Mint Floor Cleaner: Square and Simple

Mint Floor Cleaner: Square and Simple
The Mint cleaner is designed to be used with reusable microfiber cloths or, if you want to waste money, Swiffer cleaning cloths. Unlike the Roomba, the Mint can only clean hard floors. I’m not sure if it can dock and recharge itself; the official website mentions no such feature.

R2-D2 USB Vacuum Cleans Up the Dark Side of Your Desktop

R2-D2 USB Vacuum Cleans Up the Dark Side of Your Desktop
This R2-D2 vacuum cleaner from Taito is perfect for picking up those bits of orange Cheeto dust you left all over your desktop. The tiny handheld Artoo gets his power from your computer’s USB port and probably provides just enough suction to clean up equally tiny bits of dirt and debris.

Mili Power Skin Protects Your iPhone and Juices It Up

Mili Power Skin Protects Your iPhone and Juices It Up
Sometimes I feel like the horrible battery life on my iPhone is some sort of cruel joke Steve Jobs has played on me personally. Play games for 45 minutes and you had better be close to an outlet if you want to make any phone calls. Thankfully, MiLi has announced a couple new products for the iPhone to help keep it juiced up longer.

The Teeny Tiny Pinhole Camera

The Teeny Tiny Pinhole Camera
This amazingly small pinhole camera was created by Francesco Capponi. As you can see, this camera is actually so small that it can fit on your thumb. Francesco calls this his Mini Lomo Pinhole, and although it really isn’t a Lomo, it’s incredibly small and cute, and this tiny pinhole camera can actually take pictures, which is even cooler. Here’s an example what the photos that this little camera take look like.

If Anakin Had This, There Would be No Luke or Leia

If Anakin Had This, There Would be No Luke or Leia
Freakin’ Darth “Condom Head” Vader. Translated, it says, “I will not be your father!,” which is kinda stupid. Shouldn’t it say “I will not be a father?” If your child isn’t born yet, who are you talking to Vader?

Romain Jerome Watch has Rocks and Ash From the Eyf.. Eyjfa.. From That Volcano in Iceland

Romain Jerome Watch has Rocks and Ash From the Eyf.. Eyjfa.. From That Volcano in Iceland
Romain Jerome is known for turning tragedy into luxury, and its latest masterpiece is no different. The Eyjafjallajökull-DNA watch has rocks and ash from the volcano that’s currently throwing fits in Iceland. Say what you will about the absurdity of the concept, but I think we can all agree that this is one fine-looking timepiece.

Cynomy Demolition Robot Concept: Remote-Controlled Destruction

Cynomy Demolition Robot Concept: Remote-Controlled Destruction
One of the best things about robots is that they’re not alive, which means choosing between a robot and a human to perform a risky task is a no-brainer. If it gets wrecked, no one’s going to be in pain or grieve.

Tao Ma’S Watch Concept Puts the Screws to Time

Tao Ma’S Watch Concept Puts the Screws to Time
We’ve certainly featured our fair share of unusual watches here on Technabob, so I figured why not continue that tradition with this watch that replaces normal hands with screw heads. Conceptualized by China’s Tao Ma, the MEN2014 watch would replace the hour, minute and second hands with screw heads which have a small red mark at the end to indicate the current position on the dial.

Dell Thunder Android Smartphone Pics Storm Onto the Scene

Dell Thunder Android Smartphone Pics Storm Onto the Scene
In a week that’s been filled with stories of Apple’s smartphone leaks, I guess Dell got a little jealous and let some photos slip out of their own new mobile handset. The Dell Thunder looks pretty slick from these early pics the guys over at Engadget managed to get their hands on.

Weta Halo Xbox 360 Casemod Explodes Onto Ebay

Weta Halo Xbox 360 Casemod Explodes Onto Ebay
What you’re looking at is the millionth Xbox 360 to be sold in Australia and New Zealand, and it’s going to be auctioned off for charity. The customized Xbox 360 was created by Richard Taylor and the Weta Workshop.

Devon Tread 1 Motorized Watch Looks Awesome, but Crazy Expensive

Devon Tread 1 Motorized Watch Looks Awesome, but Crazy Expensive
I have said before that I don’t wear watches. If I were a billionaire and could just throw away money on cool stuff that I don’t really need, I would buy this new Devon Tread 1 watch. This thing has a clear polycarbonate case that is supposedly bulletproof.

Game Boy Advance Sp Gets an Original Gameboy Retrofit

Game Boy Advance Sp Gets an Original Gameboy Retrofit
It’s true that the original Game Boy is a timeless piece of portable video gaming. Heck, I know that I spent countless hours trying to beat my best at Tetris. In this great little hack, the familiar green screen is gone.

Hp Designjet 3d Printer is Here, but We Still Can’T Afford It

Hp Designjet 3d Printer is Here, but We Still Can’T Afford It
When Hewlett-Packard promised to make 3D printers more affordable for the masses, I’m pretty sure they didn’t mean bums like you and me who just want to print 3D models of bacon, Patlabor and Olivia Munn (not necessarily in that order) will be able to get one.

Flushing Noise Generator Still Doesn’T Cover Up the Smell

Flushing Noise Generator Still Doesn’T Cover Up the Smell
Apparently in Japan, the toilets in many public female restrooms are equipped with an Otohime (“Sound Princess”). Otohimes produce a flushing sound when activated, presumably to mask lady farts or umm… other sounds that may be produced while on the throne.

Archetype: Lampshade or Shadelamp?

Archetype: Lampshade or Shadelamp?
Designed by Goodmorning Technology for Milan-based lighting store Luceplan, the Archetype lamp combines the classic shape of a traditional lamp shade with modern LED technology, resulting in a device that is as familiar and approachable as the lamps we’re used to, but is far more efficient and longer-lasting. The Archetype has an aluminum exterior and a polycarbonate diffuser, with the LED cleverly hidden inside, which means that the shade is the lamp itself.
