The secret to getting a good night’s rest would be having a comfortable bed, as well as being in the right temperature, with a nice pillow and bolster for others. Of course, it also helps if everything around you was deathly quiet, and for some of us, we would need to have a decent soothing soundtrack playing in the background. With the $69.95 Sleep Sound Generating Pillow, you can be ushered into dreamland faster than you can count up to 100 sheep.
The Sleep Sound Generating Pillow happens to be a cordless plush pillow which will play back white noise as well as nine relaxing nature sounds so that you will be able to sleep faster than you have ever done before. Instead of having to deal with the nasty tangles of a headphone cord, there will be well hidden speakers in the pillow which will be able to deliver clear audio without bulky components. Apart from that, it also helps keep the sound close to your ear, resulting in a lower level of play volume compared to speakers so that others in the same room as you, too, will be able to sleep.

Sound is very important to a lot of us. We listen to music, hear birds chirping in the morning, know when something is wrong with our car, and loads of other scenarios you’re all well acquainted with. In that same vein, sound can also alter our mood, especially when it comes to music that is being distorted because of a bad pair of headphones.
While buying expensive headphones normally means you don’t have to deal with many audial issue, it doesn’t mean there’s not always going to be a better pair out there somewhere. If you’re content with the earbuds or headphones you currently have, but wish they had a bit of a boost, then the Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS might be able to help. This is a digital audio converter as the name suggests, and it can plug into your PC or Mac through USB.
This will dramatically improve your digital audio listening experience, by providing deeper bass and more power than a standard laptop headphone output. This is very small, which makes it perfect for all of you who don’t like staying in one place for too long, and is encased in aluminum so it can withstand constant transport. Of course, something like this isn’t going to come cheap, and you’ll need to be prepared to spend around $190 on it. Reading around, it is said that you’ll only have volume control through the DacMagic rather than on your computer, but that is a small price to pay for better sound quality.

There comes a time in everyone’s lives where you feel like you are the key master. There are keys for old apartments, your parents house, pad locks, car keys, and much, much more. While we don’t want to be without a key we need, they can get to be a bit on the loud side in your bag or pocket. Likely because it’s a piece of metal dangling on a ring next to a bunch of other pieces of metal.
While keys are likely going to continue to be made of this same material for some time, you can lessen the amount of it that you have to carry around with you. The Keybrid is not only a key, but also a functioning keyring all-in-one. While you will need to have these cut to fit your specific needs, it would take out a big chunk of the jingle-jangle in your pockets.
It’s a very simple idea, but one that could bring on its own problems. We’re all too familiar with forgetting which key is which, and fumbling around in front of the door at night, wishing there was an easier way to do things. As this would essentially be removing the head of the key, you’d have to find a new way to categorize which is what. There are two blanks available for SC1 and KW1 keys/locks, and either will cost around $9 a piece. If you’d like to get a bundle that has one of each, it will cost around $17. Either of these should fit around 95% of the locks in the US should you be concerned about where it will and won’t be relevant.

If you’re a dreamer, weirdo, conspiracy theorist, or all or any of the aforementioned, then seeing the movie Inception was a total mind-f***. There were so many intricacies to the plot; so many twists, turns, and what-ifs. That’s why designers Bruno Gervasi and Reid Cuddy thought it would be a brilliant idea to make it into a board game. Needless to say, you already have the spinner.
They call it “Inceptor,” and the plot is as such: the board is meant to represent a dreamer’s mind, otherwise known as “A Mark.” As the designers put it the goal is to “plant an idea in the Mark’s dream, hoping that when he wakes, he will carry out their chosen task.” Seems pretty cool, and probably as confusing as the movie that inspired it. The game is currently a Kickstarter project, that you can learn about and/or contribute to by clicking here. Perhaps if you do so you can help to make this game a reality…..or a dream…..
