Holy Crap, This Nixie Clock is Cool

Holy Crap, This Nixie Clock is Cool
There’s just something so cool about the design of Nixie tubes – I think it’s just that for such an old technology, they’re still sort of timeless. It’s been a little while since I saw a really good looking Nixie clock though, but this one was definitely worth the wait.

Geeky Christmas Trees Through the Ages

Geeky Christmas Trees Through the Ages
Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fun and inspired Christmas trees based on video games, science fiction and other pop culture memes. So I figured that this holiday season, I’d put together a compilation of some of my favorites of all time.

Solar Panel Snowboard: Shred & Charge

Solar Panel Snowboard: Shred & Charge
Signal Snowboards has invented one of the most fun ways to charge a gadget: juicing up while snowboarding. The company made a one-of-a-kind snowboard that’s topped with solar panels (and most likely a battery), letting it act as a solar charger even while being used.

Ben Heck’s Naughty or Nice Meter Helps Keep Kids in Line. If They Still Believe in Santa.

Ben Heck’s Naughty or Nice Meter Helps Keep Kids in Line. If They Still Believe in Santa.
Master modder Ben Heck recently finished a Holiday hack that could help the young ones stay behaved. I say could because as we all know how utterly wild these creatures known as “children” can be. But if your little loved ones are still spellbound by the concept of Santa, they could be controlled with Ben Heck’s Naughty or Nice Meter.

Gingerbread Mars Rover: Candy Curiosity

Gingerbread Mars Rover: Candy Curiosity
I think we just made a huge discovery. Mars is made out of candy. It’s also apparently in a parallel universe where it is flat and in someone’s house, next to their stairs.

Darth Vader Gets Upcycled: The Junk Side of the Force

Darth Vader Gets Upcycled: The Junk Side of the Force
We’re so used to seeing Darth Vader dressed in all black, but his iconic helmet really works well no matter what color it’s done in. Heck, even Hello Kitty Vader was pretty imposing. But I think that this version of Vader, built out of old bits of reclaimed electronics and other junk looks really awesome.

Men’s Fish Tank Platform Shoes: Pimp My Heels

Men’s Fish Tank Platform Shoes: Pimp My Heels
People are coming up with all sorts of weird shoes lately, but these men’s platform shoes with aquariums in the heels might actually be the most wacky of them all. Clearly inspired by I’m Gonna Git You Sucka, they’re definitely not something you’ll be wearing to work, unless the street is your office, that is.

Star Wars Leg Lamp Deserves a Major Award

Star Wars Leg Lamp Deserves a Major Award
Only one thing in the world could’ve dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window. And that’s the soft glow of electric robot sex gleaming in the window. Okay, R2-D2 isn’t that hot, but did you get a load of C-3PO’s gams?

WhatsApp Messenger: Now Free for iOS

WhatsApp Messenger: Now Free for iOS
WhatsApp is arguably one of the most popular cross-platform messenger apps available out there. Though until now, WhatsApp hasn’t been free on iOS. You had to shell out $0.99 to get it on your iPhone. Well, for a limited time, WhatsApp is free.

ioSafe Solo G3 Hard Drive: It’s So Rugged, It Might Outlast You
It’s always good to add some redundancy to your computer system. When a hard drive fails, it’s always problematic trying to restore lost data. It’s even worse when you are faced with a natural disaster, such as a fire, a flood – or the apocalypse.

Whether you need to stay hydrated or you’re just a drunk, you should have a flask. But if you find that carrying one is inconvenient, then you might want to wear one instead. We have the FlaskTie for the guys, and now the Flask Bangle for the ladies.

DNA2Diamonds: Wear Your Dead Pets Around Your Neck

DNA2Diamonds: Wear Your Dead Pets Around Your Neck
I could give you countless reasons why I love my dog. If I had to sum it all up, it would be because she loves me for who I am and forgives any small imperfections in the blink of an eye.

Batman Chess Set Priced for Bruce Wayne

Batman Chess Set Priced for Bruce Wayne
Let me start by saying that this Batman chess set will set you back $795(USD). That’s a lot of money in this economy – especially during the Christmas season. It’s amazing just to behold, let alone play with.

Light by Moore’s Cloud Goes for Homegrown Crowdfunding
About a month ago, a project launched on Kickstarter called the Light by Moore’s Cloud. Unfortunately, the project failed to meet its funding goal, despite gathering about 2,000 supporters.
