Foodsniffer Tells You If Your Meat Has Gone Bad

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-7-25-57-am

How many times have you pulled out a three day old uncooked steak from the fridge and stuck it right up your nose, wondering if it’s still good to cook. Or taken a hearty whiff from that tuna steak in the hopes it hasn’t gone bad. It’s not always easy to be sure and I’ve found myself asking others for their opinion before taking a chance on some potentially bad meat. Well with the Foodsniffer, a handheld connected smart device, I wouldn’t have to ask anyone at all. I’d simply connect it to my smartphone, prop it up right against the meat and take a measurement of the gases emanating from it. In seconds I’d be able to know if it’s safe to ingest or if it gets tossed. No taking chances, no second guessing, and no botulism! It’s $89.

Deal Of The Day: 37% Off On Dewang X4 Low Temperature 3D Printer Pen

dewang-1

3D printer pens are cool because you can draw a 3D object in the air, with your hand. They work by heating up and melting a plastic filament, which almost instantly hardens as it exits the pen. The Dewang X4 Low Temperature 3D Printer Pen has a temperature control setting, which would give you greeted control over your creations.

3D printing represents an exciting new frontier in many fields, from architecture to healthcare, and its uses are only growing. While a full-fledged 3D printer will set you back some thousands of dollars, these fun, productive pens allow you to create objects from nothing, simply by drawing.

– Change the temperature & control the speed of drawing w/ 3 easy to switch options
– Create objects out of thin air in a safe environment
– Draw on hands or bodies without worrying that the temperature is too hot

Normally $159, the Dewang X4 is $99 with today’s deal, shipped for free.

Plush Tardigrades Will Teach Your Kids About Nature’s Strangest Creature

tardigrade-plushie-1

Tardigrades are fascinating microscopic creatures with some properties that baffle most scientists. Also known as ‘water bears’, “they can survive temperatures ranging from near absolute zero (?458 °F) up to 300 °F, withstand pressures 6 times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches or radiation hundreds of times higher than what’s lethal for humans, and even survive in the vacuum of outer space. They can also survive without food and water for over 30 years.” They even survive the vacuum of space. So it sort of makes sense that a creature as cool as these would be made into a plushie, because once you give it to your kid they’ll inevitably ask what the heck it is and you’ll have an opportunity to educate them on a bunch of sciencey topics. They’re as anatomically correct as can be, albeit 1,000 larger than their real life counterparts. They cost 4,104 Yen, or roughly $36USD.

Rear Window Stickers Are Meant To Creep Out High Beam Abusers

high-beam-stickers-2

The joys of driving include an almost endless stream of irritating things other drivers do on the road. One of the most annoying of all is getting blinded by some idiot with his high beams on, driving behind you for miles. One way to deal with this issue is to get these rear window stickers which feature some questionably creepy faces visible mostly only to those whose high beams are on. The reflective paint on them isn’t quite as bright as when it’s being hit with a strong headlight, so they’ll go mostly unnoticed by other, non-headlight abusing motorists. They come in all kinds of flavours and cost anywhere from $3 to $12, but you will have to navigate a chinese website, and we’re not even sure if they’ll ship stateside.

Wearable Sleeping Bags Come In Star Wars Fashions

star-wars-wearable-sleeping-bags

Selk’Bags, the sleeping bags that you wear like a bodysuit, have been around for a long time. We wrote about them in 2006 and even reviewed one in 2011. Fast forward to today, and we find the company trying to expand its appeal by releasing some Star Wars themed suits, and we’re loving it. You can now get a Selk’bag in Chewbacca, Buzz Lightyear, Radiation Suit and Darth Vader flavours. Notice the two non-Star Wars items there? Neither did we, because who the heck cares, amirite?

Everything else is the same as a regular Selk’bag and has the following features:

– Removable booties allow you to wear your own shoes, or keep them on for warm sleeping; booties are reinforced with durable nylon
– Elastic no-hassle hand openings allow you to bring your hands in and out of the bag quickly and effortlessly
– Single Ezip for a quick entry and dual zipper pulls for easy pocket access
– A soft polyester shell with DWR (durable water resistant) finish is both comfortable and water-resistant
– An insulated hood for added warmth
– Draft tubes prevent heat loss around the zippers
– Wide zipper tape prevents snags when opening or closing
– A convenient carry sack for compact portability

They’ll set you back $109 and also come in children’s sizes for $89.

10 Ways An MBA Can Help Entrepreneurs

Print

It is absolutely true that entrepreneurship can’t be taught to someone, but there are few courses which can help budding entrepreneurs to take their start-ups a level higher, and an MBA is particularly one of them. Magnates like Elon Musk and Michael Bloomberg also completed an MBA degree before they started their journey as entrepreneurs.

A range of benefits are derived from a Master of Business Administration course, especially if you are going to embark on an entrepreneurial journey for the first time. An MBA helps not only with the theoretical wisdom, but you will also learn to build professional relationships and earn the honor of studying at a reputed educational institution.

A Swan Ladle Is The Best Kind Of Ladle

swanky-2

You guys might remember the furiously popular Nessie Ladle from back in 2015. It was so popular, it spawned spinoff products like the Nessie Tea Infuser and the Mama Nessie Colander. While cool, all these products were based off the “Loch Ness Monster” concept but now the designers, Ototo, are back with a new twist. It’s called The Swanky and its claim to fame is that it floats on top of your soup pot. So the same ladle with which you’ll scoop out soup with will also float on top of it, looking graceful and elegant and somewhat reminiscent of a swan. It’s kind of cool, though we’re not sure it has the same appeal as the Nessie line of products. Still, the Kickstarter is fully funded and a $17 pledge will get you your own, so there’s definitely some interest out there.
