    Hey,
    Thanks to the internet and popularity of ecommerce loads and loads of interesting, innovate and useful items and gadgets and 'things' in general have become available to online buyers. Cost is also extremely reasonable in many cases.
    This thread is for sharing knowledge of interesting items.

    Setting some informal thread guidelines-

    1. Avoid 'thanks' 'cool' comments.
    2. Questions in separate thread please.

    Basically let this thread be about just items.

    3. If posting item/s consider including name of item, in case links go down
    4. Feel free to include non-electronic items, DIY stuff, useless toys (magnets), novelty items
    5. NO AFFILIATE LINKS !
    6. DELIVERABLE IN INDIA

    That's it!
    Check my next post for things I came across.

    These look great. Requires just a button battery, advertised battery life of 2 years. Meant for temporary notes/fridge messages. Available on Aliexpress

    Portable Free Standing Badminton Poles and net:

    A full badminton net and poles set, that can be assembled and disassembled.

    I actually bought this. Don't have anyone to play with, so its lying around. 77$ + Rs. 800 customs. Similar item on amazon.in is Rs.20000 .
    Requires 5 minutes to setup atleast. One guy can set it up if he knows what he is doing. But usually requires 2 people. Assembling can be pretty confusing for new people. Once assembled works really well, no chance of falling. Court lines were sorely missed though...

    UV light glue: Rs. 150 - 500+
    Had special liquid. Put liquid on broken stuff. Turn stick around and fire UV light on liquid for 5 seconds and the liquid hardens.
    Had bought from amazon.in , but too many fakes, duplicates. Got one with empty liquid refill. Had to return.
    Also I have no idea about safety of UV light source.

    Resistance Bands | Resistance Tubes (Exercise Tubes) : Exercise material. I was advised to get a resistance band for a shoulder injury. And I loved it! Its like a mini gym, sort of.
    Basically they are very stretchable bands and ropes. Come in various shapes and sets and strengths. loops, open bands, tubes, ropes, some with removeable handles etc..

    IMP: You want good quality ones or risk smacking yourself with a one that breaks on stretching, LOADS of fake duplicate stuff out there.

    Whole set of about 5 ropes with some handles seems to cost Rs. 1500. Bands - Rs. 800 .
    Don't know the best/ideal price, Rs. 1500 feels good. I had bought just 1 open band locally @ Rs. 600

    Suggestion: These are very versatile. see youtube for exercises that can be done with these.

    Tack it - Reuseable gum - Rs. 100

    [​IMG]

    The great thing is they are removeable and even reuseable. Can make any surface magnetic, in the sense anything can be stuck anywhere. Like chewing gum. Except they don't go dry/hard and are not gross.
    Not strong, but can be easily applied and reapplied for a variety of uses. I used them for creating hooks to hang wires, covering annoying LED lights , making sure wires don't come between a door , turn normal paper into sticky notes and you get the idea. Very useful. Highly recommended

    Oh and the original concept is some foreign blutack thing. Can't comment on that, it is available on amazon though.. This faber castell works well

    Discussion/Questions here please
