Portable Grill

Summer weather means grilling, but what if you’re away from home? You can’t exactly pack up the backyard barbecue and load it into your trunk. Or can you?

The Weber Traveler is the perfect solution for camping, picnicking, or tailgating. The grill is attached to the cart for easy transport. It folds up for travel or storage and fits in the trunk of a car. The grilling surface is 320 square inches – big enough to cook a whole meal.

This summer, take the grill wherever you go. The Weber Traveler sells for about $400.

Silent Coin Miner

Miners don’t just dig underground. In the modern world of Bitcoin and other digital currencies, “mining” uses your computer to validate electronic transactions in exchange for some digital cash. The more powerful the computer, the more mining you can do, and the more you can earn.

That’s how the digital gold rush began. And what’s the best way to make money in a gold rush? Sell shovels and pickaxes to prospectors, of course! People are buying new computers for the sole purpose of crypto mining. The more numbers they crunch, the more the miners earn. Some people have multiple computers running 24/7, just for mining.

The ultimate setup is something like this: the Liquid Cooled Hybrid Silent Miner. It’s a custom-built mining computer, loaded with eight powerful graphics processing units and lots of fans to reduce the heat and noise. It weighs about 60 pounds and requires two 20A or 15A breakers to power it.

How much for this money-making machine? Just $51,000, plus a rather large monthly electric bill.
