Simply Spray Fabric Paints For (Almost) Every Purpose Imaginable

Pacmania Bowl Needs to Be a Thing

Pacmania Bowl Needs to Be a Thing
Being an avid fan of the classic arcade game Pac-Man, it’s hard for me to resist much of anything with a solid Pac-theme to it. So combine Pac-Man with junk food, and I’m happier than a yellow puck in a roomful of blue ghosts and unlimited power pills.

Glassboard: the Anti-Facebook

Glassboard: the Anti-Facebook
Glassboard is a new mobile social network app made by Sepia Labs, and was built with control and privacy in mind. Glassboard has simple and sensible rules: only the person who created the “board” – think yahoogroups or Circles in Google+ – can invite or remove members as well as delete the whole board.

We spend a lot of money on our gadgets, so we want to protect them. I can’t think of any better cases/covers than these Super Mario themed covers. They look awesome.

As tablets go, the Mercury has solid specs, but is still more expensive that the discount-priced $99 TouchPad (if you can still find one).

Tube Squeezing Toothbrush Helps You Get Every Last Bit of Toothpaste Out
You might recall that new tube design called SavePaste that some smart folks came up with to help get every bit of toothpaste out of the tube. The last dollops of paste left inside the tube might not amount to a whole lot of dollars’ worth, but the point is recycling and not letting things unnecessarily go to waste.

R2-D2 Bike Helmet Protects Your Motivator Unit

R2-D2 Bike Helmet Protects Your Motivator Unit
Between C-3PO and R2-D2, there’s no question which droid was the most durable. That’s why I think it’s a good idea that the girl who made this made the right choice to protect her noggin with an R2-D2 helmet, and not one made to look like that other golden droid who all too often found himself chopped to pieces.
