As is evidenced by a couple of our most recent posts, women and girls can be into electronics just as much as dudes. So why not wear your inner geekette around your neck with one of these cool circuit board necklaces.
When I first saw these things, I honestly didn’t know what to say, but you get used to ridiculous headgear pretty quickly around here. These MIDI hats were designed by Sunny Oh and Anna Obikane, and allow you to make music.
While I have to admit that I do think that the whole 3D trend is sort of over, these fashionable glasses from a pair of Norwegian twins are certainly less ugly than the ones we’re used to at movie theaters.
Well this is pretty cool. Before Matt Groening had his Sunday night Fox TV shows under his belt, he needed a side job to pay the bills. He paired up with Apple to make a student’s guide titled “Who Needs a Computer Anyway.”
If you have a bunch of gadgets and gear around your house that uses AA batteries like cameras, video cameras, or RC toys you definitely need some rechargeable batteries. Sanyo makes a line of rechargeable batteries called the Eneloop that have a lot of storage and can be recharged a bunch of times.
I’m always coming across all sorts of interesting inventions over on Kickstarter, and this one is definitely one of the more unusual ones I’ve seen lately. The TurboHarp ELX is what its inventor calls “the world’s first and only fully-electric harmonica.”
Astronauts take some really cool photos of the space station and other stuff when they are in orbit. I always sort of assumed that the cameras used were already on the ISS and whoever wanted to shoot some cool space pics would just borrow one.
A few weeks back I mentioned the Cadence 4-bit binary wristwatch. That watch was cool, but if you are like me, it doesn’t matter how cool it is if you don’t wear a watch. This is the Cadence 4-bit Binary Wall clock and it uses the same time telling method that the wristwatch uses.
There are hobbyists, and then there are people like Nic Case. His obsession with remote-controlled toy cars has led him to create the Schumacher Mi3, a record-breaking toy car that can easily outrace even the one you have in your garage.
Jeri Ellsworth wowed a lot of people at the recently held Maker Faire when she turned up wearing something straight out of cartoons: a light bulb over her head that was activated by her brainwaves. Okay so it’s not exactly like the visual metaphor since it doesn’t discriminate between great ideas and things like “I have to pee”.
If I had a million dollars, I’d buy a new car. Maybe I’ll build my puppy a fancy doghouse, like the one Paris Hilton built for her Chihuahuas. Or maybe I’ll invest it in the stock market, maybe open up a franchise of some fast food restaurant.
While I don’t deny that paintball guns are fun, they can get quite messy which is why the Xploderz Water Pellet Guns look so cool. The ammo they shoot won’t make anyone too dirty, but you’ll get the same satisfaction as from paintball guns.
One thing that I had always wanted when I was still a kid was a trampoline, right in my own room. Sad to say, my parents didn’t get me one. They were always the overprotective kind and reasoned that I would probably fracture my skull or break a leg if I had one.
In this day and age, most people get motivated to do things only because of instant gratification. Feeling lonely? Get a puppy. Feeling dissatisfied? Go on a shopping spree. Feeling sad? Go get drunk.
Maybe it’s become our culture because so many things out there just scream “instant.”
