You can get in a lot of trouble for fondling some types of wood in public. You can handle the Motz Tiny Wooden Power Speaker in public all you want though and no one will mind, unless you are playing some crap tunes like Yanni or something.
It’s amazing how much a design can change in a year.
Back in January, we showed you a different kind of earbud that promised to prevent tangles. This was a great idea, because tangled cords are the number 1 cause for destroyed earbuds* (due to the owner getting frustrated and just breaking them).
Microsoft’s Xbox 360 add-on has been a hit not just with gamers but with modders and hackers as well. While only a few of its launch games are truly unique and imaginative – Dance Central and Kinectimals come to mind – more and more people are discovering a variety of non-gaming related purposes for Kinect, from rendering a person invisible to controlling drones.
While I do see the photographic beauty in these exploding Xbox 360 consoles, just like the Apple products that were shot, I wonder if his is just a colossal waste. Admittedly, it makes a bold statement.
So go figure that the largest iPhone ever built is actually made out of 56 iPads. It’s kind of awesome in its ridiculousness. The iPads have been slaved together to showcase the Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light iOS app.
Designer and iconographer Susan Kare made some of the icons that appeared on the original Macintosh personal computer. Her limited edition icon prints make for a unique gift for the long-time Apple fan.
If you’ve ever used a table saw, you’ve probably had the horrific image of your fingers going flying off if you slip.
The incredible SawStop system uses capacitive sensors to detect when you accidentally touch the deadly spinning blade with your flesh.
If you like green vehicles, you might think of green cars like the Prius or maybe the Tesla Roadster. Motorcycles can be green too and a company called Mission Motors has pulled the wraps off an awesome looking electric racing motorcycle called the Mission R.
I can vividly recall as a child hating to go to my grandmothers annual Christmas Eve dinner. I was always afraid Santa would come by, see I wasn’t asleep and then leave with my toys. I freaked out each time I saw one of those red lights on a tower to warn aircraft thinking it was Rudolph’s nose.
Zynga has teamed up with rapper Dr. Dre to stream the video that goes along with the first single from his coming album within the Mafia Wars game. The single is called Kush, and the game will also get some virtual goods that are exclusive and limited edition.
Most places in Japan won’t let you have any animals. I guess this is why this iPhone/iPad cat app makes sense. Honestly, if I wanted another cat, I’d just go out and catch one of those stray kittens, even if my place doesn’t allow any animals (it doesn’t, and we’ve got a cat and a dog anyway).
How would you like to buy yourself a Porsche for Christmas? No, I’m not talking about the racing wheel that we showed you yesterday. I’m talking about one that you can actually use to move you from point A to point B.
After years of being someone else’s steed, Yoshi finally gets his own ride, thanks to custom action figure maker/Flickr user/Nintendo super fan Donald aka Kodykoala. I love the details on his custom Yoshi mech, from the bolt-like markings to the scratches and faded paint.
