With Halloween just a couple of days away, it’s nice to know that geeks are feeling festive too. The guys over at Nova Lasers put together this awesome Jack-O-Lantern, illuminated by colored lasers.
Candles? We don’t need no stinking candles!
While this strange pink device might look like some sort of modern hair dryer, it’s not. In fact, the Avurt IM-5 is all about keeping people out of your face, not in it.
You see, the IM-5 is actually a high-tech update to the old can of pepper spray.
The guys from online shop MyVirtualZone just tipped me off to these little playthings. The appropriately named Laser Top has a little laser beam that projects out of the side as you spin it around.
While I actually think the effect of the LEDs and the laser are pretty cool when its spinning, I think that the music that plays as it goes is about as ridiculous as it gets.
Have an old Macintosh G4 Cube computer lying around? Why not transform it into an enclosure for a modern Mac Mini?
Like the abandoned shell of a hermit crab, Mac enthusiast Rich Willis removed the innards of the old G4 cube and filled its guts with his Mac Mini as well as some add-ons.
This wireless presentation controller lets you remotely operate your Windows computer using a similar interaction to that of the Nintendo Wii-mote controller.
The ZMotion Wireless Space Presenter looks like a super-slim remote control, but does a lot more than just flip pages in a PowerPoint deck.
A couple of weeks back, I told you about a little clock that projects the time using what was purported to be a laser beam. Turns out that one just used a lame red LED, and could barely muster an image from more than a couple of feet away.
This handheld gadget lets you project the current time onto almost any surface.
The Laser Clock uses a combination of LCD and laser technology to work its magic. The battery-powered laser projector is small enough to fit in your pocket, and includes a handy keychain fob too.
German designer Linda Kostowski designed these wacky wearable artworks that look like watches, but they’re really totally phony.
Cut from leather, laser-embellished, then hand-assembled to look like wristwatches, realfakewatches will set you up with a timepiece that says, “who cares what time it is?”
This wondrous little auto gadget uses GPS satellite tracking, radar and laser detection technologies to alert you to the presence of speed traps and traffic cameras.
The PogoAlert features a compact 1.8-inch LCD screen that mounts on your car’s dashboard or windshield, and lets you know when you’re approaching a speed trap or traffic camera.
Sick of the same four white walls? This new projection gadget might just help you make that room a little less drab. The Laser Stars Projector will take a plain white room and turn it into a twinkling, ever changing starfield (assuming you turn off the lights.)
Is your new HP LaserJet making funny noises? Before you call tech support, you might want to double check that there aren’t any rodentia living in the box.
A chain e-mail has been circulating with a claim that someone found a mouse living inside their laser toner cartridge.
Samsung’s upcoming CLP-300 and CLP-300N claim to be the world’s smallest and lightest color laser printers.
The printers measure just 15.4″ W x 13.5″ D x 10.4″ H and weigh less than 30 lbs each. They feature a unique toner system which minimizes the size of the printer as well as cutting down on the noise of mechanical toner systems in competitors’ printers.
