On average, people spend 10 or more hours a day staring at digital screens. Yet traditional glasses are only designed for reading books, not computers. According to the Vision Council, easily 70 percent of Americans experience digital eye strain due to prolonged use of electronic devices.

Pixel Eyewear’s computer glasses provide stylish protection and are precisely engineered to reduce eyestrain from digital screens.
Pixel Eyewear provides breakthrough lens technology that filters 50 percent of blue light and up to 95 percent at the strongest wavelengths, without the yellow tint.

Research shows that 76 percent of parents have frequent sleep problems, but what do you do when the source of your sleep deprivation isn’t the nightly baby feedings or an anxious mind pondering the overflowing to-do list? What if the source of sleep deprivation is snoring… either yours or your partner’s? A new, first-of-its kind sleep mask could be the solution for you. Hüpnos is the world’s first self-learning, snore-reduction mask that uses sensors to wirelessly connect to the Hüpnos sleep analysis app that records a person’s sleep and detects snoring. The mask is made with premium microfiber and is form-fitted to provide a soft, gentle feel ideal for sleep comfort.
How does it work: When the wearer begins snoring, the app communicates to the mask, prompting it to gently vibrate until the wearer turns on their side. If the snoring continues, expiration pressure is increased through the mask’s silicone nose piece, opening airways using the wearer’s own breathing to stop snoring. Users have reported a more restful sleep the first time they used Hupnos.

Pitbull Gold Skull Shaver
Dwayne Johnson, Terry Crews, Patrick Stewart. They all made bald sexy to the point now where some men even prefer to shave their heads than fight a losing battle to thinning hair.

But, the road to that smooth, clean bald look has always been full of ugly nicks and cuts. Until the Pitbull Gold from Skull Shaver.

Each rotary cutter flexes independently and the Gold features more torque, cutting area and better articulation.

All of the shaved hair is trapped in the Pitbull so you can shave on the go and not worry about having to brush off your shoulders (much less the sink or floor). It comes with an 18-month warranty.
