Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass

Menas Zoom Adds Adjustable Zoom to Magnifying Glass
You know what a magnifying glass needs? MORE MAGNIFICATION. Though this doesn’t seem to be like a particularly bad idea, it does seem silly to put zoom on something that is meant for magnifying. Though I must say, there is no part of me that would object if one of these showed up on my doorstep.

Google Goggles Now Solves Sudoku Puzzles
Ever played a game of Sudoku? I went through a phase a little while back where I was obsessed with the game. I love solving puzzles, and these fancy number games were rather addictive. I made it a goal to be able to beat them without any sort of note-taking.

Mindflex Duel Lets You Challenge Your Friends to a Battle of Brainpower
Games are better when you can beat someone at them, right? That Mindflex game that came out a couple of years ago looked pretty cool, right? I mean, who doesn’t want to play a game that uses the power of your thoughts?

Nike+ SportWatch Adds GPS via TomTom

AirStash – Add a Flash Drive to Your iPad or iPhone (Sorta.)
How many times have you wanted to use a flash drive with your iPad or iPhone, but couldn’t? Usually, you end up emailing a document because you had no other way of transferring your information. This is really annoying, seeing as there are sometimes issues with email file transfers, and no Internet access at times.

Parrot Asteroid: Android-Powered Car Stereo
How smart is your car stereo? I’m happy that my stereo can interface with my iPhone and let me sort through my music efficiently. However, if you want something that does more than just play music and display the time, you might want to have a gander at what Parrot is cooking up with their Asteroid.

VoicePrints Turn Your Words Into Wall Art

VoicePrints Turn Your Words Into Wall Art
It seems like virtually anything can be turned into art. While the spoken word can be art in the form of poetry and song, it’s not often that it’s something that you can physically see. After all, a voice is something heard, not seen.

PopDrive Mirrored Hard Drive Makes Backing Up Files Worry-Free

PopDrive Mirrored Hard Drive Makes Backing Up Files Worry-Free
Ever had a hard drive crash? Such events can be disastrous, to say the least. Years of pictures, videos, music, and documents can all disappear in a flash. And unless you have some sort of backup in place, there is absolutely no way to get it all back.

iPhone-Controlled Mini Fridge Beer Cannon
When you’re watching the big game, or in the middle of a marathon gaming session, you don’t want to have to get up and go get yourself a cold one. Why? Because you’re lazy. Don’t be mistaken, I’m just as lazy as you are.

RuMe Cuff is a Stupid Wallet for Your Coffee Cup

RuMe Cuff is a Stupid Wallet for Your Coffee Cup
Sometimes convergence isn’t a good idea. You know those little cardboard things that go around your cup of coffee at Starbucks? They’re actually pretty ingenious if you think about it. I mean, not only do they function as a buffer between the hot cup and your hand, but they can be used as a form of advertisement.

Dongle Adds HDMI to iPhone and iPad

Dongle Adds HDMI to iPhone and iPad
HDMI output for the iPhone? Surely not! You’d think that something as basic as an HDMI output wouldn’t be a big deal for a gadget like the iPhone. I mean, in this world of HDTVs, many devices ship with such a port standard.

Nosedial Makes Calling From Your iPhone Nose-Friendly
Ever tried using your iPhone with gloves on? It doesn’t work very well. Believe me, I’ve tried. Yes, I also know that there are plenty of special gloves out there, and even ways to convert traditional gloves to work with touchscreens.

Octopus Battery Charges Your iPhone While Looking Weird

Octopus Battery Charges Your iPhone While Looking Weird
Sometimes I worry about designers. I mean, sometimes I’ll look at a product and wonder what need is being filled by this one. Once that is established, I’ll move on to trying to figure out why on Earth it was designed in the way it was.

BETA Shell dSLR Lens Case Protects Against the Elements and Clumsiness
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In this case you could say that a $55 case is worth $700 in replacement costs. That’s the idea behind these BETA Shell SLR lens cases at least.

Zipbuds Tangle-Resistant Earbuds Get a Makeover, Start Shipping

Zipbuds Tangle-Resistant Earbuds Get a Makeover, Start Shipping
It’s amazing how much a design can change in a year. Back in January, we showed you a different kind of earbud that promised to prevent tangles. This was a great idea, because tangled cords are the number 1 cause for destroyed earbuds* (due to the owner getting frustrated and just breaking them).

Porsche Bobsleigh Bring German Engineering to a Snowy Hill Near You
How would you like to buy yourself a Porsche for Christmas? No, I’m not talking about the racing wheel that we showed you yesterday. I’m talking about one that you can actually use to move you from point A to point B.
