Katana Bookends Help You Slice Through Reading Material in Seconds
While I still have years worth of old paper books lying around my house, I have to be honest and say that I don’t read much in the way of physical books anymore. Other than the occasional graphic novel or comic book, I prefer to read on my iPad these days.

Meet the Gold Man of Pimpri: Smart Investor or Foolish Romantic?

Kingston HyperX Predator 1TB Flash Drive: You Don’t Want to Lose This One
Kingston just unveiled a technological marvel at CES 2013: a 1TB USB 3.0 flash drive. A terabyte on a stick. If you can make something as insane as that, then you deserve to name it whatever the hell you like, which is what exactly Kingston did.

Wynkoop Beer is Brewed With Three BPB – That’s Three Balls-Per-Barrel

Shipping Container Sauna: If This Box is a Rockin’, Don’t Come a Knockin’

Shipping Container Sauna: If This Box is a Rockin’, Don’t Come a Knockin’
I’ve seen images of a hotel made up of shipping containers, and modern architects using them, but this is the first time I’ve seen one used as a sauna. There are plenty of these old containers around and I bet that you can have them for cheap, if you want to use one of these as a basis for some construction.

LG Unveils World’s First Curved OLED TV

LG Unveils World’s First Curved OLED TV
My local movie theater has a number of auditoriums with different screen sizes. While most of those theaters have flat screens, I’ve noticed that the larger auditoriums have screens that are actually curved.

Tetris Magnets Let You Have Some Fun on Your Fridge
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of Tetris. I used to play it on our old Nintendo console, but I’ve only recently rediscovered it when I saw it on the Google Play store. Now, the classic game is jumping off of the screens of gaming consoles and tablets because now you can piece together Tetris pieces on your fridge with these officially-licensed Tetris magnets.

Chinese Man Dies After 40-Hour Gaming Marathon

Chinese Man Dies After 40-Hour Gaming Marathon
Actually, I’m kind of surprised that there aren’t more deaths caused by compulsive gaming. Just like anything else, you can become completely addicted to games if you’re not careful.

Ramen Spoon+Fork: How a Spork Should Be

Ramen Spoon+Fork: How a Spork Should Be
I think they had the right idea when they began making sporks and including these hybrid utensils in packs of instant noodles. However, they left a lot to be desired, especially since they didn’t really do a good job when it came to actually scooping up soup or noodles.
