Pelican Products has a nifty product for the engineer that has almost everything — a headlamp.

The 2780R uses LEDs and offers three levels of intensity. Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, via a USB charger, operation time varies by intensity: high — 558 lumens/2 hours; medium — 213 lumens/3 hours; and low — 95 lumens/7.5 hours.

The water- and weather-resistant polymer lighthead also has a second “downcast” LED for lighting the space immediately ahead and below. The whole head can be pivoted 70 degrees. The forward beam has an estimated effective range of 127 meters.

The battery pack mounts on the rear of the head harness for balance. It also contains a battery level indicator and red safety light.

The 2780R ships with cloth head harness and black, white and luminescent covers.

Price: $119.95.

Orion Platinum: Synth Beds for All

Wouldn't it be nice to pop open some program and create our own 105-bpm shuffle drum bed with all the posts and hits right where we want them? Or some thunderously buzzy techno bass line no one else has? To rise to a level of production brilliance heretofore unrealized in other products -- and perhaps by other producers -- you may want to explore computer-based music generation.
