Noby Noby Hat (and Scarf!)

Noby Noby Hat (and Scarf!)
I’m not even gonna lie: the hat in this post is expensive. At $63, that hat should not only keep my head warm, but also style my hair for me, thus saving precious time in my morning routine. I’m pretty sure that’s not the case. Instead, this hat is imbued…

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke
I’m not sure if PETA would approve of Sarah Dery’s mousetrap design. On one hand, it provides captured mice with a decent resting place, and it makes it easy for you to toss them out the window while shrieking give them a proper burial. On the other hand, the mouse…

$15,000 1989 Collector’S Item Legend of Zelda… Plate. as in the One You Put Food on.
Millions of people around the world are starving, and will probably kill themselves for food. Wait that doesn’t make sense. You know what else doesn’t make sense? That someone out there thinks he can charge $15,000 (USD) for a plastic plate. Actually I’m not sure if it’s really plastic, it…

Once upon a time, making a toy was as simple as whittling a rough shape in a piece of wood, or tying a few rags together. Today? You’ve got to have LEDs and microchips up in that business. And you thought all those batteries were complicated. Using a hodgepodge of…

Computer Repair Book Educates Through the Power of Flowcharts
Let it be known that on this great and blindingly sunny morning I accomplished yet another first here at technabob: I got dibs on the word flowchart. As unbelievable as that sounds this is indeed the first post here that contains that superficially geeky word. But a flowchart itself, if…
