Apparently, this little gadget here can help you increase your fuel efficiency by up to 18 percent by regulating the flow of electrical current to the computer that controls the engine’s fuel injection and ignition systems. Except why wouldn’t your car’s manufacturer have thought of that first? Maybe this just regulates the flow of $80 into some smart car nerd’s pocket. $79.95 – Hammacher Schlemmer

Do yourself a favor and pop one or two of these puppies on your monitor. You’ll be glad you did. // Source

On the education side, Blipblox was one of the more interesting items on the floor. A synth designed for three to eight-year-old kids, the Blipblox has arrow paths on top connecting all the buttons to show the synth’s signal chain. The idea is to get children interested in synthesis basics early on. But, there’s no iconography on the Blipblox itself to hint at what the buttons do, so it’s hard to say how much kids will really learn as opposed to just mashing buttons. The company told me that if kids want to learn more, they can read the manual that comes with it, but that seems to defeat the product’s purpose.

The Transporter, developed by Connected Data, allows you to deliver your own cloud service for file syncing and sharing on easy to deploy hardware appliances that you own and control. In short, it allows you to manage your business’ files privately. Popular services like Dropbox and Box require users to navigate a shared drive to find files, which slows down efficiency and inevitably risks exposing sensitive business information. But Transporter removes the limitations imposed by those other services and allows employees to personally organize shared files and folders on their computers in ways that make sense to them, access those files from mobile devices, and sync data from home or on the road.

Between one of these and a couple of those monitor rear-view mirrors, you’ll be gold-ish. // Source
