Walking Table

12 Apr

Oh sure, the invention of the wheel was a pretty big milestone in the history of mankind, but let’s not forget that before its creation our good old legs were more than capable of getting us around. So maybe it was designed as an homage to a simpler time before man got caught up in wheel-hysteria, but I have to say I really like this walking table electronic gadgets from Wouter Scheublin which forgoes casters in favor of a set of legs to move it around.

A fairly simple set of wooden mechanics results in a natural walking motion of its 8 legs as you push it across the floor, but unfortunately it’s limited to motion in only one direction. Turning it or moving it lengthwise is out of the question… You win this round wheels!

The Walking Table electronic gadgets is also exclusively available from Priveekollektie in a limited edition run of 8 walnut pieces, so if it’s not already sold out, you can safely assume it’s not going to be cheap.

Canon Rebel T3 DSLR reviewed: a safe bet for first-time shooters

28 Mar


Are you a true contrarian looking for a camera that befits your nonconformist lifestyle? Well, Canon’s latest entry-level DSLR may not be the most unruly camera out, but at least it sports a moniker that fits the bill. The Canon T3 Rebel, also known as the EOS 1100D electronic gadgets, are a 12.2-megapixel affair designed with the DSLR newbie in mind, and according to a review over at PhotographyBlog, it doesn’t sacrifice image quality for ease of use. Touted as a successor to the Rebel XS, the T3 actually carries over some useful features from its more sophisticated sibling, the T3i, including a user-friendly control layout, but lacks the camera’s Scene Intelligent auto mode and extensive list of creative filters. Aside from that, the reviewer found T3’s grips too slick and its diminutive LCD screen a minor setback, but was quick to point out that none of these is a deal-breaker. In fact, aside from a bit of noise encountered at the highest ISO setting, the camera delivers high quality photographs even in low light. All things considered, it looks like the Rebel T3 electronic gadgets, is a “responsive and intuitive DSLR” for the novice photog, and at $600, it’s got at least some of the competition beat. Now, we won’t tell you what to do, but if we were you, we’d click the source link to see how the T3 stacks up.

Water-Powered Color-Changing LED Shower Head

23 Mar


Besides adding a little ‘bling’ or pizazz to your bathroom, color changing LED-equipped shower heads are often touted as having chroma-therapeutic benefits. Whether or not that’s true is beyond my area of expertise, but I know for a fact that this particular LED shower head most definitely has medical benefits, in that it will prevent you from accidentally getting a nasty burn.

Coolest tech gadgets!

Instead of flashing in random discotheque-like colors and patterns, the LEDs in this shower head indicate the temperature of the water. Oddly enough green is used in to indicate temperatures below 90°F, blue covers 91 to 105°F and red is about 107 to 113°F. Anything above 114°F will cause the shower head to flash red, letting you know it might be wise to add some cold water into the mix. And don’t worry about having to run power to the shower head. An internal generator powered by the flow of the water provides enough electricity for the temperature monitor and LEDs to do their thing. Available from Chinavasion for ~$13.

I’m Sure There’s Lots Of Demand For A $1,300 Morse Code Signal Lamp These Days Right?

23 Mar

I’m not saying it will never be useful, I’m just saying I’m finding it hard to see how anyone could justify dropping $1,300 on a decorative morse code lamp, even if it is fully functional. It’s got seven louvers covering the 13 1/2-inch lamp which are controlled by a metal handle, and the aluminum and brass finishes give it an authentic look that I’m sure any family member who served in the Navy in the late 1800’s will appreciate. Though in lieu of the carbon arc lamps of yesteryear it uses a single 100-watt bulb of your choosing for your illumination. So purists beware! Available from where other than Hammacher Schlemmer.

Top 8 Radar Detectors for Drivers

20 Mar

If you drive a lot and they are legal in your state a radar detector can keep you from getting into trouble. Radar detectors are legal in my state and I am not the sort that speeds or races, but I often end up going faster than I thought I was and run up on a cop.

There is nothing worse than the feeling you get when you pop over a hill doing 80mph in a 70mph zone without realizing you are even doing it only to find a cop at the bottom of the hill. Radar detectors for many people aren’t so they can go as fast as they want, but just to help them remember to check there speed when they hear the beep.

I can remember as a kid my dad had a radar detector and it beeping constantly. If you went by a store with automatic doors it beeped, it beeped so much you hardly knew when it was worth listening too and when to ignore it. The newer radar detectors on the market today are much different from that. These electronic gadgets are more particular about when they go off and when they don’t.

They are also able to detect more radar bands including laser detectors. However, nothing will protect you from the instant on laser radar that many police agencies use today. When you are shopping for a radar detector there are gobs and gobs of them out there and they can get very expensive. Some of them will alert you to intersections with cameras or speed cameras using GPS and an integrated database. These are great for people that drive in unfamiliar areas a lot. I always seem to be the driver that gets in the spot in traffic where the light changes to yellow and I can’t decide to hit the brakes hard or go on through the intersection. It would be nice to know if there were cameras there watching me.

Some of the radar detectors on the market will also show you if the radar is in front of you or behind you and some have a digital compass and color screens while others make due with lights and beepers. If the beeps drive you crazy, some have a voice sort of like a GPS uses too to make things more agreeable with you. Whatever you order just be sure that a radar detector is legal in your state and get one to suit your needs and your budget. Check out the list below for some of the coolest radar detectors around.
