Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard

The Future Has Arrived

Remember when you were promised all those amazing future tech innovations? Just around the corner was supposed to be a shining technology utopia with flying cars, personal space travel to distant galaxies, and bio-implantable cell phones. It’s almost disappointing enough to make you sit at home and watch old episodes of  “Space 1999″.

Don’t lose hope! An amazing glimpse of this promised future has just arrived at ThinkGeek in the form of the Bluetooth Laser Virtual Keyboard. This tiny device laser-projects a keyboard on any flat surface… you can then type away accompanied by simulated key click sounds. It really is true future magic at its best. You’ll be turning heads the moment you pull this baby from your pocket and use it to compose an e-mail on your bluetooth enabled PDA or Cell Phone. With 63 keys and and full size QWERTY layout the Laser Virtual Keyboard can approach typing speeds of a standard keyboard… in a size a little larger than a matchbook.

Dog Water Bowl Connects to Garden Hose for Automatic Filling

dog pan auto fill

  • Dog bowl connects to garden hose for continuous fresh water
  • Water bowl refills automatically when low

Essential Info

It’s not always easy to remember to fill your pet’s water bowl, especially if it’s kept outside. Be assured that your dog has enough to drink at all times: The Automatic Dog Watering Bowl is a 7.5 quart stainless steel bowl that connects directly to your garden hose, which refills the bowl automatically when it gets low.

Note: Hose manufacturers do not recommend drinking from the hose because most hoses are connected to non-potable water. Some hoses have filters built in but it would be a good idea to check your hose filter before hooking it up to this water bowl.

This 1.8 gallon automatic stainless waterer attaches to any garden hose and provides consistent fresh water for your pet at all times. The bowl is fabricated from heavy duty hygienic stainless steel with a durable cover (removes for easier cleaning) made from high density polypropylene, which protects the mechanical float valve providing safety and reliability. Ideal for your cat, dog, sheep, goat, or other animal hydration needs. No training required.

eRases all data cleanly from your hard drive

Drive eRazer

Quick and Easy Hardware Solution that completely erases all data from a hard drive.

Before you dispose of or replace your hard drive … Remember all the data you saved on it …

  • Credit card numbers
  • Corporate data
  • Email address book / contact list
  • Email conversations
  • Financial data
  • Legal documents
  • Passwords
  • Personal photos of friends and family
  • Social Security numbers
  • Software license keys
  • Your name, address and phone number
  • Web browser’s history

Did you know?

  • Deleting a file does not erase it from your hard drive!
  • Formatting a hard drive does not erase the hard drive!
  • It’s possible (and sometimes easy) for someone else to recover files if you don’t dispose of them properly!

What is Drive eRazer?
WiebeTech’s newest hardware solution completely erases all data from a hard drive quickly and easily. Stand-alone operation. No computer required! Faster than software.

Why use hardware?
Drive eRazer is faster than software programs, and Drive eRazer doesn’t tie up a computer. What’s more, it’s far easier. Simply connect it to a drive and flip a switch. No computer needed.

How fast is it?
Faster than software. A conservative estimate is 35MB/s. A 250GB drive would be fully erased in under two hours.*

How safe is it?
Very. Drive eRazer writes zeros over every bit of your drive. After it’s done, there’s nothing left to recover. For those who want even more assurance, we offer a Pro model which is capable of secure erase, a method of drive wiping built into the firmware of many hard drives.

1. Single-Pass mode (Standard and Pro Model)
A single data pattern is written one time across the whole disk, deleting blocks including partitions and Host Protected Areas. Verification is also done after a single pass.

2. Secure Erase mode (Pro Model only)
The Pro model offers the ability to perform a “Secure Erase” pass. Secure Erase, built into modern hard drives, is a NIST certified method of wiping a hard drive – and it’s now supported by Drive eRazer Pro.

How is Secure Erase mode different from single pass mode?

Secure Erase is a feature on many modern hard drives (greater than 15GB). This feature ships in the drive’s firmware (written by the factory), and Drive eRazer can activate it at a hardware level.

Like single pass mode, Secure Erase mode also sequentially overwrites every single bit/track on the hard drive. Both modes overwrite data left at the end of partly overwritten blocks and directories. It better handles, however, data on “bad blocks” (single pass may stop and report an error at a bad block).

Secure Erase could be considered even more safe, too, since manufacturers will trigger specialized clearing commands, making sure to clear any drifting data in the otherwise untouched track margins on the drive platter.

Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System

Watch Video Demo Here

Swift Hitch Portable Wireless Camera System

The Swift Hitch is a portable wireless camera system that provides a quick hitch for any trailer, camper, or snowplow. It comes with a magnetic camera which mounts to your tailgate. A simple on and off switch is located on both the camera and the hand held monitor. Once you get your Swift Hitch camera installed on the tailgate, take a moment to align your hitch ball on the view screen at the bottom towards the center. That way, it will give you maximum field of view to sneak up on the hitch ball. Once you get your camera straight and away, you can view your hitch ball backing up from the comfort of your vehicle, on the LCD screen to achieve an easy and simple hitch up every time. With the help of the camera, you can sneak up on the ball basically on the first try. Once you get pretty much cover on top of the ball, you can go ahead and start lowering your jack and get your trailer hooked up.

The 2.5 inch LCD screen provides clear color display with a 300 foot range of transmission. The night vision mode, which is controlled automatically by the camera, has a range of 15 feet.

The Swift Hitch comes with a weatherproof cover on the camera and a split adapter so you can charge both units at the same time using your cigarette lighter or 12 volt outlet.
