It’s funny that in this wide world of geekery that this actually isn’t the first Rubik’s Cube chest of drawers I’ve seen. In fact, it’s not even the first one we’ve featured on Technabob. However, this Rubik’s Cube chest of drawers is the first one that you can actually purchase.
There’s just something so cool about the design of Nixie tubes – I think it’s just that for such an old technology, they’re still sort of timeless. It’s been a little while since I saw a really good looking Nixie clock though, but this one was definitely worth the wait.
There are plenty of laptop stands out there, and all of them have their benefits and faults. There aren’t many that are perfect, and while this wooden one definitely looks like a nice one, but it has got one big problem: it costs as much as some low-spec laptops.

We’ve seen wooden computer peripherals before, but designer and programmer Robbie Tilton took it a step further. Turned off by the synthetic, “visually bland and tactilely inept” design of some gadgets, Tilton made a keyboard that looks like it sprung out from the ground.
With the number of bamboo backs, cases, and stick-on phone decals available, it’s no wonder that someone decided to make a phone out of bamboo too. Remember the Adzero bamboo phone? Well it looks like the specs have been finalized and it’s heading for crowdfunding through Kickstarter.
Builder Matthias Wandel is known for his awesome moving marble contraptions, which certainly can make some noise. But now, he’s gone and taken his DIY skills and applied them to a much louder noisemaker – his own air raid siren.
