  • Now everyone has a chance at 15 minutes of pure fame.
    by Mike
    Posted December 31st, 2009 at 7:43 am
    At some point or another in our lives, we've all sought out some way to become famous. Whether we were motivated by monetary dreams to the simple love of attention or anything in between, fame is one of those things that so many seek out yet fall short of. For good reason too. It's hard getting noticed and appealing to a wide group of people. So how do you get your foot in the door? A new site 15toFame looks to be a new tool in the tech minded individuals of the coming decade. The approa...
  • Happy New Year Everyone!

    Posted December 31st, 2009 at 7:22 am
    I started Gadgetsteria back in September 2008. Since then, the site has gone though a lot of changes. I thank you readers out there for making my hobby and passion worthwhile and by simply giving me a couple of minutes of your day. Going in to 2010, we have CES right around the corner with countless promising devices and services. 2010 will be an exciting year for sure. So sit back, relax, enjoy the sights, sounds, and scenery and have yourselves a happy new year. See you on the other ...
  • Launch balls, not fists: The Golf Ball Launcher
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2009 at 4:50 pm
    While I tend to focus on more stereotypical "gadgets" that happen to have some form of electronic in them, who doesn't like to shoot or blow stuff up every now and then? I sure do. In direct contrast and completely unrelated to violence, golf is a happy, peaceful game that requires patience and skill. It just so happens I possess neither of those fine qualities which explains why I can't play golf. But where there's a will, there's a way. Instead of playing golf all "old school" and by th...
  • Visiting Times Square for New Years? Why not self handedly power that dropping ball?
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2009 at 12:45 pm
    As much as I'd love to, I simply won't be in Times Square for the big ball drop into 2010. But just because I'm not there doesn't mean I'm missing out. Some would argue that staying home (or at least indoors) is a much better experience as you get the benefit of countless camera angles, more coverage of the event, and of course a surrounding air temperature above freezing. The latter of which is a big one for me seeing as how I hate the cold. Since most party goers will start arriving late...
  • Tuper Tario Tros. is Super Mario reborn. (Hope you’re up for a challenge…)
    by Mike

    Tuper Tario Tros? Is there such a thing? Why yes, yes there is. At first it may seem stupid and unoriginal. And I'll agree, the title fits that bill. But after playing the game for even just a few minutes has created yet another addicting game I must now frequent at least a few times a week. The concept of the game is your classic Super Mario Brothers game with Tetris thrown in. Now that is original and unique to say the least if not a bit odd. When you start out, you do the whole sid...
  • Feel like playing Tekken 3 on an HD2? Well, now you can.
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2009 at 11:33 am
    Smartphones are inching closer and closer to replacing computers in our daily routine. Some would argue this or claim to still prefer a bigger monitor and such. For that, I'd say ok, at the very least, smartphones are starting to encroach on netbook territory. There, happy? Emulators are a geeks best friend. They allow us to play games/ROMs of our favorite games on devices that the console manufacturers/developers won't allow us to or are too ill equipped to support the necessary changes....
  • iPhone/Apps not just a geek’s hobby anymore. CNBC to air “Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution”
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 5:40 pm
    If you ever thought the iPhone and mobile apps were just a passing fad, an upcoming documentary/report by CNBC may have you second guessing the iPhone and mobile applications' impact on the global society on a whole. The program is called "Planet of the Apps: A Handheld Revolution" -- clever. Mind you, this isn't some small, time wasting, fluff that the network is cramming in between "real" stories. Airing January 7th at 10pm (repeat at 1am), Planet of the Apps will consume a full hour of...
  • Fiat Lux Lamp with floating on/off orb wins lamp design of the decade.
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 2:10 pm
    Of all the lighting fixture/lamp concepts and designs I've seen, the Fiat Lux Lamp designed by Constance Guisset and Grégory Cid easily takes the crown for coolest, most innovative lamp design of the decade -- the next decade. Some may see this admission as coming a wee bit early seeing as how the next decade doesn't start for a couple more days. Even still, though I already know how fast technology does in fact progress and evolve, I'm left wondering how anyone can top the Fiat Lux design fo...
  • Mario Candy the perfect gift for the geeky sweet tooth.
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 10:29 am
    If you could reach into your TV screen, pick up Mario and bite of his head, would you? Too graphic perhaps? What about one of those magical mushrooms always running around? I mean, a little trip via some organic fungus never hurt anyone too bad right? If such things ping your brain every night as you lie awake in bed, boy have I got a treat (literally) for you. Mario Candies. Thanks to Birthday Express (Mushroom and Gold Star candies) and BigBadToyStore (Question Mark Block candies), the ...
  • The wall outlet of tomorrow: stylish, convenient, and functional.
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 10:16 am
    Wall outlets -- what exactly can we say? It's a hole in the wall from which electrons spew forth when the appropriate (and sometimes inappropriate) material is inserted. How could technology and society actually make it better? Enter the world transformed with the Rambler Socket. For starters, who says technology and mundane things such as wall outlets have to be ugly and unsightly? The Rambler is quite the looker. Just because it looks good doesn't mean it shouldn't be functional. Th...
  • “I’m on a Phone Mutha f*cker” challenges “I’m On A Mac” for best “I’m On A Boat” remix/parody. [Parody]
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 10:05 am
    Follow that? T-Pain's "I'm On A Boat" while not everyone's personal preference for music, has enjoyed a fair amount of "remixing" the last couple of months (Kanye West version oddly absent). Yesterday we saw a parody movie of "I'm On A Boat" done by SwitchtoMac dubbed "I'm On A Mac". The corniness couldn't be ignored, but overall it was clever and helped relieve a small smidgen of daily stress. Today however the Mac is old news and "I'm On A Phone" is the latest and greatest parody. It'...
  • First ever 3D brain scan looks like rainbow of entangled noodles…
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 8:58 am
    Ever wonder what goes on in your head when you do things such as think, walk down the stairs, smell a flower, etc? For some time now, scientists and researchers have known some basic information about the brain and how it functions. One thing to make note of though is that even today, scientists aren't that comfortable in their breadth of knowledge involving the brain. That's where an unconventional brain scanning method used by raiology professor of Harvard, Van Wedeen. His new scans have...
