Check out this ridiculous computer case made entirely out of cooling fans. I’m assuming the builder of this case was frustrated with their tricked-out system overheating all the time.
The case was assembled from 66 individual cooling fans, keeping the system icy cold all the time.
With football season in full swing, why not arrive at your next tailgate party in style? This ride-on cooler not only speeds you along to your destination, it’ll keep your drinks and snacks nice and chilled on the way.
These amazing micro robots measure in at under 1/4 cubic inch in volume, and weigh less than an ounce. Sandia National Labs has developed these tiny automatons which operate on the power of three watch batteries.
I’ve written about so many modern digital watches that sacrifice ease of use for cool design (I’m talking to you, TokyoFlash). So it’s a breath of fresh air to see a modern digital that manages to balance looks with ease-of-use.
I’m absolutely in love with these cool metal robot watches. Not only can you wear them on your wrist, they pop out of the band to become mini-clocks you can put on your desk.
Each of the little guys has flexible metal arms, and a little pair of “headphones” on top of his head that come in handy if you want to hang it from a pendant or a keychain.

This nifty airplane-inspired desktop fan will help you keep your cool while you’re slaving away surfing the Internet.
The fan plugs into your USB port, and has a soft “propeller” that’s designed to not slice your digits off if you happen to get in its way.
You better act quick if you want this great piece of Nintendo nostalgia for your house. It’s a Super Mario Brothers ceiling fan, circa 1988, that I found over on eBay.
I know Nintendo merchandised the hell out of this franchise, but a Super Mario ceiling fan?
Here’s a cool way to keep cool at your desk.
These retro USB fans from Willstyle look like some sort of cage fan from an old computer, but they’re all new. They have a substantial ball-bearing fan motor, and can really crank out some wind.
Sometimes, I just wish I lived in Asia so I could easily get my hands on the great gadgets they crank out. My favorite find of the day has to be this Korean desktop cooler that looks like a polar bear.
For some reason, this mini desk refrigerator makes me think of the spaceship from Mork and Mindy. [I’m (carbon) dating myself, I know.] Actually, it’s supposed to be a giant egg. Come to think of it, so was Mork’s ship.
As great as the Xbox 360 is, there’s no question that its thermal control issues are its biggest flaw. Since day one, there have been rampant problems with consoles overheating, with some reports claiming as much as a 30% failure rate.
ThinkGeek is at it again. This time they’re offering up a fan which can load up animated GIF files from your computer and display them in full color on the blades of the fan.
