This slender and sophisticated wristwatch has every minute of the hour on the outer rim of the watch, while the 12 hours are in a smaller circle in the…

Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard lets you forget about changing the batteries

Using a wireless keyboard has been an absolute joy. Not having to be tied to the desk and lounging back in my chair to do work has made work much more, enjoyable, if that is possible at all.  The only nightmare of using this kind of keyboard is the panic attack that ensues when the batteries die (which always happens in the middle of an important game). Logitech just made the wireless keyboard even more amazing thanks to utilizing solar…

Remote Control Car With Water Gun

This Remote Control Car with Water Gun is a pretty heavy duty little machine. It has two speeds but can get going at 11 mph and looks like it’s going…

Philips AmbientLED bulb saves energy, shines bright

One easy way that you can cut back on your electric bill is to switch your light bulbs out for ones that are more energy-efficient. This does have its drawbacks, of course. One of the biggest being the fact that energy-efficient bulbs tend to put out a lot less light. So if you’re forced to use more lights than before, you’re somewhat defeating the purpose of making the switch. However, this new Philips AmbientLED 12.5-watt A19 LED bulb might be…

Waterproof Mini GPS Tracker

If you need to keep tabs on something important, a GPS tracker will help make sure you’re not separated from your valuables. Of course it will also help you find them if they get lost too. A big issue for a tracker is that you need it to work anywhere. Should it be dropped into a pool or fall into a body of water by accident, it shouldn’t stop working altogether. There is a Waterproof Mini GPS Tracker that will…

Joy electronic kitchen scale with iPod station

Listening to music while cooking makes fixing a meal an adventure. The only problem is lugging your laptop or, heaven forbid, an entire docking station into the kitchen, which will take up valuable counter space. Unless it’s incorporated into your cooking utensils, you’ll have to blast the sound from the adjacent room and hope that you don’t upset the neighbors. It is from this train of thought that brought about the Joy scale, which has incorporated a docking station into…

Solar keychain provides a power boost in a pinch

Being “green” isn’t easy. If you want to use an alternative power source to charge your gadgets, it usually means carrying around something that is bulky and inconvenient. After all, harnessing the sun or wind isn’t the easiest of tasks. Well now if you want to keep a little extra juice around for emergencies, you can do so with a solar-powered keychain from Neon Green. This Piggy Power Bank keychain is only a little larger than your average fob, so…

Don’t have a camera? Youtube makes it easier for you to make and post videos

Making a video and putting it onto Youtube doesn’t require a lot of effort these days. A lot of video editing software now has the functionality to directly export your work directly to the video sharing site. However, if you don’t have access to a video camera, it can be rather hard to make something Youtube-worthy. That’s why the company has teamed up with Xtranormal, Stupeflix and GoAnimate to make video creation a little easier. While you could have used…

Hyper Touch Guitar concept ditches the strings

Some of us old-fashioned folk like to play on instruments that have strings that need to be tuned regularly. Seeing as how everything is advancing so rapidly, it seems only logical that strings would become obsolete one day. It turns out that day is fast approaching, as the Hyper Touch Guitar concept has no strings attached. Just like any the old guitars, this has a fret board, but in place of strings you’ll find a touchscreen. This seems like it…
