Creative Camera Mounts
Friday, July 31, 2009 3:16 PM



I am a fan of taking pictures in interesting ways. I love laying on the ground and getting a different perspective of. What better way to get great interesting shots then with camera mounts that allow you to stick your camera on anything and anywhere.

The Monsterpod is a camera mount that sticks to just about anything. It has a washable stick surface on the bottom of the mount that allows you to get that unusual shot from just about anywhere. Forget about asking someone to hold your camera to take a group shot this thing sticks to everything take it yourself. Not only is the bottom sticky but the base is also moldable to fit any surface shape.

Cool mount number 2 is a bottle cap mount. This is a great idea for people on the go. I know I always have a bottle of water around which is perfect for this mount that slips right on top of the existing bottle cap.

RFID Theft Protection Wallet
Friday, July 31, 2009 2:00 PM



For those of you out there that don’t know what RFID is it’s a Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID, is a generic term for technologies that use radio waves to automatically identify people or objects. So when we talk about RFID theft it’s when people are able to steal and replicate the RFID of your object like your phone or credit card without even having to touch you or your card.

This could become a problem as the RFID credit cards become more and more prevalent. This wallet however will block RFID waves from entering the wallet so nothing can communicate with the cards in your pocket.

Not only that though it also is a stylish and sleek way to store your cards and cash.

Ninja Star Coat Hooks
Wednesday, July 29, 2009 2:03 PM



I don’t know about all you other geeks out there but I was definitely one of those boys that loved all kinds of weapons, especially ninja weapons. With these ninja star coat hooks you can pretend you just finished an epic battle with a super sneaky ninja that you fought off until he disappeared into the night. Or you could just get them because you thought they look cool, I mean there doesn’t always have to be a logical explanation for everything right?

4 GB USB Wristbands Flash Drive
Friday, July 24, 2009 1:32 PM

 


I think that wearing anything that can store information is pretty geeky wouldn’t you agree however, I do think this is a good idea and would consider getting one. It holds 4 GB of information which isn’t a huge amount of space but at the same time it’s enough to more a good amount of information. Must of the time you are not going to need more than that to walk around with. Something like this would be really handy if you always need files from your computer but didn’t have access to it. I remember when I was in school I would always use the lab computers for things and having a USB dive you could wear would be handy.

Precision Cutter for the Crafty Types
Tuesday, July 21, 2009 3:05 PM

I need one of these!



I don’t know what it is about this little ceramic knife but I think it’s great. I can’t tell you how many times a hobby knife like this one comes in handy. The cool thing about this piece is that it’s made from ceramic so you don’t have to worry about it rusting and you don’t have to sharpen it. I don’t know why but somehow I always find myself cutting paper with a knife wishing I had something like this, and yes I must be having a geek moment.

12 Sided Rubix Cube like Puzzle
Friday, July 17, 2009 2:21 PM

 

If you are a geek and can solve a rubix cube in no time flat then maybe it’s time you give this one a try. It’s a twelve-sided rubix cube like puzzle. I think this one might have you puzzled for a while. I have never really understood why people would want to waist time trying to figure out how to solve a puzzle like this but I assume there is someone out there that loves this sort of thing. For only $11 bucks you can own this incredibly hard puzzle.



Let’s not for get this mammoth of a puzzle either. It’s about $70 bucks but might be worth it for the ridiculous factor.

3D Webcam
Friday, July 17, 2009 2:06 PM

Oh 3D that's so 1950!


 

This is the only webcam that records in 3D.  It has two cameras on it that record slightly different images and when put together with the aid of 3D glasses will make the image appear 3D.  This camera unfortunately only works with windows machines. It takes an 800 X 600 video and can focus in on objects up to 12” away. I thought that was pretty cool. I don’t know really when you would ever need a webcam that can shoot in 3D but that’s not the point is it.

PowerMac Clock
Thursday, July 16, 2009 2:01 PM

It's Power Mac Time!

 

I wish I had thought of this before I got rid of my old PowerMac. I did however turn my old iMac into a fish tank, which I think was kind of ingenious. It turns out I’m not great at making fish tanks. Mine leaked a little bit. All the same I did it and it was fun. Anyways this clock is super cool and inventive you can get one at Itsy a website that sells home made items and much more. Check it out

REW – Headphones Cord Wrap
Tuesday, July 14, 2009 11:56 AM

oh so retro!



The REW cord wrap looks just like a little cassette tape. It’s used to wrap your headphone’s cord up so when you’re not using it you can slip it easily into your pocket and out of the way. It’s a great way to prevent your headphones from becoming tangled. It’s another great interesting product by “Fred” and you can find it here.
