Nyan Cat Gets Real

Nyan Cat Gets Real
For those not familiar with the Nyan Cat meme, I’ll just assume you’ve been living under a rock, or have better things to do than sit on the Internet watching an 8-bit Pop Tart cat farting a rainbow.

Commodore PET Gets New Life as Windows PC

Commodore PET Gets New Life as Windows PC
Remember the old Commodore PET personal computer from back in the late 1970s? With its trapezoidal built-in monitor, it was the most “futuristic” computer of its time, despite its relatively meager 6502 CPU and up to 32KB of RAM under the hood.

The Secret Lamp Dual-Purpose Light Saves Energy and Gets Creative About It, Too!
Combine conservation and some good old creativity, and you’ll get the Secret Lamp. I admit it also looks a bit like a novelty with its design and is a bit on the bulky side as far as table lamp goes, but you have to give it an “A” in both creativity and effort.

LED Lumadot Umbrella: Right Out of Blade Runner

LED Lumadot Umbrella: Right Out of Blade Runner
I’ve always liked umbrellas, especially nice large ones that you can stash in the trunk of your car. The flimsy folding umbrellas work for certain time, but then they break down.

The trend in HDTVs is that they are getting bigger and bigger. That makes me wonder how big is too big? Honestly, until I have a TV that’s the size of my wall, there’s still room to grow.
