Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 - Tech from 2018 Surf Expo

It's been a cold and Icy winter in Atlanta, but Rick is here to warm things up.

He saw everything "sun and fun" at the Surf Expo in Orlando , which wrapped up last weekend.

What were some of Rick's Picks from the Surf Expo?

Have a listen:



1. 4 Ocean Bracelets
www.4Ocean.com

4Ocean has made it their mission to preserve our oceans by removing ocean trash through the purchase of their recycled bracelets. This is the promise to their customers: Remove one pound of trash from the ocean for every bracelet sold.  Just $20.
4Ocean has three different clean up methods that drive their growing trash removal:
•         The daily offshore/intracoastal cleanups led by their 7 full time captains with 4 boats out on the water every single day
•         Beach cleanups hosted worldwide
•         Working with other cleanup organizations across the world

4Ocean 2017 Milestones:
•         Removed over 250,000 pounds of trash from the ocean
•         Expanded from 2 employees to over 40
•         Hosted cleanups in 16 countries
 

2.  Body Glove Crusader
www.bodyglove.com

 
A huge stand up paddleboard.
There is no end to the SUP craze and that is a good thing. At the show, Body Glove debuted their Body Glove Crusader, a 15-foot long, 66-inch wide paddleboard, 6 inches thick, weighing 76lbs, with a max capacity of 1000lbs, good for 4-6 people. This looks like a lot of fun and will be available hopefully for summer.
 

3. Shark Eyes
www.sharkeyesusa.com

Shark Eyes is the world’s most affordable visual shark deterrent. Shark attacks have been a big problem around the world in recent years. This is a sticker for all water users who want to minimize their risk of a shark attack. Developed, and endorsed by watermen and professionals who routinely encounter sharks in the wild, the Shark Eyes decal aims to fools the shark into thinking it’s been spotted, removing the element of surprise and deterring an attack. There are different sizes and prices start around $12. This is a simple idea and solution, but a no-brainer.
 

4. Kadan Swimwear
www.kadanswimwear.com


The story here is this beautiful swimwear line is designed, marketed and ran by an 18 year old.
Kelsey Caputo graduated from high school early and is now designing and promoting her own swimwear line.
The pieces reflect a coastal living that is fresh, laid-back and stylish. Pieces range from $75 to $120, and are on sale at boutique stores dotting the Florida Keys and online at www.kadanswimwear.com.  
The capsule collection offers five styles in calypso and baby blue. She envisioned beautiful women wearing her suits having fun and feeling confident when she conceived the idea and started designing.
 
“Every line tells a story,” explains Caputo, who graduated high school early to persue her designing interests. “Mine says elegant costal living for modern women.”
 



5. O2cool Products
www.o2-cool.com

Like the Mist 'N Sip
O2COOL’s patented Mist 'N Sip® products provide a unique combination all in one - Misting and Drinking. Mist cools you on the outside, while Sip cools you on the inside.™

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Halloween Tech

Americans are looking forward to splurging on their favorite candy and costumes this Halloween season. According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, total spending for Halloween is expected to reach $8.4 billion, an all-time high in the survey’s 11-year history.

U.S. consumers are expected to spend an average of $82.93, up from last year’s $74.34, with more than 171 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities this year.

Rick and Sully scare up the latest Halloween Tech:

 

1.  AtmosFX - Projector and scenes to decorate your house

www.atmosfx.com

A couple years ago, I was excited to feature the AtmosFX projector and Halloween scenes on my Halloween tech TV and Radio segments. (FOX, CBS  and more) The response was overwhelming. When people see the possibilities, they are immediately drawn to what AtmosFX offers. Imagine, no more streamers, plastic pumpkins and tacky fake scarecrows.

Now I'm just as excited to feature what is new and improved for 2017.
Digital Decorating Kit has been updated for 2017, significantly improving an already simple and cost-effective way to digitally decorate. As the highest-quality standard-definition (SD) projector kit on the market, it packs everything you need to create stunningly original displays for Halloween, Christmas, and celebrations year round. It's easier to use, you get better definition and there are new scenes....
Halloween Scenes:

    Rise of the Wraiths, from Phantasms
    Face of Death, from Phantasms
    Dancing Dead, from Bone Chillers
    Gathering Ghouls, from Ghostly Apparitions
    Beckoning Beauty, from Ghostly Apparitions
    Zombie Swarm, from Zombie Invasion!
    Stalking Startlers, from Night Stalkers
    Howl at the Moon, from Tricks and Treats
    He's Alive, from Tricks and Treats
    Vampire's Snack, from Shades of Evil
    Evil Twins 1, from Macabre Manor
    Beyond the Grave, from Macabre Manor
AtmosFX Window Projection Material is made from a woven fabric that provides excellent contrast and light diffusion. It’s easy to set up, store and reuse.
 



2. Pyro Pets

A candle that when the wax melts, a spooky skeleton appears...  about $30

A sinister silhouette starts to emerge. Just a hint. A flickering shadow looming beneath the surface. Then, as the wax begins to melt, a menacing flame-scorched creature rears its demonic head, with sharpened teeth and fire blazing in its eyes.

Slowly but surely the cute geometric kitten exterior is eroded away and all that remains is a haunting metallic skeleton stood ominously in a pool of wax. So why not sit this malevolent moggie up on your mantelpiece and bring a little evil ambiance into your home.
 


3. CHAUVET DJ JAM Pack Emerald LED Strobe Light & Fog Machine Set w/IRC-6 Remote Control

$100 on Amazon

-Your very own strobe and fog machine...

Partners who have different sleep temperature preferences - the BedJet Dual Zone configuration creates two independent zones for cooling/heating on either side of the bed
