High-Tech, Low-Maintenance Fish Tank

AquaVista 500 fish tank

The AquaVista 500 fish tank hangs on your wall like a sleek flat-screen TV. At only 4.5 inches thick, it certainly takes up less space than a traditional fish tank. For $330 you get the tank (with your choice of background and frame), a steel wall mounting bracket, and a few basic aquarium accessories.

But the AquaVista doesn’t just look good. With a built-in LCD control panel, pump, and lighting and heating systems, the AquaVista is completely automated. That means less of a hassle for would-be pet owners. Maintenance takes as little as 15 minutes a month, giving you more time to admire your little underwater friends.

With Location-Based Technologies’  PocketFinder, you’ll never have to worry about lost pets or luggage again. The GPS device is about the size of a cookie, and is available in several versions: there’s PocketFinder Luggage, which can be slipped into a suitcase before you let it out of your sight. Using the company’s website or automated phone service, you can look up your suitcase’s location in over 100 countries. PetFinder can be hooked to a pet’s collar, offering peace of mind for those who are squeamish about injecting their furry friend with a microchip. The original PocketFinder is a good bet for outdoor enthusiasts or caretakers of the mentally challenged.

PocketFinder is available for $129.99 plus a monthly service fee for the locator service. It runs for seven days on a single charge, alerting you via text message when it’s time to recharge.
