  • Geekify your house with USB wall outlets.

    I love gadgets. Could you tell? With a vast amount of gadgets comes a lot of chargers and cords to keep track of. And believe me, I've got a lot of gadgets. Sometimes finding a computer or one of those nifty wall converters that turns a standard wall outlet into a normal USB port just can't be done. So there you are starring at two completely capable and electrically charged holes in the wall yet no way to harness the energy. If you're like me, spending a couple hours swapping out your stan...
  • The CrunchPad that almost was….(and hopefully still will be someday…)

    If there were ever a gadget that the tech world was so eager to see, touch, and play with, the CrunchPad was perhaps one of the top contenders. Eschewing any Apple related gear, in recent memory I honestly can't think of a gadget that so frequently soaked up headlines. While the headlines were often negative in nature, detailing yet another delay or setback, geeks alike were still primed and ready, waiting for a date they could get their hands on this wonder device. After reading the final ac...

    Being so focused and self indulged on gadgets can lead us at times become so focused on cool yet insignificant things when the bigger picture of life is concerned. Like many other nerds, I live for each and every gadget release whether it be a new laptop, phone, media player etc. But technology can be used not just to entertain but to help live as well. In those circumstances, some of the greatest examples of forward thinking in technology can be seen. Ben Parkinson, 25, was seriously inju...
  • Motherboard Lisa the ultimate geek art!

    Have an idea for the zaniest gadget/tech inspired custom work of art of all time? I hope you have some creative chops because the designer and creator of the Motherboard Mona Lisa is a genius. Who created such a wondrous work of art? It hasn't been pin pointed on any one person, though you can gaze upon this site worth beholding at ASUS in Peitou, Taiwan. (Up for a little road trip?) Ya, geek art just got taken to a whole 'nother level. Come inside for a few closeups of this beat... ...

    If I had a million dollars....*insert lofty and creative dream here...* If I had a million dollars, (or more) I would strive to build one of the most technologically advanced and green houses possible. Any way to save energy and money while being a geek haven would ensure that I never left my house. Why would I need to? While I am quite far from such results, having a green home can be relatively affordable and cheap. You can take one small step at a time and work towards that uber house ...
  • Lamp tosses out USB power in favor of RJ11
    by Mike
    Posted November 5th, 2009 at 7:16 am
    50+ USB powered novelty devices and you're starting to get tired huh? It's ok, you can only amass so much junk before the clutter starts to annoy. This fascination with USB-ifying everything will eventually pass. If you really want to stay on the cutting edge, move on past USB to RJ11. Wait, telephone wire? That's old school. In one sense it is old, but using it to power a device is rather uncommon. Take for instance the RJ11 lamp -- a lamp that is powered by RJ11 ports. Why would you ne...
  • OS Calculator concepts entice my inner geek
    by Mike
    Posted November 4th, 2009 at 1:56 pm
    Throughout school and even now, math is probably my least favorite subject. In fact, I would even go as far to say that I avoid it. Why do I hate numbers so? No sure. It's just a feeling I've always had. Kind of strange really. Many in the tech/digital field usually have a fairly good grasp of math and all that it offers. Why I got left out is anybodies guess. Maybe if I had the OS X calculator I would have done better. Meh, there's no hope for me. But these concept OS calculators by...
  • Hi-Tec Art to debut “stick in” LED game. Put your soldering irons away…
    by Mike
    Posted November 2nd, 2009 at 2:10 pm
    Remember that old light up game/toy we had as kids where you stuck in different colored plastic pegs into peg holes and the light inside would make them glow? Now fast forward 25 years and things have become a tad more high tech. That old toy that once provided hours of artistic enjoyment is getting a refresh, albeit this time a new and emerging Florida based company, "Hi-Tec" is responsible. The biggest change to this basic toy concept is that that the "pegs" are actually individual LED's ...

    Cyclists know that space is at a premium. If you're on a long trip, carrying excess, unneeded baggage slows you down and tires you out quicker. Why go through the hassle? One tool any cyclist wants to have at all times is that of a tire pump. Keeping your bike tires properly inflated can mean the difference between a good day and a bad day. A second tool essential to the road warriors bag-o-tools is a light. Many riders take to the roads at night. As such, their bodies and machines aren...
  • Crack open a cold one with the Motorcycle Grip Bottle Opener
    by Mike
    Posted October 25th, 2009 at 10:54 am
    You know, there are so many different types of Bottle openers that come in different shapes, sizes, colors, styles, etc. that someone could create quite a collection. If bottle openers are you thing, whether for a collection or just hobby, the Motorcycle Grip Bottle Opener should be near the top of your list. The physical styling is pretty cool though, a rather gimmicky motorcycle revving sound is activated every time you open a bottle. To each his own -- the revving sound will delight some ...
  • Lightscoop aims to make low light shots more natural.
    by Mike
    Posted October 25th, 2009 at 10:22 am
    When taking pictures in low light conditions, using a flash often casts an unnatural, harsh directional light on the subjects or focal point in the picture. Professional photographers often make use of umbrella like attachments that help diffuse light and give it a more natural glow. But we're not all photographers with countless attachment bags or the associated deep pockets that it takes to buy such equipment. Thankfully nifty and affordable attachment called the "Lightscoop" may just have ...
