Sphero: Get Your Hands on Some Remote-Controlled Glowing Balls

Sphero: Get Your Hands on Some Remote-Controlled Glowing Balls
Balls are very near and dear to most men’s hearts. We use them for all sorts of fun and games. We try to take care of our varied balls and keep them from harm’s way. No one wants one of their balls to go flat for instance or explode due to mishandling.

LensRentals Crams 50 UV Filters onto One REALLY Long Lens (What Would Freud Say?)
I don’t know anything about photography other than I have to remember the SD card, I need a charged battery, and if in manual mode on my DSLR just turn knobs until the light meter says I have a decent exposure.

FlashHarp USB Harmonica: Hootie and the BlowFlash

FlashHarp USB Harmonica: Hootie and the BlowFlash
I had a couple harmonicas as a kid. I liked them because all you needed to do to annoy the hell out of the parents was blow on one for like 30 seconds. I hated it because blowing on the harmonica was all I could ever do.

Foam Minecraft Axe and Sticky Notes for Pixel Pushers and Pencil Pushers

Foam Minecraft Axe and Sticky Notes for Pixel Pushers and Pencil Pushers
I have seen plenty of images and videos from the game Minecraft, with its blocky artwork and intriguing gameplay, but I have never actually played it. I bet there are plenty of you out there that are hardcore Minecraft fiends and will get a kick out of the new offerings from ThinkGeek and Minecraft developer Mojang.

Thai Sculptor Transforms Scrap Cars Into Massive Transformer Sculptures

Thai Sculptor Transforms Scrap Cars Into Massive Transformer Sculptures
What is it about Transformers that gets people so juiced up? I don’t know, but maybe it’s all of those hours watching the animated series back when we were all kids. Check out these massive Transformers sculptures that measure between 8 and 19 feet-tall. 

Getac X500 Rugged Laptop Perfect for Jack Bauer Missions

Getac X500 Rugged Laptop Perfect for Jack Bauer Missions
I’ve got no idea why I want one, but this rugged laptop from Getac does look surprisingly good. You’ve probably seen these types of laptops in movies, used by the military or if you’re a spy.

Ila Portable Door Alarm Wedge: The Security Alarm That You Can Take Anywhere

Ila Portable Door Alarm Wedge: The Security Alarm That You Can Take Anywhere
I was raised by pretty conservative parents, and sometimes, I think that their paranoia has rubbed off on me. For example, whenever I go out of town and stay the night in some hotel, I always go to great pains to ensure that all the double locks are in place and that all the windows are locked.

Red Bull Creation Asks Makers to Make, Well, Something Cool

Red Bull Creation Asks Makers to Make, Well, Something Cool
I usually associate the Red Bull name with large amounts of caffeine, and maybe the occasional cool extreme sports event, but this is the first time the Red Bull name is connected with the DIY/Maker movement – other than the mass-quantities of the sugary concoction geeks down on a regular basis, and the ridiculous “flying” machines which find their way to the Red Bull Flugtag.

SEGA ToyLets Video Game: SEGA Makes its Own Wii
Guys, admit it. At some point in your life, you’ve tried to carefully aim or control your stream when you’re taking a leak. There are even those little target urinal cakes in some bathrooms to encourage accurate aim.

Artist Builds a Room Out of PC Parts

Artist Builds a Room Out of PC Parts
I have about six different computers around here along with a hoard of old hardware that is just crammed into boxes. Artist Marek Tomasik has taken three years of his old computer parts and used them to make a room that is creepy, cool, and reminds me of the Borg all at once.

The Stained Glass AK-47

The Stained Glass AK-47
The AK-47 has been around for a long time and is one of the most widely used weapons in the world when it comes to fighting wars. This unusual version of the AK-47 was posted on DeviantArt by artist shanti1971 and is called The End of the Revolution.

TriOviz 3D Glasses Let You Play 3D Games on 2D Displays

TriOviz 3D Glasses Let You Play 3D Games on 2D Displays
I think that once there is more content on TV in 3D and the tech in 3D TVs and glasses gets cheaper we will see a bunch of folks moving to 3D sets. I think the tipping point will be when all sets are offered with passive glasses and sets needing no glasses start trickling out.

Pool Playing Robot: Future Robo-Hustler

Pool Playing Robot: Future Robo-Hustler
If they ever remake that old Tom Cruise flick The Color of Money where he was a pool shark, but in the distant future after the robots take over, this ‘bot is the one that should play Cruise’s character.

Chinese Dude Builds Awesome Iron Man Mark I Suit

Chinese Dude Builds Awesome Iron Man Mark I Suit
This Iron Man Mark I suit was built by a Chinese guy named Wang Xiao Kang, and he built it from scratch. That’s saying a lot because this suit looks pretty darn great. Wang says that he had no prior DIY experience, but from the look of his suit, it’s pretty much on the mark when it comes to faithfulness.

Atom Watch: Basic Unit of Matter Makes for Complicated Watch

Atom Watch: Basic Unit of Matter Makes for Complicated Watch
A challenger appears in the competition for the title of World’s Most Unreadable Timepiece, a competition that no one in particular asked for nor wanted. When I first saw the Atom Watch I was so sure that this was from those crazy designers at Tokyoflash.

Wood Retro TV iPad Dock: for Watching Black & White Films

Wood Retro TV iPad Dock: for Watching Black & White Films
We’ve seen a variety of stands, cases and docks that convert the iPad – or at least make it look like – something else. There’s one that makes it look like a podium, a Mac Classic, an iBook, an arcade cabinet or an iMac.
