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...
    Package includes a fog machine, a UV wash/strobe combo light, power cord, external power supply adapter, IRC-6 Remote and mounting hardware

    Compact fog machine emits thick bursts of water-based fog to enhance any party
    Easy wireless control of the UV strobe with the included IRC-6 remote
    Trigger Auto and Sound modes from the IRC-6 remote

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Michigan and New Car Gadgets

***Rick was in Northern Michigan this week. The leaves may be starting to change a little, but with temps in the 80s, the weather was perfect for anything outdoors.. golf, fishing relaxing...


 And..

It doesn't matter if your car is old like Sully's or a gas saving maching like Rck's there are always new gadgets hitting the market for your cars.

Here is some of the latest Rick has been trying...

Have a listen:



1.  ZUS Smart Tire Safety Monitor

www.nonda.co

About $100
The nonda ZUS Smart Tire Safety Monitor is actually a series of devices that work in tandem with a powerful app.
Note: 4 in 10 drivers believe they can determine if a tire is under inflated just by looking. In fact, tires can be 50% under inflated and not appear flat.

A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reinforces that advice by determining that vehicles driving on tires underinflated by more than 25 percent are three times more likely to be involved in a crash related to tire problems than vehicles with proper inflation.

Just charge, use Bluetooth and launch the app, install (screw in) the sensors until they are tight on to the valve of your tires.Caps are labeled for the correct tire and you are ready to go and check your tires.
 

2. ZUS Smart Car Charger

https://www.nonda.co/products/zus-smart-car-charger

Another ZUS product, this one is $34.99
- Car battery monitor
- 2X faster charge
- Automatic car finder
 

3.  Brush Hero

www.brushhero.com

The revolutionary detailing tool that harnesses the power of an ordinary garden hose to clean cars, motorcycles and bikes to perfection. Only $34.99

Sure, there are dozens of other cleaning gadgets on the market. But they simply don’t get the job done right. Before Brush Hero, it was difficult to find a tool that had enough power to remove dirt and grime without the damaging delicate surfaces of cars, motorcycles and bikes.

Brush Hero uses water pressure alone to power its turbine and bust the grime in only seconds. It spins with an impressive amount of torque! An awesome gift for the car, motorcycle, or bike enthusiast in your life, it also comes with an array of custom cleaning accessories to tackle every job you can imagine. Men love using Brush Hero to get their BBQs, golf clubs, and even their lawn mowers looking as good as new again. No matter the cleaning project, this tool is the ultimate weapon for men ready to win the war on muck.

 
 
4. Grand Trunk Products

www.grandtrunk.com

Adventure products you can keep in the trunk of your car.
Have an adventurous gentleman on your gift list? Grand Trunk products help make plane, train and automobile portions of the trip more enjoyable! Once your Jacques Cousteau arrives at his destination, he can sleep under the stars in a Grand Trunk hammock! From pillows to tents, gift the gift of traveling in comfort with Grand Trunk’s travel treasures. A variety of products such as their Hooded Travel Pillow and Compression Pack, will ensure your world traveler is able to feel the privacy and comfort he deserves!

 
 

5. BMW to integrate Parkmobile app into cars

Parkmobile, the leading provider of mobile parking and transit solutions in North America, today announced at the 2017 International Parking Institute Annual Conference the availability of its full platform capabilities as an integrated OEM offering in all new BMW vehicles.  Parkmobile currently enables consumers to find, reserve and pay for parking through a single app in over 2,000 locations and 250 cities across the US and Canada. With this launch, in addition to reserving parking directly through the car navigation system or companion ParkNow app, BMW drivers can also initiate and pay for on-street and off-street parking across the Parkmobile Network.  

Leveraging the car navigation system and GPS, when parking on-street or in other Parkmobile enabled locations, BMW cars will prompt drivers to begin a parking session through the dashboard screen seamlessly and without the need to either pay a meter or initiate a session via mobile app.  Similar to the Parkmobile App, the vehicle will prepopulate the zone based on GPS coordinates, enabling 1-touch parking.  The offering supports the capability to preselect the amount of time a driver wants to purchase, with the ability to manage and extend sessions remotely through the companion ParkNow app or Parkmobile app while away from their vehicle.   In addition, where parking rules allow, the platform supports start-stop parking sessions whereby the parking session terminates automatically when the driver returns to the automobile and commences driving.  

Parkmobile’s launch of this innovative new service in BMW cars follows the successful launch last year of in-dash reservations into the BMW 5 Series line.  “We are extremely proud to partner with BMW to deliver this tremendous innovation in the automotive and parking industries alike.” said Jon Ziglar, Parkmobile’s CEO.

And Sully steps up with a pick of his own, as a history buff..

Meadow Nook.

Lt. Col. Robert Augustus Alston, whose home, known as Meadow Nook, still stands across from the East Lake Golf Course. This antebellum home was built in 1856 for his South Carolina bride, and was occupied during the American Civil War. It is the second-oldest home in the city of Atlanta and was not burned by Union General William T. Sherman and his troops.
