Helm Audio DB12 AAAMP Review: This THX-Certified Mobile Amp Brings the Power

Helm Audio DB12 AAAMP Review: This THX-Certified Mobile Amp Brings the Power
When it comes to the headphone audio that comes out of mobile phones, laptops, and tablets, the sound quality is generally decent, but rarely what I would call “audiophile-grade” or particularly loud. Using an external amplifier can help improve overall sound quality and volume, and HELM Audio’s DB12 AAAMP aims to do just that.

Vizio Elevate Soundbar Review: Thumbs Up for This High-end Atmos Sound Bar

Vizio Elevate Soundbar Review: Thumbs Up for This High-end Atmos Sound Bar
I’ve had a number of different home theater audio systems in my living room over the years, from component receiver/amp/speaker setups to one-piece soundbars. Each kind of sound system has its pros and cons, but my general feeling is that the best-of-all-worlds systems include a multi-channel soundbar with surround speakers and an external subwoofer.

Super Mario Bob-omb Toilet Paper Holder Is Ready to Blow
If there’s something you never want to happen in your bathroom, it’s an explosion, except maybe one of those fizzy bath bombs in the tub. But if you’ve played enough Super Mario games, you know how to deal with a bomb, as long as it’s Bob-omb.

Dragon’s Lair RepliCade Review: Tiny, Accurate, and Still Tough to Beat

Dragon’s Lair RepliCade Review: Tiny, Accurate, and Still Tough to Beat
I basically grew up in video game arcades back in the 1980s. So it goes without saying that I have a place in my heart for classic arcade games. Among my proudest possessions is a full-size custom arcade machine that can play all kinds of retro games from the 1970s until the early 2000s.

PowerUp 4.0 Is a Remote-controlled Paper Airplane on Steroids

PowerUp 4.0 Is a Remote-controlled Paper Airplane on Steroids
When it comes to paper airplanes, they usually don’t stay airborne for more than a few seconds. The guys at PowerUp weren’t satisfied with that, so they set their sights on making motorized paper airplanes. We’re now on the fourth-generation of the PowerUp, and it’s the most capable version yet, enabling paper airplanes to fly better and further than ever.

This Meat Puzzle Is Made of Literal Butcher Blocks

This Meat Puzzle Is Made of Literal Butcher Blocks
Thanksgiving is over, so I’ve officially had my fill of turkey for the year. Next time I have meat, I want it to be a nice hearty steak. Perhaps a rib eye or a New York strip.

There’s a Doraemon Time Machine Bed for Your Cat

There’s a Doraemon Time Machine Bed for Your Cat
If you’ve ever followed the Japanese anime series Doraemon, you know that the robotic cat’s primary means of transportation is a rather silly looking time machine. While we humans may never get a chance to take a ride to other points in time, your cat is ready to go right now.

The Hot Cookie USB Mug Warmer Looks Like a Giant OREO

The Hot Cookie USB Mug Warmer Looks Like a Giant OREO
So how do you eat your OREO cookies? I like to carefully disassemble mine, scoop the creamy filling out with my bottom teeth, then eat the two chocolate cookies individually. The way I figure it, it’s like eating three cookies for the price (and calories) of one.

Jenga Master Stacks 518 Blocks on a Single Vertical Plank

Jenga Master Stacks 518 Blocks on a Single Vertical Plank
When I play Jenga, I’m lucky to get maybe 10 levels high before the whole tower comes tumbling down and scattering pieces all over the floor. But there are some serious Jenga experts out there who can do much better.

Memento Mori D20 Dice Are Made from Human Bones

Memento Mori D20 Dice Are Made from Human Bones
When we die, some of us want to be cremated, while others want to be buried, and a select few people want their body parts to be used for medical science. But I’m not sure many people would raise their hands and say “yeah, please turn my bones into dice so someone can play D&D with them.”

RoboRock H6 Adapt Cordless Vacuum Review: A Portable Powerhouse

RoboRock H6 Adapt Cordless Vacuum Review: A Portable Powerhouse
I live in a 3-story, single-family house with my wife and two rather large, hairy dogs. So the amount of dirt, dust, and dog hair we accumulate around here on a daily basis is way more than should be permitted by law.

This Dragon Sits on Your Pressure Cooker and Breathes Steam

This Dragon Sits on Your Pressure Cooker and Breathes Steam
InstaPots and other pressure cookers have become insanely popular in recent years, with millions of households putting what basically amounts to a bomb on their kitchen counter in order to cook dinners more quickly. Thankfully, these heated and pressurized vessels have a pressure-relief valve on them to let steam out, making a catastrophic failure far less likely.

This Retro Flip Clock Looks Like an Old TV Set

This Retro Flip Clock Looks Like an Old TV Set
These days, lots of people are replacing their bedside clocks with smartphones or other mobile gadgets which keep time. But there’s something about being able to just open an eyeball in the middle of the night and glance at the time that makes me still prefer a standalone clock.

Baby Yoda Desktop Light Is Adorably Bright

Baby Yoda Desktop Light Is Adorably Bright
The Mandalorian returns this week, so there’s no better time to show your appreciation for the popular Star Wars series. And what better way to celebrate your love for the show that basically made Disney+ than to bring Baby Yoda into your home or office?

The Home Depot Sells an Elvis Squirrel Statue

The Home Depot Sells an Elvis Squirrel Statue
When I make a run to The Home Depot, it’s usually because I need some 2x4s, drywall compound, or drill bits. So go figure that while I was shopping on their website for some completely unrelated hardware, this thing popped up on my Facebook page later in the day.

Eaglemoss Gold Enterprise-D Is for the Shiny Generation

Eaglemoss Gold Enterprise-D Is for the Shiny Generation
Perhaps it’s because The Next Generation is my favorite Star Trek series, but I have a particular affinity towards the NCC-1701-D version of the U.S.S. Enterprise that was featured on that show. If you’re a fan of TNG like me, and also like shiny things, then check out this golden model of the starship from Eaglemoss.
