Exercise Fabulously

There’s a new jump rope that will make you look fabulous while you exercise.

This LED embedded smart jump rope will make it fun to… well… jump. Because this LED jump rope is so pretty and shiny and it’s smart, it will also increase your productivity by recording the progress of your jumping number, time you’ve jumped and calorie loss. It’ll also display these metrics in front of you as you use it, through a “persistance of vision” effect. You can also set up your future jumping goals with your smartphone.

The LED embedded smart jump rope is around $89.99 to $258 based on the size you order from, meaning that for once short people have an advantage.

Fret Zeppelin System Teaches You How To Play A Real Guitar

Learning how to play any instrument is hard, but luckily we are now starting to see products like the Fret Zeppelin, which should go a long way to make things a bit easier, at least for guitars. It’s a set of thin LED strips that fit right next to each fret on a guitar’s neck, and light up the spots where your fingers need to be, guiding you through the song. The app detects when you’ve played the note, and moves on to the next position as you play. Each strip is about half the height of a fret, so it won’t interfere with your playing ability. And once you’ve mastered a song, you can enable a multicoloured light show, giving you a bunch of “extra flair” as you play. It’s a fantastic idea and if done properly, will totally be worth the $199 pledge necessary to secure your October 2017 shipping date.

TRiLIGHT Motion Activated Light Uses LEDs For Maximum Efficiency

trilight-motion-activated-garage-light

The price of LEDs has dropped significantly over the years, and we’re starting to see some really useful products at an affordable price. The TRiLIGHT Motion Activated Garage Light screws into a standard socket but puts out 3,000 lumens, which is about 4 times more than a standard 60W bulb, and yet only needs 25W to accomplish this. Your garage will be flooded with light, with you can direct pretty much anywhere you want through the three adjustable panels. The motion sensing feature doesn’t use one of those old school sensors that require you to jump up and down and wave your hands around, it uses “Microwave Motion Sensing Technology” to detect even the smallest movements and light up as soon as you need it. One TRiLIGHT will set you back $99 right now, down from its expected $129 retail price.

Bed Light, A Motion Activated LED Light For Your Nighttime Bathroom Breaks

motion-activated-bed-light-640x533

My girlfriend wakes up every darn morning around 3am, for a bathroom break. She’s kind enough not to turn any lights on, but I still hear her fumbling about in the dark, trying to make her way back to the bed. Do I feel sorry? No, sleep is important! But with the BedLight, we might find some compromise. It’s two 5ft strips of LEDs that you place underneath your bed, and that turn on as soon as they detect movement, and turn off after your 30s to 10 minute adjustable timer runs out. They come with all the mounting accessories, including clips to hide the cables, and can ship with either one or two sensors, depending on how many sides of your bed you need to outfit with the BedLight. Price is either $55 or $69, depending on your sensor requirement.

This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet Is Perfect For The Geek In Your Life

led-star-bracelet

With the amount of beauty right here on Earth, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how amazing outer space can be. Fortunately for us, the good folks at NASA have the Hubble Telescope pointed at the stars, capturing amazing images like the one used on this Celestial Fireworks Bracelet.

This Celestial Fireworks Bracelet celebrates a spectacular image captured by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope of Westerlund 2, a cluster in the constellation Carina. (It’s 20,000 light years away, so this image really is that old.) On its own, it’s a gorgeous image, but we’ve highlighted the young star cluster’s sparkle by adding 15 tiny twinkling white LED lights to represent more foreground stars. They’re powered by a rechargeable battery; the hinged bangle ships with a proprietary USB charging cable to keep it entwinkling. But there’s an on/off button, too, in case you prefer it dark. Either way, it’s a fabulous tribute to the magnificence that is space and mankind’s exploration of it.

A single charge can have the bracelet twinkling for up to 8 hours at a time. It weighs 3.2 oz. and costs all of $60.

The Matchbook, An LED Flashlight The Size Of A Matchstick

Matchbook-flashlight

We’re not sure why you’ll ever need a flashlight that’s about the size of a matchstick, but they apparently exist. The Matchbook packs 8 tiny lights, with a single LED at the tip. The base is magnetic, so it can easily attach to a metallic surface (provided it’s ferrous), and will last up to 8 hours. The entire set of 8 will then provide you up to 64 hours of illumination… but that’s it. They’re apparently not rechargeable, but since they’re meant to be used in emergencies, we’re sort of ok with that. They’re small enough to be tossed in a purse, a wallet, or any other small space. At $32 for a set of 8 (plus one spare one for good measure), it’s not a terrible expense.
