Toolbox Fridge Looks Right At Home In Your Garage

toolbox_fridge_1

Your garage is like your second home. It’s where you work on your car, and where you go to get away from it all. It’s your sanctuary and you’ve spent a fortune buying only the best tool boxes and tools. You could fit a regular fridge in there for refreshments and such… but why not just go with the Versional Portable Garage Toolbox? It’s a small fridge that looks just like one of your toolboxes, but features a cooling compartment large enough to fit a bunch of stuff. There’s even three drawers up top, so it’s not completely just a gimmick. It’s painted the same kind of red or blue that many of the most popular toolboxes are painted, so you can sneak a beer or five on the sly without the spouse ever knowing a thing. Not that you should have to hide your drinking habits from your significant others, but hey, that’s marriage sometimes. What’re you gonna do?

It’s $400 and measures 17″W x 18 3/4″D x 31 11/16″H.

3M’s ePrivacy Filter Software Will Keep Your Private Things Private

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 3M for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

You’re an exemplary employee, handing in your reports on time, showing up to all the meetings and contributing to your company’s smooth running just as much as the next guy.  But you’re also a human being with normal distractions, and desires to look at a few non-work-related things on your computer now and then.  Nothing wrong with that, especially if you’re productive to start with; your private life is your business and should remain yours.  3M already makes a Privacy Filter film that limits the viewing angle on your computer screen, so that only you can see what’s going on and not those to the sides.  And now they’re introducing ePrivacy Filter Software that further enhances what the filter does.

 photo ScreenShot2014-10-21at95714AM_zpsb2eb4d87.png

Using your PC’s webcam, the new software uses facial recognition technology to detect when you’re looking at the screen, automatically blurring everything when you walk away from your desk.  Even more impressively, it can detect when someone other than you is creeping up behind you and alerts you with an on-screen pop-up!  If you’re reading an important personal email, you don’t want Silent Jim to hover behind your shoulder and read it too!  With the 3M ePrivacy Software and the 3M Privacy Filter, you’ll have true 180 degree protection from unwanted intrusions in your private life.

It’s PC only at the moment, and there are some system requirements as well as the need for a webcam.  You can Learn more about 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software, as well as try it out for free: Download a 30-day free trial of 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software.

Your MacBook, especially if it’s an Air, has fairly limited storage.

It fits right into your MacBook’s SD card slot, and contains a MicroSD card of any capacity. It accepts any microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC (including 128GB) memory card, and has a brushed Aluminum finish for a perfect, flush appearance.

Blown Glass Solar System Christmas Tree Ornament Set

planet-christmas-tree-ornaments

Last time we spoke of planetary glassware, it was for the Solar System Glass Set and you guys seemed to love it. Well today you’re looking at a set of blown glass tree ornaments featuring 9 planets and the Sun. Yes, 9 planets, which means Pluto once again made it! But as cool as this set is, there’s some bad news. First off, it’ll take 3 to 5 weeks to ship, which means you probably can’t get it in time for Christmas. And on top of that, the thing is $375! So yeah, that’s out of budget for most people.

Still, if you’ve got too much disposable income and like to plan things way, way, way ahead of time, you can always get these for next year.

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 1.01.32 PM

See what we did there?

No?

Ok, we’ll show ourselves out.

Before we go, just know that this is a cool chair by Duffy London that can be used in two positions, depending on which side you want it to stand up on. It’s handmade in London with “wood from Forest Stewardship Council managed forests and other controlled sources.” And it costs £1,500, which is about $2,346USD.

Carbon Flyer Is The Coolest RC Toy Plane Ever

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 12.52.02 PM

You’re looking at a remote controlled toy plane made out of carbon fiber, which you can steer with your smartphone. The carbon fiber construction means it’s tough and durable, and will withstand crashing into buildings and things repeatedly without taking on damage. The wings are even glued on to the body using super tough “carbon nanotube enhanced epoxy which creates bonds stronger than steel welds.” The long range Bluetooth module gives you a 240ft. range, and about 3 minutes of flight time. That may not seem like much, but the batteries are hot-swappable, so a pocketful of these and you can fly all evening. Dual high power motors with differential thrust take care of steering, and do away with fragile moving parts. But perhaps most impressively, the Flyers are outfitted with a camera! It’s only 640×480, but that’s still better than 0x0.

A $99 pledge will get you a Carbon Flyer, with a slated delivery date of August 2015.

The Only Thing That’s Better Than Receiving This Holiday Season, Is Giving

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Capital One for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last time I brought up CapitalOne’s #WishForOthers campaign, I tried to make a case for why my lifelong friend JS was a good candidate for receiving my #WishForOthers this Holiday season. Wish For OthersThe truth of the matter is, CapitalOne wants to bring awareness to the simple fact that as much fun as it is to receive stuff during this time of year, nothing can replace the warm and fuzzies you get when you give something to some other deserving soul instead.  That’s why they’ve launched the Wish For Others campaign; it’s an opportunity for readers to share their wish for someone else, and where they stand a chance of having these wishes fulfilled.

The fact is we all have someone in our lives that can either benefit from having you give them something, or even from just learning about the spirit of giving.  Children look up to their parents for behavioral cues, and everything they learn in infancy they will carry with them into adulthood.  One way to foster this spirit is to invite your kids to make lists of what they’d like their siblings to receive, rather than drawing up a Santa’s Letter asking for stuff for themselves.  If you don’t have kids, you can still find worthy candidates in your life if you look hard enough: what about a member of the armed forces?  A struggling small business owner who could use a little care and compassion? That neighbor who was nice enough to lend you his lawnmower when yours broke down?

Whatever it is, we encourage you to enter the campaign and share your wish for others, this Holiday season; they just might come true! You can do so by tagging @CapitalOne on Twitter, or by visiting their Facebook page or Wish For Others website.

Deal Of The Day: 52% Off On AViiQ Concert Series Tangle-Free Earphones

redesign_20945999136559.9PJ5cOaW2ayppMSFEA5C_height640

You’re looking at a set of cool headphones that feature a tangle-free flat-cord design for $17. The AViiQ Concert Series Tangle-Free Earphones are normally $36, so they’re not some cheap brand. As a matter of fact, the specs on these look quite decent, with a finely-tuned 9.2mm Dynamic Driver, up to 20db noise isolation, and a built-in mic and remote for easy switching. That’s a lot of stuff for a pair of earbuds that cost as much as two fancy Starbucks drinks.

Bondic™ is The World’s First Liquid Plastic Welder

bondic

This is a seriously cool product. It’s a stick that contains a special resin that remains liquid until you zap it with the included ultraviolet light. When that happens, it hardens within 4 seconds. In other words, Bondic allows you to play around with your broken stuff right up until the moment you need it to harden. No more stressing out that your glue is going to harden before you’ve had time to place things in the shape you want, simply because Bondic is not glue: if you don’t zap it with the UV light, it won’t harden, period.

It’s $22 for a stick, and $12 for a refill cartridge.
