I am on a quest for a great leather wallet. I really enjoy using my Garzini Essenziale Finestra wallet, but are there others out there that I might like better? When the Gadgeteer was offered an Axess leather wallet to review, I volunteered to do so. I chose the Axess "Superior" Extended Vegetable Tanned Leather RFID-blocking… Read More

This cool looking pen is the Acme Studio SCALE Retractable Ballpoint pen designed by Shigeru Ban. It has two functions - it is a pen and an architect's scale (a triangular shaped ruler containing multiple scales used by architects and drafters when drawing up floor/building plans back when this was done by hand). The pen… Read More

I have recently updated some of the items in my everyday carry bag (purse/gadget bag). In the past, I've carried a small purse because I like to carry as little as possible, but with all the gadgets I have accumulated over time, I needed to upgrade a few years ago to a larger bag. So… Read More

The EcoHelmet, designed by Isis Shiffer, is a recyclable, inexpensive solution designed to fill that need. It is made with "waterproofed [biodegradable coating lasts three hours] recycled paper in a radial honeycomb pattern" and one size generally fits… Read More

As much as possible, I take notes using Evernote, but sometimes I want to draw pictures and add diagrams and calculations to my notes. In those cases, it is easier to use a pen and paper. Orée has come up with the Stylograph, a pen that works with special paper to digitize all your handwritten… Read More

We live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas where most of the homes have only two car garages instead of three that you might find elsewhere (and they're tiny too - first world problems). Because our garage is so small, we are forced to park one of our cars in the driveway, which means… Read More

As a home educator, sometimes I have to teach while out and about. During such times, I carry my teaching materials with me in a backpack. Some inexpensive backpacks don't last very long while other more expensive backpacks last longer. One thing seems to be true of most of them - they all tend to… Read More

After reviewing the D-link HD WiFi Camera DCS-935L, the Zetta Z16 HD Wide Angle Intelligent Security Camcorder, and the DoorBird Video Doorbell, the overly sensitive motion detectors on the cameras of each device drove me crazy. Many security cameras also have subscription fees to store your recordings which I also find frustrating. I still wanted… Read More

Thus, it's not unusual that the Firewater Solar Bottle Lantern caught my eye. This unique 700-milliliter silicone water bottle (6.5" x 4" x 3.5") doubles as a lantern that when turned on… Read More

One of my children suffered from a febrile seizure many years ago (seizures that are brought on by a spike in body temperature over a short period of time). Apparently, these are fairly common, and to decrease the likelihood of a recurrence, the parent needs to monitor the sick child's temperature fairly closely and administer… Read More

I cut the cable cord about 15 years ago. We then purchased an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to receive our basic channels and have done well enough with that and services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. OTA antennas can be a pain in the neck because you are constantly trying to find the best spot to… Read More

Two years ago, I was sent the Antennas Direct ClearStream Eclipse HDTV Amplified Indoor Antenna (35 mile range) to review. It worked well in my living room where it still resides, but I did struggle to get it to tune in all our channels in the den. The Gadgeteer was contacted by Antennas Direct about… Read More
