Bosch Laser Measure Lets You Get Rid Of The Tape Once And For All

bosh-laser-measure

When you’re in your backyard building things, you’re inevitably going to have to use your trusty measuring tape. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of using one, you’ll know what a pain in the rear end they can be. They’ll come unhooked, bend when you need them to stay straight, and snap back at you haphazardly. Sure, we sound like incompetent DIYers, but so are a great number of people who just want to build things, with limited experience. Bosch Tools has a line of laser measuring tools, the latest one of which is so small it could fit in a tight jean pocket. It’s the GLM 15, and can measure things up to 50ft. away with 1/8 inch precision. What’s more, it’s only $50, which is very little money to save you the kind of hassle a regular tape can give.

Arby’s Has An Off-The-Menu ‘Meat Mountain’ Option

Meat-Mountain

A while ago, Arby’s got tired of people thinking they only serve roast beef. To fight that perception, they created the poster pictured below; it’s a gigantic creation featuring a sample of every type of meat served at the restaurants. It was only meant to be illustrative, but then of course customers started asking for the very sandwich on the picture. Can you blame them? Arby’s, loathe to turn down anyone’s money, accepted the challenge and started serving the ‘Meat Mountain’ to customers who’d specifically request it. It’s a $10 sandwich, and it’s not on the menu, but they’ll sell you one if you ask for it. And here’s what’s in it:

2 chicken tenders
1.5 oz. of roast turkey
1.5 oz. of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 oz. of corned beef
1.5 oz. brisket
1.5 oz. of Angus steak
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1.5 oz. roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon

Toymail

Being a working parent is hard. Aside from missing out on some of your kid’s firsts, it sucks not being able to hang out and bond with your offspring as much as you want to. You can, however, harness the power of modern technology and make them feel your presence one way or another, like with Toymail.

It’s a small, mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. The awesome part is that your child can send you messages, too, simply by hitting ‘reply.’

Leather Beer Caddy For Bikes

beer-caddy

Making a beer run in the middle of the party can get annoying, but not so with the Fyxation Leather Bicycle Carrier. Instead of stuffing that six-pack in your backpack or bringing it back (gasp!) in your hands, just put the beers in this cool-looking brown leather carrier. It’ll fit right beneath your top post, making it super convenient. Ok… we’re sure some of you will complain that you have to take the extra step to remove each beer from its box and individually insert it in this carrier. It’s true… but just look at it! If you don’t have a backpack, this is still the superior option.

But hey, if you’ve been drinking, maybe it’s better to walk after all? Cycling while intoxicating is no better than driving, so be safe.

The caddy will cost you $57, from Amazon.

LightMode Helmets Will Get You Noticed On The Road

lightmode-1

Motorcyclists have a bad reputation for attracting attention in all the wrong ways. But while a good portion of them do like to simply show off, getting noticed is also a matter of safety. Car drivers are used to look for other cars on the road, but motorcycles are smaller and easier to miss, especially at night. Increasing your visibility is never a bad thing, and these LightMode Electroluminescent light kits could not only help in that regard, but could do so stylishly. They’re light-up wires that connect into a small control module, which itself is wedged between the shell and the padding or glued on with 3M adhesives. You can order them as a kit and make your own design. Or if you don’t trust your skills, you can order a number of helmets pre-fitted with the wires. There are three mode selections: constant glow, blink and off. You can use regular AA batteries, but 2,000mAh rechargeables will reportedly squeeze 13 hours of operation before needing to be charged.

Currently on pre-order on Kickstarter, $72 will get you a kit, which comes in aqua, red, white, green, blue, yellow, and pink colours. The pre-installed helmets start at $295 for an HJC CL-Y Razz, and up to $770 for a Shoei RF-1200.

Das Can-In-Stein Is A Beer Stein For Your Cans

das_can_in_stein_1

If you’ve ever done anything Oktoberfest-related, you’ve probably become acquainted with a beer stein. The ornamental pewter mugs are a staple at any bavarian-themed festivity, but they’re a little cumbersome to carry around. They’re pretty expensive too, sometimes. The Das Can-In-Stein started out as a Thinkgeek April’s Fool joke, but like many of these, it turned into a real product. It’s a pewter-looking plastic container that accepts any 12oz. can of beer (or soda, of course) and turns into a rudimentary stein. Yeah, sure, it’s a novelty item and completely unnecessary. But at $10, it’s a cheap way to have a little fun. It’s also kind of awesome to say out loud. Try it!
