Your Perks: 1) 20% off a USB-powered device that turns any flat surface into a touchpad mouse. (Yes, including your desk.) 2) Aerodynamic umbrellas that can withstand gale-force winds. 3) A wearable camera that uses sensors to take the perfect shot. It’s the third eye you didn’t know you wanted.
Things to do for January 10, 2014
