Music is a big part of our lives, and we love sharing things with friends. It only makes sense that we would have our friends listen in on old favorites or some awesome new bands we found, but we often come across the problem of only having one headphone jack, but needing two pairs of headphones to get the full effect.
While a headphone splitter is nice to have on hand, you would think you would only need to go as far as making accommodations for two. Of course, there are those who are quite the social butterfly, and will probably need space for more friends to be able to hear. If you happen to be one of these people, then the Octo Splitter would be perfect for listening to videos, tunes, or watching movies in groups when you don’t want the outside world to be able to hear at the same time. This is quite a stretch for a tune-sharing as it has enough space for 7 sets of earphones.
This little octopus splitter may be cute, but it would be a rather useless trinket to carry around in your bag for just-in-case situations where you would need to split headphones with 6 other people. If you often find yourself in study groups at a library, then this would be very helpful to have around, assuming that you don’t mind being the one that lays down money for it. There isn’t a price up for it just yet, but I can’t imagine something like this would cost an arm and a leg.
Hate exercise? Me too! But there’s a wealth of information that proves its a necessary evil. Getting up and getting going isn’t just about looking good, its about living longer, healthier, more productive lives. Sure, its good for the old cardiovascular system, but its also good for your brain, you bones… heck, every bit of you. So what else do you need to know to get moving?
Well, if you’re wearing a Pavlok Fitness Band, getting hit with a nice jolt of 340 volts of electric current, might just “remind” you to get it in gear. Yup, you heard me — If you fail to meet your goals, the results are shocking. The Pavlok Fitness Band does all the things your other fitness bands do, with an added bonus, real motivation.
First, you set a goal, say, you want to go to the gym every day, your Pavlok will then hold you accountable. If you reach your goal, you get rewards, like gift cards or coins, but if you skip a workout, you’ll owe money to another Pavlok Fitness Band user, have messages of your failures posted to your Facebook wall … or, well… get shocked.
The Pavlok Fitness Band will actually help you change your habits, by enforcing your goals, and its not just for fitness either. Pavlock can help you change almost any measurable pattern, like waking up earlier, or being on time. So if you’re ready to really make a change, pre-order a Pavlock today. Becoming who you want to be, may just be shockingly simple. Shipping in early 2015, for under 150 bucks, from pavlok.com. Electrocution? Yup, that might be the only thing that could work for me.

The smartwatch industry is certainly looking as though it is moving in the right direction, there is no doubt about it. However, with the likes of the Moto 360 being announced left and right, is there a market for “dumber” timepieces, so to speak? Fitness buffs might be looking forward to the Wellograph sapphire crystal wellness watch that happens to be the winner of CES 2014′s Innovations Design and Engineering Award.
Wellograph happens to be an activity tracker, in addition to being a heart rate monitor and a running watch, all crammed into one, delivering live, insightful information concerning the wearer’s activity thanks to a slew of high performance sensors (9-axis motion sensor and tri-LED integrated heart rate sensor). The Wellograph will also be able to measure other indicators such as steps, pace, idle time, calories burned, and heart BPM, among others.
With a sapphire crystal face that is on par with that of luxury timepieces, you can be sure that its scratch proof surface (other than diamonds) will serve you well for the longest time. It has a 7 day battery life and will support iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms – sorry, BlackBerry users. Expect the Wellograph’s pre-ordered units to arrive at the doorsteps of customers this coming September 12th.
Security has always been a pretty high priority for any one regardless of the era that one lives in. Even if you were one of those cave dwellers in the past, surely you know how to set up a barrier at the mouth of the cave to make sure that you can sleep easy during the night so that no unwanted guests come in and perhaps snack on one of your family members, right? Fast forward to the modern day, where dinosaurs are all but extinct, here we are with Noke, touted to be the first Bluetooth padlock in the whole world.
There is just this thing about padlocks – their keys tend to go missing by accident from time to time, and this “phenomena” seems to happen more often than not to some, and for those combination padlocks, it can be all too easy to forget the combination if you do not open it up every day and commit it to memory. Noke is here to save the day, being a Bluetooth padlock that one is able to share with the others.
FŪZ Designs came up with the Noke Bluetooth padlock which will work in tandem with your smartphone, giving you easy access to all the important things in your life. Not only that, you are also able to share access to your possessions easily, safely, and securely. You will first need to download the iOS or Android app, where Noke will then automatically hunt down and pair itself up to your Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone. Not only that, one is also able to name your Noke and even give it a photo if you so desire. Unlocking the Noke requires you to press the shank, that’s all there is to it. As long as your handset is within 10 feet, Noke will instantly unlock without the need to launch an app or remove your phone from your pocket or purse.
Let’s face it – parents of newborns, whether they are the first or the tenth, will still find it a challenge with each new addition to the family, especially when it comes to getting the little one to bed. After all, each of us do have a unique personality, and some of those traits are inherent from birth. If you have tried just about everything to get the tiny one to sleep so that you can finally catch some shuteye, and have not had much success, along comes the $249.99 Tranquil Moments Baby Monitor & Sleep Sounds that will allow you to monitor your child remotely through a smartphone or a tablet, even as it assists your baby to sleep.
All audio and video will be sent over to your Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or tablet so that you can monitor what is going on from afar. The app itself is available for free over on the App Store or Google Play, and thanks to integrated night vision, you are able to see your little one asleep all night long. This particular device comes with an adjustable camera angle with remote pan, tilt and zoom capabilities, where it can be placed on a monitor or table, or even mounted to the wall. Not only that, it can capture photos of your baby with the app’s snapshot feature. There is also a continuous play or 30-, 60- and 90-minute sleep timers that will let you choose the amount of time in order to play the sleep sounds program. Each purchase comes with a soothing kaleidoscope light and a white nightlight, and it will work on a WPA/WPA2 digitally encoded, secure home network, or Wi-Fi peer-to-peer without a home network.
Adults who need a similar tool to sleep without being “spied” upon can always settle for the Tranquil Moments Bedside Speaker & Sleep Sounds.

If there is one main reason that I simply cannot wait for wireless charging capability to hit the market in a big way, it would be this – that day would signal the end of having your chargers end up in a tangled mess. Well, with the $39.95 Tangle Free iPhone 5 Charger, you might not have the advantage of a wireless charger work in your favor in such a manner, but at the very least, it also solves the “tangled cable” issue somewhat. The Tangle Free iPhone 5 Charger sports a retractable cable which would allow you to charge an iPhone 5 without having the unsightly tangle of typical cords.
The cable itself is wound on a spring-tension spool, and it comes with a Lightning connector on one side while there is a USB plug on the other. All that you, the user, will need to do, is to pull on each end simultaneously in order to extend the cable to any length, all the way up to its full 39″ maximum. All that is required for the cable to be retracted back to its safety cocoon would be a second tug, and a smooth retracting action will commence The prongs of the included 2.4 amp AC/USB adapter will fold down for compact storage, which makes this ideal to bring around with you if you are rocking to one of the following – an iPhone 5/5s/5c, fourth generation iPad, iPad mini, and fifth generation iPod touch.
