Newly formed company Smartfish Technologies teamed up with the New York-based Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) to come up with a wireless mouse designed to prevent and alleviate wrist strain. The result? A bobblehead mouse. Well, not exactly but the TRU:MOTION mouse’s “thing” is that it pivots and conforms to the direction and angle of your hand’s movements, so that your wrist is never in a fixed position.
Can mental or emotional stress damage our DNA? An experiment has shown that the presence of gray hair means that the melanocyte stem cells in hair follicles – that ones that become melanocytes that give color to hair – have badly damaged DNA.
I just came across this nifty new free app over on the iTunes App Store that lets you use your iPhone or iPod Touch to control video games on your computer.
WifiPad provides you with the ability to control any game that uses the keyboard on your computer over a Wi-fi connection.
Numbers. Who need’s em? Well, except for all that math stuff. But when it comes to something like telling time, why should we be restricted to the same ol’ boring clockfaces? With the Word Clock, you can leave all that behind.
Puzzle Quest is almost universally recognized as an addictive phenomenon, the kind of game that sinks its claws into your face and doesn’t let go until your fingers start threatening to fall the hell off.

The Lavod Bikeman LFB-615 clips onto a sturdy mount on your bike, and lets you play your favorite digital tunes through its built in amp and directional speaker.
There’s absolutely nothing sadder than a cookie that’s not for eating (except perhaps the level of hyperbole in this sentence). We could be talking about the best cookie ever–and these would make the list, if there was a list, and being edible wasn’t a requirement–but if it’s not for eating, it’s a dealbreaker.
Fairytale Fights will almost certainly be remembered. It’s all about using one fairy tale legend to beat up other fairy tale legends, in crazytown stages based on fairy tales, all while wielding the most ridiculous weapons imaginable.
This isn’t about being amazing at Guitar Hero; lots of people are amazing Guitar Hero players. No, this little patch of the internet is dedicated to being amazing at doing the obvious (and I mean that in a good way).
Breaking news: chemists have stumbled upon the recipe of doom: Polonium, Oxygen and Phosphorus, or PoOP.
Problem is, the price stinks: the PoOP mousepad sells for $16 USD at Mousepad Warehouse. There’s no way I’m paying $16 for a mousepad.
Joystiq asked Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network Operations, if Sony would ever bring Trophies – the equivalent of Xbox 360’s Achievements – to the PSP. Upon hearing the question, Lempel fell on his knees and screamed, “Daaaamn youuu Salazaaaaaar!”
Digital Trends have reviewed Panasonic’s DMP-B15, The world’s first portable Blu-ray player. So is it worth the $800 USD price tag? Well, the player does get a 7 (out of 10 I guess), but after reading the review my short answer has to be NO.
Put an end to the frustration of lighting up your grill or starting a bonfire with the Mag Fire firestarter. It’s capable of producing white-hot 3000ºC (5500ºF) sparks, even in humid, stormy or freezing conditions. You can even use it as a flare of sorts to call for help.
Check out this clever casemod which combines the shell of an old SNES console with the brains of a modern PC.
Modders quangDX and DuPPs took an old Super Nintendo they had lying around, splayed open its guts and married it with the internals of an Acer Aspire One A150 laptop, then dubbed it the aaSNES1 (is that pronounced assness-one?).
