Cardo scala rider G9 – Can you Hear Me Now?

Posted: 26 Apr 2012 08:21 AM PDT

My husband and I both have our motorcycle licenses, and it was my dad that taught me to ride, and while it makes me a little more nervous than it used to, I still love the idea of a bike… the wind in your hair and the bugs in your teeth. But if we all go out together, its just so hard to communicate – even with some of the better helmet systems out there.

That is until now, let me introduce you to Cardo scala rider G9, Cardo Systems Inc (a Pittsburgh PA company) specializes in the design and development of state of the art communication and entertainment systems for motorcycle helmets and the G9 is no exception. Featuring unparalleled intercom connectivity and wireless access to mobile phones, GPS and MP3 music, this super slim, compact headset installs in minutes and lets you talk to up to 8 fellow riders almost a mile away.

But that’s not the best part, the G9 also allows spontaneous connections to other scala riders using the G9 or the G4, so waving becomes a thing of the past as this system lets you reach out and actually say hi! Other unique functions include “Flash Pairing” where users establish connections by bumping two of the G9′s together or Hot Dial calling  or “Group Signal” that lets a rider initiate alerts to other members of his crew and they even have a Cardo Community, Heck! Its like social networking on wheels.

So make calls, get GPS directions, plan meet-ups, or just listen to the built in FM radio, the G9 will help you do it all. The G9 provides about 12 hours of talk time and 7 days of standby. It can be charged in 3 hours and is compatible (within limits) with the entire scala line. For more info please visit Cardosystems.com

Love all things Dr. Who?

Targeting serious collectors for all things Dr. Who, the TARDIS 4GB USB flash drive is pretty much self explanatory – it will come with 4GB of internal memory for you to stash all your favorite essays on Dr. Who as well as script breakdowns and analysis, and there is also a blue LED light which kicks into action whenever the TARDIS 4GB USB flash drive is plugged in.

Not only that, this little puppy will double up as a keyring, allowing it to follow you wherever you are, so much so that you need not worry about not having a USB flash drive when you need one during the most random moments.

Is it a Boat? a Plane? NO, it’s a Submarine

Posted: 26 Apr 2012 05:58 AM PDT

I find it completely amazing the types of things one might be able to experience, provided they have several million dollars of disposable income lying around in their pillow cushions, I guess a bit more understandable is the sheer number of companies out there ready to cater to those folks with that kind of money.

When I have my first splurge worthy few million, I’m heading off to Hawkes Ocean Technologies for the new Deepflight Merlin. The lightweight, private, luxury submarine, is dubbed the Learjet of the deep. This high-performance, positively buoyant 3 passenger vehicle is equipped with state of the art, patented safety systems and extends the overall capabilities of scuba, following SCUBA rules, while offering the unique experience of underwater flight.  

Unlike most conventional submersibles which use ballast to sink in the water, the DeepFlight submersibles use downward “lift” on the wings so you can actually ”fly” down to depth. Think about it, you and two of your closest friends can sweep over colorful reefs, banking turns while searching for sunken treasure or simply enjoying the view. Flying and gliding through the undersea world, all this, and you never have to worry about falling out of the sky like a shot duck.

Hawkes Ocean Technologies offers a complete range of submersibles that can dive from the surface to the deepest parts of the ocean. Ultra-lightweight and compact, all the DeepFlight submersibles can be operated from your boat or from the shore. Personally, I’m going with the boat option, might as well grab myself a yacht while I’m at it. To check out specs or pricing please visit Deepflight.com and I’ll see ya around the reefs!
