Gadgets for the Guru – beat-the-heat edition
Its warm, its hot, and its intolerable. We’ve heard these phrases every time summer comes around in Arizona. Here at AZTB, we have a few gadgets to make summer just a little bit better.
Dyson Cool Fan
Are you sick of the noise your fan makes at home? The Dyson Cool Fan is not only blade-less but also quiet. The tiny fan packs powerful airflow by drawing air through a brushless motor. The Dyson Cool Fan is not only safe but also easy to clean since there are no blades involved. Equipped with a remote control and a sleep timer(up to 9 hours), there are also ten different airflow settings to choose from.
Available in 3 different sizes and colors, consumers can buy one for the office, the bedroom and also the living room.

Children/ toddlers will wear the Bluetooth sensor equipped iSwimband and it will alert the parents’ iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch should a swimmer remain submerged for too long a period of time, and/or if a non-swimmer should accidentally fall into the water. iSwimband works in pools, lakes, rivers, the beach, spas and bathtubs.

Peerless-AV 47″ Outdoor TV
It might be hot, but we still love the bbq. The Peerless-AV Outdoor TV (1080p) is a waterproof, dustproof and maintenance free TV ideal for homeowners as well as restaurants. The Outdoor TV is designed to operate in severe temperatures ranging from -24 degrees Fahrenheit to 124 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you’re hanging out by the pool with your smartphone and tablet, you might need a Dryskin. The DrySkin by Subtech Sports is 100% waterproof screen protector for your smartphone or tablet.
