Tiny itty bitty powerful lantern
If you brought a regular size lantern with you in one of those high-tech research submarines and then put it outside at 2 miles deep it would probably end up looking something like what we have here. This miniature LED lantern stands just over 2" tall and fits perfectly on a keychain. It's an ideal companion whether you are trekking across an open field on a moonless night or just trying to locate some spare quarters in the backseat of your car. A simple twist of the base illuminates a bright white LED bulb and another twist puts the lantern into it's flashing mode. The high quality Nichia LED should never need to be replaced and the batteries will run 25 hours (or 50 hours in flashing mode).
Using this camera at a nude beach will get you the best results. I especially like the smart wind vein on top of it to keeps the camera facing in one direction while it's spinning through the air.

The company claims to control manic alcoholics, drink and drivers and such...
More than 1.5 million DUI arrests are made, and approximately three million alcohol-related violent crimes are committed each year. Now it is possible to sentence the individuals who commit these crimes to sobriety with the newest multi-language alcohol monitoring technology from BI Incorporated. With Sobrietor®, an offender can be required to remain sober. Since monitoring is performed remotely using a telephone connection, compliance with the alcohol restriction is verified each and every day.
After the Swiss Army knife USB Stick comes now the Swiss Army Knife Mp3 Player. Mighty cool!
It had to happen, the world's first gadget has been tech'ed up. Tucked into this slick looking little Swiss Army Knife from Victorinox is a 1 Gig detachable MP3 Player (so you can pop the knife in your luggage and carry the player onto a plane when travelling). The knife has a blade, nail file and scissors and looks rather dreamy, and the MP3 player will play MP3, WAV and WMA files, has an FM radio, a voice recorder, a rather neat remote control dongle, and a sexy jogging arm-band so you can listen to your tunes when you're - well, jogging presumably. Gorgeously well made of course, and ideal for all sport nuts.

I would like to see the reactions of the other parents when you send your kid with a hoddy like this to the Kindergarten tomorrow.
This hood is designed for children of 3 to 8 years old. The kit protects the head and the respiratory system. It is comfortable to wear and allows a wide field of vision. The kit includes a blower airflow unit, which creates positive pressure thus preventing contaminated air from entering the hood. Supplied with a drinking tube and powered by 4 x 123A (3v.) Lithium batteries. Supplied in an easy to carry case with a handle and shoulder strap.
