This video combines two of my favorite entertainment forces, Batman and Dethklok, into a fusion of metal and vigilantism. Fair warning, it’s a bit weird.

The BackTrack D-Tour is designed to allow the user to find their way back to a custom waypoint that can be marked with the device. Using the D-Tour, we found that it’s best to travel a steady pace to allow the device to calibrate your directions. It’s worth noting that use in an area with a strong presence of iron or other magnetic metals can cause an error in the path finding. Additionally, the D-Tour is compatible with most personal computers, and can show the course, length, speed, elevation, and temperature of the most recently logged trip.
The BackTrack also comes with a rescue mirror which includes a handy Morse code guide.

Tennessee Arms Company is offering what they call the “Ghost Gun”, a clear stripped AR-15 lower receiver. Made from UV stabilized Nylon that is highly resistant to oils and lubricants, the Ghost Gun is a fully functional lower, although tnarmsco notes it is intended more as a teaching tool and for product showcase than for hard use. If anything else, it’ll definitely make for a great conversation starter at the range. Pair it with a transparent magazine or two for double the fun.

The S[ci]F[i] Network (changing their name to SyFy was and still is dumb) has decided to do a remake of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys. For those of you who haven’t seen it, 12 Monkeys was a trippy science fiction movie starting Bruce Willis as a man who is sent into the past to try and obtain a sample of a virus that virtually wiped out mankind in his time, so that a cure could be developed. Just looking at the trailer it looks like a way different beast, seemingly sharing only a name and a basic concept. We’ll have to wait until January 2015 to see how it stands up compared to the original.

I was ‘out and about’ last night, and I happened to spot these ‘Limited Edition Kryptek Military Heroes Pack’ boxes of Mountain Dew. Reportedly, only the boxes get the camo, not the cans. You can pick these up anywhere they sell Mountain Dew.

Since I feel obligated to post any gun shaped projectile devices I can possibly find, I figured the Cash Cannon fulfills said obligation. Made from ABS plastic, the Cash Cannon can be loaded with US Dollar bills or any item similar in size and structure, and with a pull of a trigger shoots them out rapidly. If anything else, it’s a novel way to “make it rain”.
