No matter how much we might try and embrace the outdoors when away from civilization, there are times when you just can't go without power. For those times, the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator ($200) makes a perfect travel companion. This gas-free power source can refuel from the wall, car, or sun, and offers a pop-up handle, compact design, a 2 Amp USB port, a 12V output, and an 80 Watt AC Inverter. Plus, at just 12 pounds, it won't break your back if you decide to carry it into the bush.
See who's ringing your doorbell without even leaving the couch — or from miles away — with the SkyBell. This easy-to-install device connects to your existing doorbell wiring using only a screwdriver in just a couple of minutes. It's WiFi-enabled, and contains a button, day- and night-vision camera, microphone, speaker, and motion sensor, letting you see and communicate with whoever rings your door. It pairs with an included iOS app, letting you monitor your door from inside your home, at the office, or away on vacation, so you can choose whether to interact, or just let it ring.
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.
