The HyperDrive Is The One Dongle To Rule Them All

We’re not going to make any commentary about how Steve Jobs is probably rolling in his grave. We’re not going to whine about Apple’s increasingly boneheaded design decisions. Instead, we’re just going to leave this right here. It’s the HyperDrive, and it gives you back all the freaking ports Apple took away on the new MacBook Pro. Oh, you don’t think you can work with only 3 Thunderbolt ports and 2 USB-C ports? That’s fine, here’s a sleek, nicely designed adapter that features USB-A ports, a SD Card or microSD slot, HDMI port, Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB-C port and USB 3.1 USB-C port. It’s able to handle data throughput speeds of up to 50GB/s, and full power charging since it handles up to 100W. It’s small enough to carry in a pocket and people are so excited about it, the Kickstarter is now funded almost 5 times over. It’s a $69 pledge, with deliver in March 2017. But hurry up, quantities are limited.

What’s Not To Like About Microwaveable Boots?

Come home after a day of Christmas shopping with your feet as cold as ice? Imagine the feeling of slipping on these fuzzy little boots after you’ve given them a soak in the microwave for a minute or two. They’re filled with specially treated millet grains and dried lavender flower, and can either be heated up, or put in the freezer and chilled to treat an injury (or just make your feet cold… if that’s what you’re into). They probably won’t stay warm for very long, but at $32, we’d still consider buying them if only for that initial heat-induced footgasm.

It’s Time For The Tactical Christmas Stockings

It’s becoming a bit of a thing that around this time each year, we remind you about the existence of these awesome Tactical Christmas Stockings. Made out of rip stop nylon, these badass looking stockings feature MOLLE loops on the outside, but no loops on the inside. There’s a draw-string pouch, a zipper pouch, and a Velcro loop for patches. Insert as many candy canes, lollipops, and assorted doodads to end up with a Christmas Stocking that’s chock full of stuff, inside and out. And make a statement in the process. What that statement is though… we’re not sure. All we can tell you is it’s $25.

Deal Of The Day: 80% Off On Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens

The new iPhone 7 may have 2X optical magnification, but what about 8X? That’s how much you can get out of this Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens, although you’ll look a little silly in the process. But that’s fine, because it’s not like it’s supposed to stay on your phone at all times, it’s removable by simply clipping it on or off.

The easily removable Smartphone Telephoto PRO Camera Lens changes that, allowing you to get clear images at up to 8 times closer, letting you capture those specific landscape details or the intricacies of a flower or small object. Pack it up for your next outdoor adventure and you’ll be thrilled with the results!

– Capture clear images up to 8 times closer without distortion
– Adjust the lens like you would a normal camera, just twisting it
– Clip on or remove the lens to your camera in seconds

Normally $89.95, it’s down to $17.99 with today’s deal, shipped for free.

This Duvet Cover Makes Itself

There’s now a duvet cover that can make itself at the touch of a button. Yes, that’s the kind of world we live in. The SmartDuvet is a $269 system that automagically straightens your duvet flat by inflating a lattice-shaped bladder at a preset time. The system connects to your smartphone and allows you to schedule when it does its thing, so that you can sleep in on Saturdays for example, but we imagine it can also inflate on demand. If it manages to fully fund, it should ship in May 2017.
