These Nifty Gadgets Are Like The Name Brand (But Cheaper)
This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.
If the bank keeps calling to tell you that they can't fit all of your money into their vault and have to build an entirely new bank just to handle your vast account, then yeah, go ahead and always splurge on name-brand products. However, those of us who hold our breath whenever we swipe our debit cards have to be a little bit more frugal. That's OK, though, because these awesome tech toys are just as great as their more famous cousins (and in some cases, even better). And you can get them from the Cracked Store for a fraction of the price. Check them out.
Look, the Apple Watch is frickin' rad. We can't deny that, and if we tried to, we'd just sound like that one kid in college whose only personality trait was that they "didn't listen to Top 40 music." But the Ticwatch 2 (which was funded by Kickstarter and not made on Apple's secret moon base) does almost all of the same stuff and looks just as cool. It's got wireless charging, fitness tracking, and call and text capabilities, but all for less than half the price. It's available right now for just $169.99 -- 15 percent off its regular price.
Conversion Turntable with Stereo Speakers
If you're one of those record and turntable folks, then put on your vintage bifocals and pay attention. This turntable has stereo speakers, can digitize your record collection (and any cassettes you might have kicking around), and is almost half the price of most portable turntables on the market. Pick it up now for just $65.99, and rest easy knowing that your vinyl isn't going to waste.
All Terrain Sound: The World's Most Experienced Speaker
You probably own a few Bluetooth speakers, but have you ever needed to use one to fight off a bear, only to discover that it was too weak and fragile? If so, then you're probably too dead to read this. So to prevent this kind of mauling, take a look at the All Terrain Sound. The All Terrain Sound is waterproof, floats, and has been tested for a 10+ foot drop on concrete. And yeah, we're gonna go ahead and say that if you need to fight off a bear with a Bluetooth speaker, this one's your best bet. You could spend the weekend listening to The Weeknd in the belly of a Kodiak Grizzly for just $29.95.
Activeon CX 1080p WiFi Action Camera
Owning a 1080p camera will not magically transform you into Shaun White. You'll need a wizard and three pints of his blood to do that. However, this WiFi Action Camera can provide you with the motivation you need to power through the bumps, bruises, scrapes, and scraps that stand between you and short-lived YouTube infamy. Instead of dropping $400 on a GoPro, how about just spending $43 on a product that does mostly the same stuff? It even has a few features its 10x pricier uncle doesn't, so you should go ahead and pick one up now (skateboard and Red Bull sponsorship not included).
You don't have to be Nikola Tesla to see these are a good deal. Unless you're an owl. Owls Are Stupid.
