IKEA Brings X-Ray Vision to its Catalogs

IKEA Brings X-Ray Vision to its Catalogs
This isn’t the first time a company has tried incorporating technology into catalogs. Remember how Moosejaw released an app with their catalog that let shoppers (and the occasional pervert) see through the models’ clothing. Now IKEA is doing the same thing, minus the sexy models, replaced with lots of hard-to-assemble home furnishings.

Marshall Minor Pitch Black Earphones: These Buds Stay in!

Marshall Minor Pitch Black Earphones: These Buds Stay in!
There’s nothing more annoying that going for a run or on errands and constantly having to pop  your earphones back into your ears because they fall out. It just gets ridiculous sometimes. Luckily, there are plenty of companies working hard so that this won’t happen to you ever again.

TARDIS Tent Looks Perfect for Stand-up Sleepers

TARDIS Tent Looks Perfect for Stand-up Sleepers
While I love the idea of all the space inside of an actual TARDIS tent, this one exists only in the real world, providing a space measuring just 61″(H) x 35″ (W) x 35″ (D). Clearly, this is not a tent for lying down in, but it’s just right for pretend time and space travelers – as long as they’re under 5-feet-tall.

GoPro Camera Survives 12,500-Foot Fall!

GoPro Camera Survives 12,500-Foot Fall!
I’ve heard of cameras being rugged, but surviving a 12,500-foot drop is quite impressive. A skydiver apparently lost his GoPro camera on the way down and it managed to survive the fall, in fact, well enough to record its owner’s landing a few minutes later.

Fitbit One Uses Technology to Help You Get Fit and Sleep Better
I think we can all agree that technology is a great thing. The right application of technology can make just about anything you want to do easier and more effective. If you’re a gadget fiend looking to get into shape, Fitbit has a new device up for pre-order called the One.

Star Trek Bat’leth Letter Opener Will Destroy Junk Mail
If you’re a fan of Star Trek, you’ll undoubtedly recognize this Klingon weapon. The weapon is called a Bat’leth and is a two-handed bladed weapon the Klingon’s use to cleave enemies in twain. This miniaturized version is sharp and designed to rip your mail open.

Pokémon Generation 1 Clay Figurines: Pennymon

Pokémon Generation 1 Clay Figurines: Pennymon
Last month we saw a cross-stitch featuring all 151 of the original Pokémon. Redditor ninjazzy spent over 250 hours making something more tangible: tiny clay figurines of each Generation 1 monster. You can probably fit four of these in one Pokéball.

Samsung has been very successful with its new smartphone the Galaxy S III and it has sold tons of the device. If you happen to be the owner of one of these smartphones looking for a case to protect it and need some extra battery life, you might want to check out this case.

Why Young Kids Shouldn’t Play Online Shooters

Why Young Kids Shouldn’t Play Online Shooters
Little kids are easily influenced by what they see and hear. I hear that professionals recommend that parents keep their babies away from TVs until they’re two years old, but many parents don’t really do that anymore nowadays. 

Tank Chair is an All-Terrain Wheelchair that Will Take You Anywhere and Back

Tank Chair is an All-Terrain Wheelchair that Will Take You Anywhere and Back
Most wheelchairs are just meant for indoor or sidewalk use. Because of that, many people with disabilities miss out on doing stuff they might want to do outdoors. But not anymore. Not with the Tank Chair.

Giant Fist Koozie is Every Beer Drinker’s Dream Koozie

Giant Fist Koozie is Every Beer Drinker’s Dream Koozie
You gotta love those koozies that keep your beer (or whatever your beverage of choice is) insulated while you eat, watch TV, or do whatever it is you do while you gulp down your drink. If you’re feeling especially macho, then you need a koozie that reflects just that.

Hyper-Matrix Cube Wall Turns Styrofoam Cubes into Moving Pictures

Hyper-Matrix Cube Wall Turns Styrofoam Cubes into Moving Pictures
I’ve seen some impressive projection screens in the past, but I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve seen a screen that’s made up of thousands of moving styrofoam cubes.

Floppy Disk Lampshade: What Drunk Geeks Wear on Their Heads

Floppy Disk Lampshade: What Drunk Geeks Wear on Their Heads
Have a bunch of old 3.5″ floppy disks lying around? If you still have some left over after converting them into paintings or handbags, you might want to redecorate your room with a floppy disk lampshade.

Popeye Knew Best: Spinach Could Make Solar Panels More Effective

Popeye Knew Best: Spinach Could Make Solar Panels More Effective
Whenever Popeye was in trouble, he’d always reach for his can of spinach that would give him the strength to punch Bluto’s lights out. While spinach won’t really transform a normal human being into a massive hulk, it actually achieves an effect similar to that on Popeye when it comes to solar panels.

Plaques Placed on Space Shuttle Runway Give Details of Shuttle History

Plaques Placed on Space Shuttle Runway Give Details of Shuttle History
Every time I think about the retiring of the Space Shuttle fleet, it bums me out. I’ve been following the Shuttle since grade school when the Challenger disaster was all we could think about. It’s sad to think that for the foreseeable future, United States astronauts will have to catch a ride with foreign governments to be able to make it into space.

STM Grip iPad Case: Colorful Kickstands for Adults & Kids

STM Grip iPad Case: Colorful Kickstands for Adults & Kids
iPad cases comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, but there are only a few that work well if you have rambunctious kids wanting to play with them. While I’m all for having specifically kid-like cases for iPads, when you take it out of your home to work, it does look a bit strange (imagine taking the iGuy to the office!).
