For those of us in Northern climates, there’s not much worse than standing outside waiting for the bus in the freezing cold. Sometimes your coat, scarf and gloves just aren’t enough to keep you warm. So I’m pleased to tell you about the latest in portable fireplace technology, the iYule.
While it actually won’t keep you toasty, the iYule will get you thinking warm thoughts. Just load the 30-minute video loop onto your iPod and you’ll have a tiny little virtual fireplace in your hands.
The iYule video costs between $5 and $10 depending on the video formats you need. If you think that’s a bit expensive for a single video clip, keep in mind that the creators of the iYule are donating a portion of their profits to charity. For the cheapskates among us, you can probably find a video clip of a fireplace over on YouTube to achieve the same result.
