Gerber Multitool Gets Camera Tripod Feature

Gerber Multitool Gets Camera Tripod Feature
I have had a bunch of different multitools over the years. I tend to lose them before long and need to replace them. I think the multitool is perfect for the geek toolbox and is a good thing to take with you when you are out hiking or hunting too.

Aussie Waterfalls Flow Upwards!

Aussie Waterfalls Flow Upwards!
This is just insane. The waterfalls along the coast of Southern Australia are actually flowing upwards due to extremely high wind speeds. The large waterfalls as you will see in the video below are still flowing down.

R2-D2 Gets Decapitated, Turned into Flash Drive

R2-D2 Gets Decapitated, Turned into Flash Drive
Star Wars fans with weak stomachs, look away! R2-D2 has lost his head! We’re all so used to seeing C-3PO chopped up into pieces, but the little blue and white trash-can droid has usually been the resilient one.

Custom Munny Figure Has Working NES Built-in

Custom Munny Figure Has Working NES Built-in
This has got to be one of the coolest customizations of a Kidrobot Munny figure ever. Not only does this thing have an awesome steampunk look about it, it’s actually a functional Nintendo 8-bit console too.

Chess Set Made from Camera Lenses: Canon f/2.8 to Nikon f/4, Check!
I have never been a fan of chess. I played it online a few times and used to play on occasion with one of my uncles, but I always lost interest well before the game was finished.

2011 Mac Mini Gets Innards Fondled
I know I am not the only one that has ever looked at a new gadget like the Mac Mini that was updated this week and wondered what it was like on the inside. Thankfully, we don’t have to void our own warranties on the new and cool gear on the market thanks to iFixit.

Blogger Geek Already Camping Out for iPhone 5 to Land Free Swag

Blogger Geek Already Camping Out for iPhone 5 to Land Free Swag
Everyone I know thinks that since I write about technology and review a lot of stuff, that I have a boatload of gadgets sitting around that I was given for free. That isn’t true, as almost everything a geek reviewer might want to keep actually has to go back and the stuff that you end up with tends to be the piles of cheap little crap not worth the cost of mailing back for the maker.

Gold-plated Atari 2600 Surprisingly Not Owned by Donald Trump

Gold-plated Atari 2600 Surprisingly Not Owned by Donald Trump
Released in 1977, the Atari 2600 aka VCS (Video Computer System) is a pioneering piece of technology. Although it was not the first to have game code separate from the console (as opposed to a piece of hardware that was stuck with pre-installed games) it was the one that popularized that setup, which as we all know is still in use today.

The Only Way You Can Top an OS Named ‘Lion’

The Only Way You Can Top an OS Named ‘Lion’
In keeping with their cat themed-names, the latest major update to Apple’s OS X is named Lion, which as we all know is the king of the jungle. So where do you go from there? You go here:

Your Friendly Neighborhood Save the Date

Your Friendly Neighborhood Save the Date
Redditor jwc1138 came up with an astonishing save the date for his wedding, using his spectacular drawing skills to integrate his and his fiancé’s face into the cover of a Spider-Man comic. Short of wearing a Spidey costume to the wedding, I think it’s the ultimate display of geekiness from an amazing comic book fan. The art is based on the cover of the Amazing Spider-man #131, drawn by Gil Kane and inked by Frank Giacola.

There’s a limited edition Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 coming up, that features some cool droid-inspired designs. Both Microsoft and LucasArts unveiled this console bundle for the upcoming Kinect Star Wars game yesterday at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Spend Millions for New Toilets

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Spend Millions for New Toilets
It might sound a bit weird at first, maybe even eccentric, but once you discover the reason why, then it will all make sense. I’m talking about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s recent call to have the toilet reinvented.

Eco-Friendly Sprout Watches Are Bright, Colorful, and Biodegradable

Eco-Friendly Sprout Watches Are Bright, Colorful, and Biodegradable
I consider it extremely wasteful when parents allow their kids to just discard their old stuff even though they’re still working or in good condition, just because they’ve gotten tired of it or bored with its look.

LEGO Pioneer DJ Music Player: Block Blockin’ Beats

LEGO Pioneer DJ Music Player: Block Blockin’ Beats
Pioneer Electronics has been in the business of making audio gear for decades now. When I was a kid my dad had a Pioneer stereo in the house. These days Pioneer makes all sorts of car audio gear like the cool AppRadio we saw a while back, and also makes all sort of DJ gear for the pro and amateur DJ.

Infinity Invaderz Watch Lands on Your Wrist

Infinity Invaderz Watch Lands on Your Wrist
While my personal favorite Space Invaders wristwatch has to be this one by Romain Jerome, I don’t have $10,000+ to spare, so it won’t be making its way to my wrist any time soon. Thankfully, the guys at ThinkGeek have us mere mortals covered, with the decidedly more down-to-earth Infinity Invaderz watch.

Robot Jet Ski Patrols Harbors Looking for Baddies
