Review: Sony Hi-Res Audio MDR-1A Headphones & Walkman NWZ-A17 Audio Player

Review: Sony Hi-Res Audio MDR-1A Headphones & Walkman NWZ-A17 Audio Player
Sony recently set me up with a couple of pieces of audio gear from their Hi-Res Audio line, so I could hear first hand the differences between typical digital music players and the higher quality sound one can expect from their product line.

Density People Counter: The Tally King

Density People Counter: The Tally King
Introverts rejoice! A new company called Density has come up with a real-time system to find out if a location is crowded using a fairly simple sensor and a mobile app. Density’s sensor simply detects when someone (or something) passes in front of it.

Final Fantasy AC: Cloud Strife Comes with Fusion Swords
Final Fantasy fans get out your wallets. You will want to plunk down the $119.99 that ThinkGeek wants for this slick action figure. This is a 10.9″ tall figure of Cloud complete with his building slicing Fusion swords.

CD Case Hologram Projector: The Future Was Here All Along

CD Case Hologram Projector: The Future Was Here All Along
You can buy specially constructed prisms that turn a mobile device – or any small display for that matter – into a hologram-like projector. But you can save a few bucks by making one out of a CD case instead.

Xenomorph Wood Stove: On Fire, Everyone Can Hear You Scream

Xenomorph Wood Stove: On Fire, Everyone Can Hear You Scream
On a chilly night, nothing warms your blood like an Alien Xenomorph wood stove, while also chilling you to the core. Everytime you throw a log in, you’ll have to count your fingers. This horrific wood stove was made by Burned by Design and I wouldn’t want to be sitting by this thing on a cold dark night.

MicroSlice Pocket Laser Engraver: Slice in a Dice

MicroSlice Pocket Laser Engraver: Slice in a Dice
Last month we saw how you can reuse a DVD-RW’s laser diode to make a small laser engraver. But if you’d rather buy something like it instead, check out the MicroSlice. Made by Instructables member SilverJimmy, MicroSlice has a 405nm laser module, similar to the ones found in Blu-ray drives.

Pac-Man Arcade Cabinet Wall Clock: Waka Clocka Game

Pac-Man Arcade Cabinet Wall Clock: Waka Clocka Game
Time is a power pellet in this retro Pac-Man wall clock. Made to celebrate the yellow gobbler’s 35th birthday – the game was first released on May 22, 1980 – the ~2ft. tall clock has a handcrafted case that looks like the game’s original arcade cabinet.

Deal: Save 63% on the 1byone Digital Indoor HDTV Antenna
If you’ve decided to cut the cord and skip cable and satellite in favor of streaming services, you still can watch your local channels the old fashioned way – over the air. In fact, OTA HDTV digital signals are often better quality than the highly-compressed versions that get passed along by cable or satellite providers.

Perpetual Slinky Escalator Makes You Work for Your Amusement

Perpetual Slinky Escalator Makes You Work for Your Amusement
A year ago Creatables came up with a miniature inclined Slinky treadmill. Sadly, it appears the toy never made it into production. But one of our favorite woodworkers Matthias Wandel came up with a DIY and hand-powered alternative.

Tiny LEGO Arcade Cabinets Hit LEGO Ideas

Tiny LEGO Arcade Cabinets Hit LEGO Ideas
LEGO fan Ethan Marak (aka BreaksBricks) hopes that someday soon we could get off-the-shelf LEGO kits that let us build tiny video arcades for our minifigs. He’s currently raising support for his project over on LEGO Ideas, which includes a couple of different stand-up arcade cabinets, a cocktail-style machine, gumball machine, and even one of those old-school change machines to break bills.

Nyko Type Pad PS4 Mini Keyboard: QWERTY Awaits

Nyko Type Pad PS4 Mini Keyboard: QWERTY Awaits
The PS4’s touchpad makes it easier to use the console’s virtual keyboard, but nothing beats the real deal, like Nyko’s new Type Pad for the current gen PlayStation. This isn’t the first mini keyboard that fits into the DualShock 4, but it is the first one to have dedicated @ and .com keys.

Remote AR Augmented Reality Troubleshooting App: Call a Friend 2.0

Remote AR Augmented Reality Troubleshooting App: Call a Friend 2.0
We’ve seen a couple of ways for augmented reality technology to train or enhance one’s knowledge in real time, even if the teacher isn’t in the same location as the learner. ScopeAR’s Remote AR app is a lot like that, but it’s geared towards troubleshooting.

Darth Vader Helmet Mug for Darth Roast Coffee

Darth Vader Helmet Mug for Darth Roast Coffee
I imagine Darth Vader isn’t much of a morning person. He probably doesn’t sleep that well in that hot mask and I bet his significant other complains about his noisy breathing all night. The result would be a Vader that you don’t want to talk to in the mornings lest he force crush your balls.

Review: Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K Drone

Review: Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K Drone
It’s rare that I get my hands on a gadget these days that lives up to my expectations, let alone exceeds them, but Yuneec did both with their incredible Typhoon Q500 4K drone. This is no toy quadcopter.

Sherlock Funko POP! Action Figures are Elementary, My Dear Watson.

Sherlock Funko POP! Action Figures are Elementary, My Dear Watson.
I’m not a big Sherlock Holmes buff. I’ve seen the films with Robert Downey Jr. and they left a lot to be desired. On the other hand, I am a huge fan of the CBS series Elementary though.

The X-files LEGO Set That Almost Was

The X-files LEGO Set That Almost Was
We have some good news and bad news for X-Files fans who are also LEGO fans The good news is that a concept for an awesome X-Files LEGO set was submitted to LEGO Ideas. The bad news is that it was rejected because it was thought to be too mature for children.
