Bright Blinds: Fakes a Window Where There’s None

Bright Blinds: Fakes a Window Where There’s None
The first apartment I ever had was a bit rundown and ran on the tiny side, but it was still the first place that I had all to myself, so I didn’t really care. But one thing that bugged me, though, was that I got one of those middle spaces and was stuck with a bedroom with no windows.

Easy Read Thermometer: Just Slap It On and Read the Temperature Off

Easy Read Thermometer: Just Slap It On and Read the Temperature Off
My sister’s youngest daughter got sick over the weekend while she was sleeping over at my place, and let me just say, it was as close to hell heck as I’ve ever been. (I’ve been choosing my words carefully while she was under my care, under strict instructions by my sister.)

Memo Eyes: Sticky Notes for Your Eyeballs
Take a look at the pair of glasses below. They look like your ordinary pair of contemporary sunglasses, no? Well take a closer look. Wait a second, those aren’t lenses at all. They’re sticky notes.

Retro Warfare: Man vs. Pixels

Retro Warfare: Man vs. Pixels
While you might think the best way to take down alien invaders in an arcade game would be to use a joystick, or maybe a trackball or spinner, it turns out that you can also use a good, old-fashioned handgun.

Darth Vader in His Underwear with His Evil Superhero Grandpa, Say What?

Darth Vader in His Underwear with His Evil Superhero Grandpa, Say What?
This series of photos were shot by Sacha Goldberger, and they are entitled The Darks Part II. In it, a (anti-)superhero named Dark Papouka befriends Darth Vader and they have some fun together. Darth Vader tries to get into the superhero act by wearing his underwear on the outside of his outfit.

Karuma PlayBase: Tablet for Toddlers?

Karuma PlayBase: Tablet for Toddlers?
While I’ve seen plenty of toddlers playing with iPhones and iPads, since they aren’t completely smash-proof, you might want to think about giving your little terror a PlayBase from Karuma instead. This is supposed to be an affordable tablet that’s made for younger children.

Sony Shows Off 720p HD OLED Microdisplay
If you have ever owned a Sony NEX interchangeable lens camera or select Sony DSLR cameras, you have looked into the viewfinder and been staring at a tiny display rather than seeing what the lens actually sees.

HTC Rezound Hits Verizon This Month, Looks Good

HTC Rezound Hits Verizon This Month, Looks Good
HTC has launched a new smartphone that will be a Verizon exclusive at least for a while called the Rezound. For some reason the name reminds me of Scooby Doo trying to say resound. The smartphone runs Android 2.3

Chopping Board? iPhone Charging Stand? You Be The Judge

Chopping Board? iPhone Charging Stand? You Be The Judge
I’m always on the lookout for new and quirky stuff for my iPhone. Granted, it’s not the iPhone 4S with Siri, but I still love it all the same, although I wouldn’t mind receiving an upgrade this Christmas (hint hint to any generous family members or friends of mine.)

Concrete iPhone Dock for Hard Rock Playlists Only

Concrete iPhone Dock for Hard Rock Playlists Only
We were just talking about some speakers made out of stone, so it’s just a coincidence that this iPhone/iPod dock made out of concrete popped up on my radar screen on the same day. But unlike those limestone speakers, this sturdy dock is made from cast concrete.

Nintendo Patent App Reveals Wii Remote Touchpad

Nintendo Patent App Reveals Wii Remote Touchpad
A Nintendo patent app has surfaced that shows a simple and ingenious way to turn the Wii remote into a touchpad like a notebook computer has. The device appears to be a two-part thing with one section that plugs into the bottom like the Wii Motion Plus did before it was integrated with the controllers.

Apple Store Fifth Avenue Glass Cube Gets an Upgrade
If you are a major Apple geek that lives in NYC, you will want to trek down to Fifth Avenue and check out the updates to the flagship Apple Store that are now complete. Back in late August, we saw some renderings that were floating around of a new glass cube entrance.

LEGO Angry Birds: Angry Bricks?

LEGO Angry Birds: Angry Bricks?
Everything goes better with LEGO, don’t you think? For instance, LEGOs and Angry Birds. This awesome LEGO Angry Birds diorama was created by Tony Sava for a LEGO LUG Showcase display, and it perfectly captures the pudgy round birds and pigs from the insanely popular game.

Thanko USB Eye Warmer Will Soothe Your Tired Eyes

Thanko USB Eye Warmer Will Soothe Your Tired Eyes
If you have been sitting in front of the computer all day long, your eyes could use a rest. They get all tired and dry, maybe even cold. You could always use an ice pack or a hot towel, but those are messy.

Audiomasons Design Works Limestone Rock Speakers Will Outlast You

Audiomasons Design Works Limestone Rock Speakers Will Outlast You
Audiophiles will go to extraordinary lengths to reduce cabinet resonance, but it’s pretty strange to think about a speaker housing that made out of a hunk of rock. This was the idea that Audiomasons Design Works had for their new speakers.

Retro Flip Watch Puts the 1970s on Your Wrist
If you grew up in the 1970s, you probably remember one of the most popular types of bedside alarm clocks had those little mechanical numbers which flipped over when the minutes changed.
