Deal Of The Day: 39% Off On Liquid Image EGO Action Cam

redesign_LiquidImage_MF4_1214

If you want to get in on the POV videos/action vids trend, but don’t want to pony up the fairly onerous sums a GoPro demands, know there are plenty of other options on the market. The Liquid Image EGO is a mountable, full-HD action sport camera with WiFi. It’s small, shoots 1080p video at 30fps and 720p at 60fps, and shoots “12.0 MP images through a 136-degree lens and includes a continuous photo mode.” The battery will last you between 1.5h and 2h. It’s a decent camera, but more importantly, it’s an affordable camera, clocking in at a very respectable $120 after today’s rebate.

Stridalizer Brings Smarts To Your Runnings Shoes

Screen Shot 2014-12-09 at 12.14.18 AM

There are those that run to catch buses, and those that take buses to go running somewhere. You see, jogging is a freedom and an exhilaration few get to experience, yet as much as they can love something they can also love it wrong. Runners can develop bad habits, or even never learn the good ones in the first place. Smart insoles Stridalizer hopes to give you the sensor data you’re missing to analyze your stride and develop a more efficient method of locomotion. Yes, there is such a thing as proper running form, although many do prefer to run comfortably regardless of any technical shortcomings. For those that care, here’s how the Stridalizer works.

Once inside your kicks, the soles measure foot pressure across a variety of sensors, developing a moving image of your stride.

We have designed our solution to continue to monitor your run, and interrupt you only when it needs to “alert” you with some important information or quick guidance. For example, if you start persistently overpronating, or if your footstrike pattern changes, you will get a visual as well as an audio alert – this way you can keep your eyes on the trail and still get the information or advice that’s relevant for you – WHEN it becomes relevant!

If you are trying to buildup your pace or find the optimal rhythm for your next marathon, Stridalyzer helps you monitor and track the three fundamental performance parameters: Stride Rate, Stride Length and the most elusive – Ground Contact Time. Using our patent-pending technology, we can measure ground contact time extremely accurately!

The information is nicely presented in an app, which is free with the $75 pledge to own a pair.

Pyro Wristwatch Shoots Fireballs, Is Awesome

wristband-fireball-launcher

You’re looking at a James Bond-style wrist-worn device that shoots fireballs. It’s meant to be used by magicians and illusionists, but let’s face it, we’re all going to want one. It works by spitting out “heated wads of flash paper (aka nitrocellulose), that launch up to 10-feet from the barrels when ignited.” The device packs 4 such shots, and each one can be activated remotely with the squeeze of a remote controller. It’s a high quality device that comes with a 60 replacement warranty. It’s $174 and is cool enough for illusionists of all levels, as well as anyone who loves the idea of shooting fire from their hands. Just don’t do anything stupid with it, please.

Sold out at the moment, but should ship by December 17th.

Toolbox Fridge Looks Right At Home In Your Garage

toolbox_fridge_1

Your garage is like your second home. It’s where you work on your car, and where you go to get away from it all. It’s your sanctuary and you’ve spent a fortune buying only the best tool boxes and tools. You could fit a regular fridge in there for refreshments and such… but why not just go with the Versional Portable Garage Toolbox? It’s a small fridge that looks just like one of your toolboxes, but features a cooling compartment large enough to fit a bunch of stuff. There’s even three drawers up top, so it’s not completely just a gimmick. It’s painted the same kind of red or blue that many of the most popular toolboxes are painted, so you can sneak a beer or five on the sly without the spouse ever knowing a thing. Not that you should have to hide your drinking habits from your significant others, but hey, that’s marriage sometimes. What’re you gonna do?

It’s $400 and measures 17″W x 18 3/4″D x 31 11/16″H.

3M’s ePrivacy Filter Software Will Keep Your Private Things Private

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 3M for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

You’re an exemplary employee, handing in your reports on time, showing up to all the meetings and contributing to your company’s smooth running just as much as the next guy.  But you’re also a human being with normal distractions, and desires to look at a few non-work-related things on your computer now and then.  Nothing wrong with that, especially if you’re productive to start with; your private life is your business and should remain yours.  3M already makes a Privacy Filter film that limits the viewing angle on your computer screen, so that only you can see what’s going on and not those to the sides.  And now they’re introducing ePrivacy Filter Software that further enhances what the filter does.

 photo ScreenShot2014-10-21at95714AM_zpsb2eb4d87.png

Using your PC’s webcam, the new software uses facial recognition technology to detect when you’re looking at the screen, automatically blurring everything when you walk away from your desk.  Even more impressively, it can detect when someone other than you is creeping up behind you and alerts you with an on-screen pop-up!  If you’re reading an important personal email, you don’t want Silent Jim to hover behind your shoulder and read it too!  With the 3M ePrivacy Software and the 3M Privacy Filter, you’ll have true 180 degree protection from unwanted intrusions in your private life.

It’s PC only at the moment, and there are some system requirements as well as the need for a webcam.  You can Learn more about 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software, as well as try it out for free: Download a 30-day free trial of 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software.

Your MacBook, especially if it’s an Air, has fairly limited storage. You can do a few things to deal with this, such as be very selective about the things you keep on your hard drive, and deleting old, unused files. But if you’ve done all that and are still running out, you can expand your memory fairly easily with the HyperDrive MacBook Storage Expander. It fits right into your MacBook’s SD card slot, and contains a MicroSD card of any capacity. It accepts any microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC (including 128GB) memory card, and has a brushed Aluminum finish for a perfect, flush appearance.

Blown Glass Solar System Christmas Tree Ornament Set

planet-christmas-tree-ornaments

Last time we spoke of planetary glassware, it was for the Solar System Glass Set and you guys seemed to love it. Well today you’re looking at a set of blown glass tree ornaments featuring 9 planets and the Sun. Yes, 9 planets, which means Pluto once again made it! But as cool as this set is, there’s some bad news. First off, it’ll take 3 to 5 weeks to ship, which means you probably can’t get it in time for Christmas. And on top of that, the thing is $375! So yeah, that’s out of budget for most people.

Still, if you’ve got too much disposable income and like to plan things way, way, way ahead of time, you can always get these for next year.
