5 Weird TARGET Gadgets
– Hey what's up guys, Keaton here, so we're back (car beeps horn), let's get it, episode three, he knows what it's about! You guys voted in the iCard, go up there, vote right now for which store we check out next. But we're here at Target, I don't even know where it is, and I'm about to find five weird gadgets, and let's do it. Okay, so I'm in the store right now, and I just had a thought. If I grab a basket, or a cart? I'm thinking we're gonna go with cart, cos it's about to get big. We're about to really spend the budget. Let's figure out what kind of stuff they got here. I don't know if you guys know this, but Cheese Nips, they're my favorite snack in the world.
For a dollar, I know it's not a gadget or a product, but I'm spending $5. The first that I wanna check out is this retro arcade machine, can play 300 games, for 15 bucks. I don't even have, well no, I have an Xbox, I don't play my Xbox, just (mumbles) you guys aren't following me, make sure you are, I will roast any of you in Modern Warfare two, that's my game. But retro games, like a little thing like this, I could play this for breakfast. 50 bucks. I gotta keep it on the low. We've been spotted.
Witness, stylus, 20 bucks. Yo, I remember when these things were like a dollar, and I feel old saying that. But for $20, I wanna see if this can make my Snapchats really get arts, like I should be in the art institute with something like this. You guys know, I have the worst luck with drones, but I think I finally found one that really is for me. We got a drone here for 30 bucks but what's cool about it is, it says easy one stick flying. That's the only reason I'm picking it up. If I can fly this with one stick, there's no way I can crash it.
It says no FAA, so we're covered there, I didn't know that was a thing they're saying now, and indoor flying. If I can fly this indoors with one stick, it's the best $30 ever. Whoa! I was checking out everything here at Target, and I have to get this. It's the spins at five bucks, you get a light up spinner. I know I promised myself I would never spin another spinner again, but for five bucks you get a double light effect like, this guys looks like he's having so much fun. And I don't even know if it's a guy!
It's a hand. This hand looks like it's having fun. I made it! For 20 bucks I gotta, Techsmartt is the name, I like to play the game. That sounded really cool in my head. Yo, the Game of Phones. Basically this is a card game that tests your smartphone skills, and what's cool is, this is right up my alley. This is something that I would love to play with friends. You get to find the best selfies, take photos of other players, and show your worst funniest texts. I got some bad texts.
There were so many colors to choose from but I wanted to get the teal one. I've been checking out tons of Bluetooth speakers and headphones, that kind of seems to be the thing at these stores. One day I'm gonna find out which store has the best. Maybe it's Target, for five bucks, let's find out. I was just about to walk out, I'm already at five weird gadgets, but I think I found something way cooler than that stylus. We got a movie making studio kit. You just put your iPhone on there, and you look like you're all set to go, Z-Screen technology.
I don't really know what they're saying, looks like you can make your own movie and put your own characters in it, I gotta find out more. And how much is it, 20 bucks? Instead of getting a $20 stylus, I'm getting a movie kit. I gotta stick to my word. I'm not getting the fidget spinner, I'm actually pretty stoked about it. Instead, I'm getting these headphones, and I know it looks like a little kid's pair of headphones. It's not. There's something cool here. They're headphones with a volume limiter. What does that mean?
We're gonna test the limits, let's get it. Every time I come to Target I wanna buy everything in this store. We're already at five weird gadgets, but these look even crazier, bands you wear and they move to your music and you're dancing. I wanna check these out, but next time. Drop a like in this video if you guys want me to come back to Target. I need to check these out. And, I also, need to get an Easybake Oven, it's the greatest gadget ever. Already got Cheese Nips. So this is pretty much all we got.
We got a pretty good list, we found some really weird stuff at Target. And for the Cheese Nips, I really need 'em, I really need five boxes, if I get anything less I'm gonna look like this guy, and no one wants that. So let's head on back to the studio, and check 'em out. (rattles cart) – Have a good one. – So I spent roughly $125 minus the $5 worth of Cheese Nips. Those were totally worth it, if you guys wanna check out anything in this video, I'll leave a link down below, or do the best that I can.
The first thing that I wanna check out is this generic speaker? The speaker's kind of interesting because it was only five bucks, so my expectations are naturally low. Let me know what your expectations are, for this speaker, in the comments. Now how low? Five and below, because well, it was $5 and I also checked out another speaker in the original five below video, check that out right up there in the iCard, after this video wraps up. I'm just gonna tear on into this thing. I mean, a generic $5 speaker, it's gotta sound good,
It's wireless, you got your Bluetooth action. It's a nice mint color. That's pretty groovy, I like that. You got your generic switches, you can actually put in a microSD card, so if you wanna store your own music, kind of get away from the Bluetooth, you can do that too. You even get an included cable so that's awesome, you can hardwire it in. But I'm gonna get my iPhone out, and we're gonna pair it up. I'm gonna play my favorite song right now, by Taylor Swift, Ready For It. (song begins to play) Full volume.
