amPlug VOX Mini Guitar Am

guitar amplug

Rock in Your Pocket

  • Pocket size guitar amp with real tube-amp sound
  • Plugs directly into your guitar or bass
  • AUX in jack lets you jam along to your mp3 player

Practicing those hot guitar licks can be a bit of an inconvenience when you need to lug around a big heavy guitar amp. But Korg has got you covered with the amPlug VOX Mini Guitar Amp. These tiny amps plug directly into your guitar to give you truly amazing sound… and that is no exaggeration. The Amplug amps sound just the full size VOX amps they are based on, but instead of waking up the neighborhood you plug in headphones for personal listening.

Even with its ultra-compact size, the amPlug perfectly reproduces the complex and warm distortion that is distinctive of a vacuum tube, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack.

Pocket Radar Faster than a speeding bullet

pocket radar

Faster than a speeding bullet? Now you’ll know!

  • K-Band Handheld Doppler Speed Radar
  • Measures from: 7 MPH to 375 MPH (11 KPH to 600 KPH)
  • Easy to Use One-Button “Point and Shoot” Interface

We’re pretty sure you won’t run into Superman anytime soon. At least not the real Superman. (Don’t tell us he’s just a character in a comic book. We don’t believe you. Santa’s real, too.) You may bump into some imitation Supermen at your local comic-con, but we can assure you that they do not break speeds of 3 MPH. In fact, they’re often much slower, especially if the convention is crowded and/or there’s a Slave Leia nearby. But if you did bump into the real Superman, you could whip out your Pocket Radar and verify that his speed was indeed faster than a speeding bullet.

The Bladeless Fan – technology found in jet engines to generate a cooling air

fan bladeless

The Bladeless Fan.

Winner of Time magazine’s “Best Inventions” award, this is the fan that uses technology found in jet engines to generate a cooling air stream without any blades.  A turbine inside the base draws in air and propels it up to the loop amplifier. Air is expelled through a 1-mm slot along the circumference of the loop amplifier and across a 16º airfoil-shaped ramp. Using the aerodynamic principles of inducement and entrainment, the fan draws air from behind and along its sides into the air stream, generating optimal air velocity. The bladeless fan produces a smooth, uninterrupted stream of air, unlike typical fan blades that “chop” air into uneven, intermittent breezes. A dial allows smooth, continuous adjustment of air velocity. The fan’s 5 1/2″-diameter base sets up unobtrusively on a desktop or table, it oscillates 90º, and tilts 10º up or down.

The Solar Powered Golf Cart

solar golf cart

The Solar Powered Golf Cart.

This is the electric golf cart that has an array of 72 photovoltaic cells built into the roof that collect solar energy, providing up to 33% more range between recharges than non-solar electric golf carts. The cart’s 160-watt array produces up to three amps per hour for its 48-volt rechargeable battery system, providing a range of up to 49 miles–approximately 10 rounds of golf–before requiring a full recharge (overnight via its 6′ long AC adapter; 15 hours via its solar array). The array also extends the life of the battery system by 60% more than other electric golf carts. Its 5 1/2-hp electric motor and 19-spline rear axle provides a maximum speed of 24 MPH and is powerful enough to enable the cart to climb a 28° incline when fully loaded with two passengers and golf bags, supporting up to 755 lbs. The cart uses rack and pinion steering, leaf springs, and heavy shock suspension to provide a smooth, even ride on its rugged 8″ pneumatic tires. A built-in speed controller allows you to limit the maximum speed, and its self-adjusting drum brakes provide reliable stopping. Includes a two-person seat with vinyl upholstery, four cup holders, and straps for securing two golf bags. The cart has headlights, turn indicators, brake lights, and a horn. 7 3/4′ L x 3 3/4′ W x 5 3/4′ H (1,100 lbs.)

The Camera Lens Mug

camera mug

Just a week ago, we walked into our local cafe, and our barista handed us our latte in a mug that looked just like a lens! She even topped it off with camera-shaped latte art and creamer in a film canister!

We just about died, but then we woke up instead.

Desperate for our dream to come true, we wished on shooting stars, wishbones, found pennies, fallen eyelashes…and sure enough, it worked!

Behold, the Camera Lens Mug, a mug that looks JUST LIKE a Canon 24-105mm lens!

It’s equipped with a lens-cap lid (omg), rubber-grip focus and zoom rings (o…m…g), and an auto-focus switch that actually switches (OMG)! It’s so realistic, you might have to use post-its just to remind yourself which is your mug and which is your lens!

Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

earreliefpressure  Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

Instant relief from ‘blocked’ ears and ear pressure pain. This pressure equaliser was invented by an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, so it’s entirely safe to use. Rising external pressure during flights, mountain climbing, skiing or diving etc slightly deforms our eardrums, and the resulting ‘blockage’ can be severely painful. This gadget works by producing a counteractive negative pressure inside your ear, relaxing the ear drum and Eustachian tube to allow air back into the middle ear. It’s a neat pocket size so it’s easy to carry with you, and a safety valve limits the suction force so it can never create too much pressure. Simply unwind the tube and insert the earpiece in your ear, then press the membrane gently for instant relief.

  • Safe for any age 3 years +
  • CE tested
  • Complies with Medical Directive 93/42/EC
  • Australian TV innovation award winner on ‘The New Inventors’
  • Comes with 3 ear piece sizes
  • Manufacturer’s 2-year guarantee
  • 3½” x 2” x 1” (9 x 5.2 x 2.5cm)
