Fret Zeppelin System Teaches You How To Play A Real Guitar

Learning how to play any instrument is hard, but luckily we are now starting to see products like the Fret Zeppelin, which should go a long way to make things a bit easier, at least for guitars. It’s a set of thin LED strips that fit right next to each fret on a guitar’s neck, and light up the spots where your fingers need to be, guiding you through the song. The app detects when you’ve played the note, and moves on to the next position as you play. Each strip is about half the height of a fret, so it won’t interfere with your playing ability. And once you’ve mastered a song, you can enable a multicoloured light show, giving you a bunch of “extra flair” as you play. It’s a fantastic idea and if done properly, will totally be worth the $199 pledge necessary to secure your October 2017 shipping date.

Tesla Model S 100D Focuses On Range, Not Power

The new Tesla Model S 100D has the same capacity battery as the better known P 100D (100kWh), but instead of being able to propel you through a 0-60 sprint in a ludicrous 2.4s, it does it in a still ridiculously fast 4.2s, faster than a base model Porsche 911. What you trade off for the loss of power is extra range: the S 100D can go a full 335 miles on a single charge. That’s more than any EV on the road, and should go a long way to satisfy even the most intrepid commuter. The best part is that you’ll save a whopping $39,500 over the P 100D, which might make you rethink why you needed to get to 60 in under three seconds anyway.

Keeping The Girlfriend Happy With The Beard Bib

A good beard needs regular grooming, otherwise you’re just a bum. But grooming means turning your bathroom sink into a mess that your girlfriend will eventually have to deal with, because even though you try to clean up after yourself it’s well known you’ll miss like 15% of the little hairs. Yes, this is a sexist statement, but please don’t take it the wrong way, we’re just trying to be funny. Anyway, the Beard Bib should keep things nice and tidy. It ties to your neck and to your bathroom mirror through two suction cups; anything you shave or trim will be caught and kept off your nice surfaces. It’s $30.

The Importance of Uninterrupted Power for Data Centers

Thanks to the cloud, we have seen a sharp increase in data centers and radical shifts in how they operate. There are more software-as-a-service products in circulation than ever and they are driving the necessity of data centers, where precious user information is stored and accessed by users and personnel around the globe. Access to reliable and uninterrupted power is absolutely essential for these data centers to carry out day-to-day operations. However, despite the need, many data centers have back-up power systems that are less than desirable.

For data centers, a power outage not only hinders everyday operation, it is extremely detrimental for their bottom lines. According to a survey from the Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council, 20 percent of respondents “experienced data center outages that caused more than $50,000 in losses, all the way up to $5,000,000.” For a data center, it doesn’t really matter what the cause was, a power outage is the number one source of preventable income loss.

This post is going to discuss the importance of uninterrupted power for data centers and offering several solutions to help approve your approach to backup power.

So You Want to Build a Smart Garage? Start With These Gadgets.

Smart Garage

Not all people who want to start making their houses smart remember to include their garage. But you, you’re smart to know that your garage is one of the weakest spots in your home. Your garage door is probably the most-used door to your house. It’s just fitting to secure it too, along with your front door.

So, let’s start? Here are the recommended gadgets that you should have when making your garage smart.

Garage Door Controllers

This is the obvious must-have. Garage door controllers like the Chamberlain MyQ System let you control and monitor your garage door from your smartphone. It’s pretty nifty, especially if you’re the type who always seem to forget whether you have left your garage door open or not. You don’t need to drive all the way back home, just take your phone out and check.

Automated Lighting Systems

Your garage door may automatically open up and let you in when you arrive, but how can you park safely when it’s dark in there? Make sure you follow up by installing smart lighting fixtures in your garage. The popular choice is always Philips Hue bulbs; they’re super powerful too. But, there are cheaper alternatives which function just fine like the Ashia Light which is equipped with motion sensors.

Smart Tools

Your garage is also the home of your big tools, right? If you want to multitask and avoid wasting time by looking for a misplaced tool, you can invest in smart tools like Black and Decker’s drill. You can use your phone to locate it, lock or unlock it, and operate it. It even has a port which can charge up your phone.

These are just a few of the recommended gadgets that we think are worthy to sit in your smart garage. We actually have a lot more. Check them out below.
