Kubi Movable Robotic Tablet Stand: Teleneckesis

Kubi Movable Robotic Tablet Stand: Teleneckesis
Thanks to the Internet, the “office” is no longer a strictly physical location. I’m working from home right now, wearing clothes that even a bum would find distasteful. Despite this awesome setup, we can still do better.

Hue Toaster: Make Perfectly Brown Toast Each & Every Time
You know, when my toaster doesn’t get my piece of toast just right, I get really pissed off! OK, I don’t actually get that mad, but burnt toast is definitely an annoyance.

R2-D2 Wooden iPhone Dock: Help Me Etsy-Wan Kenobi, You’re My Only Hope
You know, it’s funny that with all of the R2-D2 merch I’ve seen over the years, I’ve never envisioned the little maintenance droid in wood. But now that I’ve seen him made out of the stuff, I rather like the way he looks.

Massive Costs All But Rule out Nationwide Google Fiber Coverage
I know hordes of Internet geeks out there like me were hoping that Google would roll out its insanely fast gigabit Google Fiber Internet service all around the country. I’ve been wishing that Google had plans to make the service widely available after it saw how successful it was within Kansas City.

WynCASE Adds Physical Game Buttons to iOS Devices

WynCASE Adds Physical Game Buttons to iOS Devices
While I don’t game that much on my iPhone, I have discovered that while touch-based controls might seem intuitive, but they are just awful for space shooters and other kinds of fast-paced action games. That’s one of the reasons why the WynCASE will probably work well.

Minecraft Light-Up Torch Won’t Keep Dirt Off Your Floor

Minecraft Light-Up Torch Won’t Keep Dirt Off Your Floor
An officially-licensed replica of the handy torch from Minecraft. Unlike the one in the game, not only can you place this anywhere you like, you can also – drum roll please – take it with you, even when it’s lit.

DARPA Fills Bodies with Foam to Save Lives

DARPA Fills Bodies with Foam to Save Lives
I’m frequently impressed with the projects coming out of DARPA, but most of the stories I’ve come across have been about their advances in robotics and defense systems. This new technology is designed specifically to save lives of wounded soldiers and civilians, and it does it with a simple spray foam.

My Little Pony Handgun: Friendship is a Semi-Automatic
We’ve seen a few cute and cuddly weapons in the past, but this handgun is a real rarity. This a semi-automatic handgun from Springfield Armory that features custom Rarity grips. Ha ha. At least we think they are custom grips.

Speaker Planter Answers Question: What’s the Sound of a Plant Growing?

Speaker Planter Answers Question: What’s the Sound of a Plant Growing?
If you’re both a horticulturist and an audiophile, then have I got the perfect thing for you. Ok, it’s probably more for the gardener than the audio fanatic since it doesn’t actually function as a speaker, but this thing is still kind of a neat idea. While it looks just like a bookshelf speaker, what you’re looking at is a 3D-printed planter.

Winnie the Who Cake: Tasty and Really Delicious in Stomach (TARDIS)

Winnie the Who Cake: Tasty and Really Delicious in Stomach (TARDIS)
Now I’m not sure what the intersection is between Doctor Who and Winnie the Pooh fans is out there, but I think it’s actually a pretty big group. I certainly appreciate both of them. What makes this mashup between Who and Pooh even better of course is that it’s totally edible.

JXD S5110 Handheld Game Console: The Unholy Marriage of a PSP and Android
While I’m personally holding out for the Archos GamePad, if you absolutely must have an Android 4 gaming device before the holidays, you might want to check 0ut this oddity. The Chinese made JXD 5110 bears more than a passing resemblance to the Sony PSP, but it’s all Android, all the time.
