Nixie/LED Clock Combines Old School and New School Lighting Tech

Nixie/LED Clock Combines Old School and New School Lighting Tech
I’m a sucker for the warm orange glow of Nixie tubes. There’s just something just so retro-modern about the way they look – all I can think of is the technology in the movie Brazil. I just stumbled across a really cool Nixie tube clock which accents the tubes with modern LEDs, adding even more to the look.

In Space, No One Can Hear You Squeeze (a Wash Cloth)

In Space, No One Can Hear You Squeeze (a Wash Cloth)
Let’s be honest, everything is more difficult in space than here on Earth. It’s hard enough just to get into space and bring all of the things humans need to survive. It’s an amazing technological feat for astronauts to live and work on the International Space Station in and of itself.

Budweiser Releasing Bowtie Shaped Cans: the 11th Doctor Rejoices
For some reason – probably because they are all closet Doctor Who fans – Budweiser has decided to introduce a bow-tie shaped can. Drunks everywhere are suddenly feeling all classy.

Lady Froggy Steampunk Gatling Gun for Dainty Death Dealing
If you’re into steampunk cosplay, you know that it’s important to have the right weapon in your arsenal. While there are plenty of manly steampunk weapons out there, there aren’t too many for the ladies. The Lady Froggy aims to change that.

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Big Boss Action Figure: Snake in a Box
Revoltech recently released this 25th Anniversary action figure of Naked Snake aka Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. It comes with a lot of props, but the plainest of its props is also the best one: a cardboard box.

Finally, a Robot That Can Help You Build IKEA Furniture
Assembling that new cabinet or entertainment center can be a real pain in the butt. Mostly because you need an extra pair of arms. It helps if you are an octopus. If you are tired of assembling IKEA furniture, researchers have created a new robot to help.

Pucs Promise to Chill Your Drinks without Adding Water

Pucs Promise to Chill Your Drinks without Adding Water
If you like cold drinks, you have probably experienced the irritating dilution that comes as the ice in your cup melts. This is particularly troublesome if you’re into soft drinks that become diluted and lose their flavor or if you have a penchant for expensive liquor and you want your drink full strength.

Lady Finds Nintendo Game Worth $15,000 at Thrift Shop

Lady Finds Nintendo Game Worth $15,000 at Thrift Shop
It pays to hunt for treasure at thrift stores sometimes. Here’s proof. A North Carolina woman spent $7.99 on an old Nintendo game at a Goodwill store. Nothing unusual there. The unusual part – the game was Stadium Events, one of the rarest titles ever sold, and worth a cool $15,000.

Dark as Night Motorcycle Helmet Brings out the Bat in the Man

Dark as Night Motorcycle Helmet Brings out the Bat in the Man
Sorry UD Replicas, but Helmet Dawg beat you to this one – a Batman-themed motorcycle helmet. It’s not officially licensed though, so Helmet Dawg prefers to call it the Dark as Night Helmet: Black Edition. Or perhaps it isn’t actually a nod to Batman but to Felix the Cat.

Provo, Utah to Be the Next Google Fiber City

Provo, Utah to Be the Next Google Fiber City
The first city in the country to get the incredibly fast Google Fiber Internet service was Kansas City. Earlier this month, Google announced the second city to get access to its incredibly fast Internet service would be Austin, Texas.

Donkey Kong Cake is Totally Bananas

Donkey Kong Cake is Totally Bananas
While I love both Donkey Kong and cake, I’m much more capable of finishing a cake than finishing the classic arcade game. I always used to get stuck around level three, and that was on a good day.

Star Wars Mobile: Hang in There, Han!

Star Wars Mobile: Hang in There, Han!
Who says mobiles are only for hanging over a baby’s crib? I’m a full-grown man, and I’d be tickled to have this Star Wars inspired mobile hanging in my office.

Super Mario Bros. Lamp Lights up the Darkest Secret Areas of Your Mushroom Kingdom
If you are going to make a Super Mario Bros. lamp, it definitely needs to have some pipes in it. And this lamp uses pipes very effectively, being made from black iron pipes with a candelabra lightbulb sticking out of one of them.

Grillin Villain Aprons: Kill the Cook

Grillin Villain Aprons: Kill the Cook
Etsy shop Haute Mess makes Grillin Villains, a line of handmade aprons that are based on the costumes of famous supervillains. Haute Mess gleefully proclaims, “If you gotta cook and clean why not look evil doing so?!” Because you want people to eat what you cook?

Having a Ball with the Sphero Robot

Having a Ball with the Sphero Robot
I first saw the Sphero robotic ball about 2 years ago at CES, but I never really got a chance to play with one hands-on until now. When I first saw it in action, all I wanted to say was “Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.” This little orb is packed with cool technology that lets you use it as a remote-control vehicle, a game controller, and tech toy/plaything.

Filedrop Wireless File Sharing: Dropbox Lite

Filedrop Wireless File Sharing: Dropbox Lite
A couple of months ago we found out about Instashare, an app that lets you transfer files from an iOS device to an OS X computer and vice versa. Filedrop is a lot like Instashare, but it has a couple of significant features that make it seem like the better of the two.
