One of the coolest accessories I have seen for the iPad is the Smart Cover. You have probably seen this cover with its magnets that keep the iPad 2 propped up in several modes for more comfortable use.
Depending on how old you are, Pica Pic is either a virtual museum or a time machine. Made by Hipopotam Studios, Pica Pic lets you play with a growing number of handheld games that were popular back in the 80s to early 90s.
We’ve featured several real world versions of the classic Super Mario Bros. coin block, but this one made by Bruno Pasquini tops them all, because it works just like its video game counterpart – punch its bottom and coins come out!
Artist John Karpinsky came up with these special designs of your favorite Star Wars characters for the Mexican Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos), which is a holiday to celebrate all of your family’s recently deceased members.
Since I got a new MacBook Pro 17, I’ve always been concerned about traveling with it. My last laptop’s lid got a bit scratched up in a backpack when I hadn’t been careful about what I put inside of it.
If there’s one complaint that people have about E-book readers (besides the fact that they’re not flexible yet), it’s that they don’t really replicate the feel of a real book. A team of researchers in Japan aims to change that, by creating a tactile feedback mechanism for digital books.
Any parent knows that one of the best days of a pregnancy is when you get a sonogram for the first time and look at the baby. If you are lucky, you can also find out what sex the baby is thanks to the wonders of sonograms.
Do you know what an astronaut calls that little turd that comes back up after you flush? A brown dwarf. Seriously, though, some astronomers in Hawaii at the W.M Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea have discovered what they claim is the coldest star even found.
Atari will be re-releasing some of their classic games on Xbox Live, and to help promote it they’ve asked modder Ben Heck to create an Atari-inspired Xbox 360 laptop. At first I thought he was going to stuff the guts of a 360 into an Atari 2600, but the case of the old console probably doesn’t have enough room.
Here’s a fairly future-proof hub for USB-gadget hoarders. Chinavision’s Warp Speed hub has 12 ports, 6 of them USB 3.0 compatible. Unless you’re really an early adopter, I think that’s more than enough.
There must be a market for these teeny tiny cameras, which is why Thanko just released another one. The MAME-CAM DX [JP] is miniature digital camera that’s currently only available in Japan, but you can probably find a way to get them in the US thanks to importers.
Up until now, the only ways I knew that you could shoot images in 3D was either with a dual lens camera, with two cameras, or some sort of motion-control rig. But thanks to a new lens technology being developed, we could some day capture full 3-dimensional images with a single, complex lens assembly.
Concerned about someone breaking into your house while you’re away? You could go with a conventional burglar alarm, but what sort of deterrent is a loud buzzer anyhow? This thing seems like a much better way to keep burglars on their toes.
