Mirror video recorder Dunobil Spiegel Duo Touch
This device could be called 3 in 1, because. it combines three functions: a DVR with a large display, a remote rear view camera, and all this is built into the rear view mirror. The design of the mirror has a very thin body with soft pads on the back and rubber ties for attaching to an existing standard car mirror.
The main feature of this device is a large 4.7-inch touchscreen display with HD resolution. It is installed behind the glass of the mirror and does not manifest itself in any way when turned off. The mirror itself has a special anti-reflective coating that protects the user from being dazzled by the headlights of cars coming from behind.
You can activate the screen by simply touching the mirror surface on the right side of it with your finger. The brightness of the screen can be adjusted so that it does not blind at night and is well read in sunny weather with backlight. The device menu has large bright letters, perfectly visible at arm’s length.
In addition to the touch control on the bottom of the Dunobil Spiegel Duo Touch, there are also mechanical control buttons that will help you out if you do not want to get your fingers dirty on the mirror. All button designations are printed on the bottom of the mirror, which is very convenient. The DVR shoots in resolutions up to 1080P, giving out a very clear image with well-read numbers at a distance of up to 15 m, even in cloudy weather.
At the same time, the image from the rear view camera can be displayed on the screen. In this case, the video is recorded on a memory card (microSD memory cards up to 64 GB are supported) in two different folders. When the parking mode is activated, if the car shakes from the impact, the DVR will record this moment and protect the file from being overwritten. There is also a motion detection mode, in which any change in the frame will be recorded by the camera in a video clip up to 10 seconds long. You can download an example recording in original resolution from our cloud storage.
The rear view camera that comes with the DVR can be set as permanently working, or it will be activated only when reverse gear is engaged. But to do this, you will need to connect a separate camera wire to the reverse signal.

Digitization has also reached such simple devices as car pressure gauges.

The Kachok M30 manometer has the compact sizes and convenient grip. The device is powered by two lithium batteries, which last a long time and can be quickly replaced without disassembling the case. For work in the dark, there is a backlight for the nipple and the LCD screen. Similar devices can be found on AliExpress for half the money, but they have less wear parts.

Cordless screwdriver Interskol OA-3,6F
A screwdriver is the thing that is useful both at home when disassembling or assembling various devices (including a PC), and when servicing a car. And here and there there are hard-to-reach places where manually turning a screwdriver or a spanner wrench is generally not convenient or impossible. In such cases, an electric screwdriver will facilitate the work. The Interskol OA-3.6F model has a very powerful electric motor that can cope not only with unscrewing and tightening screws and nuts, but also with more energy-intensive screws.
In addition, when dismantling wheel nuts (or bolts), due to the very long working length of the thread, it can be tedious to turn the socket wrench by hand. Having pulled such fasteners manually, then you can entrust all the work of unscrewing or screwing to this electric screwdriver, since it has quite sufficient torque – 5 N m. The built-in battery has a capacity of 1300 mAh, which is enough for more than one working day.
The screwdriver has a transformable body – it can be easily modified from a pistol into a screwdriver with a straight base. The working area is illuminated by a LED of sufficient brightness, but besides this, a very bright flashlight is built into the handle. The manufacturer offers two types of delivery: in a blister, where only a charger is included in the kit, and in a compact plastic case with a set of tool attachments.
Headlamp LED lamp “Photon” SH-400
When installing components inside a PC case, it is often necessary to highlight a certain place. Directional lighting is often required in the interior of a car or in its engine compartment. You can’t do without a flashlight here – it’s good if it is a headlamp that allows you to keep your hands free. Lantern “Photon” SH-400 has a compact size that can easily fit even a car purse, and a double block of lamps – with one powerful bright LED, and two side less powerful, but with a volumetric glow of the LED. The flashlight has a convenient power button that is easy to find and activate without much effort.
The switch mechanism is designed for continuous operation. The same can be said about the elastic band, which provides a comfortable fit of the flashlight on the head. The headlight tilt is adjustable. One standard AA battery will last about 7 hours. The battery is included.

The set of open-end wrenches here is not so extensive, but there are a great many socket wrenches, from the smallest 4 mm to 24 mm.

But if your hands are free, and a Bluetooth headset is used to receive calls, then all work issues can be resolved without being distracted from the road. Also, this gadget will appeal to fans of tinkering with computers.

Fitness bracelet Smarterra FitMaster Pulsar
What car enthusiast doesn’t like to drive fast? It is worth noting that many people simply dream of getting to work and then home as soon as possible, but traffic jams prevent this. Many hours of idleness in such auto queues leads to low mobility and, as a result, health problems. The same applies to those who like to knock on the keys of a PC keyboard. A fitness bracelet, such as the Smarterra FitMaster Pulsar, will encourage you to go in for sports or just walk in the fresh air.
This bracelet will count the steps taken during the day, convert them into kilometers and show the calories burned – in numbers. There is a heart rate monitor and alerts for various events. Importantly, this device has a sedentary reminder function if, for example, you have taken less than 70 steps in an hour. It is very convenient if suddenly you earn money while sitting on an easy chair. The device has a bright color display with a changeable design style, which is activated when you lift your wrist to your eyes. The battery from one charge lasts a whole week with the active use of the heart rate monitor.
ThiEYE T5 Pro Action Camera
Both the motorist and the computer scientist simply dream of being presented with an action camera. It can be used not only for capturing interesting moments on vacation, but also as a DVR. Good cameras, as a rule, are very expensive – up to 35,000 rubles. The best of them are GoPro HERO 8 Black Edition (CHDHX-801-RW) and Sony FDR-X3000R. For such a purchase, you need a good reason and the opportunity to go somewhere and shoot something. On February 23, such a gift should not be expected, but the idea is good.
Therefore, we searched, tested and found a very high-quality alternative – the ThiEYE T5 Pro action camera. It costs about 6200 rubles, but it has very high-quality optics that allow you to shoot juicy videos in 4K resolution with good stabilization and a very wide viewing angle. It has a less resource-intensive 2.7K mode, which is in no way inferior to the fashionable UHD in terms of detail, but in terms of volume, the files take up less space on the memory card. The display of ThiEYE T5 Pro is touch-sensitive and with its help you can quickly make quick settings. Included are various mounts, an underwater box and a remote control on the wrist. For bloggers, there is a streaming mode in FB. Importantly, the camera records very detailed and loud sound, which very few budget models can boast of. Of the minuses, we note only poor detail and noisy pictures in the evening and in low light indoors. You can find such a camera only on Aliexpress and, of course, by February 23 you will not have time to get it. But by the summer, the package will probably arrive, unless, of course, Chinese sellers extend their New Year holidays for another 3 months due to the virus.
External drive Seagate One Touch SSD
Reliable storage of information is the most important element of working with a PC. Any computer scientist will tell you this.

Just for such purposes, Seagate has a new 1 TB drive, which is no larger than a bank card in size. The device is positioned by the manufacturer as a premium, and therefore the price is very high. Materials and design are made in the same style – the top cover is made of gray wear-resistant fabric, which will harmonize well with any suit. The device has high speeds up to 450 MB / s, which is comparable to internal SSD drives connected to the SATA interface.

The cost of capsules with delicious coffee is from 20 to 40 rubles per piece. (sold in packs of 10), which is comparable in price to instant.
Another important point is to save the user from the cleaning procedure of the coffee machine (with the exception of periodic rinsing). After making coffee, all that remains is to remove the capsule from the tray and throw it away. If there is only one or two coffee lovers in the family in the morning, this machine will be an ideal option.
