The Mini Alarm Clock

The Mini Alarm Clock

For those that travel quite often, those hotel alarm clocks don't always seem trustworthy enough. Generally, if you actually attempt using the foreign alarm clock you spend the rest of the night sweating that maybe you set it wrong. This Mini Alarm Clock is portable enough to take with you wherever you go.

Sadly, this device seems about 10 years too late, since most of us just use our cellphone for an alarm when we're away from home. However, it does also have a built in flashlight and sometimes those alarms in our phones malfunction a bit. That or you may not have an annoying enough ringtone to wake you up in the morning. So, if you need an alternative this little clock is just the thing.

It measures 1” x 3” x .75” therefore it would be great to just toss in your pocket or in an overnight bag. It also includes a calendar, stopwatch and timer. All together it costs $25.

Just kidding, but I seriously couldn’t survive without it, however whenever I have to travel with my laptop, I have two choices, deal with the touch pad, or try and cram my TrackMan in somewhere and hope I don’t lose the trackball.

Funtrak Paintball Panzer now you can get even with the guy next door

Unless of course by some strange course of events you enjoy the company of your neighbors, regardless I am sure you can find some use for a motorized miniature tank that shoots paintballs. It has a 13 horsepower gas engine and it shoots paintballs.

Like the original, it has a high amount of torque for rough terrain and has the tank tracks to aid in the rough terrain navigation as well. The best part, its street legal, at least in the UK it is.
