So by now, the entire universe knows that Steve Jobs offered up free bumpers and cases for iPhone 4 users to help them with dropped calls from the so called “death grip” issue if you touch the lower left side of the iPhone while making a call.
So you’ve got some spare change lying around, do you? Who wants a stupid old piggy bank when you can have Boba Fett keep an eye on your coinage?
This Boba Fett bust bank is perfect for keeping all of your change in check, and should defintely keep your money safe from Jedi or Rebel scum who might want to steal your money.
iPad stands are a dime a dozen, but this is the first that I’ve seen that’s made out of plyboo, which is plywood made out of bamboo. I don’t know about you guys, but I find this mount strangely appealing.
Ah, another day, another strange Japanese product. This time, we’ve got a pair of googly eyes you can stick anywhere you’d like, and they blink. Yep, that’s it.
Through the miracle of modern suction cup technology, the Niko Dama blinky eyeballs will stick on just about any surface.
Over the last few weeks, I have come to feel that Apple might have designed the antenna on the iPhone just so they can sell more bumper cases. But with all of the negative media hype about the purported reception issues, I have a feeling that Apple’s press conference today is going to announced everyone is getting a free bumper case anyhow.
A couple of engineers from Dyson decided to build a balloon accelerator, which uses Dyson Air Multiplier fans to speed along a balloon on its merry way, kind of like what a particle accelerator does, albeit at a much slower speed.
Remember the $0.69 (USD) business card holder-turned-iPad stand? This is the exact opposite of that:
It’s called the PC Set Stand, and it’s made by Japanese company Resound. It was originally made for notebooks and portable DVD players, but then Resound realized that it works with the iPad too.
One little Flash “game” has caught the attention of the whole world. Okay maybe not the whole world, but at least the commenters of Rock Paper Shotgun, one of the video game blogs where pOnd was featured.
A picture really does speak a thousand words here. Modder Evil Nod managed to somehow cram a fully-functional Nintendo 64 system inside the body of an old SEGA Game Gear portable. Why? Why the heck not, I say.
The Swedish band Rymdreglage’s music video ‘8-bit trip’ is a stop-motion homage to retro Nintendo video games created using only LEGO bricks.
The video took over 1,500 hours to complete, since each LEGO-constructed character needed to be moved around individually, then photographed.
These new noise-canceling headphones from Sensgard don’t need any power to operate, which is amazing, since most noise-canceling headphones and earphones do need some kind of electricity to make their filters work.
The Sensgard ZEM headphones come with a simple amplifier.
If you like toys that can put an eye out and singe the butt hairs of the neighbor’s dog as it tries to drop a load in your yard, you probably remember that Wicked Lasers Spyder III laser I talked about a few weeks ago.
I guess the guys in China felt they had to try and keep up with Japan and their gigantic robot creations, and built themselves an enormous Optimus Prime of their own.
Standing 32-feet tall, and residing just North of the Bird’s Nest at Beijing’s Olympic Park, the giant Transformer might not be as tall as giant Gundam, but you have to hand it to the Chinese for their ingenuity.
eBay seller/Halo fan/Brute arms manufacturer smick6 is selling this nicely done replica of a Spike Grenade. It’s spiky.
smick6 used PVC, smooth-on urethane, aluminum and faux leather to make the prop. It’s 38″ long, the longest blades are 19″ end to end, and the whole thing measures 4.5 lbs.
When Haiti was struck by an earthquake last January, the country’s mobile phone network was out for two days, and did not resume normal operations until after a week, which made the situation ever more tragic, because it’s during disasters like that when communication devices are needed the most.
Let’s be honest amongst friends, we all end up flipping our USB devices back and forth in a vain effort to get the damn things to plug in at some point. You try to push your flash drive into the port, it resists, you flip it over and still not joy, flip it again and finally you cram the damn thing into the port in frustration.
