Nerdy Mittens for Those Cold Days on the Computer
Thursday, January 28, 2010 3:37 PM

 

 

 Do you ever sit outside on a cold day and regret your decision while your fingers feel like they are about to freeze off while typing on your computer? Well now you can keep your fingers and hand warm in style with these Nerdy Mitten. Made from cashmere/merino wool these handmade and hand-embroidered gloves feature a nerd glasses smiley and on the other the word nerd just in case someone didn't get the first glove. However if you go to MouthyMitt's Etsy store you can request a color and faces or text to be featured on your warm gloves. You can get your own for $26.00 which is not a bad deal in my opinion.

Motz Tiny Wood FM Radio and iPod Speaker
Tuesday, January 26, 2010 3:12 PM

 

 

I think this thing is absolutely awesome. I fully functional FM radio in a tiny bundle, that you can even connect to your ipod and use it like a speaker. The on and off switch is on the back as well as an expanding antenna. The button on the front will skim for FM channels for you to listen. The power status light is cleverly hidden in the bottom left in one of the speak holes.  It is currently only available in Korea so if you want one you will have to stumble through Earlyshop.com to get one. Let's just hope that an American shop picks these up soon because I would love to get my hands on one.

Pi Shower Curtain - Math Geeks Rejoyce
Friday, January 15, 2010 2:32 PM

 

 

 Pi is a mathematical constant that is non-repeating and non-terminating whose value is the ratio of any circle's circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space. So Pi goes on and on and on and it can tell you the circumference of a circle. I thought I was cool because I knew Pi to about 20 decimal places but this shower curtain can show you Pi to about 4,600 places. HAHA I bit more than I have memorized. Perhaps I should get this and study up every morning until I do. How is that for useless knowledge.

iPhone holder that looks like an iMac
Tuesday, January 12, 2010 12:56 PM

 

 

Okay this one is just for fun. It's an iPhone holder that looks like an imac. I am not sure that I would use it for I mean you could put in on your desk or mount it to your dash in your car but other than that it's pretty much useless. It's not really a dock though you can still plug your phone in when it's in the holder so there's that. Then there's the price tap at $30 bucks. I am not sure if i would spend my money on that but that's just me. Other than those concerns I think this iPhone holder is by far the most creative one I have seen. It's so cute, look at it, it's a tiny touch screen iMac. HAHA

Vizio Headphones Concept with LCDs on both ears!
Friday, January 8, 2010 11:46 AM

 

 

Well CES was this week and the internet is just teeming with gadgets and gizmos. There were all kinds of tablets and TVs and hand-held devices and all that is well and good. I however, want to talk about the Vizio headphones that have LCDs on each ear. Let me start by saying "how awesome is that?" I think it is the most impractical thing ever and not useful to the person using the headphones, but I want one like NOW. According to Gizmodo these headphones can display the album art as well a visualizers of the song playing.They are bluetooth so you don't have to worry about cords tripping you up.

Sounds cool but what good does it do you? You can't see the visualizer or the album art I guess it's just for the people around you. It's kind of like putting a TV in the headrest of the back seat of your car, only the people behind you can enjoy it. That and those things have to run your battery down pretty fast. Having said all that I still want one.

Samurai Air Sword – Who doesn't want to be a Samurai or a Ninja?
Tuesday, January 5, 2010 11:54 AM


The Samurai Air Sword is powered by two AAA batteries and makes sounds as you swing it like a real sword. The sword can make 48 different sounds, activated by the built in gyroscope, as you thrash your blade-less sword handle. When I was a kid all I wanted was to become a ninja that wore some kind of awesome outfit and had a super sharp sword. So it's no surprise to you that I was a ninja virtually every Halloween! I would have loved this toy as a little boy, something to complete the fantasy of being a ninja/samurai! I wouldn't of known the difference back then anyway.
