Mini Bug Detector

Shhh…You know they’re listening.

Are you paranoid? Have good reason? The Mini Bug Detector offers protection against wireless microphones and transmitters. This device is perfect for securing homes, offices and hotel rooms. It has a LED signal strength display and audio tone that help pinpoint the precise location of bugs. The audio alarm can be turned off for discreet sweeps, while the sensitivity adjustment eliminates false alarms.

The Mini Bug Detector features wide range circuitry that enables it to detect concealed transmitters operating on frequencies from 50 MHz to 3 GHz. The power to expose most high frequency transmitters, as well as more common VHF and UHF bugs, is now in the palm your hand. You were never paranoid…until they started coming after you…

A .22-caliber pistol with a high-tech safety feature. Made by German company Armatix, the pistol will only fire if it is within a few inches of a special wristwatch, which sends a “wireless arming signal” to the pistol.

An LED Light at the back of the pistol flashes green to signify that it is unlocked; the LED turns red when the arming signal is not detected.

The Armatix website describes a highly similar concept for a gun, but adds that not only will the gun be tied to a specific wristwatch, the wristwatch will be paired to a specific fingerprint as well. I’m not sure if the actual gun-watch combo has this functionality. A limited edition version of the high-tech pistol will be available starting next month for €7,000 (approx. $9,700 USD).

Armatix will eventually offer higher caliber guns, like this colossal revolver, as well as rifles and shotguns.

Travel internationally while keeping your identification secure

As of October, 2006, the US state department issued rules that dictate all US passports must have embedded RFID tags. The chips are designed to hold biometric data for passport holders, but are not designed to track your movements… Or so they say…

The RFID Blocking Passport Billfold has room for you passport, and also has room for four credit-cards, your driver’s license, and a pocket for your folding money. Nice!

your cash, business cards and your ID. Don’t get caught unprotected.

Apparently there’s a whole bunch of guys in the world who wouldn’t mind getting attention from Japanese females in the world. This best-selling Hoodie features clear, clean text and a message that is perhaps best translated as “Now accepting applications for Japanese girlfriends.” Features a nice red “rising sun of Japan” in the design. You never know what conversation this T-shirt could start, or where it might lead!

There is a T-Shirt as well.
