    Peregrine Glove Morphs The Keyboard Into A Glove, Makes Playing MMOs Easier

    Do you spend half your day playing MMO games (and the other half watching YouTube)?  Spare yourself from memorizing dozens of keyboard shortcuts with the Peregrine Glove, a gaming accessory that maps keypresses into hand motions, so you can perform spells and attacks with simple finger touches. It’s essentially just a USB keyboard with a software interface that translates the movements into their corresponding keys.   That means it will work with pretty much any computer (even slightly older ones), along [...]

    Blunt Umbrella: The Umbrella Reinvented…For The Better

    Much as I liked the durability of the Senz Umbrella, its shape (which forced up to 70mph wind to slide off) was exceptionally weird-looking.   That’s why the Blunt Umbrella, which can withstand the same strain, seems a much better solution – there’s no aerodynamic abomination with a few useful updates to boot. How does it brush off the raging gush of high-pressure air?  Blunt Technology calls their improvements the Radial Tensioning System, which spreads the force of the wind along [...]

  • Samurai Air Sword Lets You Slay Imaginary Dragons With Real Sound Effects

    Samurai Air Sword Lets You Slay Imaginary Dragons With Real Sound Effects

    Ever used the Lightsaber app on the iPhone?  I know, it’s stupid (but hella fun).   The Samurai Air Sword does the same thing, performing sound effects every time you swing the hilt (and it’s really just a hilt).  You’ll have to imagine the invisible blade slicing through your opponents (yep, that invisible dragon), of course, before ending their life by thrusting it into their heart.  Haiii. Who says only air musicians get to have invisible fun?  Swashbuckling wannabe-samurai warriors like [...]

    Lenovo Skylight Smartbook Features 1GHz Snapdragon Chip, 10+ Hours Battery Life And Under 2-Lbs Weight

    Need a portable computer with a decent-sized display, all-day battery life and easy portability?  The nascent smartbook category just might be what you’ve been waiting for.   And the upcoming Lenovo Skylight sure looks like it fits the bill. An underpowered computer, it won’t exactly pose a challenge for your heavy computing machines.  For web apps, browsing and data communication, though, it might prove a compelling replacement to your favorite netbook or laptop. Powered by the much-ballyhooed 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset [...]

    iWallet Lets You Cram An iPhone, Spare RAM, Oversized Cards Into A Tri-Fold

    As a rule, I stay away from gadgets accessories that append an “i” to the front of their name.  The iWallet is such a devilishly handsome accessory, though, that I just can’t keep away. Like the name implies, it’s a wallet with an Apple-inspired twist.  Instead of just holding your cards, coins and cash, the non-pocketable billfold integrates an iPhone case among its compartments.  Of course, it can just as easily hold your HTC, Samsung or Blackberry device.  But, hey, [...]

Made by B.E. Meyers, it’s been used extensively in Iraq for warning forwarding troops before pulling the trigger.  Being an extension of a childhood prank, it’s also supposed to have caused many “friendly” casualties, with [...]

  • Umazone Desktop Speakers Disguises Itself As A Tube Amp, Blinks Like A Music Robot

    Umazone Desktop Speakers Disguises Itself As A Tube Amp, Blinks Like A Music Robot

    I always thought tube amplifiers were awesome.  Not that I particularly cared about the differences in sound they create, but those light valves sticking out make them look like props straight out of a campy 1950s sci-fi movie. Umazone’s Showa Wind looks like one of those pricey vacuum amps.  Except it isn’t.  There’s none of the sunset orange glow or that low, familiar hum.  Instead, it’s just a PC speaker with a bunch of blue LEDs for effect – just [...]

    PS3 Wireless Visual Interface Lets You Play Your Console While Hiding In The Closet, Taking A Leak And Pretty Much All The Time

    Everyone knows the PS3′s hardware is too large to fit into a handheld device.  That’s why some  dude named techknott from Ben Heck’s forums didn’t even attempt that.  Instead, he did something even cooler – he created the PS3 Wireless Visual Interface, a controller with a built-in screen, so you don’t need a separate TV in order to play.  Win. Why did he do it?  According to Ben, it’s a happy compromise that allows him to play even though the [...]

Before you think there’s anything high-tech going on, let’s put that to rest. It’s actually a modern update of the old clothespin-plus-playing card trick, where the spokes on your bicycle’s wheel flick through a pinned plastic card, creating an irritating flackety-flack-flack [...]
