Mic Gadget 3-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit Adds SD Card and USB to Your Tablet
I really like my iPad but I have no illusions that the thing is perfect. There are many details I would change about the tablet if I could. One of those things is support for a memory card if for nothing other than putting photos onto my iPad and other things like music.

One of the most important questions known to man is one that is perhaps best not conclusively answered – the question of whether or not God exists. I’m sure the debate will continue and intensify as scientists gain more and more knowledge about the world, but what would be the effect of the definite answer to that question?

Mini IQ Cube Flash Drive is the Easiest Rubik’s Cube Ever
How quickly can you solve a Rubik’s cube? Don’t worry, it’s been a while since I’ve even attempted such a feat. I’d like to think that over the last few years my problem-solving skills have increased exponentially, and that I can tackle one in mere seconds.

Padlette iPad Handle Help You Hang on to Your Tablet

Padlette iPad Handle Help You Hang on to Your Tablet
The iPad’s size makes it a great portable computer. I think 10 inches is the sweet spot for browsing and watching videos. Unfortunately it also makes for an unwieldy gadget that’s hard to hold on to without a case.

The Father of Modern Video Games: Restored

The Father of Modern Video Games: Restored
A simple little game featuring a bouncing green ball on a laboratory oscilloscope is commonly thought of as one of the first ever video games, if not the first. Brookhaven Lab engineer Willy Higinbotham’s Tennis for Two was less a game and more a demo of manipulating a bouncing ball on a scope, but it is seen as the forefather of all modern games which started with PONG and Space War.

Star Wars Family Portraits

Star Wars Family Portraits
These Star Wars family portraits turned up over on Steven Quinn’s Flickr page, and they’re truly awesome. I can’t decide which one I like best, but I just love the uncomfortable look on Luke’s face in both of these portraits.

Japanese Dudes Invent Skydiving for Those Afraid of Heights

Japanese Dudes Invent Skydiving for Those Afraid of Heights
I always thought that skydiving would be cool, then I remember that being on the roof of the house is about as high off the ground as I care to go without actually piloting the aircraft myself.

Milwaukee Tool Company Makes a Cool Heated Jacket
I went hunting with my dad a few times when I was young. I hated it. It was cold and I lack the patience to wait for a deer to come strolling by to shoot. And when the deer came by, I didn’t really have the heart to blast the thing.

Have Santa Call Your Child, Courtesy of Google
As a kid, Santa tends to be a big part of Christmas. The more parents can do to make him seem real, the more fun and exciting it can seem. There are a lot of ways to do this, from taking your child to the mall to sit in his lap, to leaving milk and cookies for him on Christmas Eve.

DIY 3D Printer: Straight Out of Science Fiction Into Your Basement

DIY 3D Printer: Straight Out of Science Fiction Into Your Basement
Amazingly, this beautiful 3D printer was built by some guy named Jim in New York. Just like normal printers, 3D printers allow you to print stuff but in 3D. No glasses required! Although this seems straight out of science fiction, the technology has been used since 2003 in the manufacturing segment.

Official Minecraft Shirts Crafted

Official Minecraft Shirts Crafted
Any other company that approved merch for a game that’s still in Alpha would be laughed at. But Mojang Specifications is not any other company, and Minecraft is no mere video game. Honestly I’m surprised it took this long for any official Minecraft goodies to come out.
