This Atari arcade cabinet delivers a classic arcade experience at home. It evokes the pinnacle of arcade gaming during the 1980s with authentic artwork and nostalgic game play without the nuisance of a coin door. A 17" flat-screen LCD displays the pre-installed games’ two-dimensional graphics and colors, while a 3-watt speaker plays accompanying retro sound effects.
These are the self-balancing skates that combine the functionality of traditional roller skates with the operation of a hoverboard. Built-in gyro sensors and accelerometers detect the slightest pressure of the rider’s feet, enabling one to accelerate forward or backward with a simple lean; standing straight brings the skates to a steady stop. Each skate has a 250-watt motor that propels a rider up to 7 1/2 mph while textured footplates provide a secure non-slip footing.

Offered only by Hammacher Schlemmer, this is the LED-lighted desktop aquarium with two synthetic jellyfish that provide mesmerizing ambiance just like their real counterparts. The aquarium has 18 LEDs (six each of red, blue, and green) that automatically gently change color, causing both jellyfish to “react” by glowing yellow, purple, aquamarine, blue, and red as they float within gentle currents generated by the unit’s silent, integrated motor.
This is the charging station that supplies power to seven USB devices simultaneously. The hub draws power from a standard wall outlet and supplies up to 14 amps to tablets, smartphones, and other electronic devices via two 2.4 amp-, three one amp-, and two three-amp ports. The dock’s integrated smart-charging technology adjusts the energy output of each USB port to optimize recharging speeds of plugged-in devices.
This is the lamp that illuminates a room with Jedi Master wisdom. Its cold-cast bronze base captures a meticulously detailed sculpture of Yoda—emblematic of his pose displayed in The Empire Strikes Back as he imparted his knowledge of the Force to an impatient and ambitious Luke Skywalker. A textured cloth lampshade enhanced with golden lining displays the classic quote “Do, or do not there is no try” bisected by the Jedi Order logo.
This officially licensed half-scale football helmet floats in mid-air, making a dramatic statement of fan loyalty. A strong magnet inside the helmet is repelled by electromagnetic coils and rare earth magnets in its base, a powerful opposing force that causes it to levitate and slowly spin.
This is the electric hair trimmer that cuts evenly in any direction, enabling you to maintain your own closely cropped, clean-cut hairstyle. As simple as combing your hair, the circular trimmer’s rotary cutting system and razor-sharp stainless steel blades cut as the unit is moved through your hair while accommodating the contours of your pate.
This is the car charger that powers your devices and connects to the Internet for hands-free assistance while driving. Using two noise-cancelling microphones and the Alexa service (subscription required), it responds to verbal commands and queries, enabling you to ask for directions, order food, and shop online, keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. It also pairs to your smartphone via Bluetooth for hand-free phone calls.
This insulated jacket is crafted from naturally waterproof Australian oilskin. Used by sailors and ranchers, oilskin outerwear is made by treating cotton with a water-resistant oil and wax compound, combining the light weight and breathability of cotton with the water protection of a slicker.

The Only Automatic Cordless Tire Inflator - This is the only cordless inflator that automatically shuts off when it reaches a desired tire pressure. Ideal for inflating low tires during daytime or nighttime roadside emergencies—as well as inflatables, bicycle tires, and sporting equipment—the desired pressure is set using its digital pressure gauge, and operating similarly to a cordless drill, a squeeze and release of the locking trigger begins inflation.
The High Accuracy Tracking Turntable - This is the belt-driven turntable that comes pre-installed with an accurate tracking cartridge stylus for exceptional playback of phonograph records. Pre-mounted to a straight tone arm with an anti-skating mechanism, this dual-magnet cartridge stylus has received high marks from audiophiles for its ability to bring out the richness and depth of analog vinyl recordings.
The Handyman's Tool Box Work Bench - This is the tool box that transforms into a full-sized work surface for handling a multitude of handyman tasks. As a 13"-high toolbox, it stores hand and power tools and provides a convenient carrying handle. When it’s time to start a job, four locking rubber-tipped legs extend from the bottom and locking risers extend from the top to place the 24" L x 16" W work surface (that also detaches from the bottom) 32" from the floor.
