  • Scour the digital and analog streets with the PowerMac G4 Bike
    by Mike

    Taking gadgets, old gadgets in particular, and creating new forms of art, machinery, and all out geekery is something that when executed correctly results in utter beauty. In the case of this modded PowerMac G4 Bike, it may not be beautiful in the traditional sense, though the fact that it draws your gaze upon its body and sucks you in ever deeper means something does it not? While this Mac went back in time, no longer to surf the digital streets, (as the innards are now occupied by a 49cc mot...
  • Catch the dirrty dirt with the “Voice activated Wall Socket Spy Camera.
    by Mike

    Even though we featured a spy camera of sorts earlier this morning, this variation of the spy camera is just plain cool. Plus, with all of this spy talk I'm eager for some R&R; time with a comfy couch, gallon of ice cream, and a James Bond marathon. Fuzzy slippers might even make the cut *nervously shifts eyes*. Spy cameras usually have one general flaw -- they require the operator to manually push some sort of button which can lead the one being spied upon to suspect something less than kos...
  • Bring the outdoors indoors with the Grass Coaster

    It's that time again. Time for another nerdy item that isn't a gadget but none the less gets our minds a buzzin'. Being the gadget freaks that we are, we're often dealing with screens of various sizes and technologies. Often times, these displays offer less than stellar performance in the sun meaning we spend a lot of time indoors, sometimes even with the lights off. If you yearn for more of that earthly feeling but can't seem to untether yourself form your digital world, the Grass Coaster...
  • Portable Electrolux Fireplace: Portable. Warm. Fire.

    I feel your pain. It's winter. It's cold. You're up at 5am to go to work and the heat in your car blows icy winter's wrath all over your body. Not a great way to start each day for sure. You could of course fix the heat in your car. Though, without money, such things are hard to get. Another solution though far from perfect would be to carry around the Electrolux Portable Fireplace. Doing so as one can imagine brings with it a number of inherent dangers most notably being breaking the un...
  • Geek’s greatest dream come finally comes true: Yenko Design Online Store opened!

    Here at Gadgetsteria, we've often highlighted some of the fashion forward and innovative gadgets, gizmos, and all around geeky things that Yenko Design has shown off. The only let down was that often times, the things we saw were so mind enveloping that upon finding out they're nothing more than a concept with no near-term release we questioned our very existence on earth. Well, ok maybe not that extreme. But you get the point. It's disheartening stumbling upon that thing you've been looking...
  • Microsoft “building” themselves into irrelevance?
    by Mike
    Posted October 19th, 2009 at 6:24 am
    Many know my feelings about Windows Mobile. There's no need to rehash them. However, my overall feelings on Microsoft in the bigger picture are in fact much more positive. Along their desktop OS line, Windows 7 which is just a few days away from public release, is easily their best OS yet and what Vista should have been. But after you talk about the classic computer/os environment, what does Microsoft have to keep us there? What breakthrough, exciting, and even cool technologies do they hav...

    Looking to give your little box called home a touch of the streets? You could hire a homeless man to loiter in your kitchen? For some, the smell and inherent dangers aren't worth the "rough and tough" image. A safer alternative can be had with the Industrial Floor Lamp. Feature a....lamp made out guess again...a street lamp, this particular lighting fixture in your house will throw visitors off guard with it's hulking mass and raw, nitty gritty appearance. Of course, depending ...
  • Best Buy going geeky. Opening “Gadgets & eReaders” sections in all stores
    by Mike
    Posted October 9th, 2009 at 1:49 pm
    Shed tears for dead Discovery Channel/Sharper Image-esque stores no more as Best Buy will pick up the slack themselves, going full on geeky. While gadget lovers have a draw to the store in its current form do to the smorgishboard of electronics waiting to be touched and toyed with, Best Buy is taking the next step with a new section appropriately named "Gadgets & eReaders". The new section will be situated beside current music and movie sections and feature everything from the latest range...
  • Impending energy shortage? Walk a little and make your own with the “Lightening Pack”.
    by Mike
    Posted October 1st, 2009 at 11:26 am
    Just because we love gadgets doesn't mean we have to be constantly looked down upon as energy hoards. If you're on the go and don't have access to a power outlet, powering your mobile geek cave becomes less and less possible. That is unless you're rockin' along with the "Lightening Pack". The once prototype device is officially entering into the real world with the Modern Day Marine event at Quantico being it's "grand awakening" party if you will. The concept is rather simple actually -- t...
  • Measuring Tape Watch attempts to put size on time itself…
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 11:21 am
    While we have covered several different types of watches and clocks, with a few of those being rather simple to read, are a far cry from this latest freak show. The Measuring Tape Watch will force your eyes to do a full gymnastic routine just to get the current time. Hey, I'm not complaining as I'm up for a challenge at any time and this watch is cool as all get out. In case you were wondering, the big vertical line that is most prominent displays minutes with hours and seconds trailing und...
  • R2-D2 becomes gaming god. 8 consoles stuffed within. Projector and onboard sound system added bonus.
    by Mike
    Posted September 23rd, 2009 at 6:33 am
    Love classic games do ya? Have a thing for old beeping robots and wars that take place near the stars? Super. If you fit the bill, you may want to contact the Brian De Vitis, the creator of the R2-D2 Gaming Haven, and get the blueprints/instructions on how to build your own. Owning a life-sized R2-D2 replica cooler is geeky enough. Adding a gaming console to his innards takes the geek factor a step further. However, squeezing in 7 more consoles, an onboard sound system, and a projector to ...
