I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be able to get away with this NOT camping thing. My little girl really wants to go spend a few nights in the woods and now that there are gadgets that you can cook on, keep away the bugs with and charge all your electronics with even when you’re in the wilderness, I’m running out of excuses.. at least I still have the sleeping on the ground argument, don’t I?

Not at all, welcome Brand Trunk’s new Hammock Compatible Sleeping Bag, made of a nylon shell with warm and cozy thinsulate fill this handy item gets you up and off the ground by wrapping around a hammock, thus keeping the base fill from compressing beneath you and your back from freezing, and it get’s you up and above pesky rocks and sticks that can make your slumber a living nightmare.

The Hammock Compatible Sleeping Bag is about 88 x 34 and features two full length 2-way zippers with a
draft collar and an adjustable-mummy type opening, it also has  an interior zip pocket so you can store a few goodies beside you and not have to climb in and out once you’re all warm and cozy up in the trees.

Grand Trunks Hammock Compatible Sleeping Bag will run you about 179 bucks and it does not come with the hammock, it weighs in at under 3 pounds is good to 32F and includes a useful stuff sack. It won’t be available for a few weeks anyway… so I suppose I am safe for the time being. Watch for it at grandtrunkgoods.com

Do you have a heart for the environment? After all, we do not pass down the earth to our children, but rather, we inherit it from them – so the onus is on us to make sure that whatever legacy we leave behind, it will be a good and lasting one. Sprint has worked to bring the LG Optimus Elite to the masses, where it offers an affordable and environmentally responsible addition that has eco-friendly attributes. It will continue from where the LG Optimus S left off, as the LG Optimus Elite will fit comfortably into just about any pocket without making a dent in your bank account as well.

Not only that, the LG Optimus Elite is also future forward thanks to integrated NFC (Near Field Communications) technology as well as support for Google Wallet, allowing you to use the LG Optimus Elite as an electronic wallet of sorts, letting you perform safe and secure purchases at hundreds of participating retailers. I am rather disappointed to see it come with just Android 2.3 Gingerbread though, as I would (and I presume many others of the Android camp) would have preferred to see Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running right out of the box instead.

Other hardware specifications include a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display, mobile hotspot capability that supports up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices, coming in Titan Silver and White shades. Not only that, the LG Optimus Elite will also be ULE Platinum Certified, which incidentally is the highest level of environmental performance that is recognized by sustainable requirements established by UL Environment and Sprint. There is no use of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), brominated flame retardants (BFR), halogen, beryllium, phthalates, and nickel in the production of the LG Optimus Elite, and it is also CarbonFree certified.

A 5-megapixel camera is there to record your favorite moments on the go, and you will also be able to benefit from 50GB of free cloud storage and sharing from Box. 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM rounds off the list of specifications. Best of all? It retails for just $29.99 on a new two-year agreement.

Painter Tom French just posted a number of new paintings in preparation for his upcoming exhibition titled Don’t Look Back at Zero Cool Gallery in London later this month. French’s acrylic works often depict couples in seemingly amorous relationships that create the optical illusion of a skull, pieces that walk the line between beautiful and unsettling.

There is one thing that electronics absolutely hate – and that would be mixing it up with water. Well, unless someone comes up with a waterproof device right from the production lines, you would pretty much have to take the proactive effort to take good care of your electronic device to make sure it does not end up sleeping with the fishes. The next time you head to the beach or pool and wished you could have recorded some videos or snapped some photos, make sure you have the £19.95 Aqua iPhone Case in tow.

As the name suggests, the Aqua iPhone Case will be able to ensure your iPhone remains free from water, sand, dust and snow, letting you have your fair share of fun, shooting photos and videos without worrying about drowning your device. It boasts of a transparent, touch-sensitive perspex skin that lets you access the touchscreen display, while protecting it from the elements.

 

Sagemcom Sixty Digital Cordless Phone

Most of us would probably not use a landline any more these days, considering how cheap mobile plans are, and not having the need for a landline in the first place. Of course, there are others who prefer to stick to tradition, but I can say for sure that the number of landline fans are dropping as each year passes by. What happens when someone decides to take the old and merge it with the new? An example involving the landline would be the £89.99 Sagemcom Sixty Digital Cordless Phone, where it will come in a sleek design with an orange or chrome finish, boasting retro sound effects and light effects on the round dial.

