Building on some of the same basic principles that eventually gave way to the cassette recorder, this kit lets you transcribe the sound of your voice into magnetic charges and play them back with a swipe of your hand.
If you’re in the market for a new digital watch and want something a little out of the ordinary, you might want to check out the latest timepiece from Nooka – the ZAZ. Now, I’m not a big fan of the name, which sounds like some sort of tacky accessory store from the 1980s, but the watch’s cool modern style belies its rather silly name.
I only wish I had a big brother like this guy. Not only does he have mad video game modding skills, but Pkmnjunky7 thought enough of his little brother to make him this amazing Daft Punk helmet that looks just like the one Thomas Bangalter has been known to wear on stage.
I always dreamed of the day that I could have my own tiny little robotic army that hangs out on my desktop to do my bidding. While these little robot clock dudes don’t exactly do all of my bidding, they do tell the time, and they look good doing it.
Why would you want to make a PC that looked exactly like a kitchen appliance? Dunno, maybe just so you could say it could be done?
Czeck modder Zbyšek built his Project MiniCooker PC that’s a dead ringer for his full-size cooktop, complete with blue LED “gas burners” that look just like the real deal.
Give your robot a hand (or two) with these incredibly complex mechanical digits from Japan’s Crafthouse. Instead of the typical grippers you might find on a hobby robot, Crafthouse’s servo-controlled GOD HANDs give miniature robots a set of flexible digits that work much like their human masters’ appendages.
With all of the buzz on the ‘nets about Apple’s upcoming tablet Mac, I think I’ve got the scoop on the original Mac Tablet.
Yvan of Switzerland’s Cosm!k’ Art Deco Team built his Tablet Mac into a coffee table.
There’s nothing to dislike about a replica Halo sword. Even without sharpened points, this baby looks 100% badass. There is nothing unbadass about it. In fact, this sword is so very bad that it doesn’t even have anything over the handle to protect unhardened wussy hands from the sharp corners of death metal connecting those blades.
These amazing pop culture art works feature familiar movie and TV characters hand-sculpted from reclaimed metal.
The guys over at Art From Steel create over 450 different creatures out of recycled steel, ranging from Wall-E to the Terminator to Gundam and everyone in between.
When I saw these Batman-inspired cufflinks, I thought, man! Too bad I have no reason to buy cufflinks for anyone. Platinum/rhodium cufflinks are nice enough, but when they mark you out as a regular dude operating at super capacity, you know they’re awesome.
I just love the look of these luscious retro-modern headphones. Named for the rotational speed of classic vinyl records, these Eskuché 33 and 1/3 headphones should be great for listening to any music, whether recorded on a vinyl platter or in the digital ether.
Remember BuckyBalls? You know, those amazing tiny little rare earth magnets that you can sculpt into all sorts of artistic (and not so artistic) creations? How’d you like a chance to win some of these cool metallic playthings for yourself?
These modern digital watches don’t use LED or LCD screens. Instead, they use E-Ink screens to tell the time.
Phosphor’s E-Ink watches have a bold modern design, and feature highly readable electrostatic displays.
The Phosphor DH01, DH02 and DH03 all feature a display that combines a dramatic modern numeric display for minutes, along with a simulated analog dial for the current hour.
Here’s the perfect fashion accessory for Bioshock fans.
Technabob reader Matthew Borgatti (aka “M@”) created this intricately detailed bronze belt buckle which bears the inimitable Art Deco logo from the classic underwater shooter. M@ started out by having a wax mold carved on TechShop’s Tormach CNC.
Looking to make a real impression the next time you have guests over? This over-the-top LED shower head will definitely get their attention when they go to hop in the shower.
Crosswater’s RIO shower head is loaded with 96 computer-controlled LEDs in red, green and blue clusters so they can be mixed to create just about any color in the spectrum.
You’ll have to rely on your keen powers of observation to figure out the current time on this new watch from Storm.
The limited-edition Storm Synth conceals the current time by taking standard hour hand, minute hand, second hand equation and multiplying it by three.
