  • This leather-adorned 3-in-1 wireless charging station will keep your Apple products eternally juiced

    With more and more of our everyday carry items needing a steady supply of power, it's worth considering some easy daily solutions for keeping all of those devices charged up at a moment's notice.

    If you're an Apple acolyte, that could mean you've got an iPhone, AirPods and an Apple Watch on you at virtually all times. Since absolutely nobody wants to be carrying around all the charging cables and other paraphernalia needed to handle multiple Apple power-ups, the Moovy 3-in-1 Wireless Fast Charging Station looks to take care of all that action from one simple elegant hub.

    With an easy plug-in, this docking station is ready to go, capable of feeding power wirelessly to an iPhone, an Apple Watch and AirPods, all at the same time. With up to 15 watts of power coursing through its innards, the Moovy is also very conscious of your tech and its well-being. 

    That's why this docking station is sporting some significant charging safeguards, including over-current, over-voltage, and over-temperature protection. Even as its providing much-needed power, the whole system watchfully protects your tech from overheating or any potential damage. It's even got a foreign object detector so it never feed power to objects that don't need it.

    Unlike many of their cheaper competitors, the Moovy has a sense of style as well. Made with premium materials, the pad has an attractive vegan leather covering for a more upscale appearance.

  • This 1080p pocket-sized projector may just be your new media hub at home or on the road

    Pocket-sized projectors have really grown up in the last few years. Previously under-powered and under-resourced, manufacturers have upped the game on these handheld projectors, with many now offering brighter, clearer images, increased functionality and connectivity as well as the ability to effectively become a portable home media center.

    And with movie theaters still mired in a very slow comeback from COVID-19, these mini-media hubs could soon be our new default when we want to go out and see a movie.

    One of those models attacking the boundaries of what these portable projectors can do is Lenso with their highly resourceful Lenso Cube. Whether you're out and about or just staying at home and ready to fire up a show or a movie, the Lenso Cube is ready to serve. 

    Even by modern standards, the Cube does surprise with how much is jammed into that ultra-compact 2-inch-by-2-inch cube that can easily rest in the palm of your hand.

    First, it's powered by a punchy 200 lumens LED lamp with a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours of viewing. Place it on a tabletop or counter or on a tiny tripod and the Cube projects a 1080p HD quality image up to 10 feet across with strong, sharp images during both daylight and night hours viewing.

    As for what's playable, the Cube connects to virtually anything. Whether you sync it via Bluetooth, WiFi, HDMI or USB, the Cube works in conjunction with almost any device for playback. It's even equipped to support Apple AirPlay, screen mirroring or to connect with over 3,600 apps in the Google Play Store to ensure you'll always have a way to watch. Of course, it's also packing 16GB of its own on-board storage if you just want to cut out the middle man.

    Even if you just want to listen to music, it's got its own speaker created by engineers from Harmon Cardin and Bose.

    You can make selections, adjust volume and more via the easy touch display or with the included remote control. And with a battery life of 2 hours, a life that extends up to 20 hours if you're only playing back audio, you'll always be ready for a viewing party from your couch to anywhere else you may go.

    Right now during the big Boing Boing Three Day VIP Sale, the Lenso Cube 1080p Pocket Projector that normally retails for $799 is now 20 percent off its already discounted total. When you use the code VIPSALE20 during checkout, you'll drop your price for this powerful projector all the way down to just $247.99.

  • Enter for your chance to win a Tesla Model 3

    The website Autowise recently asked fans on Twitter to name their top American dream car. And as it turns out, the U.S. has more ecologically minded car owners than you might think.

    In fact, drivers in 20 states said the dream car they salivated over the most…was a Tesla

    As that survey shows, the luxury electric vehicle has turned more than a few heads over the past 15 years. And it isn't hard to understand why, since the unassuming, yet ultra-sophisticated roadster is absolutely gorgeous.

    So, considering Teslas are so awesome, could we potentially get your attention by…I don't know, maybe…giving you one?

    Yeah, we aren't kidding. And if you take the very easy step of entering The Win Your Dream 2020 Tesla Giveaway, you might find yourself the lucky (we'd even say incredibly lucky) winner of a $40,000 2020 Tesla Model 3.

