Clarity Enhancing Bifocal Sunglasses

Does space-age technology matter when it comes to sunglasses? These are The Clarity Enhancing Bifocal Sunglasses, based on glasses created by NASA, that protect your eyes while simultaneously aiding their vision.

Clarity Enhancing Bifocal SunglassesUsing the technology NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory developed, these bifocal sunglasses filter the blue and violet light rays that can impair vision, yet they allow the green, yellow, orange, and red light rays that enhance sight to reach your retinas, allowing objects to appear more distinct, and diminishing distortion. While traditional sunglasses are darkening your vision, these enhance vividness whilst blocking 100% of harmful UV rays. When not protecting your eyes, they come with both a soft pouch and hard case for storing, so you can keep them safe as well.

You choose the bifocal diopters you prefer — 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5 — and with stainless nickel-silver gunmetal frames and adjustable non-slip nose pads, they’ll look and feel as great as they perform. So don’t darken your vision with regular sunglasses, sharpen it. With The Clarity Enhancing Bifocal Sunglasses from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Press Release: The Verticular Watch

Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Verticular Watch.

New York, NY, December 11, 2012- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only, and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Verticular Watch, a timepiece that indicates the time by illuminating LEDs across four vertical columns.

The device has the look of an ordinary bracelet until the touch of a button causes its display to illuminate with an animated sequence of scrolling numbers across four columns, eventually settling on the digits for the current hour and minute.

The Verticular Watch’s four columns represent the place values for the tens and ones of the hour and minute, providing an unconventional yet easily decipherable way to keep time,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Mana

ger Fred Berns.

The time is expressed in the columns with numbers that ascend from 0 to 9, illuminate in a bright blue hue, and remain visible for 10 seconds before the watch reverts to its enigmatic appearance. Subsequent touches of the button on the case display the week, date, and year using the same pattern.

The Verticular Watch has a stainless steel body and wristband that are electroplated to produce a glossy black finish.

Swedish Hand Plow

The Swedish Hand Plow is the shovel used by the Swedish Roof Clearers Union to remove large amounts of snow in one fell swoop.

Swedish Hand PlowThe term “heart attack snow” is no laughing matter. Wet, heavy snow with high water content might make better snowballs, but it is much more strenuous to remove by hand. Bending and scooping this heavy snow can quickly lead to over-exertion, not to mention strained backs and leg muscles. The Swedish Hand Plow, with its 3-foot wide blade and u-shaped handle, allows for clearing driveways and sidewalks by pushing snow away, rather than needing to lift and throw the snow to the side. The bottom edge of the blade is 22 times thicker than typical shovels, so it skims easily across multiple surfaces like deck wood, brick pavers, and sidewalk seams. The shock-absorbing rubber handgrip helps save wear and tear on the hands, and the corrosion-resistant aluminum throughout fights off the winter weather.

We know you want to get out there as soon as the skies clear and have the first clean driveway on the block. But be sure you do so safely, for your heart and your back. Push snow out of your way with The Swedish Hand Plow, exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer.

Winter Storm Preparedness for Traveling

We’ve shared in our Winter Storm Preparedness post ways in which we can have our homes ready in case of severe winter storms. But what about those times we’re caught in our cars when extreme weather strikes? Of course, the first thing to do is drive to a safe location and seek shelter. But should road conditions prevent you from finding refuge, there are precautions to be taken that can help prevent a dangerous winter stranding from turning tragic.

World's Brightest Pen LightA Winter Storm Survival Kit in your vehicle should include:

Flashlight/batteries

Plush BlanketBlankets/Sleeping Bag

Non-perishable food.

Water

First-Aid Kit

— For food, water, and warmth items, consider how many people you may typically have in your car, and try to have enough on board for everyone.

Snow Extraction KitBooster cables

Sand, cat litter, or other traction aid

Shovel

Never allow your fuel level to dip below half-tank during winter to prevent gas line freezing. The fuller you keep your tank, the more time you’ll have for staying warm should you become stuck. If stuck in a snow storm, remain in your vehicle. Run the engine for 10 minutes each hour for warmth. Keep windows slightly open, and keep snow cleared from tail pipes, to avoid carbon monoxide buildup inside the vehicle. When the snow stops falling, raise the hood of your car so passers-by and emergency rescue personnel know you’re in need of assistance.

Proper winter storm preparedness can make all the difference when the weather outside is frightful. Don’t be caught off guard.
