Scanadu Scout: Doctor Doctor Text Me The News
Tech By on May 24, 2013
It’s kind of a stereotype that us men don’t like going to the doctor’s office — “What? This open, gaping, puss-filled leg wound? Nah, trust me, it’ll heal by itself” — so that’s what makes this bit of tech all the more enticing. The Scanadu Scout can measure your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and more just by placing it on your forehead (you can turn and cough for old times sake if you like). Instantly all your vital stats to your smartphone. But please, resist the urge to tweet that.

Saunas are great, but 9 times out 10 they involve sitting three feet away from an old dude’s bare sack. Is ridding yourself of this problem worth $41,000? Of course it is. The Sauna Box is a self-sufficient sauna that uses both solar power and a wood-fired stove. The whole unit is built into its shipping container, and it features hook-ups for your electronics. Yes, more hook-ups for your gear, less hook-ups for No-Pants Stanley over there.

Us guys aren’t exactly known for our cleanliness. I once used two spritzes of Armor All to freshen up my pits after an invigorating game of air hockey. So with that in mind comes Dude Wipes ($10 for a box of 30). These moist towelettes give you a portable way to tidy up with a fresh-scented blend of Vitamin E and Aloe on a man-sized disposable sheet. Does this mean you can dwindle down your showers from five a week to three? I’m gonna say yes.
