It’s Friday! *Flavor Flav voice* “YEAH, BOOOYYYYEEEE!” Today, we’re shaking things up on Fan Girl Friday–I actually don’t have fandom finds for you today! GASP! I know, I know… take a breath, it’s going to be okay. I DO, however, have some awesome tech that will make you FINALLY feel like all those predictions about life post-2000 in 80’s movies were accurate! To quote the modern-day poet, Bruno Mars: Don’t believe me? Just watch!
I love listening to music while I run, now the yard, and clean house. But I absolutely hate cords! They always get tangled or caught on stuff and the ear buds get yanked from my ears. Hashtag first world problems, amirite? But, thanks to the NAME, cords are no more!
These cordless, Bluetooth ear buds drown out outside noise, have a microphone so you can chat, they hold their charge for three hours of listen/talk time, AND you can sync them to TWO devices at once! . TECH, YES!
I’m what you call “indoorsy”. But I know many people that, for whatever reason, actually like camping, hiking, and various outdoor activities that make me gag. I’ve heard way too many stories about people getting lost on the woods or worse, unable to call for help because there’s no cell service. That’s what sparked the creators of goTENNA to invent this!
This handy little gadget is amazing! According to the goTENNA website you can “pair goTenna to your smartphone via Bluetooth and use the goTenna app to communicate with other goTennas up to several miles or kilometers away! In less than a minute, you can create a smart, people-powered network, anywhere. No towers, routers or satellites required.”
I have about 25 water bottles in my kitchen cabinet. I’m what you’d call a connoisseur of portable refreshment. But my collection pales in comparison to this AH-MAY-ZING water bottle from Think Geek!

- Also has a standard 3.5mm jack if you don’t want to go wireless
- Red LED flashing emergency light
- White LED lantern
- Hidden compartment for keys and cash
- Carabiner with bottle opener
- Retractable drinking spout with straw extension
- Free app for iOS and Android with white noise modes, lighting modes, timer
We’re big into Legos at the Huffman Homestead. And, since Huff the Hubs is an electrical engineer, we’re also big into how things operate and tinkering around with stuff (my husband is basically the Muggle equivalent of Arthur Weasley). So this next find is right up our alley!
These awesome blocks, Brixo, are chrome-plated building bricks that interlock with one another creating light, sound, and movement! Their basically the Legos of the future! Check out their site for more!
