Clipless Secures Your Phone on Almost Any Surface
Smartphones are definitely smart and come with a lot of neat features, but sometimes I just wish it were smarter on the physical attachment category. Some apps are great to use when driving, cooking, or exercising, but there are few stands and clip-on accessories that’ll help you keep your phone in place.

Guy Turns Trees into Dragons: Edward Chainsawhands
It’s a sad fact that when nature and man collide, nature usually loses. Many of us hate to cut down trees, but sometimes you have no choice. Maybe it is mandated by local authorities or maybe it needs to go because it is in danger of falling.

Kid Wants to Meet Iron Man, Meets Robert Downey Jr. Instead, Cries
Kids love Iron Man. They don’t care about the guy in the suit. It could be a monkey in there and they wouldn’t care. They just want to watch him fly around and blow stuff up.

3D Printing with Bees

3D Printing with Bees
3D printing tech can be quite amazing, but it’s usually done by melting plastic – or maybe sugar. But this is the first time I’ve heard of 3D printing using bees – or as it’s being called “3-B” printing.

RoboRoach Kit Lets You Control a Living Roach With Your Smartphone

RoboRoach Kit Lets You Control a Living Roach With Your Smartphone
I’m not particularly fond of roaches, but I don’t exactly hate them either. I’d just rather not come face to face with any one of these insects because creepy crawly insects just give me the heebie jeebies.

Takara Tomy Transforming Robot Car Prototype: Brave Robotics in Disguise

Takara Tomy Transforming Robot Car Prototype: Brave Robotics in Disguise
Last year Kenji Ishida and his company Brave Robotics released 10 units of his awesome remote controlled car that can transform into a mecha. Unsurprisingly, all 10 units were bought, and there’s no word on when the company will release more.

Airbus Bag2Go Smart Luggage: All It Needs to Do Now Is to Follow Me Automatically
Luggage hasn’t changed much in the last few decades, but there’s hope on the horizon. How about having suitcases with built-in GPS that you will never lose again? I’d certainly consider that, since losing your luggage can certainly get painful at times.

Students to Pilot Robotic Spheres on the International Space Station
Robotic sports were bound to involve balls in space at some point.

Xenomorph eggs are an exotic treat. Normally you can only find them on the menus of restaurants on far flung planets, but now they have come to Earth. Chris-Rachael from Kitchen Overlord has a how-to on making them if you are craving an alien treat.

Star Wars Sun Reflector for Your Landspeeder

Star Wars Sun Reflector for Your Landspeeder
It sucks that we have to ride around in Honda Civics and the like, they are driving Landspeeders and piloting X-Wings in a galaxy far, far away; not to mention the Millennium Falcon. But hey, you can make your car look like it is part of the Star Wars universe and protect it from those hot Tatooine suns at the same time.

Vianney Halter’s Deep Space Tourbillon: Analog Time from Deep Space Nine!
I’m for any watch inspired by science-fiction, but you probably wouldn’t have guessed that this awesome tourbillon watch, which costs probably as much as your house got its inspiration from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Kitchen Safe Time Lock Container: Grub Lockdown

Kitchen Safe Time Lock Container: Grub Lockdown
We buy safes to keep our valuables out of other people’s hands. But what if we want to keep something out of our hands? Unless you’re really strong, a safe would be overkill. David Krippendorf and Ryan Tseng have an alternative – the Kitchen Safe, a container with a lid that can be set to unlock only after a certain amount of time.

How to Survive The Upcoming Google Reader Apocalypse

How to Survive The Upcoming Google Reader Apocalypse
I’ve been using Google Reader for about eight years, if memory serves me well. The service has never been perfect, but it allowed me to skim and read thousands of articles everyday for my job. It’s something that can become quite unmanageable if you don’t keep up to date with them every day.

Iron Man Arc Reactor Ring Will Keep Your Love Alive

Iron Man Arc Reactor Ring Will Keep Your Love Alive
…or you can use it to keep metal shards at bay, as your last resort to keep your finger alive. You will claim that endearing vulnerability for four movies. Then for some unfathomable reason you will retcon the arc reactor’s reason for existence, and you will do so in the most hurried way possible.
