I’m not sure how many cats are Star Wars fans, but if your cat loves the movies, I bet he/she wishes that this was in their living room. Just look at that thing. It was made for cats to play in, but I want to play in it too.
35 Years after the release of the original Star Wars, Darth Vader is still one of the most feared (and revered) villains in the history of moviemaking. So it only makes sense that his imposing figure would continue to make its way into our lives through merchandising and various other accouterments.
Mount Everest has been climbed many times over the years. Some of the adventures who set off to climb to the summit of the deadly mountain make it to the top, others come back down the mountain early, and sadly, some never leave the mountain.
I’ve never been forced to run from a zombie horde before, but I’ve long suspected that there are two places where you will find yourself in dire circumstances eventually. The first is getting fuel for your car and second is trying to find a place to go to the bathroom.
We love Space Invaders around these parts, and if you do too, but are looking for something a bit different, then check out French premium knitwear brand Monsieur Lacenaire’s latest offering. “Sheep Invaders” is part of their Spring/Summer 2012 knitwear collection.
A few years ago we featured PhotoSketch (now called Sketch2Photo), a program that can turn sketches with labels into a picture. Here’s something nearly opposite of that: a camera that outputs a text description of the image instead of the image itself.
If you’ve got an iPad 2 or 3rd Gen iPad, You’ve probably used a Smart Cover and noticed that there is a bit of wasted space when the Smart Cover is all folded up as a triangle to act as a support for your iPad.
I’ve seen pinhole cardboard cameras before, but this is the first time that I’ve seen something like this made by a furniture giant. It was a promotional item, but it makes me think that IKEA might be working on a product like this.
It seems like every week, a new keyboard case for the iPad is released. I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple itself releases its own version, but if they don’t, the Brydge just might be the keyboard case that will win over devoted Apple fans: it looks good, it’s made of aluminum (and it’s expensive.)
I know some guys who talk about their guitars or cars as if these objects were their girlfriends: they’re highly protective towards it, they do what they can to take care of it, and they love it to pieces.
NASA has announced a plan to find earthquakes and respond more quickly to them using GPS satellites in orbit. Generally, earthquake detection is done by seismological hardware on the ground, but according NASA – that data can be difficult to capture.
You don’t need huge weapons to make impressive explosions. Take this Pocket Artillery mini cannon for example. It’s tiny and armed only with a BB, but when it shoots a bottle of Corona, the results are impressive.
Over the years, I have seen a number of interesting ways to have a city wired with Internet access. Some have tried basic mobile broadband service offered by wireless carriers. Other cities have wired their utility poles with Wi-Fi hotspots, and I’ve even heard of some places in Europe running wires through sewage systems.
