Salty Pixels Salt and Pepper Shaker: Wait… Which is Which Again?

Salty Pixels Salt and Pepper Shaker: Wait… Which is Which Again?
Here’s a geeky salt and pepper shaker for Windows fans. The Salty Pixels salt and pepper shaker is shaped like the classic hourglass cursor. Why? Because the new blue spiral thingy in Vista and 7 doesn’t look like a shaker.

Long Form Library: Largest Etsy Item Ever?

Long Form Library: Largest Etsy Item Ever?
Ifsodoso’s Long Form Library is kind of amazing. It’s a self-contained library and reading nook, all in one. However, it’s quite large so it won’t fit in many places. The Long Form Library can store up to 400 books or a variety of CDs or other items, encircling its occupant in its center ring.

Titan Multi Tool Collar Stays Do More Than Just Make Sure Your Collar Stays Upright
It’s a drag to be at some formal event and have those darned colors go flip and flop all over the place. Not only will earn you reprimanding looks from the older people (hint: grandmothers and great grand aunts who always have a snarky comment ready to throw at you), it also looks, well, tacky.

Tetris Sticky Notes: Post-it Puzzlers
Retro gamers, here’s a great way to take notes, while at the same time playing a round of Tetris. These sticky notes come in Tetris-inspired shapes, letting you create puzzles as you write. Although I’m not sure completing a row of these actually makes them disappear from your wall.

MoonWatch Looks Perfect for Batman

MoonWatch Looks Perfect for Batman
The MoonWatch is a cool concept that was designed by Adrián Castro, originally conceived in 2004. Apparently, the designer updated that watch for 2011 with new materials and technology. The new design is pretty cool looking, and I can see the resemblance to the moon.

Nintendo Wii U Announced, Out in 2012, No Price or Release Date Yet
At this week’s E3, Nintendo took wraps off their next-generation home console, now known as Wii U (or is it “WiiU”?) As predicted, the new system will include both a traditional console unit, and a new controller with a built-in wireless screen and motion controls.

Nyko Zoom Play Kinect Range Reduction Lens is Great for Small Rooms

Nyko Zoom Play Kinect Range Reduction Lens is Great for Small Rooms
I have a Kinect for my Xbox 360 that we bought at Christmas for the kids to play. The problem was apparent right away. To get back far enough for the Kinect to read your motions, we were right on top of the couch.

Camera Lens Cap Holder Solves the “Where Did My Damn Lens Cap Go” Problem
When I first got my Nikon DSLR years back, I worried that I would drop the camera. After using it for a few months, it turned out that dropping the camera was far less likely than setting that stupid removable lens cap down and forgetting it.

DIY Tripwire Bang Alarm: For Protection and Pranks
Real life MacGyver Kipkay is back with another fun and useful hack. Like most of his creations, the best thing about the Tripwire Bang Alarm is that it’s made out of commonly found and cheap materials, like a mouse trap, some fishing line and tent poles.

This Bookcase is Just So Random, Don’t You Think?
We live in a world that continuously strives for order and arrangement. We found some elements and decided to arrange them according to their properties in the table of elements. We discovered numbers and put them in increasing order from 1 to a billion of a zillion.

Yarn Charging Cable: Encouraging Cats to Chew on Power Cords
No, this isn’t a new toy for your feline friend, it’s a concept charger for your phone and/or other devices. While it makes sense to have something that’s longer than standards cords, I wonder if cats everywhere will rejoice upon seeing this charger that’s designed to look like a ball of yarn.

Sexy Star Wars Pics: R2, I Can C Your 3PO Showing
I came across these interesting  photos by Homer Liwag, who mixes Star Wars and NSFW-ness. Check out on what exactly these droids are rolling on! I love how you have to stare at the photos a few times before you are sure that you’re looking at droids rolling on naked bodies.

Wappy Dog Gives Your Nintendo 3DS Another Dose of Pet Virtuality

Wappy Dog Gives Your Nintendo 3DS Another Dose of Pet Virtuality
Even the name sounds so downright adorable and targeted to kids ages twelve and below. You’ve probably already heard of the Sony AIBO, which was the first electronic toy that I virtually begged my parents to get me since they wouldn’t let me get a real puppy.
