    Evertune Bridge Keeps Your Guitar In Perfect Pitch Till You Smash It On Someone’s Head

    Want to keep your guitar perpetually tuned?  If a Robot Guitar is a little too much for your needs (or price range), an upcoming innovation may be more along your lines.  Called the EverTune Bridge, it allows the instrument’s strings to retain the same tension no matter what you do to them. Currently under development, the system uses no digital wizardry here, allowing it to be installed in any regular guitar.  Instead, it employs individual springs that apply constant tension [...]

    Old Vespa Body Turned Into A Child’s Vespa Rocker

    Who needs an Xbox 360 when you’ve got a grandpa who can whip up an awesome rocking horse?  No one.  Everyone neeeeeeds an Xbox 360.  But a Vespa scooter transformed into a child’s rocker should be quite a crazy thrill all the same. Yep, some kid’s grandpa tore apart an old Vespa and retooled it into an awesome rocker.  The scooter’s body looks in good shape too (probably restored it), complete with headlights, faux-leather seat and a spit-shine finish.  Just [...]

    Cargoshell’s Innovative Containers Collapses Flat, Leaves Smaller Footprint

    Shipping containers have been around for over sixty years.  During that time, little has changed about the huge steel boxes that has facilitated widespread international trade.   A new company called Cargoshell is looking to replace those gigantic cargo cases with something they believe is more efficient and more attuned to the times. Huge containers take massive amounts of space.  That’s all well and good if they’re being used to transport cargo.  When they’re empty, though, that translates to a huge [...]

To call it overwhelming is an understatement.  Seriously.  That thing is so big, the radiation will give you an automatic vasectomy the first time you turn it on.  I swear.  It’s so ridiculously big, bloggers will make lame jokes about it till the end of time.  Do you [...]

  • Beam Light From Your Wrist With The Stanley LED Torch Watch

    Beam Light From Your Wrist With The Stanley LED Torch Watch

    In the world of “mixing two unrelated things in one,” resulting products either work or don’t.  Sometimes, though, they’re so bad you just can’t help but love the little buggers.  That’s exactly how I feel about the Stanley LED Torch Watch. If you always wanted to carry a flashlight along but found it too much of a hassle to keep one in your pocket, then consider the ramifications of putting it on your wrist.  Actually, it doesn’t sound that bad.  [...]

    SubSonex, A DIY Jet Plane That Can Park In Your Garage

    Who says you need a hangar to park a jet plane?   Not Sonex Aircraft, who’s busy building the SubSonex, a small, single-passenger DIY jet (yes, a real jet) that can fit in your garage. The company, which has been making kits for aircraft hobbyists since 1998, is looking at a $60,000 end-consumer price tag for this latest product, which should make it an exciting alternative to picking up another sportscar (seriously, car versus jet sounds like a no-contest).  If that [...]

    Miss the old Yankee Stadium?  Baseball’s Cathedral in the Bronx is now gone, but who says you can’t relive the memories?  Even better, you can do it while downing hotdogs, drinking beer and cussing to your heart’s content on the same chairs you used to park your big, fat ass on with these authentic Yankee Stadium Seats.

    Light Touch Projects An Interactive Touchscreen Computer Onto Any Flat Surface

    Oh my, the future really is here now.  UK-based Light Blue Optics just announced the downright awesome Light Touch, a laser projector that beams a fully-interactive 10-inch touchscreen computer.  For real. It works exactly like a touchscreen tablet, allowing you to interact with whatever’s on the screen.  Instead of performing swipes and taps on a glass panel, though, you do it over any flat surface where the laser projector throws up its digital display. The Light Touch uses a laser-based [...]

    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

    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 [...]

    Wireframe Lamborghini Koenig Countach Looks Like An Invisible Car, Wants You To Buy It

    I get it.  A Lamborghini is mighty expensive.  But pricing a wireframe sculpture of a Lamborghini Koenig Countach at the same exorbitant range sounds like a little too much. That’s exactly what Benedict Radcliffe is doing with his work, though, which he originally produced back in 2008.  After touring it in galleries and art spaces around London (and even parking it in the street to a chorus of amused onlookers), he’s now ready to let it go for a steep [...]

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.

    RK Racer, A Custom Buell That Can Stab You (And Probably Will)

    Driving a motorcycle has always been risky business.  Taking the road on the RK Racer, a modified Buell that can hurt you in so many ways, is just amping up the process. Shown off during the last Sturgis AMD World Championship Of Bike Building, the bike looks custom-built for those who want to “live fast, die young.” Heck, you don’t even have to drive head-on against a speeding truck.  Just make the mistake of hitting the brakes too hard, tilt [...]

    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, [...]
