Tvilight Street Lamps Only Light up If Someone’s Around

Tvilight Street Lamps Only Light up If Someone’s Around
The streets are often empty in the dead of night, but they’re all still well-lit anyway. That makes sense, because I’d want it to be well-lit in case I find myself walking home in the wee hours of the morning.

Move over, NFC. Uniqul is getting ready to unveil a new payment system that utilizes facial recognition to process payments.

HotLogic Portable Mini Oven Warms Your Lunch While You Work
While many of us opt to heat up our lunches in the microwave at the office, we all know it’s not necessarily the best way to reheat cold food. Microwaves do strange things to food, often affecting texture and flavor, and sometimes overcooking already cooked food.

Tetris Heat-Changing Mug: Coffeecade

Tetris Heat-Changing Mug: Coffeecade
I know that this is probably sacrilege, but I actually was never that big of a fan of Tetris. It’s not because it wasn’t a monumental arcade game. Nope. It’s because I sucked at it. I’d start out strong, clearing lines with the best of them.

Donkey Kong M.C. Escher Animated Chalk Art

Donkey Kong M.C. Escher Animated Chalk Art
M.C. Escher’s art is pretty mindblowing. It always featured impossible staircases that go up or down forever depending on how your eyes see it. Donkey Kong is pretty amazing too, but for entirely different reasons that only a video game nerd can appreciate.
