There’s nothing more annoying than having your bicycle light give out in the middle of a night ride. It can also get dangerous. That’s why I think that a light that can be recharged using solar energy is a good idea, so you won’t have to remember to change batteries and get caught in the dark.
Inkjet printers are relatively cheap. That’s because it’s the inkjet printer cartridges that will burn a hole in your pocket. It’s the old razor-razorblade business model.
Depending on how often you use your printer, you could be changing cartridges as often as every week.
Popping bubble wrap is pretty calming. It’s an unconventional means to deal with anger or frustration, but hey, it works and it’s way cheaper than a session with a therapist.
Taking bubble wrap to the next level is LA-based comedy “imaginator” Eric Buss, who came up with the fascinating contraption that’s aptly called the Bubble Wrap Bike.
To celebrate the launch of their fastest ŠKODA car ever, the Octavia vRS, the company has something for dads who want their toddlers to travel in style. This baby stroller is called the vRS Mega Man-Pram and it has the same styling as a ŠKODA car.
There aren’t that many maglev trains in operation yet (one is currently operating in Shanghai, China and another is in Japan). There have been skytrains and monorails before, but this is the world’s first magnetically levitating system of mass transit, which will be built in Tel Aviv, Israel.
So, when your wife puts on this inflatable boat dress, how are you going to answer when she asks if it accentuates her rear end? No, it doesn’t make your aft look big at all – your fore and aft are the same size.
Clocks come in a bunch of shapes and sizes, but this clock made from a bike wheel is certainly unique. The resulting wall clock is quite big, but definitely something interesting to hang in your pad if you’re a bicyclist.
This is the Catpanion Cube, a feline residence made by Instructables member/Aperture Science vet/cat slave Rachael Whitaker. I hear that when you place your cat inside, she’ll be simultaneously dead and alive, stuck inside the dimension that the Portal gun uses to generate shortcuts.
Photography has come a long way since its beginnings, but there are still some amazing things to be discovered by looking at how things worked back then. Inspired by the early days of photography, this lens has been re-engineered from one that was invented in the 19th century.
Talking toys are nothing new, but most toys simply spout off pre-recorded sound bites. Not Supertoy Teddy. He’s a teddy bear that can actually hold a conversation, i.e. it will listen to what you say and respond accordingly.
I’ve had the opportunity to try out a number of head-mounted displays over the years, and most of them have been pretty underwhelming, either from a display quality or comfort perspective. And while many users are waiting to see what the consumer version of the Oculus Rift has to offer, there is already a very capable head-mounted display – with a head-tracking option – on the market today.
For kids, field trips are one of the biggest highlights in school. They offer a temporary escape from the dreary confines of the classroom once every few months (or weeks, if they’re lucky.)
Just because you’re all grown up now doesn’t mean you can’t go on field trips anymore.
I was just thinking about picking up some new pillows for our bed, since I think I need something with a little more support. While a good firm pillow can help you sleep better, I don’t think that sleeping on a log is particularly good for your head and neck.
