Gui Magnets Are Sticky Little Helpers
GUIMagnets are small, flexible magnets with GUI objects on them that you can use for fun or to aid you in your website design. Ostensibly they can be used to create a “website on a whiteboard” but that bit of copy should probably be changed to “website on a magnet board” because if you’re like me, you just tried sticking a magnet to a whiteboard as a test, and it fell on the floor.

If your kids aren’t getting beat up in school enough for your liking, then you could try your hand at these felt lightsaber pencil holders and see if that kicks it up a notch. Seriously, this is a pretty cool idea, but there is one problem: they don’t actually resemble lightsabers.

Donkey Kong Jenga is Monkeylicious

Donkey Kong Jenga is Monkeylicious
Remember the beginning of Donkey Kong? You know – the part where Kong climbs to the top of the building, stomps his feet, and the girders all fall diagonally into place? That’s sorta what this new version of Jenga reminds me of.

Sure, these little robots might not be able to drop-kick or head a soccer ball – but that doesn’t mean they’re not cool. This mini robot soccer (or football depending on your homeland) game looks like lots of fun for you and your friends when you need a break from slaving away in your cubicles.

Vulcanus: Heavy Metal Casemod by Blacksmith
You could do all your computing on a lightweight MacBook Air, but a real manly man would use this computer that’s so beefy that it could smash your lightweight girly-man system into a fine pulp. Hand-forged from steel by an honest to goodness blacksmith, Vulcanus is one bad mofo of a PC.

The Ply concept phone has so many features stacked into its wooden shell that I had to read about it twice to fully grasp its awesomeness. Each layer holds a gadget with a distinct function, including a phone, game controller, photo printer, and projector (among other things).
