Now, your gift recipient will never have another excuse for sleeping past the alarm clock. With the smart LED Bluetooth multicolored changing light system, you can control the color and the sound for that morning alarm. The low-watt light bulb acts as a real light, but offers sound and changing color options as well. It is truly customizable. On the other hand, you can download the app yourself and change the music to something a little less enjoyable for him and make sure your gift recipient gets out of bed quickly.
The Access Card is a stainless steel sheet with a quartet of lockpicks punched out of it, ready to be snapped out, used, and discarded. It comes with a feeler pick, ball pick, diamond pick and a hybrid, as well as a tension wrench. The last one can also be used as a handcuff pick and shim. Although the picks are thin, they’re remarkably durable under stress.
Facial recognition, built-in assistant, 4K sensor, HD recording, cloud storage. It sure sounds like it should be a phone, but that’s actually the highlight reel for the indoor Nest Cam IQ. It’s a sophisticated security camera that will feature Google Assistant and, not only could it help high-quality footage of intruders, it’s perfect for a whole range of other things: watch the kids, film and share, create time lapses, keep an eye out for friends/family about your home, or simply to use Google Assistant. As Nest so aptly puts it at the bottom of its site, “PS It’s beautiful.”

When you think CIA, one of last words likely to come to mind is “open.” And yet the U.S. spy organization has begun to lift the lid – albeit ever so slightly – in a bid to cultivate public opinion. In fact, the agency recently launched a retooled website, complete with YouTube and Flickr channels.
In the 1960s, the East German foreign intelligence service HVA issued this tiny camera, which takes photos of documents and uses a chemical process to shrink the text down so that a block of text appears no bigger than a period. This way agents could hide secret messages in plain sight. Boghardt points to an infamous incident involving microdots: Dusko Popov, a double agent during World War II, gave microdots to the FBI that mentioned German interest in Pearl Harbor. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover didn’t trust Popov, however, so he never passed the information to president Franklin D. Roosevelt.
This is a more retro-style handheld football game that builds on the formula of modern handhelds but with a retro twist. First off, the game is, in fact, “Electronic Football,” the game that was made famous and earned a small cult following in previous generations. However, this time, instead of being a cumbersome arcade-style machine or a very bulky tabletop box, it is a small and compact handheld portable game. It has the same basic and intuitive controls; it still supports one-two player modes and runs on 3 AAA batteries. Easy peasy.
