Nubee NUB8380 Temperature Gun

I bought the Nubee Temperature Gun from Amazon for US$13.59 (S$20) together with the Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure. It also doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopGo.

The Nubee temperature gun is a non-contact digital laser infrared thermometer that lets you obtain a temperature reading of a surface such as stoves, ovens, food and fish tanks.

Bosch GLM 35 Laser Measure

I first played with a laser measuring device in Tech in Asia‘s office where the events team use it to measure event spaces to plan for banners placement. I was amazed at how fast it is to obtain a measurement for a room. After that I never look at measuring tape the same way again.

Not saying that the measuring tape is not useful, I still think it is useful to measure smaller objects. Whereas to measure spaces between walls and pillars, the laser measuring device really excels.

SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets

Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of it’s tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.

There are two variants for the SoundTeoh Tower Socket. One is this and the other is the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 8 Outlets And 2 USB Ports and it costs S$89.90. A good thing about the included USB ports is the combined output of 4.2A which makes it capable of outputting 2.1A per port. Personally, I find it is not worth an additional S$20 if you have a couple of multiple USB port chargers lying around like the Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger or the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger.

Tool Pen

Tool Pen is a smart & versatile multi-tool, like holding a sleek pen. It features an unique Pop-A-Point design for bits replacement.

I backed Tool Pen on Kickstarter on the 9th July 2014 and it was funded successfully on 14th August 2014 after raising US$274,794 out of their initial goal of just US$7,000. That is 40 times the goal.
