Here’s one that’s off the charts in the cool category; Air Swimmers.
Rather than blather on about the Air Swimmers, you’ve got to check them out for yourself:
They’re not cheap, but they’re also not expensive. For the price of a family dinner, you can get your own Air Swimmer
If my family is reading this blog post, I'll act surprised if this guy swims past the Christmas tree this year (hint).
On the cool-o-meter scale: This one swims to the top!

If you haven't watched the movie Avatar, stop reading this, go to the local movie theater, buy a ticket and watch the movie. After watching the movie you'll understand why 3D TV's are such a big deal.
Don't get me wrong, I've watched other 3D movies before, but never has a movie affected me like Avatar. After sitting through that movie, I decided to investigate the latest trend, 3D TV's.
According to PC world, Sony, among other TV manufactures are jumping on the 3D TV bandwagon. The only problem I have so far is that those funky little 3D glasses will become outrageously expensive.
I remember when TV Guide gave away 3D glasses for the price of the magazine. According to the PC World article, they expect 3D glasses to cost around $200! Can you spell G-R-E-E-D-Y?
Oh well, on the cool-o-meter scale, the 3D TV isn't quite rated yet since I haven't had the chance to watch one, but the movie Avatar, on the other hand…well, it's off the charts cool.

I came across this image while surfing the net. Unfortunately, the originating website from which this image came is no longer in service. I like to give credit where credit is due.
It appears that this fellow placed a tattoo on the underside of his right arm that gives the impression that he’s looking at you when he covers his eyes with his arm. I hope this guy stays in great physical shape because it could get a little ugly if he allow his arms to get saggy.
It’s got to be pretty freaky standing in back of him while waiting on line at the grocery store or playing hide-n-seek with the kids. Not particularly my style, but I guess it’s kind of cool in a Halloweenish sort of way.
On the cool-o-meter scale, I’ll call this one spooky.

The Magic Bullet folks came out with a grown up Bullet. It's called the Bullet Express and it's a Magic Bullet on steroids. It not only chops, slices and purees, it also juices, grinds and mixes proportions much larger than your old food processor.
The attractive thing about the Bullet Express is that your chopping quantities are not limited. Because the Bullet Express shoots the chopped items out into a bowl the size of your choosing, you can slice a huge bowl full of apples without having to stop, clean out the receptacle and start all over again.
Check out their online infomercial for a better explanation of the product.
Since I use the Magic Bullet just about daily, I'm sure I could find good use for the Bullet Express. Who knows, if it does all that it says it does, I can pack away both my juicer and food processor.
On a cool-o-meter scale, I find the Bullet Express to be extremely cool!

Here's a cool service that I came across. It's called Junk My Car.
The cool thing about Junk My Car is that you don't even have to have the title to the car to junk it. Now don't get me wrong, you've got to be the legal owner of the car, but not having a title does not stop you from donating it.
All you have to do is either call them toll free (1-877-JUNK MY CAR) or visit their website and set up an appointment to have your car picked up. Within 48 hours they contact you, make pickup arrangements and...viola! Your old car is gone! Oh, did I mention that it's a FREE service?
It doesn't get any easier than that. The convenience is unbelievable.
On a cool-o-meter scale, this one is conveniently cool!
