key lock is probably the last thing you would defined as ‘high tech’. wait till you hear this. iLOQ, a Finnish company, specializes in development, manufacturing and marketing of innovative high security electronic locking solutions, has a lock systems which is worthy of the words ‘high tech’. Privus is a cylindrical lock which you can define access rights. you may ask: what access rights? isn’t by duplicating the keys for whoever needs it grants the access? it’s far more than that. Privus is an electronic locking system, and the best part is no batteries and cables are involved. need new keys? you can make it yourself, right there and then.

what i like about this lock is, you can remove the access for certain keys if the holders do not have the right to access anymore. it also lessen the number of keys you may carry if you install the Privus to more than one property or locations, and programmed it to a single key. i know what you are thinking. there are bound to have risks but if you have a bunch of keys that you need readily always, this could be a good news for you. you can also limit access to a key if situation requires, such as keeping certain part of your office or house off-limits to guest. hmmm. why does it begin to sound like hotel’s card keys? nevertheless, being a tech head, i am all for this system.

Brinno PeepHole Viewer – look who’s knocking?

this is a very interesting product. it is a cross between a conventional optical peephole and a wall/ceiling mounted security cam. the PeepHole Viewer replaces the traditional optical peephole and let’s you view who’s knocking via the 2.5″ TFT-LCD. the PeepHole Viewer is a direct replacement for the traditional optical item. image is captured through a 1.3 Megapixel CMOS camera, project to the 2.5″ TFT-LCD with a viewing angle of 96DEG or 99DEG, depending on the model. power comes from 2x AA batteries which means it is totally cable-free. Brinno don’t need to sell me the PeepHole Viewer’s benefits, just the concept alone has won me over – except that i don’t have a Peephole to start with. but it certainly makes sense to use such device, as oppose to sticking your face to the door just to get a glimpse of who’s knocking on the door. that’s what i call home improvement.

i got to give this a big star for it’s design. the design of the Snow Shredder is really cool and resembles a Snow Ski, but this works only on a slope. get ready to rock the slope this coming winter and slide in style. want to shred the snow slope at night? not to worry, the Snow Shredder comes with a working headlight with an easy on/off button to make sure fun is not missed at night. obviously, the designer of this Snow Shredder knows you want to be in control, so it comes with a steerable wheel with adjustable heights up front for control your slide down slope. this should make control freaks happy. looks like adjustable steering is not just for automobile. the Snow Shredder fits 2 kids, aged 6 and up and as an added security, the kid behind gets to hold on to the handles if the ride becomes to rough. finally, a retractable hand up front enables easy towing of your slide up the slope for your next slide down slope. i love to have one of this but unfortunately, there’s no snow in this part of the world.
