Normally, we would not feature something that comes with a concealed weapon even though it is of the non lethal variety. However, this flashlight is a piece of cool technology that combines the flashlight, concentrated pepper spray and the added benefit of a Bluetooth and GPS connection so that the user is able to issue crowd alerts. This particular device has been designed and made by Tigerlight, the company that just happens to be behind some of the more popular non lethal devices around. It should be noted that this kind of device is not legal in many countries so it is best to check if this product can even be delivered to your country of residence.
A device such as this is going to come with serious specs, which are; it has multi modes – panic & SOS, Bluetooth & GPS for alerts, a tough polycarbonate housing, military spec pepper spray, variable spray pattern, it is also waterproof and it comes with a built in 250 lumen LED light. So as you can now see, this is more than just a flashlight. This device will be going on sale soon, but we do not know how much it is going to cost yet, but it can be pre ordered from just $30 for short while.

It is a fact that you can be burned by the powerful UV radiation from the sun even on a cloudy day and this can be a real problem for people and especially for children. The answer would be to cover up with sun screen all of time, but you cannot do that every day. The answer could be with a small bracelet that fits on the wrist called Luxes, it is a bracelet that accurately measures the amount of UV radiation exposure your skin is getting so that you need no matter what the weather is doing at the time, and it even works under water too!
The Luxes is a bracelet made from a rubber like material, with an insert that is made from a silicone based smart material that starts off light in colour and gets darker as the UV levels increase to alert the wearer that the UV level are reaching a point where protection is needed. If the wearer is using sun screen this can be applied to Luxes insert so that the bracelet is able to work out how much protection the sun screen is giving and more importantly when more sun screen is going to be needed in order to ensure that the skin remains protected from UV rays.
Once this goes retail it is going to cost around $40 or £25, but for a short while only it can be pre-ordered from just $25 or £16 for an April 2014 delivery.
