When you’re rudely interrupted from deep in the headphone zone, these touch-control wireless headphones from Outdoor Technologies will allow to quickly come back to planet earth. Just one quick swipe & the volume drops out allowing you to speak with whomever it was that dared to tap you on the shoulder. Another swipe up & you can get back to headbanging.
The Cabin In The Woods was one strange and awesome film. As far as twisted horror goes, it was no Human Centipede but then again, Universal Studios is never going to make that into a theme park attraction. They are however creating a replica of the Cabin In The Woods and they’re not leaving out a single detail. Even the forest will be real. Visitors will be able to tour the cabin and cube cells to get that deep creep out. The Cabin opens in September & will run through Halloween. via
After a long day on the trail or an even longer day in the car on the way to the campground, it’s nice to finally kick back by the fire. And the Mayfly Chair from Alite is a perfect place to plant yourself. It’s lightweight & comfortable; it folds up small to fit in your bag or car and it weighs only 1.4 pounds. Take it along.
What’s a pool party without an amphibious RC vehicle designed for delivering drinks on land or down to the deep end? This battery-powered cocktail cart is also equipped with an onboard water cannon for that impromptu wet T-shirt contest your guests are secretly hoping for.
At less than 3-inches, it’s a small one, but the index finger choil gives the stainless steel Dragonfly knife a big blade feel in the hand. And it’s so light—just over an ounce—that you’ll always bring it along. It features a locking blade and the bright orange handles are made of tough fiberglass reinforced nylon. If you can’t stand orange, it’s available in other colors, too.
If you thought counting steps only mattered to middle-aged women, guess again. You and your dog are the next target in the activity monitor revolution. The Whistle monitor attaches to your dogs collar and collects all kinds of doggy data including how much walking, play time, and rest he’s getting. The Whistle app creates graphs, tracks goals, and offer insights on your dog’s health.
Running out of propane most often happens when the grill is loaded & you’re a bit too loaded to drive down & get it refilled. When you shook it earlier it seemed fullish. It wasn’t. You’ would have known that if you had the Truma Levelcheck. It uses X-ray vision (ultrasound) to look inside your propane tank so you always know if you’ve got enough.
When it comes to cordless tools, they don’t get much better or beefier than Milwaukee Tools’ M12 Lithium-Ion system. Soon-to-be-released, the new 200-lumen LED Stick Light runs 4 hours on a charge, working both as a handheld light or a hanging work light thanks to the fold-away stainless hook for hanging it in hard-to-reach places.
It sounds almost too good to be true but this light & compact solar kettle will boil water, heat your soup or coffee, even desalinate ocean water for drinking in “just a while.” The length of that “while” of course, depends on how sunny it is but since it uses nothing but the energy of the sun, you can’t find a cleaner, greener kettle for off-the-grid use. via
