Elite750 Email Club Will Make You Poorer But Its Makers Richer

Elite750 Email Club Will Make You Poorer But Its Makers Richer
My dad recently signed up for a country club membership which cost him a whole lot of money and a whole lot of time. I don’t really get the point of club memberships because for one, we don’t really use the facilities much, and two, the food there isn’t so great.

Rare Zippo Lighter Fires Bullets, Not Fire

Rare Zippo Lighter Fires Bullets, Not Fire
This isn’t an official Zippo-issued lighter (because I doubt it would be legal to do so) but it’s way cooler than any other standard-issue they’ve released thus far. Roll the flint wheel on this lighter but make sure your face is a safe distance away from the barrel unless you want a mini bullet to hit you straight in the face.

Rubik’s Stress Cube is Unsolveable, Still Won’t Stress You Out Like a Real Rubik’s Cube

Rubik’s Stress Cube is Unsolveable, Still Won’t Stress You Out Like a Real Rubik’s Cube
I’m not very good at figuring out Rubik’s Cubes. I did go to University with a guy who would twist and fiddle with 3×3, 4×4, even 5×5 Rubik’s Cubes, and can be done with the whole thing in a matter of a few minutes.

Flying Piggy Banks Accept All Currency

Flying Piggy Banks Accept All Currency
When I was much younger, my mom gave me a tin can with a coin slot on top. She instructed me to drop any spare change I had to save up for a rainy day. I examined the can up close and saw that it was actually a free piggy bank tin that was being given away by a local bank.

USB Pixel Mouse: Meta Mouse

USB Pixel Mouse: Meta Mouse
Last week, we saw computer mice in various species with removable tails that doubled as USB dongles. Some pretty creative people also decided to use them in a way that they weren’t meant to be used: as belt buckles.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Spend Millions for New Toilets

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Spend Millions for New Toilets
It might sound a bit weird at first, maybe even eccentric, but once you discover the reason why, then it will all make sense. I’m talking about the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s recent call to have the toilet reinvented.

Eco-Friendly Sprout Watches Are Bright, Colorful, and Biodegradable

Eco-Friendly Sprout Watches Are Bright, Colorful, and Biodegradable
I consider it extremely wasteful when parents allow their kids to just discard their old stuff even though they’re still working or in good condition, just because they’ve gotten tired of it or bored with its look.

Waste Toothpaste No More With the SavePaste Toothpaste Tube

Waste Toothpaste No More With the SavePaste Toothpaste Tube
Don’t you just hate it when you’re at the last few milliliters of your tube of toothpaste and you just can’t seem to get that last bits of toothpaste out, no matter how hard you try to press or squeeze or twist that tiny tube around?

Anpanman Camera Gives Kids a Head Start in Digital Photography

Anpanman Camera Gives Kids a Head Start in Digital Photography
The things that kids do for entertainment these days is completely different from what we did as kids in my generation. We didn’t have a whole lot of handheld video games, although we had our imaginations and our Super NES and that was enough.

There Are Actually Full-Blown Counterfeit Apple Stores Now In China? Seriously?

There Are Actually Full-Blown Counterfeit Apple Stores Now In China? Seriously?
I’ve seen a whole range of products from apparel to electronics to makeup of the counterfeit kind all bearing the markings of the Sleeping Giant that has already inevitably awakened. I appreciate the original “Made in China” stuff that I’ve got though, because you can get some high-quality stuff from there, if you know where to look and if you know who to trust.

Pose Camera Case for the Vain and the Beautiful

Pose Camera Case for the Vain and the Beautiful
There have been moments in my life when all I wanted to do is take a photo of a wonderful scene – but with me in it. I normally don’t bring a tripod around with me, so the perfect photo opportunity goes bye-bye when the place I’m in also happens to be semi-deserted.

White Circuit Earrings Let You Flaunt Your Inner Geek

White Circuit Earrings Let You Flaunt Your Inner Geek
Last week, we saw how girls can show off their gamer sides by putting on some gamer necklaces by Deadly Pretty Design. As a girl who’s really into video games herself, I can say that I definitely can’t wait to get my hands on one of those necklaces.

Stormtrooper Plans to Walk All Across Australia for Charity

Stormtrooper Plans to Walk All Across Australia for Charity
Sometimes, people do pretty weird and crazy things for no good reason. However, Paul French from the land down under has a good reason for donning his Stormtrooper suit every day because he’s doing it for charity.

Cool Down With Thanko’s USB-Powered Clip-on Fan Coolers

Cool Down With Thanko’s USB-Powered Clip-on Fan Coolers
When I first saw these USB fans by Thanko, I almost wished that I were a man who regularly wore suits and ties to work so that I would have something to clip them on. Almost.

Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera Shoots Pictures, Not People

Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera Shoots Pictures, Not People
Rollei’s Bullet HD Action Camera sort of reminds me of that 1938 revolver that shot a picture when you pulled the trigger. I wouldn’t want to be the person who’s picture was being taken with that thing, since, you know, it would probably be my last and all.

Computer Mice Grow Tails With Elecom’s Oppopet Mouse

Computer Mice Grow Tails With Elecom’s Oppopet Mouse
It’s not every day that you chance upon a mouse with a tail. I’m not talking about that huge, mangy thing running around in the darkest corners of your attic though. Rather, I’m talking about none other than that little clicker that you’ve got beside your keyboard or laptop.
