Show your allegiance to your favorite game console with these PS3 and XBox 360 rings. They will deck your digits in tiny replica controllers, upping your geek gaming cred and proclaiming your side in the console wars.
Apparently the military industrial complex has never heard of the Twinkie, so they have been looking into ways to make a soldiers food last forever. And now they have perfected a sandwich that lasts for two years.
These folding shoes are pretty clever. Perfect for those who like to go barefoot, but not all of the time. Or for anyone who carries spare shoes with them. And think of the space that you’ll save in your suitcase or backpack when you travel with these.
The world has way more iPhone docks than it knows to do with, but there are always some that manage to set themselves apart from the rest, even if you don’t actually need another one. This particular one tries to merge the design elements of a classic alarm clock with that of a dock.
