As Seen On The Today Show: 11 Wacky Products You Have to See to Believe
Good morning folks! I’m writing to you straight from the Big Apple where I spent the morning back on the Today Show. This time it was all about the wacky, the wild, and the downright weird. You’ve likely seen a few of these items on our site via The BritList, but here are the 11 crazy items I showed off on the show.
4. Hand Crank Emergency Cell Phone Charger ($60): This is the best thing to keep in your glove compartment. It’s a cell phone charger that works by converting a crank of your hand into power. One minute of cranking converts into 30-second bursts of battery for a connected phone. It’s great for placing that essential call or text when you are in an emergency and don’t have access to electricity. It works with most phones and can charge them all completely if the battery on the charger is also completely charged.
9. Electronic Guitar Shirt ($30): Are you ready to take your air guitar skills to a seriously rockin’ level? This t-shirt has an electric guitar built right into it. It also includes a mini-amp that, naturally, goes all the way to 11. So awesome. You can remove the guitar component for machine washing and you can play most major chords. We’re not totally sold on the idea of having to rub your own tummy to play tunes, but we definitely dig the technology behind it.
10. Botanicalls Tweeting Plant Kit ($100): Botanicalls literally enables your plants to call you. When your plant is hungry or thirsty, the device will give you a ring and let you know exactly what it needs. So cool! If you don’t feel like getting called all the time, it can also send you a tweet. Botanicalls is definitely taking plan nurturing to a whole new level. We also like how the device has a minimalist, geeky feel with no fuss. It looks like the inside of a computer!
All in all, it was a pretty fun morning on Today!
