Griffin Elevator Review

The Griffin Elevator is a very handy piece of kit to have if you have a laptop made from quality products and with a certain elegance and want to match that to a stand without breaking the bank. The Griffin Elevator really enhances the desk with minimal effort.

Essentially, the Griffin elevator is two pieces of bent metal with some pieces of rubber set strategically in order to avoid any scrapes or scratches to either the desk or the bottom of the laptop. There a couple of pieces of clear plastic to hold things together. Most of the elevator screams quality.

The main idea of the Griffin elevator is to lift your laptop to allow you to regain a little bit of desk space, in reality, this doesn’t quite work as there’s not much you can put underneath it save for a temporary storage for peripherals or documents. The elevator still occupies the space under the laptop with the legs and feet, however, it still gives you somewhere to put things in out of the way. Once used on the desk it’s quite difficult to go back as you realise just how much space you’re actually saving and it actually makes your laptop a great deal more comfortable to use.

In an effort to make the elevator portable Griffin have added some transparent plastic to hold the supports together this can be removed and the elevator can be compacted down to fit in a laptop bag or suitcase to be taken with the user. One slight issue with this is that the transparent plastic used in the separator scratches is quite easily when the metal legs are removed and inserted. This is unfortunately quite visible because the plastic is transparent.

It would have been nice to see some for a cable management built into the Elevator, detachable/interchangeable clip to support your laptop’s charger cable.

Other alternatives on the market tend to be highly overpriced whereas Griffin has managed to get the combination of price and quality just right. Little issues like these scrapes are easy to overlook when you consider the price of this item.

Presenting the Pisher for little boys going to the toilet

2016-11-04Forget potty training toddlers – older boys need training in toilet etiquette too… Enter Pisher! Launching in 2017 this device is the answer to all the wishes of parents of boys worldwide. It’s a new electronic toilet training device for kids. Many mothers will no doubt agree that they are fed up with the cleaning aftermath of their children going to the bathroom. Pisher is the first electronic toilet training device for little and big boys, projecting a playful electronic target inside the toilet to capture your child’s attention and help them take aim, so there’s no need to clean up after them every time they take a trip to the bathroom.

The idea came about in 2015 when best friends, Mira and Sarit, became exasperated with their continuously messy bathrooms. Together they co-wrote “Pisher’s Adventures,” an exciting children’s book about aliens visiting planet earth in search of fuel for their spaceship. Together with the help of little boy Pisher and his dog, Buddy, they discover a surprising solution to the alien’s problem… by peeing on the spaceship they have lift off!

In conjunction with the launch of the book, Sarit and Mira also created the Pisher toilet training device.  This ingenious invention is placed under the toilet seat (fitting to all types of toilets with its universal grip) and then, when the lid is raised a cheerful sound will be heard and an image, taken from “Pisher’s Adventures,” is projected on to the ideal spot for your little boy to aim. Children will then be rewarded once they’ve put the seat down (another important skill in life) with another congratulatory noise – mission accomplished!

The usual boring challenge of toilet training is now transformed into a fun and enjoyable process for both you and your child. With every purchase of the Pisher toilet training device, parents will also receive a copy of “Pisher’s Adventures,” so the whole family can be entertained by Pisher and his adventures.

Sarit and Mira are not only trying to ensure clean bathrooms worldwide, they’re also wanting to give back to others. In each Pisher package, you’ll also receive a Harmonia coin which your children can donate to a number of worthy causes on the Pisher website. So whether your passion is animals or helping less fortunate children you can make a simple donation and the money will be taken from Pisher’s own revenue.

Pisher will be launching on Indiegogo at the beginning of 2017 to raise funds. Backers and the first 300 customers to their site will be offered a special reduction to only £39 rather than the retail price of £55.
