Barbershop Mirror Clock Makes Telling the Time Easier When You’re Getting A Haircut

Barbershop Mirror Clock Makes Telling the Time Easier When You’re Getting A Haircut
One of the things that’s pretty hard to do while you’re getting your hair cut is check for the time. You can’t just glance at your watch or check your phone for the time, not with your arms under that cape thing they put around you to keep the hair away.

Stormtrooper Leather Motorcycle Mask: Not the Helmet You’re Looking For

Stormtrooper Leather Motorcycle Mask: Not the Helmet You’re Looking For
I was just watching Revenge of the Sith on Spike last night, so I’ve had Star Wars and stormtroopers on the brain since then. So I was doing a search this morning when I came across this thing.

Shopping Cart Lounger: It Looks Cool, But I Doubt It’s Comfortable

Shopping Cart Lounger: It Looks Cool, But I Doubt It’s Comfortable
When I was still a kid, I used to sit in that little shopping cart seat where the frozen stuff goes. I remember pretending I was riding on a roller coaster while my mom pushed the cart while she shopped.

Englighted Design’s Circuit Board LED Tie Takes It Up a Notch
We’ve seen the Circuit Board Tie that Scatterbrain Ties has come up with. Now it’s time to take your geek pride up a notch by getting one that lights up.

Portal Co-Op Science T-Shirt Warms the Heart, Boggles the Mind

Portal Co-Op Science T-Shirt Warms the Heart, Boggles the Mind
I know I shouldn’t even bother, but I’ve been sitting here for a full minute trying to figure out how P-body got into that position and what it was that she was trying to accomplish in the first place.

Ringbow: Put a Ring on It and Enhance Your Touchscreen Control

Ringbow: Put a Ring on It and Enhance Your Touchscreen Control
While I understand that the flat touchscreens may make some people may want an external pointing device for their tablets, it seems to me that ancillary controllers defeat the purpose of actually having a tablet. Sure, typing is a pain, but from my experience, pointing and clicking isn’t.

Bike Cufflinks for the Well-Dressed Bicyclist

Bike Cufflinks for the Well-Dressed Bicyclist
We have seen our share of geeky cufflinks around here, like the USB cufflinks a while back. I personally have no need for cufflinks. The last time I held a set of cufflinks was in the late 80’s when my cousin got married, and I didn’t know what they were.

Eton’s Soulra XL Solar Dock: Bigger Panel Means More Tunes

Eton’s Soulra XL Solar Dock: Bigger Panel Means More Tunes
Eton’s last solar dock was pretty cool, but their bigger version, the Soulra XL, now comes with a larger, retractable solar panel that will juice this iPhone and iPod dock up for a much longer time.

IKEA Desk Lamps Turned Upside Down to Make Chandelier

IKEA Desk Lamps Turned Upside Down to Make Chandelier
IKEA Hacker reader Jason is one very creative fellow who recently had one of those so simple it’s brilliant ideas: a chandelier is just a bunch of lamps hanging on the ceiling, so why not put a bunch of desk lamps together to make a chandelier? Jason used three IKEA Tertial lamps, which are IKEA’s cheapest desk lamps at $9 (USD) a pop.

The Fukushima Plate Makes Sure Your Food Ain’t Garnished With A Side Of Radiation

The Fukushima Plate Makes Sure Your Food Ain’t Garnished With A Side Of Radiation
The nuclear crisis that followed after the earthquake and tsunami rocked Japan caused a lot of people to panic. This resulted in geiger counters and radiation detectors selling out on the web a few hours after it was announced that the damaged nuclear plants in Fukushima were leaking and that trace amounts of radiation had been found to cross the seas onto the shores of California.

Bento Book Laptop + Tablet + Smartphone = Modular Transformer Computer

Bento Book Laptop + Tablet + Smartphone = Modular Transformer Computer
While this scenario has been explored before, it’s the first time that I’ve seen something that might actually work well. The laptop becomes a dock for your smartphone and your tablet, allowing you to seamlessly use different devices without having to sync them.

3D Printed MicroSD Reader Poses as Micro Atari 810 Floppy Drive

3D Printed MicroSD Reader Poses as Micro Atari 810 Floppy Drive
There’s something so forgettable about microSD readers. That’s why I think that this little hack is awesome. It makes a microSD card reader look like a tiny Atari 810 Floppy drive. Rossum made this miniature using a 3D printer, which is even cooler in my opinion.

Rain Or Shine, All You’ll Ever Need Is the Fanbrella

Rain Or Shine, All You’ll Ever Need Is the Fanbrella
Earlier, I was singing to the tune of Corinne Bailey Rae when I was talking about the Vinyl Numbers Clock. Now here’s another thing that got me humming to the tune of another song. This time, it’s Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and I’m sure it’s a song that you’ll be singing in your head when you’re walking under the Fanbrella.  

Vinyl Numbers Clock: Go Ahead and Put Your Records on the Wall

Vinyl Numbers Clock: Go Ahead and Put Your Records on the Wall
“Go, put your records on, tell me your favorite song…” That line from Corinne Bailey Rae’s song just began playing in my head the moment I saw this quirky and creative clock. These clocks are the brainchild of artist Pavel Sidorenko, who created a whole range of these wall clocks from recycled 12″ vinyls.

Project iKinect Co-op Game Uses Kinect and iPhone as Controllers

Project iKinect Co-op Game Uses Kinect and iPhone as Controllers
If you thought the PS3 Kinect hack was absurd, then this Kinect hack from Rockmoon, a mobile game development company based in Singapore, will be no less ridiculous – a two-player video game where one player plays using a Kinect while the other player uses an iPhone as a controller.

Azimuth SP-1 Landship Watch Looks Like a Tank

Azimuth SP-1 Landship Watch Looks Like a Tank
I like wristwatches, even if I don’t wear them. I like to look at the cool designs and I, especially like the watches that have the intricate little gears and parts to the movement inside. I can only imagine how complex designing one of those watches would be.
