The swiveling displays on some modern cameras make it easier to shoot pictures from a variety of angles. iPhones and iPads don’t have swiveling displays (yet), but this attachable right angle lens can help even up the playing field. The HiLo’s three lenses and prism help it do its job.

Belkin NetCam: Big Brother Is Watching You… At Night… In the Dark…
I can’t remember exactly the last time I paid for a webcam, probably 8 years ago, or something like that, however if you use your webcam a lot, it makes sense to buy something with a better sensor than the one you’ve got stuck on the top of your laptop.

Man Divorces Wife for Being Ugly, Judge Awards Him with Damages – Wait, What?
This is as bizarre as news can get. A man boy recently filed for divorce from his now ex-wife because he claimed she was ugly. I call him a ‘boy’ because really I don’t think any real man would do what he did.

JBL SoundFly: Packing Tunes in the Corner of Your Room

Sprout Pencil Sprouts Herbs and Veggies from the Stubby End
Whoever invented pencils didn’t really think things through. Everything’s all good at the start, but what happens when the pencil gets too short and stubby that you can’t really use it to write comfortably? That’s where the folks behind the Sprout Pencil come in.

Red Bull Wingsuit Pilots Fly Between the Tallest Towers in Malaysia
I’m sure everyone is familiar with skydiving, but I’m not sure everyone is familiar with a wingsuit.

Use a Rubber Band As an iPhone Grip
It seems there’s always a better iPhone case around the corner… While I don’t think I have that many iPhone cases, I do have about 8 and unlike some people boast that their iPhones are naked, and without protection, I like to have my iPhone nicely protected, so that I can sell it when I eventually upgrade.

The god of thunder is always up for a drink, so he’s offered up his hammer to anyone who wants to get hammered. Unlike the mythical crusher, you only need a modicum of strength to lift this Mjölnir. Note that the lead picture on Fancy – shown below – is misleading, as it’s entirely different from the one that’s actually being sold.

Modular Puzzle Keyboard Lets You Re-arrange the Keys to Your Heart’s Content
Do you hate how the letters are arranged on all of the keyboards that are currently on the market? If your fingers never really got used to how the keys were arranged, then you’d better hope that this concept design called the ‘Puzzle Keyboard’ gets picked up someday.

Star Wars Corsets: May the Force Be With Your Cinched-Up Waist
Nothing helps accentuate a woman’s curves more than corsets. Recently, more and more geek-themed corsets are getting made to the delight of hot female nerds and non-nerds everywhere. Alien and Doctor Who have had their turns with the Facehugger corset and TARDIS corset, respectively.

Cardrops Turns Your Car Trunk into a Mailbox for Your Convenience

Cardrops Turns Your Car Trunk into a Mailbox for Your Convenience
I love getting mail and packages the old-fashioned way. There’s just something comforting about opening a letter to read it rather than just having to click an e-mail to display the contents. Like most people, I have a job, so I can’t always be home to answer the door when my packages get here.

Belkin iPad Mini Cases: A Little Something for Everyone

Belkin iPad Mini Cases: A Little Something for Everyone
