Fluxo Smart Lamp Keeps the Peace
It seems like every time I am watching something cool on TV, my wife decides it’s time to do some sort of art project on the table right behind me. That means she wants the light on in the dining room, which throws a glare on the TV that annoys me through the entire show.

Fallout’s Vault Boy in LEGO Form
Like many of you, I have been spending way too much time playing Fallout 4 and wandering through the wasteland. This game was worth the wait. I wish we had some official LEGO sets based on the game, but at least we have fan made creations like this cool LEGO version of Vault Boy.

Star Wars Lightsaber Selfie Stick is Cool, Still Annoying
One of the worst inventions that has come about in the last several years has to be the selfie stick. I want to punch everyone I see using one, but I refrain. I might be a bit less inclined to punch you if you had one like this Star Wars Lightsaber Selfie Stick… I said MIGHT.
