Essential Info

Now you can call home to turn on the lights, hot tub, heat, music, and more! This amazing device gives you control of ten X10 devices from any touchtone telephone. When you call in to your home phone, the X10 Telephone Responder picks up after 30 seconds. You will then hear 3 beeps. At this point you can press a number 0 – 9 that corresponds to each of the 10 devices available followed by * for on and # for off. A three digit security code can be set before access is allowed if desired. The Telephone Responder can also be set to flash X10 controlled lights or activate chime modules when the phone rings, great for when you are outside or for the hearing impaired. Featuring easy installation, the X10 Telephone Responder simply plugs into a 110V wall receptacle and standard phone jack.

Turning devices On/Off by phone is simple with X10 technology. Simply plug your choice of Telephone Transponder or Responder into a telephone jack and into a 110V AC outlet. Any X10 compatible receivers in the house can now be controlled by telephone. Thermostats can be controlled by using a Universal Module to interrupt the connection to your existing thermostat or by replacing your thermostat with an X10 controllable thermostat.

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.

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.
