Listen, we know that in a moment of weakness you thought it would be effective to smash up your coffee maker because your old buddy Seany might retweet your vertical video. Look, man, how about you take a step back and think about why Keurig pulled their advertising. If you are all about family like we are here at Relevant Dad, then pay your penance and then buy a new Keurig so that you don’t look like a complete fool at best or at worst a supporter of a horrible man who did horrible things to kids. We suggest the K575, it’s what we brew with here in the office and it will fit into that empty spot on your counter perfectly. It also makes a great gift so why don’t you buy one for your neighbor whose old Keurig is in the trash bin holding down their Ed Gillespie lawn sign.
Google has just released a new smart camera that you can set up in your home to capture those oft-forgotten or missed candid moments. “Google Clips is smart enough to recognize great expressions, lighting and framing. So the camera captures beautiful, spontaneous images. And it gets smarter over time.” The AI tech on this camera seems pretty fun. The more it recognizes a face or your pets the more it will take clips of that subject which means the quality of clips that you save will improve over time. The shots will save to your phone’s Clips app and you can edit them into moments using the amazing Google Photo’s app. This is just the perfect app for families who want to spend time IN the moment and not sit behind the screen snapping photos. Now you can laugh with your partner and capture the moment remotely as your toddler puts their legs over their head and mimicks farting while yelling “toot, toot, toot from the butt, butt, butt!” Wait…is that just in our house?
Hey, fam. (waving hand emoji) Good morning, look outside. Ah yes, the dew is slowly drying in the grass as the sun peeks through the trees in the backyard. Coffee drips and children stir. It’s Saturday morning and today is going to be hot, you can feel it already. That blanket of humidity that turns to sweat on your forehead as soon as you step onto the porch is lurking. So, drink that coffee and fill up that pool you bought on Prime Day. Oh, you already have a pool? Look – at – you fancy man! Congrats on that I guess.
Now, step your pool game up a notch with Hydro Spring Hoops and make your pool a basketball court. This pool hoop is easy to set up and twist and fold down for storage and quick play. This is a great product, the base is heavy meaning it won’t tip over in the pool when the pace of play gets heated! The included ball is easy to grip and rip when pool time turns into NBA Jam 2k17. Have fun dunking on your kids and wife dad, this hoop is really really, fun.
If you follow us you know how much we love the eero home wifi system so we are super stoked that it is about to get even better. The fine folks at eero have just launched the eero Beacon a simple plug and go wifi extender that meshes into your existing eero wifi system seamlessly. What the eero Beacon means it that your system can cover even more hard to reach range inside and outside of your home. Take your family movie night outside without fear of buffering or signal loss. Better yet, Netflix and chill* on that patio set you paid for but never use. “No more dead spots, slow spots, drop-offs, or buffering — right out of the box.” Also, and the Beacon had a downward facing night light, did a parent invent this or what?
“…a projector isn’t a need; it’s a want. If you’re like me, and you had childhood fantasies of turning the garage door into a screen for Mario Kart and Monday Night Football, a projector might be for you — no mansion or screening room required.” The Verge
