Interesting Iphone Additions

The age of Star Trek continues to mature. Here are a few interesting additions to an I phone that will collect various data inputs.  Keep in mind, I do not own these items and that I use this a more of a note taking location for myself then to promote any product.

Scio    This company has an interesting tool that reads the spectrum light from an Item.  There is a Database of chemical makeups that can be referenced to identify what you are looking at.  It can also tell you some nutritional information of your foods. It may not know everything yet but the database of items is continuing as more people us the meters and share the information they collect.  I have not used this item but would love to try it, I think there could be a lot to learn from a device such as this.

Lapka   This company has an interesting product, it is really a group of individual sensors that can store together.  I like the mix of sensors but I am not big on the fact that there are individual parts.  I have known about this product a few years so maybe in the not to distant future a smaller single device could come to market.

Supermechanical  Now I like to cook and have been looking for a temperature probe to provide accurate measurements when cooking, baking, canning, and I want to try making my own candy too.  I hope to pick this up sometime soon, if and when I do Ill change this to reflect what I learn and think of the product.

FLIR Now this I wish was just built right into the phone.  It is a near Infrared camera that sees heat.  the nice thing about this is that it is a case and battery pack as well.   A little pricy but interesting.

Node This is a modular group of sensors.  there is the base and various sensors can be individually used.  This unit is more industrial then the lapka and does different functions great idea but still not an all in one solution to collecting data on your environment.

Interesting Iphone Accessories

I have been looking for some new and Interesting accessories for my Iphone 4s and so these seem like some interesting options.  I do not have any of this items as of now but may get some of them in the future.  I really like the Idea for The Ultimate Iphone case by Snow Lizard Products, Not only is a protective case rated for total underwater submerssion, but its got a battery and solar charger incorporated in the design.  I am not sure what the charging capacity is for the solar planel but it should come in handy when on an outdoor trek. :  For those James Bond types thre is the ultrasmall headset from Brick house security.  Its small and virtually unnoticable in the ear canal. :

There are also a couple watches that are comming out for the Dick Tracy fans, the both recieve bluetooth infromation from your phone like who is calling, what songs are playing and of course the time.

Extreme Groceries

I thought just for fun and games since….Gas prices are stable, Food Prices are stable, and an Ipod2 is twice as cost effective as the Original Ipad, I would try this Extreme Coupons thing.

I have been using coupons for years when I could but I was watching the new series call Extreme Couponing: on the Discovery Channel.

I will start out by using the links to the regional shopping stores:

Cub Foods:

Rainbow Foods:

Kowalski’s Markets:

Festival Foods:

Knowlan’s Food Markets:

Len’s Family Foods:

Family Fresh Market:

County Market:

Aldi Foods:

River Market Co-op:

Nilssen Supervalue:

Nash Brothers Trading Company:

Our Family Store Brands:

Trader Joes:

Now this list is probably now where near complete, and there are deals to be had at places like Target and Wal mart as well as some of the farm stores and convience stores.
