4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One

4-Port PS3 Controller USB Charger for $8: No Reason Not to Buy One
…unless of course you already have a charger. Or you only have one controller. Or you don’t have a PS3. Seriously though, while this isn’t the cheapest PS3 controller charger out there, I’m pretty sure it’s the cheapest 4-port charger.

My First Autobahn Tape Turns Any Surface Into a Race Track

My First Autobahn Tape Turns Any Surface Into a Race Track
Sure, you could go out and get one of those schmancy Hot Wheels sets and build a race track for toy cars, or you could buy this inexpensive kit that lets you turn just about anything into a track.

Tales of Unspoken World: Like Canabalt, but 3d

Tales of Unspoken World: Like Canabalt, but 3d
I came across this unusual game over on IndieGames earlier today, and I have to say I like the way the early build is shaping up. A small independent game studio called Santa Ragione created Tales of Unspoken World after being inspired by this stylized case design from the Famicase art exhibit a few of years ago.

Imagine what it would have been like for your grandparents to have Facebook, YouTube, and Skype in their lifetime. It might have gone something like this.

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch: It’S 5 Minutes to Gridlock

Tokyoflash Traffic Watch: It’S 5 Minutes to Gridlock
Although I love Japanese watches, the one thing that I dislike about a lot of them is to take a few moments to figure out what the heck is exactly going on. The Kisai Traffic watch shows what looks like some random traffic, which is supposed to help you tell the time.

Flash Rods Cram Storage Into Toy Cars

Flash Rods Cram Storage Into Toy Cars
My son has no interest in anything resembling technology at this point in his life unless it has to do with video games or watching Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons on Hulu. He does like Hot Wheels cars though and has collected them since he was really young.

Ugly Pokemon Sculpture: Wanna Punch ‘Em All

Ugly Pokemon Sculpture: Wanna Punch ‘Em All
deviantART member EatToast made a series of Pokémon sculptures for this year’s Otakon. She calls them Ugly Pokémon, because they are ugly Pokémon. I mean, if I was Ash and I had to catch these…these things, I’d rather use my bare fists and fight the monsters myself than keep some as companions.

Solar-Powered USB Charging Hub With Flashlight: the Gadget Geek’S Swiss Army Knife

Solar-Powered USB Charging Hub With Flashlight: the Gadget Geek’S Swiss Army Knife
I don’t know if Brando’s cutting back on selling weird gadgets, but it’s good to know that they’re still coming out with cheap and practical ones. This one’s a 3-in-1 device, a 4-port USB hub/charger that can also be used as a solar-powered charger and a flashlight.

Floppy Disk Fridge Magnets: Ironic, Ain’T They?

Floppy Disk Fridge Magnets: Ironic, Ain’T They?
When I first saw these floppy disk refrigerator magnets, I thought they looked kind of clever. Then I thought about the simple fact that they would never be able to hold any data, thanks to their self-destructive magnetic properties.

How Much Does a Fully-Equipped Mac Pro Cost?

How Much Does a Fully-Equipped Mac Pro Cost?
The guys over at Pikimal set out to answer just that question, and they configured a Mac Pro with every option currently available. Here’s what they came up with…

Evercool Hero Laptop Cooler: Keep Your Boys From Burning

Evercool Hero Laptop Cooler: Keep Your Boys From Burning
I have spent more than my share of time playing around with new gaming laptops. The one thing I can say about the average gaming laptop is that you don’t really want to set them in your lap.

Cyglo LED Bike Tires Will Keep You Safe-Ish While Biking at Night

Cyglo LED Bike Tires Will Keep You Safe-Ish While Biking at Night
Even though I do bike at night, the idea of bike safety is relative. No matter how visible you are, if you do a bonehead maneuver, you’ve got no one to blame but yourself. However, if you tend to ride around cars a lot, then these LED tires will definitely make you more visible at night.

Beards for Dummies: a Chart Clarifying Beards to Non-Geeks

Beards for Dummies: a Chart Clarifying Beards to Non-Geeks
Online Schools is back with another great chart. This time around, they tackled the the history of the beard. We all know that a lot of geeks often sport a ludicrous amount of facial hair. This is the perfect guide for aspiring geekettes and geeks to make their way through this tangled and hairy maze of confusion.

Maelstrom: the Center of Epicness in World of Warcraft

Maelstrom: the Center of Epicness in World of Warcraft
Before I spread the good news, a little bit of Warcraft geography: at the center of the world of Warcraft (I’m talking about the place, not the game) is a gigantic rift, “a tumultuous storm of tidal fury and chaotic energies” known as the Maelstrom.

Naruse Pedal Puts the Breaks on Accidental Acceleration

Naruse Pedal Puts the Breaks on Accidental Acceleration
Japanese inventor Masuyuki Naruse believes that the current two-pedal system for braking and accelerating in vehicles is “dangerously flawed”. His point is that in situations when quick reactions are needed, sometimes people panic and press down on the gas pedal instead of the brakes, or sometimes press down both.

The Face of Washing Machine Destruction

The Face of Washing Machine Destruction
Remember that little clip we posted the other day, showing off the cataclysmic destruction left in the wake of throwing bricks in a washing machine? Well I can officially tell you that I like this new version better.
