Infinity Digital Watch: Bye, Bye LED, Hello OLED!

Infinity Digital Watch: Bye, Bye LED, Hello OLED!
Despite their bright, energy-efficient displays, OLED (organic light emitting diode) timepieces are still be few and far between. So I was pleased to see another new watch jump on the OLED bandwagon. The Infinity Apus Dark Force digital watch features a luminescent blue OLED screen, which really pops out from the stainless and black backdrop.

Jeremy Mayer’S Typewriter Robots Will Blow Your Mind

Jeremy Mayer’S Typewriter Robots Will Blow Your Mind
It’s not that I haven’t seen robotic sculptures before, but I can say with confidence that I’ve never seen any as intricate as Jeremy Mayer’s incredible typewriter robots. Mayer builds his amazingly detailed sculptural creations entirely from parts found on old typewriters.

Hand Grenade Mouse Mod: Don’T Pull the Pin!

Hand Grenade Mouse Mod: Don’T Pull the Pin!
I don’t know if I’d feel really comfortable putting my hand on this mouse, given the fact that it started its life as a device designed to blow off limbs. Still, assuming the explosives have been thoroughly scrubbed from the innards of the old grenade casing, I suppose you’d look mighty macho controlling your computer with one of these bad boys.

Rainbow Star LED Lamps Add a Splash of Color to Your Room

Rainbow Star LED Lamps Add a Splash of Color to Your Room
I was digging around looking for something totally unrelated today, when I came across these nifty color-changing LED lamps from Lumenworks. Rainbow Star lamps are minimal, modern lighting fixtures, which can be set to any of 7 different colors.

The Neocube is a Magnetic Puzzle O’ Fun

The Neocube is a Magnetic Puzzle O’ Fun
The NeoCube starts out as a cube made of super-magnetic balls that’s billed as “literally a puzzle with billions of solutions.” Here’s the good news: There are no right answers, just a whole heap o’ magnetic mayhem to be had.

Formula One Race Car USB Memory: Vroom, Vroom

Formula One Race Car USB Memory: Vroom, Vroom
Unlike a real race car, you really don’t want to see this one hit the wall and blow up in a fiery crash. That’s because this one could be holding all of your precious digital files.

Robot Lamp Says: Light My Shiny Metal Ass

Robot Lamp Says: Light My Shiny Metal Ass
Affirmative. Yes, affirmative. I must have a pair of these metallic robot lamps flanking the sides of my bed. With a retro style reminiscent of a 1950s robot movie (or Jemaine and Bret dressed in tin foil wrapped cardboard boxes depending on your point of view), these nifty bedside lamps are actually made out of ceramic with a metallic silver coating.

Storm Ambition LED Watch: Where Did the Time Go?

Storm Ambition LED Watch: Where Did the Time Go?
In the market for a modern digital watch that’s looks cool, but is still easy to read? Storm’s Ambition watches might be just what you’re looking for. Featuring a stealthy face design that looks like some sort of bar code when the watch is dormant, you’d never know the time was hiding beneath its unassuming surface.

Do Stormtroopers Eat Bologna on Wonder Bread?

Do Stormtroopers Eat Bologna on Wonder Bread?
Ah, another ho-hum day on the job. You know, you get up, you put on your white battle armor, load up your E-11 battle rifle, and head out to work. But before you run out the door, don’t forget your lunchbox!

Tokyoflash Negative LCD/LED Watch is Positively Cool

Tokyoflash Negative LCD/LED Watch is Positively Cool

Alien Table Will Probably Not Go With Your Decor

Alien Table Will Probably Not Go With Your Decor
Now I love AVP as much as the next gal, but I have to say that I think these tables might be going a bit too far. There are two options available, “crouching position alien” and “emerging from alien egg alien.”

Dear Edi Lamp Revamps Edison’S Classic Lightbulb

Dear Edi Lamp Revamps Edison’S Classic Lightbulb
This modern, minimal lighting fixture from designer David Abad takes queues from a traditional incandescent lightbulb, but the resemblance is only skin deep. Created for Spain’s DAB Light Works, the bulb-shaped Dear Edi (a nod to Thomas Edison) lamp is actually made from metal, not glass.

Nixon R1g1 Watches Prove Analog is Still in Style

Nixon R1g1 Watches Prove Analog is Still in Style
Maybe I’m just too geeky, but I have a tendency to be drawn to ultra-modern digital watches. But sometimes there’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned analog dial. At least the guys over at Nixon are thinking a little outside the box with their latest analog watch design, the fashionably geeky R1G1.

Chrome Joypad is a Shiny Fingerprint Magnet

Chrome Joypad is a Shiny Fingerprint Magnet
I don’t care how much I have to buff my oily prints off of this chrome joypad. I want one. I can’t believe in all of the years that game controllers have been made that nobody has thought to make one before.

Vulcanus: Heavy Metal Casemod by Blacksmith

Vulcanus: Heavy Metal Casemod by Blacksmith
You could do all your computing on a lightweight MacBook Air, but a real manly man would use this computer that’s so beefy that it could smash your lightweight girly-man system into a fine pulp. Hand-forged from steel by an honest to goodness blacksmith, Vulcanus is one bad mofo of a PC.

Tokyoflash Nekura Watches: Analog Dial, Modern Style

Tokyoflash Nekura Watches: Analog Dial, Modern Style
While Japanese watch importer Tokyoflash is known for their offbeat electronic watch designs, this time they’re hitting the market with a bunch of new contemporary watches which are firmly grounded in the mechanical age. The latest watches in their new Nekura series feature non-traditional analog dials, each of which possess a Space Age charm like something that might have found its way onto the set of 2001:A Space Odyssey.
