If you’ve already ditched your crappy plastic guitar for a better one to enhance your Rock Band and Guitar Hero experience then you might also consider replacing that dull TV audio with a dedicated stage monitor. The Polk Audio Hitmaster brings your performance to new heights with a pair of 2.2″x5.5″ horns, twin 1″ tweeters and a booming 6.5″ subwoofer. It includes line level inputs and outputs do you can daisy chain them and it has a 1/8″ input so you can plug in your iPod. Expect to see the HitMaster in early 2010 for around $100.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
