Compex Wireless USA Muscle Stimulator

Compex takes the Lucy approach to muscle performance: claiming that athletes use less than half their overall muscle potential, their products (purportedly) use electronic stimulation to help athletes achieve their full potential. Their latest stimulation pack, the Wireless USA Muscle Stimulator, dispenses with the dangling cords, using wireless pods and electrode pads to amplify muscle performance according to nine preprogrammed electronic patterns for such applications as upping blood flow and clearing lactic acid. What’s more, it’s lighter than Compex’s previous models. Just don’t expect it to give you psychic powers when you bench 300.

Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme

Dell’s new tough tablet looks like something you’d whip out in a heist scenario to hack into a giant safe. Whether or not professional larceny is your steez, it’s easy to see the practicality of its “ruggedized” flip-hinge design and Direct-View display, which makes the screen legible in all lighting conditions. Military-standard heat resistance and IP-65 sand-, dust- and waterproofness make it reliable in all outdoor conditions, and a dual-core Intel i3-4010U processor makes it reliable in — you know, basic situations where you’d need a computer. Programming, reading Gear Patrol, hacking a safe, etc.
