As a kid, I couldn’t wait until that first snow day of the year because I wouldn’t have much else to do but play. As I got older, that changed because I was in charge of shoveling the longest driveway ever. I still enjoy winter, but there’s nothing fun about getting up early to shovel snow just so you can get your car out. With Plowz, you’ll never have to do that again because you can easily schedule a snowplow to the work for you. With the app, you’ll be connected to local plow providers who you can schedule a time to plow your driveway. For $25, you can buy the service that Plowz provides all directly through the app in the comfort of your own bed. If you’d like more information, you can visit them directly here.

With the holiday season upon us, it’s easy to just overindulge in all the good food and treats that we forget that there’s this thing called exercise. After a length of absences, it can be kind of difficult to get motivated to get back into the routine of things, and that’s what Goji Play wants to change. It’s a lot easier to stay on the couch and play video games, and with the Goji Play, you can turn your workouts into a video game.
Essentially, the Goji Play is a pair of controllers that lets you play via wireless sensors that monitors your activity while you work out. With an accompanying iPad app, it turns your once boring cardio machine into a video game. Check out the video below. For more information on the Goji Play, head on over to Blue Goji here.

Nowadays, everything is digital, and that seems to be a majority of the way people entertain themselves. Whether it’s computers or video games, many have become accustomed to always having these two particular machines in their lives. There was a time, believe it or not, that people didn’t have access to both and had to travel to arcades or carnivals to play games and enjoy themselves.
Back in the day, they had this arcade machine that I used to play called the skee ball machine. There wasn’t much to it, and it was really a simple way to collect more tickets so you could trade them in for the perfect prize. Well now, Restoration Hardware has brought the Classic Skee Ball Machine back, and it can be yours for around $7,000. It has the vintage look and feel of the original skee ball machines you or your Dad grew up with, so if you’re interested, head on over to Restoration Hardware here.

There was a time when people used to listen to their favorite music on vinyl, and there are still people like myself that still do. There’s just something about listening to a record that’s different than a digital download because the sound is better and truly the way the artist intended you to hear it. It also becomes a ritual when you put the needle to the record and just vibe out to your favorite jams. If you haven’t gotten a record player yet, the Orbit Turntable is something you should take a look at. With a price range between $180-$280, you’ll get a turntable with a fully-manual belt drive, a two-speed pulley, a 24-volt synchronous motor, and vibration damping feet that provide a great music experience. There are two options available, either the basic or plus turntables, so you’ll have your choice of features to choose from.

Whenever you travel, you have little options when it comes to listening to your music, having to rely on your headphones or the speakers on your laptop or smartphone. Speakers are always nice to have when you want to listen to your tunes when you’re outdoors or getting ready in the morning. Unfortunately, the speakers on your smartphone or laptop just don’t provide that good sound that many want, but there really hasn’t been a good portable option until now. The Soundmatters Dash7 Speaker is slim, weighing in at 7.1 oz and only 3/4″ in height, making it a nice portable speaker to take with you when traveling. It offers deep bass, a battery that lasts 12 hours, and can be used as a speakerphone for conferencing. The Soundmatters Dash7 Speaker costs $219 and is a nice speaker to have for people on the go.

Some other features that the Cobra iRadar has is that it also plots traffic and those pesky red light cameras that everyone loves. There’s a lot of benefits to owning a Cobra iRadar, but it doesn’t mean you have to be irresponsible when you’re on the road.
