Smart Keychain Is Your New Best Friend

Smart Keychain

Smartphones, smart cars, smart watches, smart glasses…in case you haven’t noticed, everything is being upgraded to smart status these days. Another thing to add to that list is the Smart Keychain by Creative Designs, Inc. As the name implies, it’s a keychain that’s smarter than your average key ring.

It has built-in Bluetooth connectivity which makes key location possible. It’s also a USB flash drive so you can store stuff and transfer files on the go. It also means having a flash drive with you wherever and whenever, since you probably won’t leave the house without it.

Light It Up: This Bluetooth Speaker Runs on Fire Power

Pelty Speaker

Pelty is literally the hottest thing to happen to speakers since, well, ever. We say “literally” because it runs purely on firepower provided by a lone candle burning from within. Its design is sleek and simple but eye-catching all the same. Pelty hooks up with your smartphone or music player via Bluetooth and uses absolutely no electricity to play your choice tunes.

Pelty has a built-in thermoelectric generator that converts the candle’s thermal energy into electricity. And in case you’re worried about the speaking catching fire, don’t be, because it’s made from a ceramic material (because its creators are smart enough to consider that angle, that’s for sure.)

Can’t Find It? Just Tag it With iFind

iFind

 

People are forgetful by nature. Even those who normally aren’t have temporary lapses in memory work gets especially busy or if they happen to have a lot on their plate at the moment. Take a second to add up all the time that you’ve wasted looking for your wallet or keys or phone because you put it somewhere absentmindedly and forgot about it mere seconds later. Those are minutes or even hours of your time that you could’ve spent doing something else worthwhile or productive.

There are a number of tags in the market that claim to help you locate your stuff in a jiffy. But few are as hassle-free and easy-to-use as iFind. It’s different from the rest because it doesn’t need any batteries to run. Instead, it comes with a power bank that stores and recycles electromagnetic energy to keep working, day in and day out.

redesign_mainframe_630x473_(1)

Hate it or love it, the iPhone is not about to get a physical keyboard. Most of us are ok with this by now, but there’s a legion of ex-Blackberry users and old-timey types who still long for the warm fuzzy feels that only a physical keyboard can provide. This Bluetooth Keyboard Case has such a keyboard, and it’s made specifically for the iPhone 5/5S. Just slide the phone in, slide the keyboard down, and peck away. Bluetooth takes care of the connection, while the typing surface offers up 50 keys for your communication needs. That includes numerals, symbols, brightness adjustments and even music playback controls. Normally you’d be expected to pay $69 for it, but after today’s deal it’s $39.

Deal Of The Day: 77% Off Invisible Bluetooth Headset

redesign_tih_mf

No one ever really gets that excited about a Bluetooth headset. But what about a $20 Bluetooth headset? The one you’re looking at right now is tiny, gives you 5 hours of talk time on one charge and instead of costing its usual $90, it’s $19.99. That’s a steal. The only other thing worth mentioning on this product is that it has a touch sensitive interface, rather than hard buttons you have to press.

Anova Sous-Vide Circulator Is Smartphone-Controlled

anova-sous-vide

We are big fans of sous-vide cooking at OhGizmo!. We have a full review of the Nomiku immersion circulator right here. In case you don’t know, sous-vide is a technique that involves putting your food in a sealed plastic bag and dunking it in water of a precise temperature for a long period of time. The result is tender, perfectly cooked meats and other things. It’s being used by many high-end restaurants and now increasingly by the average consumer.

The problem is that most people don’t know which temperatures to cook things at, and that’s where the Anova Precision Cooker comes in. It’s an immersion circulator that attaches to the side of your water pot, heats the water to a specific temp, and keeps it there. But the temperatures and cooking times are determined through the application, and relayed to the device via Bluetooth.

The available SDK means several applications can be developed for it, expanding the device’s utility and convenience. And then there’s the cost. A $139 pledge will get you one now, while the full retail price is still a very reasonable $170. That’s much less than most professional grade circulators, and is reaching the point where every household should seriously consider getting one.

Deal Of The Day: 20% Off On TrackR Tracking Sticker

redesign_trackr_mf

The TrackR sticker is a coin-sized Bluetooth-enabled device that sticks to any item you wish to keep track of. Just stick it on, and when you can’t find it anymore, launch the app on your smartphone and locate it in an instant. It’ll tell you the distance to your object, and at the press of a button, you can toggle an audible alarm on the sticker. It’s actually a two-way relationship, so if you’ve lost your phone but have the TrackR device in hand, you can press it to have your phone ring, even if it’s set to silent. Of course the tech requires you to be within Bluetooth range, but not necessarily your own; if another TrackR user passes within range and you’ve declared your item lost in your own app, you’ll get a notification of its whereabouts. You can pair up to 10 such stickers and track just about any item of value. Normally, you’d pay $25 for one sticker, but you can get it for $20 today.