Definitely an attention grabber no matter which part of the room you decide to place it, the Sagemcom Sixty Digital Cordless Phone has an LCD touchscreen display that shows off the time and date, while letting you access a slew of functions in a jiffy such as your digital address book. It holds up to 150 names and numbers, and you can also view messages, adjust settings and see who is calling via caller ID on said LCD display.

Heck, it even has an integrated answering machine, capable of storing up to 24 minutes’ worth of messages. Beautiful as it may be, I still think it is overkill for a landline device.

Samsung intends to expand their Galaxy family of devices, and this time around, it would be the Galaxy Tab range that will see an increase in the family member count. We will have two new models of the Galaxy Tab 2 arrive, where one of them will carry a 7″ display, while the other has a far more comfortable 10″ display. For those who just want a pure portable media player experience, there is a couple of Galaxy Players for you to play around with before deciding on a purchase.

I am guessing here that Apple fanboys will not bother with what Samsung has on offer here, since they would pretty much want to stick to their iPad as well as iPod touch or iPhone. Nevertheless, the show must go on, so let us check out just what Samsung wants to share with the world this time around after the jump.

The Galaxy Tab 2 Series, as mentioned earlier, will be available in both 10.1″ and 7.0″ screen sizes, and both of them will not be found wanting when it comes to performance, thanks to the dual-core processor inside that runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. There will be an integrated IR blaster inside both tablets for universal remote capabilities, not to mention an easily accessible memory card slot so that it will be a snap for you to load your favorite multimedia content in a jiffy without having to open up the back side of the tablet’s case.

With the Smart Remote App and the aforementioned built-in IR Blaster, it will be able to transform the Tab 2 into a universal smart remote, letting viewers, even guests to your home, find their favorite shows in a snap. With more than 450,000 apps to choose from, easy access to your favorite movies and TV shows from Google Play or Media Hub, as well as Adobe Flash support, you know for sure you will not complain about the lack of entertainment in your life.

As for the Galaxy Players, they place the power of Android in the Hand without the need for Service Contracts. They will come in 4.2″ and 3.6″ resolution models, and will feature Wi-Fi connectivity. It can hook up to other devices via USB 2.0 or Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity as well, and you can also load your multimedia content via a microSD memory card.

Airplane Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style

On a domestic flight in 2010, artist and photographer Nina Katchadourian impulsively put a tissue paper toilet seat cover on her head in the plane lavatory and snapped a picture. Your first thought may not have been, “Wow, this is totally like 15th-century Flemish style portraiture paintings!” but that was where she went with it. She calls the series “Seat Assignment: Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style.”

While in the lavatory on a domestic flight in March 2010, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet cover seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror. The image evoked 15th-century Flemish portraiture. I decided to add more images made in this mode and planned to take advantage of a long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland, guessing that there were likely to be long periods of time when no one was using the lavatory on the 14-hour flight. I made several forays to the bathroom from my aisle seat, and by the time we landed I had a large group of new photographs entitled Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style.

Argentina-based artist Raul Lemesoff took an old 1979 Ford Falcon, ormerly belonging to the Argentine armed forces, and transformed it into a mobile library shaped like a tank. His portable project titled Arma De Instruccion Masiva, translated as Weapon of Mass Instruction, roams the streets of Buenos Aires, attacking its people with knowledge.

Start off the love for science at home with the $89.99 Amoeba Dual Purpose Digital Microscope for your little ones! After all, most of the things we do today are connected to science one way or another – the medicine we take, the computer we are using, the list is endless! To know if Junior has a penchant for biology, you might want to check out the Amoeba Dual Purpose Digital Microscope which lets you see things differently – very.

This dual purpose microscope is ideal for the home scientist, sporting high powered specimen slide viewing capability as well as a lower power so that you are able to check out stamps, coins, and other equally tiny objects (a microSD memory card, perhaps?) in detail. Heck, there is the option to detach Amoeba’s tube for convenient handheld digital viewing of large objects. There is also an integrated 1.3-megapixel camera so that the Amoeba is able to shoot photos or video in a jiffy for you to share with the rest. Each purchase comes with 8 prepared slides, a quartet of blank slides, tweezers, needle probe, and an eyedropper.
