Now Funding: the Zephyr Gaming Mouse

We’ve focused on reviewing some keyboards (primarily of the mechanical variety) but seem to have given their close compatriot – the mouse – short shrift. Well, one of the flashier ones we’ve seen hit as of late is the Zephyr Gaming Mouse.

Get seen and stay safe with the Lumos Ultra

As a kid, the very idea of a bike helmet just sounded ludicrous. Times have changed, and I’ve always got one on my head when I’m on the bike – as much to protect my own noggin as to be an example for my kids. Sure, it’s not the speeds I was at on my motorcycle, but still – safety is safety. One of the latest creations brings some clever lighting to the mix and is going by the name of the Lumos Ultra.

Training the brain with Mendi

If you recall when we first told you about the Mendi brain-training headset (over here) we said we’d be able to give you a hands-on review. While the campaign is closed, they are in an “In Demand” phase so you can still order one at a discount. So, here we are with our thoughts after spending some time with a prototype.

You can keep an eye on your heart with the WearLinq eWave

To be perfectly frank, so can your doctor. Over the last year, we’ve been seeing more devices that move from just simply tracking your heart rate (like most fitness trackers and many smart watches) to having a device that can actually provide medical diagnostics. The Apple Watch was one of the first, and now the WearLinq eWave is aiming to be the most recent.

Need help bolstering your session prep? Roll & Play can help!

It may seem like I’m putting up a lot of DnD / TTRPG stuff as of late, but it’s because I’ve been finding just a lot of great content out there. Not only that, these are great resources for a game that lends itself very, very well to being played with everyone remote from each other. One of the latest, that’s specifically for helping DMs with their prep, is Roll & Play.

If you want fire up the grill – or the smoker – ASMOKE has you covered

While I certainly have no problem going out in the snow to fire up the grill (one benefit of a propane grill), I know many think of grilling as a warm weather activity. Or, what if you really like the flavor that comes from hardwood charcoal? I like it too, it’s just tough to get going and then it runs forever. This project I came across, the ASMOKE pellet grill, seems to address a lot of that.

Keep those feet warm with HiLounge

I don’t know about you, but for me, slippers are all-but-essential for me, for most of the year. I just always managed to have cold feet. It used to always be moccasin-style ones, but I’d either wear them out, or they’d get a bit odorous. The longest-lasting pair I’ve had now are (don’t laugh) lined crocs, but these new HiLounge slippers look pretty interesting.

Take your game on the road with the Dungeon Box Pocket

Well, at least, when it’s actually ok and safe for you to take your game on the road. I seem to be featuring a number of TTRPG accessories as of late, and I blame it on the resurgence of the popularity of it as a game genre, as well as playing it with friends at work (virtually, these days). One of the latest to cross my crystal orb is the Dungeon Box Pocket.

For when it’s safe to head out, the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants are ready

It was back at the end of 2018 when I went hands-on with the slimmest “puffy” jacket I had ever tried (which you can see here), which was my introduction to the great stuff Outdoor Vitals was producing. Just recently, they started up a campaign for a new garment perfect for when we can resume outdoor adventures – the Outdoor Vitals Satu Pants.
