I/O Denim Jeans Add Perfect Pocket for Smartphones

I/O Denim Jeans Add Perfect Pocket for Smartphones
Depending on what type of jeans you wear, I think most of us will agree that it can be uncomfortable having to carry your smartphone in the front pocket. Years ago, I had a pair of dress slacks that had a little pocket midway down the thigh that unzipped that you could poke a smartphone into.

Shark Cake Toppers: We’re Going to Need a Bigger Cupcake

Shark Cake Toppers: We’re Going to Need a Bigger Cupcake
How can you not love sharks? These awesome creatures are both feared and admired as some of natures most incredible creations. But it’s eat-or-be-eaten in the world of the shark, so maybe you should bite into them before they bite into you.

Facebook Testing Paid Messaging

Facebook Testing Paid Messaging
Some people love Facebook, some people hate it. For me, it’s somewhere in-between. Unlike some other services like Twitter for which I keep a tab or a screen open, I check on what’s happening on FB a couple of times a day, no more.

POC’s Receptor BUG Snowboard Helmets Powered by Beats by Dre
I used to always listen to music while I was riding my motorcycle, but after a couple of close calls, I decided to switch the beats off. That being said, when you’re shredding powder, there aren’t as many obstacles that can kill you.

Atari 2600 Hot Wheels: Car-tridges

Atari 2600 Hot Wheels: Car-tridges
I like to think that I’m pretty plugged into retro geek culture, but I have to hand it to the guys over at You Found a Secret Area! for turning up something I’ve not seen before – a series of Atari 2600-themed cars from Hot Wheels.

Steampunk Arm Guard Has Working Bluetooth Keyboard: Typepunk

Steampunk Arm Guard Has Working Bluetooth Keyboard: Typepunk
There’s just something so retro-futuristic about the idea of giant wrist-worn communicators. In the real world, we pretty much skipped right over these  contraptions and went straight to smartphones. So if you don’t have a Pip-Boy 3000 lying around, here’s the next best thing.

DIY Google Project Glass: I Am Locutus of Nerd!

DIY Google Project Glass: I Am Locutus of Nerd!
Even though people haven’t been that hyped up about Google’s Project Glass of late, some technophiles still couldn’t wait and decided to hack together their own augmented reality eyewear. This particular design makes you look like some sort of space pirate.

Lobster Got Your Phone? Yeah, Mine Too

Lobster Got Your Phone? Yeah, Mine Too
In this day and age where virtually anything and everything is being turned into phone cases, it was only a matter of time before we saw a couple inspired by a lot of people’s favorite seafood: lobsters.

Christmas Tree with Individually-Controlled LEDs: OCD Lightsystem

Christmas Tree with Individually-Controlled LEDs: OCD Lightsystem
We see geeky Christmas trees every year – in fact I became a fan of Technabob because of a Christmas tree post! – and 2012 is no different. But this Christmas tree’s nerd side isn’t obvious.

How to Delete Your Instagram Account (and Save Your Images)

How to Delete Your Instagram Account (and Save Your Images)
Even though Instagram did a 180 this week, after announcing that they could use everyone’s photos to make money, you never know what might happen to your content with these kind of free services. So if you’re done with Instagram, here’s how to safely backup your photos and port them onto another service, like Flickr.

Sutter’s Mill Meteorite Broke the Atmospheric Entry Speed Record

Sutter’s Mill Meteorite Broke the Atmospheric Entry Speed Record
You might remember back in May of this year I mentioned a meteorite that had entered the atmosphere over Northern California and caused a fireball during the day. Researchers were quick to bring in a giant blimp to search for large fragments of the meteor on the ground.

Problem Posture? There’s an App for That!

Problem Posture? There’s an App for That!
I remember a stage in my life where almost everyone around me constantly berated me for my bad posture. However, I wouldn’t exactly call it ‘bad’ – more like ‘comfortable.’ If you’re encountering a similar problem with your own posture or with someone you know, then you’ll be happy to know that technology is making it easier to sit properly with LUMO.

LEGO Hotel Coming to LEGOLAND California
LEGO fans have a treat in store if they are planning a trip to LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, California next year. You’ll soon be able to stay in the official Legoland Hotel which will open on April 5, 2013.

Tie Mags: The Modern Way of Wearing Ties
There was a time when I had to wear a tie everyday. Thankfully, those days are long gone, but anyone can appreciate the cleverness that went into designing this way to keep your tie in place.
