There are a lot of silly devices out there which may have useful purposes but just look really silly. The USB Forehead and Neck Cooler is definitely one of those devices that will make the user look like a complete tool! The “personal cooler” gadget is intended to keep your forehead or neck cool in times of heat but it just looks wrong. The cooler is attached to an elastic band that you wear around the back of your neck or on your forehead to help keep you cool in hot conditions. The device is powered by USB so perfect while under pressure at the office! The USB Cooler will keep your neck or forehead at a steady 22 degrees (72 Fahrenheit).
At least the band is adjustable so it can be attached to other parts of your body. Use your imagination as the cord is 47-inches long!! The USB Forehead and Neck Cooler is available for $77.

How cool would it be if you could walk through the dark without a flashlight yet have the ability to see most things that are lurking in the darkness of the night?

There are many people out there that freak out at the sight of insects. And I can’t really blame them, they looks pretty creepy. Although many of the insects we see are completely harmless to us, there are insects that will leave you in pain or even worse – dead. Next time you get a bug bit (hopefully not a killer bite), better hope you have the Bug Bite Thing on hand. This gadget is designed to ‘suck’ the poison right out! Too bad it doesn’t actually prevent bites. Once you know you’ve been bitten, remove the stinger if it’s still stuck in your skin. Next, you apply the small pump directly over the affected area and give it a few good pumps. As you are pumping, the device is literally sucking out all the poison it can which would otherwise cause discomfort for a few days. If it works, it’s pretty useful for hiking and camping trips. It’s an affordable little gadget at only $10.95 on Amazon.
