Ever worry whether you remembered to close your garage door when pulling out of the driveway? With the Chamberlain MyQ Garage, you'll never have to worry again. Compatible with most major brands of garage door openers made after 1993, this smart box connects to the Internet over WiFi, and uses a sensor to tell if your door is open or shut. Which means you get the capability to open or close the door from wherever you are, receive alerts anytime the door opens, and even get a reminder if you forget to close the door when you leave. No more turning around to double check for you, Mr. Paranoid.
When you're out in the wilderness, there are few things more valuable than a good night's rest. Ensure you get one with the Helinox Cot One. This portable bed weighs less than 5 pounds, thanks to a super lightweight TH72M alloy frame that keeps you off the ground — away from rocks, moisture, and bugs/critters — and a 3 oz. Oxford Nylon platform that provides just the right ratio of support and softness. And since it sets up and packs away in less than a minute, you can spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time worrying about setting up your shelter.
Whole-home audio systems have always been a pain to set up — with unsightly wires running all over the place — and even wireless systems typically tether you to just one device at a time. But the Monster Soundstage Music System promises to solve those problems once and for all, letting you simply play music all over your house from any source on your network. You can queue up a track on your phone, add to the playlist from your laptop, and change the volume on your tablet (even play different songs on different units at the same time). And because they're made with powerful front- and rear-facing drivers, they deliver great sound across the spectrum. Available in October.
Smoking pot can certainly be fun, but eating it is almost always better. The Magical Butter MB2 Machine makes cooking reefer-infused treats incredibly easy. The steps go something like this: put some weed in the basket. Drop in some butter. Hit the butter button. That's pretty much it. It can also make oils or tinctures, is self-cleaning, and features a stainless steel and black build that won't scream "stoner!" if you happen to leave it out on the counter. We guess you could also use it to infuse stuff with other, more kid-friendly herbs like oregano or rosemary, but that seems like a huge waste of potential.
