Deal Of The Day: 40% Off On Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar

jamstik-1

Any budding guitarist (or anyone learning a new skill) will tell you that practice makes perfect, but that can be hard to do sometimes, especially when it involves lugging around a large instrument. The Jamstik Wireless Smart Guitar makes it possible to keep those fingers strumming, fingerpicking, bending, and sliding without having to carry a full instrument with you.

Apply vibrato, bend a string, fingerpick—Jamstik feels and performs like a normal guitar, but also conveniently connects with all the Apple music apps and software you could ever need. Jamstik is perfect for all-level guitarists, and is ultra-portable to seamlessly fit your lifestyle.

“The Jamstik is cool-as-hell… Turn your iPad into a real instrument,” John Brownlee, Cultofmac.com

– Easy to set up
– No tuning required
– Extremely portable
– Includes quality teaching software
– Contains full MIDI controller functionality
– Allows you to see your hands in action w/ infrared light technology
– Includes D-pad control for changing octaves or swapping sounds
– Play without disturbing others, ultra quiet with headphones

It’s a really cool instrument/learning aid, and one that would fully justify its regular $250 asking price. At $149.99 however, it’s a steal. And of course, as usual, it’s shipped for free.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Terrascout Drone Blaster Ups The Cubicle Wars Ante

nerf-drone

You may think Nerf toys are for kids, but then you’d be ignoring the hordes of bored cubicle dwellers who ‘increase their productivity’ by partaking in the occasional bout of friendly office warfare. If you’re lucky enough to work in such an environment (or if you’re actually a kid), you’ll love the Nerf N-Strike Elite Terrascout Drone Blaster. It’s a remote controlled tank that fires up to 18 darts per load, but more importantly, it’s also a tank that sends a live-feed of what’s in front of it to its remote control. This way you don’t have to have line-of-sight on your machine, making it possible to annihilate your enemies from the safety of whatever hiding place you pick. You’ll even be able to take 720p still shots, so you can record the horrified faces of your foes as they realize they’re about to get shot.

It’s $200 and available this fall.

Also if you do have kids, maybe keep them off the Internet for a year or so… or prepare to punch a $200 hole in your wallet.

Too Much Information: Toothbrush Live-streams The Inside Of Your Mouth

2016prophixonvi-2-edJT

Because apparently we lack the ability to keep track of where exactly our toothbrush is doing its job, a company called Onvi has created the Prophix, a ‘smart toothbrush’ that packs a 1080p camera (and a small light) with the ability to send its footage in real-time to your smartphone. In this way you’ll apparently be able to get a definitely non-disturbing view of the inside of your mouth, with all the specks of food and tartar you may have missed while performing a regular, non-techy brushing. If you’re able to stomach the sight of such an activity, perhaps you’ll choke on the asking price instead: $400. That’s right, for the price of two perfectly capable Oral-B brushes, you’ll get one that does pretty much the exact same thing, with the addition of a dubious-use camera and a few attachments. It ships in Q1 2017 and if you pre-order now, you’ll save $100 on retail.

It’s The Donutception, A Donut On Donut On Donut Donut

inception-donut

It seems that it was National Donut Day last Friday, and to celebrate this, The Cinnamon Snail in New York City created the above. It’s a donut that uses donut-shaped cookies as decoration, cookies which in turn are decorated with Cheerio’s like rings that are meant to look like donuts themselves. It’s a donut party three levels deep, a party so intense the bakery felt it appropriate to charge $7 for its consumption. For reference, that’s about seven times more than anyone should feel entitled to charge for a ring of sugary dough, but what do we know.

Are they still selling it? Did anyone even buy it? Seeing as we like to report news a few days late, we’ll never really know.

OhGizmo! Review: The G Pen Elite Vaporizer

Elite2

Today we’re going to take a look at the G Pen Elite, a new portable vaporizer made by Grenco Science. The G Pen line of vaporizers is well known among a wide range of people for reasons ranging from their sleek designs to high-profile partnerships with celebrities like Snoop Dogg. However, one thing Grenco hasn’t been known for is creating vaporizers that succeed in true vaporization of dried material.

If you aren’t expecting much from a Grenco produced vaporizer, then you’ll probably be very surprised if you get the chance to try the Elite. This small and elegantly designed vape really blew us away in terms of overall quality compared to our expectations, especially given the price.

There certainly are a few downsides, but overall this is a vaporizer that we expect to be very popular. Let’s take a look at the materials and design that went into this vape, then we’ll go over how it performed when put to the test.
