Dragon Tides: Because The World Needed A Bruce Lee Board Game

Dragon Tides: Because The World Needed A Bruce Lee Board Game
For me, the theme is a big part of what attracts me to a board game. Yes, I love good mechanics and I’ll gladly play Carcassone all day long, but building a cluster of tiny cities surrounded by roads that go nowhere and inaccessible churches does take me out of the game a bit.

Gummi Bear Candle Melts to Reveal Its Skeletal Insides

Gummi Bear Candle Melts to Reveal Its Skeletal Insides
First, it was a cat. Now it’s gummi bears. But these huge 3-pound gummi bear candles are not what they seem. They’re undeniably cute, cuddly even if they weren’t made from wax. But the horror sets in once it starts burning…

Impact Winter: Can You Survive 30 Days of Snow and Good Voice Acting?

Impact Winter: Can You Survive 30 Days of Snow and Good Voice Acting?
Eight years ago (in the game Impact Winter’s setting), an asteroid struck Manitoba. That was indeed bad, but the worst part was the amount of debris it kicked up into the atmosphere. As a result, the oceans froze over, the skies darkened, and snow covered everything.

Human Resources RTS Has Giant Robot and Monster Battles

Human Resources RTS Has Giant Robot and Monster Battles
I rarely get excited about Kickstarter projects. They often don’t make it (either with or without funding) and therefore can be a bit of a letdown. It’s even rarer that I get excited about video games or movies that hit Kickstarter seeking money, but I am very excited about Human Resources.

Black Hat Oculus: A Creative, Co-op VR Infilitration Game

Black Hat Oculus: A Creative, Co-op VR Infilitration Game
One of the coolest features of the Nintendo Wii U was the fact that the Gamepad allows for game designers to give information to one player without giving it to the others. The Oculus Rift can do this, but to a much greater extreme.

Notion Tells You What’s Going on at Home from Afar

Notion Tells You What’s Going on at Home from Afar
If you are away from home a lot and want to keep an eye on your house, you might get a security alarm installed. The problem with those alarms is all they do is alarm when a window breaks or a door opens, they are far from smart.

King Down: The King of the Hill Prequel to Chess

King Down: The King of the Hill Prequel to Chess
Who are these two armies, standing in their proud and identical formations before battle? Why are they fighting a chromatically driven battle? What pre-battle maneuver gave the white king the opportunity to get the first move?

Seatylock Combines a Bicycle Seat and a Bike Lock

Seatylock Combines a Bicycle Seat and a Bike Lock
Do you forget to take your bike lock with you when you ride? Maybe you don’t forget, but it’s a hassle to carry one all the time. Well, Seatylock is a clever new bicycle lock that will always be with you.

Totem: A VR Headset With Forward Facing Cameras

Totem: A VR Headset With Forward Facing Cameras
This is Totem, yet another VR headset on Kickstarter. I’m posting about it, however, because it can do some really cool things that other VR goggles we’ve seen can’t, and I don’t think the developers have even realized all of the potential they have with this hardware design yet.

Domeni Co: Luxury Watches For People Who Can’t Afford Luxury Watches

Domeni Co: Luxury Watches For People Who Can’t Afford Luxury Watches
Watches can be really cool, and a good watch can elevate a guy’s attire from good to gooooooood. The problem is that really cool ones often , like the Maurice LaCroix Roue Carrée Seconde (my personal favorite), often have really uncool price tags (like the Roue Carree’s $9,900 price tag).

Fresh Air Plus: Now You Can Poop, Minus the Stink

Fresh Air Plus: Now You Can Poop, Minus the Stink
Poop stinks. Most of the time, it’s tolerable – it is your own poop, after all. But sometimes, it downright stinks and makes you want to gag. Maybe it was indigestion, or maybe it was something you ate.

Tatooine Sand Watches: Because a Sundial Won’t Work There

Tatooine Sand Watches: Because a Sundial Won’t Work There
Own a piece of Star Wars history on your wrist with this beautiful watch. It contains sand from the Tunisian set where the Tatooine scenes were filmed.

“Mark of War” Is A Computer Wargame That Costs Less Than One Tiny, Poorly-Painted Mini

“Mark of War” Is A Computer Wargame That Costs Less Than One Tiny, Poorly-Painted Mini
The last time renowned Brit geek Gav Thorpe designed a fantasy wargame, it was called “Warhammer Fantasy Battles.” It takes a time commitment roughly equivalent to a full time job, and it costs an arm and three warp-mutated legs.

Scribble Pen: Real or Not?

Scribble Pen: Real or Not?
For many, Scribble seemed like the best thing since sliced bread. It was a pen that could copy the color of absolutely anything simply by pushing its built-in scanner against an object. The pen could then be used to write in the scanned color on paper or on a tablet, since a stylus and ink pen version were in the works.

FIXD Tells You What Those Dash Lights in Your Car Mean

FIXD Tells You What Those Dash Lights in Your Car Mean
If you have ever had the check engine light come on in your car, you know how uncomfortable that can be. In part of your brain, you think it’s nothing but a way for the dealer to make some money on service, and you keep driving.

Butterup Knife Spreads Cold Butter Easily

Butterup Knife Spreads Cold Butter Easily
I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest first world problems is that cold butter does not spread easily. The only solution is to either leave the butter out until it is soft or to grate it, which is a pain.
