Tell The Time, Learn Trigonometry, Get a Headache With This Wall Clock

Tell The Time, Learn Trigonometry, Get a Headache With This Wall Clock
We’ve seen a lot of functional, quirky wall clocks lately around the block. There was the minimalistic Icon Clock for people who wanted their timepieces to be neat and simple, the quirky Vinyl Numbers Clock for music lovers, and the Eclipsion Wall Clock for people who wanted to give themselves a hard time (pun intended) while trying to read the time off of it.

The Pocket Pillow Lets You Sleep Anytime, Anywhere Like an Ostrich
You’ve probably already heard about that little bit of trivia about how ostriches immediately go to sleep if you place a paper bag over their heads, right? That’s because these long-legged flightless birds think that it’s nighttime once the light goes out.

Fling Mini iPhone & iPod Joysticks: Stick-on Joy for Analog Fans
Ten One Design has now released the inevitable follow-up to the Fling stick-on joystick for the iPad, the Fling Mini for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’s almost exactly the same as its big brother, which means it has both the pros and cons of the original Fling.

May the Triforce Be with You T-shirt Links Zelda to Star Wars
A long time ago – the late 80s – in a land far, far away – Hyrule – there began an interactive tale about power, wisdom and courage, embodied by an artifact called the Triforce. It was split into many fragments that the hero had to collect to save the land and the princess.

Cardnetics Brings You Business Cards with a Twist

Cardnetics Brings You Business Cards with a Twist
Analog cellular phones became WiFi-capable smartphones. Vinyl records became MP3 files. The abacus became a calculator, which later on evolved into the scientific calculator. But amidst all these changes, one thing that stayed the same was the business card.

Dolphin Soldiers: Right Out of Cyberpunk

Dolphin Soldiers: Right Out of Cyberpunk
For a moment, I thought this was a joke because I clearly remember dolphin soldiers from a few science-fiction settings (Johnny Mnemonic, Ghost in the Shell, etc), like Cyberpunk, but it looks like that there actually are dolphin soldiers.

Chinese Student Sells Kidney to Buy iPad 2

Chinese Student Sells Kidney to Buy iPad 2
This has to be the most extreme case of Apple fanboyitis in history. A 17-year old student from the Anhui province of China has sold one of his kidneys to get the money to buy an iPad 2.

Apple Store 10th Anniversary Poster Loaded with Random Trivia
I’ve only been in one Apple Store; they aren’t that prolific in my area. The one in Austin, Texas isn’t fancy and I don’t really recall much about it other than it has a lot of MacBooks and geeks running around.

Zigstand: Convertible Smartphone Stand Made Out of Foam

Zigstand: Convertible Smartphone Stand Made Out of Foam
After a long hard day at work, you recline in your office seat, prop your feet up on the table (if the boss is out of the office, that is), take your smartfoam smartphone out of its hoodie, and prop it on the Zigstand.

So This Is How Cobb Spun His Top in Inception
If you’ve seen the movie Inception, then you probably already know about his spinning top. If you haven’t, then I’m not about to go spoil the movie for you. However, I am going to talk about that top he keeps on spinning.

Android Mascot Easter Egg Found in Samsung Galaxy S II ROM
It’s not uncommon at all to find all sorts of hidden content inside software and other devices today. These are called Easter eggs and the latest strange Easter egg to surface comes from the ROM of a guy’s Samsung Galaxy S II.

Wacko Arrested with PS2 in His Pants

Wacko Arrested with PS2 in His Pants
This is a very bizarre story. Apparently, a man named Timothy Jones Sr. from Lincoln, Mo was walking in traffic. I would hazard a guess that he was on something that affected his cognitive abilities at the time.

iShuttr Wants to Make Your iPhone into a Real Digital Camera

iShuttr Wants to Make Your iPhone into a Real Digital Camera
I would bet anyone that has an iPhone has tried at one point or another to shoot photos with the built-in camera. The iPhone 4 has a flash built-in, but that flash is not very powerful meaning you end up with dark photos if the subject is too far away.

The 10,000-Piece LEGO Sandcrawler

The 10,000-Piece LEGO Sandcrawler
While some people were never impressed with the Jawa’s Sandcrawler from the Star Wars saga, I’ve always thought that it was pretty cool since Jawas themselves are quite small, but their transport is humongous. As a tribute to Jawa ingenuity, LEGO whiz Marshal Banana created this incredible build.
