BioKnob – Biometric Door Lock

27 04 2008

This is one of those things I simply had to have for it’s weirdness factor.

I have 3 of them. I’m REALLY weird….

Gain a whole new level of security and convenience with the BioKnob, an advanced-technology, biometric door lock shaped like an elegant doorknob.

At the center of the outside knob is a tiny sensor that registers the pattern of users’ thumb or fingerprint patterns. Up to 100 users can have their fingerprints stored in the BioKnob for entry. Unobtrusive buttons and small display allow all programming and setting to be done at the lock with no external wiring or computer needed.

You never have to carry keys, or worry about losing them, you no longer have to hide keys in the yard or make key duplicates, and most importantly, there is no danger of strangers finding or stealing keys for unauthorized entry. The knob fits all doors that normally accept door knobs with latches and is extremely easy to install.

Dichroic Glass Aquarius Pendant

14 04 2008

Every once in awhile I find something irresistible. That happened here.
I’m an Aquarius, in case you hadn’t already guessed. My birthday is January 23rd, feel free to send presents.
Anyway, I found this and HAD TO HAVE IT. The glass has great depth to the colors. What exactly IS Dichroic Glass? Invented by NASA , The Glass is coated with multiple thin film layers, made by vacuum depositing a special coating onto a glass sheet. The process created a mirror like finish that reflects a specific color but when the glass is held up to the light, a different color is seen (transmitted) through the glass.
The amazing brilliance of Dichroic Glass can only be experienced first hand . The colors are very vivid, and the photos are only representation given the variances in photography and the fact that Dichroic Glass is most difficult to photograph due to the change of colors from various perspectives.

I’ve bought several different designs from these people and they are ALL beautiful. The customer service and shipping are also outstanding. Get yours today at Zula Surfing

RoadWired Skooba Skreener Laptop Bag

3 04 2008

The quest: Find a laptop bag that will hold everything you need to carry, Keep everything organized and keep everything safe.

Bonus points for purple.

It took some hunting, but I found one. The Roadwired Skooba Skreener Laptop Bag.

Inside is a great sleeve to protect the laptop, plenty of space for books, pads of paper, pens, cables, discs, cellphone, ipod, earphones, paper clips, tool kit, nail file, post it notes, cigarettes, lighters, money, ID, car keys and gum.

I actually ran out of stuff to put in it before I ran out of space! It’s all well organized AND the bag itself is light (it’s heavy NOW….but I can’t blame them). The screen print design on the front is in purple (there are other colors but like, who cares?). Life is good. Gets yours at Amazon.
