Here’s a fun project to do if you have a couple of unused keyboards lying around – a picture Rubik’s Cube with function and number keys on it instead of colors. Making one’s not as easy as Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V though.
Whether you’re still a young minifig or a grown Mindstorms expert, the officially licensed LEGO lunchbox is for you. The eight-stud container-brick measures approx. 3″x 4″ x 8″. I’m not sure if it interlocks with other LEGO lunchboxes though.
The iRobot 110 FirstLook is built to serve the military and law enforcement. From the looks if things, that’s pretty obvious from the get-go. Usually, you don’t need a robotic spy cam unless you are defusing bombs or conducting surveillance.
There are plenty of infrared lenses and night-vision cameras out there, but this cheap little digital camera is a really affordable way of getting into IR photography. Naturally, any photos you take will look a bit strange and bizarre but that doesn’t stop the Midnight Shot NV-1 Night Vision Camera from being a fun little cam.
Assuming you like to carry a wad of cash in your pocket instead of a wallet, here’s a fun little invention that keeps your bills in order without looking like anything is there. The so-called “Invisible Money Clip” lets you organize your cash without a bulky wallet or money clip.
The designer of this cool Spotify radio prototype is Jordi Parra. You might remember this dude as the guy that had a hand in making that cool piggybank last month. The latest design you see here is all Parra, and he might even take it to Kickstarter to get the funds to make it a reality.
Any time a week before and a week after April Fools’ Day, when I see something cool that looks like it is too good to be true I always get cautious. There is nothing in the description of the RE35 that screams “I’m a Fake” but the product seems like it’s something that would be very hard, if not impossible to make.
Everytime I hear that someone has been Tased, or a reporter has allowed himself or herself to be Tased I hope they crap themselves. I would think if you have been holding in a deuce all day and you get hit with a Taser you’re going to have more than a turtlehead poking out.
Artist Olly Moss imagines a controller from an alternate universe, where gaming companies focused on hardcore gamers instead of the casual. “You are the controller”? Pffff. You’ll need a couple of friends to operate one of these Next Generation controllers.
I get the point about cooling an Xbox 360. Those suckers overheat pretty quickly, but the Nintendo Wii? I’ve never heard any complaints over that console’s heat, but that didn’t stop Angel OD from the Bit-Tech Forums to water-cool his Wii, in this completely superfluous hack.
Despite their much publicized argument regarding Flash, Adobe can’t just ignore the market share of still loves Apple, as shown by their recent presentation at Photoshop World 2011. Photography Bay uploaded a portion of Adobe’s demo of a conceptual iPad version of Photoshop that has support for layers.
I don’t know if I’d like to have one in my home, but BRC Designs’ new Binary Table 01 is entirely composed of outdated and discarded electronics. The whole structure consists of old computer towers and built from a patchwork of circuit boards.
Got 105 spare ping-pong balls, and an equivalent number of LEDs lying around? Yep, thought so. Well if you’re looking for something to do with all those random objects, the guys over at Hack A Day have a little spare-time project for you – a ping-pong ball clock.
The clock looks a lot like the ones you might see on the outside of a bank, but uses ping-pong balls as the diffusers on top of a 15×7 matrix of LEDs.
