Jelly Belly Phone Cases Make Apples Smell Like Cherries and Blackberries Smell Like Blueberries

Jelly Belly Phone Cases Make Apples Smell Like Cherries and Blackberries Smell Like Blueberries
If there’s one thing that the world constantly needs, it’s good cases for your smartphones and devices. I’m partial to silicone cases, while my sister goes for the leather ones. My dad likes hard shell cases while my other sister carries around her gadgets in the nude (and her phone and iPod are obviously the most banged up ones in our family.)

How Huge Is That Folder You’re Trying to Drag? The DataBot Mouse Will Let You Know

Acorn A7000+ Gets Portable

Japanese Maglev Train to Run at 313 MPH!

Japanese Maglev Train to Run at 313 MPH!
The crazy cats in Japan have all sorts of cool gear that we will never see in the US. One of the coolest technological accomplishments in my book is the high-speed bullet trains that can cruise at up to 150 MPH today.

10,000 Year Clock Will Tell Time Til Your Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandkids are a Distant Memory

10,000 Year Clock Will Tell Time Til Your Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandkids are a Distant Memory
This has to be one of the strangest and coolest projects I have ever heard of. Way out in the desert wilds of West Texas, workers are starting the process of digging out the side of a mountain in the Sierra Diablo mountain range to install a clock that will keep time for the next 10,000 years.

DirecTV Tries to Make Hotels Less Disgusting and Germ Infested with Anti-Microbial Remotes

DirecTV Tries to Make Hotels Less Disgusting and Germ Infested with Anti-Microbial Remotes
I am not a fan of staying in hotels at all. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable, and the thought of sleeping in a bed that some perverts could have had an orgy in the night before is not appealing in the least.

Treadmill Computer Plays Portal 2 Theme Song: For Health and Science
GLaDOS is that you? YouTube member evi1wombat made waves on the Internet a few years ago when he hacked a busted treadmill computer that had been discarded at the back of his school’s gym and made it play Still Alive, the soundtrack to the first Portal game.

Nokia N9 Smartphone: iPhone Killer, or Just Killer Looks?

Nokia N9 Smartphone: iPhone Killer, or Just Killer Looks?
Nokia just introduced their new N9 in Singapore and frankly, it looks gorgeous. It’s got a glass display that features no buttons on the face at all. You’ll find a few on the side though, but the device sets itself apart thanks to its bright 3.9-inch,

Isle of Tune: SimCity Sequencer

Isle of Tune: SimCity Sequencer
Digital audio workstations like Reason, Ableton Live and Apple’s GarageBand have made it relatively easy and cheap to make music. But even though these programs enable users to create tunes literally at the push of a button, their interface can be quite intimidating.

Samsung’s Solar-Powered Netbook NC215S: Kind of Like Superman?

Samsung’s Solar-Powered Netbook NC215S: Kind of Like Superman?
Just like Superman, Samsung’s new NC215S is powered by the Sun. Will it make it the ultimate go to laptop for people on the road? It makes perfect sense to integrate a solar panel into the lid of a laptop, because you can charge it quite easily when you’re not using it.

The Future Of Cufflinks Looks Bright, Literally.

The Future Of Cufflinks Looks Bright, Literally.
The design of the cufflinks that a man dons tells a lot about his personality. For example, the Bike Cufflinks are obviously intended for bikers and cyclists. The Flash Drive cufflinks are for the nerdier and geekier men who aren’t ashamed to where their geekiness on their sleeves.

Dude, Want To Surf On a Board of Beer Cans?

Dude, Want To Surf On a Board of Beer Cans?
Surfing is one of those things that I have never really gotten a firm handle on. Sure, I can stand on the board for a few seconds minutes before I slip or wipe out. I used to sit by the shore and just watch the other surfers ride the waves and do their thing in the water.

Sputnik 0667 PC Casemod Goes Retro All the Way

Sputnik 0667 PC Casemod Goes Retro All the Way
You know me. I’m a sucker for computer casemods. Despite the fact that the Sputnik 0667 looks like some sort of Russian television from the 1950s or 1960s, it actually is a fully-functional Windows PC.

Gigantically Awesome Hot Wheels Metropolis II City is a Kinetic Sculpture

Gigantically Awesome Hot Wheels Metropolis II City is a Kinetic Sculpture
It has to be good to be an artist. If you have a penchant for things like LEGO or Hot Wheels cars you can just come up with some wild DIY project idea and start building and no one thinks you are weird for playing with kid’s toys, it’s art after all.
