Cooking is one of those tasks that’s necessary in life. Sure, you can get takeout every night, or try to get someone else to cook for you, but the former gets expensive, and the latter can be hard to come by (unless you have a really awesome spouse). One of the most simple dishes to make is spaghetti. All you do is boil some water, dump in the noodles, and warm up the sauce. However, if you’re easily distracted, you might accidentally let the water boil over, and that can cause a mess. If that sounds like something that happens to you, then I’ve got just the thing.
The Boil Over Safeguard might seem like a silly thing to need in the situation I described above. However, imagine that you’re trying to prepare a more complex meal, and you have a couple of little ones running around. It becomes much easier to accidentally let the water get too hot, without giving it a few needed stirs. This silicone lid helps prevent spillovers but widening and extending the opening of the pot you’re using. It sits down snugly on the top of the pot, and has a small opening near the center, which actually sits lower than the outer rings. So if your water does get a bit out of control, it’s not going to spill over the sides, but simply bubble up onto this silicon lid.
The Boil Over Safeguard fits any pot or pan with an opening between 6” and 10” in diameter. It is made of silicon which can withstand heats up to 400 degrees, and can be used in both the dishwasher and microwave.
Gaming peripherals are dime a dozen out there, but how many of them actually make you feel as though your gaming skills have been augmented with the right peripheral? It might take some time for you to pin down the right kind of joystick, gaming mouse or racing wheel before you know that this is the right “deal” for you, just like how your gut feeling tells you that the girl you are currently dating is the one whom you want to be the mother of your children. Mad Catz, a name that is well established in the gaming peripherals industry, has just announced their latest device that they call the Force Feedback Racing Wheel, which is a premium quality racing game controller that will target the soon to be released Xbox One console.
Specially designed to deliver a highly authentic gaming experience, the genuine suede leather steering wheel has a whole lot more than meets the eye. Underneath the chassis, you will find a slew of technology, including twin next generation Force Feedback motors as well as a luxury CNC anodized aluminum wheel face which can be easily removed from the wheel base as and when required, should the gamer wish to replace or upgrade it sometime down the road.
Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc., said, “As we approach the Holiday season, excitement continues to mount for Xbox One and we’re pleased to announce our second premium product for the console. We have previously commented on how the enhanced performance of Xbox One opens up additional scope for innovation and believe that the precision engineering and customization of the Force Feedback Racing Wheel will appeal to the passionate racing gamer.”
Mad Catz’s Force Feedback Racing Wheel should be the right tool to use when titles such as Forza Motorsport 5 rolls out for the Xbox One, and each purchase will be shipped alongside a fully adjustable Pedal Set, giving you the freedom and allowance to adjust the spring resistance, height and spacing on the gas and brake pedals, so that you end up with the most comfortable gaming position possible, leaving no more room for excuses for your slack driving.
I would like to take a quick poll here – how many of you out there actually have the fear of needles, and hate going to the doctor to get your shot? If you have answered in the affirmative, then you would be in good company with a number of children too, who happen to share the same fear as you. There is something quite unnerving about having a really large needle inserted into your body, although thinking about it as some form of acupuncture might help a wee bit. Here is one device that has definitely proven itself in trials and tests – the Buzzy.
Just what the heck is the Buzzy, you ask? Well, the Buzzy happens to be a unique and new device which is capable of relieving the stinging pain of shots, and it is currently assisting children and adults around the world by offering them an instant pain management solution. It was invented by a mom/pediatric ER physician, where it is reusable to boot, blocking pain using the natural method by merging a therapeutic massager and an ice pack. Kids as well as parents are indebted to this vibrating bee, where it would go a long way in helping out with needle phobia, injection pain, and burning. Not only that, a fair number of parents also use Buzzy when it comes to scrapes, itching, bee stings, and splinters.
Buzzy is effective in its nature because of the physiology called Gate Control. Larger cold and vibration nerves will crowd out smaller pain nerve sensations whenever both are felt simultaneously, and if you want a more natural example, imagine running a burn under cold water, and you’ve got the picture. Buzzy will make use of low tech components in order to address the issue of needle pain and needle phobia in an efficient manner. If you are interested, the palm-sized Buzzy will retail for $ 39.95 a pop.
