The Tab LapDesk Lets You Work, Multitask, Anywhere

lapdesk-1

Let’s face it, these days no one just focuses on one task without interruption. We all have our smartphones or tablets nearby, periodically interrupting our potentially important work with updates about the neighbour’s cat. If you’re on the go, it may be harder to find a surface large enough to accommodate your papers and your device simultaneously. The Tab LapDesk features a slot on one side where you can angle your device and keep an eye on questionably important updates, while still having enough area to get actual work done. It’s made from bamboo, and costs $59.

Retrofit A Backup Camera With The Pearl RearVision

Pearl-RearVision-Backup-Camera

You car didn’t come with a backup camera, but you’ve bumped into enough luxury sedans while parking that you’ve determined you should totally have gotten that option? It’s not too late to get your own, and with the Pearl RearVision Backup Camera, you can do so elegantly. Integrated into a nicely designed license plate holder, the camera will stream wirelessly to your smart device, you so can easily keep an things. The best part is the ease of installation; the RearVision is battery-powered and charged through a little solar panel integrated on the bottom bezel. That means no wiring, drilling, or modifications needed on your ride. A car adapter then plugs into your OBD port, and serves as a link between the camera and your phone. The only downside is the hefty $499 price tag. But if it stops you from damaging your bumper even once, we say it’s worth it.

The Four Most Common Uses of Electric Linear Actuators

Linear actuators refer to the devices used to convert rotational motion into the corresponding linear motion. The monitor load feedback of a linear actuator is used in regulating the amount of force applied by the linear actuator. These devices have widespread applications in both the industrial and domestic settings. The various forms of energy used to drive electric linear actuators include piezoelectric, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and electrical. However, DC or AC power is predominantly used to operate such devices. Electric linear actuators present many advantages to the user.

Repeated Linear Movement
Linear actuators are used for performing the task of moving a particular load repeatedly. They can continuously move a single load or various loads to specific consistent locations. Such repeated linear motion of the actuators requires synchronization of various axes in order to achieve coordinated motion. As such, linear actuators are the preferred choice for repeated, continuous and coordinated movement of loads.

Adaptable Movement
Adaptable movement refers to the motion that adapts or changes. Electric linear actuators are also applied in adaptable movements. In this regard, the motion’s nature, positions or load changes. These devices are used to attain and control adaptable movement by synchronizing them with various other machines. For example, linear actuators are used in the electric wheelchairs to improve their movements and thus enhancing the independence of persons with disabilities.

Gallium, The Melt-in-your-Hands Metal That You Can Buy

gallium

It’s kind of safe too, or at the very least, it’s safer than playing with Mercury. Gallium is a metal whose melting point is at 29.76 °C (85.56 °F), below your skin temperature. That means that simply handling a little block in your hands will melt it and you’ll have liquid metal in the palm of your hand! We wouldn’t recommend ingesting it since it is metal, and it will temporarily stain your skin as it gets into the crevices on your epidermis, but it’s still safe enough to play around with and show your friends and even kids. You can get a 20g chunk of it on Amazon for $10, which is dirt cheap for anyone with a slight scientific inclination, or that just likes anything remotely cool.

Smart Toothbrush Promises To Speed Brushing Up Significantly

glaresmile-toothbrush-2

No one genuinely enjoys brushing their teeth, it’s just something you do because you have to. At least that’s how we feel about it. But if the tedium of having to move a plastic stick up and down your teeth is just too much work for you, the folks behind the GlareSmile brush have something for you. Featuring three rotating and pulsating brushes, you simply have to glide the head over your teeth and the brushes take care of the rest automatically, cleaning three surfaces at once and speeding the process up significantly. A touchscreen on the handle lets you switch between the different brushing modes, which include ‘sensitive teeth’ and ‘gum cleaning’, among others. Interchangeable heads mean several people in your household can use it, and a clever charging dock means you can keep the entire kit nice and tidy. Smartphone connectivity brings data tracking and analysis, letting you see info like brushing time, pressure applied, and a bunch of other variables for the data geek among you. It’s a reasonable €99 pledge (around $112USD) to get your own, with shipping expected around December of this year.

New Service Texts Game Of Throne Spoilers To Your Enemies

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 7.00.05 AM

Someone piss you off lately? There’s lots of things you can do to get back at them, but none of these more cruel than using Spoiled.io on them. It’s a service that will ruthlessly text the latest Game of Thrones spoilers to your intended victim; you simply have to enter a phone number and pay $0.99. It’s a form of cruelty so raw and and unconscionable that we literally think the folks behind the service have to be possessed by Satan. Or something. Ok, granted, there’s only one episode left this season, so June 26th is kind of your cutoff date. But don’t you think ruining the season finale should make up for that friend bailing on your camping plans last week?
