While everyone is all abuzz about the new Kindle 2 Wireless E-Book Reader, we at Technabob still like to occasionally crack open an old-fangled hardcover or paperback. At least we now have a nice way to keep track of what page we left off on.
How much would you pay for a 0.7 watt portable speaker that’s more cute than functional? $76.16!?! How the hell did you know that the Yuen’to Music Ball cost that much? Get outta here!
I mean, you probably already know that it has a 3.5
I’ve been doing my usual window shopping and thought I’d share some of the funny geek shirts I saw at Snorg Tees. They’re all made of “100% Super Soft” cotton and are priced at $19 each.
The Chemist shirt would have been much better if the ladies in it looked better.
Now there’s a sad geek shirt.
At last! An EBOTDTM in your hands! In you’re barbarians’ hands! You want to test it out but it’s 3 am, and you’ve been grinding far longer than a techno DJ’s set. Should you walk away from your PC and crawl to bed?
Spotted on the streets of Lyon, France, where artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino transformed an old phone booth into an aquarium – complete with fish. Unfortunately, all of the calls just sound like blurble-blurble-blurble.
Knitter/Yes Woman teriyakimoto‘s friend wanted a “knitted gas mask + hat to wear for winter bike trips to work”. I think it’s safe to say that this friend has quite specific needs. Teriyakimoto obliged, braving the depths of absurdity and the fact that she had no pattern to work with, and returned from her knitting basement with her awesome creation, which was already attached to her friend’s head.
Since she had no pattern, teriyakimoto had to measure her friend’s face to ensure that the mask and hat would fit snugly; they won’t save him from a biochemical attack, but they could at least keep his face warm.
The mask is attached to the hat with velcro (the black stripes on top) so he can easily remove it if he runs into bullies, or if he observes that he can’t breathe well while wearing the mask.
If you were campaigning to put an end to violence, would you threaten to beat up your audience to drive home that “violence = badong”? No? That’s because you’re not a genius. From now on let such sublime logic be known as WWBGD – What Would Bill Gates Do?
The fifth version of world-renowned artist Wim Delvoye’s sculpture is now on exhibit at the Université du Québec à Montréal’s gallery up until Valentine’s Day. Why should we care? Because his sculpture is actually a machine.
Tens of thousands of years from now when robots and ninjas rule the earth, they will find all sorts of man-made stuff which will surely baffle them, such as toilets. And poo. Maybe archeologist ninjas and robo-historians will be scratching their heads when they find this strange collection of shaped stones in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Upon closer inspection, the robo-historians will snap with their metallic fingers, and the archaelogist ninjas will say, “A-ha!”
Talk about making something from nothing: a sewage plant in Japan’s Nagano prefecture recently began mining gold from wastewater. The sewage plant is located in the town of Suwa, where there are “numerous precision machining companies, metal plating facilities and hot springs”, which account for the relatively high concentration of gold in the wastewater that is processed at the plant.
Explosive modder Matt purchased some decommissioned test grenades and decided that it would make for a great MP3 player shell. So does it? Yesno.
Matt stuffed the innards of a 2GB Sansa Clip into the grenade.
