Gadgets and Gizmos: Tailgating Gizmos
Whether you watch the dolphins, 'canes, or both there's just "one way" to assure victory "off" the field. Score some points with your fellow fans in tonight's Gadgets and Gizmos.
WSVN--It is the ultimate touchdown tradition. Before you get a taste of the action inside, you have to taste what's happening outside.
When it comes to tailgating in south Florida, it's all about friends, family, and football. Not to mention, a little pre-game excitement and entertainment.
Stephan Glascoe from Sawgrass Ford:"It's a great entertainment piece to add to your vehicle."
All sports fans know a great reception when they see it. But who says you can't be an armchair quarterback outside the house. Check out the trac-vision a-5.
With direct TV going directly into your car, you're guaranteed not to miss a single snap.
Stephan Glascoe:"The picture quality is fantastic. You get up to 225 channels and you get your pay pre view channels too. The same as your home."
Even a little rain won't stop die-hard tailgaters from coming out and having a good time.
Now, when you're kicking back with a nice cool beverage and you want to make things a little more interesting. All you need is Teo's drillblender, a little ice, a little mix, the mins' and schimts' and voula.
Brad Schimt:"Ahh, excellent. Thank you. Cheers."
Of course, no pre-game party would be complete without some music and you can easily achieve that with these in floatable speakers.
Kristen:"They are convenient. They're small. They look like they are water proof."
Kristen: "It's prefect for this kind of setting.
Another item that's perfect for this kind of setting is the pocketsurfer. If you want to check up on other score or your fantasy football team, it offers a handheld computer with fast DSL speed.
Keith Jones from Edge Tech Inc.:"It actually works of off a blue tooth connection in your cellphone. So the blue tooth phone is actually the modem that drives the hand held computer."
Adam Knight:"I'm here checking out my fantasy football team on yahoo and it's working out pretty good for me."
Everybody loves grilling at tailgating parties, but why not grill with a little style.
All you have to do is trade in your old tools for these with your favorite team logo.
Keith Johnson:"This exactly what you need here with shrimp and lobster. Good set of tools."
And if you want to display your food in style how about using one of these. This is the NCAA endzone table. It takes tailgating to a whole new level.
It would be fun to have. It's an awesome table. All right it's game time, when you got to go you got to go and that's when this rent comes in handy. It actually doubles as a porta potty.
Tom Haynes:"Tell me if this would come in handy at a tailgating party.
Woman:" Absolutely, we have been doing this for years and we've been waiting for something like this of this magnitude to happen."
But if a tent is a little too much, female fans may be interested in this little gadget called the uri-fem.
Dr. Benedicto Fernandez from Uri Femme:"The curvature does cover the area completely and it allows for no urine to seap through the sides."
Created by south Florida rumatolagist doctor Benedicto Fernandez, it works like a funnel and easily fits into a pocket.
Dr. Benedicto Fernandez:"They simply go to the porta potty and they will be able to take one out and not have to sit in a sometime sanitary sometimes very dirty condition."
But best of all, you won't have to stand in long lines and miss all the fun on the field. And we should mention most of the gadgets are available with your favorite team's logo.
