BTTF 2 Light-Up Shoes Available For Purchase

bacl-to-the-future-shoes

We’re just a few months away from 2015, the year Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future 2. Our hoverboards are nowhere to be seen, and our flying cars just don’t look right. But at least you can get your hands on the same light-up shoes our protagonist wore in the movie. Yes, we said light-up, but not lace-up; you’ll have to do that part yourself, although it looks like a simple velcro affair. The shoes are fully licensed and being sold by a Halloween costume company, with shipping expected in time for October 31st. Is McFly going to be a thing this Halloween? We doubt it, but that still shouldn’t stop you from spending the $100 asking price.

Check Out Acer’s Selfie Hat for London Fashion Week!

Selfie-Hat

In recent years, people have reached new heights when it comes to vanity. Maybe the era of selfies began when phone makers began putting a camera with each smartphone they made. It exploded when front-facing cameras were upgraded and when monopods (aka selfie sticks) made their way to Amazon.

Someone already came up with the Selfie Brush. Now are you ready for the Selfie Hat? The latter was created by fashion designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis in partnership with Acer. The pink sombrero is eye-catching not only because of all that glitter, but because of an attachment on the brim where Acer’s Iconia A-1 840 tablet is tucked in.

MittenFlask Is Perfect For The Slopes

FLSK-4548

Winter is just around the corner, and you’ll be wanting to booze up on the slopes, we know. No, you’re not? What kind of a person are you? And you call yourself a man…

Ok, whatever, we won’t judge. But if you do want to liquor up a bit while carving some snow, the MittenFlask seems just about perfect. One of the two mittens features a flask, connected to a bite valve so you won’t have to try to unscrew a top with mitten hands. We don’t know how much liquid it fits, but at $15 it doesn’t matter; some liquor is better than none.

There’s A Facebook Clone That Charges $9,000 For Membership

netropolitan-1

If you’re tired of rubbing elbows online with nothing but, you know, regular people, you’re going to want to take a look at Netropolitan. It’s an exclusive social network that charges $9,000 to enter. $6,000 of that is the initiation fee, then it’s $3,000 annually. In exchange for all those dollars, you gain access to “the online country club for people with more money than time”. But instead of a spa, jacuzzi, free towels, and rudimentary gym equipment (typical country club amenities), you’ll get to socialize with people just as, uh, special as you.

Netropolitan’s founder, James Touchi-Peters, 48, a composer and former conductor of the Minnesota Philharmonic Orchestra, said he had trouble finding people to whom he could relate on other social sites. “I saw a need for an environment where you could talk about the finer things in life without backlash — an environment where people could share similar likes and experiences,” he said.

The hefty initiation fee, he said, “ensures that our membership remains exclusive, but also private.”

Members must be at least 21 years old and must register using their real names. Once in, they may form groups around common interests, but will have access to posts and status updates by all other users. There are no ads, the site is not indexed by search engines, and moderators are active at all times to police bad behavior (like spamming ads for your own business).

Allegedly, the site has already attract hundreds of members, although you can’t really check it out right this minute since it seems to be down.

Texting-while-driving Detection Device Being Developed

driving-sms

There are many jurisdictions where you’re not allowed to text while driving. It makes sense: the practice kills. But of course, illegal doesn’t mean people don’t do it. Now a Virginia-based company, ComSonics, is developing a radar-gun like device that can detect the telltale radio frequencies emitted from a cellphone as it sends a text. Law enforcement officers will be able to point it at passing cars and know if the occupant has been sending a text. It won’t be able to say which occupant is guilty, however, so maybe it’ll only be used with single-ocupant vehicles. It’s also unlikely to be able to detect when you’re using data-based text applications, like iMessage or WhatsApp. But considering how dangerous distracted driving is, we’re kind of happy to see tech like this in development.

No, it’s not illegal everywhere to text while driving. But it is in the following states: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada. New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

redesign_15865431915154.GD8flk1fUbvNvC2FIJOd_height640

Playing games on mobile devices with on-screen controls just isn’t as much fun as with a dedicated controller. So if you’re in the market for something like that, you might want to take a look at the NES30 Bluetooth Controller. It connects to Android and iOS devices through Bluetooth, and looks exactly like an NES controller from the 80’s. If you were born in the 80’s, the retro look will be a throwback to all those mornings spent playing Ninja Gaiden while your parents harass you to get dressed for school. The keys are programmable, the battery rechargeable after 20+ hours of runtime, and it’s even compatible with PCs or Macs through a wired USB connection.

Normally you’d pay $40 for it, but it’s $29.99 with today’s deal.
