Krispy Kreme Flavored Jelly Beans Are Probably Not For The Health Conscious

If you’ve ever dumped an entire pack of jelly beans down your food-hole and were worried it might still be tiny bit healthy, than don’t worry, Jelly Belly has teamed up with Krispy Kreme to bring an assortment of 5 flavors which taste like different donuts, each one guaranteed to make your doctor to cry out in agony.

The flavors include Original Glazed, Cinnamon Apple Filled, Strawberry Iced, Glazed Blueberry Cake and Chocolate Iced with Sprinkles. Here’s a joke: Why don’t they make jelly beans that taste like healthy foods? Because eating healthy foods is miserable. Sorry, that’s more of a fact.

Anyway, you can buy a box for $7, which sounds like a good deal, but be aware that each Krispy Kreme flavored jelly bean that you eat removes 45 min off of your life expectancy. So each bag is actually costing around 3 days, still not as bad as Oreo Churros though.

Embr Wave Is A Wearable That Helps You Cool Off or Warm Up

The Embr Wave is a small wrist wearable that allows you to adjust what temperature you want your body to feel like. While the Wave seems to only have immediate effect on the skin it is touching, the company says that the cooling or warming sensation moves through your body, like how wet socks make you feel cold, or drinking hot cocoa warms you up.

They compare it to the feeling of a small icepack or a heatpad, but I’m a little more skeptical. Call me a cynic, but I’m just not sure how much relief a tiny wrist mounted heatsink does in a hot environment. It’s also pretty gimmicky, I mean most situations have a simple solution: Hot day? Drink cold water. Cold day? Bundle up. Really cold day? Bundle up more.

And at $220, it’s kind of a pricey gimmick. I love cool tech, and I really want to like this, but I don’t see much value.

Looks neat though.

You Can Now Rent A Jet By The Hour To Look Rich On Instagram

If you ever wanted people to be incredibly envious of your life you could always make good friends, have a rewarding career, live a healthy lifestyle and keep good relationships with loved ones. For everyone else, you can now rent a jet to trick people into thinking you’re rich. Yep, that’ll do it.

Private Jet Studio, a company based in Moscow, does as the name suggests and lets customers rent a Gulfstream 650 for 2 hours at the low price of $244, which includes a professional photographer, because of course it does. You can then post those pictures online and show everyone that you have $244 and no shame a private jet.

Renting a private jet to convince strangers online that you are rich is the most 2017 story I think I’ve ever read. Soon we’ll have models quoting prices to be in pictures as your photogenic friend, and one day you’ll even be able to hire tech writers to write your Tinder bio.

My rates start at $19 plus $.10 a word and $4 for an up-to-date pop culture reference that’ll have people think you’re quirky. That’s the Lynx Effect.

Microsoft Is Bringing Back The Iconic IntelliMouse

The original IntelliMouse revolutionized the industry of input devices being the first to feature a scroll wheel, optical sensor and later introducing one of the first ergonomic designs, as well as side buttons. It was truly ahead of its time and refined computer mice. Later, the mouse fell out of the market, taken over mostly by the likes of Logitech, and has been discontinued for 5 years, until now.

Microsoft is resurrecting the mouse with the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0. The design picks up mostly where it left off, but adds a slick new dark finish (which looks a lot nicer than eggshell white), while also adding new features, such as 3 customizable buttons and Microsoft BlueTrack for use on glass.

It’s not the most exciting product I’ve seen, and it’s not much for gamers, but for most people the IntelliMouse is perfect. Comfortable and iconic design and high DPI range in an incredibly high quality package. If this mouse works well, it could be the best option for 90% of computer users. Hey, anything beats the Microsoft Arc (ugh, even the name makes me sick).

It’s listed on Microsoft’s product page at $40, and should be coming very soon.

Let me know if you’d like to see a review when the mouse comes out.

CozyPhones Have Flat Speakers So You Can Use Them When Laying in Bed

Have you ever tried popping in some headphones to listen to some music or a podcast when laying in bed? If so, you may have realized how super uncomfortable it is. Regardless of what type of headphones you use, the hard plastic housing gets jammed into your ear canal making them painful to wear.

Well, one company is trying to change that with headphones that have super thin speakers held in place by a mesh headband. The mesh ensure that no plastic parts will try and impale you and the headband design keeps the headphones in place, even when you’re tossing and turning.

Sometimes I just like to shut my eyes and listen to a podcast without using giant studio monitors. Do they look cool? No. Do they have the best sound? Probably not. But these fit a very specific purpose, and at $22, you can’t really go wrong. They’re like the Crocs of headphones.

Finally, I can fall asleep listening to Slayer.

Razer Made A Webcam With A Ring Light For Streamers

Razer knows there’s big potential in catering to streamers. Those with the largest audiences list their gaming setup and many of their fans will go out and buy the same gear as their favorite streamers. And while Razer already has some of the best peripherals, like gaming mice and mechanical keyboards, they’ve fallen short on other products such as quality microphones.

Now, they’ve hoping to change that with two new products, the Siren X, a zero-latency USB microphone built to dampen vibrations, and the Kiyo, a 1080p webcam with a ring of 12 LED’s for much better selfie lighting. The brightness of the lights can even be changed between 12 different levels.

I just love ring lights, they add so much to an image with so little effort, and the Kiyo could be a great camera for streamers who travel, because they’ll always have that great lighting. Both the Kyio and Siren X are $99 and are available now through Razer.

I guess the Kyio could also be used for porn streamers, just saying.

Exploring the Top Benefits of Tech Gadgets for Education

Whether you are looking for the best Bluetooth earbuds to listen to the latest lecture that you recorded or you simply need a more sophisticated calculator, you know that certain gadgets are imperative to streamlining the education process. Learning more about how certain gadgets can benefit you when you are learning will help you to make sure that you have the ones that you need to get the most out of the material that you are studying.

 

Study When It is Convenient for You

 

Certain tech gadgets make it easier for you to study on the go, or at least review lectures and the basic material. For example, if you have the best Bluetooth earbuds handy, you can listen to lectures while you are commuting to school or when you are waiting for an appointment. You can also utilize a flashcard app on your smartphone and create flashcards that include the pertinent information that you are learning in your classes. Both of these make it easier to review the material more often so that you can master it.

This Ironic Version of Fahrenheit 451 Can Only Be Read When Burned

 

Fahrenheit 451 is considered a modern masterpiece of literature. It’s a story about a dystopian future where books are made illegal and are burned en masse. It was a near revolutionary tale that has shaped the way we think about privacy today (and it was written back when not every novel was about a dystopian future).

Well in an ironic twist, French Publisher, Super Terrain, is making a version of the book with black pages that only reveal themselves when the special ink has been burned off with extreme heat. Though it’s not going to hold up to being burned in large bonfires, the fact that you can use the heat from a lighter to reveal the text is amazingly twisted.

The publisher is hoping to make copies of the special version available sometime in 2018.
