Grove Wood Smart Case for iPad Air & iPad Mini: More Wood Is Even More Good

Grove Wood Smart Case for iPad Air & iPad Mini: More Wood Is Even More Good
I’ve always thought that utilizing a natural material like wood for gadget cases was a smart idea – providing a nice contrast to the metal, glass and plastic found in today’s devices. Check out two new wood cases from Grove, which will perfectly fit your new iPads when they release this November.

Predator Carved out of a Tree: Get to the Wood Choppa!

Predator Carved out of a Tree: Get to the Wood Choppa!
Predators are the galaxy’s most fearsome and brutal warriors. They will rip your spine clean out, with your skull still attached. And they like to take trophies to remind them of their hunt. So a Predator would just love this tree with a predator head carved into it.

Rubber Band Machine Gun Is Fully Automatic, but Reloading Isn’t

Rubber Band Machine Gun Is Fully Automatic, but Reloading Isn’t
We’ve featured a variety of rapid fire rubber band guns before, but they were either custom made or crazy expensive. XYZbot is here for us poor, lazy and non-mechanically-inclined folks. They launched a Kickstarter fundraiser for a fully automatic and electric rubber band machine gun that’s cheap and easy to assemble.

If you bought Orée’s wooden keyboard, it’s time for you to save up for its sidekick. This October Orée will release the Touch Slab, a Bluetooth multitouch trackpad that’s also made of a single piece of wood.

Marvel at this Incredible Hulk Bookcase

Marvel at this Incredible Hulk Bookcase
Hulk ANGRY! Hulk SMASH! Hulk READ! Hmmm, actually I’m not too sure about that last part. Though we do know that Bruce Banner is a brilliant doctor and nuclear physicist, so he probably is quite well-read.

AT-AT Walker Bookcase: The Empire Strikes Book

AT-AT Walker Bookcase: The Empire Strikes Book
There aren’t many more iconic creations from the Star Wars universe than the AT-AT Imperial walkers from The Empire Strikes Back. Sure, they ended up having an Achilles’ heel (or four of them), but I’d like to see you design a walking weapon that can’t be tripped.

Chainsaw Carved Dinosaur: Prehistoric Pine

Chainsaw Carved Dinosaur: Prehistoric Pine
You don’t need the folks from Jurassic Park to bring dinosaurs back to life. You just need Scott Dow of the Animalistic Chainsaw Carving Studio in Corry, Pennsylvania. He brought this one to life. And not with a petri dish and a beaker either.

This Log Pillow Isn’t as Firm as It Looks

This Log Pillow Isn’t as Firm as It Looks
I was just thinking about picking up some new pillows for our bed, since I think I need something with a little more support. While a good firm pillow can help you sleep better, I don’t think that sleeping on a log is particularly good for your head and neck.

The Midnight Clock Secret Bookcase: The Reader’s Riddle

The Midnight Clock Secret Bookcase: The Reader’s Riddle
No other art form transacts with us the way literature can. It’s very accessible yet it demands and invites us to add depth to the world and the ideas it conjures. Devin Montgomery tries to capture the joy of discovery and exploration that we get from reading with his unique invention.

Neue Werkstatt NW3 Sustainable Speakers: Woody Goodness
Wood is the go-to material when you design speaker enclosures, and these new ones from Neue Werkstatt (German for “new factory”) really let the natural look of wood shine through.

Guy Turns Trees into Dragons: Edward Chainsawhands

Guy Turns Trees into Dragons: Edward Chainsawhands
It’s a sad fact that when nature and man collide, nature usually loses. Many of us hate to cut down trees, but sometimes you have no choice. Maybe it is mandated by local authorities or maybe it needs to go because it is in danger of falling.

Wren V5 Speaker Review: This Gorgeous Wireless Speaker Sounds Great too

Wren V5 Speaker Review: This Gorgeous Wireless Speaker Sounds Great too
If you ask me, the market for wireless speakers has really reached a point of saturation. So it really takes a lot for me to write about them anymore – let alone be wowed by one.

R-Kaid-42: A Complete Arcade in a Wooden Box

R-Kaid-42: A Complete Arcade in a Wooden Box
I guess you could say that most old arcade machines were made from wood, but it was mostly laminated pressboard, covered with shiny vinyl decals. Designer Love Hultén’s latest arcade build offers a much more timeless wooden styling.

Mars Curiosity Rover Wood Model: Curious Why I Don’t Have This on My Desk Yet
While most of us will never get to visit the red and dusty surface of Mars, we have been afforded the ability to get a first-hand view of the planet, courtesy of NASA’s Curiosity Rover. And while we’ll never get a chance to see the Curiosity itself up close and personal, you can now have your own mini-Rover on your desktop.

Invisiplug Power Strips Hide in Plain Sight

Invisiplug Power Strips Hide in Plain Sight
So, how about that power squid under your desk? Is it big enough yet? Well, if you’ve got the same problem that I have, then maybe a more discreet power strip would help. Or maybe it won’t.

Escher Reptile Flooring: Lizards Under Foot!
If M.C. Escher were still alive today, I’m betting he’d redo all of the floors in his house with these wood tiles…
