We can all agree getting up each morning to go to work really sucks. Some people have a harder time getting up than others. If you are of the sort who needs a little extra help, the Sensorwake Trio might be the ticket.
61 years ago, the Frisbee was born. That was when Wham-O Inc. acquired the rights to the flying disc and officially named it. Now, the company says it’s reinvented the Frisbee. This new version looks wobbly and warped.
Way back in the day, I went straight from high school to college into a medical program that saw me going from a broke high-school student to 19-year-old with an actual career making good money. The very first thing I bought with my very first paycheck was a 3DO game system and a copy of Myst.
If you’re a fan of PC or console racing simulation games like rFactor and you want to make the game as realistic as possible, you need a good racing wheel and pedals. More specifically, you need a force feedback racing wheel, so you can feel what your VR car is doing.
The GOGO lantern is a new portable lamp that’s currently being funded over on Kickstarter. The product is just what it sounds like, a lantern that you can use on the go or at home. The GOGO has some cool features, with the big one being a solar panel on top to charge the lantern when you are out in the field.
Being that I am from Texas, all my childhood memories of the beach revolve around Galveston, Texas. That means Gulf of Mexico water as dirty as a mud puddle, and sand roughly the temperature of the surface of the Sun.
If you are looking for a cool new night light or mood light, check out Glowscenes. It is a unique accent light that is inspired by nature, and designed to deliver relaxation and calm.
Guido Bonelli created these cool lights, and you can find them on Kickstarter.
Hanging pictures is a huge pain in the rear. I never seem to get them level or centered in the spot where I want them. This results in lots of holes in my walls. The Absolut Hangsmart is a new picture hanger that aims to make it easy to mount your pictures and art on the wall and get it perfectly level every time.
My Mamaw (that’s grandmother for you yankees out there) used to knit all the time. She was big on making blankets with yarn that had enough open space to be terrible at keeping you warm, and were itchy enough to drive you mad.
Do you like pixel art? Did you know that when pixels are turned into their 3-dimensional equivalents, they’re called “voxels?” Well now you do. Pretty soon, you’ll have a fun new way to build your own personal voxel art sculptures, thanks to PIXIO.
The only thing I really know about coffee or espresso is that I don’t like the way any of it tastes. My daily caffeine intake is taken entirely in the form of Dr. Pepper. If you are a fan of espresso you might have noticed that you can’t stir sugar into your brew with a normal spoon without jacking up the layer of foam on top.
A new board game has turned up on Kickstarter and it looks pretty awesome. If you liked Mechwarrior back in the day, just go ahead and get out your credit card. The game is called GKR: Heavy Hitters and it’s about robots trying to destroy each other in abandoned cities.
I don’t know anything about wine other than what I have seen on TV. I learned there that wine snobs like to sniff it, swish it, and sometimes spit it out. I don’t even know if that is true or not, but it must be with this new product that landed on Kickstarter called the Wine Glass Mask.
Opening a beer is something that my uncle took pleasure in grossing me out with. He would crack them open using his teeth and I was always sure his teeth would shatter. He literally had a steel plate in his head, and once pulled his own impacted tooth with pliers – and it was the wrong tooth.
I’d wager the first exposure that many of us had to video games that gave you a workout was with the Nintendo Wii. Everyone who played that boxing game woke up sore the next morning and had to remember why.
There have been many times of late when I have sat back and wondered what Apple was thinking. Sometimes I feel like Tim Cook is sitting in his office thinking up what he can do to mess with Apple fans today.
