Our Top 2: Best Radar Detectors

Top Radar Detectors

Save money and time with our top radar detector picks.

A radar detector sits quietly on your dashboard, using its instruments to provide information not just about radar signals, but about many different road and traffic conditions. They’re valuable auto tech devices for many kinds of drives, but when the time comes to actually buy one, many people don’t know what they’re looking for…which is why we’re here to break it down for you.

Radar detectors sense not only radar lasers and frequencies, but also traffic lights, road conditions, and even driver behavior, depending on the model. The more advanced versions come with iPhone apps and are equipped with GPS for an even more comprehensive look at road around you. Notable features for top models include the ability to filter out false positives, an alert if it looks like you’re getting sleepy, real time traffic updates, and of course detailed maps and information on radar hotspots and detection.

When looking at what to buy, focus on the readout screen and any associated apps or car accessories, because this is how your information is relayed, and you want it to be clearly legible while you are driving. You should also look at the radar detection quality – radar signals function on a number of different bands, and a good detector will search for all types of radar in use on the streets at a handy range. After that, the extra features are largely about personal choice. Truckers may enjoy the many add-ons, but they may not be necessary for the average driver. Let’s take a look at a couple strong candidates for our best radar detector list.

Darth Vader Toothpick Dispenser

BAN16831

Ok… we said we would stop talking about Star Wars stuff. We know. But how can you resist a Darth Vader toothpick dispenser? The toothpicks stealthily hide in his cape, and every time you need a new one you depress a lever at the back, his outstretched hands reaches in there and returns to the initial position with a new ‘Lightsaber’. It’s a novelty item, sure… but it’s Darth Vader handing out toothpicks, so there’s something a little amusing to see such a powerful character stuck with such a mundane task. It’s $34.95 on pre-order.

The SeatRack Gives You A Cargo Rack Inside Your Car

seatrack_interior_cargo_rack_6

You go to Home Depot and maybe you get a little carried away: you buy some large item and suddenly have no practical way to carry it home. Sure, you can drop some seatbacks and have it awkwardly stick out your trunk. Maybe you tie a little flag on it to warn other motorists of the danger. Or you get the SeatRack and conveniently fit your large item right inside your car. It replaces your seat’s headrests with hard horizontal bars that come with straps. So just slide that lumber, surfboard, or oversized piping right in, strap it down and go home like you’re driving a pickup. It’s $130.

The Creator Of Android Wants To Give You A Free Dashcam, Free As In Beer

Not the dashcam being discussed.

Not the dashcam being discussed.

Years ago, Andy Rubin gave the world Android. Not content with how practical and slow moving Google could be (yes, that says more about Andy Rubin than it says about Google), he eventually left and founded Playground Global, a hybrid consulting firm/incubator that focuses on developing the technologies that will drive the world of tomorrow. And one of the many projects incubating there at the moment is the plan to develop a dashcam that will be given to the end user free of charge. Yes, a dashcam like the Russians are fond of having on their windshields, yours to keep, for $0. Of course… free never means free, and although you won’t have to spend any money on it, you will have to agree to have the camera send data back to HQ. Just what that data is, and what they plan to do with it isn’t clear at the moment (talks of AI, world mapping, Street-View competition, etc.), but Rubin is no idiot, and the company he founded to the tune of $350 million in funding is aware that they’ll have to alleviate privacy concerns if and when their project launches.

RightShears Solves A Problem We Didn’t Know We Had

Right-Shears-Right-Angle-Scissors-by-ReExcite-Featured-image-672x372

Look, scissors have been around for a while, and for the most part, they do their job just fine. But just fine didn’t seem to be enough for ReExcite, a startup whose website was clearly designed in 1998. They’re making a set of scissors called RightShear and while they do exactly the same thing regular scissors do, they do so at a 90 angle. This way you can keep your hand out of the way of whatever it is you’re cutting. It may seem a little useless for small tasks, but if you’re cutting large pieces of cardboard that better lay flat for some reason, RighShear will get the job done much more easily. As a matter of fact, if you look at videos of the item in action you’ll see the ergonomics are actually quite improved. They’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign soon at an undisclosed pricepoint, and you can sign up on their page to be notified of when this happens.
