Lunchbox Linux Firewall Keeps Network, Bologna Secure

Lunchbox Linux Firewall Keeps Network, Bologna Secure
The other day, I came across this Cold war-era Geiger Counter PC casemod, and passed along the erroneous notion that it was created by some Russian modder. In fact, it was built by a guy named Andy over at widefault, right here in the good old US of A.

There isn’t much worse than trying to swat an annoying fly with nothing but your hand. What better way to obliterate buzzing, disease-carrying insects but with this delete key flyswatter?

Bowling for Gnomes

Bowling for Gnomes
While this doesn’t really qualify as a techie gadget or a video game, I came across this quirky game and thought it was just too good to pass up. Instead of knocking over some ordinary pins with this bowling game, you knock over a bunch of little plastic lawn gnomes.

Ever find the need to use your computer while standing out in the rain? Me neither. While the handful of folks who really need to could drop a few thousand bucks on a military-grade waterproof laptop, here’s a much simpler, brute-force solution for keeping your laptop safe and dry on a rainy day.

Xbox 360 Glows in the Dark Thanks to Xcm
Who says your Xbox 360 has to overheat and catch fire in order to glow? This new replacement shell from XCM lets your 360 glow green when the lights go down. The case replaces the entire exterior of your 360 to produce an out-of-this-world green glow when placed in a darkened room.

Elecom Egg Mouse: Not Incredible or Edible

Elecom Egg Mouse: Not Incredible or Edible
While we now know that a robot can cook an omelet, your PC will just have to do with a mouse that LOOKS like an egg instead of frying one. Elecom’s Egg Mouse (model M-EGUR) features a bold ovoid design, in a variety of colors that would make even the Easter Bunny proud.

Little Dude Lights Up Your Room, Holds Ipods

Little Dude Lights Up Your Room, Holds Ipods
While this little guy could just hang out on your desk looking cool, he’s much more interested in helping out instead of just sitting around doing nothing. Not only can he function as a brilliant desk lamp, he can hold on to your iPod when you’re not keeping it in your pocket.

LEGO MP3 Players and iPod Dock: Block Rockin’ Beats

LEGO MP3 Players and iPod Dock: Block Rockin’ Beats
While I don’t think these are officially sanctioned by LEGO, these whimsical MP3 players bear a striking resemblance to the colorful interlocking plastic blocks. Homade’s LEGO-esque media players cleverly conceal their controls into the raised dots on the surface of each block.

Super Mario Toys for Your Mushroom Kingdom

Super Mario Toys for Your Mushroom Kingdom
Are you a Mario fanatic? Here’s a couple of new desktop toys which are a must for any serious Super Mario collector. These excellent Super Mario Sofubi (soft vinyl) figures stand 9.5-inches tall and look great in your cubicle, living room, standing on top of your horizontal Wii, or even glued to your car’s hood as an ornament.

Glofab: Fiber Optic Lights That Don’t Suck

Glofab: Fiber Optic Lights That Don’t Suck
When I think of fiber optic lighting, all that comes to mind are those awful 1970s starburst lamps. So I was so thrilled when I came across these beautiful organic designs which use the same basic lighting technology that begat such ugliness in the first place.

LEGO Guitar Hero Controller Rocks

LEGO Guitar Hero Controller Rocks
When I came across this Guitar Hero controller made out of LEGO blocks, I was impressed. But once I found out it was fully-functional, I was blown away. Built by LEGO fanatic David McNeely (aka Blue Star LEGOs), this is the third in his series of working Guitar Hero controllers.

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like

What the iPhone Could have Looked Like
Leave it to the cheap Chinese knock-off makers to produce this red headed stepchild of an iPod and a mobile phone. While it sort of looks like an iPod Classic, it slides open to reveal a phone.

LEGO Block as iPod Dock

LEGO Block as iPod Dock
These colorful plastic pieces may look a lot like a LEGO blocks, but they’re actually tiny iPod docks. Each block even has some scrawny little speakers built in, making it completely self-contained. Since the speakers don’t even require external power, don’t expect much volume, but what do you expect from something this small?

Electroluminescent Butterfly: Sixties Band or Light Fixture?

Electroluminescent Butterfly: Sixties Band or Light Fixture?
Stare at these trippy blue light-up butterflies for too long, and you won’t be able to get Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida out of you head either. Designers Soner Ozenc and John Wischhusen created these electroluminescent butterflies called GloWings. Each see-through winged critter is loaded with blue electroluminescent wire to produce a soft blue-green glow.
