USB Gadget Allows Your Dog to Twitter as Well! Yippie!
If you haven’t got enough tweets to read, you can make sure that you pollute the Twitter-verse even further, thanks to this USB device, which allows your dog to tweet as well. The Canine Twitterer allows your pet to automatically send tweets, which can then be posted to any social networking site.

Dell Inspiron Duo: Netbook and Tablet at the Same Time

Dell Inspiron Duo: Netbook and Tablet at the Same Time
Originally tablet computers were mostly convertible laptops. Last month, Dell showed off their new spin on things, and here it is in action. Surprisingly, this thing might actually hit the retail market pretty soon. This is just a teaser video, but it’s a safe bet that this convertible netbook will make it to market.

Potato Crisp Hand Keeps Your Fingers Grease-Free

Potato Crisp Hand Keeps Your Fingers Grease-Free
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m the kind of geek who spends most of my time in front of a computer or with a controller in my hands. Naturally, I’m going to want food during this time, and chips are an easy go-to snack.

Linux Foundation Credit Card: Help Nerds Out Every Time You Shop

Linux Foundation Credit Card: Help Nerds Out Every Time You Shop
The moderately powerful PC you yourself put together: $600. Your choice of Linux distro: Free. Having the geekiest credit card: Priceless. The Linux Foundation credit card has no annual fee, low starting APR (although as Forever Geek’s Noemi Twigg pointed out, the APR inflates from 0% on the first month to 12.99% on the 7th month), and most importantly, funds raised from the credit card will be used in technical events for the Linux community, as well as travel grants for open source community members.

8-Bit Head Costume: Not Strong Enough to Break Bricks

8-Bit Head Costume: Not Strong Enough to Break Bricks
Greeting card illustrator Dan Liuzzi originally wanted to wear a giant version of his head for Halloween. Why? Who knows? Maybe he secretly thinks his head is too small, and Halloween gave him a great excuse to correct his anatomy, even for just one night.

Wall-Climbing Robots: Real Life Crazy Climbers

Wall-Climbing Robots: Real Life Crazy Climbers
We’re not really sure why anyone would go through the trouble of building humanoid wall-climbing robots like these ones. There are certainly faster ways to scale a wall. Maybe they made them just so bloggers like me would write about them?

Live Crab Vending Machine: Only in Japan. Oh Wait, This Thing is in China.

Live Crab Vending Machine: Only in Japan. Oh Wait, This Thing is in China.
I guess that China was feeling a little behind the curve from Japan and their wacky inventions, so they decided to come up with their own. What you’re looking at here is a vending machine that dispenses not candy bars or cans of soda, but live crabs.

Fender Outs Rock Band 3 Stratocaster Controller With Real Strings

Fender Outs Rock Band 3 Stratocaster Controller With Real Strings
I know I’m not the only one who has been jamming to a tune on Rock Band and thought I could probably play the real guitar that good too if it were a game. Squire is a Fender brand and the company is famous for the Stratocaster line of guitars.

Game Racing Ottoman

Game Racing Ottoman
I don’t know what possessed an Australian modder to come up with this hack, but I have to say that I’m surprised that it hasn’t popped up before. Lyshco is a member of the Overclockers in Australia forum and he just finished working on this racing ottoman.

Sesame Street Flash Drives Hold Video and Photos of Kids’ Favorite Characters

Sesame Street Flash Drives Hold Video and Photos of Kids’ Favorite Characters
I am old enough now to admit that Sesame Street creeped me out as a kid. I don’t want some grumpy, green monster living in my trashcan or a giant yellow bird dropping by to play.

Haloipt Shows Off Tech That Can Charge Electric Cars Without Wires

Haloipt Shows Off Tech That Can Charge Electric Cars Without Wires
I am forgetful when it comes to car maintenance. If my car didn’t ding to tell me when I had 50 miles of driving range left on a tank of gas, I would know the roadside assistance dude by name.

Nooka Zub Zayu: the Truly Ambidextrous Watch

Nooka Zub Zayu: the Truly Ambidextrous Watch
Stylish watches aren’t just made in Japan. That’s what Nooka has proven time and time again. Their latest watch is called the Zub Zayu and I have to say that it looks pretty unique. This new watch features the largest LCD display in Nooka’s Zub collection.

2-Foot Tall at-at is the Coolest Star Wars Toy Ever

2-Foot Tall at-at is the Coolest Star Wars Toy Ever
When I was a kid, I envied one of my friends, as he had a giant Millenium Falcon. It wasn’t big enough that his Han Solo and Chewbacca action figures could fit in the cockpit, but it was still sweet.

NES Controller Chair Also Good for Ab Workouts

NES Controller Chair Also Good for Ab Workouts
The sharp eyes over at GameSniped spotted another rare gem at eBay. If you still have your NES console and a couple of driving or flying games, dust ’em off and bid for the Video Game Super Chair controller.

Bang! Lamp Gives You Something to Shoot in the Morning

Bang! Lamp Gives You Something to Shoot in the Morning
When you wake up in the morning, do you ever feel like shooting something? Oh, me either. For those weirdos out there that hate the annoying sound of your alarm going off after only six hours of sleep and feel the need to take it out on an inanimate object, I’ve got something for you.
