I happen to think one of the most useless inventions known to man is the decorative soap. My wife loves this stuff though, and has little flowers and dainty bars in the bathrooms around the house that we aren’t allowed to use.
While still popular among many gamers, Dell’s Alienware gaming computers have acquired a reputation of being way too expensive, particularly when compared to similarly spec’d computers. But until this coming Sunday, December 5, you can get one of the line’s most popular members, the m11x, for just $549 (USD).
With the popularity of Internet-capable portable devices, wireless access to the Internet becomes more and more desirable. That’s why Japanese electronics manufacturer Logitec – not to be confused with Logitech – recently released a portable wireless router that’s powered via USB.
This Alien wedding cake made the rounds on the internet about a year ago, but somehow I missed out on it. But like many things on the ‘net, everything old is new again, so I figured I’d give it a whirl and see how many people pick this thing up and send it to their friends again anyhow.
Is your car a beater? Do you drive one of those stupid little Smart cars? I bet you wish you had a V12 engine under the hood, don’t you. Well with this fun little contraption, you can’t have that, but you can at least make your car sound like a sports car.
I’m not the cheating sort, and I have little tolerance for those that are. As this story goes, a geek discovered somehow that his girl was cheating on him. Rather than risk jail time by leaking any “homemade movies” or having it come to fisticuffs, he did what any intelligent geek would do.
I ride a scooter daily, and even I don’t like riding with an open-face helmet. Full-face helmets are the only way to go. But that didn’t stop the French company Ruby from designing their open-face TRON-inspired helmet.
In Nurse Jackie, one of the main characters, who was a pharmacist, got replaced by some drug dealing machine. It didn’t take long before he got his job back because the machine was stupid. This robot is anything but stupid – and pharmacists, hospital orderlies, and drug dealers, beware!
Designers Chih-Wei Wang and Shou-Hsi Fu think that in the future, music albums could be packaged not just in a compact medium, but one that integrates a music player as well. Their concept device Skinny Player is a lot simpler and thinner than the iPod Shuffle, incorporating storage, a battery, a play/stop button and speakers into a Band-Aid-like form factor.
Do you like racing games and expensive furniture? Have I just got the thing for you! Race-Star Austria is selling the Converttable, a coffee table that transforms into a racing cockpit, complete with a bucket seat, pedals and of course a steering wheel.
Leave it to the Japanese to create yet another specialized robot to do a job that previously only a human could do.
Developed by Japan’s National Agricultural and Food Research Organization [JP] this award winning robot [JP] can delicately pluck individual strawberries from the vine.
Here’s something I bet you never knew. When used properly, Google Translate doesn’t just translate words. Nope, it’s actually a fully-functional drum machine if you know how to use it. Matt Dorosan, a reader of ours over on The Awesomer gave us the skinny on exactly how to make this little trick work.
The first time I caught wind of the real TRON light cycles was back in June when they were on eBay for $35,000. I wanted one so bad but sadly, my lottery ticket didn’t win. If you have the loot to buy one, apparently a few of them are still available and rather than just offering up pics for you to lust after, Parker Brothers Choppers is giving us a video of one geek riding it to get worked up over.
