Weather-Resistant Outdoor HD Television 46″ in

tv weather proof

This is the high-definition television suitable for permanent installation and use outdoors. The television’s internal components are integrated into an all-weather exterior that repels rain, dirt, insects, and harsh outdoor conditions. Unlike common televisions that lose picture quality due to glare, this television has a 46″ active-matrix TFT screen with an anti-reflective window that provides indoor-quality viewing outdoors in shaded daylight. Capable of 1080i HD performance, the high-resolution screen generates an 1,920 x 1,080 pixel image with a sharp 1,500:1 contrast ratio, and is protected by a scratch-resistant, contrast-enhancing window. A quad-airflow system ensures the television stays cool, dry, and properly ventilated–even up to 122º F. A watertight entry system keeps cables dry, allowing you to connect the television to cable, a satellite dish, a DVD/BluRay player, and an antenna. The internal thermostat-controlled heater maintains proper temperature even in weather as cold as 24º F. Two 10-watt water-resistant speakers provide clear stereo sound. Includes a weather-resistant remote with rechargeable batteries, an articulating wall mount, and an outdoor dust cover.

Canine Shower Stall

pet shower

This dog shower has 16 water-jet nozzles and a showerhead that wash and rinse your canine in an enclosed space. The jet nozzles produce vigorous streams of water that penetrate even the thickest coats to clean pet hair and remove dead skin cells. A handheld, adjustable-flow showerhead has a 38″ hose that allows you to easily wash and rinse the paws, underbody, and other hard-to-reach areas. Two integrated leashes gently restrain pets and dual locking doors keep dogs confined. The shower’s 31″-high walls and a partial, clear plastic roof help keep water inside the shower (and off of you) yet allow access to the dog. The spa connects to a spigot or faucet using the included adapters and a garden hose or a 1/2″ braided metal hose. A 2′-long flexible drainpipe channels used water out of the shower. The shower has two locking casters, the 9 1/2′ cu. interior accommodates dogs up to 200 lbs., and a removable shelf elevates small canines.

Illuminating Reading Glasses

lighted reading glass

These are the reading glasses that clearly illuminate subjects immediately in front of you while keeping the surrounding area in darkness. With built-in LEDs in the upper corners of the lens frame, they are ideal for reading in bed without disturbing a sleeping partner, repairing a fuse during a power outage, or examining a map in the car without inconveniencing the driver. Each of the glasses’s two LEDs provide 16 lumens and are angled inward, creating two efficient, overlapping cones of light, providing 4X the light of lesser models. Four CR1632 batteries that fit into the frame provide up to 50 hours of illumination. The optical quality frames are made of plastic; high-quality refractive lenses are available in three different strengths (+1.5, +2.0, +2.5). Not available for shipment to New York. Includes protective patent leather case with felt lining: 6 1/2″ L x 2″ W. (4 oz.)

Flying Alarm Clock

flying alarm clock

My, how time flies…ugh. I can’t believe I just said that…

It’s not that we’ve gotten lazy as a species, far from it! We’re more productive now than we’ve ever been, but with more and more work to do, we have to create time by cutting down on late night raids on Molten Core, ordering fast-food, talking on the phone while driving… The only time we have left is spent sleeping. Now you have to stay up late and get up early in an effort to get more done.

Waking up after a pitiful five hours of sleep has its own challenges, though. At ThinkGeek, we’re always looking for new ways to haul your lazy butt out of bed. Normal alarm clocks wake you up with loud noises to jar you into wakefulness, however we’ve become accustomed to the snooze-bar… Now, it’s become muscular instinct to flail your hands roughly in the direction of the noise, and smack! Nine more minutes of blissful unconsciousness. No more.

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 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!
