Treasure Seeker Metal Detecting Sandals

metal detector

metal detector

Look for treasure anywhere with these discreet metal detecting Sandles! Great for metal detecting, but also for comfortable summer and beach wear.

We all would like to find a Saxon hoard or three, but who wants to spend hours carrying round on of those slightly silly looking, heavy and awkward metal detectors?

Here’s the solution! These Sandles have a metal detecting system built into the sole of the sandal, and the alarm unit straps to your leg. You’ll get a buzz or vibration, or can use the LED indicator lights when the shoes detect metal below them, and then all you have to do is do a little digging.

So, not only do you get some practical comfortable beach/summer wear, but you could potentially find treasure as well! The shoes can be used with or without the metal detecting function as the power / metal detecting unit can be detached when ever you want.

So, why not slip on a par of these, and go for a walk – you never know what you might find on your daily stroll…

Made of chunky, durable, soft and comfortable moulded plastic these shoes are great for treasure seeking and walking alike.

Features:

  • Treasure seeking sandals
  • Black colour
  • Soft and comfortable moulded plastic
  • Metal detecting unit straps to your leg
  • Soes can be used with or without metal detecting unit
  • Vibration, buzz or LED metal indicator alert
  • Requires 1 x 9 volt battery (not included)
  • Available in small, medium or large. Small (Men’s size up to 7/ Women’s size 8), Medium (Men’s size 7.5 to 9/ Women’s 8.5 to 10), Large (Men’s size 9.5 – 12/ Women’s size 10.5 to 13)
  • GOOD LUCK!

Hidden RFID tags could mean end of bar-codes and lines at the checkout

rfid tag

Newly developed radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology could usher in the era of checkout line-free shopping. The inexpensive, printable transmitter can be invisibly embedded in packaging offering the possibility of customers walking a cartload of groceries or other goods past a scanner that would read all the items at once, total them up and charge the customer’s account while adjusting the store’s inventory. More advanced versions could even collect all the information about the contents of a store in an instant, letting a retailer know where every package is at any time.

GPS Tracking and Anti theft Dog Collar

dog gps

If you think your dog is special then so do we. Over three years of research and development we have designed a product that outperforms every other tracking product in this sector.

If you have ever wondered why:

  • most other dog trackers are only shower proof rather than waterproof (strange, but true)
  • or why they hang limply beneath your dog’s head and away from the necessary GPS signal
  • or only last a day before needing to be recharged (assuming you remember)
  • or may not send location data straight to your mobile phone
  • or it won’t create safe areas whenever you want without having to find a computer first
  • or be easily removed and discarded by anyone with a mind to do it

…then so were we. Then we realised that other people were just trying to sell technology and didn’t understand the real problems faced by dog owners.

So we decided to look at the problem from the perspective of the dog and its owner and the outcome was the Retrieva GPS tracking and anti-theft collar. It is carefully designed, practical, lockable, and waterproof and will find your dog for you as well as protect it from the risk of theft. It is not just an ugly tracking box with no energy and very few tricks.

The Retrieva™ collar can send your dog’s location straight to the palm of your hand and plot itself on digitally enhanced topographical mapping (available for most phones) or Google maps, report to computers armed with satellite mapping, talk to friends and family, or in fact communicate virtually anywhere you like.

It will not only tell you where your dog is but even let you know if your dog decides to leave home and take an unscheduled walk. And because having to recharge something every day is impractical and most likely to be forgotten when you need it the most, our collar is designed with a power management system that extends the intervals between recharging to a likely to 5-7 days in normal use.

Finally, the collar is very difficult to remove by someone not authorised to do so, and if an attempt is made it has enough sense to tell you about it. And because we know that your dog needs you as much as you need them we have designed a personal panic button on to the buckle. So should you ever feel lost, hurt or threatened whilst out walking your dog you know that friends and family can quickly find you both.

Martin Jetpack Flying Machine

jetpack flying

Watch Video

Well, by both common usage and science it is a jet. We already have jet ski and jet boat. I do not believe that an aviation engineer will be able to convince all those owners to start calling their devices a ‘water pump propelled boats’.

In the end we found that 95% plus of people call it a jetpack when they see it, so why fight that ?

If you have a very narrow view of what a ‘true jetpack’ is (i.e. that it is a pure jet) then none have ever been built. The closest would have been the Bell jet belt, but again this was not a ‘true jet’, it was bypass ratio gas turbine powered. In fact I cannot think of any ‘true jets’ in the GA industry, most are Fanjets.

Perhaps now you see that the ‘correct answer’ is far more complicated and debatable, so much so that normally it is not worth even starting the discussion, because the ‘correct’ answer relates to opinion not fact.

Augmented Identity App Helps You Identify Strangers on the Street

By this point, we’re all familiar with augmented reality, but Swedish mobile software firm The Astonishing Tribe is taking information overload to the next logical step: augmented identity. Mashing up face recognition technology, computer vision, cloud computing, and augmented reality with the complex digital lives many of us lead on the Internet, TAT has created an app that allows you to gather information on a person and their social networking life simply by pointing your camera phone at their face.

Dubbed Recognizr, the app essentially works like this: the user points the camera at a person across the room. Face recognition software creates a 3-D model of the person’s mug and sends it across a server where it’s matched with an identity in the database. A cloud server conducts the facial recognition since and sends back the subject’s name as well as links to any social networking sites the person has provided access to.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use HAL for wireless surround sound?
In order to use HAL to send surround sound information to your rear speakers, you will still need to use either an additional amplifier or a powered speaker. HAL can easily send a stereo signal wirelessly, but it is not an amplifier.

How can I increase the HAL wireless range?
HAL has a tested line-of-sight range of over 140 feet with no obstacles between the HAL Send and Receive units. Every wall, door, or other obstruction between the HAL Send and Receive units can affect the wireless range. For optimal performance it is recommended that the HAL Send or Receive units are clear of close obstructions such as stacks of CDs or books.
