EBay Now Gets Your Products to You the Same Day
I think I’m like most people out there in that I like shopping online, but I hate waiting for stuff to show up. Shipping takes too long and more often than not, many places don’t ship the same day you place the order, and express shipping can really add up.

Extra-Wide N64 Controller Mod Has Double the Sticks, Double the Size
Nowadays we expect dual analog sticks to be standard parts of gaming controllers, but back in the 90s a certain newcomer was the smart/lucky enough to figure that out. Bacteria forum member Clarky retroactively sets things straight for Nintendo by making a dual analog stick N64 controller.

LaCie RuggedKey Flash Drive Looks Like an Orange Hand Grenade
I’m not sure how the TSA will deal with the grenade-like looks of this USB flash drive, but it definitely looks interesting. While I prefer something more minimal, the fact of the matter is that some USB flash drives get lost so quickly that it makes sense to make them more visible.

Shenmue Hoodie is Perfect for Exacting Revenge, Driving Forklifts
Shenmue is one of the cult classics from the Sega Dreamcast. Before Claude and the 3D streets of Liberty City, there was Ryo Hazaki and Yokosuka. Pay homage to the perpetually sidetracked protagonist with this officially licensed hoodie, made to look like Hazuki’s bomber jacket.

‘This is Now’ Lets You See Moments as They Unfold – on Instagram
Life moves in mysterious ways. (And yes, you caught me, I totally stole that line from a song.) One moment you might feel like you’re on top of the world, then something happens to bring you down to your very lowest.

GO Recycle Makes it Easy to Throw Your Garbage in the Right Bin
If people still can’t get it right after you’ve color coded and labeled your trash cans to death, then what’s a designer supposed to do? Come up with an even better trash can in the form of GO Recycle.

Ultimate Bat Cave: Dark Knight Rises Movie Theater
If you have a Bruce Wayne sized bank account, you may want to turn your man cave into a bat cave like this Dark Knight home theater. You see that bookcase on the left? It slides out to reveal a Tumbler behind it.

Sega Genesis Shock Collar Mod: Failure is Not an Option

Sega Genesis Shock Collar Mod: Failure is Not an Option
Sony has DualShock controllers, but Sega has literally shocking controllers. Not by default of course. A modder has made a couple of Sega Genesis gamepads that actually electrocute players via a shock collar. Now that’s hardcore.

Partly Cloudy iPhone App: The Infographic Weather Companion

Partly Cloudy iPhone App: The Infographic Weather Companion
Whenever I check the weather on my phone, I open up a couple of different apps, I always find it funny that none of them give exactly the same information. That being said, I don’t currently use an app like Partly Cloudy, which definitely looks like an interesting way to check the weather forecast.

3D-Printed Exoskeleton: Toddler’s Magic Arms
We saw the dark side of 3D printing with the 3D printed semi-automatic rifle. Here’s a counter-example of the technology’s vast potential: a lightweight assistive device that might not have been made if not for 3d printing.

Freedom Sleeve Turns iPod Touch into a 4G iPhone

Freedom Sleeve Turns iPod Touch into a 4G iPhone
Having compared an iPhone 4S and an iPod Touch next to each other, I can confirm that I’d rather carry around an iPod Touch since it’s very thin compared to the iPhone. That sentiment will make even more sense once you pop FreedomPop’s Freedom Sleeve case onto your iPod Touch.

One of the biggest companies that makes controllers for solid-state storage devices is SandForce and the company has announced a new family of controllers called the SF-2200/2100 Client Flash Storage Processors.

Arc Mouse Lets You Aim Away on Curved Surfaces

Arc Mouse Lets You Aim Away on Curved Surfaces
I have nothing against touchpads on laptops, but they aren’t exactly the easiest things to use, especially when you’re editing or cropping images. Now portable mice do fine, but they’re not the most convenient things to use if you’re left to work without a surface.
