Floppy Disk Bags Have More Storage Capacity Than You Remember

Floppy Disk Bags Have More Storage Capacity Than You Remember
Remember floppy disks? Seems like I last used one a very long time ago, and they’ve gotten quite useless since USB flash drives amped up the storage capacity. That didn’t stop Etsy store owner Roxanne Gibson of trying to find a way to reuse all of those forgotten floppy disks to create some whimsical and geeky bags.

Tokyoflash Kisai Online Watch: The Matrix is on Your Wrist
Here’s another example of a user-submitted design that’s been made into an actual watch by Tokyoflash. It takes a bit of time before you realize what you are looking for when you glance at the face of this watch, but once you have, telling the time is easy.

This Sonic Screwdriver is a Remote Control on the Inside
A remote control? Whaaaat. It doesn’t make as much sense as the Sonic Screwdriver screwdriver right? Then again, it’s not as if the tool itself makes sense. A screwdriver that opens locks and takes vital stats?

Not everyone has the luxury of going to the spa at least once a week for some much-needed pampering and sweat time at the sauna. If you’re a girl or guy who wishes you could go sweat it out at the sauna more often, then a portable and practical solution (although we give no assurances that it works) is the Sauna Suit.

Hana iPhone Case: Perfect for Nose Pickers

Hana iPhone Case: Perfect for Nose Pickers
This iPhone case is a slightly disgusting way of holding your iPhone. Naturally, it comes from Japan, and will probably get a few laughs when you go to pick up your phone.

Stormtrooper Armor Clearly Not Very Effective Against Blaster Fire

Stormtrooper Armor Clearly Not Very Effective Against Blaster Fire
Damn! Look at the size of that hole in this Stormtroopers helmet. I think that before the shot was fired, this corpsetrooper heard a rebel utter, “You’re all clear kid, let’s blow this thing and get out of here!” So he turns and goes, “Huh?,” thinking that they are talking about blowing up a piece of equipment.

Jaws Bench is Like a Mini Sequel Starring You

Jaws Bench is Like a Mini Sequel Starring You
I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t park my butt anywhere near this thing. It may be fake, but you never know when something is going to come alive through magic and kill you with its razor-sharp choppers.

Garmin GLO Improves Smartphone GPS Accuracy and Speed

Garmin GLO Improves Smartphone GPS Accuracy and Speed
I think we can be honest here; the GPS accuracy on most smartphones isn’t that great. Sure, it might be fine if you’re using the smartphone’s own GPS navigation application, but sometimes they’re not great – especially in dense urban areas.

Spike Case Adds a Physical Keyboard for Your iPhone

Spike Case Adds a Physical Keyboard for Your iPhone
The iPhone’s on-screen keyboard is forgiving enough as it is, but sometimes, my fatter-than-normal fingers make me type out messages that are garbled, wrongly-spelled, and downright confusing. I’ve never been interested in getting a separate physical keyboard for the iPhone, since I never found one that was right for what I needed in the market.
