I’ve had the unpleasant experience of having the spoon hit the tip of my nose as I sipped my morning coffee. Of course, I could just take the spoon out and throw it in the sink, but I like stirring my coffee once in a while.
Back in February, we mentioned some cool build-your-own iPhone remote control Brick Cars from Utico that had landed in Japan. These cars let you drive around using your iPhone or other Apple gadget as a controller and you get to build the car as well.
The wedding cake business is a racket. When my wife and I got married, I seem to remember the extravagant wedding cake cost something like 2,000 smackeroos. And while it looked beautiful, it actually didn’t taste that great.
If you own a MacBook, then you’re probably thankful for its handy MagSafe, the magnetized power connector for your laptop’s charger. Not only does it make connecting the charger to your laptop insanely easy, it also detaches fairly easily.
Online storage services seem like a must, especially if you’ve ever suffered from a local hard drive failure. These services will help you back up a number of items from your computers, so that you can access them from anywhere and in the event that a computer fails, you’ll have an offsite backup.
It doesn’t take a computer engineer to be intrigued by the appearance of printed circuit boards, the foundation and highway for the hundreds of electronic components that make our electronic devices function. Thier cryptic yet functional arrangement – like an alien city viewed from above – inspired designer Lukas Scherrer to make the Memory Rug.
Have you met the Block Man? He’s a life-sized non-person who has two eyes, a nose, a mouth, a pair of arms and a pair of legs, just like you and me. The only thing is, he’s not alive, because while he has the same body parts as you and I, he’s made up of nothing but ink and cardboard.
Everyone needs a place to stow the stuff that fills their pockets. As for myself, I tend to leave my keys in my pockets at all times, because I’ve forgotten them before, my smartphone is near me most of the day, and I usually keep my wallet on a cupboard in my bedroom.
USB drives come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, not all of them can be labeled. Whether you want to put on a name label or indicate what type of files are inside, you often won’t be able to do so because the drives are usually too small to fit a label on.
I remember that it caused quite a stir when Mattel decided to manufacture Barbie dolls with more realistic bodies. By that, I mean an average-sized chest, a slightly wider waist, and with a couple more inches (doll-inches, that is) added to her hips.
Back in 1971, the Soviet Union sent a spacecraft to Mars. The spacecraft was called the Mars 3 Lander and it touched down on the surface of the red planet and continued transmitting for several seconds on December 2, 1971.
While I’m sure most of you never had the *cough* pleasure of actually playing a game with the Nintendo/Mattel Power Glove, you can certainly pick a working one up over on eBay if you’ve got about $100 kicking around.
What the hell happened here? Did a Predator go hunting the Borg and take a trophy? Did the Borg assimilate a zombie? I have no idea. I just know that skulls are cool. Robot skulls are even better, and this hot, dead, robotic mess looks pretty bad-ass to me.
SuperTooth makes some very nice Bluetooth audio gear and speakerphones for smartphone users. Back during CES in January, the company unveiled several new Bluetooth products including the Disco Twin speaker set, which offers true wireless stereo over Bluetooth.
How often do you end up falling asleep on your keyboard? Hopefully not very often. It’s pretty uncomfortable and can make your cheek look like a grid of squares. The folks at ZO-loft (which also happens to be the name of an antidepressant) designed this sofa bed to make the whole process a bit more comfortable.
