Before the invention of timepieces, our ancestors aligned their schedules with the rising and setting of the Sun. Mammoth hunting when the Sun goes up, then chill at Hairy Guy 34’s cave when the Sun goes down.
There’s always something cool about any gadget that lights up like a Christmas tree. Whether you like it or not, they will grab your attention. This new JBL speaker is no exception. It looks like a great add-on for impromptu house parties.
I really love having Philips Hue lights in my house. If I could, I’d do the whole house, but for now, I’ve only got my media room/arcade/mancave and my foyer done up with the colorful remote-controlled LED bulbs.
Adafruit continues its wonderful marketing campaign with another fun and functional gadget that you can build using the company’s products. This time it’s a wristwatch that uses LEDs to display the time or point North or to a preset destination.
Programmer and avid gamer Saar Drimer aka boldport wanted to make a special wedding gift for his friend Mike, who’s also a gamer and a computer scientist. Not only did he succeed in making a great gift with his own hands, the tool he used to design the gift was also his creation.
Watchmaker Click is making a name for itself by incorporating mechanisms from gadgets or electronics into their wristwatches. We saw that with the Keypad, the Switch and the Wallswitch. The company’s newest watch is no different; it looks and works just like an arcade button.

Pledge to this campaign on Indiegogo if you want to wear a watch on your fingers. It’s called the Ring Clock, and uses 144 ultra-thin mono-color LEDs to display the time when you twist it. It’s a ring.
If you’ve been following Technabob for any period of time, you know we’re big fans of Tokyoflash and their unusual watches. Now, here’s a Tokyoflash watch that is kind of a big fan itself. That is, it’s based on the fan blades of a turbofan engine.
You probably don’t give much thought about the artificial light that’s available around you. But hundreds of millions of people don’t have access to electricity; many of these people use kerosene lamps at night, which are not only costly but harmful.
A few months back, I outfitted my man-cave/media room with Philips Hue LED light bulbs in all of my recessed ceiling fixtures. This has given me the ability to set different moods in the room, and even automatically dim the lights to a warm, theater-like quality when I want to go watch a movie.
An LED Matrix Display is a very affordable and versatile tool for showing information. But Stephen Wylie and Stacy Devino made an even more affordable and useful version of it. They call it LEDgoes, a display that you can expand by snapping modules together like LEGO.
There’s a reason why restaurant food usually tastes a lot better than home-cooked food: the former is usually loaded with lots of salt!
Unless you’ve got super-sensitive taste buds, you won’t be able to tell just how much salt you’re cramming into your mouth because all you can process is how good the food tastes.
I really love my Philips Hue wireless bulbs. In fact, I’ve got my entire man cave/home theater/game room outfitted with the colorful, remote-controlled lights in my ceiling fixtures. But one thing that’s bugged me about the lamps so far is that they only come as reflector bulbs.
Who doesn’t like having a watch that looks like it’s from the future? Well I sure would like to have one, and I have to say that the Kisai Neutron from Tokyoflash would be perfect for humans and Cylons alike.
