Hi-Call Bluetooth Glove: Talk to the Hand

Hi-Call Bluetooth Glove: Talk to the Hand
Do you remember the Bluetooth glove hack that we saw last year? Wasn’t that cute? A silly hack made by a person with silly hair. But no one’s actually going to pay for that right? A company called Hi-Fun begs to disagree.

Handmade Doctor Who Chess Set: Weeping Angel Jumps TARDIS

Handmade Doctor Who Chess Set: Weeping Angel Jumps TARDIS
I love Doctor Who, but I suck at chess. Even so, I want to buy this set just because it looks so amazing. However, I lack the financial resources to spend almost $1000 on a chess set, so I am just going to have to admire it from afar.

Personal Energy Orb Makes You Exercise to Power up Your Mouse
It’s hard to get into the habit of exercising unless you’ve got some sweet incentives waiting for you at the finish line. That’s probably what Janko Hofmann and Fabian Pammer were thinking when they came up with the Arduino-powered Personal Energy Orb.

Mega Man Hoodie Has an Ace Up Its Sleeve
…and by ace I mean a Mega Buster. This rockin’ Rockman (aka Mega Man) hoodie is a collaboration between Capcom and Japanese apparel company Punk Drunkers. It has lots of references to the blue bomber, but its main trick is its left sleeve, which when rolled up reveals a textile replica of Mega Man’s staple weapon.

YouTube Launches Official iPhone App

YouTube Launches Official iPhone App
I bet many iPhone users spend a lot of time streaming video from YouTube on their smartphones when they have time to kill. The iPhone has had native support for YouTube since day one, but thanks to its ongoing war with Google, Apple announced not too long ago that it would be discontinuing support for YouTube natively with iOS 6 (and more than likely with the iPhone 5).

Casio Smartwatches: They’ll G-Shock Your Bluetooth

Casio Smartwatches: They’ll G-Shock Your Bluetooth
Smartwatches seem to be hot new thing that watchmakers are releasing these days. What I like about Casio’s offering is that it doesn’t look like most smartwatches, instead looking like most of Casio’s G-Shocks.

Valve Launches Steam Big Picture Mode Beta

Valve Launches Steam Big Picture Mode Beta
Yesterday marked the launch of a new service from Valve with the beta of Big Picture mode for Steam. Big Picture mode is a version of the Steam digital delivery platform designed to operate on big HDTVs rather than smaller computer monitors.

Punkt ES 01: Reduce Your Cable Squid by 75%

Punkt ES 01: Reduce Your Cable Squid by 75%
How big is your cable squid? Mine is pretty big, and threatening to take over more and more space on and around my desk. It’s never been easy to organize cables, but Switzerland’s Punkt seeks to change this by simply hiding away all of your cables in a sleek box.

thumbsUp! Dual SIM Card Case for iPhone 4/4S: Switching Made Easy

thumbsUp! Dual SIM Card Case for iPhone 4/4S: Switching Made Easy
Having a phone that can easily switch between SIM cards is very convenient, especially if you travel a lot. Usually, you’d have to manually take out a SIM card and insert another one in its place, unless you’ve got one of those off-market phones with mulitple SIM slots.

Combat Creatures Attacknid Robot Revealed: Get Ready for The Holiday Toy of the Year
A few months back, robot/toy designer Jaimie Mantzel showed off an early prototype of a six-legged robot toy that looked pretty damned awesome. He announced at the time that he was working on it so a production version could eventually be made, and now we can see the final build in action!

R2-D2 Beer Keg is Perfect for Jawa Tailgating Parties
R2-D2 has done many important things in his life. He carried the Death Star plans, befriended Luke, befriended Anakin before him (sure, whatever.) and even likes to ride in an X-Wing Fighter now and then. And now he is performing his most important task.

Atari 2600 Joystick Earrings are a Joy to Wear

Atari 2600 Joystick Earrings are a Joy to Wear
Gamer girls with a taste for retro consoles will get a tiny thrill from these handmade earrings, done up to look like miniature Atari 2600 joysticks. I always loved the firm, digital feeling of the old 2600 joystick – it worked great for arcade style games.

Storm Cloud Downspout Makes its Own Tiny Rainstorm

Storm Cloud Downspout Makes its Own Tiny Rainstorm
You don’t usually see much creativity in the design of rain gutters and downspouts. They all pretty much look the same to me (when the bums in the alley aren’t stealing them for scrap metal). But here’s a cool design that adds a touch of whimsy to the bottom of a downspout, taking the deluge of water that pours out and turning it into a little storm of its own.