    And again…we're not kidding.

    As Top Gear put it, "Everything Tesla has done up to this point has built towards the Model 3… and it's been worth it."

    That's because the Model 3 is the ultimate intersection between gearhead performance, Mom-centric safety and everyone who wants to see the end of fossil fuels forever. For an electric vehicle, the Model 3 is a beast at the line, capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in as little as 3.2 seconds.

    The aluminum and steel frame is tested for maximum strength, with a roof crash-tested to resist four times the car's weight, or roughly the size of two full-grown African elephants. And off a single charge, the Model 3 can zip along for over 300 miles before you need a recharge.

    So what do you have to do to get this car in your driveway? Just put your name on the entry form, guys…it really isn't hard. And there's no purchase necessary either.

    Send it in, we'll draw a name and, if it's you, you're instantly beyond stylin'.

    Don't wait…you've got to have your entry in by Dec. 31 to be eligible to win. Good luck!

  • Brandless is making luggage to survive the road AND save the planet

    With most of the world more conscious than ever about their carbon footprint and the sustainability of the actions they take, it begs an important question — can air travel ever be green?

    Unfortunately, giant planes provide a giant amount of carbon emissions. In fact, one flight from New York City to Amsterdam produces emissions equal to over 2,500 loads of laundry and nearly three years of television viewing.

    So the answer to whether or not air travel can ever be environmentally friendly is…no. Probably not. 

    However, some forces in the travel industry are doing their part to try to combat the ill effects of major travel on the environment any way they can.

    Brandless is one of those companies. Last year, they unveiled their first line of baggage for travel, including their Carry-On Luggage Bag and their Checked Luggage Bag. It's a line created not only to help users and their stuff survive the rigors of getting from here to there, but to actually do some good for the planet.

    Both the 21-inch Carry-On and the 25-inch Checked bags are crafted from recycled PET plastic, with all their storage bags and interior linings made from those repurposed materials. In fact, a set of Brandless luggage is the equivalent of keeping 80 16-ounce plastic water bottles from ending up in the world's landfills or, even worse, our oceans.

    Of course, the true test of any luggage is how well it handles life and the road, and the Brandless bags are engineered to be super lightweight, shock resistant and flexible. Both pieces are protected by a 100% Virgin Polycarbonate hard shell casing, durable wheels for smooth mobility and reinforced corners to protect against any damage.

    Between the solid construction and their environmental impact, these Brandless bags can help you think more about your time on the road and less about the dent you're putting in the planet to get there.

    Usually retailing for $180 and $220 each, the Brandless Carry-on Bag and Checked Luggage Bag are both part of the big Boing Boing Three-Day VIP Sale. By entering the code VIPSALE20 during checkout, you can cut the already discounted prices on each piece by another 20 percent. That lowers the price of the Carry-On Bag to just $79.99 and the Checked Luggage to only $99.99.

  • Create, edit, and produce dynamic videos and music with the help of these training classes

    When we pick up our phones to shoot a video, most of us aren't looking to craft "The Godfather." We just want something that looks reasonably decent that won't be an embarrassment when it gets posted to YouTube or social media.

    But while not every video needs to reach Spielbergian levels of production, you might be surprised at how easy it is now to create a video that's virtually indistinguishable from a professional video shoot.

    And that level of craft doesn't require video editing software best suited for the U.S.S. Enterprise. In fact, the training in The Professional Video and Audio Production Bundle helps developing video editors use even free app tools to generate brilliant video with crisp, production-quality sound that will make your work really stand out.

    Over these six courses, students get a complete overview of techniques for creating, editing and producing dynamic videos and music. 

    And the video instruction even starts with a deep exploration of video editing tools that don't cost a thing. The Shotcut + Logitech Capture: Learn to Use Free Video Software course includes almost two dozen lectures on how to capture video or stream it using Logitech's own 

    Logitech Capture Software, then edit it with the open source Shotcut editing app. From filters and transitions to keyframes and titles to adding music, this is a solid introduction to basic editing principles on virtually no budget.

