Thermochromic Urinal: Color My World (with Pee)

Thermochromic Urinal: Color My World (with Pee)
This photo of what is probably the most unusual urinal on the planet has been making its way around the Interwebs this week. It’s simply titled “thermochromic urinal” and it’s definitely the most colorful urinal I’ve ever seen.

Fake Mario Game Hits iTunes Store, Vanishes Like Boo

Fake Mario Game Hits iTunes Store, Vanishes Like Boo
Somedays, I just wish that Nintendo would throw in the towel on the hardware business and just make games for other platforms. Can you imagine being able to play all your favorite Mario games on your iPhone, for instance?

ALPHA: The World’s Most Innovative Bike?

ALPHA: The World’s Most Innovative Bike?
While to many people, bike tech doesn’t seem to evolve much, there are refinements every year making bikes somewhat more efficient than just a decade ago. But that doesn’t stop some people from wanting a quantum leap in tech advances.

Get a Grip with Flipbac Camera Grips

Get a Grip with Flipbac Camera Grips
I have a Nikon D80 DSLR that has a big grip that is easy to get a hold of even if your palms are sweaty from the 657-degree Texas summer heat. I also have a little Sony point and shoot camera that is very thin and slippery that would be dead now if not for the wrist strap since it’s so hard to get a grip on.

Redbox to Start Renting Games June 17

Redbox to Start Renting Games June 17
Once we got a few Redbox kiosks in my area, I stopped going to the regular movie store to rent flicks. I grew tired of the late fees and having to wait in lines behind idiots while idiots at the counter tried to check them out.

Bob-omb Flash Drive Won’t Crash Your Computer

Bob-omb Flash Drive Won’t Crash Your Computer
…at least I don’t think it will. Of course the idea of plugging anything that looks like a bomb into one of your USB ports might be a risky endeavor. This is exactly the sort of drive that would be loaded with a keylogger, root kit or trojan.

Anger Management

Anger Management
Every time I think the Angry Birds have completely exhausted their 15 minutes of fame, something else comes along to give them a stay of execution from their inevitable extinction. So birdies, you get to live for another day in my mind, thanks to this…

Connect A Sketch Lets Two Users Work on a Drawing Without a Fistfight

Connect A Sketch Lets Two Users Work on a Drawing Without a Fistfight
My parents were crazy when I was a kid. They would get a single toy and expect me to share it with my brother. I’m not sure why they thought we were capable of sharing considering all the fights we got into over who had something before the other.

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Actually Drives Screws

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Actually Drives Screws
This might piss off some of you hardcore Doctor Who geeks out there, but I have tried to watch the show and it is some of the worst TV in history in my opinion. I would put the suck factor right up there with the time my wife forced me to watch America’s Next Top Model, only worse because there are no hot models with Doctor Who.

White iPhone is Thicker, Case Owners Upset

White iPhone is Thicker, Case Owners Upset
Apparently, the new white iPhones that are finally in stores after months and months of waiting are thicker than the black one. It was bad enough when the Verizon iPhone wouldn’t fit into cases made for the AT&T iPhone.

8-Bit Flower Bouquet Trades Petals for Pixels

8-Bit Flower Bouquet Trades Petals for Pixels
If you’re looking for a gift for a loved one that’s into video games, then this 8-bit flower bouquet will be super effective. It’s more personal, the flowers never need watering and they will never wilt.

WOW-Keys iPhone Keyboard: WOW, I Didn’t Realize We Needed This

WOW-Keys iPhone Keyboard: WOW, I Didn’t Realize We Needed This
I’ve never thought about using my iPhone as a touchpad or numeric keypad for my computer, but apparently CompuExpert thinks we should. Their new WOW-Keys keyboard features a prominent dock for your iPhone. It makes you realize that iPhones have become ubiquitous, but I wouldn’t want to use mine like this.

Photoshop 6: Pro Wrestling Edition

Photoshop 6: Pro Wrestling Edition
Drew Dernavich noticed that some of the tools and techniques in Adobe Photoshop are borderline violent – warp, flatten, slice – so he wasn’t that surprised with what he saw when he got his hands on an advance copy of Photoshop 6.

Subwoofer Chair is One Serious Rump Shaker

Subwoofer Chair is One Serious Rump Shaker
This was probably your parents’ worst nightmare. Thanks to Back to the Future, we all love gigantic speakers. Well, this subwoofer is pretty huge and it’s been made into a chair. Do you think it will be loud enough for you?

Rollin’ Justin the Robot Plays Catch

Rollin’ Justin the Robot Plays Catch
While it seems like a simple task, teaching a robot to catch a ball that’s thrown into the air is much harder than it sounds. But it’s no problem for the DLR’s robot, Rollin’ Justin, who’s been trained to catch balls in his grippy robo-hands.

Klipsch THX Ultra2 Home Theater Ready to Blow the Walls Out and Empty Your Wallet

Klipsch THX Ultra2 Home Theater Ready to Blow the Walls Out and Empty Your Wallet
I’ve always wanted to set up a home theater that had the kind of big, wall-shaking sound you get at a serious THX-certified movie theater. I always end up with something a bit more down to earth because I don’t want to completely piss off my neighbors – and my wife – by turning our house into a wall of sound.
