereophonic audio experience while also allowing them to hear ambient noises such as oncoming traffic, car horns, ambulances or other warning noises, potentially preventing accidents caused by headphones and earbuds that block out these sounds. Complete with an in-line control and standard 3.5mm connector, these headphones will fit any iPhone, iPod, iPad, MP3 player, and most other smartphones and have a lifetime warranty.

Turn Heads as You Glide Across the Surface of the Water

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Have you ever watched a waterbug glide across the surface of the water and wished you could do the same?

Well now you can with the AquaSkipper from Inventist. The AquaSkipper lets you fly across the surface of the water and get an exhilarating full body workout in the process. Made of aircraft grade aluminum, hydrofoil wings and a fiberglass spring the AquaSkipper will soar across the top of a body of water as the user hops up and down. The faster you hop, the faster you’ll go and the more intense of a workout you’ll get. Speeds of up to 17mph have even been recorded and a speed of at least 5mph will need to be reached in order for the AquaSkipper to work. The AquaSkipper is environmentally friendly to use as it does not cause water pollution, air pollution or noise pollution because it is powered by the user rather than an engine. Assembly and disassembly can be done in roughly 5-10 minutes making it easy to pack-up and bring with you on the go. The AquaSkipper has a minimum weight requirement of roughly 70 lbs and a maximum of roughly 250 lbs. In order to work the AquaSkipper must be started from above the water’s surface on something such as a boat or a dock in water at least 6.5 feet deep. Read more

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

KidKusion 4730 Retractable Driveway Guard, 18ft - BlackThe Retractable Driveway Guard from KidKusion is a simple solution to establishing boundaries for your child on where they can and can’t play. It is designed to create a barrier between your child, or even pet, and the neighborhood street and all of its traffic. The Driveway Guard is mounted into the ground and the black net extends across the driveway up to 18ft preventing any toys and children from making their way onto the street. The net is weatherproof and 3ft tall helping to catch any bouncing balls headed its way and to deter children from stepping over. When playtime has finished the net quickly, and easily, retracts back into its PVC canister to keep it protected and take-up little room when storing. The Retractable Driveway Guard uses durable galvanized steel end poles to hold it in place when being used and has been given Parenting Magazine’s “Mom Seal of Approval”. The Driveway Guard is not an alternative to adult supervision and it should not be used as a pool fence or gate.

SecurityMan Air-AlarmIIE Wireless Smart Home Security System, Economy
The SecurityMan Air-AlarmIIE is a wireless LED touchpad security alarm system kit for your home or business. It offers a user-friendly, easy to use group of products that are perfect for protection at a minimum investment cost. This Do-It-Yourself (DIY) alarm system does not require monthly fees, which is a key benefit for users. The system will alert you by phone calls through a series of enlisted phone numbers. You can then dial into the host to arm or disarm the system using your phone’s numeric keypad. Main Components include: 1 LED touch keypad (host), 1 Wide-Angle PIR Motion Sensor, 1 Magnetic Door/Window Sensor, 2 Remote Controls, and 1 Warning Sign

The Air-AlarmIIE includes the main controller/keypad interface, a motion sensor and a door/window sensor. It can be upgraded by adding up to a total 60 sensors (15 wireless defense zones and 4 wireless sensors per zone), providing more than enough security for any average home, apartment or business. All the sensors can be smartly deployed into three defense lines: 24hr Defense Line (i.e. emergency panic buttons and smoke sensors), 1st Defense Line (i.e. door/window sensors), and 2nd Defense Line (i.e. PIR motions sensors in living rooms, bed rooms, and hallways). Therefore, you can arm or disarm all or just a group of sensors depending on whether you are at home/business or not.

With its wireless technology, anyone can install the Air-AlarmIIE easily in minutes. Running wire cables around your home/business and the assistance of a professional installer is no longer required. Simply plug in the power adapters, install the batteries, mount all the components at desired locations, connect the phone line, input phone number(s) and you are ready to go. The phone line (land line) connection is not required if the alarm call feature is not needed*. The main host also includes a backup rechargeable battery (up to 16 hrs) in case of power outage and can easily be armed or disarmed by remote controller, telephone, or main host keypad.
