AT-AT Cat Condo Begs to Be Taken Down by a Ball of String
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.

Darth Vader Table Lamp: The Light Side of the Dark Side

Darth Vader Table Lamp: The Light Side of the Dark Side
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.

Zombies Hate Mannequins, Flossing and the Chevy Cruze
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.

IKEA Digital Camera is Made of Cardboard, No Assembly Required
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.

Brydge iPad Keyboard: Admit It Apple, This is a Good Idea

Brydge iPad Keyboard: Admit It Apple, This is a Good Idea
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.)

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.

iPavement Puts Wi-Fi Hotspots in the Road

iPavement Puts Wi-Fi Hotspots in the Road
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.
