SkyMall Mashups

JR Conlin always does these great write-ups on items of interest that he pulls out of the SkyMall catalogs that you always find tucked into the seatback pocket on airlines. In homage to JR as well as a wink to the mashup culture of silicon valley, here’s my version of the genre.

“What would happen if you cross the mashup culture of Silicon Valley with the fanciful gadgets proferred by the fine folks at SkyMall?”

Stress Relieving Wristband (74140j) and the Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor (EW3039sj)

Automatically send soothing biofeedback massages whenever your blood pressure trips over a preset limit. One minute you’re arguing you’re point, the next you’re fast asleep.

Keep your coffee warm while on the go. Combine with the Three Station Buffet (hlgbcs997j) and you can cook your chili beans, refried beans, and fajitas as well. Stuck in morning traffic? No problem!
