Polaroid XS100 Extreme Edition Action Camera

Buy this this $250 Polaroid Action Camera for only $95. You have until midnight USA Pacific Time to grab this camera at this price.



Typical online price is closer to $200, and I believe this is an earlier 2013 edition of the camera, but half price still seems like a good deal. I’ve seen decent reviews for this sports camera and have considered buying it for myself. Features include 1080p, very low light performance, waterproof to 10 meters, 170 degree wide angle lens, comes with handlebar and helmet mounts. This is the top selling action camera at Amazon.com. It’s not quite as good as a GoPro in my opinion, but for under a C note I think it’s worth it.

Purchase the Polaroid EX1000 Extreme Edition Action Camera here.

Bicycle action figures

In America, we can buy action figures for superheroes, soldiers of fortune, anthropomorphized turtles, and Legos.

In Japan, they sell character action figures on bicycles. Local bicycling otaku Jill Q (2013 Bike Commuter of the Year for Santa Clara County California) found this figma for Yuusuki Makishima, a teen cyclist from “Yowamushi Pedal,” a popular anime about the adventures of high school competetive road cycling in Japan.
