Gadgets Galore

T’is the season to shop those after-holiday sales and stock up on all the “must-have” items you didn’t get for Christmas.

Did your friends and family take the easy way out and give you gift cards for the holidays? Well, take advantage of those “after-Christmas” sales and pick yourself up a great new gadget. Or do advance shopping for next year’s holidays. Either way, you can’t go wrong with any of the nifty gadgets on the next few pages. We’ve given you just enough information to whet your interest, along with links to use for more information or to purchase that one thing that will make you laugh or that you “just can’t live without.”

The LED Faucet Light ($14.98, enter the words faucet light in the product search box) turns running water a bright blue. Turn off the water and out goes the light. It’s great for getting the little ones to wash their hands, perfect for running the water in the middle of the night, and just a hoot anytime. Faucet Light installs in less than a minute and easily connects to almost all standard household faucets. Since the LED Faucet Light operates off of batteries, Betty Budget does not have to worry about getting busted by the Kill-A-Watt.

The P3 International Kill-A-Watt ($20.95) allows you to connect your appliances and assess how efficient they are. A large LCD display counts consumption by the kilowatt hour, just like utility companies. You can figure out your electrical expenses by the hour, day, week, month, even an entire year. Monitor the quality of your power by displaying voltage, line frequency, and power factor.

Do you have a daredevil in your life? Well perhaps the ATC2K Waterproof ActionCamera ($129.99) is just the ticket for recording his or her antics. Weighing in at half a pound (with batteries), this hands-free action cam delivers full color digital video in 640 X 480 VGA at 30 frames per second. The camera works with most video editing software. Expandable up to 2GB, with a built-in SD card slot, the camera is waterproof up to 10 feet and mounts on helmets, bikes, racecars, dirt bikes and more. Oregon Scientific is interested in checking out videos captured with this product and provides point of contact information on their website. Who knows, maybe your recipient will be the next guest on an extreme sports cable show.