    Students also get exposure to a different video recording and streaming app in the Record and Live Stream Videos with OBS training. Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is also free and open-source software used to make pre-produced videos or even basic live streaming look fantastic.

    Of course, no discussion of video editing can ignore the popular Adobe Premiere app. Now, Adobe has expanded the brand to include the down-and-dirty Premiere Rush — and Edit Videos On Your Phone Adobe Premiere Rush is a full-scale tutorial on how this powerful mobile-based editing app operates.

    Even brilliant video can be thoroughly wrecked by bad, muddled audio, so the Audio Production Course: Record and Mix Better Audio explains the basics of music and voice recording. This training goes over the equipment you'll need as well as the tactics used by pros to make video productions, podcasts, music and other audio-driven projects sound amazing.

    Then, Audio Mixing + Processing Voice in Adobe Premiere Pro CC centers on how to professionally process voice recordings using Premiere Pro. And finally, Music Production in Logic Pro X : Audio Mixing for Podcasts is a complete guide to using Logic Pro X, a favorite of audio engineers and music producers everywhere.

    A nearly $1,200 package of training, you can delve into all this video and audio instruction for about $6 per course, just $40 with the current offer.

  • The UniLid is a one-size-fits-all cover that'll guarantee you never buy plastic wrap again

    Be honest. How many plastic lids are stashed away in your kitchen? No, seriously…how many? Go ahead and check that black hole of a cupboard down there and find out. We'll wait…

    Was the number up over 20? Over 30? More? Now the second question is…could you even guess at which containers actually fit half of those lids? Probably not. 

    And if you use plastic wrap or aluminum foil…well, you're not much better off. In fact, most U.S. households spend over $200 a year on wraps and foils. They then become part of the nearly 37 billion square feet of unnecessary waste Americans cast off every year.

    Time to straighten up and become part of the solution. The UniLid wants to send all those other coverings to the trash permanently — and they're just resourceful enough that it could happen. 

    Funded through nearly $1.4 million in pledges via Kickstarter and Indiegogo, the UniLid is a durable, reusable silicone material that stretches over any bowl, plate, dish or other kitchen container. The set comes in five sizes, ranging from an extra-small 2.5-incher to the extra large 8-inch cover.

    Each lid is created to wrap itself over a wide variety of sizes, shapes and materials. Not only does it cover your food, the UniLid's contoured design actually creates an airtight, non-spill seal to preserve its freshness and flavor.

    Whether it's leftovers in random Tupperware, the remains of a pot with pasta sauce, or even a half-finished can of soda, you can slap a UniLid on it and it's ready to go in the fridge for later. You can even pull one over a half sliced fruit and keep the rest moist and juicy.

    And if you aren't sure when you put a UniLid on something, the handy, rotating Day of the Week dial on every UniLid will help you keep track of when that food was covered — and when it should get tossed.

    Made from 100 percent food-safe, BPA free and FDA approved material, each UniLid is also microwave-safe and dishwasher safe.

    With a set of UniLids, you can start tossing out all those old plastic lids and clearing out cupboard space for good. Right now, you can get three full sets including all five sizes, 15 UniLids in all, for $10 off the regular price, down to just $39.99.

  • Pianu Pro turns learning the piano into a game and it's on sale for over 40% off

    Music is hugely liberating. And whether you love rock, classical, country, rap or any other genre, there's a real sense of accomplishment when you can sit down in front of a keyboard and hammer out a note-perfect version of a favorite tune.

    Of course, the only way to get to that point is usually after several hours of lessons with a trained instructor. But leave it to the good ole interwebs to come up with a new method of teaching you how to play the piano without it feeling like a chore or homework.

    The Pianu Pro approach can teach you how to play some of your favorite songs, doesn't require the use of an actual keyboard — and it's actually fun.

    With Pianu Pro, all you need is a web-connected device. Your keyboard shows up right on your browser, so you don't even need a physical instrument — although Pianu is compatible with a connection to almost any MIDI keyboard.

    If you're ever played a game like Rock Band or Guitar Hero, then the way Pianu Pro begins your introduction to the keys may feel a little familiar. Just pick a song you want to play like "The Pink Panther Theme" and Pianu will start guiding you through playing the right keys at the right speed. Pianu tracks how close you are to keeping up with the song and awards a score. If you're good enough, you advance. 

