The MeCam is a personal autonomous micro unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that would automatically follow you while avoiding obstacles, and that could shoot and stream video of you using an onboard camera. It features an ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1 GB of built-in RAM, an SD card slot, a camera, and is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled. With these hardware specs, the bot would then be able to take videos of you as you move around, going higher or lower at your command, and streaming video to a paired iOS or Android mobile device. So in all, it’s not a creepy device that you’re neighbors need to fear at all.
If you’re looking for a quality, outdoorsy, guy’s-guy type of gift, the Kaufmann Mercantile EDC Kit, which is made in the USA, will work great. These small, multi-use tool kit comes with pry bar, screwdrivers, precision tweezers, waterproof lighter and a titanium key ring. Our favorite tool has to be the waterproof lighter which is water and air tight, refillable with regular lighter fluid (not included), comes with a key chain attachment, stays lit until blown out, and is convertible to a waterproof pill carrier. Plus, all the tools weigh less than 2 ounces combined and come with a very light, very strong titanium split key ring. Also cool is how “the company that makes these keychain tools also supply goods to the U.S. Military, local police forces, firemen and serious survivalists”.
The soft-touch Musubo case for iPhone 4 & 4S looks a bit reptilian. Especially in the green colors. If you’re not down with the lizard look, there are 5 other shades to choose from.
Think of the fun you can have in the Monday meeting with a laser pointer controlled by your iPhone. Plug the Smart Dot unit into your headphone jack, download the free app, and boom, you’re instantly putting a red dot on the bosses bald spot. And if you actually want to use it for work, put it in Presentation Mode and link it up with your PowerPoint or Mac KeyNote application for remote control scroll.
This is a battery charger designed specifically for recharging regular alkaline batteries. In just 90 minutes it’ll safely recharge the AA & AAA batteries you usually throw in the trash. This was long overdue.
Why didn’t we think of this?
Invented by industrial design student, Jake Frey, NeoCover is a light switch cover powered by neodymium magnets. We’re not talking one or two keys here. The NeoCover is powerful enough to hold up to 27 keys. Hell, it’ll even hold your tools (as pictured above). It’s also safe to use with flash drives and other electronic products.
We give you props, Jake.
We’ve seen several GPS-enabled golfing assistants, but the trouble with those is often simply remembering to bring them along. The Garmin Approach S3 alleviates this problem by taking the form of a touchscreen GPS watch, giving you handy access to data for over 27,000 courses worldwide — including distances to doglegs, layup points, and pins — a rugged, waterproof body, and a “digital caddy” to keep track of your strokes.
