From a grill cleaning tool to a chair that will make working from home more comfortable, David Novak of Gadget Gram has the latest in tech for work and play.

Pocket Shot 2.0 Slingshot, $49

The newly-designed Pocket Shot 2.0 is the evolution of the world’s first and only circular slingshot. The original Pocket Shot was dubbed the “baddest” slingshot on the planet, but it just got lighter, stronger and faster with the release of the 2.0. The Pocket Shot 2.0 is constructed of aluminum and it comes in three versions: all Black, Silver and Red, and Gold and Purple. The 2.0’s aluminum chassis operates on a set of three gimbals. The innermost gimbal holds the pouch and it can move freely in 360 degree rotation, which allows for easy aiming. Its patented, circular design allows users to load and shoot projectiles at two to three times the rate of a regular slingshot. The Pocket Shot 2.0 shoots projectiles up to 350 feet per second; recommended ammo includes 1/4-inch to 5/16-inch steel slugs, marbles, small paintballs (0.4 cal) and Airsoft. The Pocket Shot 2.0 includes aluminum rings, a silicone grip and two Pro pouches. The new Pro Pouch has a longer draw length than the previous pouch and is 2x more durable. Finally, the 2.0 has a custom silicone grip that wraps around the outer ring, giving you a non-slick point of contact and easy-to-shoot grip.
