Balanzza Truco Carry-on Bag is the Geeks Travel Companion
All geeks tend to travel with lots of gadgets. I travel with cameras, video cameras, portable game consoles, smartphones, and tablets. The thing I always worry about is if I have to go by plane, the electronics will get broken in the bins or under the seat if the bag is a bit too fat.

Google Goggles Now Solves Sudoku Puzzles
Ever played a game of Sudoku? I went through a phase a little while back where I was obsessed with the game. I love solving puzzles, and these fancy number games were rather addictive. I made it a goal to be able to beat them without any sort of note-taking.

Kinect Hack Turns You Into a Superhero

Kinect Hack Turns You Into a Superhero
When I first saw the Kinect demo for Forza I was extremely turned off. But almost every day, hackers are revealing the true potential of Microsoft’s device. You see, I think the greatest thing about the Kinect isn’t that it lets you control games with movements or gestures.

Triumph Motorcycle Parts Used to Make Household Items Rock

Triumph Motorcycle Parts Used to Make Household Items Rock
I really like products that are made out of stuff that most of us would never think to make them from. These new Triumph Motorcycles product prototypes are exactly what I mean.
