Draw back the handle-powered medical-grade elastic tubing. Release the handle trigger and launch your snowball at the enemy opposing forces. They’ll retreat or surrender, begging for mercy. Of course, if the opposing team have the Snowball Slingshot as well, then you’re probably looking at a fair fight.
The tactical battlefield opportunities are unlimited with the Snowball Slingshot. For example, you can improve your stealthy snowball salvo attacks while you remain unseen by launching the snowball over the crest of a hill.
The Snowball Slingshot is made of durable, polypropylene and styrene-based plastic that withstands the will stand up to all that rigorous winter play. And if you’re not quite the sharpshooter yet, it includes a target for practicing your snowball slingshot shooting skills. Great winter fun for ages 8 and up.
Nothing is more inconvenient and uncomfortable than clearing the snow, ice and frost off of your windshield first thing in the morning when it’s freezing cold outside. The Heated Windshield Washer Fluid System from Alphatherm will make your life much easier with this ingenious heated fluid windshield clearing device. This system provides heated washer fluid to quickly remove frost and ice from your windshield.
The Heated Windshield Washer Fluid System connects to the car battery and the windshield washer fluid reservoir and its internal heating element warms the windshield washer fluid to between 143º F and 150º F in about 30 seconds. The heated fluid instantly melts ice (eliminating the need to scrape the windshield), helps clear frozen spray nozzles, and easily frees windshield wiper blades that get stuck to because of ice or snow. While driving, the heated fluid helps prevent ice from building up on your wiper blades and windshield wiper arms.

Installation is relatively simple and straightforward. If you’re mechanically inclined and like to work under the hood, installing the Heated Windshield Washer Fluid System should be a breeze for you. If not, any qualified local auto mechanic will be able to easily install this system for you. See the following video for an installation demonstration.
The Heated Windshield Washer Fluid System – Demonstration and Installation
The unit draws an average of only 2 Amps from your car battery while operating and heating the washer fluid. This is less than 1% of a typical car battery’s electrical power. And the system automatically shuts off when the engine is turned off, so no problems with battery drain.
The Heated Windshield Washer Fluid System is not only useful for clearing snow and ice off of your windshield. During the warmer months of the year, the heated fluid helps remove insects, road grime, and tree sap much more effectively than cool windshield washer fluid.
While digital pens that enable digitally recording text as you write are not necessarily a new innovation, these devices have become popular because this is such a natural form of data input. After all, many of us might not be that good at typing and keyboards, but most of us are quite comfortable writing with a pen. A new invention however is a digital pen that is compatible with the iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, most of the existing digital pens out there are not compatible with these devices. E Fun has just introduced the new Apen A4 Wireles Digital Pen which is specifically designed to be compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iOS devices.
In fact, the Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen also improves on what previous digital pens have lacked. That’s the ability to digitize what you are writing without needing a computer as a digital translation medium. The Apen A4 digital pen’s receiver can transfer your recorded writing directly to your iOS device. This is done through the 30-pin cable that’s included with the pen. Also, the receiver can store up to 100 pages of data if you don’t want to digitize and transfer all at one time.

The pen operates on a battery that can last up to 8 hours. It also comes with a photo sketcher feature that allows you to make annotations on computer images, and other annotations such as an e-signature on the many Microsoft Office applications and on digital pictures. Other features include sharing of photos on social media sites and sharing handwritten documents through e-mail.
This Apen A4 Wireless Digital Pen is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5, Windows XP or any newer versions, and iOS 3.0 and above. Although it is a digital pen, it works just as well on normal paper. The price is around $130 and is easily available at all national retailers.
If you are the type who collects gadgets and devices, you might have encountered the problem of having to charge them separately. This is time consuming and gets a little frustrating trying to find a source which allows them to be charged concurrently. Well, with the Fuse Powerslice, you can do that and the best part is that you will look mighty good doing so at the same time. You might have come across multiple charging devices but surely nothing that functions as well as the Powerslice.
For starters, it looks just a pizza with its round shaped base. Each Powerslice allows you to place a maximum of four “plates” for you to charge your devices. It is extremely functional because it saves space on the different charging devices that you might have had to purchase for the difference gadgets that you own. Each additional “plate” or “slice” fits in nicely to the base and allows you to do your charging concurrently.
The base retails for $39.99 and any additional slice would cost you around the region of $9.99 so you would probably be looking at a total of $80.00 for the whole “pizza set”. Still, this is a worthy alternative to long wires and different things charging at the same time. All you need to do is plug the base in, put in your slices on top and start charging. It is that simple! The Fuse Powerslice has to be one of the best multiple charging devices that I have come across in recent years. It is sleek, looks good and does your charging for you in no time.
The original Powerslice universal charging base is available below.
Magnet is one of nature’s many magical creations that we have grown to depend on in our daily lives. Whether it’s used as fridge magnets or as electricity generators, we spend most of our life reaping the benefits of magnets. This almost magical like material never fails to awe us with its limitless uses and supply. I’m pretty sure that playing with magnets at times can be just as fun as your Nintendo Wii or even your PlayStation3. What better way to play with it but with one of the many creations of Bucky Fuller, the Buckycubes.
The American scientist cum inventor, Bucky Fuller first came out with the spherical version of the Buckycubes called the Buckyballs. Unfortunately there were only a few things that you could do or build with the spheres but with the new Buckycubes, those limits are no longer in sight. Buckycubes is a desk toy that is made up of 125 unique earth magnets that are strong and durable.
The Buckycubes have no specific purpose and only offer you pure fun of mixing them up and creating buildings and other designs. You can twist, turn, bend, and stack these cubes as much as you see fit. These remarkable magnets can be purchased at a price of $25.00 and can be found at the nearest toy store or science store. These silver cubes can be quite hazardous due their strength and size so it is advisable to keep children away unless there’s an adult present to guide them.
