While there are certainly plenty of options out there for guitar players looking to add something special to their sound, there's nothing out there quite like El Rey Effects Guitar Pedals ($150). Hand-wired and custom-painted here in Cincy, these pedals look as good on your board as they sound coming out of your amp. Choose from pedals like the Mexican-wrestling-inspired Lucha Fuzz, the Ouija-board-inspired The Mystic, and several more. Whatever you choose, you're bound to make bandmates jealous and audience-members move.
Improve your health by learning more about the way you rest with the Beddit Sleep Tracking Device ($99). While it's certainly not the first sleep monitor to hit the consumer market, it's one of the only ones that you don't need to wear when you sleep. The sensor comes in the form of an adhesive strip that goes underneath your sheets and connects to your smartphone over bluetooth — no armbands or headbands necessary. The iOS app tracks your sleep schedule, your heart rate, your snoring, and your breathing, giving you reliable data and tips that help you improve your sleep, and your life.
File this one under: gadgets for people with social media obsessions that may border on clinical disorders. Fliike ($390) is a real-life mechanical counter that displays the number of Facebook likes your page has. Simply plug it into a wall outlet, connect it to Wi-Fi, and sync it to your account to see (in real time) how internet-popular you or your brand really is. Display it prominently and you may just fill up all five of those digits. We're not totally sure what happens when you get to 100,000 likes — but we're thinking it probably explodes.
