The 14 Day Lantern – 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries

lantern 14 days

The 14 Day Lantern.

This is the lantern that provides 14 days of continuous light on four D batteries. The lantern’s LEDs use a fraction of the energy of traditional bulbs, allowing them to produce 160 lumens of bright light for 336 consecutive hours on the lowest setting (175 hours on high). Its cylindrical design provides 360º of unimpeded illumination, and the bulbs produce almost no heat, making the lantern safe for children and uninteresting to insects. The lantern has a durable waterproof case and it will remain buoyant and operational if dropped in water. An integrated handle ensures ease of portability and can also be used to hang the lantern for hands-free lighting. Requires four D batteries.

Magic Wand – Programmable TV Remote

remote wand

Tame the Beast of HD Pictures with this magic device!

  • TV remote looks just like a wizard’s wand
  • 13 magical functions control your TV
  • Learns from your existing remotes

You know you have always wanted to be a wizard. But not one of those swish and flick wizards from the movies. You want to be the Dungeons & Dragons wizard – the party’s controller. See that word there? CONTROLLER. It means you control the battlefield; you control everything! Sure, you’re squishy and sometimes there’s collateral damage when you let out a blast, but it’s all in a day’s work. As a wizard, you have a choice in implements, but everyone knows The Wand is the ultimate when you want to be an elite controller.

Our Wand may not make legions of kobold minions explode into flames, but it will learn up to 13 commands from your existing remote controls and map them to particular magical motions. Flick the wand from side to side to flip the channels, twist the wand to turn up the volume. A beam of light will shoot out the unicorn tail hair and magic will happen! The Wand can learn from any remotes in your house and once you master its 13 movements, you can mastermind a symphony of electronic enjoyment from the comfort of your couch. Then, and only then, are you an epic level controller.

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.)

TV be gone – turn off any TV with this remote

tv be gone

Safe. Fun. Effective.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 250 million television sets in the U.S. and we can guess that the majority of them are turned on a lot of the time. All in all, this is not bad (heck, we enjoy a good movie as much as anyone else) but there are some occasions when you just need to do everyone a favor and turn the TV off. A certain portion of television content is just plain questionable and about as healthy as second-hand smoke.

Enter the TV-B-Gone, a small television remote that hangs on your keychain and turns off virtually any television with the press of button. “Now, what would be the purpose of such a device?” you may be asking yourself. Well, without revealing too much of our devious nature we can think of a few things. Imagine sports bars or annoying talking head shows that appear on monitors at the airport. Add to that your own creativity and we’re pretty sure you’ll come up with some ideas. All you need to do is press the button and keep pointing it at the TV until it turns off (which may take up to 69 seconds). The next 69 seconds will be spent quietly, or not so quietly, enjoying the perplexed expressions of the TV automatons.

The TV-B-Gone also has these great features.

  • Turns off (and on) virtually any television
  • Perfect for carrying on your keyring
  • May take up to 69 seconds for the television to turn off (90% of televisions should turn off within 17 seconds)
  • Range: 20 to 50 feet (7 to 17 m), depending on the make and model of the TV
  • Contains 209 turn-off codes
  • Regular Version works on TVs in US, Canada, Mexico, many Asian countries (European version also available!)
  • Lithium batteries included (last about 3 months to one year depending on usage)
  • Dimensions: 1.92″ x 2.27″ x .675″

Electronic Watchdog

electronic watchdog

Now you can have all the advantages of a 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week watch dog without the hassles of caring and feeding. Just like man’s best friend, our electronic version emits fiercely realistic barks whenever anyone approaches.

When an intruder is 15 ft. away, it barks intermittently and then barks louder and more frequently if the intruder draws closer. But unlike a real dog, it “sees” through doors and walls up to 25 ft. away with its remarkable radar.

You can adjust the distance and volume to your exact needs. And it has four versatile modes. For security, set it on barking or a combination of barking and 20 sec. siren. For other times, set it on the pleasant rainforest sound continuously or set it on the rainforest chime to announce invited guests.