(inhales through teeth) Uh, uh. Let me know what you guys are thinking, my expectations were low going into it. It sounds really muddy and muffled, it's only five bucks so I can't get that mad. But let's try out another song. (song begins to play) It's from Silicon Valley, so that's always good! It's a $5 speaker. I think it's worth it. Next up is something that I wasn't originally gonna get. It caught my eye because they're headphone, not your ordinary headphones, there's actually a show, it's called Beat Bugs.
Speaking of, I wanna just quickly watch an episode and see what we're getting into, before I put these on my head. I gotta be careful these days. (muffled speaking) Alright, so that's the show. I don't really know what else to expect, let me know in the comments if you guys have heard of this show before. But the reason why I picked these up is there is a volume limiter. It's kid-safe technology, parent approved. I wanna see what this volume limiter's all about. Just gonna devour into these headphones. Wow, that impressive!
Woo! Okay, so we got our headphones all out. These actually feel pretty nice and durable. They look like the Beats by Dr Dre headphones, of course, most headphones do these days. Why are the sides so thick? Do they fold up? They don't even fold up! They feel pretty cheap, I don't even know how much these things cost, I wish I woulda kept that fidget spinner instead of these things, or was it the stylus? I don't even remember. So putting them on my head, yeah they definitely feel like cheap headphones.
I feel like they're gonna surprise me for some reason. Got a pretty good seal. Okay, so let's go ahead and play some music. To properly test the volume limiter I found the loudest video on YouTube, and before I've even played the song, it says danger of death! Do not watch this video with headphones! That's why you guys come to watch it, this is why you come to this series. We're dropping to see what weird stuff's at stores you wouldn't naturally expect. Let's see how well this actually sounds. It's kinda quiet. I'm at full volume.
Yeah, it doesn't even sound that loud. I'm at full volume. The speaker at full volume sounds way louder, normal headphones sound way louder. Oh wait, oh my, yeah, the volume is definitely limited. It's just screaming. If there wasn't a volume limiter and I had a real pair of headphones, I'd probably be on my way to the ER right now, with blood just coming out my ears. I'm just gonna pull it out, and just see if it sounds any different. Yeah that'll melt your face right off. I'm actually happy I had a safe pair of headphones.
Thanks, Beat Bugs! Now this is something that I was really interested to check out. It's a drone. And you know, every store has a drone. I know Toys R Us had that lit unicorn drone, it's actually a fluffy drone. I'm sorry, I got that wrong, you guys told me in the comments, if you haven't seen that video, check it out right up there after this one ends. This entire weird shopping series has been super lit. So basically, this drone here isn't like your ordinary ones. It can do some tricks which I don't actually know how to do, I'm not that skilled of a drone flyer.
So let's open this up. And the drone just went flying. I didn't control it though. This is what you get, you get one of these tiny drones, I've been seeing all of these on Amazon, and you get a controller too. I wanna try these tricks. I think it's done with the stud button right up here. If this thing can flip over, that'll be totally worth it. So, let's try this out. Okay, got it, how, what, how, how? That's just bad, Keat, you're a horrible pilot. So far I'm not impressed, let's try this again. Whoa, alright, it flies right off the table.
I put the drone down over here just to give it a little more breathing room. Let's try this, okay, alright, alright, alright, alright, it's flying! Will it hold, can we do this stunt? Woo! Yo, I'm not that bad of a pilot. I gotta do this stunt, that's the reason I bought it, eight stunts, that's eight times the fun. (drone whirring) Nope, that wasn't a stunt, come on drone! Don't hurt me now, don't hurt me. Alright, so in auto mode it's actually flying for the most part by itself. C'mon, do the trick.
(drone whirring) What was that?! It's pretty cool but only five minutes of flight time, that's kind of like a dealbreaker for me, you can get one way cheaper on Amazon. I'm not that bad of a drone pilot. I actually got it up in the air. This thing actually caught my eye in Target. I didn't know what it was, like, it's kind of hard to figure out what it is. But it's a stop motion movie kit. It's called the StikBot, you need to get their app, I already got it downloaded, and basically you can make your own movies and get the green screen effect.
