Needle-Felted Shiranui: Okami Overload

Lomography Diana Baby 110: This Lomo Fits in the Palm of Your Hand
What’s there not to love about Lomography and their various low-fi cameras. Sure, your smartphone probably has nicer resolution, but the analog flavor of these little cameras is hard to beat, even with Instagram’s retro effect filters.

ABC S.H.I.E.L.D Series Pilot Being Co-written by Joss Whedon

Dropbox Turns on 2-Step Verification for All Accounts: You Should Too
Losing the totality of your digital life can be a mind-boggling experience, which is one of the reasons that I immediately turned on 2-step verification when Google made it available for Google/Gmail accounts.

Batwing R/C Plane: The Dark Flight Rises
R/C toys are fun. Whether it’s driving, flying or navigating the the waterways, it’s all good. It’s even cooler if you are capable of customizing your R/C craft. R/C hobbyist Chris Allen knows a thing or two about that, having built this awesome 70MM EDF JET powered Batwing from scratch.

Nikon COOLPIX S01: The Teeny Tiny Camera
Marketing a new digital camera can be problematic these days, since most people are happy to snap photos with their smartphones. It’s only when you take a lot of photos that you realize that the camera sensor on your phone might not be good enough for every situation.

Foldable Mouse Concept Fits in Optical Drive When Flat: Discformer

Foldable Mouse Concept Fits in Optical Drive When Flat: Discformer
I think my mouse is portable enough that I’d have no trouble carrying it with me wherever I go. But the farthest I’ve traveled is to our gate. I barely made it back. Anyway designer Taewon Hwang thinks mice could be smaller and thinner.

Garmin Forerunner 10: A Thinner, Lighter, Cheaper GPS Watch
GPS watches are great to track your runs, but most of them are kind of bulky. This new lightweight series from Garmin isn’t aimed at triathletes. It’s made to compete with some of the watches from Nike and Polar, which make it dead simple to track your runs.

LEGO Go-Kart is Not for Minifigs

LEGO Go-Kart is Not for Minifigs
We’ve seen a few vehicles made out of LEGO before, but those were either tiny, non-functioning or had non-LEGO parts. Which is why Eric Steenstra’s go-kart trumps them all. It’s life-sized, it runs, it can carry a driver and most of all it’s made from nothing but LEGO products.
