LAYWOO-D3: 3D Printing Gets Wood
If you follow this site regularly, you know I’m a big believer in 3D printing as one of the major technological movements of the 21st century. We’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg with this budding technology these days, but in 10 years, I bet that 3D printed products and parts will be as ordinary as stuff coming off of assembly lines.

Virtual Fire Wood Simulates the Real Deal, But Won’t Light You on Fire

Orée Board Wooden Bluetooth Keyboard Looks Good, Naturally
As any touch-typist will tell you, the feel of the keys on a keyboard are quite important, a bit less that the spacing, but it’s one of the reasons why certain keyboards feel good and others don’t.

Grove Wooden iPhone Case Offers Natural Protection for iPhone 4/4S or iPhone 5
I liked the design of the Grove Skateback, but I’ve been waiting for Grove to release a full-on wooden case for the iPhone. It looks like that time has come, and you can even pre-order one for the iPhone 5.

Portal Gun Made from Wood, Metal, Glass and a Big Bowl of Awesomesauce

Portal Gun Made from Wood, Metal, Glass and a Big Bowl of Awesomesauce
This wouldn’t be the first, most accurate, or even the first reinterpreted version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Gun I’ve ever seen, but it might just be the most awesome. Instead of being made out of slick plastic or fiberglass, this version is handcrafted from more traditional materials.

STRUT LaunchPort Costs Twice as Much as Your iPad, Doesn’t Make It Twice as Good

STRUT LaunchPort Costs Twice as Much as Your iPad, Doesn’t Make It Twice as Good
I’ll admit that this thing doesn’t cost twice what my iPad cost, because I have the 64GB 4G version, but it’s still very expensive. The question is, is it worth it? This system is from a company that specialized in luxurious automotive accessories, but decided to create something for the mobile computing sector as well.

Manila Rope iOS Cable Wood Stand Out from Your Other Cables
I’ve seen a handful of third party iOS charge and sync cables, but they were all practical and designed to add functionality. On the other hand, this cable is just determined to stand out. Although it will at times stand out as rubbish or a piece of rope.

Starship Enterprise Mobile for Your Ready Room

Starship Enterprise Mobile for Your Ready Room
Sure you can always buy an expensive replica of the Enterprise or a cheap toy to hang from your ceiling and that’s cool, but this Star Trek mobile classes things up a bit. It’s the Enterprise and it is also a work of art at the same time.

Have you ever wanted to own a bike that was made out of wood? The Splinterbike Quantum is a bike that actually works and is completely made out of wood and glue. Also, there aren’t any screws or bolts, which is kind of cool.