So these are your little characters here. You actually get a tripod mount for your phone so you can set up your phone and work with any phone. These are your two prop boxes, this is a proper movie kit. So in the before, you got your guys dancing around, doing your thing, you can see it's a green screen, and then the way green screen technology works is, you can actually swap out that image known as a chromakey, your boy actually knows something, and you can have these guys in the desert or wherever you wanna be. And, you got prop boxes, it's like they give you everything. I don't even need to go to Hollywood. I'm making my own movie right from here.
Whoa, you get your own little kit. How stop motion works, in case you guys don't know, basically it takes a picture every single frame, and to get one whole second, I'm gonna need 24 pictures. So this could kind of take a while. We're gonna get it set up, so we've got Joe right here, that's the name, and these little figures have suction cups in 'em so they're actually gonna stay. Stick 'em on right there. Stick it on right there. Let's actually watch the video that they made, just while I continue to get this set up, and then we're making our own movie.
(dramatic music) I don't think I can make a movie as great as that, but we got the app all fired up here, I'm in video mode. So how this works is you hit the red button right here, looks like a face. Like this guy's face is on the app. You can zoom in with the controls, and when you take a photo, you shoot the red button, it's gonna actually show you on the screen, so when you wanna move the characters, it shows you where he last was. That's pretty cool, it's actually a really easy way to make a stop motion movie.
Take another photo. Now I'm gonna move the orange guy. This is a lot easier than I thought. This is actually kinda like a professional movie kit, you can adjust your exposure, your focus, everything. I'm gonna get rid of the ghost image there, just kidding, that's actually the most important feature. We're gonna keep the ghost image on. You can play with your green screen, set that up, select image from library or camera roll. Am I moving it, it's not that easy to control your phone and keep everything set up. I'm just trying to show it best for you guys. Let's see how bad this looks. Not bad!
It looks like they're kicking each other! So you can swap out the whole color, I can put these guys in a desert if I wanted to. This is actually pretty cool. Now when I saw this thing in Target, I got really excited. It's a retro arcade machine. I like playing games, and it has over 300 games. The fun doesn't stop there, it was actually on sale. Like I had to check it out. And before we check it out, drop a like on this video if you guys are stoked for episode four, I'm really pumped for you guys to see it, and make sure you guys subscribe so you don't miss it. Turn on notifications too, ring the bell,
Let me know in the comments if you're in the notif squad. I'm pretty much done plugging myself, but this thing, it's gotta be awesome, like there's no way it can suck, so let's open it. Oh wow, you actually get a little retro arcade machine. And you can see, you get four types of game modes. You got sports, shooting games, puzzle, arcade. Let's try out arcade games. It plays a fun beat, I'm liking this. Alright, we're in the arcade game now. We got Mole Whack, there's so many games. I could only imagine, there's like four pages for each section. I guess that's how you get all 300,
I'm not even gonna count. So let's go to Amusement Park, just check this out. Stage one. (faint midi music plays) Okay. We got lost a life, no! How did I die?! Alright, we're gonna play a different game. I suck at this game. Let's try a sports game. Can't suck at that. VR Tennis. Virtual reality tennis. Oh yeah! Woo!
I'm crushing it, I'm about to take the game here. Bam, just like that, I beat the computer. This thing is so much fun! It's so portable, you could throw this in a backpack. And you got 300 games ready to go. I think this thing right here is the most worth it. Let me know in the comments if you guys like it or hate it. Bonus item, I had to pick this up. This is called Game of Phones, it's a card game, and I know it's not a gadget, but it kind of is a gadget, let me know in the comments what your favorite Game of Thrones character is. Mine's gotta be Jon Snow, that's kind of the pun here, Game of Phones, Game of Thrones, you guys get it.
It's not that hard. That's the reason I picked it up. So it's basically a game of smartphone skills so, you play this with your friends, and as long as you guys have your phone on ya, pretty much everyone, you're gonna find out something you didn't know about your friend. Like, finding who takes the best selfies, taking photos of other players. There's gotta be some juicy ones in here. So it's just like your normal card game. Gonna grab one deck here. Here are some of the options you could get, if you were playing this, I'm so playing this at the next party.
I now have a card game I can bring. First card, lowest battery percentage wins this card. Scroll through your photos with your eyes closed and pick one at random. That's scary. Play a voicemail you saved. That, oh, I'm just in trouble. Show your best selfie, I have a pretty good one. Show your first photo in your camera roll. So you guys get it, it's a phone-oriented game, that's a lot of fun. You're probably gonna have so many laughs with your friends, probably embarrass the crap outta yourself. Show the last picture of a person you took
Before the game started. Amazing. Best phone background wins this card. This game is lit. If there's one item that I'd recommend picking up, it's gotta be the retro arcade machine. Let me know in the comments which item you guys think is most worth it. This thing is amazing.
