    A Leopard-Print Rolex Cosmograph Daytona… For Men…For Real

    “Hey dude.  I want to sell you a luxury Rolex with diamond and sapphire stones, decked on top of a leopard print design.  Are you interested?” That may as well have been whispered to me by some suspicious-looking cat in a back alley cause I’d think whoever said it was out of his mind.  A Rolex with a leopard print – are you kidding me?  Apparently not, as evidenced by this special edition Rolex Cosmograph Daytona that recently went on [...]

    Piece Your Own Furniture Together With The Jigsaw Puzzle Stool/Table

    Want to turn your living room into a conundrum of tiles?  Throw enough of these Jigsaw Puzzle Stool/Table pieces out there and you’ll be in business. On its own, one of these things would make for an odd-looking but functional stool, where you can put your legs up, plop your ass down or stand on top of while cleaning the ceiling with a broom (while wearing your French Maid outfit, of course).   Slap a few of them together, though, and [...]

    The Necker Nymph – A Scuba-Diving, Open-Cockpit Underwater Plane

    What cool new toy can a guy who owns a slew of gorgeous cars, an airline and a space shuttle get for 2010?  In billionaire Richard Branson’s case, as it turns out, it’s a £415,000 prototype submersible called the Necker Nymph, which is the first of its kind. Dubbed as an “underwater plane,” it is said to literally glide on water like an aircraft and incorporates numerous fighter jet technology in its design.  Instead of using ballast to propel it [...]

    Wireless Page To TV Magnifier Lets You Blow Up The Fine Print

    Reading is great, but a lot of printed text is just way too small.  I have moderately good eyesight and it pisses me off that I have to read such small prints, so I can i imagine the problem those worse off must face.  The Wireless Page To TV Magnifier looks to save those with difficulty reading from frustration, allowing you to read even the smallest prints in blown-up size right on the TV. Put down the glasses and shove [...]

  • Metal Storm’s Virtual Minefields Will Cover Ground Like Landmines Using Sensors And Electronic Weapons

    Metal Storm’s Virtual Minefields Will Cover Ground Like Landmines Using Sensors And Electronic Weapons

    Wars, violence and most of all landmines suck.  They are exactly opposite of anything cool. Even after hostilities have ceased, land mines continue to stay on the ground, playing a dormant trap that will kill, maim and injure innocent civilians years after.   It’s an indiscriminate weapon that sacrifices future safety for convenience – downright irresponsible.  That’s why Metal Storm’s new Virtual Minefield is leagues more humane, providing the same unattended traps for enemy troops, all while being completely easy to [...]

    Got more gadgets to charge than slots to plug them in?  I doubt you’ll be having that problem with the 80-Port USB Hub, a charging hub that takes your lack of USB ports seriously.  Very, very seriously. No, you won’t need a nuclear reactor inside your bedroom to power all those up.  Well, maybe that will help, but it’s not necessary.  Do note you just can’t plug this into a computer either, unless you want your laptop to explode (explosion [...]

    Honda Innova Modded Into A Hypermiled Recumbent Motorbike Posting 214 Mpg At 55 Mph

    If you’re looking for a cheap motorcycle for daily commutes, the Honda Innova sure sounds like a nifty pick – it weighs a light 231 pounds, sports an efficient 9hp 125cc engine and posts a fuel mileage of over 100 mpg.  That’s apparently not enough for Dutchman Allert Jacobs, though, who further modded the bike to deliver a whopping 214 mpg at 55 mph. An avid longtime recumbent bicycle and velomobile designer, Allert is familiar with the effect of aerodynamics [...]

    Still a virgin and proud of it?  Don’t stop the announcement with wearing a purity ring.  Hang it on your wall with a Certified Virgin certificate, which proudly proclaims your sexless life to the world.  Yes, you’re so cool, just like a Jonas brother (oh wait, only two of them should be virgins now – one got married). Whether you’re a 40-year old social misanthrope, a dry-humping maestro or the biggest prude in the world, these “I’m a virgin” diplomas [...]

    The Tomy Ene Bio-Engine RC Car Runs On Juice…Orange Juice

    My RC car runs on juice – orange juice.  That’s the spiel you’re going to make when you’re driving the Tomy Ene Bio-Engine pocket car, a remote-controlled vehicle that runs on sugar power. Your soda, iced tea and orange juice literally substitutes for fuel, as the toy uses Sony’s Bio Battery to draw power.  If you’re not familiar with that, it’s a liquid battery technology that uses enzymes to digest glucose, converting it into usable energy (the last demos Sony [...]

    The Motz Is An FM Radio You Feel Like Swallowing Whole (But Please Don’t)

    Sure, nobody buys FM radios anymore.  If it’s as small as a bite-sized piece of chocolate, though, I might be persuaded.  The Motz is exactly that – a functional FM radio box and a miniature MP3 speaker. Looking no bigger than a generous sugar cube, the device should be perfect if you’ve ever dreamed of surgically implanting a radio anywhere on your body.  Just make sure to have provisions for a hole on your skin, so you can pull out [...]

    Pedal The Ocean: One Man, A Pedal-Powered Boat And 2,672 Miles Of Water

    It’s one thing to ride a pedal-powered boat.  It’s completely another to take it from Canada to Hawaii all by your lonesome.  That’s exactly what Canadian Greg Kolodziejzyk will be doing in July, when he takes his ocean-faring boat Within for his Pedal the Ocean project. A world first, the adventurer will travel the full 2,672 miles of water on nothing but leg muscles.  If that sounds crazy, well, it’s not like he’s new to doing that at all.  In [...]

    Plen Robot Is A Droid For Your Android

    Got an Android-powered phone, want your own robot?  Akazawa Japan’s Plen robot literally writes its own pun: it’s an Android Droid – a droid that can be controlled using Google’s Android OS and he looks awesome.

    Apple’s iPad Tablet Gets Unveiled To Mixed Reactions, Surprising Price Point

    Apple’s tablet iPad finally received its unveil yesterday and it’s a bit of a mixed bag.  I know what you are thinking,  the device is essentially a blown-up iPod Touch.  Steve Jobs says it’s “so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone.”  Translation: it’s a device without a built-in category and we think it deserves one. First, some things you were probably expecting didn’t quite make it into the actual gadget.  There’s [...]

    HP’s Wall Of Touch Brings An Immersive Computing Experience

    Contrary to what its name suggests, the Wall of Touch isn’t actually a giant touchscreen.  Instead, it’s an oversized implementation of Hewlett Packard’s TouchSmart technology, which uses built-in optical cameras and magnetic strips to create a virtual touch interface. As you can see from the photo, it’s one giant computer display – perfect for sending people into a veritable state of awe.  It’s driven by an HP Z800 workstation, so it should work like any regular TouchSmart computer, allowing you [...]

    BigTrak Jr. Revives The Programmable Moon Rover

    Remember the BigTrak?  Neither do I.  Apparently, it was huge in the early 80s.  Being a programmable lunar vehicle (you can preset it to run specific routes), I can understand why. The 21st century remake will be called the BigTrak Jr. and will measure half the size of the original model.  As with the previous version, the more compact replica can be programmed to run specific routes.  Instead of 16 preset movements like its predecessor, though, the reboot can be [...]
