Livia Claims to Stop Period Pains with Electricity

Livia Claims to Stop Period Pains with Electricity
While I can’t speak from direct experience, period pains can be pretty terrible. That said, we guys feel the pain too, since the ladies often give us hell when Aunt Flo is visiting. Some women take painkillers to deal with it, but maybe there is a better way.

NexDock Laptop Dock: Atrix Reloaded

NexDock Laptop Dock: Atrix Reloaded
Last week we checked out Ben Heck’s keyboard and display in a box that he made to test dev kits. I mentioned that it should be a gadget that already exists. It turns out it does, and it’s called the NexDock. The NexDock is basically the old Motorola Atrix lapdock except you connect devices to it via its mini-HDMI and USB ports, which means it works with a variety of smartphones, single-board computers, PCs-on-a-stick and media streaming devices.

Rockit 88 CPU Delid Tool: Pop It ‘Cause It’s Hot
In the past couple of years, a number of PC enthusiasts have been removing the lid – aka the Integrated Heat Spreader – on their Intel CPUs to replace the stock thermal paste with third party ones that do a better job of siphoning heat off of the chip itself.

This Seashell Lets You Hear the Radio, Not the Ocean
Normally, people hold seashells up to their ear to hear the ocean, but that’s not the case with these seashells. To celebrate 90 years of radio in Japan, Japanese radio station BayFM has collected 100 sazae shells and outfitted them with radio equipment.

Somm Wine Dispenser is a Wino’s Dream
There are wine drinkers and then there are WINE drinkers. The former will have a glass of chardonnay every now and then, while the latter worries that their wine will go bad and wants it chilled and ready for action.

R2-D2 Meets Luxo, Jr.
What do you get when you merge R2-D2 with Pixar’s anthropomorphic lamp mascot, Luxo, Jr? You get the most bare-bones version of R2-D2 that anyone has ever seen. And it’s a lamp! R2 is looking truly anorexic.

Ryobi Connected Garage Door Opener Offers Modular Add-ons

Ryobi Connected Garage Door Opener Offers Modular Add-ons
I don’t actually use my garage for parking my cars. It’s more of a space filled with power tools for woodworking and a bunch of boxes that have been sitting in the same place for at least three years.

Stratasys J750 Full-Color Multi-material 3D Printer: Protoshop

Stratasys J750 Full-Color Multi-material 3D Printer: Protoshop
There are many 3D printers that can mix filaments of different colors, as well as those that can print with two or three different types of filament at once. But Stratasys’ new J750 PolyJet 3D printer raises the bar in both aspects, able to print over 360,000 colors and up to six different materials at once. The J750’s goal is simple: to put the “rapid” in rapid prototyping.

Set and forget cameras like action cameras and dash cams expanded the applications of video cameras. But action cameras can be pricey, while dash cams are not versatile. If you’re looking for a cheap, user-friendly and open source alternative, check out Armstart’s WiCAM. WiCAM measures about 1.3″x

Ben Heck’s Lunch Box Dev Board Testing Kit Holds Pis and Bones

Ben Heck’s Lunch Box Dev Board Testing Kit Holds Pis and Bones
Master modder Ben Heck wanted to have a portable and compact dumb terminal to test single board computers, development boards and whatever else you may call them. It sounds like a simple contraption – it’s basically a keyboard and a screen with an HDMI input – but since Ben decided to reuse old devices and materials it ended up being a somewhat complicated project. Ben used the screen and driver board from a Motorola Atrix laptop dock, and stuffed those and the other electronics into an old medical toolbox.

Slash 3D Resin Printer Cranks out Eiffel Towers in a Jiffy
3D printers are cool because you can make stuff with them that you can actually hold and touch. I assume that the home or office of everyone who owns a 3D printer has stacks of tiny plastic whatnots that serve no purpose.

ThinkGeek Useless Light Switch: Home Automation, Decepticon Style
April Fools’ Day is ThinkGeek’s Christmas. The company once again prepared several fake products for our amusement, with the best one being the Useless Light Switch.

This Fork Zaps Your Tongue with Electricity to Simulate Salt
If you have ever stuck a 9-volt battery on your tongue, you know that the sensation it creates almost seems salty. That is what this fork is all about. The Electric Flavoring Fork uses the same principle to simulate the taste of salt for those who can’t have salt, but love the taste.

Kuvée Smart Wine Bottle Keeps Wine Fresh for a Month

Kuvée Smart Wine Bottle Keeps Wine Fresh for a Month
I’m not a drinker, I have poor impulse control as it is. There are plenty of folks out there that like a glass or two every night, but wine goes bad once you open it. If you like to have a glass here and there and don’t want to pour wine you don’t finish, Kuvée might be for you. This thing is a fancy wine bottle that consists of two parts.
