43 Cool Gadgets To Help You Sneak Booze Almost Everywhere

There are many ways to justify sneaking booze into a place. Some will say it’s cheaper, others will say it’s more convenient as they don’t have to stay in line to buy a drink and some will even say they do not like the existing selection and they prefer to bring their’s.
My objective is not to argue about the validity of all these reasons, but to show you 42 cool ways you can conceal your drink and smuggle into the cinema, football game, at the pub, even on a cruise ship or in whatever place you’d like to do so.

Also check the 33 Wallet Gadgets To Supercharge Your Daily Routine cool round up I featured earlier.

Small disclaimer – Use your due diligence. Keep in mind that in some places booze smuggling is illegal and you will support the consequences if you are caught doing so. Research local laws before passing to action and, most important of all, remember that alcohol should be used and consumed in a responsible manner only by individuals who are of legal drinking age.

Before going further and diving into the 42 cool hidden flasks I gathered for you – take a moment and check Seth Lieber‘s comprehensive B.Y.O.B. – How to Sneak Alcohol Onto a Cruise Ship and other ways of reducing your bar tab.

SPOT Global Satellite Phone Coverage Map

While most of us go crazy after powerful smartphones with big screens and power hog processors, the SPOT Global Phone has a different value proposition for it’s customers – affordable satellite phones with almost full Earth coverage (some parts of Africa and Asia are not yet included in their plans – check the above map).

Their phones are not what we usually call “head turners” but hey, there’s a price to pay for being able to use your phone in remote areas with no cell phone coverage. On the other hand, their airtime plans are pretty acceptable starting from a reasonable pricing of $0.25 US per minute.

So now we have smartphones for city usage, low priced satellite phones for usage in remote areas … what’s next? What do you think? Let me know in the comments …

ProGear - The Multipurpose Bike Station
More and more people are using bikes for individual transportation, fitness and pleasure on daily bases. While there’s a plethora of gadgets to super-charge your bike, most solutions come in individual packages and tend to over-crowd your handle bar.

The ProGear Bike Station was designed around the most common biker needs – front light, smartphone charging, FM Radio, MP3 and packs all this solutions into a light package attachable to your handle bar.
The bike station is water and dust proof, features a 7,200mAh USB charger (yeap, that’s right – now you can charge your smartphone while riding your bike, use your GPS on a Quad Lock Bike Mount or work your fitness with a Wahoo Pack without fearing you’ll empty your battery), a MP3 player with microSD card slot, headphones 3.5mm jack, 3 watts loudspeaker with Enhanced Bass Sound, FM Radio and a LED bike light.

While there are some additional features I would have like seeing (think about a bike horn, a time watch or a chronometer, etc …), the ProGear has a decent set of features for the $59 price. Hopefully, improved versions with come complex feature sets will hit the market soon…

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom - Photo Smartphone Android Hybrid

Many camera manufacturers are taking the Android way. And I totally understand them – with Android owning over 50% of the smartphones market share, many users are familiar with Google’s OS. So implementing it into a digital camera can bring only benefits – Google Store free photo apps, ease of usage, integration with the most popular clouding services out there (think Dropbox, Google Drive, etc …).

While the Samsung EK-GC100 and the Nikon CoolPix SC800C we featured earlier were digital cameras running Google’s Android, today we’ll check a different kind of camera breed – the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom has a powerful camera attached to a successful smartphone model (the Galasy S4 Mini) which turns to be a great combination for anyone who wants to have high photo and video shooting capabilities without carrying an extra dedicated device. The S4 Zoom was described by Samsung’s CEO JK Shin, as “truly the best of both worlds, without compromise”. Let’s check out some of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom:

  • The front looks like a dedicated digital camera while the back looks like a last generation smartphone
  • Smartphone Specs:
    • 4.3 in touch screen – the touch function deactivates while taking pictures to avoid firing the shutter by mistake
    • 1.5 Ghx dual core processor
    • 1.5GB RAM
    • 8GB Storage with possibility to be extended via a MicroSD
    • 2.330 Mha power battery
    • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • Camera Specs:
    • 16MP camera back camera and 1.9MP front camera
    • 10x Optical zoom
    • Optical image stabilization
    • Software functions:Best face (choose the best quality “face” from a couple of pics), HDR, Macro, Panorama, Eraser (remove moving things from the picture), Sound and Shot (pictures with sound recording), Drama Shot (combine multiple pics into one final image), Animated Photo (create GIF’s), Smart Auto Settings

While the Galaxy S4 Zoom was just announced by Samsung, rumor has it that it will be released somewhere this year (probably in Q4) with a starting price tag of around $620 US.
