Wikireader: the World’S Most Semi-Trusted Encyclopedia at Your Fingertips
Don’t you just love Wikipedia? Whether you’re a high school student writing a paper on some obscure old or dead person, a tech blogger who knows nothing about tech, or a lowly prankster who wants people to think, even for just 50 seconds, that the name “Microsoft” is really a description of someone’s primary sexual characteristic, the crowd-sourced encyclopedia has something for everyone.

Dyson Fan Multiplies Air, Costs

Dyson Fan Multiplies Air, Costs
Unless the blades of your electric fan are quite dirty – mine are, need to clean them – I don’t think you’ll feel that the air coming from the fan is “choppy”. You’ll still feel that steady stream of air right?

Caribbean Finger Steel Drums: DIY Desktop Reggae

Caribbean Finger Steel Drums: DIY Desktop Reggae
Ever wanted to know how to play the steel drums? Nope, me either. Maybe it’s the fact that I just don’t have room for a couple of sawed-off 55 gallon oil drums in my living room.

Sony Soundville Ad Fills Icelandic Town With Speakers & Music, Serenades Citizens & Sheep

Ice Tube Vfd Clock Kit: Time to Get Retro

Ice Tube Vfd Clock Kit: Time to Get Retro
There are certainly a ton of different ways to tell time, but this retro-modern digital clock is definitely one of the cooler designs I’ve seen in a while. The Ice Tube clock ($70 USD) gets its brilliant blue display thanks to an old-school Russian-issued VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) tube.

Ecohime Covers Up Your “Bathroom Noises” [Weird Japan]
Nobody wants to talk about it, but who really wants to listen to your gaseous emissions? Not me. This weird gadget from Japan lets you mask your bathroom activities while you “do your business”.

Pinkified Xbox 360 Controller

Pinkified Xbox 360 Controller
As far as custom controller go, this particular project isn’t loud (though yeah, bright), it isn’t overdone, and it isn’t sparkling with a bank of flashing lights… and that’s probably why the final effect is so entirely sleek and professional.

Get Hydrophobia in Slow Drips or in One Big Flood
Hydrophobia doesn’t really sound like something you’d want, really–water is important, after all, and fearing it is bad–but when it’s in the form of an multiplatform game? Well, that may be more palatable, particularly when it looks like this.

Teeny Tiny R2-D2 Ready to Hack Open Tiny Blast Doors

Teeny Tiny R2-D2 Ready to Hack Open Tiny Blast Doors
MAKE is calling this the world’s smallest R2-D2, and who knows? It might be. I’m not sure whether or not there’s a movement out there dedicated to fitting a beloved ‘bot into a tiny shell, but if there is, this guy’s creation may just be the champion of all time, since this R2 makes that AA battery he’s standing next to look pretty hefty. He moves!

NES Controller Flash Drive is Like Spy Tech for Geeks

NES Controller Flash Drive is Like Spy Tech for Geeks
There’s something unique about this unassuming looking NES controller – and no, it’s not that it’s a flash drive. Gaming peripherals turned storage devices are a dime a dozen, but this flash drive requires a secret activation code.

Bottle Tops: Dunce Caps for Canned Drinks

Bottle Tops: Dunce Caps for Canned Drinks
When I first saw this I thought it was one of those so-simple-it’s-brilliant kind of things,  but then I remembered how dirty the tops of canned drinks usually are. No rat piss on my Coke please, thank you.

Sasqwatch: Are You Willing to Pay $50 for an Awesome Pun?

Sasqwatch: Are You Willing to Pay $50 for an Awesome Pun?
This is one of those products that’s good for a 5-minute laugh – an hour tops if you’re drunk. Presenting: Sasqwatch. Heheh. Sasqwatch. Sasqwatch. Cracks me up. Oh I’m sorry man, I didn’t, I was just kidding.

Ugliest Speakers Yet: (Evil) Clown Sounds!

Ugliest Speakers Yet: (Evil) Clown Sounds!
We’ve featured some weird and ugly speakers here over the years, but this is definitely the one to buy if you’re looking for something really hideous to listen to your tunes on.
