Master Lock dialSpeed

Typical padlocks have 64,000 possible combinations; the electronic dialSpeed has 22 million, the most of any portable lock. Four directional buttons correspond to numbers or letters. A combo of up to 12 presses signals a motor to release the catch.

Milwaukee Tool M12 600 MCM Cable Cutter

The M12 Cable Cutter is the strongest clipper of its size. At seven pounds and 10 inches, the tool can cut copper wire of up to an inch thick. A battery-powered ratchet in the head spins to apply 5,000 pounds of force.

ThermaCELL Heated Insoles

Battery-powered ThermaCELL insoles keep feet warm as outside temperatures drop. The foam inserts have two heat settings, which a wearer chooses via wireless remote. They last up to five hours per charge.

Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3020e

The PowerLite Home Cinema is the only wireless projector that has a split-screen mode. It can simultaneously connect to two HDMI devices, so viewers can watch TV and surf the Internet at the same time on the same screen.

HydraPak Wooly Mammoth

The Wooly Mammoth keeps drinks hot or cold longer than other insulated bottles. Instead of lining the 20-ounce plastic container with the standard Styrofoam or Mylar, designers placed Prima-Loft—a synthetic polyester-like insulation also used in extreme hiking boots—between the bottle’s double walls.

Maya Group Xploderz X2 Retaliator 2000

With a range of 100 feet, the Retaliator 2000 shoots ammo farther than all other toy guns. The marble-size bullets, made from a gel-like polymer, whiz through the air like BBs. Getting shot won’t hurt: They disintegrate upon contact.

Zippo Windproof Stove

The Zippo stove cooks food more efficiently than other windproof options. Instead of windscreens that rest on the grill, two stainless steel chimneys built into the aluminum frame protect the flames from gusts while funneling heat directly to pots.

Philips ShoqBox Portable Speaker SB7300

Cooks with messy hands can control the ShoqBox speaker without touching it. A motion sensor at the top of the device registers seven gestural commands, so a user can skip to the next song with a hand wave.

Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven

The FlashXpress is the fastest-cooking toaster oven. In place of coils, infrared bulbs emit heat of varying wavelengths; shorter waves cook food from the inside out, longer waves from the outside in. Since the bulbs don’t need to warm up, there’s no need to preheat.

Bosch GSL 2 Surface Laser

The GSL 2 is the first laser level that points out bumps in floors automatically. After a user sets a reference, two lasers scan a 60-foot circle—one on top of the other, appearing as one beam. Where the ground is uneven, they diverge, appearing as two.

Wingscapes AutoFeeder

The AutoFeeder is the first programmable bird feeder. Birders can set the 21-inch device to dispense seeds four times a day in seconds-long intervals. That way they won’t miss seeing winged visitors, and the feeder won’t empty as quickly as a gravity-dependent design would.

Genius Lychas HS-G550 Foldable Gaming Headset

The Lychas headset features volume knobs on both ears, so wearers can adjust each side independently. By turning down the audio in one ear, gamers can strategize with teammates in the room and still stay tuned in to the game.
