Gear and Gadgets for Summer Enjoyment
Summer Enjoyment Begins with Clever, New Products Like These!
We scour the interwebs for cool new products to feature here, and some of the products below will certainly be of interest.
A Water Powered Clock? Yes!
The Bedol water clock is the most accurate, environmentally practical, hassle-free clock of its kind. The Water Clock works 100% on natural power. No batteries, no chemicals, no electricity – no pollution. It keeps perfect time without requiring batteries or electricity. My only beef with this gadget is that is very difficult to set the time, it uses a cheesy little switch setup that’s annoying…I never could set the time correctly.
You don’t even need to wind it up! Just fill the tank with natural tap water and you’re set. (You won’t even lose time while changing water, thanks to the built-in memory chip!) Once you figure out how to set the time!
The Bedol Water Alarm Clock is shaped like a drop of water. The Bedol Water Clock technology converts ions in the water into clean energy power. The built-in memory chip remembers time so you don’t have to reset it. Water won’t need to be replaced for 6 months or more.
Reduce your carbon footprint by keeping time with tap water. Time-powered by water, join Bedol in another leap forward towards a greener planet.
Bedol Water Clock $19.99

Have a Backyard Dance Party with iLive Speaker
iLive’s Bluetooth Tailgate Party Speaker is the ultimate travel speaker. It not only has a room-rocking bass, 60-foot wireless range, and microphone input but has color-changing lights and roller wheels for easy transportation. Now, you can bring the party with you wherever you go.
This large speaker doesn’t have the high-quality sound of the more expensive models we have tested, like the Soundcast VG5, it can be a bit tinny if you turn it way up. But for most people, the price point and the sound will suffice to make your party plans go ok. The VG5 is a $500 unit, this is much less expensive.
iLive’s Bluetooth Tailgate Party Speaker $69

It is designed to provide next-generation high-quality Wi-Fi services. Additionally, this router is equipped with eight independent power amplifiers for enhanced signal strength.

Wi-Fi 6 will automatically assign the most suitable transmission path for all your devices, both in time and at speed.
The Reyee RG-E5 provides one 10/100/1000Mbps WAN ports and four 10/100/1000Mbps LAN ports, with a maximum access bandwidth of 1000Mbps.