    Of course, this is a game with a purpose. As you work through 20 interactive lessons, you'll learn to play chords, how to read music and even work through six finger-strengthening tutorials so you'll be ready to scale even more elaborate compositions. 

    Before you know it, you'll be playing "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Shallow" or the Game of Thrones theme, employing all the skills and techniques of long-time piano players — and you won't have to sit through one boring lesson.

    With the current offer, you can save over 40 percent of the price of a lifetime of Pianu Pro access, a $275 value available now for only $159.99.

Whether you want to keep an eye on your home or children, secure your business or just make sure your actions are documented correctly, discreet, portable security cameras have never been more accessible or more powerful.

    The Tokk C2 Discreet Day/Night Vision Camera is an example of exactly how far portable cams have come as well as their versatility for capturing or even streaming video in virtually any situation.

    At just about an inch and a half in diameter, the C2 is about the size of a silver dollar and all but vanishes into its surroundings. Once activated, this portable, ultra-compact WiFi-enabled cam can start producing 720p HD quality video that will give you a crystal clear picture of what's happening.

    The cam connects to its own free iOS and Android app, offering you complete control to look in on your cam from virtually anywhere. In addition to the live streaming feed, you can also instantly record video directly to a microSD card. 

    The cam also sports a built-in mic, so you can always capture high quality sound along with your video.  

    Since you never know when you'll need to check in, the C2 is equipped with stunning night vision capabilities. Whether the cam is in a low light situation or even during full nighttime hours, you'll still be able to stream or record video from this unblinking eye. 

    And you've got loads of positioning options as well. The cam magnetically attaches to all metal surfaces, so you slip it on to the magnetic rotating mount or the magnetic pad included with the cam, or just use the also-included stickers to adhere it right where you want it.

    Whether you want to use the C2 as a home security camera, as a wearable body cam, or even in your car as a dash camera, the unit can run for up to 90 minutes on a single charge. That should be enough time to capture the important moments you need to preserve to safeguard yourself, your home or your family.

    Regularly $79, the Tokk C2 Discreet Day/Night Vision Cam is now available at almost $15 off, just $64.99 with the current offer.

  • Electrical engineering is one of the most stable professions around, and this training can help get you there

    When you were a kid, your mom and dad probably told you to grow up and become a doctor or a lawyer. Practical people that they were, your parents probably assumed that if you were able to scale the educational heights of those revered professions, you'd be handsomely rewarded with a hefty paycheck. 

    While you can certainly make a nice living in either occupation, there are other ways to lock in a six-figure salary — and they don't require extra years of schooling to accomplish it either. One such way is in the relatively unheralded, yet infinitely vital field of electrical engineering. 

     Even in a time of layoffs and economic downturns, there will always be a need for the guys who know how to supply power from Point A to Point B. With the training available in the massive Electrical and Circuits Engineering Certification Bundle, you can join that learned — and highly employable — group.

    The collection brings together 13 courses that can help even technical novices get up to speed on the hows and whys of circuitry and electrical power systems. From household wiring to power grids that feed cities, these courses offer the full scope of what you can do with some electrical engineering know-how.

    The Basic Concepts and Basic Laws of Electric Circuits course lays all your groundwork, introducing students of any level to the main terms, tools and concepts of electrical flow. The training goes over everything from current, voltage, power, and energy to some of the fundamental rules of circuitry including resistance, conductance, KVL, KCL, and more.

    Over the next dozen courses, the training segues through all kinds of electrical education, enabling learners to earn a background in areas like circuit analysis, induction machines, AC and DC choppers, inverters and beyond. 

    With a solid grounding in these foundational ideas, students can also explore courses focused on powering machines, both driven by either DC or synchronously-powered motors. There's also a set of three courses aimed at explaining three different levels of practical electricity projects, with training in small home systems to high voltage projects to even how power generating stations that power a city work.

    Each course in this bundle retails for $99 on its own, but by purchasing this complete bundle now, you can save hundreds and get all this electrical engineering training for just $59.99.
