Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Valentine's Day Tech

Axel is in for Sully this week as he is up in the Northeast celebrating a Patriots Super Bowl victory.



It's just days until Valentine's Day, and tech or gadgets of various types always make great gifts.
 
Rick and Axel look at some of the possibilities:



1.   SodaStream Fizzi One Touch - $129.99
www.sodastream.com


Eco-friendly and great tasting!
SodaStream prevents more than 3,700 single-use plastic bottles and cans from entering the waste stream to begin with. SodaStream presents a unique gifting experience for couples who love sparkling water but don’t like the space and money copious bottled waters take up.

With the SodaStream Fizzi One Touch, saving the world from plastic pollution has never been so easy – stylish – or refreshing. The sleek Fizzi One Touch is SodaStream’s newest model and carbonates tap water at the touch of a button. With three levels of automatic carbonation, you can perfectly customize your sparkling water and there’s no worry of accidentally fizzing all over yourself.
Try for 30 days... 2 year warranty
 

2. HEY Bracelet

www.heybracelet.com

With HEY you can send and receive a real human touch, no matter where you are. I saw this unique item at CES 2019 in Las Vegas and immediately thought of Valentine’s Day. The HEY bracelet lets you feel your loved one, no matter the distance. You get two bracelets, one for you and one for your sweetie! HEY bracelet is the first haptic bracelet that can send and receive a real human touch. Receiving a touch feels like a little ‘squeeze’ around the wrist and is comforting, instantly making you feel loved and closer to the person who sent it, no matter where they are. HEY incorporates advanced technology that communicates through Bluetooth with your smartphone. Your touch is transferred directly to the HEY app on your phone, and from there to the paired HEY bracelet anywhere in the world. The recipient will feel the touch as a gentle squeeze around their wrist. It’s a unique sensation, that can’t be compared to anything else. There is also a new HEY Touch coming out as well, that will let you stay “in touch” with even more friends. Order your pair of HEY bracelets for $115.
 


3. Cuisinart Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker: $99.95
https://www.cuisinart.com/prod ucts/coffee_makers/dcb-10/

Coffee the easy way!

Cuisinart's Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker introduces a new way to make authentic cold brew coffee – in as little as 25 minutes! Like traditional cold brewers, the Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker saturates coffee grounds in cool water, never exposing them to the high temperatures that release oils, which can create an acidic taste. Cuisinart utilizes a unique spin technology to circulate coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require, meaning that coffee is naturally smoother and sweeter.
 

4. Loudmouth Golf
