Don’t worry, it’s not the disembodied head of a real person, although it definitely looks like one. This humanoid head is smarter than it looks, because it can actually read simplified music scores before singing it to you (or your child.)
Facebook has taken over a lot of lives, and I mean that literally, in the past few years since it’s quick rise to fame. It’s not uncommon to find people feverishly posting photos via mobile and updating their status every other minute based on every single whim and thought that enters their head.
Fancy a free serving or two of Jell-O? Feeling down in the dumps and firing away tweets laced with “:(” at the beginning, middle, or end?
If you answered “yes” to both, then you might just receive a tweet from @JelloMoodMeter with a link to claim your free pudding.
Off-days are unavoidable. If you find that you (or someone else you know) has been down in the dumps lately, then it’s time for some serious cheering up.
If you were able to get one of those Talking Heart Mice from a few years back, then all you need to do is give it a click or two to remind yourself that, hey, someone (or rather, something) still loves you.
All the cars lining up the streets don’t make for a very pretty sight. The recent wave of erratic weather has also convinced me to start living a greener and more eco-friendly life, but you can’t really take your bike or electric car with you while you’re traveling – or can you?
You might recall those geeky circuit board ties we featured earlier by Enlighted Designs that had several LED lights running through the entire design to give them a more authentic look.
Well, the woman behind all that illuminated clothing, Janet Hansen, is at it again, but this time, she’s made something for the ladies: the Snowball Mini Dress.
Men, here’s a quick tip: ask women any question, just don’t ask her what her weight is. (Unless, of course, you want to be bombarded with a hundred and one follow-up questions as to why you’re asking her and why you’re so mean and insensitive and if you think she’s fat and all that..)
Ask any woman that question and you can expect any one or a combination of these responses:
“Are you insane?”
Puzzled look followed by a long silence.
Scrunched-up nose and a dismissive shrug.
“Sour milk? Gross!”
I gave up on fabric placemats after having my sister and her young kids over for dinner one evening. While I adore my nieces and nephews, they are the messiest eaters on the planet and my placemats just had to go to the bin after their visit, since the stains were so stubborn and wouldn’t come off, even after several washes.
Music lovers and enthusiasts will remember the Roland TR-808, that was actually one of the first programmable drum machines ever made.
It was introduced in the early 1980s, which actually makes it several years older than I am.
Don’t you ever wonder how come most children’s nursery rhymes end in some sort of tragedy? There was Jack who broke his crown, and Humpty Dumpty who fell apart because he had a great fall. Then there was the baby who was rocking-a-bye in the treetop, when the wind blows and drops both baby and cradle.
Nothing is a more annoying or uglier looking sight than all those little holes in the wall after removing the pins you used to tack up posters, reminders, and other sorts of similar paper paraphernalia. Teeny, tiny holes are okay; but when they’re pretty obvious and staring back at you like black, beady eyes, then it’s, er, not.
A lot of people think that the bigger something is, the better. While I don’t necessarily agree, one thing “big” is definitely good for is grabbing people’s attention. I mean, would you have taken a second look at this Jack Sparrow Statue or Honeycomb Statue if it were only a feet tall?
When it comes to fashion, geekiness is not wanting. And when it comes to earrings, why, it’s practically overflowing. Cases in point? The Portal Earrings which make for a good illusion, the White Circuit Earrings that are as geeky as earrings can get, and the Tiny Knife Earrings that can literally cut through you.
