I like cool home theaters. The last time I mentioned a themed home theater it was Star Wars-themed and very cool. If you lean more towards the pirates of yore or Pirates of the Caribbean for your tastes in film than science fiction, this pirate-themed theater should suit your style.
When I was a kid, I built a few of the model rocket kits that you could actually fly with little solid rocket motors on the bottom. I thought they were pretty cool, but I would never want to build a life-size one that could actually hold a person in it.
I am a gadget fiend, and my wife and kids have more than a few gadgets as well. That means that the outlets in my office where everything ends up getting plugged in are packed with some having surge protectors plugged into surge protectors.
Transferring files to and from iOS devices isn’t as simple as it should be. Instead of having it recognized by computers as a storage device for easy file handling, we have to use an intermediary program, either syncing via iTunes or a program like DropBox.
These speakers were created by the design duo Joon&Jung, based in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and they’ve come up with something that completely handcrafted and beautiful. The initial purpose was to design speakers that were handmade, yet still dish out optimal sound.
There’s something to be said about simple and good-looking watches: they make telling time a lot easier than those strange LED watches from Japan. Thankfully, the Cyclops from Mr Jones Watches is very easy to read, and it looks quite nice as well.
The people who make such awesome papercraft stuff never cease to amaze me. Remember the World’s Smallest Nintendo DS Lite from a few years ago? Or the papercraft Android mascot that was a popular desktop decoration last December?
Luis de Matos of the Department of Informatics at the University of Beira Interior is working on a Kinect hack that could be commonplace within the next few years, whether the resulting product actually uses Kinect-like technology or not.
I like augmented reality a lot better than 3D, and hopefully these augmented reality capable glasses will become common place pretty soon. Vuzix‘s STAR stands for See-Through-Augmented-Reality and describes these glasses perfectly since they’ve got transparent displays, kind of like the head’s up display you see in some high-end cars.
These beautiful Sensai speakers include lights so that they can serve as lamps as well as wireless speakers. There are a few different variations, including a suspension lamp, floor lamp, table lamp, and wall sconce.
Most cameras that you’ve probably encountered only require the push of a button to take a photo. (And if you were born a few decades ago, then you might have come across those where the photographer hides takes the picture behind a black hood.)
What a lot of parents love to do is dress up their kids. What a lot of kids really hate is getting dressed up by their parents. I can attest to this personally, because I used to throw a fit and fuss over the frilly clothes that my mother would force me to wear.
Here’s one of the stranger computer mods I’ve seen in a long while. No, you’re not looking at the latest in teledildonics. Nope, what we’ve got here is a Windows PC made from an old lingerie mannequin.
Anyone that owns a gadget of any sort wants the thing to have the longest battery life possible. Batteries that can pack in more energy is the way many of us expect tech to evolve. You can also get batteries that charge faster making them easier to live with and if we can reduce the power the gadgets need, they will run longer with smaller batteries.
