Latest Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer Looks at the Dark Side

Latest Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer Looks at the Dark Side
I’m trying to keep my expectations in check when it comes to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. After the disappointment of the last three films, I don’t have my hopes up for the new installment. At least this time out there aren’t any annoying new CGI characters, at least that the previews have showed. The latest TV spot for the film has surfaced, and this one focuses on the Dark Side, presumably being narrated by bad guy Kylo Ren.

Planetary Bowls Put Your Cereal in the Milky Way

Planetary Bowls Put Your Cereal in the Milky Way
If you were ever going to have a celestial themed party, you want your snacks served in these bowls. I’d totally put foods that go with each planet inside the bowls. Like Mercury would have incredibly hot salsa. Jupiter’s bowl would be filled with bean dip, Saturn with cheerios and so on.

Homemade LED Flashlight Packs 90,000 Lumens of Retina Searing Light
This oversize flashlight is incredibly bright thanks to its 90,000 lumens of output. For those of you who don’t know how much light that is – it’s more than enough to send Gizmo into rigor mortis.

Tokyo’s Narita International Airport Will Test Megaphone Translators

Tokyo’s Narita International Airport Will Test Megaphone Translators
Japan sees a large number of international travelers and as you can imagine, communication can be a barrier. Somehow everything still keeps moving and the system isn’t bogged down by those communication problems. It is hard for foreigners to understand the announcements at airports, but things may get easier soon.

Review: Phiaton BT 330 NC Wireless Noise-cancelling Headphones
I’ve long been on the hunt for a pair of noise reducing headphones with good audio and build quality, and that are wireless as well. I’ve tried some pairs from Bose before, but both pairs I owned ended up cracking irreparably.

R2-D2 Mini Fridge: Frigdroidaire

R2-D2 Mini Fridge: Frigdroidaire
If you have always wanted a droid to chill your drinks, you are in luck. This R2 unit won’t serve them to you, but it will keep a few drinks cool while you are playing Star Wars Battlefront, and this one won’t cost you $8,000 either. The R2-D2 mini fridge can actually keep food either warm or cold so it is twice as useful.

DIY View-Master Image Digitizer: Archive-Master

DIY View-Master Image Digitizer: Archive-Master
The View-Master has been reborn as a virtual reality system, but you don’t have to throw out your original reels. Julius Howlett came up with a way to make digital copies of the tiny photos using a 3D printed adapter, a 20mm lens and a smartphone. Think of the adapter as a View-Master headset for your phone’s camera.

Guy Makes Giant Lightsabers for His Christmas Display

Guy Makes Giant Lightsabers for His Christmas Display
In order to make his home Christmas light display truly epic this year, Bob Clagett of I Like to Make Stuff made a pair of comically giant lightsabers. I don’t think these could kill anyone since they are pretty hard to hold, but you can actually have a duel with them. He made this crazy things out of materials that anyone can find at the Home Depot.

Lampster is a Bipedal LED Lamp of Awesome

Lampster is a Bipedal LED Lamp of Awesome
One glance at the Lampster and I automatically thought of the Lensor creatures from the Riddick franchise. Those were the weird people with the giant lens things on their faces. Lampster won’t see where you are hiding, but it will shed light on your room, desk, or even the outdoors. This little robot looking lamp stands a substantial 18-inches tall and has a giant lamp for a head.

Japanese Artist Makes Pokémon Characters from Leaves: Leafymon
Pokémon fans will appreciate the art that one Japanese artist is showing off. Twitter user xxx2251 made this cool Pokémon art using only leaves that fell from trees. The result is quite beautiful and looks deceptively simple to do. The two characters the artist made so far are Charizard and Charmander.

Domino’s Offers One-button Pizza Ordering: Cheesy Button
The pizza business has changed a lot over the last decade. Take Domino’s. Over half of its customers are now ordering via its mobile apps. That’s cool and all, but they are still looking for ways to simplify the ordering process even further.
