I am all for taking up less space on the desk or beside my desk when it comes to choosing my computer. I am also all for power and performance – so for now I keep using my mid-tower rig since it’s packed with high-end hardware.
For years, we had to put up with network adapters for computers that were huge. You know the ones I mean, big fat adapters that were three inches long and blocked USB ports around them. We had the same problem with wireless adapters for keyboards and mice too until Logitech and others started making them tiny.
This ridiculous looking little boom box snaps onto the bottom of your iPod, letting it belt (or is it chirp) out some fat (or is it skinny) beats.
Homade’s Boom Dock connects to your iPod’s dock connector and has a little speakers inside of it.
This incredibly teeny tiny Rubik’s Cube was created by Evgeniy Grigoriev and it’s tiny. How tiny? How about 0.39 inches (10mm)! Now that’s extremely small and despite its diminutive size, Evgeniy solves the damn thing pretty fast.
Earlier this week, I read about a tiny Pac-Man discovered with an electron microscope. But that was just a random scientific anomaly. Turns out there’s a real microscopic Pac-Man out there, and you can actually play it!
LaCie today rolled out an unusual new USB flash drive, which is so tiny you can leave it plugged into your computer all the time and never notice it sticking out of the side.
The MosKeyto flash drive is just 20mm long, and 14mm of that is the USB connector – leaving just a 6mm stub sticking out of your computer.
You’d better hold on tight to this miniature digital camera that measures in at just about 1.73″ (w) x 1.14″ (h) x 0.47″ (d) and weighs only 14 grams. In other words, this thing is smaller than a box of matches.
I’ve got to give to the guy behind this LEGO build, it’s ingenious. If you love playing chess, then you should get cracking and build your own.
This incredibly small LEGO chess set was created by Flickr user Akunthita.
Measuring only 8.8 µm, this replica of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701D was “fabricated in one-billionth scale by 30 kV Ga+ focused-ion- beam CVD using phenanthrene gas.” Oh I see. My guess was a bit off. I though they used 76 gV dispersed quark blastorz CBGB with napthalene and farthrene.
Are you addicted to making your avatars and Miis that look like tiny doppelgänger of yourself? Then you might want to check out these cool USB minifig people that can be ordered to your own custom design specifications.
If you’re in the mood for some tasty treats, you’ll probably need to eat more than these USB flash drives, masquerading as tiny little portions of food.
These Mini Plus flash drives are available in a variety of styles, ranging from a relatively nutritious portion of sushi to a plate with one jelly, one glazed, and one chocolate-frosted with sprinkles.
This has got to be the coolest thing I’ve seen this week. These incredibly small dinosaur kits let you build a miniature museum of natural history on your desktop.
Artist Kelly Farrell’s Tinysaurs are incredibly weensy kits which let you build your own mini-dinos.
Remember those old Nintendo Game & Watch LCD games from back in the 1980s? Well if you’re a fan of these classic precursors to modern handheld games, you’ll be happy to hear they’re back! Only this time, they’re much, much smaller.
Do you like to buy gadgets just because they keep getting tinier and tinier? Then have I got something for you! This weensy little wooden box is actually an FM radio.
Measuring in at just 1.45″ (w) x 1″(h) x 0.75 (d), the Motz wooden FM radio is the perfect radio for dollhouses, and people with really small hands.
