Beeracuda Is The Perfect Drink Chilling Sling

beeracuda-1

Are you a beer lover? Well, who isn’t? I personally don’t know of a person who wouldn’t enjoy a chilled beer when offered one. The point, however, is to keep your beer chilled, always. Well, indoors it’s possible with a cool fridge, but what about outdoors? How do you keep your beer cold when you’re out and about? You definitely cannot carry an ice box along wherever you go. So what helps?

The answer is: a Beeracuda! It’s an insulated beer sling made by Burton that can keep your 6-pack of beers, or soda, chilled and cozy, stacked inside its insulated zippered tube. There also is a double-sized Beeracuda that has the ability to store 10 cans of your favorite beer. And, the shoulder strap comes with a koozie, so you have easy access to one chilled beer without having to open the entire sling bag. So, party whenever and however you want to with your Burton’s Beeracuda, which will only set you back $20 or $25.

This Hodor Door Stopper Is A Hit

hodor_hold_the_door_stop_1

So… not to spoil the show for those who haven’t watched yet, interesting things happen to Hodor in Game of Thrones. It involves several things, among them being him holding a door in a very important scene. So it stands to reason that you’d see a Hodor door stopper skyrocket in popularity on Kickstarter: a project that started out seeking a modest $5,000 is up to $84,000 as of this writing. It’s 6 inches tall and 3D printed out of, well, plastic. Apparently making this out of metal would raise the costs “to over $500 per unit”. We question the company’s ability to accurately gauge the cost of metal door stoppers, but it doesn’t matter anyway, since it’s a freaking door stopper and who really needs it being made out of metal. If you want your own “Hodoor” Hold the Door Doorstop, you’ll need to pledge $37 or more.

Foldimate Folds Your Laundry For You

foldimate_family_1

Moved out on your own and now you have to do your own laundry? Yeah, it sucks, we know. But if you’ve got some cash, you’ll soon be able to skip on one of the more annoying parts of the process: the folding. Foldimate is a rather large appliance whose sole job it is to fold your clean laundry. You clip the garments to the front, and the device brings them inside, folds them, steams them, and even perfume, softens, and sanitizes them. You’re left with a neat pile of folded clothes that you can then easily place in your dresser. If it works as advertised, it looks like an amazing device, albeit an expensive luxury at $700-$800. And it’s not quite ready for prime-time, as you’ll only be able to start placing pre-orders in 2017.

Set Of Pistols Crafted From 4.5 Billion Year Old Meteorite

cabot-gun

A really long time ago, a meteorite landed in what is now Gibeon, Namibia. The space rock itself is estimated to have been formed around the same time the Earth was: 4.5 billion years ago. And now, a US company called Cabot Guns took a 77 pound fragment from the impact, and used that to forge two classic M1911 pistols, originally made by none other than Colt. Their creation looks stunning, clearly highlighting the otherworldly nature of the material that forms it. It’s called the Big Bang Pistol Set, and it’s a one-of-a-kind item that is expected to be worth around $5 million. They’re not only decorative either:

The pistols are fully-functional – and resultant of their National Match barrels, accurate; verified both on the rest and in off-hand shooting. Leaving nothing to chance in terms of functionality, our engineers used electron beam technology to meticulously add bimetal support only to the frame/slide rails, hammer, guide rod and extractor of the Big Bag set. – and the pistol’s components, down to the barrel bushing and trigger – are 100% Gibeon meteorite.

That’s really all there is to say about this, so come on over the fold and admire this work of art in a series of fascinating photos.

It’s Time To Think Smart: The Best Smart Appliances To Consider

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. All opinions are 100% mine.

undefined

Nationwide provided me with information regarding its In The Nation blog post

We live in an age where it’s relatively trivial to include fairly high-tech sensors into common household objects.  Not only sensors, but Wifi and Bluetooth radios as well.  The added benefit of being able to do this is that formerly independent, non-connected devices can now be hooked up to the Internet, and to each other.  As a matter of fact, one of the biggest talking points at this year’s CES was the ‘Internet of Things’, and this simply refers to the idea that we are entering an age where everything around us can be controlled remotely, and interconnected in ways never seen before.  The age of the Smart Home is upon us.

As part of this trend, normal household appliances are quickly gaining features and abilities not normally associated with such items.  In this article we’re going to review some of the The Best Smart Appliances to Consider, from thermostats, to vacuum cleaners, to ovens and washing machines.

Smoke Alarms and Thermostats

One of the more famous entrants in this field is the Nest Thermostat and its sibling, the smoke detector Nest Protect. The thermostat is able to learn your living habits, and automatically adjust your home’s temperature to save energy, lowering heating when you’re away, for example. Nest Protect on the other hand can give you more detailed information about potential fires, telling you which room it’s detected something, and whether it’s CO2, or smoke.  You’ll even get a notification on your smartphone if this happens when you’re away.

Cookware

The Belkin WeMo Slow Cooker connects to your smartphone (and the Internet) to allow you to remotely control your dinnertime preparations.  You can adjust temperature and cooking times, and turn the appliance on or off from the comfort of wherever it is you are.

The June Intelligent Oven is able to identify the food you place inside, weigh it, and recommend cooking temperatures and times.  You can control everything through a tablet or smartphone, while simultaneously being able to monitor your food’s progress through the integrated camera.

Room Cleaners

One of the oldest characters in this field is the venerable Roomba.  But don’t let its ubiquity fool you; the company is constantly upgrading its lines and keeping up to date with all modern tech.  The latest, the Roomba 980 has more power, better battery life, and more efficient floor coverage algorithms that allow it to do more with less effort. Through your smartphone you’re even able to set cleaning schedules so it doesn’t get in your way while you’re home.

Washing Machines

Finally we take a look at washing machines.  LG is one of the front-runners in this category, and they’ve made an especially impressive product with the Smart ThinQ™ 4.7 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Top Load SmartWasher.  It allows you to  “monitor your laundry remotely and download new and improved cycles. The Smart Grid Ready feature automatically runs the washer when electricity rates are lowest.”   Like many of the products featured here, all this is accessed and controlled through your mobile device.
