WingLights 360 Mag is a very cleverly designed new gadget that can be mounted on the ends of the handlebars of bikes and e-scooters. It provides a dual safety function using LED lights. In the “light mode” there's a bright white LED facing front with a bright red LED facing back so cars, trucks, other bikers can see your position on the road from all angles. A 360 lens is designed to make the lights highly visible, especially at night. But wait, there's more!!

It's the Poruary Anti-theft Backpack. The main pocket zipper is hidden in the back of this bag, the part that is up against your back. That way there's no way a thief can get to it with you knowing about it.

Dick DeBartolo

Episode 1610

It's the 40th Anniversary of the first Sony Walkman..and I own one of the them. So Dick returned to Dick's Gadget Warehouse to pick it up. Yes, it's the Sony Walkman Cassette Player TPS-L2. Thanks to the being featured in the Guardians in the Galaxy it's becoming famous again. Because of that wildly popular show that the price of them on eBay is quite high. I saw two on eBay for an asking price of $500, and one with an asking price of $625.00. They're used of course, because like mine, they're 40 years old.
