Deal Of The Day: 80% Off On Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens

The new iPhone 7 may have 2X optical magnification, but what about 8X? That’s how much you can get out of this Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens, although you’ll look a little silly in the process. But that’s fine, because it’s not like it’s supposed to stay on your phone at all times, it’s removable by simply clipping it on or off.

Your smartphone has some pretty amazing photography capabilities, but if there’s one area they all fall short, it’s in the zoom. The easily removable Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens changes that, allowing you to get clear images at up to 8 times closer, letting you capture those specific landscape details or the intricacies of a flower or small object. Pack it up for your next outdoor adventure and you’ll be thrilled with the results!

– Capture clear images up to 8 times closer without distortion
– Adjust the lens like you would a normal camera, just twisting it
– Clip on or remove the lens to your camera in seconds

Normally $89.95, it’s down to $17.99 with today’s deal, shipped for free.

This Duvet Cover Makes Itself

There’s now a duvet cover that can make itself at the touch of a button. Yes, that’s the kind of world we live in. The SmartDuvet is a $269 system that automagically straightens your duvet flat by inflating a lattice-shaped bladder at a preset time. The system connects to your smartphone and allows you to schedule when it does its thing, so that you can sleep in on Saturdays for example, but we imagine it can also inflate on demand. If it manages to fully fund, it should ship in May 2017.

The Foldscope Is A Legit Paper Microsope That Fits In Your Pocket

foldscope-1

There exists and entire world at the microscopic level that we never get to see outside of pictures in textbooks and online. But there’s something really cool about being able to check out the inside of a cell you just scraped off the walls of your own mouth, or being able to examine the bulb of a hair you just plucked out of your own head. With the Foldscope, not only can you do that, but you can then unfold it and pack right back into your pocket. It provides 140X magnification, which is enough for “imaging live individual cells, cellular organelles, embryos, swimming bacteria and much more.”

The Foldscope has been around for 5 years, but started out as a project to provide third world countries affordable access to scientific instruments. So the company “built, designed and shipped (free of any cost) 50,000 Foldscopes to kids (and teachers, home-school moms, classrooms, naturalists, gem collectors, bee-keepers, tribal kids, camel herders, space scientists, parasitologists, scrap-metal collectors.. you get the point) around the world in 130+ countries.” Now it’s your turn to own one, and you’ll only have to pledge $20 to do so. Know that this money will get you more than just the Foldscope, but an entire scientific kit including slides, Petri dishes, strainers, pipettes, tweezers… If you’ve got even a passing interest in science, this could kick it into high gear.

Scotch Infused Toothpicks

single-malt-scotch-toothpicks-xl

Toothpicks are, by definition, kind of gross. They’re the things you use to pick your teeth with, for crying out loud. But gross as they may be, it turns out they can also be kind of fun… for the person using them at least. See, the Single Malt Scotch Toothpicks you see above have been infused with delicious whisky.

These Single Malt Scotch Toothpicks are made with an Islay single malt from a 200-year-old distillery and are kiln dried. As you let one sit in your mouth, the subtle peaty and boozy flavors will start to come through and remind you of a relaxing night with a splash of the good stuff. Whether you need to clean your chops after a rack of ribs, or you just want to enjoy the fine flavors packed in each toothpick, carrying a pack is highly recommended for any scotch lover.

With Christmas just around the corner, these would make wonderful stocking stuffers. It’s $7 for a pack of “at least 12”.

Chronos 1.4, High Speed Photography On A Budget

chronos-1-4-high-speed-camera

It’s pretty likely you’ve seen high speed videos before. There are entire YouTube channels built around the technology (like the Slow Mo Guys), and watching these is always fascinating. But of course, making a video like that requires very expensive cameras that easily cost in the five and six figure range. If you’d like to get in on the action but don’t have the Hollywood budget, we’d like to turn your attention to the Chronos 1.4. It’s able to record up to 21,649fps, albeit at 640 X 96 resolution. Alternatively, it can shoot in full 1,280 X 1,024 resolution at 1,057fps. As a matter of fact, it’s called Chronos 1.4 for its maximum data throughput of 1.4 gigapixel per second, meaning that you can trade resolution for speed on a sliding scale while keeping the throughput constant at 1.4 Gpx/s. It looks and works like a normal camera in almost every other respect, compact enough for you to carry around in a small bag, and ready to shoot in an instant. It’s more features that we can possibly list on this article, so we suggest you visit their Kickstarter, where you can also sign up to get one when they become available. Prices start at $2,799, which is about 1/10th the price of a similar camera from the current players in this field.
